YUMANI PRIVACY POLICY (Revised 10/7/12)

Welcome to Yumani. The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to disclose to you what information we collect and how we may use it, as well as the choices you have regarding our collection and use of information.

Yumani is committed to protecting your privacy. We use the information we collect about you in order to initiate, process and help complete the transactions that are facilitated by and through this web site (the "Site") and to provide you with a more personalized experience on our Site.

We have created this Privacy Policy in order to communicate to you our firm commitment to protecting the privacy of all of our buyers, sellers and visitors. This Privacy Policy applies to the Site and all related sites, applications, services, and tools operated by Yumani where this policy is specifically referenced. Except as otherwise discussed in this Privacy Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you online.

Yumani may change this policy from time to time. If so, any such changes will be posted on this page. All amended terms automatically take effect 30 days after they are initially posted on the site of its information collection practices. We recommend that you consult this page frequently so that you are aware of our latest policy. Your continued use of the Site shall constitute your acceptance of such revised Privacy Policy.

Information we collect and how it is used

You can browse the Site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. When we use the term "personal information" we mean information that can be associated with a specific person and can be used to identify that person. We do not consider personal information to include information that has been made anonymous so that it does not identify a specific user.

If you sign up for an account with us, you give us your personal information, and you are not anonymous to us. Our servers are located in the United States. If you choose to provide us with personal information, you consent to the transfer and storage of that information on our servers located in the United States.

We collect the following types of personal information on and through the Site:

- personal information that can be used to contact and/or identify you, such as email address, phone number, mobile telephone number, and physical contact information;

- information based on or derived from your transactions and other activities on or through the Site (such as items you buy or attempt to buy, sell or attempt to sell, comments and other content you generate or that relates to your account), shipping, billing, and other information you provide to purchase or ship an item

- personal and other information you provide to us through your interaction with us, the Site or through other interactive and social media channels (provided you accept such sharing either on the Site or through the other social media channel) , such as chat rooms, forums, emails, and could include information shared by you from other social applications, services, or websites or information related to your navigation of the Site and/or your physical location

- personal or other information we ask you to provide to us that we use for authentication or other internal administrative purpose (e.g. a password retrieval question or information related to a disputed transaction);

- personal and other information we may obtain from third parties such as whether a transaction was completed, comments, navigation data; and credit check information to the extent permitted by law

How we use information

The main reason we use information is to provide you with our services. This includes, for example, operating the Site, facilitating and administering transactions; collecting fees; and communicating with you regarding the Site. In doing so we may combine information we have collected on our own with information obtained from third parties.

To facilitate some transactions, including but not limited to activities on the Site such as registration, facilitating purchases, contest entry, and "Send to a Friend" we may pre-populate form fields with your personal information in order to minimize data entry. You may, in all cases and at your discretion, review and edit your information as it is displayed before submitting the form or transaction.

We may also use your information for our internal business purposes, such as data analysis, for audits, for fraud prevention and for other internal purposes.

We do not sell your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes. We may use your personal information to send you information about special offers or specific buying or selling opportunities provided by us or third parties. If you do not wish to receive marketing communications from us, you may opt-out by following the procedures indicated in the communication or by modifying your preferences in member profile.

Disclosing your information
