At times, we may look across multiple users to identify problems or resolve disputes, and in particular we may examine your information to identify users using multiple User IDs or aliases.

9. If you choose to list an item for sale on our site or to buy, order and/or purchase from our site or otherwise provide us with your credit card information, we use your address and billing information to bill you and to provide associated support.

10. Due to the existing regulatory environment, we cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other personally identifiable information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. By way of example (without limiting the foregoing), we may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or users may abuse or misuse your information that they collect from our site. Therefore, although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personally identifiable information or private communications will always remain private.

11. Legal Requests - BOOKSXYZ, INC. cooperates with law enforcement inquiries, as well as other third parties, to enforce laws, such as intellectual property rights, fraud and other rights. We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose us or you to legal liability. Additionally, BOOKSXYZ, INC. reserves the right (and you authorize BOOKSXYZ, INC.) to communicate any information about you (including, but not limited to your policy violations, items bought and sold, and items status), to other users and law enforcement as we, in our sole discretion, determine necessary or appropriate to maintain a level of trust and safety in our community and to enforce our User Agreement Policy and any posted policies or rules applicable to services you use through our site.

12.

Note that law enforcement personnel and other rights holders are given different rights with respect to information they access.

13. You are responsible for all actions taken with your User ID and password, including fees. Therefore we do not recommend that you disclose your BOOKSXYZ, INC. password to any third parties. If you choose to share your User ID and password or your information with third parties to provide you additional services, you are responsible for all actions taken with your User ID and password and therefore you should review that third party's privacy policy.

Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password.

To the extent that you disclose your information to other parties, whether they are Booklisters or Customers on our site or other sites throughout the Internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. Since BOOKSXYZ, INC. does not control the privacy policies of third parties, you are subject to the privacy policies of that third party. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.
