Advertising. You may encounter targeted advertising in this Application that is relevant to your location data, your interaction with the Application, or scan results. We utilize the services of one of our eBay Inc. companies, PayPal Media Network (PPMN), to provide you with such targeted advertisements based on your geo-location and search/scan history.
We also use third party ad networks and exchanges to provide you with such targeted advertising. These third parties collect, or are provided by use, some of your anonymous personal information to help provide you targeted advertisements. We do not permit these third parties to collect, store or use any of your personal information for their own purposes. We currently use the following third party ad networks or exchanges to provide you with targeted advertisements: AdMarvel, Millennial, Jumptap and InMobi.

If you do not wish to have your location data used for relevant advertising, you may use your device’s settings to disable the sharing of your location data with this Application.
You may also find out more information about the privacy practices of our ad network and exchange partners, including information on how to opt-out of targeted advertisements (if applicable) from them, at the following pages:
If you are using an Apple device with iOS 6 or greater, then you have the option to use the settings in your device to opt out of any advertising that utilizes your IDFA. You can do this by going to Settings > General > About > Advertising, and then changing the Limit Ad Tracking setting to “ON.”
Social Media and Third Party Sites. This Application may utilize social networking or “share functionality” or may contain links to third party sites that are not owned or controlled by eBay. eBay has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, any share functionality or the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party site. You are subject to the policies of those third parties when and where applicable.
We offer sign-on services that allow you to use third-party login credentials with this Application. We may also offer services that allow you to share information with third-party social media websites, such as Facebook, Google+, Twitter and others.
By using this Application, you expressly relieve eBay from any and all liability arising from your use of any share functionality or third-party site accessed from this Application. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to anyone.
Sharing Information. We may share the information we collect with members of the eBay corporate family to provide joint content and services (like registration, transactions and customer support), to help detect and prevent potentially illegal acts and violations of our policies and to guide decisions about their products, services and communications. Members of our corporate family will use this information to send you marketing communications only if you have requested their services. This Application may use third parties to provide parts of our services as well as to provide analytical data about your use of the Application back to us. We may deploy devices such as cookies that enable those third parties to anonymously collect and aggregate usage data and report it back to us. Third parties that we contract with to help provide our services cannot use your personal information for their own purposes without your explicit consent.
If you have more than one eBay Inc. mobile application, we may share a limited amount of your information within the applications in order to improve your mobile eBay experience.

Disclaimer of Warranties. eBay disclaims responsibility for any harm resulting from your use of this Application. The Application and the service(s) accessed by it are provided “as is,” “with all faults” and “as available.” eBay expressly disclaims to the fullest extent permitted by law all guarantees and express, implied and statutory warranties, including without limitation the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement of proprietary rights, and any warranties regarding the security, reliability, timeliness and performance of this Application.

Some of the information or data contained in this Application has been prepared by FoodEssentials.com. The information provided by this Application is a guide only and is not intended as medical advice. FoodEssentials and eBay are only providing nutritional information and not advice or medical treatment. Any dietary health concerns you have should be discussed with a duly registered dietician or physician. Food or drink manufacturers may change the formulation of their products and the information sources for this Application may not reflect such new formulation. Users concerned with food allergies need to be aware of this risk. FoodEssentials and eBay do not guarantee the accuracy of – and will not assume any liability for adverse reactions to food or drinks consumed based on – the information provided by this Application.

Limitation of Liability. Neither eBay nor its service providers will be liable to you or any user for any use or misuse of this Application.

Further, you will not seek to recover any consequential, lost profit, special, indirect, or incidental damages from eBay. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of damages or the disclaimer of warranties, so such exclusions and disclaimers may not apply to you. Regardless of the previous paragraphs, if we are found to be liable, our liability to you or to any third party is limited to the greater of the total fees you paid to eBay in the 12 months prior to the action giving rise to the liability or C$150.
