Privacy Policy

This is the web site of: EliteSellersTrafficNet.com.


For each visitor to our web site/pages, our web server automatically recognizes and collects the visitor's IP address. Information about searches performed on this site and public browser data ("referrers", "user agents", etc.) are also collected. This information we collect is used to track hits to our website, as part of security measures, and to assess a general understanding of how our visitors are using our site. We don't share this collected information with any 3rd party. Should you have arrived here by way of a EliteSellersTrafficNet.com Affiliate/Partner, said information may be provided to that Affiliate/Partner as part of site usage and traffic reports.


With respect to ad servers: To try and bring you offers that are related to the theme of our site, we have relationships with other companies (namely, Google) that we allow to place ads on our web pages. As a result of your visit to our site, said ad server companies may collect general, non-personally-identifiable information such as your domain type, your IP address and clickstream information. For further information, please consult Google's Privacy Center. You can see Google's list of approved third-party advertising companies (and links to their sites and policies).

With respect to cookies that are issued to, or subsequently retrieved from, our visitors' browsers: We use cookies to record session information ("temporary/transient/session cookies") so that our services operate properly for each visitor. We, or our Affiliates/Partners, also may receive anonymous referral/sales commissions from eBay if visitors make purchases on eBay after clicking through to eBay while using our site (such cookies are issued by eBay.com itself). We may also receive payments/commissions from advertisers (or their agents) and promotions you see on our site; as is standard practice to enable commerce on the web, cookies may be issued in connection with such ads. Moreover, we use some non-session cookies to track repeated hits to our site and to enhance our services (for example: to remember minor preferences from your last visit, such as which eBay country-site you prefer searching). These cookies are issued by Google Analytics, as well as EliteSellersTrafficNet.com.
Cookies and web beacons issued/provided by StatCounter.com, Google Analytics, EliteSellersTrafficNet.com, and eBay do not track personally identifiable information, nor do they track activities beyond the sites mentioned.

Google may collect personally identifiable information and/or login credentials if you use GFC on our site. We, EliteSellersTrafficNet.com, do not have access to such information; Google may collect it but doesn't provide it or make it avaialable to us. Since GFC is a social, portable service offered by Google, their cookies and/or web beacons may track your activities beyond this site. To avoid this, simply avoid logging in to GFC, or disable Javascript. To learn more about Google's privacy policies surrounding GFC, please see this page.

If you click through, or view, one of Google's, or their partners', ads, it's possible that Google may track your activities beyond this site. Google ads may incorporate a component known as "interest-based advertising" to display ads on our site that reflect the interests of our visitors based on their individual visits to websites around the internet. Google does this via a, Google/DoubleClick DART cookie . What this means is that, even though Google won't identify you personally as an ad viewer, it may know that you visited other websites within certain topics, and subsequently displays appropriate ads on our site that are anonymously tailored to your previous web surfing habits. Google does not allow us to opt-out of this behavior, and all websites that display Google ads are subject to interest-based advertising. As an ad viewer you can individually adjust your involvement in this advertising feature by making changes in Google's Ads Preferences Manager which is also accessible by clicking on most Google ads themselves. A visitor and ad viewer may also opt-out of this behavior at the Google Advertising and Privacy page.

You can easily remove or block persistent (non-transient) cookies from your browser by using functions/settings within your browser, possibly through cookie-disabling or Javascript-disabling functions. If you do so, you are still more than welcome to continue using our site, although temporary/session cookies are still required for most of the services on our site to function correctly. Session cookies are easily removed by closing all of your browser windows or shutting down your computer. Your public, non-personally-identifiable information that is seen by web beacons can be shielded by said web beacons simply by disabling image downloads in your browser (simply closing your eyes won't help).

(Side note: Generally speaking, you can actually surf the web in a near-invisible manner by disabling most functions in your browser, like: images, JavaScript, and cookies - however most sites won't work properly for you without them.)

If you use our EliteSellersTrafficNet.com Widget or Dynamic Watch This Item Link on any web pages, we may collect the IP addresses of visitors to those pages (or maybe just if/when they click through). This information is used to help us monitor the performance of our services, mitigate abuse, and provide a basis for analysis of aggregate data. Such information won't be released to any 3rd party (exception: eBay, as mentioned up above).

With respect to website security: Since we don't collect any sensitive information from our site visitors, we do not use encryption or high-security protocols.

From time to time, we may use collected non-personally-identifiable customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in this privacy notice. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will post the policy changes to our web site on this web page to notify you of these changes and provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses. If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check back at our web site periodically.

Cookies, web beacons, IP addresses, ad servers are almost always used in benign ways, such as helping the website function properly and cleanly for its visitors.
