You have probably already received an email talking about the changes to User Privacy Notice your User Agreement, as well as e bay Agreements if you are selling on eBay. We've seen users asking about it we chose to clarify.
In 2016, we began the process of realigning our legal structure to better reflect how we manage and operate our platforms.
As a result, starting 1 June 2018, eBay users residing in any country but the USA, Canada and the European Union will begin contracting with eBay Marketplaces GmbH, Helvetiastrasse 15/17, 3005 Bern, Switzerland, for their User Agreement, Billing Agreements, and any other agreements that they might have previously had with eBay International AG.
Well, all we really have to understand is that a new e bay has opened a new company in Switzerland, and also all sellers maybe not living in the US, Canada or the European Union can obtain their invoices from the brand new company (eBay market places GmbH), and their own payment will likely be out to it well. There is. It all happens automatically.
Are you currently living in Taiwan, Turkey, Norway, Switzerland or Liechtenstein?
If you are, starting August 1st, then you may be charged on the costs that you pay your invoice to e bay with VAT. Assess here your last bills to see not or whether you are being charged. There will not be some effect if you do cover it.
As a consequence of the change of your eBay contracting entity, eBay Marketplaces GmbH will also be your new data controller for the purposes of our User Privacy Notice. eBay Marketplaces GmbH will continue to maintain your data in accordance with our global privacy standards, known as our Binding Corporate Rules.
Considering that the GDPR (the brand new data security law) will enter only one week before this upgrade, it is sensible to believe they are connected. If you wish to find out more about this GDPR, you may go to its official site.
