Types of Information Collected

In general, we gather information about all of our users, such as geographic information, what areas users visit most frequently and what services users access the most. This information helps us determine what is most beneficial for our users, and how we can continually create a better overall experience for you. We may share this information with service providers and partners, in order to enhance or improve the services that we offer through our websites and services. We collect:
  • Information you provide. When using MyLittleSalesman.com, you may opt to register and create an account. During this process, you will be asked to provide personal information about yourself, such as your name, email address, and depending on whether you are seller, details about your business and payment information.
  • Cookies. We use a technology called "cookies", which are tiny bits of electronic information transferred to your computer or electronic device to uniquely identify your browser. For example, MyLittleSalesman.com uses cookies to know when a user logs into their account and their activities while on our site. Cookies allow us to make MyLittleSalesman.com more convenient to use when saving equipment listings, allowing you to save certain custom preferences in our system, giving you “recent” searches, saved listings and other tools that need to know you are the same user from visiti to visit or for modifying your member information. We do not employ cookies that track and report your activities on sites other than MyLittleSalesman.com.

    A cookie will not permit MyLittleSalesman.com to learn any personally identifying information about you, such as your real name or address, unless you have previously provided that information to us or you have set the preferences in your browser to provide this information. Please note that you can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the opportunity to accept or reject it.
  • Third-party cookies. We work with service providers, like Google and Facebook, who employ their own cookies to provide more options, such as allowing you to log-in and register via your Facebook account, and to collect aggregate traffic details, such as Google Analytics, while you’re using MyLittleSalesman.com.
  • Location data. If you enable location services on your mobile device, such as when you want to sort listings by distance from you, we will use a cookie to store that information in your browser. If you wish to deactivate this feature, you can disable location services on your mobile device, or simply not opt to sort listings by distance from you.
  • Activity logs. We collect information about your use of MyLittleSalesman.com, including the type of browser you use, time on the website, pages viewed, searches performed, your IP address and the page you visited before navigating to MyLittleSalesman.com.

  • Phone calls. Phone calls between you and third parties selling products through My Little Salesman may be recorded for quality assurance and customer service purposes. You will be notified at the beginning of a call if it may be recorded. My Little Salesman uses a third-party service provider to track phone calls between you and sellers so that we and the seller can access certain details about the contact.
