You have received an email talking to your User Agreement, User Privacy Notice, and other eBay Agreements if you're attempting to sell on eBay. We have seen several users asking about this so we chose to spell out.
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 must be aware of is that a new eBay has opened a new company in Switzerland, and also all of sellers perhaps not residing in the US, Canada or the European Union can receive their invoices out here of the newest company (eBay Marketplaces GmbH), along with their payment will probably be out for it well. There is. Everything happens automatically.
Are you living in Taiwan, Turkey, Norway, Switzerland or Liechtenstein?
If you're, starting August 1st, then you might be charged on the fees you pay your yearly invoice with VAT. Check your past bills to determine maybe not or if you're already being charged. There won't be some result if it is paid for by you.
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 understand more about this GDPR, you may go to its official site.
