Information we collect
Our main purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with an enjoyable, customized, and efficient experience on our Site. It is our policy to never willfully disclose any personal information about our registered users to the general public without their consent. Mahaj collects information from you when you register and conduct certain activities on the Site. We collect your full name, valid telephone number, contact/billing information, email address, and shipping address. Most of this information is collected only when you decide to become a seller on the site. Each Member must create a unique user id and password. We also provide you the opportunity to create a profile on the Site, which, depending on your preferences can be public or private. Please note that any information you select to provide in your public profile or via other public areas of the Site can be viewed and used by other Members of these forums to send you unsolicited messages. Mahaj is not responsible for the personal information users' elect to disclose in public forums and we encourage you to use discretion.
How is my information used?
The information collected from Mahaj Members is used to improve product offerings, customize our Site's content and layout, and for marketing and statistical effort. Occasionally, we will send you emails about our new services or promotions. You can always opt-out of receiving any information from us by updating your account preferences in your account or by using the unsubscribe link contained in each email. To change access, delete, or modify any of your personal information can be accomplished by logging into your account on the Site. We do reserve the right to send users service and notification emails, which are considered a part of your account; given that these messages are not promotional in nature, you generally cannot opt-out of account notifications without deleting your account.
Who will see my personal information?

· In order to complete the transaction, the buyer and seller are provided with each others email and postal address;
· When making an offer, the seller can view your user ID, rating and your city.
