You have probably received a message speaking about the modifications to User Privacy Notice your User Agreement, as well as e bay Agreements if you're attempting to sell on eBay. We've witnessed users asking about this so we decided 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, whatever we really have to be aware of is that a new e bay has started a new company in Switzerland, and all of sellers not residing in the united states, Canada or the European Union can obtain their invoices from the new company (eBay Marketplaces GmbH), along with their own payment will likely be out for it well. There is. It happens automatically.
Starting August 1st, you might well be charged with VAT on the fees you pay your invoice to eBay, if you're. Check your bills to see if you are already being charged or not. Should you pay for it, then there will not be any effect.
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 the GDPR (The new data security law) will input just one week prior to the update, it's sensible to believe that they're connected. If you would like to understand here more about this GDPR, then you can visit its own official site.
