As well as describing how users may use TradeSkillMaster's services, this page also contains information on how TradeSkillMaster will use data which is collected from users. Please read the details below carefully to familiarize yourself with these terms.

Website Data Usage
We take great care when handling any and all personal (aka user-specific) data which we gather during the registration process. Thus, the following guidelines will be followed.
- We will never sell any personal data which we collect to any third party or affiliate. Basic account information may be securely shared with affiliates with your express permission only.
- All personal user-data is considered private and wherever practical, security measures will be implemented to prevent access by those outside of the TradeSkillMaster team.
- Passwords are securely hashed in accordance with widely-accepted security standards and are never stored in plain-text.
- We will never send you spam. We will only contact you via email in the case of important information regarding changes to or problems with your account unless you give us express permission to do so otherwise (such as for deal notifications).
Application Data Usage
In order to provide its features, the application requires access to data on your hard drive and communication of your TradeSkillMaster account details and your TradeSkillMaster addon settings with the TradeSkillMaster website. The following points describe how we handle your data.
- No personally identifiable information (other than WoW account names) is gathered from your hard drive or sent to our website. The application accesses a handful of files in your World of Warcraft directory in order to provide various features and may access other locations only with your express permission.
- The application may collect and send non-personally identifiable information to the TradeSkillMaster servers for the purpose of tracking usage and/or improving the services which we provide. This may include, but is not limited to, TradeSkillMaster groups, TradeSkillMaster operations, sales statistics, and other addon settings and data.
- You should be aware that the application does not generally use encryption when communicating with the TradeSkillMaster servers. However, the application never sends your email or password in plain-text (unencrypted) to ensure they can not be sniffed by a nefarious third-party and to ensure the security of your account.
We reserve the right to modify these terms at any time without notice. If you have any questions or concerns, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Last updated on August 9th, 2014.
