This helps us to process the information to the buyers in your area or provide you a list of sellers near you. To determine your location, we use different technologies including GPS, IP Address, Wi-Fi access point, and mobile towers. Whenever we need access to your location, a box pops up on your screen seeking permission to access your location. If you deny permission, you will still be able to use our services but the functioning will not be very smooth. Whereas, if you give permission and wish to change that later, you may change the settings later.
We store information like your IP (Internet Protocol) address, operating system, and time zone. Additionally, we also collect log in information (like last password change, last successful login, date of registration, etc) and the type of browser and its version.
