Information Sharing and Disclosure
When you post a message, your Facebook username or alias is visible to other users. If you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Lilyshop may be required to disclose personally identifiable information under special circumstances, such as to comply with subpoenas or when your actions violate the Lilyshop Terms of Use. Lilyshop may disclose personally identifiable information to parties in compliance with Lilyshop's Copyright and Intellectual Property Policy, as Lilyshop in Lilyshop's sole discretion believes necessary or appropriate in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement, piracy, or other unlawful activity. In such events, Lilyshop may disclose name, street address, city, state, zip code, country, phone number, email address and company name. Lilyshop may share aggregated demographic information with business partners.

Lilyshop will not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with nonaffiliated parties except as specified in this Privacy Policy to provide products or services you have requested or when Lilyshop has your permission. It may be necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Lilyshop's Terms of Use, as specified in this Privacy Policy or as otherwise required by law. In some cases, Lilyshop may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Lilyshop will transfer information about you if Lilyshop is acquired by or merged with another company.
As part of the buying and selling process, you may obtain another Lilyshop user's email address, shipping address and/or other information. Pursuant to Lilyshop's Terms of Use, you have a limited license to use this information. This information should only be used for Lilyshop-related communications or for Lilyshop-facilitated transactions. Lilyshop has not granted you a license to use the information for unsolicited commercial messages. Without limiting the foregoing, without express consent from the user, you are not licensed to add any Lilyshop user to your email or physical mail list.

Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy and Lilyshop's ability to keep the community free from bad shopkeepers, Lilyshop will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement, other government officials, or other third parties without a subpoena, court order, legal process, or substantially similar legal procedure, except when Lilyshop believes in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to protect Lilyshop's rights, prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss, or to report suspected illegal activity.

Third Parties
Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information Lilyshop collects from you. If you disclose your information to others, whether they are buyers or sellers on Lilyshop or throughout the internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them.

Lilyshop is not responsible for the privacy or security practices of other websites on the Internet, even those linked to or from the Lilyshop site.

Lilyshop follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once Lilyshop receives it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while Lilyshop does its best to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, Lilyshop cannot guarantee its absolute security.
