These Services are provided on an "as-is" basis without any guarantee to their functionality, effectiveness, accuracy, or continued existence, and with no warranty granted or liability assumed by the owners of this site. The Services we provide are dependent on some factors outside of our control, so as a result we cannot guarantee 100% uptime or complete access to these Services. PIPS TRIP expressly disclaim all liability, whether direct or indirect, consequential or incidental, obvious or implied, for any damages should our Services fail or otherwise not perform as expected, or for any other reason. You hereby acknowledge that any reliance upon any of the Services we provide is wholly and solely at your own risk. We reserve the right to change our Terms of Service (ToS) at any time; your continued use of our Services constitutes your acceptance of our ToS. The current version of our ToS will always be posted on this page.
You agree that you will not scrape, hack, or abuse our website(s), our server(s), or the Services we provide. You will not conduct Denial of Service or other malicious attacks onto our sites or servers, nor attempt to disrupt our Services in any way. PIPS TRIP website and servers are not designed to accept automated queries; such activity is considered abusive behavior and is explicitly prohibited. This is true whether performed directly by you or by your intermediary / agent / third-party service.
You may not place any of our web pages in a browser frame or iframe without our prior permission. You will not hotlink to images on our sites, except in explicitly permitted circumstances. You will not attempt to obtain, reverse engineer, decompile, create derivative works from, or otherwise attempt to derive source code from the PIPS TRIP website, software, content, or servers.
We maintain the final decision as to what constitutes abuse, hacking, scraping, DoS attacks, and other destructive or malevolent activity, whether intentional, accidental, or otherwise.
PIPS TRIP are common law (unregistered) service marks by the owner of this website.
While we've attempted to offer our Services so that they don't violate, or cause you to violate, any eBay policies, we can't guarantee that will always be the case for each of our clients, at all times. If eBay cancels any of your listings, terminates your membership in the eBay Partner Network, or otherwise takes punitive action against you because of a Service we provide, we'd certainly like to hear about it, but we disclaim responsibility for any damages that result, as described in greater detail in the paragraph up above.
While most of the data we provide should be extremely accurate, there are some minor shortcomings to the data-feeds that eBay allocates to us; we're limited to information provided by eBay's API / Developer platform, and it's not perfect. For example, PIPS TRIP data that we display can be inaccurate in certain well-defined circumstances.
Some of our search tools attempt to display final selling prices for sold items. We can't guarantee complete accuracy of those displayed prices because there's no reliable way we can verify the data we display, or because multi-quantity sold items may sell for a variety of different prices.
We, or our web hosting companies, may temporarily disable some or all of our Services if it's found that our servers or network infrastructure are being placed under excessive strain, whether such strain is the result of increased but acceptable use of our Services, or a result of malicious abuse.
We periodically make changes and improvements to several of our Services. We may implement these changes at any time, with or without public or private notice. If such changes, improvements, or enhancements are substantial enough, or if we feel they'll affect a large portion of our users, we'll endeavor to announce them on our News page comfortably in advance of the actual changes. Sometimes, however, we may instead opt to make such announcements afterwards, or not at all, depending on the nature and scope of the service changes.
Some of our links will take you to external sites. Such sites are not within our control, and we are not responsible for their content, behavior, existence or functionality.
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone and we may do so with or without any notice to you. Typically we will only do this if we strongly suspect you are violating our Terms of Service.
All this having been said, please understand that we are committed to offering our Services with 100% availability, completeness, accuracy, and timeliness â€” and we've done pretty darn close to that so far.
This is the web site of: https://www.pips-trip.co.uk/. We can be reached via on our Contact Us page, and via the email address publicly registered in the Web's Whois database.
For each visitor to our web site/pages, our web server automatically recognizes and collects the visitor's IP address. Information about searches performed on this site and public browser data ("referrers", "user agents", etc.) are also collected. This information we collect is used to track hits to our website, as part of security measures, and to assess a general understanding of how our visitors are using our site.
We don't share this collected information with any 3rd party, with the exception of the following situations:
To try and bring you quality offers that are related to the theme of our site, or otherwise valuable, we have relationships with other companies â€“ including: Google, eBay, and a few others â€“ that we allow to place ads on our web pages. As a result of your visit to our site, said ad server companies may (or may not at all, or just partially) collect general, non-personally-identifiable information such as your domain type, your IP address and clickstream information. For further information regarding Google's policies, please consult Google's Privacy Center. You can see Google's list of approved third-party advertising companies (and links to their sites and policies).
Google, and its 3rd-party advertisers, too may issue and read cookies to/from your browser when you view and/or click on their ads served on this site.
AddThis may issue and read cookies to/from your browser when you click a share/bookmark icon on our site, such as the Facebook or email share buttons you see on many of our pages. AddThis may also track clicks beyond our website, after the sharing event happens.
Facebook may issue and read cookies to/from your browser if you view a page on our site displaying a Facebook social plugin/widget.
Web beacons may also be used to collect public, non-personally-identifiable information such as the country you are visiting from. (Sure seems like we track a lot of stuff, huh... Not really; it's all fairly common statistics and referral information that webmasters like us typically want to review in aggregate form.)
Cookies and web beacons issued/provided by PIPS TRIP, Google Analytics and eBay do not track personally identifiable information, nor do they track activities beyond the sites mentioned.
If you click through, or view, one of Google's, or their partners', ads, it's possible that Google may track your activities beyond this site. Google ads may incorporate a component known as "interest-based advertising" to display ads on our site that reflect the interests of our visitors based on their individual visits to websites around the internet. Google does this via a Google/DoubleClick DART cookie. What this means is that, even though Google won't identify you personally as an ad viewer, it may know that you visited other websites within certain topics, and subsequently displays appropriate ads on our site that are anonymously tailored to your previous websurfing habits. Google does not allow us to opt-out of this behavior, and all websites that display Google ads are subject to interest-based advertising. As an ad viewer you can individually adjust your involvement in this advertising feature by making changes in Google's Ads Preferences Manager which is also accessible by clicking on most Google ads themselves. A visitor and ad viewer may also opt-out of this behavior at the Google Advertising and Privacy page.
Since we don't collect any sensitive information from our site visitors, we do not use encryption or high-security protocols.
PIPS TRIP is very concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information. We employ administrative, physical and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access.
We will make any legally-required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored personal data to you via email or conspicuous posting on this Site in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
From time to time, we may use collected non-personally-identifiable customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in this privacy notice. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will post the policy changes to our web site on this web page to notify you of these changes and provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses. If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check back at our web site periodically.
Cookies, IP addresses, Ads... Don't worry; these things are all fairly standard with most any website you visit and are almost always used in benign ways, such as helping the website function properly and cleanly for its visitors. We fall into that majority.
If you would like to discuss this privacy statement further, or have any questions regarding privacy, please contact us.
