BrickLink respects the privacy of our members. BrickLink does not send you unsolicited e-mail or sell your e-mail address to 3rd parties and will never give out your address and e-mail address to anyone except to those registered BrickLink members with whom you do business. Your personal information including any or all of your data can be however provided to verified law enforcement who are investigating an illegal activity or a crime.
BrickLink stores cookies on your computer which contain your login info as well as counters and identifiers to deliver content specific to you. Users who do not allow cookies will not be able to login to the site and therefore will not have access to any area that a registered member or registered seller has access to.
Name, Address and E-Mail Address:
Your name, address and e-mail address is e-mailed to both the buyer and seller when an order is submitted. After the order is submitted, both the buyer and seller may view each other's name, address and e-mail address by going into Orders Placed or Orders Received. Our system checks if you have done business with a member before revealing you their address. The address and e-mail address is viewable online by the buyer and seller until the order is purged from the system (180 days from the order date)
Posting other member's address, e-mail address or phone number in the Discussion Forum is prohibited and results in the post being Cancelled by a Discussion Forum Moderator when spotted.
Feedback you received from your buyer or seller containing your personally identifying information such as your name or e-mail address is a valid reason for removal of the feedback on the Feedback Removal Request page.
If another member has posted your personally identifying information such as your address or e-mail address on their Splash Page or About Me Page, you can report that member on the Problem with Member page.
IP Address and Last Login Date:
BrickLink keeps track of your IP address which is recorded upon each login. The buyer's IP address is provided to the seller on the Order Notification E-Mail that is sent to the buyer and the seller at the time an order is placed to help the seller determine if a buyer has 2 or more profiles on the system. Buyer and seller can view each other's last login date and time on the Orders Placed or Orders Received page to help determine if there is a problem in communication.
