I noticed today for the first time that eBay have started automatically listing their ads on Gumtree (which is owned by eBay). As far as I can tell this is being done automatically by eBay without notifying their sellers. I'm assuming there is something vague that covers this within their t&cs but expect that most people will be completely oblivious to this action. The ads are placed automatically by Ebay with an eBay link. They are not linked to Gumtree accounts so cannot be removed on the Gumtree website itself. At the moment there is no eBay option to opt-out of this so the only way to prevent an eBay advert appearing on Gumtree is to remove it from eBay. As well as obvious privacy concerns this can also lead to double listings with potentially different prices on Gumtree if the eBay seller has also listed the item on Gumtree. Madness? Privacy concern? Perfectly justifiable? - What do you think?
