Showing respect and sensitivity to our global community of members is very important to eBay. We don’t allow members to sell items that are hurtful to the victims of tragic events such as terrorist attacks or natural disasters.
What is the policy?
- Listings and items that graphically portray, glorify, or attempt to profit from human tragedy or suffering, or that are insensitive to victims of such events, are not allowed
- Items and media related to natural disasters or human tragedies that have substantial social, artistic, or political value, such as newspaper clippings or documentaries can be listed in some circumstances
Activity on eBay is required to:
- Follow all applicable laws
- Respect the rights of third parties
- Follow the eBay User Agreement
- Follow this eBay policy
If activity doesn’t meet these requirements, eBay may take action consistent with applicable laws and the eBay User Agreement, and may even be legally required to do so. Such actions may include, as an example only: administratively ending listings or canceling transactions, hiding or lowering the placement of listings in search results, lowering seller rating, restricting buying or selling, forfeiture of fees, loss of buyer or seller protections, restricting access to member communication and rating tools, removing feedback, and account suspension.
