EBay Assures Consumers It Doesn't Share Data With The NSA

In an odd move, Devin Wenig, president of eBay Marketplaces, assured consumers that eBay does not share its data with the National Security Agency (NSA). "We don't sell our customer data. We are incredibly protective of our customers' data," Wenig told Time this week. Apparently, eBay executives needed to go on the offensive, since NSA leaker Edward Snowden suggested that major Internet companies have set up systems to help the spry agency monitor online communications to detect terrorist activity. That news sparked a debate over online privacy in Germany, eBay's second biggest market. Story
