Is auctionFB tool legal?

Hi. I want to use the auctionFB feedback tool to display my eBay feedback on my website. But is this legal?

eBay has a policy that says "While using eBay sites, services and tools, you will not...take any action that may undermine the Feedback or ratings systems (such as displaying, importing or exporting Feedback information off of the sites or using it for purposes unrelated to eBay)"

I don't want to get into trouble with eBay, so does auctionfb have some special agreement with eBay?

Hi Jamie,

Many thanks for the question!

AuctionFB has been operational for over 3½ years and uses information
supplied by eBay's API to produce the information displayed.

If used as it is intended i.e. to show your customers your trading record,
increase customer confidence which in turn can increase bids then there
should not be any issues.

The AuctionFB should not be used on any eBay page i.e. item description,
About me etc. It will not actually display on any eBay page anyway so
that won't be a problem.

Hope that the above is helpful.
