Post subject: Does eBay know what's in my Gixen snipe list?
Recently I have been receiving emails from eBay telling me (for example): "This item ends at 15 Feb, 2018 02:00 GMT. The countdown has begun!"
The curious thing is, that the item in question is not on my eBay watchlist, only on my Gixen snipe list.
I find this a bit worrying. I didn't realise my Gixen account information was being shared with eBay (if that is what's happening).
