In order to keep Amateur Recipes safe and improve our Services, we may take actions that limit the visibility of your shop, listings or ads, or that impact your payment account. In the event a shop sees unusual order activity, or we otherwise believe that your actions or shop may result in buyer disputes, chargebacks, increased risk of fraud,counterfeiting, or other claims, Amateur Recipes may take actions such as limiting visibility of your account, or placing restrictions or reserves onyour payments account, in accordance with our Terms of Service, including this Policy and our AmateurRecipes Payments Policy. When appropriate and permitted by law, Amateur Recipes will communicate information to the affected seller about the issue.

In the event a shop sees an unusual spike in orders, particularly in a high demand category, a shop may see an increase or decrease in its search ranking. Often, if a shop sees an increasein fulfilled orders and good reviews, this may result in higher visibility and search rank. However, sometimes a rapid increase in orders can reduce visibility.

In addition, we may limit the visibility of listings or ads in the interest of keeping Amateur Recipes safe,and improving our Services.
