Hi. You do properly disclose Google Adsense, which is good (does the AdSense TOS allow your site by the way?), but you are not currently disclosing Google Analytics.
eBay may even prohibit the sales of parts you are advertising:
<quote user="http://pages.ebay.com/co/es-co/help/pol ... nives.html">
Parts or accessories for assault weapons. Listings that mention capability with an assault weapon, even if the part or accessory fits non-assault weapons, are also prohibited.

eBay IS in California in case you haven't noticed. Probably better to move your commerce to a site more suited to firearms such as GunBroker. (note that I have no affiliation or experience with this company)

What eBay does and does not allow is their business. None of the auctions listed on the site are mine - I'm not selling anything, just linking to good prices on parts.

As far as adsense - the NRA and other firearm companies advertise on adsense, so I guess there isn't a problem

The purpose of the site is for amateur gunsmiths to exchange information, lead each other to good pricing or parts, and give/receive advise while building rifles. It's AR Builders - not AR Sellers

Since you are personally selecting these items, you may want to consider looking at a gun-oriented site instead just to be safe.

As for Google Analytics, this webpage will describe the necessary changes to your privacy policy:
[green]https[/green]://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html
In particular, check section 7.

Your SSL Labs check came up [green]A-[/green].
To get it to A+, if you have control over your server configuration, make it prefer TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384 and TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 if possible, and post an HSTS HTTP header on your HTTPS server.
If you are using shared hosting, ask your hosting provider to make the necessary configuration changes, though you should still be able to add the HSTS header yourself.

Hi,

I don't see anything wrong with the site. Fix the Privacy Policy and I will review again and come back with a positive evaluation. Cheers.

Just as a heads-up your Terms of Use page is currently blank. May want to give that a once-over with your attorneys.

Yeah, I'm sure I have that Terms of Use copy around here somewhere. Thanks for the reminder to cross my I's and dot my T's

Nice work. This is the kind of exchange I like to see on the forum and is a great example of how the vetting process should really proceed.
