You are a business, and don't have a right to privacy under the law, not just ebay policy.  If you want to get a business phone, feel free.  They have your address too, so get a PO box if you want privacy there too.

How will a Burglar with an Ebay membership be able to track you down if they do not provide your personnel contact info. They give your Full Name, Home  Phone number, and the city you live in, just because another member who you may placed a nonwinning bid with requested it. Ebay does not even need to verify why they are requesting it. This happened to me and within three days my home was robbed. Any member can request contact info as long as you placed a bid with them. You do not need to be a bussiness for Ebay to surrender your personnel contact info.

 

 No questions asked by Ebay about why the info is being requested. They safe guard nothing!
