WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
When you visit the Site, you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis, and website information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse the Site.
Personal Information You Choose to Provide
You can generally visit the Site without revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself, and you do not need an account to post listings, browse listings, or respond to listings.
If you choose to create an account and/or use our Services, we may collect personally identifiable information that you submit, such as your name, contact data (address, email address, phone number), and other similar information. Likewise, we may also collect additional personally identifiable information that you voluntarily include in your listings or transmit with your communications to us.
The information that you provide when you post a listing is displayed in public areas and available to all visitors. Any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information, so please exercise caution. We also provide you with the option to submit pictures and/or a description of your item or service. When you post your listing on the Site, the description and pictures are displayed on the site and accessible to visitors on the Site.
Web Site Use Information
Similar to other commercial websites, the Site utilises a standard technology called “cookies” and web server logs to collect information about how the Site is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at the Site, and the websites visited just before and just after the Site. We, our advertisers, and ad-serving companies may also use small technology or pieces of code to determine which advertisements and promotions users have seen and how users responded to them.
HOW DO WE USE THE INFORMATION THAT YOU PROVIDE TO US?
Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of administering and expanding the Site and the Services. More specifically, we use personal information to provide the Services, provide customer service, troubleshoot problems, encourage safe buying and selling, enforce our policies, customise your experience, measure interest in our services, improve our services, and do other things for you as described when we collect the information. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to the Site and/or the Services.
We do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties without your explicit consent. We may disclose personal information to respond to legal requirements, enforce our policies, respond to claims that a listing or other content violates the rights of others, or protect anyone’s rights, property, or safety. We may also share personal information with service providers who help with our business operations, and third-party websites and publishers so the listings (or the content of the listings) published on the Site can also be published on a broader array of websites.
We take data security seriously. When collecting and transmitting personal and sensitive user data, we use modern cryptography, such as HTTPS, to ensure the secure handling of your information.
To enhance your privacy and data security, we request runtime permissions whenever applicable before accessing data that is gated by Android permissions.
No Sale of Data
We are committed to safeguarding your data. We do not sell your personal or sensitive user data. “Sale” means the exchange or transfer of personal and sensitive user data to a third party for monetary consideration. We do not engage in such practices.
Prominent Disclosure & Consent Requirement
Your privacy is important to us. In cases where our app’s access, collection, use, or sharing of personal and sensitive user data may not be within the reasonable expectation of the user, we meet the following requirements:
We provide an in-app disclosure of our data access, collection, use, and sharing. This disclosure:
- Is located within the app itself, ensuring accessibility without the need to navigate into menus or settings.
- Describes the data being accessed or collected.
- Explains how the data will be used and/or shared.
- Is not included with other unrelated disclosures.
Consent and Runtime Permissions:
Requests for in-app user consent and runtime permission requests are immediately preceded by a clear and unambiguous in-app disclosure. Your consent is required before we can begin to collect or access your personal and sensitive user data. We do not interpret navigation away from the disclosure as consent.
Please note that if our app integrates third-party code designed to collect personal and sensitive user data by default, we will provide evidence demonstrating compliance with the Prominent Disclosure and Consent requirements of this policy.

We disclose the collection of any personal and sensitive information from children in our app, including through APIs and SDKs used in our app. We ensure that our app follows the data practices outlined in the Families Policy Requirements.
