We won’t pass on your email address to anyone else, and other freeglers can't see it.
Other freeglers can see your name, profile picture and approximate location. If you don't want that, you can change it in Settings.
We try to protect you from spammers and fraudsters. Sometimes our volunteers may read what you write to check that it's not spam, phishing or fraud. If we happen to find something which is against Freegle rules, we may take further action.
If you put phone numbers, email addresses or postal addresses into your posts on Freegle, other people will be able to see them. If you're concerned about this, don't do it!
So that potential new users can see what is being offered on Freegle, we make some details of posts public, i.e. the item name, approximate location, the description and any photos. No personal details are made public unless in this information.
You'll have seen lots of irritating popups on websites about consent for cookies. We don't have one of those because we don't store any data for logged out visitors which would require that consent.
Here are some technical details on what happens when you're logged out.

Privacy is a complicate and important area, which we take seriously. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us.
