When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Supplemental Terms of Use

BarterBirds (collectively, “our,” “us,” or “we”) operate websites, provide products and services through mobile and other applications, and develop software that are governed, as applicable, by our terms of use (our “TOU”). Certain terms used in this document have the meanings set forth in our TOU. These supplemental terms (the “Supplemental Terms of Use” or this “Supplemental TOU”) apply to our sites and services related to our classifieds sites and services and are incorporated into our TOU. If there is any conflict between this Supplemental TOU and our TOU, this Supplemental TOU will control. This Supplemental TOU does not apply to those sites and services that do not display or link to this Supplemental TOU, or that have their own supplemental terms of use. By using our sites and services, you are a “user” and you accept and agree to our TOU and this Supplemental TOU as a legal contract between you and us.

Overview of Classifieds

This Supplemental TOU establishes guidelines to ensure the quality of the classified advertisements (“Classifieds”). Please remember Classifieds are posted by others. We do not own or sell the items listed on the site. The actual contract for sale is directly between the sellers and buyers. Sellers and buyers are solely responsible for all aspects of the transactions in which they choose to participate. All transactions conducted on our sites must be consistent with any applicable laws, this Supplemental TOU and our TOU and Privacy Policy (together the “Classifieds Policies”) which are incorporated herein by this reference. We reserve the right to reject or remove any Classifieds listing that is not consistent with the letter or spirit of our Policies or the law. Please review this Supplemental TOU and make sure any transactions you conduct fully comply.

We provide these sites as a platform for users to connect with one another. We do not screen or control users who may sell or buy on Classifieds, nor do we review or authenticate all Classifieds listings and items offered for sale. Therefore, users of this service should be aware that:

  • Sellers and buyers are completely and solely responsible for negotiating the purchase, sale and exchange of goods or services.
  • Sellers and buyers must resolve any disputes that may arise from Classifieds transactions amongst themselves and without our involvement.
  • Sellers and buyers are responsible for researching and complying with any applicable laws, regulations or restrictions on items, services, or manner of sale or exchange that may pertain to transactions in which they participate.
  • Sellers and buyers are responsible for all applicable taxes and for all costs incurred by participating in this site.
