Use and Sharing of Information Collected
We respect your privacy. We will not sell or disclose your name, email address, or other personal information to third parties without your consent, except as specified in our Policy.
As part of the buying and selling process, we will facilitate the sharing of information between the two users involved in the transaction, such as the other buyer’s email address, shipping address, and payment information. By making a sale or a purchase on BarkYours, you are directing us to share your information in this way. We expect you to respect the privacy of the member whose information you receive. Your ability to use this information extends to all marketplace related communication or for any transaction related communications. You are not granted the ability to use the information for unsolicited commercial messages or unauthorized transactions. Without express consent from that person, you must not add any user to your email or physical mailing list or misuse any user’s personal information.
We use services provided by third-parties such as payment processing companies like Stripe and PayPal. We may share contact data with those companies to the extent permitted under this Policy and for the purpose specified by you.
In the case of a business transition such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such business transition may occur and that disclosure of your personal information in that context is permitted by this Policy. In the event of a business transition, other than disclosure to the new owner(s), your personal information would continue to be treated in the manner outlined in this Policy.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and after it is received.
Unfortunately, no method of transmission over the internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
