Privacy And safety
Freegive connects people who are giving and getting stuff for free in their own towns. Freegive never sees or checks items and they may not be in working order. Posting an item or responding to an item does not guarantee you will be able to get rid of unwanted items or get the items you want. Any agreement you reach about any items will be between the person requesting or posting an items and you. It is your responsibility to ensure you are not breaking any laws in offering or getting goods through Freegive.
Freegive members use the group at their own risk
When posting to the group or participating in an exchange, please take reasonable measures to protect your safety and privacy. Be aware! It is up to each individual member of a Freegive group when arranging for pickup of the item being given away to be appropriately aware of the potential risk of having “a stranger” come to your home to pick something up. The Freegive and member groups, assume no responsibility for this risk. It’s wise to arrange for a drop-off at a public place (shopping area, library, etc.); or if you do give a member your address, to leave the item on the porch without mentioning whether or not you’ll be home. If you, for example, are a single woman living alone, you may want to meet in a public place during the day to exchange the item, or have somebody with you at home, so it doesn’t appear that you live alone.
Protecting your privacy

We make no guarantees
Security. We use many tools to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure, but as you probably know, nothing’s perfect, so we make no guarantees.
