Jipio is both a marketplace and a community. We offer several features that allow members to connect and communicate in public or semi-public spaces. Please use common sense and good judgement when posting in these community/group spaces or sharing your personal information with others on Jipio. Be aware that any personal information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by others, or could be used to send you unsolicited messages. Jipio generally does not remove content from community spaces, and your posts may remain public after your account is closed. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to post in community spaces on Jipio. Another Jipio member may add you to receive updates about your public site activity (like items you are selling and public Favorites). You may choose to make certain activities private in your account settings. After a member has added you, you have the option to block that member if you do not wish to share your updates with that specific person.
