Hi all,

We're introducing a new Privacy tab in the Account section of Your Etsy for managing the information you expose publicly on the site.

With this enhancement we will give you the option to make your purchase history private.

Purchases are currently public on Etsy by way of our feedback system. Etsy's feedback system will be modified as necessary to allow members to make their purchases private if they choose to do so.

If you choose to make your purchases private, the feedback you leave for shop owners will not display the item you purchased or your username. The feedback shop owners leave for you will be anonymized in a similar way.

Feedback pages will be simplified, and contain two types of feedback: feedback left for the member as a buyer, and feedback left for the member as a shop owner.

The feedback system will remain the same in all other respects. Feedback ratings and feedback text will continue to be visible to everyone.

If you have questions, please post in this thread.

Thanks,
Sean
