Do not publicly post another member's personal information without their explicit consent, and please use discretion in disclosing your own personal information.   

Examples of personal information

  • Full names

  • Home or other physical addresses

  • Email or other online contact information

  • Telephone numbers

  • Credit card numbers

  • Social security numbers

  • The content of a private email or conversation with another member or Etsy employee

Keep in mind that although you may consider certain information to be private, not all postings of such information may be a violation of our policies.

For example, if information was previously posted or displayed elsewhere on Etsy or on the internet, it may not be considered private.
