Cookies are small files placed on your computer that recognize you when you return to ZipSale and that allow us to customize your user experience and improve the thredUP service.

Other companies' use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, and we have no obligation to inform you of third-party cookies that are set.

When you visit our site for the first time, ZipSale informs you of the use of cookies using an information banner at the bottom of the page. By continuing to browse the site after displaying this banner, you agree to ZipSale using cookies.We want you to understand the different types of cookies that we use on our website. Some of these cookies are essential to the operation of our website. Others are not essential but help to improve our website by collecting user information or try and improve your experience of our website by remembering your choices.

Generally, our cookies perform up to four different functions:

TYPE 1 – STRICTLY NECESSARY COOKIES – WHICH ENABLE SERVICES YOU HAVE SPECIFICALLY ASKED FOR

We use several cookies which are essential to the operation of this website. For example, these types of cookies let us identify subscribers and ensure they can access the subscription-only areas of this website, enable our website to remember the goods that you add to your shopping cart, provide the necessary security your visit to our website requires, and help ensure the content of the pages you request load quickly. Without these cookies, services that you have asked for cannot be provided.

TYPE 2 – PERFORMANCE COOKIES – WHICH COLLECT ANONYMOUS INFORMATION ABOUT THE WEB PAGES YOU VISIT

These cookies collect information about how visitors use our website, for example, which pages our visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages on those pages. These performance cookies don't collect information that identifies you as an individual – all information they collect is aggregated and anonymous. The information gathered is only used to improve how our website works.

We use Google Analytics on our website to help us analyze how our website is used. You can find out more about this popular website analytics tool here: http://www.google.com/analytics/index.html. Google Analytics uses performance cookies to track visitor interactions. For example, by using cookies Google can tell us which pages our users view, which are most popular, what time of day our website is visited, whether visitors have been to our website before, what website referred the visitor to our website, and other similar information. All this information is anonymized.

These cookies track your browsing habits so that we can show you advertising which we hope is relevant to your interests. We believe it is useful to show you advertisements that are tailored to your interests. These advertising cookies use information about your web browsing activity to group you with other users who have similar interests and show you advertisements based upon those interests. For example, these cookies may remember that on our website you viewed pages relating to particular products. Based on that information, with our permission, third party advertisers can place cookies on your browser to enable them to show you those products while you visit other sites.

6. How Zipsale's Services Work
As part of the Services, you or other users may choose to post information to the Services about goods that you or such other users would like to sell through third party marketplaces (such information, a "Listing," and such users, "Sellers"). Potential buyers ("Buyers") on different marketplaces may ask the applicable Seller questions and offer to pay an amount of money of their choosing in order to obtain the goods included in the applicable Listing. All this information will be stored and updated in the Personal area. If a Seller accepts such an offer or makes a counter-offer and a deal happens, then the Service provides a Seller with further details on delivery and payment. A Seller is free to accept and counter offers of multiple potential Buyers simultaneously. The first potential Buyer to successfully submit the agreed upon payment amount (whether an offer or counteroffer) to a Seller will become the winner of such goods (such Buyer, the "Winning Buyer").

Third Party Services. The Services may permit you to link to other websites, services or resources on the Internet ("Third Party Sites"), and other websites, services or resources may contain links to the Services, in each case, such as a Payment Processor that you may choose to link to your Account or otherwise use in connection with the Services. When you access Third Party Sites on the Internet, you do so at your own risk. These other resources are not under our control, and you acknowledge that we are not responsible or liable for the content, functions, accuracy, legality, appropriateness or any other aspect of such websites or resources. The inclusion of any such link does not imply our endorsement or any association between us and their operators. You further acknowledge and agree that we shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with the use of or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through any such website or resource.
