You may not use our site or communication tools to harvest addresses, send spam or otherwise breach our Terms of Use or Privacy Policy.

Security.

LocalGarageSales.org uses lots of tools (encryption, passwords, physical security) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure, but as you probably know, nothing’s perfect, so LocalGarageSales.org makes no guarantees.
