How do I delete my profile?
OurGoods is a social network. The architecture of the site is based on interactions between members. Once you interact with other members on the site, you can’t disappear completely - otherwise, those other members’ accounts would be incomplete.
You can’t completely delete your account - yet!
We’re working on this feature and hope to be able to bring it to you soon!
But you CAN hide yourself from Google
To do this, sign into your OurGoods account. Go to profile and hit the "edit your profile" button. Go to the tab labeled "Settings." Under Privacy options, you can choose to show or hide your profile from search engines.
Do you sell or share my data ever for any reason?
Nope. People can find what you post via Google, but you can hide yourself from Google in your settings.

We want to talk to you too. But, we’re a small, mostly volunteer organization (there’s only 5 of us). So if you have a question, please try to find the answer in our Guide first.
