Privacy and Cookies

At Re-Used, we take online safety very seriously. We are aware of fraudsters’ ways of exploiting customers, including scams by email or text message, posing as Re-Used. 

Here are our few tips to help you stay safe when you shop online.

1. Personal accounts protected by passwords

a. Prefer a strong password

Having a strong password is one of the easiest ways to protect your online accounts and data.

We recommend that you use a password with at least 10 characters, mixing numbers, upper and lower case letters as well as two or three symbols / special characters.

Never use easily accessible personal information on social networks such as the names of your pets, family members, hobbies, etc.

Finally, for your other accounts, we strongly recommend that you choose a password different from the one you use on Re-Used.

b. Having trouble remembering all your passwords?

Simplify the management of your many complex passwords with a password manager. Most are integrated into your Internet browser (such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge or Firefox). Other password managers are part of the operating system of your smartphone or tablet (such as Apple Key Chain).

You can also choose to use one of the standalone Password Manager platforms available to help you manage multiple accounts.

2. Pay attention to safety signs when shopping online at. 

a. Look for the padlock

Buy only on secure sites that have a padlock to the left of the URL. Keep an eye on this icon to make sure the site is safe.

b. Check privacy settings

Make sure your privacy settings are up to date, especially when it comes to social media accounts.

c. Choose two-step authentication to your accounts

On sensitive accounts (for example your emails, your financial information ro even your social media accounts), activate the 2-factor authentication, multi-factor authentication or one-time passwords on your accounts. This strengthens the security of access to your personal data and makes it possible to control that it is you who have access to it.
