This Privacy Policy explains to Users of the Swapabee, at (www.swapabee.com and www.swapabee.co.uk), mobile applications ("Swapabee App"), offered by Swapali and/or applications offered by third-parties integrated to the Swapabee platform, microsites, software and services (collectively, the "Service"). Swapabee ("Swapali", "we" or "us"), gathers and uses information collected in connection with use of the Service and Swapali Apps. Swapali takes reasonable steps to protect User privacy consistent with the guidelines set forth in this Privacy Policy and with all applicable laws. In this Privacy Policy, "User" or "you" means any person using the Service, whether by browsing the Swapabee website or installing or using Swapabee App, paying for items and/or transactions through Swapabee using the Swapabee App, engaging in loyalty and rewards programs ("Programs") offered by Swapabee merchant partners (each a "Merchant"), or participating in any other activities available through the Service.

Swapali knows that you care about how your personal information is used and shared, and we take your privacy very seriously. Our primary goal is to provide you with exceptional service, and we understand that you may have questions or concerns regarding your personal information and how it will be used. To make this privacy policy easy to find, we make it available from home page of the Swapabee website at (please enter your web address here) and through our mobile applications.

Applicability of Privacy Policy

This privacy policy applies to all information we collect through our web and mobile applications from current and former Swapabee users, including you. When you are no longer our customer, we continue to share your information as described in this policy. This policy only applies to the Swapali, LTD. Throughout this policy, we use the term "personal information" to describe information that can be associated with a specific person and can be used to identify that person. We do not consider personal information to include information that has been aggregated and/or anonymized so that it does not identify a specific user.

Information We Collect

We may collect the following categories of personal information in connection with your use of our Site and Services, including but not limited to:

  • Registration information: When you register for the Services, you will be asked for basic registration information, such as an email address, phone number and password.
  • Third party credentials: You may also provide Swapali with certain credentials for third party payment services ("Third Party Sites") when you authorize us to connect to them on your behalf.
  • Information from Third Party Sites: When you agree to have Swapabee connect to any Third-Party Sites on your behalf, in order to provide you with personalized Swapabee rewards and experiences, we will collect transaction-level data from the Third-Party Sites via our Services.
  • Social Web Information - including but not limited to your Facebook Connect credentials and email account information. If you authorize Facebook Connect, the plug in allows us access to your email address, Facebook friends list, and public profile (including profile picture). We also allow you to import data from other social web services, including but not limited to Twitter, Instagram, Yelp and email service providers. Social media and e-mail contact information helps you connect to friends and contacts for invitation and payment transmission and sharing purposes (as well as helping us improve the Services and fight fraud). Additionally, another Swapabee user may mention you in a transaction to which you are not a party by “tagging”, “adding” your username in a transaction note or comment. When you are mentioned in a transaction note or comment into which you have visibility (e.g., a public transaction, a “friends only” transaction by one of your Swapabee friends, or a comment on either such transaction), a link to your Swapabee profile will appear in the transaction note or comment and, if your push notifications are turned on, you will receive a push notification about the mentions. You may manage certain contact preferences and notifications in your account settings.
  • Financial Information - bank account online login information, bank account and routing numbers and credit cards linked to your Swapabee account. Swapabee does not share financial information with third party social networking services.
  • Contests and surveys: You may be offered an opportunity to participate in a contest, survey, or other promotion. We may collect or you may submit information in connection with one of these promotions, such as your first and last name, contact information and any other required information.
  • Device Information: Information about your device, including your hardware model, operating system and version, device name, unique device identifier, mobile network information, and information about the device’s interaction with our Services. If you use an iOS device, we also automatically detect if you have downloaded Chrome, so we can ask you which browser you prefer to use to open links from your Swapabee App.
  • Navigational information: We may collect information about your interaction with our Site or Services such as computer browser type, pages visited, access time, average time spent on our Site or Services, date and time of your visit, content you view, features you use, your search terms, website you visited before visit or use of our Services, how you interact with our Services, various clickstream data, IP address, unique identifier of the device, operating system version and app version.
  • Location information: If you choose to use a location enabled aspect of the Services, we may collect location information from your device. You may control or disable the sharing of location information via your device in account settings.
  • Data Analytics: We also may use third-party web analytics services, such as Google Analytics and Facebook Analytics. These service providers help us understand our audience and analyze how visitors use the Services.
  • Other information: We may request or receive other personal information such as feedback, questions, comments, suggestions, or ideas to provide you with other benefits or to improve upon the Services. In such instances, you will be given the opportunity to provide or decline that information.

We are committed to providing a safe, secure and all-around great Service. Therefore, before permitting you to use our Service, we may require additional information from you we can use to verify your identity, address or other information or to manage risk and compliance throughout our relationship. We may also obtain information about you from third parties such as identity verification, fraud prevention and similar services.

When you are using the Swapali Services, we collect information about your account transactions, and we may collect information about your computer or other access device for fraud prevention and other similar purposes.

As swappers who are new to swapabee and swappers who have been swapping for a long time. You might not be used to our App so here are some answers to your questions



Say you are at home relaxing, watching TV or reading a book like always and you see your old PlayStation or your old mobile phone. Take a picture of your old PlayStation/phone and you say this PlayStation/phone is worth $50.00 to me. The app Swapabee finds you something to swap it for, Swapabee has a very unique algorithm that will match you 5 things you can swap your PlayStation/phone for. We also have a tremendously diverse range on our algorithm so you could end up swapping an old football trophy for that Kings Of Leon album you always wanted. Smart! Isn’t it?


Simply list an item and then offer your item to someone else in exchange. Our patented matching algorithm matches you with your preferred swaps in your vicinity. You ask the other swapper if they’d like to consider a swap.  If they are interested, then you will be taken to a chat room where you can talk about the details.


Yes, The first 2 swaps on swapabee are free! After this you will have to add 0.50 pence credit per swap. We don’t want to make money of your swap, a percentage of this goes to charity to help clean our planet from plastic pollution.


Yes.  Absolutely.  Its up to you really, you can chose to have your items delivered by normal post or you can meet with the person to swap.


No worries.  No hassle at all.  Simply reply with a “No thanks”.  You don’t have to accept every offer. 


You can swap anything that you own that you believe has a value to someone else. On Swapabee we have everything from laptops to microwaves.
