  PRODUCT LISTING POLICY
 
  1. GENERAL POLICY:
    1. Barakkuda.com strictly forbids the posting of illegal products. Because Barrakuda.com is by nature a worldwide business, “illegal” is defined in the global sense: any product that is prohibited by any local, national, or international law is not permitted on our site. As a set of basic guidelines, we have listed some specific items below that are not allowed on the site, but as a supplier it is your responsibility to ensure that your product is legal in a given jurisdiction before you sell it.

      Although we will try to discourage the posting of illegal items to the best of our ability, Barrakuda.com will not be responsible for the illegality of any products listed.

      To protect our clients and promote a safe and respectful online community, we also have our own set of guidelines that we apply to products listed on our site that may go above and beyond the law in certain cases. Products may be taken down at our discretion if:
  1. They are hateful in nature, particularly if they are offensive to members of a specific race, ethnicity, religion, or other group.
  2. Their sole and stated use is illegal.
  3. It is impossible to identify the purpose of a product, or if we suspect that the item is being used to persuade users to give out personal information. Barrakuda.com reserves the right to add items to the list at any time and is not required to present justification for removing any product listings that it wishes.
