This may include, without limitation, such things as your User Credentials, information about the User Posting, your location, activity, preferences, photographs, media and/or similar information.

Despite our best efforts, some products or services may be mispriced. If the correct price of a product or service sold by The Black Bib is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
