Privacy & Policy Privacy Policy Statement Classifieds is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated as you make full use of Classifieds. This policy may change from time to time so please check back periodically.

This policy will let you know:

1. What personally identifiable information is collected from you

2. What cookies are and how they are used

3. How your information is used

4. Who is collecting your information

5. With whom your information may be shared

6. What choices are available to you regarding collection, use, and distribution of your information

7. How you can access, update or delete your information

8. The kind of security precautions that are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of your information

9. What else you should know about your online privacy

What personally identifiable information is collected from you Classifieds collects information in several ways from different parts of our web site.

Some personal information is gathered when you register. During registration, we ask for your name and email address. The system will also ask for your street address, city, state/province, zip/postal code, country, telephone number, and the URL of your web site, although only fields that are marked with an asterisk (*) on the registration field are required. This information assists you in navigating the system by automatically filling in certain forms (such as the ad posting form) with your information so that you don't have to continually re-enter it. Once you register you are no longer anonymous to Classifieds - you have a username and are able to take full advantage of the many offerings of Classifieds.

In addition to registration we may ask you for personal information at other times, including (but not limited to) when you place ads or take advantage of the other features of Classifieds. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence. Every page within Classifieds includes a link to this Privacy Policy.

What cookies are and how they are used

As part of offering and providing customizable and personalized services, Classifieds may use cookies to store and sometimes track information about you. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. Several features of Classifieds require that you accept cookies in order to work properly.

Generally, we use cookies for the following purposes:

(1) To identify and label all "new" ads since your last visit to the site.

(2) Optionally to permanently save your password on your computer so you don't have to re-enter it each time you visit our site.

(3) To enable you to "checklist" ads that you want to mark for future retrieval and viewing. Classifieds also collects IP addresses for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers.

We also use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to Classifieds and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

In particular, Google uses the DART cookie to serve ads based on your visit to Classifieds and other sites on the Internet. Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

Who is collecting your information

When you are asked for personal information on Classifieds, you are sharing that information with Classifieds alone, unless it is specifically stated otherwise. However, some activities will, by their very nature, result in your personal information being revealed to other users of Classifieds. For example, when you enter personal information on the ad posting form, this information will generally be included in your ad, unless specifically stated otherwise.

With whom your information may be shared

Other than information displayed as part of your profile, as a general rule, Classifieds will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or under the circumstances described below. Please see the Terms of Service or Use Agreements for each of our products and services for more detailed information about how your personal information may be shared. Classifieds may disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the Terms of Service Classifieds or may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) the rights or property of Classifieds, other users of Classifieds, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. Classifieds may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve our products and services.

Certain features at Classifieds, including but not limited to video uploads, are outsourced to partner sites. If you wish to access these features, your registration information will be submitted to the relevant partner site in order to open an account on your behalf. This new account is necessary to manage content posted by your account at Classifieds, as such content will be managed off-site.

What choices are available to you regarding collection, use, and distribution of your information

If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still use most of Classifieds, but you will not be able to access areas or use features that require registration.

You also have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies you will be unable to use those services of Classifieds that require registration in order to participate. These services include the identification of new ads that have been posted since your last visit, auto-filling of the logon form, and the Checklist feature. You can still use most of the features of Classifieds even if you do not accept cookies. Classifieds does not sell or rent user information to anyone. We will notify you at the time of data collection or transfer if your data will be shared with a third party and you will always have the option of not permitting the transfer. If you do not wish to allow your data to be shared, you can choose not to use a particular service.
