Management summary: what's none of our business remains none of our business. We only collect information needed for the specific action(s) you ask from us. Below you will find more information about the data we collect, why we collect it and what we do with it once we have it.

Free Site registration
To access certain areas of this website users must first complete a user registration. During the registration process the user is required to enter Name, e-mail and location. The user is also able to add some non-required items, e.g. state, phone number and address. None of this information is shared by default, with only one exception: the location of the advertiser is always shown in his/her ad. You can choose is you want to display your name with your ad(s). Your e-mail address is never shown on the website; users can contact other users by using the provided contact forms. The delivered e-mail will contain e-mail addresses of both sender & recipient and will be sent to both.

All our payments are processed by well-established third party payment processors. They have their own privacy policy that you can find at their websites.

Some of the information collected at the time of the payment is also sent to us. This will never include sensitive information such as credit cards numbers or passwords. In fact, we will receive the exact same information as displayed in the confirmation e-mail that you receive after your payment.

Newsletter submission
You can subscribe to our newsletter during the initial account registration or by filling out the newsletter submission form on our website. The e-mail addresses collected for this service are not used for any other purpose. We will not provide them to anyone to sent you anything; we will only sent you our newsletter. That's it.

Tell a Friend
Both addresses provided during this process are used solely to send the notification to the intended recipient. We do not collect these addresses nor use them for any other reason.

Contact forms
Filling out a contact form (other then the one on our contact page) allows you to contact the advertiser. Unless an error occurs (bounce or undeliverable message) in the delivery process we will not receive a copy of the e-mail message. We will not store your e-mail address, name or any other data you provide in that form. We do is count the amount of times an e-mail is sent through that specific form for statistical purposes.

We use cookies to store some of your personal settings on the website, e.g.: the way the tables are sorted and (if you are logged in) who you are. We do not store where you go & where you came from in your cookie.

We keep logfiles on our servers for several purposes. First we keep anonymous statistics to analyze trends, administer the site, track users' movement on our site and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. These statistics are not linked to personally identifiable information.

When you log in as a member, we keep logs of all steps of the ad placing process. This is for the purpose of administration and for security purposes. This information is only reviewed when asked for by one of our payment processors or in case of (a possible) fraud.

This web site contains links to other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites. We encourage our users when they leave ours to read the privacy statement of the website they are visiting.

We do not do strange things with the information you provide us. We also promise not to share it with others; therefore we feel we should take the security of the information collected very serious. That's why we have taken precautions to prevent others from accessing your information stored on our servers.

As far as the payment gateways are concerned: all connections to their payment gateway pages are encrypted using SSL connections.
