Spam (unsolicited e-mail)

Registered users of this site agree to receive e-mail confirmation messages when their listings are placed online or updated by the site administrator, and prior to a listing's expiration date.

Several steps are taken to ensure that a user can not be unknowingly signed up for a service that he or she does not wish to receive. We discourage misuse/abuse of sign-up forms by (a) recording the I.P. address of any computer submitting a sign-up form, and (b) requiring that the user enter a password which is sent to the e-mail address in question before actually activating the e-mail based service.

Cookies

This site uses cookies to aid in navigation for both registered users as well as those just viewing the site. Browsers which do not accept cookies are NOT able to place listings.

Cookies are NOT used to monitor individual users' activities at this site. If you are at all concerned about this, please feel free to delete your cookies after each visit.
