Privacy Notice

Our Commitment To Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available at the bottom of every page.

The Information We Collect:

This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the website. On some pages, you can place a classified ad, make requests for advertising information and submit news items, photos, links and comment. You can also enter occasional contests. The types of personal information collected at these pages may include:

        Email address
        Phone number
        Credit/Debit Card Information


The Way We Use Information:

We use the information you provide about yourself when placing a classified ad only to complete that order and charge for the ad. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.

We use the information you provide when requesting advertising information or submitting news items, photos, links and comment only to confirm the identity of the submitter. We do not share this information with outside parties.

We use information you submit when entering contests to pick a winnner of the contest. If at the time you enter your name in a contest you indicate you would like to receive occasional e-mails from featuring offers, coupons and special deals from local businesses, your name and e-mail address will be entered into a database used for that purpose. All e-mails will only be sent by and your name and identifying information will not be shared with other businesses or organizations.

We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women entered our contest or took our survey, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.

Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
