We may place “cookies” (a “cookie” is a small files placed on the hard drive of your computer) on your computer when you visit portions of ExpAds.

Using Information from ExpAds
You may use personal information gathered from ExpAds only to follow up with another user about a specific posting, not to send spam or collect personal information from someone who hasn’t agreed to that. A spam email includes UCE (unsolicited commercial emails promoting a commercial service or product), hoaxes (e.g. virus warnings), political advocacy, religious messages and chain letters.

Communications and email tools
You agree to receive marketing communications from us unless you tell us that you prefer not to receive such communications. If you don’t wish to receive marketing communications from us, simply indicate your preference by following the directions provided with the communication.

You may not use our site or communication tools to harvest addresses, send spam or otherwise breach our Terms of Use or Privacy Policy. We may automatically scan and manually filter messages sent via our communication tools for malicious activity or prohibited content, but we do not permanently store such messages. If you use our tools to send content to a friend, we don’t permanently store your friends’ addresses or use or disclose them for marketing purposes. To report spam from other users, please contact us.

Access, Modification, and Deletion
You can see, modify or erase your personal information by reviewing your posting or account status page. Contact us here to review any personal information we store that is not available on ExpAds. There may be a charge associated with such requests but these will not exceed the amounts permitted by law. We delete personal information when we no longer need it for the purposes we described earlier. We retain personal information as permitted by law to resolve disputes, enforce our policies; and prevent bad guys from coming back.

Security
We use many tools to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure, but as you probably know, nothing’s perfect, so we make no guarantees.

General
We may update this policy at any time, with updates taking effect when you next post or 30 days after we post the updated policy on the site, whichever is sooner. If we or our corporate affiliates are involved in a merger or acquisition, we may share personal information with another company, but this policy will continue to apply. If you have any questions about this policy please contact us.
