Personal data we collect, why we collect it and steps we take to protect your privacy

We believe the Internet is being exploited to the detriment of personal privacy by large corporations engaged in surveillance for the benefit of their profit. Therefore, we attempt to limit third-party access to information about visitors to our website. We do not, for example, utilize Google or Facebook logins, their advertising services or analytics.

We do utilize some services, scripts and fonts from third parties that add functionality and enhance the appearance of our website. These may provide third parties with some information about your activities on our website. You can take steps with your web browser configuration to limit this kind of third party access to information about your internet activity.

We collect certain information from our visitors for our internal use. These include your IP address, web browser, device information and, if permitted by you, your location. We use this information for troubleshooting purposes, to make sure our infrastructure is serving our visitors and to provide enhanced services to you. Some of this information is made available in anonymous form to users who place listings on this site to provide them with insights into the viewings of their listings.

We do not share identifiable information we collect with third parties as a matter of course, but we reserve the right to do so in response to attempts to disrupt or abuse our service, in which case we may share this information with others of our choosing including, at our discretion, law enforcement agencies. We may also provide information to law enforcement agencies if subpoenaed or if content comes to our attention that we, at our discretion, suspect may be unlawful. We may also transfer information we have collected to any party that may acquire this website.

From time to time, we may deploy third-party services that collect information about our visitors on our behalf in order to provide enhanced services. If you enable push notifications, the information collected by that service is guided by the additional privacy policy here.
