Professional listing members will also be asked for their business name and full contact details which are obligatory fields and will be listed publicly on your profile page.
If you correspond with us by e-mail, we may retain the content of your e-mail messages, your e-mail address and our responses. We may also retain any messages you send through the Service.
Cookies Information: When you visit the Service, we may send one or more cookies - a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters - to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser and lets Homeadverts help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the site. Cookie(s) may also convey information about how you browse the Service to us. A cookie does not collect personal information about you. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed according to directions from your web browser. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However please note, some features of the Service may not function in their entirety if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.
Log File Information: Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you access a web page. When you use the Service, our servers automatically record certain log file information such as your web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, referring/exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information.
Clear Gifs Information: When you use the Service, we may employ clear gifs (also known as web beacons) which are used to track the online usage patterns of our users anonymously. In addition, we may also use clear gifs in HTML-based e-mails sent to our users to track which e-mails are opened by recipients. The information is used to enable more accurate reporting, improve the effectiveness of our marketing, and make Homeadverts better for our users.

We use personal information as submitted by you to operate, maintain and provide you with the features and functionality of the Service.
By providing us with your e-mail address you consent to our using the e-mail address to send you Service related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. You also agree that we may send you notifications of activity on the Service , in accordance with any applicable privacy settings. We may use your e-mail address to send you other messages, such as newsmails, changes and amendments to the Service, or special offers. If you do not want to receive such e-mail messages, you may change your preferences in your account settings page. You may not opt out of Service related e-mails.
Following termination or deactivation of your Homeadverts account, we may retain your profile information and User Content for a commercially reasonable time for backup, archival, or audit purposes.

We may use certain information about you and/or your User Content internally for purposes such as analysing how the Service is used, diagnosing service or technical problems, maintaining security, and personalising content.
How We Share Your Information
As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, e-mail, and visitor information is one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions. We may also transfer or assign such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or dissolution.
Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the Service, becomes available to the public, as controlled by any applicable and individual account privacy settings. To change your privacy settings on the Service, visit your account settings page. If you remove information that you posted to the Service, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Service, or if other Users have copied or saved that information.
From time to time, we may run contests, special offers, or other events or activities ("Events") on the Service together with a third party partner. If you provide information to such third parties, you give them permission to use it for the purpose of that Event and any other use that you approve. We cannot control third parties' use of your information. If you do not want your information to be collected by or shared with a third party, you can choose not to participate in these Events.

How We Protect Your Information
We care about the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Homeadverts or guarantee that your information on the Service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. Your privacy settings may also be affected by changes to the functionality of Homeadverts distributors, such as social networks. We are not responsible for the functionality or security measures of any third party.
To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to your e-mail communications from Homeadverts, at all times.
Compromise of Personal Information
In the event that personal information is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will promptly notify those persons whose personal information has been compromised.
Your Choices About Your Information
You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through the Service, in which case Homeadverts may not be able to provide certain services to you. You may update or correct your account information and e-mail preferences at any time by logging in to your account settings page.
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, we do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register as Members. If you are under 13, please do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. No one under age 13 is allowed to provide any personal information to or on Homeadverts. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
