Cookies

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, that is sent to your browser from a web site's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive. You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. If you reject all cookies, you will not be able to use SimplyListed products or services that require you to “sign in,” and you may not be able to take full advantage of the SimplyListed service.

Tracking Technologies

We employ a software technology called Clear Gifs/Web Beacons, that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages. The use of cookies by our third party tracking partners is not covered by our privacy statement. We do not have access or control over these cookies. Our partners use session ID cookies to support our site functionality such as web analytics reporting.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

When you post a message or item for sale, your first name and last initial, username or alias is visible to other users. If you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. SimplyListed may be required to disclose personally identifiable information under special circumstances, such as to comply with subpoenas or when your actions violate the SimplyListed Terms of Service. SimplyListed may disclose personally identifiable information to third parties if it believes it is necessary or appropriate in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement, piracy, or other unlawful activity. In such events, SimplyListed may disclose name, street address, city, state, zip code, country, phone number, email address and company name. SimplyListed may share aggregated demographic information with business partners.

SimplyListed will not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with nonaffiliated parties except as specified in this Privacy Policy to provide products or services you have requested or when SimplyListed has your permission. It may be necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of SimplyListed's Terms of Service, as specified in this Privacy Policy or as otherwise required by law. In some cases, SimplyListed may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. SimplyListed will transfer information about you if SimplyListed is acquired by or merged with another company. In this event, SimplyListed will notify you by email or by putting a prominent notice on the SimplyListed web site before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

When buying or selling items on SimplyListed, you may obtain another user's email address, shipping address and/or other information. Pursuant to SimplyListed's Terms of Service, you may only use this information in connection with and for the duration of the transaction in which you are engaged with the other user. This information should only be used for SimplyListed-related communications or for SimplyListed-facilitated transactions. SimplyListed has not granted you a license to use the information for unsolicited commercial messages. Without limiting the foregoing, without express consent from the user, you are not licensed to add any SimplyListed user to your email or physical mail list.

Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy and SimplyListed's ability to keep the community free from bad actors, SimplyListed will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement, other government officials, or other third parties without a subpoena, court order, legal process, or substantially similar legal procedure, except when SimplyListed believes in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to protect SimplyListed's rights, prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss, or to report suspected illegal activity.

Third Parties

Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information SimplyListed collects from you. If you disclose your information to others, whether they are buyers or sellers on SimplyListed or throughout the Internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them.
