How do I ensure that my confidentiality is protected?

Your details will remain with us and will not be transferred to any third party or posted on the site. You log on to the site using your email address and a password, which will be assigned automatically to you on registration. You can change this password once you login in “My Account” When submitting an advert, you can be as anonymous as you feel is appropriate. We have deliberately allowed advertisers to choose quite a wide geographical area when submitting an ad so that they can protect their anonymity.

How do I pay for adverts?

Once you have submitted the details of your advert, you can pay securely via credit or laser card and your Advert will be put Live on the site immediately. You will receive a invoice in the post to the address you submitted with your credit card. If you are placing multiple ads, you can view a statement of account by coming to the Members Zone and clicking on the button accompanying "To view your bill".

How do I edit or renew an advert?

In "My Account" you select "Edit/Renew your existing Adverts" and it will guide you through the process.

I have placed an advert and my credit card has been debited but I have changed my mind. What do I do? If you contact us within 24 hours of having placed the advert, we will remove the advert and credit your credit card account. Regrettably, if you contact us after that period of time, we cannot refund the advertising cost.

I have forgotten my login details. What do I do?

Go to "My Account" and Select "Lost your Password? click here." Enter your email address and you will receive an email with your existing Username and a new password.

How do you protect the privacy of the information I submit to you?
