When placing a listing, classified ad, event etc., online or other free service viewable by the public there is nothing to stop malicious individuals and “spammers” from using the information in your ad(s) in a manner that you may not agree with and we suggest that if you need to display contact details you use a business or work telephone number and a web based online email address like Yahoo or Gmail. Please note that we do not advise using HOTMAIL email addresses as they fail to deliver emails on a regular basis and communications are often returned to us.

What Data Breach Systems Are In Place
Notifications are sent to the administrator whenever someone uses an administration login or attempts to recover a password (the password is NOT divulged). This enables the administrator to monitor the site, temporarily disable registrations and block abusers IP addresses. The server on which the site is hosted sends notifications to the server technician when a Denial of Service (DOS) or other concerted attack is attempted so that the technician may temporarily disable the site or enable further security measures. We also use a third party plugin that monitors the site and login attempts and uses algorithms to identify and prevent hacking attacks and other potential abuse.
