For EU Visitors
In order to provide this classifieds search engine, we need to store the following information:
- Server logs of your device's IP address and the pages it has accessed on our site, for use in security audits and other debugging.
- Database records of your searches, tied to a random user ID. This allows you to re-run past searches, and helps us optimize our service.
- General, anonymized usage statistics via Google Analytics.
- To remember preferences you have set on the site, such as which sources to search for results.
- To save your unique, random user ID, allowing you to view and re-run past searches.
- To know which messages from us you have seen (including this one).
We use Google DFP and Google Adsense to display ads; these are not personalized and do not track or store your data.
On our results page, we display images from the classifieds sites we search: eBay, Amazon, Oodle, and AutoTempest. These sites are therefore also able to see what you have searched for. If you do not wish to search any of these sites, you can disable them in the Preferences menu on the results page. No information will be sent to the disabled source(s).
If you wish to have any of your past pageviews deleted from our search history database or our server logs, please contact us.
