What does "For Sale By Owner" mean?
When listing your ad at
Canada4SaleByOwner.com you are asserting that you legally, and rightfully own
the item you are selling. This means:
- you are not an agent, and
that the item is not on consignment, and that the item does not belong to
anyone else but you.
- the item is not stolen or
swindled or obtained through any other dubious means other than legally.
Though we monitor all
advertisements posted on Canada4SaleByOwner.com, we can not guarantee that every
ad posted on our site is legitimate and/or valid.
Well, as far as entering your email address is concerned, this is pretty much
the only time you'll be asked to enter it. If you want, you can post it in your
advertisement, or you can post a different one. We ask for an email address at
registration as a means of identifying you, mainly because an email address is
fairly unique, but also to spare you of having to think up an alias. But if you
prefer, register with an alias. Whatever you feel comfortable with. This 'user
identification' pretty much stays locked up in our database (for what that's
worth- see below) and is only asked for when you log-in to the site. So if you
don't register with an email address as your user-id, don't expect any kind of
email from us in the future.
Rest assured that we
haven't the time or inclination to dabble in third-party marketing schemes
(even we've been subjected to our fair share of spam- personally we hate
all forms of the stuff- so we know what it's like and we steadfastly refuse to take any
part in it.)
We do actively track your ip
address(es) on some pages to provide marketing reports and other counter
statistics. We don't use or require session cookies in any of our
programming on any page. Our web server might send you a session cookie for it
own purpose or reason (we don't control this) - at any rate you are
certainly welcome to disallow all cookies from our site. Your
browsing experience should not be affected since we neither use or rely on them.
What we mean by 'locked-up/secure'
It's no secret that data theft exists and that even the heartiest of
security systems can be cracked. This website makes no claims whatsoever that
what data you place here will be held ultimately secure. In most cases, a few
layers of user-id/password protection are all that's in place, which is normally
sufficient for a system like this and the data that's stored here. Even when
encrypted, these layers can be cracked by a variety of tools. So we stress,
please, 'locked-up' is a relative term.
With this in mind,
please note that we don't require any information from you which may
compromise your safety and privacy.
ANSWER ONLY THE
QUESTIONS YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE ANSWERING.
If you don't want
strangers calling you in the middle of the night to inquire about your
advertisement- don't post your phone number (or, at least, give
instructions on the best times that you can be reached.) Please remember,
though this site is built for Canadians, this is the internet, and the
whole world may be watching.
