Introduction
This privacy policy describes how we handle your personal information. We collect, use, and share personal information to help the ADLOT work and to keep it safe. In formal terms, ADLOT, acting itself and through its subsidiaries, is the 'data controller' of your personal information.

Collection
Information posted on ADLOT is obviously publicly available. Our servers are located in Singapore, Hong Kong, India and the United States. The laws on holding personal data in the United States may be less stringent than the laws applicable to Singapore, Hong Kong and India, but ADLOT will hold and transmit your information in a safe, confidential and secure environment. If you choose to provide us with personal information, you are consenting to the transfer and storage of that information on our servers in Singapore, Hong Kong, India and the United States. We collect and store the following personal information:

  • email address, physical contact information, and (depending on the service used) sometimes financial information;
  • computer sign-on data, statistics on page views, traffic to and from ADLOT and ad data (all through cookies you can take steps to disable the cookies on your browser although this is likely to affect your ability to use the site);
  • other information, including users IP address and standard web log information.

Use
We use users' personal information to:

  • provide our services;
  • resolve disputes and troubleshoot problems;
  • encourage safe trading and enforce our policies;
  • customize users' experience, measure interest in our services, and inform users about services and updates;
  • communicate marketing and promotional offers to you;
  • do other things for users as described when we collect the information.

Disclosure
We do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your explicit consent. We may disclose personal information to respond to legal requirements, enforce our policies, respond to claims that a posting or other content violates others right 's, or protect anyone 's rights, property, or safety (for example, if you submit false contact details or impersonate another person, we may pass your personal information to any aggrieved third party, their agent or to any law enforcement agency).

Cookies
We or our service providers may place "cookies" (a "cookie" is a small files placed on the hard drive of your computer) and 'web beacons' (a 'web beacon' is an electronic image, called a single-pixel or clear GIF placed in the web page code) on your computer when you visit portions of ADLOT. Most cookies are "session cookies," meaning that they are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of a session, for example, when you close your browser. We may use permanent or session cookies to help analyse our web page flow; customise our services, content and advertising; measure promotional effectiveness, and promote trust and safety. You can block our cookies by changing the settings on your browser.

You may encounter cookies from third parties on certain pages of the site that we do not control. We use third-party ad-serving technologies, to serve ads, and they may place cookies on your computer. We do not allow these third parties to collect any personal information through the use of cookies in ads.

Using Information from ADLOT
You may use personal information gathered from ADLOT only to follow up with another user about a specific posting, not to send spam or collect personal information from someone who hasn't agreed to that.

Communications and email tools
You agree to receive marketing communications from us unless you tell us that you prefer not to receive such communications. If you don't wish to receive marketing communications from us, simply indicate your preference by following the directions provided with the communication.

You may not use our site or communication tools to harvest addresses, send spam or otherwise breach our Terms of Service or Privacy Policy. We may automatically scan and manually filter messages sent via our communication tools for malicious activity or prohibited content, but we do not permanently store such messages. If you use our tools to send content to a friend, we do not permanently store your friends addresses or use or disclose them for marketing purposes. To report spam from other users, please contact us.

Access, Modification, and Deletion
You can see, modify or erase your personal information by reviewing your posting or account status page. Contact us to review any personal information we store that is not available on ADLOT. There may be a charge associated with such requests but these will not exceed the amounts permitted by law. We delete personal information when we no longer need it for the purposes we described earlier. We retain personal information as permitted by law to resolve disputes, enforce our policies; and prevent bad guys from coming back.

Security
We use many tools to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure, but as you probably know, nothing's perfect, so we make no guarantees.

General
Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will not reduce your rights under this Privacy Policy without your explicit consent. We will post any privacy policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice (including, for certain services, email notification of privacy policy changes). We will also keep prior versions of this Privacy Policy in an archive for your review.
