Privacy Statement

SmallBizAds is committed to protecting the privacy of your personal information.

This Privacy Policy outlines the types of personal information we gather when you use SmallBizAds’ services, as well as some of the steps we take to safeguard it.

The following principles apply to the personally identifying information we ask for and that you may provide in some circumstances. “Personally identifying information” is information that individually identifies you, such as your name, physical address, phone number or email address, and that is not otherwise publicly available.

This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that SmallBizAds or CyFocus, does not own or control, or to people that they do not employ or manage.

Collection of you Personal Information:

SmallBizAds also collects certain information about your computer hardware and software. This information may include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by SmallBizAds for the operation of its sites and services, to maintain quality of the services, and to provide general statistics regarding use of SmallBizAds sites and services.

Some of our services require you to register. SmallBizAds asks you for some personal information in order to create an account or file for you (typically your name, email address and a password for your account) and we will use that information to provide the service. For certain services, such as our advertising programs, we may request credit card or other payment information which we will maintain in encrypted form on secure servers.

Use Of Cookies:

Upon your first visit to SmallBizAds, a cookie is sent to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. A “cookie” is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer when you visit a website.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same SmallBizAds Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you will not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the SmallBizAds Web site or other Web sites you visit.
