Privacy Policy

Data we collect from you and store

We collect an advert that you supply to us and in that form you submit your email address and your first name and an informal name. You also submit a description of your property and optional pictures. This data is stored securely on our server in London Docklands.

After four days we will email you a reminder to renew your ad or remove it. We do this in order to keep the site's contents up to date. This maintains the reputation of the site and benefits all users. If you have not renewed the ad after eight days the ad will cease to be transmitted but will not be deleted and we will not email you again. By placing an ad on our site you consent to receiving these reminder emails.

Your email address is not used for any emailing lists, either during the active period of your ad nor afterwards. Please note that if you supply us with images of your property we may use those pictures elsewhere in the site outside the domain of your ad. We will not share images with any third parties however and and all images will cease to be displayed anywhere on the site after your ad has been taken down by you.

After your advert has ceased to be displayed your ad copy is retained for a definite period in order that you may return and re-use the ad at a later date (as many users do). If you have not returned within a prescribed period then this data is deleted.

You may delete your data at any time by clicking on the delete link on your data form. You can access that form by using the PIN we have provided and you may request your PIN be resent. In any other event you can contact us at and request your data be deleted. Please note that after deletion nothing is retrievable either from our data base or backups.

Third parties

We do not share your submitted data with third parties.


Like most websites we monitor traffic to our site through the use of a third party service provided by Google. This helps us identify how many people are accessing via mobile device or PC for example so that we may direct our development efforts accordingly. This tracking does not identify you as an individual nor link the tracking to your personal and submitted data. The only other efforts we make with regards to tracking are anti-fraud measures in order to identify users (usually from overseas) who are attempting to defraud users by posting bogus adverts for properties that do not exist. It is important that we implement measures to prevent such practices.
