A Special Note On Children's Privacy:
DispatchClassifieds.com is a general audience website and is not directed at children. Under the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, no website operator can require as a condition of participating in an activity that a child under the age of 13 disclose more information than is reasonably necessary. DispatchClassifieds.com abides by this requirement.
DispatchClassifieds.com requires users to register and give us personally identifiable information -- name, address, email address -- in order to gain access to the site. Should a child under the age of 13 wish to register, we require that registration be completed by the child's parent or legal guardian under the section "DispatchClassifieds.com Family Accounts." In the event that a parent or legal guardian registers a child under the age of 13 through an DispatchClassifieds.com Family Accounts, we will require the email address of the child's parent or legal guardian, in order to ensure parental consent is obtained. We never share children's personal information with third parties, except to the extent those third parties are involved in the maintenance of the online service and have agreed to maintain the confidentiality of any collected information.
On the website, we automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information such as the type of computer operating system (e.g., Windows XP or Mac OS) and browser (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer) being used, in the domain name of the Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, EarthLink).
As stated above, DispatchClassifieds.com will make reasonable efforts to obtain parental consent for any registered users under the age of 13. Ways in which DispatchClassifieds.com may attempt to obtain parental consent include but are not limited to providing a consent form to be signed by the parent; by requiring a parent to use a credit card in connection with a transaction; having a parent call a toll-free telephone number staffed by trained personnel; using a digital certificate that uses public key technology; by using email accompanied by a pin or password; and by sending a confirmatory email, making a confirmation telephone call or sending a confirming letter to the parent following receipt of an emailed parental consent.
DispatchClassifieds.com may sometimes use the non-personally identifiable information collected to improve the design and content of our site and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience. DispatchClassifieds.com also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze site usage, as well as offer products, programs, or services.
DispatchClassifieds.com will disclose personally identifiable information to third parties only in response to legal process or when DispatchClassifieds.com believes in good faith that the law requires it, for example, in response to a court order, subpoena or law enforcement agency's request.
DispatchClassifieds.com has set up a system by which parents can review the limited and identifiable information collected about their child online, have this information deleted, and/or request that there be no further collection or use of their child's information. To use this system, simply send an email to ChildPrivacy@DispatchClassifieds.com and make sure to provide the email address of your child, as well as your email address, home address, and telephone number.
Our systems include appropriate safeguards to secure the very limited personal identifiable information we receive from children for the very limited time it is in our possession.
