Registration: If you subscribe to the Basic Edition of our services, we will collect your name, address and email address. If you remain a member after the free trial period, we will collect your billing information as well.
Surveys: We may from time to time provide a survey for our subscribers, where we will ask you to provide us with demographic information (such as income level and gender). We encourage you to submit such information so we can provide you with a more personalized experience on our Site, but your participation is entirely voluntary.
Third-Party Links: If you use a third-party link, and when leaving our Site, we encourage you to read the privacy statements of each and every other website that you visit thereafter and that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies only to information collected by our Site.
USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Third-Party Offers: We share personally identifiable information with other third parties and will sometimes use your information to send you information about third-party offers. We will only use your information to further the business conducted on this Site.
Listings: Information you provide as a listing will be come public, and your personal information will be posted along with a listing, unless you choose to post a listing anonymously, in which case we will forward contacts to your mailbox on the Site. When posting a listing, users are given the option of releasing their contact information to other users who have activated searches that match these criteria. This contact information is then shared with the users who have business listings that match their search criteria. Any information that you post is public information, and we cannot control what uses third parties may make of personal information you share in such a public forum. In addition, users searching the Site can view contact information (name, e-mail and phone number) when they view a listing profile. Users can save their search criteria, so that information about properties that match the specified criteria are placed in their mailbox or emailed to them. Search criteria and activities remain private to the individual user. When a user uploads photos, the user also allows WMA to use such photos for other online portals, for print media and advertisements.
Search Agents: If you create a search agent, for automatically searching for listings matching your criteria, then we may use your e-mail address to send you search agent notifications. If you do not wish to receive these notifications, you can make your preference known. Please see the "Choice and opt-out" section of this Policy.
Recommended listings: If you choose to have us notify you about recommended listings, we may use your e-mail address to send you the listing notifications. If you do not wish to receive these notifications, you can make your preference known. Please see the "Choice and opt-out" section of this Policy.
Unread mail: We provide an internal messaging system that enables our subscribers to communicate with each other and with our customer service representatives. If you elect to have us notify you about unread messages in your inbox, we may use your e-mail address to send you these notifications. If you do not wish to receive these notifications, you can make your preference known. Please see the "Choice and opt-out" section of this Policy.
Other uses. We may use your personal information to contact you about those services on our Site in which you have expressed an interest, for example if you have contacted our customer service or support department, or if you have made an inquiry.

We may send you an e-mail message, for instance if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, or the delivery of a service or product is delayed, or if there is a service issue with something you may have ordered.
