Anyone can search without sharing any personal information about him/herself.

While we may track IP addresses (the Internet address of a computer) during a user's session, the actual user remains anonymous. Tracking IP addresses helps us monitor which parts of our site users are visiting and the amount of time they spend there. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. That is, while we may track a user's session, the user him/herself is still anonymous. The user's browser may also tell us the type of computer and operating system that is being used.

If, however, you choose to place a classified ad or sign up for a service or mailing list offered through, or sign onto a page that requires authorization, you'll be prompted to provide your name, e-mail address, and possibly other personal information.

Some web pages utilize small files (called "cookies") which return personal information placed on your hard disk for record-keeping purposes. A cookie allows our site to recognize you when you return, minimizing the amount of information you need to provide when using our services in the future.
