Registering for this forum and adding your advert in and of itself will NOT expose you to spam and/or contact by third parties not from this site or registered with it as a potential roommate.
Your email address is required to register, but only used for email from the system. It's not provided by US to any other members (they have to use the messaging system to contact you, and that doesn't display your email address), and it's also not accessible to search engines and bots.
We will NOT send you anything other than the email required for your voluntary participation here except what YOU choose. Nor will we ever sell or share your email address with anyone else except if required by a court of law. No one. Else. Ever. We promise.
Yes, that means we won't sell or share your email address with any other site, third party, organization, mailing list, company, nothing and nobody whatsoever. No "trusted partners," nobody at all. Email addresses shared with the site stay right here.
Obviously, if you get to know another member and want to provide them with your email address and/or any other contact info, YOU certainly can. And then obviously, others can see the content of any advert you placed (but that would be the point, right?).
But when and if you share your email address with anyone else and exactly what you share in your advert(s) is entirely up to you.
Once advert(s) are deleted, they will no longer be published or accessible anyplace on our site. We will not retain information from those adverts for any future use.
