Privacy Policy

BottleSpot has established this privacy policy to explain how your information is protected, collected and used. This policy may be updated or otherwise modified, so please always check for the latest version.

Protecting your privacy

BottleSpot has a strict no spam policy. We may occasionally email useful information to our users, but we are very careful not to abuse that privilege, and users can opt out at any time.

BottleSpot does share your information with third parties for any purpose, except as required by law.

We offer relay email service to reduce 3rd party harvesting and spam. Your email is not made public.

Data we collect

We sometimes collect your email address, for purposes such as sending self-publishing and confirmation emails, authenticating user accounts, providing subscription email services, registering for forums. This data is never shared with outside sources or third parties, except as as required by law.

We may collect personal information if you provide it in feedback, comments, post it on our classifieds or interactive forums, or if you contact us directly. Please do not post any personal information on BottleSpot that you expect to keep private.

Our web logs collect standard web log entries for each page served, including your IP address, page URL, browser information, and timestamp. This information is used to diagnose problems, to administer the site, and otherwise provide service to you.

Data we store

All classified and forum postings are stored in our database, even after "de-activation," and may be archived elsewhere.

Our web logs and other records may be stored indefinitely.

Although we make good faith efforts to store the information in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public, we cannot guarantee complete security.

3rd party data access

Search engines and other sites not affiliated with BottleSpot may not archive or otherwise make available BottleSpot listings without explicit permission.

Circumstances in which BottleSpot may release information

BottleSpot may disclose information about its users in response to court order, subpoena, warrant or if otherwise required to do so by law.

BottleSpot may also disclose information about its users to law enforcement officers or others, in the good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to: enforce our Terms of Use; respond to claims that any listing or other content violates the rights of third-parties; or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of BottleSpot, its users or the general public.
