Information Collection and Use

Information Collection

Dodge Group Communications, Inc. is the sole owner of the information collected on DodgeGroup.com.

Dodge Group Communications, Inc. collects information from our users at several different points on our Web sites.

Log Files

Like most standard Web site servers we use log files and/or other tracking software. This tracking includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Registration

In order to use this Web site to list property or other classified items, a user must first complete the registration form. During registration a user is required to give contact information (such as name and email address). We use this information to contact the user about services on our site for which he has expressed interest.

Third Parties

We use a third-party payment system. We use an outside credit card processing company to bill listers and users for goods and services provided by us on this site. While we believe them to be honorable, we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites.

Information Use

Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. We may use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. For the session ID cookie, once users close the browser, the cookie simply terminates. A persistent cookie is a small text file stored on the user's hard drive for an extended period of time. Persistent cookies can be removed by following Internet browser help file directions.

By setting a cookie on our site, users would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If users reject the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site.

Some of our business partners may use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies, once we have given permission for them to set cookies for advertising.

If you are one of those people who do not wish to accept cookies, you can still use this site. However, if you create an account, you will need to log in each time you visit this site in order to load all your desired settings.

If you are paranoid about cookies, or you are worried that another rogue site could remove them from your machine and obtain your personal data, you should be aware that our cookies are stored encrypted in your cookies file. If some other site managed to actually remove them, they would probably not be able to recover the information since it will appear as gibberish.


Sharing

Legal Disclaimer

Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may be forced to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is totally necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Web site.


Links

This Web site contains links to other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.


Chat Rooms, Message Boards, and Public Forums

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example on message boards, through e-mail, or in chat areas - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, by posting personal information online that is publicly accessible, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.


Tell-A-Friend

If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend's name and email address. We will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site.
