Refund Policy: Classified Ads

Missoula Independent reserves the right to categorize, edit and refuse classified ads. Errors in classified ads must be reported to Missoula Independent Classifed Department by Monday, 5:00 p.m. of the week prior to publication. Missoula Independent does not issue refunds for classified advertising and we will not be responsible for errors or failure to run an ad except to the extent of the cost of the first insertion of the ad.

Privacy Policy: Personally Identifiable Information

We do track how our visitors use this site so that we can see what people like and don’t like. We also analyze and aggregate information about use patterns and share the aggregated data with our advertisers (for example, we keep track of how many users see and click on particular advertisements). We may also collect personal information about you via registration for contests, surveys and newsletters. We will not, however, release your name, e-mail address or any other personal information to anyone else outside Missoula Independent unless we have your consent, we are under a legal order to do so, or there is an emergency involving personal danger. This means that we will not provide our advertisers or anyone else outside Missoula Independent with any information specific to you unless we have your consent. The only Missoula Independent employees or consultants allowed access to personal information about you are those who need to have access. Any employee or consultant who violates our privacy and security policies is subject to disciplinary action, including possible termination or prosecution.

Privacy Policy: Cookies

Cookies are small text files that allow Web sites to store and retrieve information about you from your computer system. Missoula Independent does serve cookies to track individual site usage for later aggregation, and also to manage browser compatibility. But we do not use cookies in order to retrieve any information from your computer other than information originally sent in a Missoula Independent cookie, such as a user code. We have no control over whether and how our advertisers use cookies that originate from their web site.

Privacy Policy: Children

Missoula Independent does not orient this site toward children or target them as an audience, nor does it screen them from using the site. Some of the material on this site is for mature audiences, and parents and guardians should take responsibility for monitoring their children’s use. Missoula Independent does not collect or distribute information indicating whether a user is a child.

Privacy Policy: Links to Other Sites

This site provides links and pointers to Web sites maintained by other organizations. Missoula Independent provides these links as a convenience to users, but it does not operate, control or endorse such sites. Missoula Independent also disclaims any responsibility for the information on those sites and any products or services offered there, and cannot vouch for the privacy policies of such sites. Missoula Independent does not make any warranties or representations that any linked sites (or even this site) will function without error or interruption, that defects will be corrected, or that the sites and their servers are free of viruses and other problems that can harm your computer.

Privacy Policy: Policy Changes

This privacy policy is effective as of January 1, 2001. We may need to change it from time to time as technology and the nature of the Web keep evolving. We will post any changes to this policy as soon as they go into effect.
