We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained.
Members must enter an email address to register an account, which allows them to join the community, ask questions directly on listings, and place orders. Personal information collected and stored in a member account may include First Name, Last Name, E-mail, Telephone, Fax, and one or more Addresses. This information may be included in the order details for both the selling member and buying member when an order is placed on the website for a Buy Now" listing. Order details are immediately emailed to both the buying member and selling member at the time the order is placed. They are also shared in the Order history and Sales history of the buying member and selling member, respectively.
Members may choose to activate a Member Profile page to create and post listings. Information collected and stored in a member account for this may include a Profile Image, Profile Name / Title, Profile Description, PayPal Account E-mail Address, Location (includes Country, State / Region, and City / Location), and Social links (may include personal Website url, Facebook page, Twitter page, Pinterest page, Google+ page). This information is displayed publicly on the Member Profile Page and for each member on the website. Member profiles may be listed in the Member Index.
Features exist on the website to facilitate contact between members and may generate automatic email notifications. The personal email address on account for each member is NOT exposed nor shared with the other members during these activities, unless otherwise explicitly stated.
Anyone may email a member directly through the website by using the Member Contact form. The sender must supply an email address, but the email address of the recipient member is NOT shared. An email with the submitted message will be sent from SurfersList to the recipient member and to the sending member. The recipient member may choose to reply by using the Member Contact form; directly to the email address provided by the sender; or not at all.
Members may ask questions about a listing to other members directly through the website without sharing their personal email address by using the the Question and Answers tab available on every listing. Members must log in to submit a listing Q/A. The name displayed next to each question and answer will be the member Profile Name / Title for members who have activated a member profile; or the member account First Name and Last Name otherwise. Q & A's submitted by members without a profile require approval by SurfersList before they appear on the website. Q & A's submitted by members with a profile will be automatically approved. Approved questions and answers appear on the listing page. An email will be sent from SurfersList to the listing member and to the asking member. The listing member should reply similarly by using the Q & A form on the listing page. The personal email address of both members will NOT be exposed nor shared during this process.
Members may rate and review other member profiles. To submit a review, members must have activated a member profile and be logged in to their account. In so doing, an email notification will be sent from SurfersList to the submitting member and the reviewed member. The personal email address of both members will NOT be exposed nor shared during this process.
Anyone may flag a listing to alert SurfersList of inappropriate content. In so doing, an email notification will be sent from SurfersList to the listing member. If the listing is flagged by another member while logged in to their acccount, then the flagging member will receive the email notification, as well. The personal email address of members will NOT be exposed nor shared during this process.
