What personally identifiable information is collected from you

We collect information in several ways from different parts of our web site.

Some personal information is gathered when you register to use various options. During registration, we ask for your name and email address. The system will also occasionally ask for your street address, city, state/province, zip/postal code, country, telephone number, and the URL of your web site. This information is used solely to assist you in navigating the system by automatically filling in certain forms (such as the ad posting form) with your information so that you don't have to continually re-enter it. Once you register for a free service you are no longer anonymous to ShopBayside.com - you are able to take full advantage of the many offerings we have.
