Our Terms of Service

Our goal is to ensure that our service is enjoyable for everyone to use, and with your help we can be successful. We have put together a set standard of terms of use that we believe is fair and reasonable, and will be enforced to ensure the quality and effectiveness of the site as a whole. Use of our site is your consent to our disclaimer and terms of use if for any reason you disagree with our disclaimer or terms of use please do not use our site.

Registration:

Registration on Pinposts is required, and a valid email address must be used. The County and State fields must be appropriately filled out as we use this information for automatic inclusion within your ads. If you need to make changes to your account, or have any questions regarding how to use our site, please use our Contact Us page to email us directly, and we’ll gladly assist you. ATTENTION: Anyone that registers giving false information will have their account removed from our system. Pinposts assumes that all activities made using your username/password on our site are authorized by you, and we are not to be held responsible/liable for any loss or damages you incur on your account. Also, any new account that is left inactive for 30 days will be terminated, as this helps free up space within our database and keep it running efficiently.

Posting Ads:

To post classified ads or auctions, you will need a Membership Package before an ad is allowed to be posted with the exception that you are placing a Free ad that came with your account upon registration. All ads are required to have one picture included. No image pictures from other sites are allowed. No email addresses or phone numbers are allowed within an ad listing. Links for videos and websites are allowed, though we do reserve the right to remove any video or website link we deem as inappropriate. If you have any questions or need help in regards to placing ads, please contact us, and we’ll be happy assist you.

ATTENTION: Choosing a quality title for your ad will do better than those that are not well put together. What do we mean by this? When you submit an ad to us it doesn’t just get placed on our website. We optimize ads for greater exposure on your behalf so they have the potential of being seen by thousands of people on the internet via search engines, and/or through social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook by providing a Share option for ad postings. So, to take advantage of this you will want to be as descriptive as possible in the title area of your ad, and it’s also an effective way to catch a person’s attention when they are browsing through our classified ads for something in particular. See examples below:

Good Title: Purebred AKC German Shepherd Puppies for Sale

Not so good title: German Shepherd puppies for Sale

Good Title: 2007 Ford Taurus in Excellent Condition

Not so good title: Ford in Excellent Condition
