We accept neither responsibility for keeping the information in these pages up to date nor liability for any failure to do so.

Freeads Classifieds has partnerships with other third party websites that we share information with for the purpose of giving users a better chance to sell their items. We process such information in accordance with this Policy. Any information that is passed from Freeads to its partners is done so in the strictest confidence. By submitting an advert online the user is agreeing that their personal information may be shared with Freeads Classifieds' partners. The user also agrees to receive marketing communications from Freeads Classifieds unless they tell us they wish not to receive these communications.

By submitting an advert online, the user is requesting that their advert appears on the Freeads website. This means that the advert, including personal details such as telephone number, email address and company details (where applicable), can potentially be viewed by all persons with Internet access. The user consents to the publication of their data in this way. The user can cancel the advert for any reason at any time by logging into their account.

By submitting an advert either online or directly from a mobile phone, the user is agreeing to receive SMS alert messages notifying them of responses to their advert, as well as promotions and events related to their advertisement. The user will not be charged for receiving these messages. To stop receiving SMS alerts, the user will text STOP to 66121. All STOP messages are charged at the user's normal network rate.

By submitting an advert to the Freeads "Jobs" category the user is agreeing to pay a fee to advertise in that category. By submitting an advert to the above named category the user is agreeing that the fee required to do so is subject to change by Freeads at any time without notice.

Once an advert has been submitted Freeads will endeavour to put the advert live as soon as possible, but we reserve the right to refuse or delete adverts we believe are inappropriate. Freeads is not able to verify the truthfulness of any statements made by the user in the advert copy. Accordingly, the user shall be responsible for any losses, expenses or other costs incurred by Freeads that are caused by an untrue statement deliberately made or provided by the user.

The user will have the option to upgrade the advert that they have submitted to Freeads from the standard free advert to another one that Freeads promotes. These may be different in design, colour or position on the website and may run for a different duration, unless the user has withdrawn the advert from sale or marked it as sold. In the event that an advert upgrade is purchased and then withdrawn before the purchased duration has finished then the user agrees that, even if they subsequently decide to put the advert live again, refunds for any unused time may be occasionally offered at the discretion of the management.

Trade adverts may also be posted for free, but users are required to select the Trade option within their account.

By phoning any and all of the private numbers listed in adverts, users are agreeing to pay a per minute fee in full, whether or not the line connects or is picked up by the other party. For further information on Private Response Numbers, including the current cost per minute, click here.

All users are advised to check advert details carefully before entering into any agreements of any kind. If in doubt, please seek legal advice.

It is technically impossible to provide a website free of faults and Freeads do not claim to do so. No guarantee is made that the user's advert will be provided continuously free of faults. In addition, maintenance on the website will be carried out from time to time, but in doing so we shall attempt to keep the disruption to a minimum.

Freeads may at any time vary the technical specifications of its website (or any part of it) for any reason.

Freeads may at any time remove any or all of the materials from users' adverts which in Freeads' opinion are unlawful or have been posted in breach of this agreement.

The user shall report to Freeads any suspected errors with the advertisement as soon as they come to the user's attention.

Freeads reserves the right to refuse to publish any advertisement without ascertaining any reason, and to classify, edit and delete at its sole discretion. The placing of any advert is an acceptance of these conditions.
