hard drive. These are important for our site to function. Third
parties may be placing and reading cookies on our users' browser,
or using web beacons to collect information, in the course of ads
being served on this web site.
We also use third party advertisements on canadarentals.net to
support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such
as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which
will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google
AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP
, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether
you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting
purposes (showing Edmonton real estate ads to someone in Edmonton,
for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited
(such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
You can generally make your browser accept or not accept cookies
by going to Tools>>Options and then into your Privacy tab
in Firefox, or Tools>>Internet Options in Internet Explorer.
Other browsers should have a similar feature.
You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or
third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences
in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can
affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other
websites. This could include the inability to login to services
or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of
any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow
cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements,
a new cookie will be added.
|DoubleClick DART cookies
We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s
DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing
the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including
some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve
ads specific to you and your interests (”interest based targeting”).
The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history
(For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Edmonton,
you may see Edmonton hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related
site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses “non personally
identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information
about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone
number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card
numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this
advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx

or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet
Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages
you visited throughout our site.

these issues. Obviously, being a public bulletin board, we are open
to abuse from time to time. If you suspect a fraudulent ad on our
site, or if you believe that your personal information has been posted
or used without your consent, please contact us and we will take the
appropriate action immediately.
- We make it very clear in many places on our web site that Canadarentals.net
cannot and will not be held liable for any posting on this web site.
Just as a public bulletin board at your local coffee shop cannot be
held liable for an objectionable message posted on it, we too cannot
be held liable for what a third party posts on our web site. We will,
however, take all appropriate measures to minimize abuse, spam, fraud
or discrimination. Any postings that have been brought to our attention,
and that are deemed to be abusive, spammy, fraudulent, or discriminatory
in any way will be removed from Canadarentals.net
