E-Commerce Transactions on the Sites
During your visit to the sites you may elect to engage in a transaction involving the purchase of a product or service such as a subscription, an advertisement or other tangible goods and services. To serve you most efficiently, credit card transactions and order fulfillment may be handled by a third party processing agent, bank or distribution institution. While in most cases transactions are completed without difficulty, there is no such thing as “perfect security” on the Internet or otherwise. If you’re concerned about online credit card safety, in most cases a telephone number will be made available so you can call us and place your order by phone. The sites cannot take responsibility for the success or security of transactions undertaken or processed by third parties. On occasion, a product or service may not be available at the time or the price as it appears in an advertisement. In such event, or in the event a product is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to typographical error, technology error, error in the date or length of publication, or error in pricing or product information received from our advertisers or suppliers, you agree the sites are not responsible for such errors or discrepancies.
Certain Restrictions Relating to Real Estate and Recruiting Advertising
Any real estate advertised on these sites may be subject to the Federal Fair Housing Act, which makes it illegal to advertise any preference, limitations or discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national origin, or intention to make any such preference, limitation or discrimination. State law also may forbid discrimination based on these factors and others. We will not knowingly accept any advertising for real estate which is in violation of the law. All persons are hereby informed that all dwellings advertised are available on an equal opportunity basis. In addition, employers are prohibited from structuring their job advertisement in such a way as to indicate that a group(s) of people would be excluded from consideration for employment on one of the bases enumerated in Section 703 of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (i.e., race, sex, religion, age or national origin). We also follow any and all state laws concerning advertising with respect to hiring.
