All areas of Media Classified Web sites where you are prompted to login (eg.memberships, feeds, etc.) require that you accept cookies. These cookies are used only to keep track of your account information as you move through our system. This ensures that your content and activity are attached to the correct account.

WHAT IS DONE TO PROTECT MY INFORMATION?
Your account is password protected so that only you have access to enter and update your information. You may edit your account and listing information by using your login and password under the signin link. We recommend that you not share your password with anyone. StoryBank.com may ask for your password to make certain account changes on your behalf. This is strictly to confirm that you are the correct holder of the account. Media Classified recognizes the need to allow our users to keep their personal information private and as a result, we use the nick name a user enters upon sign-up to display on screen. If you forget your password, you can indicate such by entering your e-mail address in the login page, and selecting the "I have forgotten my password" link. This will send an e-mail to your e-mail address with your password.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be 100% guaranteed secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Mediaclassified.ca cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
