How To Fix Your Browsers Cookie Settings

Microsoft Internet Explorer Browsers

Netscape Browsers

Macintosh Users

Cookie Faq

Your browser MUST be set to accept our "Session Cookie" in order to use the interactive features of our sites (like placing an advertisement of your property, or logging in to change it or to view your traffic statistics, or logging in to edit your request for our new listing notification services, or viewing multiple page search results) since it is not possible to accomplish those functions without the use of a Session Cookie.

Changing Microsoft Internet Explorer Browser Cookie Settings:

If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer browser Version 6x you need to have the privacy setting on either the Default setting of "Medium" or the "Medium High" or the "High" privacy setting so your browser will accept our Session Cookies.  If you select the "Block All Cookies" option you will NOT be able to use our interactive features.

Users of Internet Explorer Version 6x can change their privacy preferences using a slider on the Privacy tab in Internet Options (with a browser window open, at the top menu list click on "Tools" then click "Internet Options" to see the options screen displayed below). The slider has six levels: Block All Cookies, High, Medium High, Medium (this is the default level), Low, and Accept All Cookies. If you select the "Custom" options instead of the automatic privacy settings, just be sure you check off that it is OK to accept "Session Cookies".

Changing Cookie Settings

Microsoft Internet Explorer Browsers (Version 5x) sets the Cookie Settings based on the "Security" level you selected under the SECURITY Tab (it does not have a separate PRIVACY Tab as shown above).  In those versions you need to select the Medium SECURITY level for the "internet zone" similar to how you select the Medium PRIVACY level in the example above in order for your Browser to accept our Session Cookies.

Users of Microsoft Internet Explorer Browsers (Version 3x and 4x) need to Click "View" instead of "Tools" and then click Internet Options to get to the properties screen then you see the cookie options under the ADVANCED tab as check off box options in the Security group of options you will see there.

Changing Netscape Browser Cookie Settings:

Users of newer versions of Netscape Browsers (6x and 7x) start with a browser window open, at the top menu list click on "Edit", then click on "Preferences", then open the "Privacy & Security" menu, then select the "Cookies" option, then choose "Warn me before accepting a cookie" so you can either approve accepting it or reject it each time then click the "OK" button to save the changes that you made.

Users of Netscape Browsers (versions 4x) start with a browser window open, at the top menu list click on "Edit" then click "Preferences" then click on the "Advanced" option item to get to the cookie options menu, then choose "Warn me before accepting a cookie" so you can either approve accepting it or reject it each time.  If you select "Disable Cookies" you will NOT be able to use the interactive features of our site.

Information about cookies and how we use them:

A Session Cookie is a small text file the web server sends to your computer which essentially identifies your computer and what you are doing so the web server can allow you accomplish those interactive functions (like allowing you to edit your ad but not someone else's ad).  Think about it as an ID card.  The cookie itself does NOT collect any information from your computer, it simply stores information on your computer which you or your browser have already given to us so that your computer can then identify itself to our web server next time you want to do something and then our web server knows the correct information to give you (like which ad you want to edit or which city you want the search results for or which page of those search results is "Next"). That Session Cookie expires when you leave the site so it does not stay on your computer at all.  We also use a Persistent Cookie (which means that it does stay on your computer) and it simply contains some of that same "Session" information that was contained in the Session Cookie, like for example the link you used (if any was used) to come to our site to start with (for example if you clicked on a search result link after a search was done at Yahoo or at MSN for example and what the specific Search Term that was used) so when you visit us again our web server will be able to know how you had originally found our site the first time you came here in addition to how you found it the subsequent time.  We like to keep track of information like that so we can administer and evaluate the effectiveness of our own advertising efforts.  You can read our Privacy Policy if you like to know more about how we protect your privacy and how we use the information we obtain. NO Sensitive information is stored in the cookie.
