| USER CONDITIONS FOR THE
CLASSIFIED AD SERVICE
The user acknowledges that the information he or she
provides BeaucoupPlus in the classified ad section
is neither confidential nor exclusive, does not contravene
the rights of any individual or entity and may be
published or displayed without restriction on the
sites of BeaucoupPlus or other affiliated sites.
Approval and impartial display of ads:
The ads submitted are,
depending on the category and content, manually or
automatically approved by BeaucoupPlus prior to being
displayed on the site.
Each approved ad is placed
in listhead in the category and sub-category consistent
with the ad content. Each ad subsequently approved
in a similar sub-category is also placed in listhead.
Previous ads are then shifted to the bottom of the
Payable options are available
for moving old ads to the top of the list, on a daily,
weekly or random basis or featuring them, on a random
or rotating basis, on the site’s home page.
We cannot guarantee how long an ad will remain at
the top of a list since other users may submit ads
subsequently, or opt for the automatic repositioning
option as well.
BeaucoupPlus cannot be held
responsible in the event two or more competing ads
are situated in close proximity to each other.
Duration of classified ad exposure:
The length of time the
ads are displayed online varies according to rates,
current promotions or options selected by the users.
BeaucoupPlus reserves the right to revise rates, promotions
or the display duration of new ads as it sees fit
and without notice.
BeaucoupPlus does, however,
agree to respect the display duration of ads already
online, as agreed when they were put online OR as
it sees fit, to reimburse the amount paid by the user,
pro rated according to the number of display days
Throughout the duration of
the online display, the user may, at no charge, revise
the text, title or content of their own ads as they
see fit, while respecting the spirit of the message.
Users may not, however, change the category or sub-category
of their ads. Revised ads are re-submitted for BeaucoupPlus
approval prior to being re-displayed online, without
extending the total display duration agreed to originally.
Payable options are also
available to users at any time for promoting their
ads. That being the case, the display duration will
be extended, free of charge, for the total number
of days agreed to originally.
ONCE SUBMITTED, THE
ADS MAY NOT BE COMPLETELY DELETED BEFORE EXPIRY, OR
BENEFIT FROM ANY REIMBURSEMENT. The users
may however, mask their ads, on their own initiative
and free of charge, as they become unnecessary.
As the expiry dates approaches,
at the discretion of BeaucoupPlus, an expiry notice
may be sent automatically to users to inform them.
Expired ads will be deleted
automatically from the site within a few days following
the expiry date. Since we do not store expired ads,
we cannot recuperate and re-display them. We therefore
strongly recommend keeping a copy in your personal
files, if need be.
