Personal information collected and/or processed by Free Stuff Junction is held in accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998, and is NEVER sold, licensed or traded to third parties.

• Whether the request was successful
• The size (in bytes) sent in response
• The referring page (where the client came from), as supplied by the client browser

Free Stuff Junction Newsletter
Free Stuff Junction operates an opt-in newsletter mailing list in order to keep in touch with visitors to the website. The procedure for subscribing to the newsletter requires the user to first submit an email address to be subscribed. Our automated system then sends an email message to the email address supplied informing the owner of that email account of the subscription attempt. We include the IP address from which the subscription attempt originated from in this initial message. At this point the email address supplied is not placed on our mailing list. We also include an "abuse" email address in this email to which the recipient of the message may inform us if they believe their email address has been used without their consent. This initial message also contains a "clickable" hyperlink which the owner of the email account must visit in order to confirm their request to subscribe to the newsletter. This hyperlink is generated automatically and contains information unique to the user. This makes it impossible for anyone other than the recipient of the confirmation email to confirm the subscription. Only once the owner of the email account in question has "clicked" this link is the email address originally submitted added to our mailing list.
Whenever we send out a newsletter mailing it includes at the bottom instructions for the user to follow in order to remove themselves from our mailing list. Included in the instructions is a hyperlink which the recipient of the newsletter may "click" in order to remove themselves automatically and immediately from the mailing list. The recipient of the newsletter can also reply to the email to request that their email address be removed from our mailing list. Users may also contact Free Stuff Junction via our website via the "Contact Us" link to request that their email address be removed.
All requests for manual removal from our newsletter mailing list are removed as soon as possible and, at the latest, BEFORE the next mailing is sent to the list. Automatic removal via the newsletter hyperlink takes place immediately.
