- All additions and alterations to adverts will be monitored. Astronomy Know How
retains the right to delete any entry it considers unsuitable
- The Advertiser should delete the advert if the goods are sold
- The email address of the Advertiser will at no time appear on the website
- Every month you will get an email telling you how many times your advert has been
viewed since you first entered it.
- There will be an administrative charge of £25.00 if you ask us to add, edit or
delete your advert or your personal details. The monthly email will remind you of the
user name you used and if you have forgotten your password you can get a new one
automatically. Once logged in, you can do all the above quite easily.
- Any account that has not been used for a year will be flagged and you will be emailed to
ask you if you want to keep it. If you take no action, you will be emailed again about a month
later and finally a month after that your account and any remaining adverts will be deleted.
Logging into your account will re-activate the account for another year
even if you take no action other than to log out again!

- Indicating where you live by entering your County or State or at the very least your
Country gives any prospective enquirer a chance to assess if a transaction is realistic.
- The monthly email telling you how many times your advert is viewed is intended to help you
assess your situation. If lots and lots of people are looking but not enquiring, then maybe you have set the
price too high, and if no-one is looking, then maybe re-wording the title line to be more
eyecatching might help - or it may even serve as reminder to delete the ad as you have sold
