Who we are and our Privacy Policy

TheMode.com is a Musician's Free Classified - Musicians can place listings to meet other people to jam with, buy and sell equipment, etc. It is the responsibility of the user to be safe when meeting people through this website. If you have the slightest unease about meeting and jamming with musicians unknown to you bring along a friend. This website is operated by Bruce Schiller, brew@theMode.com, a musician just like you.

TheMode.com gathers no user information, other than info you enter when you post a listing. We save your email address, but will not sell it or use it for other nefarious purposes. Remember, though, that whatever info you post, is able to be viewed and harvested by spammers on the web. We recommend using a temporary throwaway address from Hotmail or Yahoo. In addition, we have a stealth feature on the website which hides your email address and relays email to you via theMode.com, if you use it your email address is not available to spammers. When we place a cookie on your browser, it is placed only to remember you from one database query to the next and lasts only until the end of your session. When you close your browser, the cookie is automatically deleted.

We sometimes use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Web site. These companies may use aggregated information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

As always, use common sense when meeting musicians unkown to you.
