We promise not to sell, lend or otherwise distribute the personal information you have entrusted to this Web site. It will remain confidential. We do not share email lists with anyone. We do not participate in the sending of unsolicited email.
Users who post their personal information on our Collectors Roster and Shop Talk public forum should be aware that said information is available to all Web users. We may refer genuine collectors to you if you have publicly listed a specialty, "wanted" item or "for sale" item. It is possible for spam abusers to harvest email addresses anywhere you have posted those addresses publicly. We do not recommend posting your email address in your forum messages. Registered users can block even registered members from viewing their email address in Shop Talk by clicking that option in "Edit Profile" on the forum. Our For Sale forums block your email from general public view.
Users of this site should exercise the same caution that they would use in any long distance relationship with a stranger. Opinions posted on our forum are the author's not necessarily that of Primarily Petroliana. Buyers and sellers should use common sense. Problems should be reported to the site administrator. No warranty is intended, but certain actions will be taken.
We prohibit the gathering of email addresses from this site. If you should receive unsolicited bulk email, do not respond to it in any way. Do not even reply to "remove." Unscrupulous bulk emailers use your response to verify your address and sell it.
Reports of problems at this site are very few. But if you are uncomfortable with exposing your email address or other information to the Web:
