About Salvo
Throughout the Salvo websites the word 'Salvo' means the limited liability partnership 'Salvo Llp' at PO Box 4111, Bath BA1 0FL
Tel 01225 422300
Partners: Ruby Hazael and Thornton Kay
VAT No: 601 2742 86
UK Data Protection No: Z4658627
LLP Reg No: OC31107

Salvo was started in 1991 by Hazel Matravers and Thornton Kay who compiled and published the first Salvo directory. This was followed by SalvoNEWS, SALVO magazine, and Salvo Theft Alerts in 1992. SalvoWEB online was started in 1994, and the Salvo Code was started in 1995. The first Salvo Fair was held in Surrey in 1997.

Salvo's aim is to encourage and promote stockholding dealers in architectural salvage, garden antiques, reclaimed building materials and demolition salvage. Salvo also aims to increase appreciation and awareness of historical crafts skills and manufacture, and to help reduce the amount of salvageable materials from old buildings and gardens going to landfill. Salvo also tries to encourage fair trade and eco-friendly activities. Salvo puts dealers in touch with each other, and with private and professional buyers. Salvo puts private buyers and sellers in touch. Salvo puts disposers of low value reusables or recyclables in touch with possible buyers via SalvoMIE, the materials information exchange website. Salvo works with the police and others in trying to prevent theft from buildings and gardens by circulating Salvo Theft Alerts. Salvo provides information about architectural and garden antiques, reclaimed and recycled building materials, demolition salvage, craftspeople and other information relating to buildings, gardens, bygones, transport and machinery. Salvo runs the annual summer Salvo Fair at Knebworth, and occasionally Salvo helps with stands at other fairs.

DIY Wants & Offers
Classified free ads for people (not businesses) who want to buy or sell low value antique, reclaimed or salvaged items to someone in their local area. Typically this would be the kind of item which you might place on a postcard in your local newsagents, such as an old flush door, a few concrete flagstones or some leftover paint.

SalvoSITES
From 2011, any user with more than one item advertised on any of the Salvo websites will automatically be allocated a micro-site containing all of their ads. This micro-site is hosted at salvosites.com. It allows visitors to SalvoWEB to see all that user's items in a convenient way. Up to 10 ads can be placed free of charge on SalvoWEB, thereafter 10 - 50 ads costs 2p a day per ad, and above 50 ads costs 3p per ad viewed by a visitor on the micro-site so users only pay when their ad is viewed by human visitors. Duplicate visits, robots and search engines visits are not charged for.

WARNING about using Salvo websites
YOUR USE OF SALVO WEB SITES IS AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Salvo would like web pages, advertisements and emails to be accurate, legal, honest and unabusive. Salvo allows people to advertise and to reply to advertisements instantly. ADVERTS ARE NOT PRE-CHECKED BY SALVO. Salvo hopes that people will not abuse the open access given to them. BUT SOME PEOPLE DO ABUSE THE SYSTEM. This abuse is usually minor, for example using a superlative like 'the best' or 'top quality', or claiming to be a private seller rather than a trade seller. But people are able, for example, to put stolen items on to SalvoWEB, or items made in countries under unfair or illegal labour conditions.

It may help to treat SalvoWEB as you would treat a telesales company. If someone phones you trying to sell something, you take precautions. You check their identity, you are cautious about giving your details to them, you are wary about dealing in cash, you watch out for criminals trying to sell you stolen goods or rip-off merchants selling you repro while claiming it to be antique. SALVO SUGGESTS THAT YOU TAKE THE SAME PRECAUTIONS THAT YOU WOULD DO WITH TELEPHONE CALLERS WHEN DEALING WITH ANYONE VIA SALVOWEB.

CONSUMER ADVICE: BUYING SALVAGE FOR THE FIRST TIME? If you have not bought antique or reclaimed materials before, we suggest that you do not buy goods unless you have thoroughly inspected them and that you do not pay cash in advance for any item, in full or as a deposit.

TRADE USERS and DEALERS: When you register to use the paying or free systems on the Salvo sites you MUST select the TRADE option to go into the correct category on subsequent advertising. Failure to do this will result in your USER being blocked AND your ads BEING REMOVED. Your use of the Salvo systems means that you agree to this clause. It is not lawful in the UK and many other countries for traders in secondhand goods to claim that they are private inviduals. If you are not sure then please contact Salvo before you register and raise ads.

SECURITY CHECKS: From time to time Salvo asks for proof of a user's identity. Your use of this site means that you agree to this condition.

Salvo reserves the absolute right to block a free or paying user's control panel, to delete ads and to delete replies without giving any reason.

LIABILITY: PAYING USERS: Salvo's maximum liability to paying users of the SalvoWEB sites, in any event, will be a refund of the money paid, pro-rata to the time elapsed for a periodic subscription. No claim for consequential losses will be considered. Your use of the Salvo systems means that you agree to this clause.

LIABILITY: FREE USERS: Salvo disclaims any liability to free users of the SalvoWEB sites. No claim for consequential losses will be considered. Your use of the Salvo systems means that you agree to this clause.

Privacy and private users
Salvo tries to protect the privacy of private users.

REGISTERING AS A USER: New users are requested to provide some personal information. Salvo will not share, sell, or rent that information without a user's permission or unless ordered by a court of law.

USING THE SYSTEM: Users pass information via SalvoEMAILS and by posting ads on the Salvo web sites. Ads may be 'for sale' and 'wanted', and may also be 'theft alerts' or 'news' or other information. Users fill in forms online which result in the contents of these forms appearing on SalvoWEB, on SalvoSITES, on eSalvo, and being sent by SalvoEMAIL. We recommend that these ads do not contain email addresses, names or personal information, but if a user wishes to put their email address or name or phone number on an ad, then the system allows them to do so. BE WARNED that if a user places personal details in ads they will be seen on the internet. The Salvo system operates perfectly well without personal details in the 'ads'. User email addresses are hidden provided users do not place their email addresses in the body of their 'ads'. There are instructions about this on the online forms. The advantage of keeping personal details off the ads is that users private details are protected. The disadvantage of keeping personal details off the ads is that this restricts replies to email only, and prevents direct contact by phone or other means.

RECEIVING SalvoEMAILS: Users receive emails via Salvo in reply to ads and about topics of interest. It is possible for spammers, abusers, fraudsters and others to use SalvoEMAILS although Salvo endeavours to prevent this. All SalvoEMAILS have instructions on them for unsubscribing to those and future emails. All users have access to their own 'control panel' where they can select which if any SalvoEMAILS they receive. The control panel also allows users to delete ads and terminate their registration.

REGISTERING TO RECEIVE eSalvo: eSalvo is a weekly newsletter containing news, stories, events and ads. Registering to eSalvo is not the same as registering to SalvoWEB. You will have to register separately to log into SalvoWEB and reply to, or create ads. Salvo will require your email address to register to eSalvo. Salvo will not share, sell, or rent that information without the registrant's permission or unless ordered by a court of law.

Cookies SalvoWEB sends a simple php session cookie needed to help you move back and forth between SalvoWEB pages. Google Analytics sends four cookies to help it compile stats about SalvoWEB's users. You can opt out of Google Analytics cookies (see link below) on our site and all other sites which use them. Neither Google nor SalvoWEB collects personal data about you. Cookies are not shared, nor used for commercial or third party purposes. It is possible for a cookie to identify a unique computer, but cookies cannot be used to discover information personal to the user like their name or address. In theory, even without any cookies being set, a computer can be tracked via server access log files, rather like a phone company getting 'caller ID'. However Salvo has only heard of that happening in police investigations.

CONTENT: Salvo shall have no obligation to return any text or images delivered to it for uploading.

Salvo is registered under and complies with the UK Data Protection Acts.



Privacy and businesses
ONLINE DIRECTORIES: Salvo publishes directories of businesses on paper and on the internet. Information is supplied by the entrants themselves, or is gleaned from newspaper and magazine advertising, and from the internet. Registered users can go online and amend entries, or delete their users completely. Salvo will remove entries on request, usually within a few days, but not longer than forty days after the request has been received. Salvo may ask for proof of identity before removing, amending or including business details.

OTHER BUSINESS INFORMATION: The information held by Salvo is not always limited to that shown in the Salvo directory. Salvo may hold key employee names and phone numbers. Salvo may keep a brief history, which is kept private but is always visible to the user at the bottom of their control panel, which may contain business detail changes, business names, addresses, subscription and transaction information and emails. Salvo considers this information to be non-sensitive. Home phone numbers of some business proprietors are sometimes, but not often, given to telephone enquirers at our discretion, particularly when requested by another dealer, or when the proprietor is a sole trader who is used to being telephoned at home. Historical information about changes in business details, or cessation of business, may also be given to enquirers.

BUSINESS USERS: Business users pass information via SalvoEMAILS and by posting ads on the Salvo web sites and on their own web sites hosted by Salvo. Ads may be 'for sale' and 'wanted', or may contain other information. Business users fill in forms online which result in the contents of these forms appearing on SalvoWEB and being sent by SalvoEMAIL. We recommend that these ads do not contain email addresses, or personal names or personal information, but if a user wishes to put their email address or name or phone number on an ad, then the system allows them to do so. BE WARNED that if a user places personal details in ads they will be seen on the internet and will be trawled and cached by search engines such as Google. The Salvo system operates perfectly well using business details without personal details in the 'ads'. User email addresses are hidden provided users do not place their email addresses in the body of their 'ads'. There are instructions about this on the online forms. The advantage of keeping personal details off the ads is that users private details are protected.

CONTENT: Salvo shall have no obligation to return any text or images delivered to it for uploading.

DATA RETENTION LAWS: Salvo is not a public ISP as defined by data retention laws so it has no obligation to store data. European law requires public ISPs to store records of internet access and email header records for a year. Salvo stores log files for three months on its commercial dedicated and shared servers currently (April 09) in the UK and USA. These commercial providers have their own terms and conditions under which they release data on request to authorised agencies with the legal authority.

Cites
The law on trading endangered species is being tightened up through new Cites regulations and licensing laws. This applies to those importing or exporting woods such as Mahogany or Rosewood and objects such as tusks or certain taxidermy. It appears that you might have to apply for a licence if the piece is post 1947, however, those pre 1947 seem to be exempt. 31mar08
