Your Yellow Pages account

1. What is a Yellow Pages Account and what are the benefits?

2. What is Facebook Connect?

Facebook Connect allows users to share community information very quickly and efficiently based on their facebook account. To learn more about Facebook Connect http://www.facebook.com/help/?page=730

3. How does privacy work with Facebook Connect sites?

When you connect with a website, it can access information you've added through Facebook to allow you to interact with your friends in new and interesting ways. The Platform Developer Terms of Service restrict how Yellow Pages Group can access this information, and all sites are contractually obligated to respect the privacy settings you've chosen for your account. These are the same terms that developers who have created the applications you use on Facebook must follow.

This means that if you've blocked a user on Facebook, that user will not be able to see you on a "connected" site. When other users connect with a website, those users will not be able to see information you've added through Facebook that they wouldn't otherwise be able to see simply by browsing Facebook. You can decide what type of information your friends' applications can access from the "Applications and Websites" section on the Privacy Settings page.

4. What is a profile page? And how can I access it?

A profile page is a public page that shows all the information that you've decided to share with the community, You can access it directly by typing the address: http://profiles.yellowpages.ca/yournickname or by clicking See My Public Profile from your Private profile page when you are logged in.

5. What are the privacy and security terms?

When it comes to privacy and security, Yellow Pages Group follows the best practices in terms of technologies and processes. Learn more about our Privacy policies. You can report any abuse or security issues by using our contact us form.

3. Why do I need to confirm my email address?

The email confirmation is sent to the email address you used to sign up for your Yellow Pages Account. (Note: this email address may be different from your Facebook email address).

If you did not receive the email confirmation, it may be due to an invalid email address or restrictions from your email provider or internet service that are blocking email from Yellow Pages.

First, check the email address you provided us with for your Yellow Pages Account. There may be a typo in the email address. If the email address is correct, then check your email spam filters to make sure that the confirmation email hasn't been sent to your junk, spam or bulk mail folders.
