In recent months and weeks, several industry events have brought privacy, security, and payment concerns to the forefront for many of you. We wanted to take a moment to clarify our position on these topics...

Privacy and Security
Slixa’s overall philosophy from the beginning has been that the right to privacy is a basic human right, no different from your rights to freedom, dignity, or equality. We use this philosophy when making policy decisions that result in a broad range of privacy benefits to you. However, much of this happens behind the scenes and you might not be aware of the lengths we go to in order to keep your data safe.
To help address that today and in the future, we’ve created an important non-legaleze (layperson's speak) page explaining how we handle your privacy and what we do to keep your data secure. We highly recommend taking a moment to read it, and would love to hear your feedback.
For example, Slixa doesn’t want to know your identity. Learn more about what information Slixa requires from you, how we use it, and how we keep it safe...
Advertising on Slixa
We firmly believe you have the right to advertise the way you wish and should not have to conform to a cookie-cutter approach and rigid rules set by your advertising website. Slixa’s credit system was designed with that in mind. Your credit balance is like a bank account balance, allowing you to use your credits any way you wish.
Slixa offers the most flexible ads in the industry. Run your ads for a single day*, or set them to renew forever. Our "pause and resume" feature allows you to remove ads from the site without deleting the ad and forfeiting your purchase. Slixa puts you in control of your advertising - you’ll never pay for an ad you’re not using.
Your Slixa credits never expire. If you take a break, your credits will be waiting for you when you return, even months later.
Slixa visiting ads have no minimum time frame and no additional fees - you can run a visiting ad for a single day if you’re only in town for a night, and it won’t cost you any more than running a non-visiting base ad.
* In order to encourage high quality profiles, we do require a minimum credit purchase. Once your credits have been purchased, you can run ads for any length of time.
Slixa has always had extremely flexible payment options (your name not required), and now we’ve added Bitcoin to the list. When paying by credit card we ask only for the number, expiry, and CVV code.
- All standard credit and debit cards
- Prepaid and gift cards
- Cash (deposit at participating banks)
