We always welcome your questions and feedback. For privacy-related issues, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information We Collect
When you visit the Site you provide us with two types of information: (1) personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected by us; and (2) Site use information collected by us as you interact with our Site.
When you register with the Site, you provide us with certain personal information, such as your name, your email address, your telephone number, your address, your gender, and any other personal or preference information that you provide to us.
As with most web servers on the net, when you enter the Site we will automatically record certain information about your visit in a "log" file. This information may include your IP address, and hostname if available; the date and time of your access to the Site; the referring page, if there was one; the pages you visit on our Site; the type of browser and operating system you use (your browser will give this information automatically to all web servers); and the media files you have purchased, downloaded, played, the number of times they have been played, and the last date they were played.
In addition, we store certain information from your browser using "cookies." A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. We use session ID cookies to confirm that users are logged in. These cookies terminate once the user closes the browser. By default, we use a persistent cookie that stores your login ID and password to make it easier for you to login when you come back to the Site. You can remove or block this cookie using the settings in your browser if you want to disable this convenience feature.
When you use the Site, you may form relationships, send messages, perform searches and queries, form groups, set up events, and transmit information through various channels. We collect this information so that we can provide you the service and offer personalized features. In most cases, we retain it so that, for instance, you can return to view prior messages you have sent or easily see your friend list. When you update information, we usually keep a backup copy of the prior version for a reasonable period of time to enable reversion to the prior version of that information.
Using Information We Collect
If you submit personally identifiable information to us through the Site, then we use your personal information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Site.
We use both your personally identifiable information and certain non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous User usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, clickstream data, purchase and download data, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the Site and to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing User preferences and trends.
We do not use your email address or other personally identifiable information to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. However, in order to provide you with certain programs or features available to all subscribers to the Site, such as weather information and mapping, we will disclose your user ID (but not your password) to third party providers of such services. We also may use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major Site changes or for customer service purposes).
Profile And Policy Settings
When you register with the Site, you create your own profile and privacy settings. You will be able to specify whether you want your profile to be public or private. During registration, your profile is set to public. If you specify that you want your profile to be public, then all user information may be viewed by others. This includes but is not limited to your name, email, photos, blogs and videos. If you specify that you want your profile to be private, then only those other Users that you identify as a “friend” will be permitted to view such information.
Even if you have specified that you want your profile to be private, your User name, profile picture thumbnail, description and hunting preferences will be available in search results across the Site network and those limited pieces of information may be made available to third party search engines. People who see your name in searches, however, will not be able to access your MyOutdoors page unless you have designated them as a friend.
Information We Share With Others
We may contract with other companies to provide certain services, including credit card processing, email distribution, market research and promotions management. We provide these companies with only the information they need to perform their services and work closely with them to ensure that your privacy is respected and protected. These companies are prohibited by contract from using this information for their own marketing purposes or from sharing this information with anyone other than us.
We do not share your personally identifiable information (such as name or email address) with other, third-party companies for their commercial or marketing use without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out.
We do share non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous User usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third-parties to assist them in understanding the usage patterns for certain content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on the Site.
In some instances, we may be required to disclose specific information upon governmental request, in response to a court order, or when required by law to do so. We may also share information with companies assisting in fraud protection or investigation. We do not provide information to these agencies or companies for marketing or commercial purposes.
Third Party Advertising
We do not provide any personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. However, please note that if an advertiser asks us to show an advertisement to a certain audience (for example, men ages 18-34) or audience segment (for example, men ages 18-24 who have viewed certain channels of content) and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach. The advertiser may also use information regarding your use of the Site, such as the number of times you viewed an ad (but not any personally identifiable information), to determine which ads to deliver to you.
You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad servers or ad networks for more information on their practices and for instructions on how to opt-out of certain practices.
Changing Or Removing Information
Access and control over most personal information on the Site is readily available through the profile editing tools. Users may modify or remove any of their profile information at any time by logging into their account. Information will be updated immediately. Individuals who wish to deactivate their account may do so on the My Account page. Removed information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time but will not be generally available to members of the Site.
Where you make use of the communication features of the service to share information with other individuals on the Site, however, you generally cannot remove such communications.
Your account is protected by a password you create. We implement features reasonably designed to protect the security of any non-public personal information that is stored in our database, such as your password. We cannot, however, guaranty the security of your non-public personal information. Hacking, software or hardware failure and other unauthorized access to our premises and systems may compromise the security of our members' information.
Ultimately, your personal information is protected by the password you created when you created your account (or another password you chose after changing a previous password). Please keep this password confidential. No representative of the Company will ever ask you for your password. So if you receive any correspondence purportedly coming from us, please do not supply any password in response to any such request. The confidentiality of your password is yours to protect. You may change it anytime by going to My Account.
If you have any questions about the security of the Site, please contact us.
