Log Files

As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (“IP”) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Although we do not routinely associate this data with records containing Personal Data, we will use IP addresses to identify any user who refuses to comply with our Terms of Use and to identify users who threaten our service, Site, or other users.

Cookies

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies on this site and do not link this information stored in cookies to personally identifiable information you submit while on our site. We may use both session ID cookies and/or persistent cookies as part of the Site’s functionality. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser and allows the Site to display your current session. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time and may be used to store your username or other identifier used by the Site. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file.
Most browsers have an option for turning off the cookie feature, which will prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, as well as allowing you to decide on acceptance of each new cookie in a variety of ways. We strongly recommend that you leave the cookies activated in order to ensure the proper functionality of the Site.

Ads

Ads appearing on the Site may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by PG and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Web site. These companies may use aggregated information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

External Links

Our Site provides links to various third party websites. However, even if a third-party affiliation exists between our site and that destination site, we do not exercise authority over these linked sites, each of which maintains independent privacy and data collection policies and procedures. We do not assume responsibility or liability and are not responsible for the independent policies and procedures of destination sites. Similarly, we cannot take responsibility for the privacy initiatives or the content of such websites. However, we wish to ensure the integrity of our site and any destination links, so any comments pertaining to any website accessed through these links are greatly appreciated.

Children

PG respects the sensitive nature of children’s privacy online. We do not direct any of our content or services, not do we knowingly collect Personal Data from children under the age of 13. If you are under thirteen, please do not submit any Personal Data through the Site. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided Personal Data to PG through the Site, please contact us and we will endeavor to delete that information from our databases.

Exclusions

This Privacy Policy does not apply to any information collected by PG other than Personal Data collected through the Site.

Please think carefully before disclosing Personal Data in a Public Area.

Security

We employ reasonable security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the personal Data under our control. Personal Data is stored in a secured database and always sent via an encrypted SSL protocol when supported by your browser. However, no Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, email sent to or from the Site may not be secure. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email.

Opt-Out

We provide you the opportunity to “opt-out” of having your personally identifiable information used for certain purposes, when we ask you for this information. For example, when you register for the Site, if you do not wish to receive any additional material or notifications from us, you can indicate your preference on our registration form.

Our Use of Your Personal Data and Other Information

We use the Personal Data you provide in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data for a certain reason, we may use the Personal Data in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For instance, registration information submitted when creating your account, may be used to help suggest products to you based on past purchases. Also, we may use your Personal Data to provide access to services on the Site and monitor your use of such services. PG may also use your Personal Data and other personally non-identifiable information collected through the Site to help us improve the content and functionality of the Site, to better understand our users, and to improve our services.

Aggregated Statistics

PG may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, PG may monitor the most popular users or pages on the SportsmansMarketplace.com site. PG may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, PG does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

PG discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on PG’ behalf or to provide services available at PG' websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using PG' websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. PG will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, PG discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when PG believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of PG, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an PG website and have supplied your email address, PG may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with PG and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. PG takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Business Transfers

If PG, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that PG goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of PG may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, PG may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in PG' sole discretion. PG encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a SportsmansMarketplace.com account, you should also check your account for alerts to these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
