WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU AND WHY?
The information we collect from you allows you to log into our Sites and use our Services and Applications. We also collect information from businesses, organizations, and individuals who request information from us.
Individuals may provide us information directly or indirectly by using our Services (these individuals are referred to as “Consumers”). For example, you may enter your information in order to reserve a campsite or purchase a campsite permit or a hunting or fishing license. Relatedly, organizations and entities that use our Services to provide a service to Consumers (our “Clients”) (including agents of our Clients) may provide us with personal information about individuals who have reserved a campsite or purchased a hunting or fishing license or who the Client wants us to contact or otherwise provide Services to on behalf of the Client.
Information We Collect Directly From You.
Account Information for our Sites. You may browse our Sites without creating an online account or providing us with your information, but to use certain features, you may need to create an account or otherwise provide us with information. When you create an account with us or register for an activity, we may ask you to provide the following:
Log in Information for our Sites. Once you have signed up for a particular Site, on subsequent visits to the same Site, you may simply need to enter your user ID or email address (as applicable) and password to gain access to that Site.
Log in and Location Information for our Applications. When you first visit any of our Applications, you may have the option of creating a user ID and password for subsequent visits. When you log into certain of our Applications, we will request your permission to obtain your current location (so-called “geolocation” information) so that we can provide location-related services, for example, so that we can help you to find a campground, locations to purchase equipment, and other valuable information. In the “settings” function on your phone, you will have the ability to manually permit or preclude us from recording your geolocation information for certain Applications or features of Applications.
Contests, Surveys and Questionnaires. When you sign up for sweepstakes or contests, or complete questionnaires or surveys, we collect information that you submit to us. We use this information to administer the sweepstakes, contest or survey, to analyze the results, for research purposes, to send you other information or offers we think may be of interest to you, to comply with legal requirements, and for other purposes as discussed in this Policy.
Licenses, Reservations, Permits, and Fines. When you purchase hunting or fishing licenses, camping permits, or submit payment for fines, we may require additional information about you in order to complete your request. For example, we may need your driver’s license number, social security number, or visa or passport number in order to verify your identity and process your request. In addition, we might collect public agency reservation information (e.g., information about your planned visit to a specific government agency-operated or government agency-administered campground or park, such as dates of stay or number of occupants, other than personal information). Any such personal information is used only as necessary in order to help complete your transaction.
User Profiles, Comments and Posts. Some of our Sites and Applications may allow users to create or post content, such as comments, profiles, blogs, and messages. If you provide content to our Sites, we may collect and use that information as described in this Policy. Please note that such information may be viewed, collected or used by other registered users and public visitors to our Sites. Once posted, we cannot prevent such information from being used in a manner that may violate this Policy, the law or your personal privacy. Your profile, however, may offer privacy settings within your account to help you manage how your content is displayed.
Job Site References. As part of applying for employment with us, we may ask you for information such as details regarding your education, employment history, qualifications, and the contact information of a former colleague’s name. This information is used for job reference purposes only and is not used for any other purpose.
Information We Collect from Facebook. We may provide you with the opportunity to connect via Facebook, through our Sites or Applications. If you log into Facebook through our Sites or Applications, we will request permission to access your basic information, which includes your name, profile picture, gender, networks, Facebook user ID, list of friends and any other information that you have made public on Facebook. For information about how Facebook may disclose your information, including any information you make public, please consult the Facebook Data Use Policy.

Clients should note that we may use information we receive or collect regarding Consumers in accordance with the terms of this Policy, including in the manner set forth above. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in certain contexts, we collect information on behalf of our Clients subject to contractual requirements that limit our ability to use and transfer your information in ways that are more narrow than those in this Policy (e.g., the information be only used as necessary to provide Services to the Client and/or for other specified purposes). In those limited circumstances, your information is subject to those contractual requirements and not to this Policy, subject to enforcement by the applicable Client. If your information is collected on behalf of a third party, it will be evident at the time that you provide such information. This Policy does not cover our Clients’ use of your information outside of our Services. You should contact that party directly to determine if your information is subject to such limitations on uses and to ascertain how the third party will make use of your information.

Information shared for these purposes is governed by this Policy.

Any access to and use of such linked websites is not governed by this Policy, but, instead, is governed by the privacy policies of those third party websites, and we are not responsible for the information practices of such third party websites.
HOW SECURE IS INFORMATION ABOUT ME?
We have implemented commercially reasonable precautions, including, where appropriate, password protection, encryption, and secure socket layering to protect our Sites and the information we collect from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Please be aware that despite our efforts, no data security measures can guarantee 100% security all of the time. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any of your personal information via our Sites.
You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, computer, and web-enabled devices, among other things, by signing off after using a shared computer, inserting a password on your web-enabled device, choosing a password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, keeping your password private, and periodically changing your password. You should never share your log-in information with others. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen or compromised passwords, or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.
CAN I ACCESS AND MODIFY MY PERSONAL INFORMATION?
Upon request, we will provide you with information about whether we hold, or process on behalf of a third party, any of your personal information. To request this information please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your personal information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct, update, delete/remove, or ask to have it removed from a public forum or testimonial by making the change within your account settings or by contacting us via one of the methods listed in this Policy. We will respond to your request to access within 30 days.

In the event we are unable to complete your access request, we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why. We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law.
If your information has been shared with a third party, as described above, or collected on behalf of a Client, then that third party has received their own copy of your data. If you have been contacted by one of these third parties, or one of our Clients, and wish to correct or request they delete your information, please contact them directly.
WHAT CHOICES DO I HAVE REGARDING MY INFORMATION?
We may send you emails from time-to-time, for example, to ask you about an activity in which you participated.

In addition, you may still receive emails sent by our Clients through means other than our system. Further, if you opt-out of receiving information related to a particular activity, you will still receive communications from us and communications related to other activities. So you may have to unsubscribe from multiple emails before you stop receiving all communications related to activities for which you registered through our Services.

Even after you opt-out of all communications, we will retain your information in accordance with this Policy, however, we will no longer use it to contact you. However, our Clients who have received your information in accordance with this Policy may still use that information to contact you in accordance with their own privacy policies, but they may not use our system to do so.
