This Privacy Policy applies to Trail 9 Outdoors and its related entities, if any (hereinafter, “us”, “we”, “our”, or “Trail9Outdoors.com”). This Privacy Policy governs how we collect personally identifying and non-personal information from you as well as how it is stored and used. Information collected from the users from sources other than the Website is not covered under this Privacy Policy statement.

The privacy of our users is very important to us, and we make sure that your personal data is safe with us as per the California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA) and European Union General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR).

Website Visitors

We collect non-personally identifying information including, but not limited to, the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date, time, and frequency of each visit. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our website. We reserve the right to publish this data in the form of reports and aggregated indexes on different platforms to ensure transparency in our operations and analyze trends to improve our services.

We also collect information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and location data for users. We only disclose logged-in user and commenter IP addresses in fraud cases where law enforcement agencies are involved.

Gathering Personally Identifying Information

Certain visitors to our website choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information including, but not limited to, demographics such as age, gender, location, mobile number, and mailing address that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a user account to provide a username and email address. Note that the account credentials are confidential, and no one but you have the right to use it for making any purchases or performing any other activity. Note that users under the age of 15 are not allowed on the website, and we do not knowingly collect any information from underage people.

Newsletters/Promotional Offers/Surveys/Contact Us

From time to time, we reserve the right to collect additional information via promotional offers, surveys, and other means such as website forms. These are sent either through email on your registered address or on-site as deemed fit. In the future, there can be an option to ‘refer a friend,’ if necessary, where you can refer our products or services to anyone by providing their emails. Note that these email addresses are stored and can be used to contact the person for our offers and newsletters.

Comments/Feedback/Testimonials

Certain portions of the website allow the users to share their feedback, testimonials, or comments. We reserve the right to store this information and use it for any desired purposes as deemed fit by us. By posting your comments, feedback, or testimonials, you agree to allow us to process this data to produce reports or indexes for improving our services or for any other purposes.

It is up to us to allow the use of social media plug-ins, including Facebook, Twitter, or any other, to sign up or log in to our website and/or application, if deemed fit.

Security

The security of your personal information is important to us but note that no method of transmission over the internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. We have a dedicated team of experts to ensure data privacy; however, data over the internet is not completely safe. In case of any mishap, we cannot be held liable.

Remarketing Tags for Google, LinkedIn, and Facebook

We use remarketing services to advertise on third-party websites including, but not limited to, Google, Facebook, and LinkedIn to previous visitors of our site. It means that we can advertise our ads to users who abandoned their cart or left an activity incomplete, like filling out a form. This can be in the form of an ad on a site in the Google Display Network, Google search results, Facebook, LinkedIn, or any other social networking platform. These tech giants collect information via cookies to serve targeted, interest-based ads. The privacy of data collected will be protected under our own privacy policy and those of Facebook, Google, and LinkedIn. The preferences for these can be changed from cookies settings in browsers or by using a plug-in.

We also reserve the right to publish any of your queries with our answers on different forums on account of helping other users resolve the problem that you faced.
