Last updated: November 15, 2018

This Privacy Policy describes how Outdoor Sites Network ('Outdoor Sites Network', ‘OSN’, 'we', 'us' or 'our') collects personal information in connection with our websites and mobile or other applications on which this Privacy Policy is posted or linked to (collectively, the 'Site'), and how this information may be used, shared and safeguarded. Personal information is information about you as an identifiable Site visitor.

By visiting our Site or otherwise providing us with personal information, you agree that we may collect, use and share your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree, please do not visit our Site or provide us with any personal information. We may at any time and at our sole discretion update this Privacy Policy by posting the updated Privacy Policy here along with the date on which the Privacy Policy was changed. Any changes will be effective immediately upon the posting of or linking to the revised Privacy Policy on our Site.

1. Information we collect.

In general, you may visit our Site without providing any personal information. However, in order to use certain features, we may need to collect your personal information. For example:

We collect your username, email address and password when you create an account or public user profile. We collect additional information that you choose to add to your account or public user profile, such as a profile picture or information about your hobbies and interests.

We collect your name, contact information and payment card information when you purchase a product or service through our Site (such as a subscription or classified advertisement).

Our Site may offer public forums or communication platforms that allow you to communicate with other users, post information, content, images, photos or videos, post your opinions on surveys, or submit reviews or ratings (collectively, your 'Content'). Your Content will be associated with your public user profile. Your Content and public user profile is public, unencrypted and non-confidential. This means that it can be read and used by others, including advertisers. We are not responsible for the information you choose to submit in these public areas. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information in public areas of our Site.

We collect geographical location information if the Site you are using is location-enabled and your device transmits location data and/or your IP address, so we can provide location-specific information to you.

We may collect personal information when you participate in a survey, poll, contest or promotion, such as your name and contact information and responses to survey or poll questions or the information you provide on a contest entry form.

We may collect other personal information with your consent or where required or permitted by law.

We, our service providers and third party advertising partners also collect information about Site visitors automatically using cookies and other tracking technologies. See Cookies, tracking technologies and interest-based advertising below.

2. How we use the information we collect?

We generally use the personal information we collect to provide the product, service, feature or information you have requested and for our reasonable business purposes, including:

to manage our Site and provide our services, such as to create and administer accounts and facilitate the use and enjoyment of forums and communication platforms;
to enable geographic-specific features, such as geographic-specific pricing and information; to process payments;
to notify you of changes to your account or our Site's services, terms, conditions or policies and to provide you with administrative messages, updates, legal notices, technical notices or security alerts;

This information may be used to determine how many visitors visit our Site or certain areas of our Site, how long they remain on our Site, whether they use the hyperlinks we provide or respond to advertising and to tailor our advertisements to you. We may share this information with partners who referred you to our Site, and with advertising partners, who may use the information to optimize the traffic they send to us and for delivering targeted ads to you when you visit other websites.

We, our service providers and third-party advertising partners collect information about Site visitors using cookies and other tracking technologies (including browser cookies, pixels and Adobe Flash).

Aggregate or de-identified information
We may use your personal information to create aggregate statistics and de-identified data. We may use, share and sell this information for any purpose.

With your consent

For example, if you provide us with your contact information, such as an e-mail address, for the purposes of signing up for information, newsletters, contests, or marketing offers from a third party, or for receiving business offers or service quotes from a third party, we may share your personal information for that purpose. Once shared, your personal information will be subject to the privacy policy of that third party.

Business Transactions
We may disclose personal information to third parties in connection with the proposed or actual financing, securitization, insuring, sale, assignment or other disposal of all or part of OSN or our business or assets.

We will use reasonable efforts to ensure that our successors or assigns process the information we transfer to them in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy.

5. How we store and protect personal information

Personal information is maintained on our servers (or those of our service providers). In an effort to protect your personal information against unauthorized access or disclosure. For example, accounts you create on our Sites are password protected. In identified parts of our Sites, we use SSL-encryption to protect data transmissions. We limit access to personal information to employees, representatives and service providers who require access in connection with their job responsibilities. Please note it is not possible to transmit data with absolute security over the internet, and we cannot and do not guarantee the security of your personal information.

6. Links to external content

Our Site may link or direct you to other websites, services or external content provided by third parties. We do not exercise any control over these third party websites or services. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of such third party websites or services. We recommend that you read the privacy policy for any third party website that you visit or service that you use.

7. Children

Our Sites are not directed to and we do not knowingly request or collect personal information from children - persons under 13 years of age, or another age if required by applicable law - without prior verifiable parental consent. If we become aware that we have unknowingly collected personal information about a child without verifiable parental consent, we will delete this information from our records or, if that is not reasonable, we will take reasonable available steps to de-identify the information.
