This Sportsman Regs Privacy Statement applies to data collected by Sportsman Regs through the applications, web sites and services that display these terms. It does not apply to those Sportsman Regs applications, web sites, and services that do not display or link to this statement or that have their own privacy statements.
At some Sportsman Regs sites or in some of the applications, we ask you to
provide personal information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work
address, or telephone number. We may also collect demographic information, such
as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites. If you
choose to make a purchase or sign up for a paid subscription service, we will
ask for additional information, such as your credit card number and billing
address, which is used to create a Sportsman Regs billing account.
In order to access some Sportsman Regs services, you will be asked to sign in with an e-mail address and password, which we refer to as your Sportsman Regs credentials. You can use your credentials to sign in to the Sportsman Regs web site and services, as well as those of select Sportsman Regs partners. By signing in on one Sportsman Regs site or service, you may be automatically signed into other Sportsman Regs sites and services that use the Sportsman Regs credentials. If you access our services via a mobile phone, you may also use your telephone number and a PIN as an alternative credential to your username and password. As part of creating your credentials, you may also be requested to provide questions and secret answers, which we use to help verify your identity and assist in resetting your password, as well as an alternate e-mail address. Some services may require added security, and in these cases, you may be asked to create an additional security key. Finally, a unique ID number will be assigned to your credentials which will be used to identify your credentials and associated information.
We collect additional information about your interaction with Sportsman Regs applications, web sites and services without identifying you as an individual. For example, we use Web site analytics tools on our sites to retrieve information from your browser, including the site you came from, the search engine(s) and the keywords you used to find our site, the pages you view within our site, your browser add-ons, and your browser's width and height. We also use technologies, such as cookies and web beacons (described below), to collect information about the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take on our sites and services. Additionally, we receive certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring Web site addresses. We also deliver advertisements (see the Display of Advertising section below) and we may provide Web site analytics tools on non-Sportsman Regs sites and services, and we collect information about page views on these third party sites as well.
When you receive newsletters or promotional e-mail from Sportsman Regs, we may use web beacons (described below), customized links or similar technologies to determine whether the e-mail has been opened and which links you click in order to provide you more focused e-mail communications or other information.
In order to offer you a more consistent and personalized experience in your interactions with Sportsman Regs, information collected through one Sportsman Regs service may be combined with information obtained through other Sportsman Regs services. We may also supplement the information we collect with information obtained from other companies. For example, we may use services from other companies that enable us to derive a general geographic area based on your IP address in order to customize certain services to your geographic area.
Sportsman Regs collects and uses your personal information to operate and
improve its applications, web sites and services. These uses may include
providing you with more effective customer service; making the sites or services
easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same
information; performing research and analysis aimed at improving our products,
services and technologies; and displaying content and advertising that are
customized to your interests and preferences.
We also use your personal information to communicate with you. We may send certain mandatory service communications such as welcome letters, billing reminders, information on technical service issues, and security announcements. Some Sportsman Regs services may send periodic member letters that are considered part of the service. Additionally, with your permission, we may also occasionally send you product surveys or promotional mailings to inform you of other products or services available from Sportsman Regs and its affiliates, information about other Sportsman Regs products and services, and/or share your personal information with Sportsman Regs partners so they may send you information about their products and services.
Personal information collected on Sportsman Regs sites and services may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Sportsman Regs or its affiliates, subsidiaries or service providers maintain facilities. Sportsman Regs abides by the safe harbor framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of data from the European Union, the European Economic Area, and Switzerland.
Except as described in this statement, we will not disclose your personal
information outside of Sportsman Regs and its controlled subsidiaries and
affiliates without your consent. Some Sportsman Regs sites allow you to choose
to share your personal information with select Sportsman Regs partners so that
they can contact you about their products, services or offers.
Some Sportsman Regs services are co-branded by Sportsman Regs and another company. In some cases, both a Sportsman Regs privacy statement and the other company’s privacy statement will be displayed. If so, information you provide, such as on registration forms, is collected by both Sportsman Regs and the other company.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, hosting websites, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. Those service providers will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose than for delivering the service to Sportsman Regs in accordance with Sportsman Regs’s instructions and policies. However, our fraud detection vendors may use data to help improve their services. This helps them more accurately detect fraudulent transactions. We may access or disclose information about you, including the content of your communications, in order to: (a) comply with the law or respond to lawful requests or legal process; (b) protect the rights or property of Sportsman Regs or our customers, including the enforcement of our agreements or policies governing your use of the services; or (c) act on a good faith belief that such access or disclosure is necessary to protect the personal safety of Sportsman Regs employees, customers or the public. We may also disclose personal information as part of a corporate transaction such as a merger or sale of assets.
Depending on the respective service, you may have the ability to view or edit
your personal information online. In order to help prevent your personal
information from being viewed by others, you will be required to sign in with
your credentials (e-mail address and password). The appropriate method(s) for
accessing your personal information will depend on which sites or services you
Some Sportsman Regs sites or services may collect personal information that is not accessible via the links above. However, in such cases, these sites and services may provide you with alternative means of access to your data described by the service.
You can stop the delivery of future promotional e-mail from Sportsman Regs sites and services by following the specific instructions in the e-mail you receive.
Some of the applications, web sites and services we offer, as well as those
of our partners, may be supported by advertising. We may display ads on our own
sites and the sites of our advertising partners.
When we display online advertisements to you, we will place a one or more persistent cookies on your computer in order to recognize your computer each time we display an ad to you. The cookies we use for advertising have an expiry date of no more than 2 years. Because we may serve advertisements on several different web sites, we are able to compile information over time about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw and/or clicked on the advertisements we display. We use this information to make predictions about your characteristics, interests or preferences and to display targeted advertisements that we believe may be of interest to you. We may also associate this information with your subsequent visit, purchase or other activity on participating advertisers’ Web sites in order to determine the effectiveness of the advertisements.
While we may use some of the information we collect in order to personalize the ads we show you, we designed our systems to select ads based only on data that does not personally and directly identify you. For example, we may select the ads we display according to certain general interest categories or segments that we have inferred based on (a) demographic or interest data, including any you may have provided when creating an account (e.g. age, zip or postal code, gender), demographic or interest data acquired from other companies, and a general geographic location derived from your IP address, (b) the pages you view and links you click when using Sportsman Regs’s and its advertising partners’ applications, web sites and services. When we display personalized targeted ads, we take a number of steps designed to protect your privacy. For example, we store page views, clicks and search terms used for ad personalization targeting separately from your contact information or other data that directly identifies you (such as your name, e-mail address, etc.). Further, we have built in technological and process safeguards designed to prevent the unauthorized correlation of this data. We also give you the ability to opt-out of personalized targeted ads.
Although the majority of the online advertisements on Sportsman Regs sites are displayed by Sportsman Regs, we also allow third-party ad serving companies, including other ad networks, to display advertisements on our sites. These companies may include, but are not limited to: 24/7 Real Media, aCerno,Inc, AdBlade, AdConion, AdFusion, Advertising.com, Bane Media, Brand.net, CasaleMedia, Collective Media, Fox Interactive, Interclick, Millennial, PrecisionClick, ROI Media, Social Media, SpecificMedia, TrafficMarketplace, Tribal Fusion, ValueClick, and YuMe.
These companies may offer you a way to opt-out of ad targeting based on their cookies, and some of them are also members of the Network Advertising Initiative. You may find more information by clicking on the company names above and following the links to the Web sites of each company.
Sportsman Regs is committed to protecting the security of your personal
information and information collected for advertising purposes. We use a variety
of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal
information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store
the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access,
which are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential
information (such as a credit card number or password) over the Internet, we
protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL)
If a password is used to help protect your accounts and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to your information from subsequent users.

Sportsman Regs applications, web sites and services are intended for general audiences and do not knowingly collect any personal information from children.

We will not knowingly ask children under the age of 13 to provide information.

Sportsman Regs Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons -
sometimes called single-pixel gifs - that may be used to assist in delivering
cookies on our sites and allow us to count users who have visited those pages
and to deliver co-branded services. We may include Web beacons in promotional
e-mail messages or our newsletters in order to determine whether messages have
been opened and acted upon.
Sportsman Regs may also employ Web beacons from third parties in order to help us compile aggregated statistics regarding the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns or other operations of our sites. We prohibit Web beacons on our sites from being used by third parties to collect or access your personal information.
Finally, we may work with other companies that advertise on Sportsman Regs sites to place Web beacons on their sites in order to allow us to develop statistics on how often clicking on an advertisement on a Sportsman Regs site results in a purchase or other action on the advertiser's site.
Sportsman Regs will not sell, lease or rent its e-mail subscriber lists to third parties. While Sportsman Regs continues to actively review and implement new technology, such as expanded filtering features, there is no currently available technology that will totally prevent the sending and receiving of unsolicited e-mail. Using junk e-mail tools and being cautious about the sharing of your e-mail address while online will help reduce the amount of unsolicited e-mail you receive.
