Your privacy is very important to us. At Ty Outdoors we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
Like most website operators, Ty Outdoors collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Ty Outdoors’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our website.
Ty Outdoors also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments/reviews on our products. Ty Outdoors only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that product commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the website where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Ty Outdoor’ website choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, visitors reviewing our products are asked to provide a name and email address. Those who wish to receive to contact Ty Outdoors via our online form, we collect their name, phone number, address, and emails. In each case, Ty Outdoors collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us. Ty Outdoors does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Ty Outdoors may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Ty Outdoors may monitor the most popular pages on our site or use spam screened by the Wordfence service to help identify spam. Ty Outdoors may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Ty Outdoors does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Ty Outdoors 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 Ty Outdoors’ behalf or to provide services available at Ty Outdoors’ 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 Ty Outdoors’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Ty Outdoors 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, Ty Outdoors discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Ty Outdoors believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Ty Outdoors, third parties or the public at large. Ty Outdoors takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
What rights you have over your data?
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
If Ty Outdoors, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Ty Outdoors 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 Ty Outdoors may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
