3. Privacy

Trojans Trek is committed to protecting your online privacy. The following is to inform you about our online information-gathering and dissemination practices. By using the site and entering information about yourself, you agree to be bound by this privacy policy, as it’s been amended. If this policy is unacceptable and you are unwilling to be bound by it, please do not enter any information about yourself through this site.

Our overall policy is simple: We follow the Privacy Act of 1988, and if we collect information from you, we use it only for the purposes that were collected and the other limited purposes outlined below.

The details of our privacy policies. This statement may change over time — please review it periodically. By using this website after we post any changes to this Privacy Policy, you agree to accept those changes. If at any time you choose not to accept the terms of this Privacy Policy, then you will not enter information about yourself; if you have already done so, then you can opt out, as explained below.

Types of Information Collected

Trojans Trek collects two types of user information. We automatically collect non-personally identifiable information from our registration forms and online surveys. Non-personally identifiable information might include your IP address, browser type or operating system, domain name from which you linked to our site, area code, age, and other general demographic information. We use this non-personally identifiable information to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. We may share it with our affiliates or other business partners on an aggregated basis.

Our site’s donations, registration and contact forms, and online surveys may also request or require users to give us personally identifiable information (like their name, telephone number, home address and e-mail address). We may use the information from our donations form, registration form, and surveys to contact the user, but users may opt out of receiving future mailings. We will not sell or disclose your personally identifiable data to any third party unless:

(i) we change website hosts or our host transfers business assets (as further described below);

(ii) we first obtain permission from you;

(iii) we need to share it with agents or contractors who perform services for us; or

(iv) we are required by law to disclose it;

(v) or working with our research partner.

If you provide contact information, staff from Trojans Trek may ask to clarify your comment or question or to learn about your level of customer satisfaction with our services.
