WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT WHEN YOU USE OUR SITE?

Information You Provide-          

We collect the personal information you knowingly provide (using your mouse and keyboard) when you use our Site. The information we collect depends on how you use our Site. For example: If you sign up name and e-mail address and any related information you provide. If you make a purchase at our online store, we collect the information you submit when you place your order, including your credit card and shipping information. If you ship an item to another person, we collect the information you provide about that person, such as his/her name, address and other contact information. If you upload photographs,comments or other user generated content (“User Generated Content”) to our Site we collect that information also. All User Generated Content you upload to our Site must comply with our Terms and Conditions.

Information Sent to Us by Your Web Browser-

We collect information that is sent to us automatically by your Web browser. This information typically includes your IP address, the name and version of your operating system, the name and version of your browser, the date and time of your visit, and the pages you visit. Please check your browser if you want to learn what information your browser sends or how to change your settings. 

This information does not identify you personally. Generally, we use this information to improve our Site and make it more compatible with the technology used by you and our other visitors. In most cases, we do not link the information sent by your browser to information that identifies you personally. However, if you have created a user identity, for example, by signing up to use a password-protected area of our Site, we may link your IP address to information that identifies you personally. We may also link your IP address to personally identifiable information you submit in placing an order. In addition, when you access our Site by clicking on a link in an e-mail or other electronic communication you receive from us, your browser tells us that someone has clicked on a particular link in a communication addressed to you. We collect that information to improve the effectiveness of our marketing efforts. We may also review our server logs—which contain visitors’ IP addresses—for security purposes, such as detecting intrusions into our network. If we suspect criminal activity, we may share our server logs with the appropriate investigative authorities who could use that information to trace and identify individuals.

Cookies and Similar Technologies-

We use "cookies" and other Web technologies to collect information and support certain features of our Site. For example, we may use these technologies to collect information about the ways visitors use our Site. This may include which pages they visit, which links they use, and how long they stay on each page. This information may be used to support the features and functionality of our Site: for example, to track the items in your shopping cart; to save you the trouble of reentering information already in our database; to prompt the settings you established on previous visits to our Site; and to personalize your experience when you use our Site.

Generally, the information we collect using these Web technologies does not identify you personally. If, however, you have created a user identity, for example, by signing up to use a password-protected area of our Site, we may link this information we collect using Web technologies to other information that identifies you personally.

If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer. You  may also delete our cookies as soon as you leave our Site. Although you are not required to accept our cookies when you visit our Site, if you set your browser to reject cookies, you will not be able to use all of the features and functionality of our Site.

From time to time, we may supplement the information you give us with information from other sources, such as information validating your address or demographic information based on your zip code.

Shipping Information-

If you ship an item to another person, we collect the personal information you provide about him or her and will use that information as we use your personal information, subject to international restrictions on the use of personal information. For example, we may add that person to our catalog mailing list. If that person does not wish to receive catalogs or other promotional communications from us, he or she may contact us using the contact information provided in the catalog, on each electronic communication or on our Site.

Employment Information-

Our Site includes a “careers” area. When you use our Site to search for job openings or submit an online employment application, we may ask you to provide certain personal information, such as your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, educational background and employment history. You may also send us your resume and other information relating to your job search or application. We use the information you submit on the careers area of our Site for recruiting, hiring, and employment purposes, but we do not use it for direct marketing purposes. More specifically, we use the information we collect through the “careers” area of our Site:

          •  to contact you regarding your application, for example, to arrange an interview;

          •  to contact you with information about other employment opportunities we believe will be of interest to you;

We may also use this information in contacting references you provide or to obtain a consumer report regarding your criminal record and other records. If you are hired by one of us, the information you provide during the recruiting process will become part of our employee records and may be used to “populate” or “pre-fill” data fields on password-protected sites used for human resource purposes, such as employee benefit administration sites. The careers area of our Site is managed by a third-party service provider.

From time to time, we may share our mailing lists with carefully selected third parties (outside the Epic Shooting Center group of operating companies) for their own marketing purposes. For example, we exchange our catalog mailing lists with other catalog companies.  Before doing so, however, we may offer you the opportunity to “opt out” or “opt in,” as required by applicable law.

Business Transactions-

We may decide, for strategic or other reasons, to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize one or more of our operating companies. A transaction of this type may involve the disclosure of personal information to prospective purchasers.

Compliance With Laws and Protection of Our Rights and the Rights of Others-

We may disclose personal information when we, in good faith, believe disclosure is appropriate to comply with the law, a court order or a subpoena.

SECURITY

Protecting Your Personal Information-

We take reasonable precautions to provide a level of security appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information we collect. For example, we use SSL encryption to protect your credit card information as it travels over the Internet.
