This privacy statement covers the site http://www.fishtactics.comTM and http://www.fishingderbyonline.com (the 'Websites') including all sub-domains.
We want the websites and our on-line services to demonstrate our commitment to its users' privacy, and therefore we want to you to know what our information and privacy practices are with respect to the following matters:
INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
Tactics Design Corporation is the sole owner of the information collected on www.fishtactics.comTM and www.fishingderbyonline.com including all sub-domains. Tactics Design Corporation collects personally identifiable information from our users at several different points on our Websites. If you want to register as a member of the FishTactics Network Websites, we ask you for a unique username, your email address, and your location of residence. This information allows us to ensure that you are able to access and use our on-line services and for us to contact you regarding these service offerings. If you wish to receive an email newsletter we only request a valid email address be given.
In order for users to register for the Websites, the user must choose an unique username that they will log into the Websites with. An email address is required for registration so that a randomly generated password can be sent to the new user.
We collect and use the information to process and fill your orders, to facilitate the services requested by the user, to improve the services and features of the Websites, to resolve disputes, to troubleshoot problems and enforce this privacy statement.
Our website's traffic analyzer utility tracks information regarding the URL that the user came from (whether from our site or not), what browser is being used and the user's IP address. However this information is not linked to personally identifiable information and remains anonymous in our log files.
We use location based demographic information to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to improve our content and product offerings, and to customize our site's content, layout and services to better meet the needs of our users. We collect information to generate statistics and aggregate reports for internal use only. These statistics and aggregate reports will not contain any personally identifiable information. Personal identity is kept anonymous.
Tactics Design Corporation does not sell or rent any information collected from users to other third parties.
We create user accounts so that our users may participate in forums or other Web site services. We collect user specific information from our users for providing information to other users through the member query and view features of our database.
The www.fishtactics.comTM site has specific sections available to all users and other specific sections that may be accessed by members only.
Throughout the websites, the user is identified by their username. Other FishTactics Network registered members will be able to see any of another user's 'Profile' information except for email addresses. Email addresses will remain private unless otherwise specified by the user. The user may also choose to hide some of their personal information from the community by updating some of their user preferences. If the user selects his/her email address as their username, the user will disclose their email address to other users and third parties. As a result, other users or third parties may send the user unsolicited email and be able to personally identify your public activities on our site. We do not use robot exclusion hardware and therefore, others may illegally attempt to automatically collect a user's email address from our site. We also provide a number of ways to allow other users to find out more about you and your site activities, such as our 'Browse Members function'.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while a user is on our site. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. For the session ID cookie, once users close the browser, the cookie simply terminates. A persistent cookie is a small text file stored on the user's hard drive for an extended period of time. Persistent cookies can be removed by following Internet browser help file directions.
Third Party Advertising
Third Party advertising exists on the Web site, however we do not aggregate (gather up data across all user accounts) information and provide information in a non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers and other third party for promotional purposes.
Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information. We employ a traffic analyzer utility called Google Analytics to gather website traffic statistics.
COMMUNICATIONS FROM THE SITES
We send all new members a welcoming email including a random password to log on to their account on the Websites. Members must first activate their account by clicking a special link in the email before login can occur.
Dockside Terminal Catch Submission
If users provide an email address or their FishTactics network username when submitting a catch record on a Dockside Terminal, the Websites will send them an email with a specific link to the where their catch record is located.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we only ask for a contact email address. Out of respect for our users privacy we provide a way to opt-out of these communications.
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance we might send users an email. Generally, users may not opt-out of these communications, though they can deactivate their account. However, these communications are not promotional in nature.
We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account we reply via email or phone, in accordance with the users wishes.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Web sites.
