NON-PERSONAL DATA COLLECTED
 
Cookies
A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. TAC uses cookies to help TAC identify and track visitors, their usage of TAC website, and their website access preferences. TAC visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using The Adventure Cowboy’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of The Adventure Cowboy’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.
 
Analytics
TAC uses Google Analytics to collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. TAC may display this aggregate anonymous information publicly or provide it to others. TAC does not collect personally identifying information via analytics.
 
Media
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
 
POTENTIALLY PERSONALLY IDENTIFYING DATA
 
TAC requires a name and email address to manage user-initiated communications including, but not limited to, contact forms, comments, feedback, registration, media or content posting, opt-ins for newsletters. Besides name and email address, Internet Protocol (IP) addresses are collected. You may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies when conducting the aforementioned activities. These are for your convenience so you do not have to fill in your details again. These cookies will last for one month. IP addresses may be used as a security measure to assist in the prevention of account abuse by alerting to possible unauthorized access.
 
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
 
PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED
 
Those who engage in transactions with TAC are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, TAC collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with TAC. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country. By using The Adventure Cowboy’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
 
WHO WE SHARE YOUR DATA WITH
 
TAC will not disclose, rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, TAC discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when TAC believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of TAC, third parties or the public at large.
 
If you are a registered user of a TAC website and have supplied your email address, TAC may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with TAC and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. TAC takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
 
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. For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information. Passwords can not be retrieved by site administrators. Certain transaction records may be retained for up to ten years. Retained records do NOT include critical or sensitive personal information such as credit cards, bank accounts or other highly sensitive information for which we use 3rd party PCI compliant gateway services only.
 
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR DATA
 
Understanding that no online data is 100% secure, we take security very seriously with several layers that are constantly updated. #1 – TAC does not retain any highly sensitive or critical data on our website server. #2 – We protect our website with firewalls and security software as well as SSL. #3 – In addition to security alert notifications, we manually monitor website activity to detect unusual or suspicious traffic. #4 – We follow industry recommended security protocols, and, #5 – We require strong passwords for every registered user. In the event of a data breach, all users would be notified, and all passwords nullified, requiring user re-set.
 
WHAT RIGHTS YOU HAVE OVER YOUR DATA
 
If you have an account on this site, or have left non-spam 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. Requests for information removal and account deletion can be emailed to: no-ruby@mail.com
 
MISCELLANEOUS DATA COLLECTION
 
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.
These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
 
Business Transfers
If TAC, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that TAC 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 TAC may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
 
Ads
Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by TAC and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Although most changes are likely to be minor, TAC may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in The Adventure Cowboy’s sole discretion.
