When you are “Just Looking”.
We encourage you to visit our site often, even if you’re “just looking”. We are creating the most dynamic camping lifestyle destination on the web. Our content changes frequently and we’re always adding new and exciting experiences, therefore we hope you’ll visit often. When you’re “just looking”, you won’t be asked to reveal who you are or provide any Personal Information. When you visit our site we do collect usage information, but it is anonymous and is not linked to you as an individual. We use this data to better understand things like how our site is navigated, how many visitors arrive at specific pages, the length and frequency of stays at our site, the variety of searches of our site's database, the types of browsers and computer operating systems used by our visitors and the Internet Protocol addresses from which our visitors connect to our site. We use this information to improve our site content and ease of use.
Cookies and Pixel Tags.
We, or a third-party advertiser acting on our behalf, may place a "cookie" or "pixel tag" on your personal computer when you come to the site or visit a site on which we advertise. These devices are small computer files that our computer sends to your computer and that your computer sends back to us each time you make a request from our site. We use these devices to collect data to help us personalize and improve your experiences on our site. The data on your use of our site may be linked to the Personal Information you have chosen to share with us when you register. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. However, you can instruct your browser, by editing its options, to stop accepting cookies or prompt you before accepting a cookie from the sites you visit. If you decide not to accept our cookies, your ability to use some features on our site may be impaired.
In addition, we may use the services of a marketing company to help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising and how visitors use our site. To do this, we use pixel tags and cookies provided by our marketing company on this site. The information we collect helps us learn things like what kinds of customers our site attracts, which of our products most interest our customers, and what kinds of offers our customers like to see. Although our marketing company logs the information coming from our site on our behalf, we control how that data may and may not be used. If you do not want to help us learn how to improve our site, products, offers and marketing strategy, you can "opt-out" of this web-site analysis tool by clicking here.
