Privacy Policy for findacamp.com.au

This privacy policy describes what information is collected on findacamp.com.au, how that information is used and how we protect it.

You should read this document before registering on the site.

When you visit the site, log files record your visit and some basic information (like what browser you are using,what country you are from or how many pages you visited). I use Google analytics to give me statistics on the site usage.

For more information, see www.google.com/analytics/ or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Server_log

Note
There are ways of preventing most of the information being recorded in a log file if you are a total conspiracy theorist. For example, incognito mode in Chrome.

We ask for a username, password and email address to register.
The username and password can be totally made up, and we use as many clever nerdy tricks as we can think of to protect them.
Your email address is never made public, again, we do our best to keep it as safe as possible.
The only part that is always public is your display name. This can be anything you want, so if you are very privacy conscious, use a made up name. If you want the whole world to know who you are, use your real name, or use your screen name from other forums/websites you are on.

For those who want to do a bit of gratuitous self promotion, I have included fields to add links to your facebook page, google+ page and your own personal website. Totally up to you, just use the update profile section under account.

Note
It is always best practice to use a different password for any site you sign up with. If one websites security is a bit dodgy, and a hacker gets hold of your password, you don't want them to have your password to all your other accounts.

Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:

To personalize your experience. Your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs.

To improve our website. We continually strive to improve findacamp.com.au based on the information and feedback we receive from you.

Your information, whether public or private, will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company for any reason, without your consent.

What about spam?
I do not produce a newsletter, so, no, you will not be getting a crappy email from me once a month. If I ever do, it will be an "opt in" newsletter, so you will only get it if you request it.

The email address you provide may be used to respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions, but apart from that, it is just there so you can retrieve your password if you forget it.

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information, but at the end of the day, nothing online is really all that secure. Seriously, if you don’t want people to find out, don’t post it online.

Yes (Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (you can block these if you want) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information).

Nup. No Way. Not at all. That would be mean.

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. If the law demands it, I will release what I have to, but hey, it won’t come to that, will it?

There are many links on findacamp.com.au that lead to websites that I have nothing to do with (National Parks, google, members web pages etc.). I have no idea what their privacy policies are, so, of course, I take no responsibility for anything nasty they do. Once you leave findacamp.com.au, you’re on your own, baby.

There is also a Disclaimer / Terms and Conditions page that you should visit and have a browse of. It is pretty boring, but

If I get some time, I will add some pretty pictures to make it less boring. Maybe some ducks on a pond or something.

By using our site, you consent to our privacy policy. You also consent to the Terms and Conditions.

You also consent to supplying me with a cold beer if I meet you when camping. In return I will drink said beer and share one back with you.

Changes to the policy page will be published here, and the latest revision date will be at the top and bottom of the page. That way you can remember when you last read it and only read it again if it has changed since you last read it… ...or something like that. Hopefully I don’t have to change it though, this is really boring stuff….

Note
Seriously, this is really boring. I would rather be out camping.
