Why We Ask You to Register
  We ask you to register and we collect voluntary information because it helps us better deliver service to you. The main legal reason to collect your information has to do with email accountability. You may opt not to provide personal data, however, your services may be limited as a result of that decision.



What Information We Collect
  We only collect information you voluntarily supply us. We stress parental involvement and permission before you supply information to eCamp. We explain in clear language easily understood by a child why any information is being requested and how it will be used. We only ask for essential information that helps us learn more about the people using our products and to protect us legally.

eCamp has several rules regarding usage for children of different ages; children ages 13-17 require parental consent. Children 12 and under require written parental consent to use the eCamp site. We will send an e-mail to the parents of members who are know to be under 13 that must be authorized and returned for the child to contribute to any interactive component of the eCamp network including: email, chat rooms, bulletin boards, and more.



Why We Ask For E-mail Addresses
  Your e-mail address is required so that we can hold users accountable for their actions (for example in chat rooms and on message boards) and contact them without compromising their physical location. We may use your email address to communicate with you otherwise. If would prefer not to receive information from eCamp, you may 'opt out' of email announcements.

If you are under 13 years old, we require your parent or guardian's email address so that we may notify them of your use of the eCamp network and request their permission in writing in compliance with COPPA laws.





You Can Update Your Registration Information
  Registered users are welcome to view, change or delete their registration information at any time. Users will also be able to change their preferences on the eCamp site regarding mailings, and protection of user profile information.


Cookies
  Cookies are pieces of information that a Web site transfers to an individual's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make Web-surfing easier for you by saving your preferences while you're at our site. We never save passwords or credit card information in cookies. The use of cookies is an industry standard, you'll find them at most major Web sites.

By showing how and when guests use a site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our users needs.

eCamp uses cookies for two primary uses. First, we use them to specify unique preferences. Secondly, we use cookies to track user trends and patterns. This helps us better understand and improve areas of the eCamp web site that our users find valuable. While both of these activities depend on the use of a "cookie," visitors to eCamp always have the option of disabling cookies in their browser preferences.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, note that some parts of eCamp will not function properly or may be considerably slower if you refuse cookies.

You may occasionally get cookies from our business partners (if you click on them). eCamp does not control these cookies. The use of cookies sent by third-party servers is standard in the Internet industry



Message To Parents
  eCamp urges children to check with parents before giving out any personal information. We urge you to closely monitor your children's Internet activities and to become educated about Internet practices affecting children, and to educate us by telling us what is important to you in this area. If you have questions or concerns you can send an e-mail message to: feedback@ecamp.net.



Extended Legal Notices

eCamp, Inc. will not disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent. eCamp may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) eCamp's rights or property, other eCamp users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. eCamp may disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

eCamp shares aggregate information about our users with advertisers, business partners, sponsors and other third parties. For example, we will say eCamp's audience is x percent females and y percent males. This data is used to customize content and advertising to deliver a better experience for our users.

eCamp may ask you for personal information such as your name, email address, and birth date. eCamp needs to collect this information for fulfilling prizes, tracking/verifying compliance with eCamp policies as well as federal, state and local laws and/or for editorial and feedback solicitation purposes.

In case you change your mind or some personal information may change, we provide a way to correct, update or remove the personal data you give us. You can do this on preferences page or by contacting Customer Support at: support@ecamp.net.

OPTING-OUT

Information provided at the time of Registration or submission from a guest who is 13 years of age or over may be used for marketing and promotional purposes by eCamp and our affiliates or companies that have been prescreened by eCamp. To keep you in control of your personal information and the communications directed to you, we allow you to opt-out of the following services: sharing your eCamp email address in our user directory and receiving communications from eCamp about new features or services. If a user objects to such use for any reason, he/she may stop that use by e-mailing a request to support@ecamp.net or by modifying his/her user information online or by following the directions in the footer of any mail piece sent by eCamp.

POLICIES FOR INDIVIDUALS UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE

eCamp encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate in the activities offered on the sites. No information should be submitted to or posted eCamp by guests under 13 years of age without the consent of their parent or guardian.

eCamp does not provide any personally identifying information to any third party for any purpose whatsoever from our guests under 13 years of age. All registrants receive an e-mail confirming their Registration. In addition, when a guest under 13 registers, he/she is required to provide the e-mail address of his/her parent or guardian and that parent or guardian receives an e-mail alerting them to that Registration. Since all of eCamp's activities are monitored, registered guests under 13 years of age may participate in such activities upon registration, unless their parent or guardian asks that their registration be invalidated. In order for the potential member to use eCamp interactive services (such as e-mail), the parent or guardian listed must validate the account, as described in the e-mail. This process is in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) of 1998.

Although guests under 13 years of age may be allowed to participate in some contests and promotions, if such a guest wins, notification is sent to the parents or guardians identified in the initial registration process. Publication of contest winners' names, ages, or images for individuals under 13 requires parental or guardian consent.

POLICIES FOR INDIVIDUALS 13 TO 17 YEARS OF AGE

These members are required to have parental consent prior to registering for an eCamp account. By registering for eCamp you are agreeing to the Terms & Conditions and Privacy Statement and thereby indicating that parental consent has been granted.

USE OF IP ADDRESSES

An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're on the Web.

eCamp collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers, to report abusive users and to audit the use of our site. When guests request pages from eCamp, our servers log the guests' IP addresses. We will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our eCamp rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers or others.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES

Users should be aware that when you are on eCamp you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from eCamp that take you outside our service. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors and partners that may use the eCamp logo as part of a co-branding agreement. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data or solicit personal information.

In an effort to help children identify advertisements, eCamp explicitly identifies all advertisements on our site.

Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information that information can be collected and used by people you don't know. eCamp strives to protect its user's personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.

eCamp's policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond eCamp's control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.

SECURITY

Your eCamp password is protected so that only you can access it and view the user information relevant to the account. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. eCamp will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or email. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and any account information.

Remember to log out of your eCamp account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if your computer is accessible to others or if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library.
