Privacy Policy

TrailBliss respects your privacy and will attempt to handle that personal information about visitors is handled responsibly. We do not sell, trade, or share names, contact information, or purchasing data of our members. By visiting the TrailBliss website, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.


 

Browsing Our Website

You can browse www.trailbliss.org, subject to our website Terms of Service, without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information. The only information we collect from a typical ordinary website visit (one that does not involve a form submission) is your IP address, the pages you view, and the date and time you view them. We use this information to measure site activity in order to improve the usefulness of our website to our visitors.

 

Collection of Personally Identifiable Information

When a visitor asks us to provide information or a service, we request information that enables us to respond to the visitor. This information could include contact information (such as name, mailing address, and email address) and, if applicable, payment, or billing information.

 

TrailBliss may gather email addresses and other personally identifiable data about visitors when such data is voluntarily submitted to www.trailbliss.org. For example, our site uses submission forms for participants to sign up for hiking events, to become a volunteer, or sign up as a subscriber. You have access to all the information that you give to The Mountaineers via your profile page. Email addresses from the submission form will be used only for the purpose of contacting you about the particular event, or other interaction. TrailBliss cannot insure against invasion by security breakers of any manner.

 

TrailBliss makes every effort to ensure the secure collection and transmission of sensitive user information using industry-accepted data collection and encryption methodologies.

 

TrailBliss does not sell, trade, or otherwise disclose individual user information outside our organization. 

Policies for Children Under 18

Safeguarding the personal information of children is extremely important to us. We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate in the interactive activities offered on the site. No information should be submitted to or posted on the TrailBliss website by children under 18 years of age without the consent of their parent or guardian. We do not allow children under 18 years of age to be Trails subscribers. 

 

Use of Information by Leaders

Leaders will have access to a limited amount of personal information; i.e., your name, phone number, email address, emergency contact, etc. By virtue of signing up for a hike, you grant such hike leaders access to your personal information for the sole purpose of leading the trip. Leaders may not use this website to offer solicitations, or for any other personal use.

Cookies

 

Cookies are pieces of information generated by a Web server and stored in the user's computer, ready for future access. Cookies are embedded in the HTML information flowing back and forth between your computer and our servers. Cookies were implemented to allow user-side customization of Web information. For example, cookies will be used to remember your login name. We safeguard this information and do not share it with others for any reason. Like most websites, TrailBliss may place a cookie in the browser files of a visitor's computer. If visitors decline to accept cookies, they may still use our site, but some portions of our site may be inaccessible.

Our site contains links to other sites. Please remember that our privacy policy does not apply to other sites and that we cannot be responsible for their privacy policies.
