HookandBullet.com is a popular place to find fishing and hunting locations across the US and Canada. HookandBullet also offers individuals with the opportunity to post content and to share their ideas with others. In the context of pursuing that business, as further described below, we collect various information, including PII, from and about the individuals who either contribute Content to or visit our Site.
We collect any information you enter on our Site or give us in any other way (such as through an email or letter). We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, providing our services, our business operations, the maintenance of your Account (including without limitation, the preparation, distribution and filing by third party service providers of various tax and other reporting forms on our behalf), providing you with advertising and non-advertising content that we believe would be of interest to you, and communicating with you, all as described in greater detail below.
You agree to provide, maintain and update true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by our registration processes (the "Registration Data"). If you provide any information that does not satisfy this provision, or we have reasonable grounds to suspect as much, we have the right to suspend or terminate your Account and refuse any and all current or future use of any portion thereof operated by any of our corporate affiliates.
In posting to our site, you agree not to provide PII or confidential or sensitive information relating to, or controlled by third parties unless: (1) you have obtained any required permission to do so under applicable law and, (2) for PII relating to someone other than you, you have informed the person whose data will be included that their PII will be subject to this Policy and you have obtained their consent to this Policy. You must do this even if an inability to obtain permission means that you cannot submit Content or other information. By providing information to us, you represent and warrant that you have made all required disclosures and obtained all required permissions.
We may highlight content you submit on the Site such as reviews, comments, or articles.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily provide information in public areas of the Site, such as the user profile pages or forums, that information can be viewed and possibly used by others. We therefore advise visitors not to disclose contact information, including phone number, email address, street address or instant messenger address (within these public areas) that they do not wish to share. We are not responsible for PII you choose to submit in these forums or pages.
We also may use your PII to contact you regarding your Account, such as to inform you that content you submit has been accepted or rejected for posting, or to forward to you user comments about the Content you have posted. We may also email HookandBullet messages of the day, newsletters, and similar communications about the Site.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us and the Site. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses our sites. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser. We use persistent, identifying cookies to remember your information and to link your activities to you.
In addition, our cookies may house demographic and other non-personally identifiable profile information about you.
While you can take steps to warn of, block or disable cookies, if you do, the Site won't function and/or appear as we have designed it. Nonetheless, if you want to take these steps, you can do so by following the instructions associated with your particular browser.
In general, we use PII to verify, evaluate, process, respond to, communicate about, investigate and enforce our rights and Content you may submit. We tend to use non-PII for purposes such as measuring the number of visitors to sections of our Site, making our Site more useful to visitors and delivering targeted advertising and non-advertising content. We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track a user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
Subject to the terms of this Policy, We reserve the right to the following worldwide: use, access (or bar access to), process, disclose, display, share, transfer, store, sell, retain, commingle, investigate, verify, prove and otherwise deal with, voluntarily or as required by law, (collectively "Disclose") all PII, non-PII and other information. We may Disclose the foregoing internally or to third parties or through any databases for any purpose not prohibited by this Policy or, in our discretion, to help prevent or address perceived harm, damage or loss to us or others or to respond to subpoenas, search warrants, court orders, or other legal process.
We generally will retain information for as long as required, allowed or we believe it useful, but do not undertake retention obligations. We may dispose of information in our discretion without notice, subject to applicable law that specifically requires the handling or retention of information. You must keep your own, separate records.
Sites made available by HookandBullet contain links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that may collect their personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Site.
We reserve the right to send you customary business communications (i.e. acceptance/rejection notices regarding content submissions, general system and administrative messages, address confirmations, transactional information about your Account, etc.) without offering you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving them. However, we provide you with the opportunity to elect not to receive other types of communications, such as friend requests or the HookandBullet of the day messages. If you want to update your email address or stop receiving our HookandBullet of the day messages, you may opt out these messages by following the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email.
Information relating to our programs is not necessarily maintained in a retrievable form. However, you may make changes, corrections or updates to some PII provided through this Site which we use for communications with you, by visiting the "Edit My Profile" page on the HookandBullet website. We may keep a record of all information that is changed (including deletions) and Disclose it for any lawful purpose. We may determine what may be changed (e.g., if we are required to keep track of certain kinds of transactions, you may not change relevant information).
If we are required to disclose or provide notice of invasion of certain security systems, we will do so when required by posting notice on our Site or, in our discretion, by giving it to any email address provided to us by you at the time that you registered.
