1. Types of Information We Collect
Nantahala Outdoor Center may collect two types of information from users of our Sites and Services: “Personal Information” which is information that you voluntarily provide that can be used to identify you (such as name or e-mail address, etc.) and “Aggregate Information” which is information that cannot be used to identify you (such as frequency of visits to the Site, browser type, etc.)
1.1. Personal Information Collected

1.1.3. Collection of Personal Information by Third Parties:
1.1.5. For example, it is possible that your payment information, such as credit card or debit card information, may be collected and stored by third party payment vendors, should you choose to provide such a payment method to a third party through your use of the Site or Services.

1.2.1. Aggregate Information is information that does not identify you.

1.2.8. Interest-Based Advertising:
1.2.9. We may also participate in interest-based advertising using similar technology. This means that you may see advertising on our Sites tailored to how you browse or shop, or you may see advertising for Nantahala Outdoor Center and its properties on other websites based on your browsing behavior across websites. Some websites where we may advertise belong to ad networks that use your web browsing history to choose which ads to display on their network websites; these ads include advertising for Nantahala Outdoor Center and its Sites, but no Personal Information about you is shared with those third party ad networks. Other websites where you see our ads, such as Facebook, may use interest preferences that you have chosen on those sites, as well as registration and other information about you, to choose which ads to display to you. Some internet browsers, websites such as Facebook, and mobile devices offer opt-outs for interest-based advertising. Please refer to the website that you are visiting, your browser and/or your device settings for additional information.
1.2.10. You can opt-out of receiving interest-based ads from third parties who are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or who follow the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising by visiting the opt-out pages on the NAI website (http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/) and DAA website (http://www.aboutads.info/choices/).

These third party service providers are not authorized to retain, share, store or use the Personal Information for any purposes other than to provide the services they have been hired to provide. Nantahala Outdoor Center does not sell, trade, or otherwise share Personal Information with third parties for the marketing purposes of the third party.
