Collecting and using personal information
By "personal information" we mean information that is unique to
an individual, such as a name, address, or telephone number. From time to
time, we may request personal information from you at our site in order to
give you access to requested products or services. Different
elements of this information are used by PrairieOutdoors.com to validate
your registration and to facilitate your interaction with our site.
When you visit our site, we also collect certain information that does
not identify you personally, but provides us with "usage data,"
such as the number of visitors we receive, what pages are visited most
often, and what browser and domain name you are using. This data helps us
to continuously improve the usefulness of the services we provide.
Should you send us e-mail, we may share your communications with our
employees or agents most capable of addressing your questions and
concerns. We will retain your communication until we have done our best to
provide you with a complete and satisfactory response and then we will
either discard it or, in some cases, archive it.

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
Like most commercial Websites, we may also use what is known as
"cookie" technology. A cookie is a nonexecutable element of data
that a Website can send to your browser when you link to that site.
PrairieOutdoors.com will assign a cookie upon logging in to some of our

simple procedure that will enable you to control receipt of cookies by
notifying you when a Website is about to deposit one. PrairieOutdoors.com
does not engage in the practice known as profiling, nor does it engage the
services of any companies that do.

controlled by PrairieOutdoors.com, that we think might be of interest to

practices used by, other site owners.
When you purchase products from the GearShop, we use a secure server
implementing the secure sockets layer (SSL) protocol to interact with you
when you provide personal information during the purchase and payment
processes. This state of the art technology encrypts your information so
that a third party cannot read the information while in transit.
Furthermore, all the customer data we collect is stored off-line and
protected against unauthorized access.
