What Information is Collected?

The SectionHiker.com web site may collect two types of information about you: Personally Identifiable Information and Aggregate Information that is anonymous (such as your IP address – a number used to identify your computer when you are on the Internet – or the type of browser you are using).

Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are and can be used to identify, contact or locate you (such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address). You can visit the SectionHiker.com web site without telling us who you are and without revealing any information about yourself. You may be required to register or otherwise voluntarily provide Personally Identifiable Information to have access to some features of the SectionHiker.com web site. You always may choose not to provide the Personally Identifiable Information, but this may lead to decreased functionality of the SectionHiker.com web site for you and our inability to provide you with certain products or services. We also may request you to voluntarily provide Personally Identifiable Information that is not required to access features of our site. This information enables us to make general improvements to the SectionHiker.com web site and better serve your specific interests.

The SectionHiker.com web site may transparently collect Aggregate Information through the use of cookies or by other means. We use this information to assess general usage patterns, administer and make improvements to SectionHiker.com web site and collect demographic information useful in some way to SectionHiker.com and our business partners. We hope that by using Aggregate Information, we can update the SectionHiker.com web site to make it more useful to you and other users. We, and our business partners, reserve the right to use, maintain, update, disclose and/or sell Aggregate Information.
