Our Privacy Policy
AmmoGuide.com believes you have a right to your privacy. AmmoGuide.com has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this Web site.

General
Our site's registration form requires users to give us valid and accurate contact information (like your name and email address). The customer's contact information is used to contact the customer when necessary. Contact information is not shared with third parties, except in special cases as outlined below.

When you post on the AmmoGuide Interactive forum, or send a Personal Message via the AGI Personal messaging System, only your username (that which you use to login) is made visible to other website subscribers. Your name and email information is never disclosed. The only situation that it could be disclosed is if it is manually entered into a forum or personal message, which AmmoGuide.com staff will not do.

To facilitate the investigation of fraud or illegal activity we may turn information over to bona-fide law enforcement agencies.

If you incur fees through the use of this site we use your contact information and financial information for billing purposes. If collection must be pursued, your contact and financial information may be shared with collection agents and/or credit reporting agencies. Other than to collect debts we do not share your financial information with any third party.

We do not do unsolicited mailings for third parties. Email messages are generated by AmmoGuide.com for one of three reasons:

  1. Upon site initial launch to inform waiting cutomers of the availability of the site.

  2. As a direct result of the user's actions (such as requesting the account password be emailed to the email address on file),

  3. As necessary to inform you of issues regarding your account as well as changes and enhancements to the website, be they esthetic, functional or administrative in nature. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.
We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site. Your IP address is used to gather broad demographic information, and to track usage patterns in the AmmoGuide.com site. AmmoGuide.com does not use cookies.

This site contains links to other sites. AmmoGuide.com is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites.

Banner Advertising
AmmoGuide.com does not currently serve advertising banners, but may consider doing so in the future.

Public Forums
This site makes a forum, or message board available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information (available to demo account visitors) and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information. (AmmoGuide.com will not disclose your personal information.) We strongly recommend that you do not post your email address or other personal information in our forums because this information is publicly available for anyone to see and unscrupulous third parties may use this information to form 'spam' lists or may otherwise misuse this information.

Security
This site has substantial security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Our database is operated under strong security procedures to prevent access by unauthorized persons. All financial transactions are encrypted at the highest level possible, and our credit card processing and data storage techniques meet or exceed the requirements of American Express, Discover, VISA, and MasterCard.

Choice / Opt-out
This site sends three types of email communications:

  1. Administrative messages related to account activity or changes - Messages related to account activity are generated as a result of status changes regarding your account. These notifications can include renewal notifications, security notices, change in the policies and/or operation of our site and other notifications related to your account. You cannot opt out of receiving notifications related to account activity, however, if you fail to renew your membership, no messages will be directed to the email address associated with that account. These notices are normally sent on an extremely infrequent basis.

  2. Notifications of new features and enhancements - Notifications of new features and enhancements are sent as they become available for the set of services you are configured to receive. You may opt out of these notifications by deselecting the 'Notify me of AmmoGuide news' in your account profile.

  3. As a direct result of the user's actions - Messages sent as a direct result of the user's actions (i.e., requesting a forgotten password via email) are always sent regardless of the customer's profile settings.
You can access your account profile settings at any time from your 'myAmmoGuide' screen, by clicking 'Edit myAmmoGuide profile' in the 'Your myAmmoGuide account at a glance' box at the top-right of the page.
