The purpose of this Policy is to inform you of Backcountry Nav practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of names, email addresses, and any other personal information collected through this website (collectively, “Personal Information”).
1. What information do we collect and what do we do with it?
When you enroll as a student or subscriber (“learner”) on our site or related courses, as part of the enrolling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name and email address.
Email marketing: we may send you emails about our site and related course(s), registration, course content, your course progress or other updates. We may also use your email to inform you about changes to the course, survey you about your usage, or collect your opinion.
Backcountry Nav uses Personal Information to provide and improve this website. Backcountry Nav will not use or share Personal Information with anyone except as described in this Policy.
backcountrynav.com does not log or share Personal Information with third parties unless required by law or applicable court or government order; to enforce or apply the App’s End User License Agreement, Disclaimer, and Limitation of Liability (the “EULA”); or if Backcountry Nav believes that disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, and safety of Backcountry Nav and others.
2. How do you get my consent?
When you provide us with personal information to become a learner on our site, make a purchase, or participate in the course, you imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.
If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.
How do I withdraw my consent?
If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by contacting us at [email protected] or mailing us at: P.O. Box 6522 Breckenridge, CO 80424
We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service https://www.backcountrynav.com/terms
If you make a purchase on our site, we use a third party payment processor such as Stripe or Paypal. Payments are encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our site and related courses and its service providers.
5. Third Party Services
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
Certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. If you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
When you click on links on our course site, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.
If you click on a third-party link, you will be directed to that site. Note that these external sites are not operated by Backcountry Nav. Therefore, Backcountry Nav strongly advises you to review the terms and conditions, as well as the privacy policies, for these websites. Backcountry Nav has no control over and assumes no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party websites or services.
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.
If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
Backcountry Nav takes reasonable measures to secure your Personal Information for accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure. The safety and security of your Personal Information also depend on you. Where Backcountry Nav has given you, or where you have chosen, a password for access to certain parts of the website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although Backcountry Nav takes reasonable efforts to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to our website. Any transmission of Personal Information is at your own risk. Backcountry Nav is not responsible for the circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the website. Backcountry Nav’s potential liability for any data security issues is limited as stated in the EULA.
