What Information Does Adventure Pads Collect?


Adventurepads.com will collect personal information from our users for different purposes. Information gathered online can be identified as either anonymous or identifiable. Anonymous information is information that cannot be traced back to the individual. Identifiable information is information that is specific to the individual so that we can deliver the right communications and services to the individual. The following lists the many ways in which we collect personal information from our users and the type of information collected:

To participate in blogs or forums on the site, a user has to create his/her profile by completing a questionnaire online. Through the completion of the questionnaire by a user we collect the following information: (i) full name; (ii) e-mail address; (iv) user name; (v) password; and (v) screen name or (vi) login name from another social media site. The provision of this personal information is mandatory and if you choose not to submit the requested information we will not be able to provide you with the ability to participate in a forum or blog offered on the Web site. The screen name will be viewable by any Web site visitor viewing the forum or blog for the life of the Web site.

Site users may send inquiries to property managers/owners via clickable links on Site listings. If you choose to send an inquiry through these links, your personal information, including your e-mail address and any other information you supply, will be visible to the property owner/manager in question so that they might reply directly to you. If you call the property owner/manager, you may be asked to leave a return telephone number. Do not share information in the e-mail or phone call that you are not prepared to allow them to have, including, but not limited to, credit card and bank account information. These online inquiries are both sent to the individual property owner/manager you selected and retained by us. The resulting inquiry is available for review only by the property owner/manager to whom they were initially addressed and to our customer service employees, who may be asked by property owners/managers for their past inquiry information. While the content of these inquiries is not shared with any other party, the Site may, from time to time, use third party e-mail servers to send and track receipt of the inquiry e-mails, and analyze the pattern of inquiry usage reported by these third party tracking systems; [the resulting information is used and stored only in an anonymous form).

To advertise on the Adventure Pads Web site, the following information is required: (i) company name; (ii) contact name; (iii) address;  (iv) email address;  (v) telephone number; (vi) payment information such as credit card or banking information, dependant upon method of payment. Advertising transactions will be processed through the Adventure Pads PayPal account. The provision of this information is mandatory for those  who want to become advertisers.

To secure and book a vacation rental, property owners/managers may utilize PayPal for processing of the transaction. Information collected in this manner is not seen by any members or employees of Caddpros. The transaction is strictly between the property owner/manager and the renter. For more information on how PayPal works, see www.paypal.com.

If you desire, you may participate in Adventure Pads online surveys. If you choose to participate, we will collect anonymous information about your travel experience, likes, dislikes, habits and demographic information. These surveys are developed in order for us to understand what types of products and services are most effective for our customers and to find the best ways to advertise to reach new customers. Your participation in our online surveys is entirely voluntary. Caddpros may provide gifts to those individuals who participate in surveys, and will request a mailing address to ship the gift. Caddpros will not use the mailing address or personal information for any purpose other than mailing the gift. You will be given the option to opt out of receiving further emails from Adventurepads.com, including but not limited to marketing emails, advertisements, newsletters and bulletins.

Our Web site provides you with the opportunity to email a web page to another person. For this feature to work, we may need to collect your name and email address and the name and email address of those to whom you send the web page.

SERVER LOG FILES:

As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and click stream data.

We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.

Who Processes Your Personal Data?

Your personal data (also referred to as personal information) - that is, data that identifies you, or from which you are identifiable - will be collected, processed, stored and used by us, associates and agents of Caddpros. Personal data contributed by or collected from users may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which we or our agents maintain facilities, and by using our site, you acknowledge and agree that you may be transferring your personal data outside of the country in which you have contributed it, and that you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to those that apply in your country. However, if we transfer your personal data outside of your country in this way, we will take steps to ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected in compliance with applicable data protection law and this Privacy Policy.
