Intermedia Outdoors Privacy Policy

InterMedia Outdoors (“IMO”) and its family of consumer publications are strongly committed to protecting your privacy and providing a safe online and digital experience for all of our users and subscribers while offering the highest quality publications and services to them. Because we gather certain types of information about and from users and subscribers so that we can fulfill your requests and better serve your needs, you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the collection and use of this information. This Privacy Policy discloses what information we gather, how we use it, how to correct or change it, and what steps we take to safeguard personal information provided to us both online and offline.

Your use of an IMO website or digital application constitutes your agreement with the terms of our Privacy Policy:

What Information Do We Collect About You?

You can visit our websites, install and use our digital apps, read articles and other materials, and check on offerings without giving us any “personal information” (defined below). So that we can provide our users and subscribers with the most efficient and enhanced, personalized service, we may request information about you in certain circumstances, and collect certain information automatically. We also use contact lists and other information we may obtain from third parties. We may also collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our web pages or use our applications, such as the type of browser and operating system you are using, your IP address, your device identifiers, your Internet or wireless service provider, and location-based information.

To inquire about personal information that we have collected about you, or how to correct factual errors in such information, please email us by clicking here

Personal Information

By "personal information" we mean information that identifies you individually, such as names, mailing addresses, email addresses, gender, and credit or debit card information.

We collect from you personal information when you subscribe to one of our magazines, place an order, purchase an app, or register at one of our websites. Website visitors or app purchasers may register to receive one of our email services, respond to a survey, or enter online contests and sweepstakes. Registration may be required to participate in online forums or committees at our websites, or to take advantage of special offers through our websites or apps.

If you wish to subscribe to one of our publications, purchase an app, or place an order for products or services, you must generally establish a credit card account with us or our vendors. In addition to the customary information needed to fill your order (full name, email address, physical address, ship-to name and address, gift information, etc.), subscriptions, app purchases, and orders necessitate collection of your credit card number, credit card expiration date, and the credit card security code. Electronic order acknowledgments are sent when a subscription or order is placed online or through an app.

How Do We Use Collected Information?

We use information you provide to fulfill your requests, improve our publications, products and services, and operate our business. For example, we use personal information so that we may display or send custom, personalized content to our website visitors and to send newsletters, mail, emails, features, promotional material, surveys and other updates, information or offers to our users and subscribers. A user may, at any time, opt out of receiving promotional offers by mail, telephone or email by clicking here . We also use collected information to evaluate and administer our products and services, fulfill customer requests (e.g., subscription and other orders), respond to any problems that may arise, such as magazine delivery failures, problems with digital applications, difficulties in navigating our sites or accessing certain features, as well as to gauge user trends to determine what products and services are most popular with users, and to put you in touch with trusted fulfillment partners who can provide services that we cannot.

We may produce reports for advertisers, sponsors and vendors containing anonymous, aggregate information about our users and subscribers, such as demographic, age and online usage information. This allows us to provide content and offers that are most relevant to our subscribers and users, and to work more closely with advertisers.

How Do We Share Personal Information?

Personal information is available to InterMedia, including its brands and affiliates, and its or their technical and fulfillment agents and consultants who make this website and our publications, products and services available to you. Anonymous information is available to our advertisers, sponsors and promotional and business partners. We share your personal information with third parties only as described below.

IMO and Its Agents. IMO may use both anonymous, aggregate demographic data and any personal information you provide for internal marketing or other business purposes, including sending you notices of subscription renewal deadlines, new publications, services or products we offer likely to be of interest, and filling subscription and other orders. To facilitate subscriptions and orders, IMO will cache your order information, and create an authorization for payment. There are many companies who may be required to assist IMO in making its publications, products, websites, and digital apps available to you. Web host firms, technical and database consultants, digital app developers, advertising agencies, and fulfillment firms, including firms assisting us in offering contests and promotions, may have access to personally identifiable information in the course of making our products and services available. All companies working with IMO must comply with our information collection, use and disclosure policies, and are not permitted to sell your information to third parties or to use it except as authorized by us and you, or as permitted or required by law.

Participating Vendors.Some of our sites and digital apps offer opportunities to make purchases from special participating vendors. On sites with online purchase opportunities for products and merchandise, we will also give participating vendors ordering information and merchant bank authorization information. Any time you order from a participating vendor, that vendor will automatically have all the information related to the order. Participating vendors may use that information to advise you directly of other products and offerings that they provide. IMO is not responsible for their privacy policies, and urges you to inquire about their information practices. In addition, vendors may receive the same anonymous, aggregate data that our advertisers do.

Credit Card Companies.As in any transaction, your credit card company will have all relevant information about the name of the vendor, item(s) purchased, and date and total cost. IMO will not otherwise provide any personal data to your credit card company.

Advertisers, Sponsors, and Promotional and Business Partners.We share anonymous, aggregate demographic information (such as gender, age, income, hobbies, interests, etc.), and anonymous information obtained from cookies and similar technologies, with our advertisers, sponsors, promotional and business partners, and with participating vendors at sites offering online sales opportunities. We do not provide personally identifiable information to any of these third parties in providing these reports.

Offline and online contact information is handled differently. As is customary in the publications business, offline contact information (i.e., your name and mailing address) is shared with third parties who may send you offers or information about their products or services. You must opt-out if you do not wish for us to share such offline contact information with third parties, or if you do not wish to receive promotions from us by mail.

We may extend email offers to you on behalf of our business partners about their products or services, but only if you have indicated that you would like to receive such offers. Although IMO may receive a fee from our business partners for this service, IMO sends those offers on behalf of the business partner, and does not share your email address with them. As our business partners may keep and use your information whether or not you purchase their products or use their services, your personal information will be subject to their privacy policies, and you should contact them directly for more information about their specific privacy and opt-out policies. Of course, you may opt-out of receiving these offers through IMO at any time.

At our websites, and also through digital apps, visitors will also have opportunities to sign up directly with certain advertisers and sponsors to enter contests or sweepstakes, receive email updates, or to receive information directly from them. Third party vendors and advertisers will also use technical and other consultants. We urge visitors to carefully review the privacy policies of these firms. IMO is not responsible for the privacy policies and procedures of any third party.

Public Postings. You should be aware that if you voluntarily disclose information, personal or otherwise, online in any community area (whether through IMO's websites or any other service available online), that information can be collected and used by others. For example, if you use chat, forums, bulletin boards or message boards, or if you post personal information online (such as your email address, photograph, etc.), you may receive unsolicited messages from others. IMO has no control over this use of your personal information.

Important Note

We reserve the right to use or disclose any information without notice or consent as compelled by applicable law, regulation or legal requirement; to conduct investigations of consumer complaints or possible breaches of law; to protect the integrity of our websites, our digital apps, and our property and assure adherence to our terms of use; to protect the safety of our visitors or others; and to fulfill your requests.

How Do We Use Cookies?

IMO may use “cookies” in connection with operation of its websites. Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored on your computer by the IMO website server. Cookies are used for record-keeping purposes—the stored information can be retrieved by the IMO website server when you return to the website.

Cookies allow us to personalize or regulate the use of our websites, and also permit us to automate the access and data-entry functions of the site (e.g., login information), to store on-line ordering information for purchases you may make while visiting the site, and to tailor the appearance or presentation of the site to your preferences or interests. In general, we do not use cookies to track the navigational habits of identified users without the user’s consent.

The use of cookies is common in the industry, and they are used at most major websites. Cookies will not be used to pass any information from your computer except the specific information placed into the cookie from one participating IMO website when the cookie is retrieved by another participating IMO website.

How Do We Use Web Beacons?

We use Web beacon technologies throughout our sites in order to assess traffic patterns, determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns, determine unique visitor counts and create an improved user experience throughout our sites.  Web beacons are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, which are commonly used in the industry and on many major websites. We also may include Web beacons in promotional email messages or electronic newsletters in order to determine the effectiveness of those campaigns.

When a user accesses a page or email containing a “Web beacon,” notice of that access is generated and sent to us. Because Web beacons work in conjunction with cookies, users who do not want this information considered in association with anonymous cookie information should set their browsers to turn off cookies. (When users turn off cookies, Web beacon technologies will still detect users visits anonymously, but this information cannot be associated with other user information and is disregarded).

What About Third Party Advertisers?

Some of the banner ads displayed in our websites and digital apps are provided by outside companies. These ads may use cookies and/or Web beacons. Unlike cookies and Web beacons used by IMO in content it controls at its websites, cookies or Web beacons received with banner ads are collected by our advertisers and we do not have access to this information. We use reputable third parties to serve some or all of the advertisements that are placed within our sites and they may use information about your visits to our sites and other sites to assist in serving advertisements to you. They may share information with their clients such as date/time of the banner ad shown, the specific ad shown, the IP address, etc.

IMO websites and digital apps will not use or transfer personally identifiable information provided to us in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you with an opportunity to opt out of these unrelated uses.

Security Of Your Personal Information

We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security and correctly use the information we collect. No system can be completely secure, however, and we do not guarantee that unauthorized disclosures and access will not happen.

Special Note For Parents

The site you are visiting is one of the IMO general audience sites and is not intended for use by children, and we do not operate any websites or digital apps that are intended for use by children.

Changes In Corporate Structure

In developing our business, we might sell certain assets, or the company, or parts of it, may be sold, merged or otherwise transferred. In such transactions, user information, whether personally identifiable or otherwise, may be one of the transferred assets.

Your California Privacy Rights

Under California’s “Shine the Light” law, Civil Code Section 1798.83, California residents are afforded expanded rights to information about shared personal information, or are required to have the free ability to opt-in or opt-out of such sharing.

If you have any questions about your ability to opt-out of information sharing by us, please see “How Can You Control Your Personal Information” (above).
