How do we collect and use information?
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Services, to administer your use of the Services (including your Account, if you are an Account holder), and to enable you to enjoy and easily navigate our Services.
Account & Other Information. When you create an Account, we’ll collect certain information that can be used to identify you, such as your name, email address, mailing address and phone number (“Personally Identifiable Information” or “PII”). We may also collect certain information that is not PII because it cannot be used to identify you on its own, such as your date of birth.
We also collect (i) information that you add to your member profile or otherwise transmit through our networks; (ii) billing and payment information you provide when you access our Services to purchase products and services; (iii) information you provide when you participate in our promotions, contests, surveys or events; and (iv) information, including but not limited to, when you subscribe to any of our newsletters, fill out a form, and in connection with other activities, Services, features or resources we make available on our Site.
“Web beacons” (also known as clear gifs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that may be included on our Services for several purposes, including to deliver or communicate with cookies, to track and measure the performance of our Services, to monitor how many visitors view our Services, and to monitor the effectiveness of our advertising. Unlike cookies, which are stored on the User’s hard drive, web beacons are typically embedded invisibly on web pages (or in an e-mail).
Information Related to Use of the Services. Our servers automatically record certain information about how a person uses our Services (we refer to this information as “Log Data”), including Account holders and non-Account holders (either, a “User”). Log Data may include information such as a User’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, general or specific geographic location, browser type, operating system, the web page that a User was visiting before accessing our Services, the pages or features of our Services to which a User browsed and the time spent on those pages or features, search terms, the links on our Services that a User clicked on, User Content submitted through the Services, and other usage statistics. We use this information to administer the Services and we analyze (and may engage third parties to analyze) this information to improve and enhance the Services by expanding their features and functionality and tailoring them to our Users’ needs and preferences. We may use a person’s IP address to fight spam, malware and identity theft. We also use the IP Address to generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how our Services are used.
What Information Do We Share With Third Parties?
Information Shared with Our Community. Our Services include online and physical communities where Camp David members may share and connect with others. Camp David facilitates these connections by automatically creating profiles for new members when they sign up with our community. By becoming a Camp David member, you consent to the creation and sharing of your profile, which will include your name, the name of your company as well as any additional information about yourself and your company that you provide. Certain features of the Services, accessible only to Camp David members, allow members to post comments or otherwise engage with the Camp David community. Camp David member profiles and comments are viewable by other members and Camp David employees.
Information Shared with Our Service Providers or Affiliates. We may engage third-party service providers to work with us to administer and provide the Services. These third-party service providers have access to your PII only for the purpose of performing services on our behalf. We may also share information that we collect about you, including PII, with our trusted affiliates.
Information Shared with Third Parties. We may share aggregated information and non-identifying information that we collect about you with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling, the provision of targeted advertising to you and other similar purposes.
Information Disclosed in Connection with Business Transactions. Information that we collect from our Users, including PII, is considered to be a business asset. As a result, if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy or if we are acquired as a result of a transaction such as a merger, acquisition or asset sale, your PII may be disclosed or transferred to the third-party acquirer in connection with the transaction.
Information Disclosed for Our Protection and the Protection of Others. It is our policy to protect you from having your privacy violated through abuse of the legal systems, whether by individuals, entities or government, and to contest claims that we believe to be invalid under applicable law. However, it is also our policy to cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties. Accordingly, we reserve the right to disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary: (i) to satisfy or comply with any applicable law, regulation or legal process or to respond to lawful requests, including subpoenas, warrants or court orders; (ii) to protect our property, rights and safety and the rights, property and safety of third parties or the public in general; and (iii) to prevent or stop activity we consider to be illegal or unethical.

Modifying Your Information
If you want us to modify your PII or delete your Account, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request. We’ll take steps to modify your information and/or delete your Account as soon as is practicable, but some information may remain in archived/backup copies for our records or as otherwise required by law.
Our Policy Toward Children
Our Services are not directed to children under 13 and we do not knowingly collect PII from children under 13. If we learn that we have collected PII of a child under 13, we will take steps to delete such information from our files as soon as possible. We recommend that persons over 13 but under 18 ask their parents for permission before using the Services or sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet.
