Privacy and Security Notice
We Protect Your Privacy
Personal information is information about a specific person, including the person's name, address, telephone number, email address, credit card number, birth date, information about the person's activities and purchases.
The Information We Gather
Whenever you purchase products from Campman, become a registered shopper, participate in our gift registry or request a catalog, we collect and store your personal and transactional information in our customer database. This information is generally used to process your transactions and respond to your requests. You may also receive periodic printed or e-mail communications from us about new products and services, discounts, special promotions or upcoming events.
Aggregate Data and Information Usage
In addition to personal information, we collect and store information about the products purchased by channel and the pages viewed by all of our website visitors. We then use this data in aggregate form to identify overall customer behavior patterns. Our goal in using this information is to improve your experience at Campman by being more responsive to the needs and preferences of our customers.
Our Web servers automatically collect information about each visitor who requests Campman.com web pages, including your computer's internet protocol (IP) address. This IP address allows us to identify your computer on the internet so that the Web content you request from us can be sent to you.
We provide portions of this aggregate site behavior information to vendors, consultants, potential advertisers or news agencies. We typically do this in order to demonstrate the amount of interest in Campman and to plan for product and service improvements.
Voluntary Registered Shopper Information
Your Campman online account is an optional service provided on Campman's websites. You do not have to register for an online account in order to shop online with us. However, registering allows us to speed up the shopping process for you and lets us offer you access to special features and promotions.
Click-Stream Data (and Cookie Technology)
We use this information to process your order and to make sure that it is delivered to you. Aggregated order information is also used to track and analyze overall shopping trends, which allows Campman to improve product offerings and services to its members and customers.
The only personal information our cookie can contain is information that you supply yourself. Our cookies cannot read data from other parts of your computer.
Click-stream data is information that describes the page-by-page paths you take as you browse through our websites. Campman partners with Coremetrics, a service provider, to help us gather and analyze information about your browsing or purchase behavior on our website. The role of Coremetrics is to help us conduct our business and deliver the most relevant products and services to our customers. We may use click-stream data in the aggregate to provide improved services to groups of shoppers who behave similarly. We may also use this data on an individual basis to improve your specific shopping experience. For example, if during a visit to Campman.com you read an online article about how to choose the right tent, we may during a subsequent visit present you with a how-to article on cleaning your tent or point you to a new product related to tent repair.
When you provide Campman with your email address you will receive email newsletters. You may choose at any time to discontinue receiving Campman newsletters by opting out or unsubscribing.
We often state that "Campman will not share your e-mail address." That statement is our promise to you that we will not rent, sell, or give your e-mail address to any other organization for the purposes of marketing or solicitation.
However, in order to deliver our e-mail newsletters Campman will need to supply your e-mail address to specific service providers who deliver e-mail on our behalf. We also use service providers to authenticate and validate the information provided by our customers to help assure that our e-mail is successfully delivered. We have legally binding agreements with these third-party service providers that prohibit them from using your information for any purpose other than in accordance with the terms of their agreements with Campman. Therefore, if you sign up for Campman's e-mail newsletters, you should not receive unsolicited e-mails from other companies as a result of the release of your information by Campman.
A second statement we make is "You can opt-out at any time." This statement is our promise to you that we will respect a decision to stop receiving e-mail newsletters. Every e-mail you receive from Campman will include a link that allows you to quickly and easily unsubscribe from any or all e-mail newsletters.
Please note: In order to process your purchases, we may still send you a confirmation e-mail, or we may contact you by mail or telephone if we have questions about your order.
Communications from Campman and Other Companies
In some instances, we use third-party companies to help us provide products and services to you, to assist us in market research, managing customer information, or to fulfill promotions and communicate with you. Some of these companies are given access to some or all of the information you provide to us. These companies are contractually restricted from using your information in any manner other than in helping us to provide you with the products and services available from Campman.
In addition to the mailings above, we make available customer names and postal addresses (not your e-mail address or phone number), in combination with transactional data to other select companies. If you do not want us to share this information with these companies, we can add your name to our "do-not-share" list.

The Transmission Of Sensitive Data
We work hard to protect the information that you send to us while it is en route to and from our sites. To provide secure transmission, Campman employs Secure Sockets Layer technology (SSL) on those pages that involve sensitive information such as credit card numbers. SSL, which is supported by a vast majority of Internet browsers available today, is the most commonly employed method of secure, encrypted communication used on the Internet.
We have also obtained Verisign digital security certificates for all of our websites. Verisign is an independent third party that authenticates the identity of others on the Internet. By registering with Verisign, we provide you a method of independently authenticating that the entity you are dealing with over the Internet is actually Campman.
What Happens To My Information After Campman Receives It?
SSL protects information en route to us. Verisign certificate technology helps ensure that Campman is the actual recipient of this information. We don't stop there, we also work very hard to make sure the information you send us is stored and managed securely once we receive it. All data collected is stored on site and is protected by multiple levels of data and structural security. This information is only accessible to Campman.com and trusted, contracted third-party service providers.
