Privacy Notice & Conditions of Use
Privacy matters. TheOutdoorSource.com recognizes the importance of our customers' privacy, and takes a number of steps to protect that privacy. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for our Web site.
If you have any questions or concerns about the privacy or security of your information, you may contact us.
NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT
We automatically collect non-personally identifiable information from you when you visit our Site. This information includes your Internet Protocol ("IP") address, which is the number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. This number does not identify your name, email address, or other personal information. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Site.
PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT
We may collect your personally identifiable information, such as your name, shipping address, billing address, email address, phone number and credit card number, in the course of processing your order, or when we otherwise communicate with you. For example, through the order forms on our Site, we collect personally identifiable information necessary for shipping products that you purchase. We also may collect your financial information (like your credit card number and billing address) and your contact information (like your email address, phone number and shipping address). Financial information that is collected is used to bill you for products that you request. Contact information from the order form is used to send orders and information about our company to you. You may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see "How to remove your name from our mailing, sharing or email list" below.
If you register for email or if you provide your email address to us, we will send you emails. These emails will inform you of our launch of new products, of special sales, of promotional offers from our partners, of environmental issues we think are important and of events taking place in our stores near you. If you currently receive our emails and do not wish to continue receiving them, please see the "How to remove your name from our mailing, sharing or email list" section below.
We use your shipping address to ship your products to you and to send catalogs and other mailings to you. We use your billing address, if different than your shipping address, to verify your billing information. We never share our customer names or addresses, e-mail addresses, or other personally identifiable information, other than to the limited extent described in the "Consenting to Uses of Your Information" section below. If you do not wish to receive catalogs or other mailings from us, please see the "How to remove your name from our mailing, sharing or email list" section below.
CONSENTING TO USES OF YOUR INFORMATION
We only collect your personally identifiable information when you voluntarily submit it for the purposes of purchasing or ordering a product, or when you otherwise contact us online, in our stores, by telephone, or by mail. By initiating an order or other communication with us, you are consenting to our collection and use of your personal information for that specified purpose.
You may opt-out of receiving email communications about our company and products by clicking here or by checking the "I only want to receive order related emails" box on the order form.
If you do consent to a use of your information beyond that required to fulfill the purpose for which your information was collected, you may withdraw that consent by contacting The Outdoor Source.

SHOPPING AT OUR SITE
The Outdoor Source works to protect your personal information by using security standards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information, whether that information is collected and/or stored online or offline. We make reasonable and appropriate effort to safeguard such information from loss, theft, unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, modification, or destruction.
Specifically, we work to protect the security of your online order by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL encrypts the information that you transmit from your computer to TheOutdoorSource.com Web Site servers. If you are using a Netscape browser, you can check the security of your connection by looking at the lower left-hand corner of your browser window after accessing the server. For Internet Explorer, check the little boxes near the lower right-hand corner. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending upon your browser), then SSL is active.
Some versions of browsers and some firewalls do not permit communication through secure servers. If you are unable to connect to a secure server or cannot determine that you have a secure connection, please place your order by telephone by calling us at 614-457-3620.
