All references to CanvasCampers in this Privacy Policy are deemed to encompass all websites and sub-domains operated by Canvascampers including, but not restricted to canvascampers.com, colemanownersgroup.com, somersetrvforum.com, and thebestcampgrounds.com.

At CanvasCampers we are committed to safeguarding and preserving the privacy of our visitors. This Privacy Policy explains what happens to any personal data that you provide to us, or that we collect from you whilst you visit our site.

Information We Collect
Registration and membership at CanvasCampers is optional. For those visitors who sign up to become members of our forum and other restricted pages, we require them to supply an email address plus their first and last names. All other information that a member may choose to supply via the support forum profile form is optionally given.

Users may, from time to time, divulge to us further personal data items. Such data is voluntarily given. If posted on a forum topic users must be aware that this data may be viewable and available to other users of the forums. If sent as a Private Message it is viewable only to those selected to receive it.

The only other data item collected is the IP address of any user, registered or not, who posts on the forums.

It should be noted that our site is powered by WordPress. We are not responsible for any data collection that may potentially be harvested by the WordPress application and that we are unaware of.

If at any time a registered user of our website requests that we remove their registration and profile details, once we have verified that the request comes from the user in question we will accede to the request. Any support forum posts they have made will revert to ‘Guest’ status. However support forum topics and posts will only be removed at our own discretion and we retain the right to keep those available to other members.

Cookies
Like most other Web sites, CanvasCampers uses cookies. Cookies are small data files that Web sites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you’ve visited on the site as well as any special settings you have selected on a site. A cookie can’t read data off your hard drive or read cookie files created by other sites.

At CanvasCampers, cookies allow automatic logins to improve your experience with our site. For example, we may use a cookie to identify our logged-in members so they don’t have to re-enter a user id and password when they return to the site. Cookies can also be used to help us to better understand how visitors interact with our sites leading to the delivery of more relevant content.

Any user can adjust the settings on their computer to decline any cookies from CanvasCampers should they so wish. This in no way effects their usage of our support forum.

Online Ad Serving
CanvasCampers uses third-party advertising service companies to serve some of the advertisements on our site. Often, these third-party advertising companies employ cookie and pixel tag technologies to measure the effectiveness of Web advertisements. These companies may use information about your visits to our and other web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. We do not give any personally identifiable information to them as part of this relationship. Use of their tracking technology is subject to their own privacy policies.

Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information.

Our systems use PayPal for sales, and as such, all credit and financial information is transacted on their site. PayPal only shares with us the completed details of the transaction and whether the transaction is successful.

We make no other use of it whatsoever but reserve the right, should we wish, to send emails from time to time to inform users of our products and service.
