We try to collect as little information as possible while still providing you with a quality service. Your privacy is important to us, and we do our best to protect your personal information and ensure that information is kept private and secure. If you have any questions, please send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any time you go on the website or open up the Camp Connect application, you are allowing Camp Connect to collect information in accordance with this policy. Your use is your consent.
When you visit or use Camp Connect, we collect personal information, such as your name, email address, IP address, password, and any other information you provide.
Camp Connect enables camps to share photographs and videos of campers. If you see a picture of your camper on Camp Connect, uploaded without your consent, please send us an email at email@example.com.
We may change parts of this policy from time to time, so it is important to check it frequently. If significant changes are made, we will do our best to notify you either when you access or use the Service or via email.
HOW YOU ACCEPT THIS POLICY
INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND WHY
In order to provide you with a high quality service and verify your identity, we collect various types of information when you visit Camp Connect and when you create an account at
As a Visitor
We may collect various types of anonymous information about visitors who use our Service, such as device-related information (e.g., device, browser, IP address) and server log information (e.g., date and time of day of your visit). We use this information to better understand our visitors and to enhance your experience.
As a Parent or Guardian
When you create a user account, we will also collect certain personal information such as your first and last name, email address, personal address, telephone number, date of birth and password as part of your user profile. We will also ask you to provide information about your camper(s), such as the camper’s first and last name, date of birth, and gender. We use this information to validate your identity, make it easier for the camp to identify photos of camper(s), and ensure that you receive important information generated by Camp Connect. By setting up an account, you confirm that you have the right to collect and use the information that you give to Camp Connect.
The Service keeps track of your use of the Service, in order to generate useful reports for our internal purposes with the aim of improving the Service.
Please keep in mind that we may also collect various other types of personal information related to your use of Camp Connect. For example, we may ask for additional information if you contact us for technical support. We may collect hardware addresses or unique user identifier numbers. We may also collect a picture of you, your contacts and your GPS location if you download our mobile app.
We may set and access cookies on your device when you use Camp Connect. When logging into the Service, a cookie is sent to your device that identifies your user account and allows you to successfully access the site. A “cookie” is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer and stored on your device when you visit a website. You are not required to accept any cookies; however if cookies are impaired or disabled, you may not be able to log in successfully and/or some features of Camp Connect may not function properly.
We may use analytics tools, such as Google Analytics and Mixpanel, to collect information about your usage of Camp Connect (collectively “Analytics Tools”). These Analytics Tools collect information such as how often you visit the Site, what pages you visit when you visit the Site, and what other sites you used prior to coming to the Site.
Analytics Tools all operate differently. For example, Google Analytics only collects the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit Camp Connect, not your name or other identifying information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your computer to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. MixPanel, by contrast, gives us the ability to track your specific activity on the Site.
As of right now, we only use the information we get from Analytics Tools to improve the Site and do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics or Mixpanel with personally identifiable information. However, we reserve the right to do so in the future
You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to Camp Connect by disabling cookies on your browser. You also can opt out of Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on here, and opt out of Mixpanel’s automatic retention of data collected through your browser by clicking here.

WHEN DO WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We will never sell, rent, or trade any information that you provide us or share any of your information with any third parties, except as provided below.
We may disclose personal information in response to service of legal process, such as a court order, summons, subpoenas, or as permitted or required by law when we reasonably believe it is necessary or appropriate to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or violations of our Terms of Service, which can be found at:
We may disclose potentially personally-identifying information to employees, independent contractors, vendors, and affiliated organizations that need to know your personal information in order to provide services available on Camp Connect. Some of these employees, contractors, or affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country. By using Camp Connect, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Information about our users, including personal information, may be disclosed or transferred to entities, now or in the future, affiliated with us or as part of any merger, acquisition, change of control, debt financing, insolvency, bankruptcy or sale of our assets. Such information may be used in the businesses of any entity so receiving it.
Camp Connect will retain your data for the life of the Service. If you delete your account, only your personal information will be deleted. We may retain some personal information that you have provided to us in order to maintain the Service for other users.
Camp Connect is intended to be used by parents or guardians of campers, the camps, and the camps’ staff. Unless authorized by a camp, you cannot sign up for a user account if you are under the age of 18. We do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 18, except for information that may be provided to us about campers by the Camp, a parent, or a guardian in order to set up an account.
If you are a parent or guardian, the camp that your camper is attending should have provided you with a consent form to authorize the collection, uploading, and display of photographs and videos of your camper on the Service. If you see or learn that photographs or videos of your camper are accessible on Camp Connect without your consent, please contact us at immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
YOUR CHOICE AS A USER
Once your Camp Connect user account profile has been created, you can review and revise that information. If you have any problems, you may also contact us at email@example.com.
PROTECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We employ several physical and electronic safeguards to keep your information safe, including encrypted user passwords. Even with all these precautions, we cannot fully guarantee against the access, disclosure, alteration, or deletion of data through events such as, but not limited to, hardware or software failure or unauthorized entry or use.
ONLINE TRACKING & HOW WE RESPOND TO DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS
Online tracking is the collection of data about an individual’s Internet activity used to deliver targeted advertisements and for other purposes. Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (DNT) or similar feature that signals to websites that a visitor does not want to have his/her online activity and behavior tracked. If an online service elects to respond to a particular DNT signal, the service may refrain from collecting certain personal information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and there is currently no industry consensus as to what constitutes a DNT signal. For these reasons, many website operators, including Camp Connect, do not take action to respond to DNT signals. For more information about DNT signals, visit http://allaboutdnt.com.
