While BaseCampGuides.com will seek to require that any such third parties will follow the appropriate privacy policies and will not authorize them to use any part of this information except for the express purpose for which it was provided, BaseCampGuides.com does not bear any responsibility for any actions or policies of any third parties.

4. We may disclose personal identifiable information when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary in order to conform to the requirements of the law or to comply with legal process served on BaseCampGuides.com.

In some circumstances, usually as a result of publishing an article on BaseCampGuides.com Web site, we are contacted by individuals seeking personal identifiable information about a subject of the published article.

    C. Links and Forums:

1. BaseCampGuides.com provides a multitude of links to other Web sites. Please be aware that when you click on one of these links, you will be entering another Web site.

    D. On-line Advertising:

1. BaseCampGuides.com uses certain third party companies to deliver advertisements and other online communication. These companies may collect and use information about the customers who click or view these advertisements. The information they collect is aggregated so as to protect the privacy of our readers, but BaseCampGuides.com does not bear any responsibility for any actions or policies of any third parties.

    E. Cookies and other tracking technologies:

1. BaseCampGuides.com may use persistent “cookies” to store and track information on our Web site, enabling us to provide our visitors with customizable and personalized services. Such a service may include remembering preferences that you voluntarily set so we can supply the latest insider tips for living and working in Las Vegas and special promotions for Megan Edwards’ Preferred Readers Group events. Cookies are small bits of data that we send to the browser on your computer from our Web server.

2. BaseCampGuides.com supports the efforts of the Platform for Privacy Preferences Project (P3P) and may incorporate some of the tracking protocol at a future date. But we feel strongly that you have the absolute authority to control any of your personal information that is gathered on this Web site. The Web site administrator will endeavor to stay current with the technological changes associated with privacy issues to ensure that your rights to privacy while visiting this Web site are protected.

    F. Security:

1. At present, BaseCampGuides.com does not support an internal commerce Web site, (for the purchase of Southwest regional hiking-related books and products through the use of credit cards or electronic cash). All such purchases are conducted through third parties, and SSL encryption is used when you are prompted to enter sensitive information, (such as credit card number and/or social security number).

2. While secure encryption technology is used to protect sensitive information on-line, we also protect all user information that is stored offline. Only one person, the Web site administrator, has access to the distribution list and database that we use to send the e-newsletters. A third-party company stores the e-mail addresses of subscribers to the e-newsletter in a secure and encrypted database.

3. The BaseCampGuides.com Web server is located in a locked cage in a secure facility. No unauthorized person has access of any kind to any of the BaseCampGuides.com online files.

    G. Choice/Double Opt-In:

1. BaseCampGuides.com employs a “double opt-in” registration procedure for its e-mail newsletters. Upon submission of the registration form, a reader will receive a confirmation e-mail message containing a confirmation link. Clicking on the link confirms the registration, and the reader is “double opted-in.”

2. If you have registered to receive e-mail communications from us and later change your mind, you may contact us to have your name and e-mail address removed from the distribution lists. Should you wish to remove your name and e-mail address, please send an e-mail requesting removal of this information to webmaster@BaseCampGuides.com

3. We also give you the option to remove your name and e-mail address upon receipt of every e-newsletter that we send to you.
