Sharing Information with Third Parties

We may share data with trusted partners to help perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. BackRoads prohibits these third parties from using your personal information except to provide these services to BackRoads. And they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
BackRoads may disclose your personal information, without notice, if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on BackRoads or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of BackRoads; and/or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of BackRoads, or the public.
Tracking User Behavior
BackRoads may keep track of the websites and pages our users visit within BackRoads, in order to determine what BackRoads services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within BackRoads to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
Automatically Collected Information
BackRoads may automatically collect information about your computer hardware and software. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. We use this information to operate the service, maintain service quality, and provide general statistics on BackRoads website usage.
The BackRoads website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. Web page servers place cookies, a text file, on your hard disk. Web servers in the domain that issue cookies uniquely assign them to users. These cookies cannot run programs or deliver viruses to users’ computers and can only be read by the web server.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize BackRoads pages, or register with BackRoads site or services, a cookie helps BackRoads to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you revisit the BackRoads website, the website can retrieve the information you previously provided. This allows you to easily use the customized BackRoads features.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the BackRoads services or websites you visit.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
Security of your Personal Information
BackRoads secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. BackRoads uses the following methods for this purpose:
When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.
We strive to take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or alteration of your personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations inherent to the Internet which are beyond our control; and (b) security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this Site cannot be guaranteed.
Right to Deletion
Subject to certain exceptions set out below, on receipt of a verifiable request from you, we will:
- Delete your personal information from our records; and
- Direct any service providers to delete your personal information from their records. Please note that we may not be able to comply with requests to delete your personal information if it is necessary to: complete the transaction for which the personal information was collected, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with federal law, provide a good or service requested by you, or reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform a contract between you and us;
