Types of Personal Information
In the interest of full transparency, we will describe the two categories of personal information we collect.
Non-personally identifiable information
The first type is non-personally identifiable information. Most websites collect non-personally identifiable information for statistical purposes. This information, as the name suggest, cannot be used to identify you personally. As such, it gives us a very broad understanding of who are readers are and what content they prefer.
Personally identifiable information
The second type of information we collect is personally identifiable information. This information CAN be used to identify you. This includes your full name, address, phone number, email and other similar personal details. As a rule, we never collect personally identifiable information without your consent. Likewise, we will never disclose personally identifiable information to third parties, unless we are obliged to by law for any reason.
Methods of Collecting Personal Information
Methods of collecting non-personally identifiable information
Non-personally identifiable information is collected every time you access our website. This is done automatically in the form of log files. The information within these files include the time and date you accessed our website, your general geographic location and your browser type. We may also collect information about what articles you read and how much time you spend reading an article.
As mentioned, all of this information helps understand our readership. It tells the articles you prefer reading, and gives us a hint about what articles you don’t like. This helps us improve our future content to better suit your tastes. It can also help us track issues with our website or website content.
Methods of collection personally identifiable information
We never collect personally identifiable information without your prior consent. Situations in which we may need to collect this information include signing up for our newsletter, posting comments on our website, or contacting the GetPaintball.com team. The personally identifiable information we collect is necessary in order to ensure smooth communication between you and our team.
Personally identifiable information helps us verify your identity and prove that you are not an automatic messaging system. It also helps reply to your messages and stay in touch regarding personalized offers and news you might be interested in.
We may also gain access to your personally identifiable information when you get in touch via our social media channels. However, we do not store this information, nor do we disclose it to any third parties. The only exceptional cases in which we may disclose personally identifiable information is when we are required to do so by law, when not disclosing this information could jeopardize the safety of our website, team or website users.
