Visitors of www.basscat.com may provide us with certain personal information. Our primary purpose for collecting and using personal information is to improve our site and to provide you with an experience on our site tailored to your preferences and information requests.
When you are on www.basscat.com and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with only Basscat, its agents and representatives. Basscat will not disclose any of your individual personal information except when we have your express permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it. Basscat may also disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Basscat rights or property, other users or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.
In addition, please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example on message boards, through e-mail, or in threaded discussion areas - that information can be collected and used.
Offline and online contact information is handled differently. As is customary in the publications business, offline contact information is shared with third parties who may send you offers or information about their products or services that we deem may be of interest to you. You must opt-out if you do not wish to receive information from us or third parties by mail.
Basscat is aware that you may be concerned about the privacy and confidentiality of your personal information, including, of course, credit card information. Ranger has taken steps to ensure that this information is well protected. We protect your transactions using a technology called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). If your browser is capable of SSL, and most are, your sensitive information will automatically be encrypted before being sent over the Internet, providing you with a high level of security to ease your concerns.
No data transmission over the Internet can be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your personal information, Basscat cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online that information can be collected and used by others.
