How We Share the Information We Collect

Affiliates

We may disclose information to current or future affiliates or subsidiaries for research, marketing, and other purposes consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Service Providers

We engage third parties to perform functions on our behalf such as: delivery services, customer information management, customer communications and marketing services, billing and collection, order fulfillment, auditing and accounting, professional services/consultants; analytics services; security services; and IT support. These companies are restricted from using your information in any manner other than as directed or permitted by us. There are limited circumstances in which the service provider collects data directly from you when their privacy policies may also apply.

Social Media Platforms

Where you choose to interact with us through social media, your interaction with these programs typically allows the social media company to collect some information about you through cookies or other tracking mechanisms that they place on your device. In some cases, the social media company may recognize you through its digital cookies even when you do not interact with their application. Please visit the social media companies' respective privacy policies to better understand their data collection practices and the controls they make available to you.

Business Partners

To enhance your experience on our Services, we provide information to a select group of companies that offer products and services that may be of interest to you. For example, on occasion, we offer promotions – such as sweepstakes or free camping – in conjunction with a business partner. We may share your information with the business partner if they need it to send you a product, such as a magazine subscription or fulfill the offer of a free night camping. Also as an example, we will occasionally send email promotions to our users on behalf of business partners regarding lifestyle-related products or services.

Acquirers of Business Assets

We may sell certain of our businesses or assets to other companies in connection with a merger, acquisition, or bankruptcy. When such transactions take place, your information may constitute a part of the transferred business assets. In the event that we, or any of our affiliates, sell some, all, or substantially all of our assets to another company, your information likely will be disclosed and transferred as an asset to such company.

Law Enforcement

We will disclose information as required by law, for example, to comply with a court order or subpoena; to enforce our Terms of Use, sweepstakes/contest rules, or assert or defend other legal claims; to a regulator or consumer protection authority with jurisdiction over us; or to protect the safety, integrity, and security of our Services, users, and information.

Aggregated Data

We may share aggregated or deidentified data at our discretion, including with marketing agencies, media agencies, and analytics providers.

Medical or Health Information

To the extent that we receive health information about you, that information is subject to electronic disclosure to extent permitted by applicable law.

Cookies and Similar Technologies

Cookies

Much of the information that we collect automatically is collected through cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies, as well as through your web browser or device. CWGS relies on partners to provide many features and to process information about your use of our Services and other websites.

Cookies are pieces of information that a website sends to your browser while you are viewing the website. These pieces of information allow the website to remember important information that will make your use of those websites more useful. Our websites and other websites use cookies for a variety of purposes. We use third party cookies and other tracking technologies to collect and process information about your browsing and buying activity on our websites.

We also contract with one or more third party website analysis service partners to provide us with a data collection and reporting services. When you access our websites, a third party website analysis service partner may use cookies and other technologies on our behalf and may receive information about your browsing and buying activity on our websites. Such data collection may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and we may share this aggregated data. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our Services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Firefox or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser's Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won't have access to many of our features that make your web experience more efficient.

Beacons

Our HTML-formatted emails may contain a web beacon to tell us whether our emails are opened and verify any clicks through to links or advertisements within the email. We may use this information for purposes including determining which of our emails are more interesting to users. The web beacon will be deleted when you delete the email. Emails in plain text (if applicable) rather than HTML will not include the web beacon.

Pixel tags

We use pixel tags (also sometimes also known as web beacons), which are transparent images, iFrames, or JavaScript, to understand how consumers interact with our websites, including on websites and in mobile apps. Pixel tags are small blocks of code on a webpage or app that allow them to read and place cookies and transmit information to us or our partners.

Third Party Analytics

We may use third-party analytics companies, for example Google Analytics (see privacy policy and opt-out) to evaluate your use of our Services. We use these tools to help us understand use of, and to improve, our Services. These entities may use cookies and other tracking technologies, such as web beacons or local storage objects (LSOs), to perform their services.

Third-Party Advertisers and Network Advertisers

We partner with companies that assist us in advertising about our Services to others who may be interested in the Services. These companies may use tracking technologies to collect or receive information from the Services and elsewhere on the internet and use that information to provide analytical services, interest tagging, and ad targeting.

In addition, some advertisements on our websites are promoting products and services from third-party companies. These companies are called "network advertisers." Network advertisers collect information when you visit our websites. The information is collected using technology, so you may not realize it is being collected. The network advertisers collect this information so that they can show you ads that are more relevant and interesting to you.

Our third party advertising and business partners may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected. You can opt out of receiving targeted ads from members of the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI") by following instructions on the NAI's website and the Digital Advertising Alliance ("DAA") by following the instructions on the DAA's website. Please note that opting out of participating ad networks does not opt you out of being served advertising.

Choices You Have About Our Processing of Your Information

Your Communication Preferences

If you have established an account with one of our business units, you can review your communication preferences through the "My Account" section of our websites. Communication preferences are permissions that you have granted us to communicate with you on specific areas of interest. You may make modifications to your communication preferences directly through this section of "My Account."

If you don't have an account, can't find your account, or some of our Services do not provide an account section, you can simply contact us via email by clicking "Contact Us" located at the bottom of all of our web pages or send an email directly to [email protected]. Please include information in the email that will help us identify your account so we can assist you with changing your communication preferences.

You can also request that we not send marketing emails to you either by unsubscribing from the communication via the link at the bottom of the email or by contacting us at [email protected].

When you subscribe to our publications, join the Good Sam Club, or otherwise do business with us, please tell us if you do not want to receive our direct mail marketing offers for any or just certain products and/or services. We will mark your account for a three-year period. You will not receive any direct mail offers from us during this three-year period for those products and/or services that you have indicated to us that you are not interested in receiving. If you change your mind, just get in touch with us and ask that we include you in future offerings. Please note that because marketing campaigns are planned a few months ahead of time, you may continue to receive marketing offers for two to four months after making a request. Write to us at Good Sam Mail Preference Service, P.O. Box 6888, Englewood, CO 80155-6888 to opt out from specific future mailings.

The Type of Security We Provide

We use a combination of physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to protect the information we process via the Services. While we use these precautions to safeguard your information, we cannot guarantee the security of the networks, systems, servers, devices, and databases we operate or that are operated on our behalf.

There are some things that you can do to help protect the security of your information as well. For instance, never give out your password, because this is what is used to access all of your account information. Also remember to sign out of your account and close your browser window when you finish surfing the web so that other people using the same computer won't have access to your information.

Third Party Sites

We may offer links to or from our Services to websites, services, and resources operated by third parties. We offer links to third party websites as a convenience. We are not responsible for the privacy practices, content, or policies of websites operated by third parties, and you should inquire about the privacy practices of such third parties before providing any personal information to those third parties. We are not responsible for such third parties' use or misuse of your information.

Children

Our Services are not directed to or intended for, and we do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 16. If you are under 16, please do not submit any information via our Services. We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children's internet usage and to help enforce our Privacy Policy by instructing their children to never provide information via our Services without their permission. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 16 has provided information to us via our Services, please contact us.

International Users

Our Services are directed to individuals in the U.S. Information that you provide to us and the data that we collect as a result of your using our Services will be processed in the U.S. The privacy and data protection laws in the U.S. may not be equivalent to or adequate under the laws in your country of residence or from which you access our Services. By using our Services or by otherwise providing us with your information you agree to the processing of your information in the U.S.

California and Nevada Privacy Rights

California Shine the Light

California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an e-mail to [email protected].

Do Not Track

Our websites currently do not honor browser "do not track" signals.

California Consumer Privacy Act

The California Consumer Privacy Act ("CCPA") provides California residents with rights to receive certain disclosures regarding a business' processing of "Personal Information," as well as rights to know/access, delete, and opt-out of the sale of Personal Information.

The CCPA defines "Personal Information" as "information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household."

Certain information we collect may be exempt from the CCPA because it is considered public information (i.e., it is made available by a government entity) or covered by a specific federal privacy law, such as the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or the Fair Credit Reporting Act. In addition, this Privacy Policy does not apply to the information we collect about job applicants, independent contractors, current for former employees, or information that is collected in the context of a business-to-business relationship.

To the extent that we collect Personal Information that is subject to the CCPA, the following applies.

Categories of Personal Information Collected, Disclosed for a Business Purpose, and Sold and Categories of Third Parties to Whom Personal Information is Disclosed for a Business Purpose or Sold

Our processing of Personal Information about California residents will vary depending upon the circumstances and nature of our interactions or relationship with such resident. The chart below summarizes, for the prior 12 months, the CCPA categories of information we collect, whether we disclose that information to third parties for business purposes or sell (as defined under the CCPA) that information, and the categories of third parties to whom we disclose that information for a business purpose or sell (as defined by the CCPA) that information. Please also see above "Types of Information We Collect and How We Collect It," "How We Use the Information We Collect," and "How We Share the Information We Collect" for more details.
