Privacy Policy

Florida Paddling Trails Association (FPTA) does not collect any personal information about you when you visit our website unless you choose to provide this information to us. Such information that you may submit is restricted to that which is required to meet your request for information, services, or merchandise.

Browsing our website

You can browse our website, subject to our Terms of Use, without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information. The only information we collect from a typical ordinary web site visit (one that does not involve a form submission) is your IP address, the pages you view and the date and time you view them. We use this information to measure site activity in order to improve the usefulness of our website to our visitors.

Collection of personally identifiable information

Visitors must register in order to use certain features of our website. During registration, a visitor is required to provide contact information such as name, email address, and zip code. We use this information to verify the authenticity of your email, and we may on occasion contact visitors about features and services that we believe may be of interest.

When a visitor asks us to provide information or a service, we request information that enables us to respond to the visitor. This information could include contact information (such as name, mailing address, and email address) and, if applicable, financial, payment, or billing information.

Florida Paddling Trails Association may gather email addresses and other personally identifiable data about visitors when such data is voluntarily submitted to FPTA. For example, our site uses submission forms for visitors to sign up for trail work or events; request information, services, or products; or to become a member. Email addresses from the submission form will be used only for the purpose of contacting you about the particular work party, event, online order or other interaction. You will receive unrelated emails only if you have specifically opted-in to one of our mailing lists at the time you provided it. Other contact information (e.g., mailing address) may be used to contact you about opportunities with the FPTA that we feel may be of interest to you.

Florida Paddling Trails Association does not sell, trade or otherwise disclose such user information outside our organization. However, if you become a member of Florida Paddling Trails Association, some information on our membership lists, such as your name and address, may be exchanged with other organizations that partner with FPTA.
