Your Privacy Matters To Us
With all the recent coverage concerning your privacy on the internet we felt it necessary to
jive you a very quick rundown on what types of data is collected by the CampgroundsAlaska website.
we are including this page that clearly explains our approach to privacy on all our CampgroundsAlaska
imformation pages along with how our policy may affect you.
General Overview of Viewers Privacy Issues

you view from; ie. moble or desktop.

before setting nearly all cookies and equivalent technologies.
Measuring our visitors
We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous — so we don't know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.
The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.
You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish.
Ads from third parties
CampgroundsAlaska.com use Google technologies to improve the user experience and to keep this site
free to read and enjoy. How
Google uses data when you use our partners' sites or apps.
Additionally we use a variety of ad providers to personalise content and ads toi the user and topics.
These companies will have access to a limited amount of your personal information.
The third parties we use are Amazon (for related item purchaces), Google
Adsense (to allow local
businesses to offer services or specials) and recreation.gov (to make reservations in federal campgrounds).
Facebook, Twitter and other social networks
These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website — such as the “Like” and “Tweet” buttons.
To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons
generally know if you're logged in; for example Facebook use this to give you a number of facebook
users that also like this. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those
networks use it.
Social networks therefore could know that you're viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn't to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.
If you sign up for a service
When you sign up for any of our services — paid or otherwise — we will record specific personal information about you, such as your name and email address.
We will also collect and store information about your use of our services so as to improve them. For example, we keep a log of what features are being used at any time.
We also log account and transaction history for accounting purposes, and to monitor our business activities.
We may send you email communications regarding your inquiries (such as directions or dates) or other
information which you have specifically requested (such as newsletters, changes or updates). You have
the ability to opt out of any of this communication at any time.
We will never provide your personal information or email address to any third parties except where
they are specifically employed to help deliver our own services, as detailed above, and then only after
gaining your permission beforehand.
We use a variety of payment providers to bill for our products online. These companies will have access to your personal and payment information. When paying by credit card, CampgroundsAlaska themselves do not ever have any access to your credit card details.
The third parties we use are Recurly (for recurring payments), SagePay (to process credit cards) and PayPal (to process credit cards and accept payment via PayPal).
We share information with these companies only to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing payments you make via our website.
CampgroundsAlaska takes many precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal
information. These precautions include:
- Use of SSL encryption for sensitive data
- Hardware stored in datacenters secured behind firewalls
- All access to information restricted by password and/or secure key
- Restrictions to what information can be accessed via any location
Whilst we take great care to ensure any confidential information remains protected we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the Internet.
Of course you are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential. Nobody at CampgroundsAlaska will ever ask you for your password, so please don't trust anybody asking you for it.
CampgroundsAlaska makes use of various 3rd party APIs to collect the required information to perform
functions to display related information to visitors. For example we use the Google Maps API to gather
