We serve a general audience, and as such the posts, pages, content and materials on this site are not intended for anyone under 13 years of age. We are committed to protecting the privacy of underaged internet users, and will delete any information accidentally collected from anyone under 13 years of age as soon as we are aware of it.
This site will never knowingly try to collect any personal identification (including, but not limited to, social security numbers, credit card information, bank information, personal identification cards, numbers or pins), contact information, or email addresses without the explicit consent of the User.
Practically speaking, when your personal information is collected, it will be in the form of a voluntary email sign up list, comment form or contact form, and will require consent by the user. The Site will happily purge any personal identification or contact information from our records at the written request of the User.
Personal Information and non-anonymous data, as described above, will not be disclosed to any services, merchants, products, companies or Third Parties without the express consent of the User. The only exceptions are 1) in the case of a court order, subpoena, or other lawful request, and 2) in a case where it’s deemed legally necessary for the safety of others.
We do not have the ability to let you review or change data submitted by or collected from the User, but we can delete all data related to the User, upon request.
In the event of sale of the Site, collected User information will be one of the assets that is transferred to the new ownership.
Bikesmarts.com collects data from all visitors to the site, unless said data is explicitly blocked by the user. This is standard practice with many sites, and the data collected is used to measure and improve site traffic, improve layout and services, understand the demographics of the User, and ultimately provide an ideal experience for the User.
The data is collected through Third Party analytics software, and is collected automatically from each visitor to the site (unless otherwise blocked). This data is viewed as an aggregate, and we aren’t looking at individual visits.
Some examples of data that may be collected are: internet protocol (IP) addresses, internet service providers (ISPs), browser data, entry and exit points, and other relevant demographics. This information is anonymous and used for the purpose of monitoring traffic trends.
