This Privacy Policy is intended to inform users about the general approach Hot Spring Adventures (know herein after as "HSA") uses in collecting, using and disseminating user information via HotSpringAdventures.com.

Data Automatically Collected
When you visit HotSpringAdventures.com, our web server automatically recognizes your domain name, but not your e-mail address. We collect the domain name and monitor general site use and traffic patterns to improve our web site and the products and services we offer. HSA uses web server logs to collect data for metric purposes. Examples of the types of data collected on the logs are IP addresses, referral pages, date and time of Site access, and Site visited. We may use collected data to customize the content and/or layout of our pages for each individual visitor.

Use of Cookies
Cookies are small data files placed on your hard drive by a website server when you visit. HotSpringAdventures.com may use special "session" cookies for tracking purposes or to make the Site easier to use or for tracking registered HotSpringAdventures.com members use of the Site. We do not attempt to identify visitors if they do not voluntarily submit personal information to us. With most internet browsers, you can erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Cookies offer enhanced functionality to the user, but whether you allow a cookie to be placed on your computer is up to you.  If you choose not to block cookies, you will not be able to login and use the members' sections of the site.

Collection of  Personal Information
In some cases,
HSA requests personally identifiable information from you in order to satisfy the underlying transaction or purpose of your accessing the Site. Examples of personally identifiable information include names, e-mail addresses, mailing addresses, and the like. Please note that we do not consider aggregated information, from which personally identifiable information has been removed, to be private.

Security
We do not treat your general interaction with HotSpringAdventures.com (e.g., submission of suggestions) as confidential. However, certain personal information such as transmission of credit card data will be encrypted, so that only appropriate personnel are able to decode your information. Note that most internet browsers also offer security alerts that permit you to determine whether your transmissions are protected. Please refer to the agreements and policies applicable to the HotSpringAdventures.com Site for which you provide personal information in order to assure that you understand applicable security practices.

Disclosure of Visitor Information? We do not rent, sell, or trade any personally identifiable information about you (e.g., e-mail addresses) to third parties. In order to cooperate with legitimate governmental requests, subpoenas, or court orders, to protect HSA and/or HSA's systems and customers, or to ensure the integrity and operation of HSA and/or HSA's business and systems, HSA and/or HSA may access and disclose any information it considers necessary or appropriate under the circumstances.

Children's Privacy
HSA asks children under 13 not to transmit any information to the Site.

External links? For the convenience of our Site visitors, HotSpringAdventures.com may provide links to third party web sites that are external to HotSpringAdventures.com. These web sites are not operated or controlled by HSA, and HSA is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such external web sites.

Privacy Policy Revision
From time to time, HSA may revise this Privacy Policy at its discretion. The policy is dated at the top of the policy, so you know when it was last updated. HSA advises you to check back periodically to review the Privacy Policy because users of the Site will be prospectively bound by the then-current version of this Privacy Policy.
