Privacy Policy

This Web Site Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy") is provided by Handgun Basics ("we," "our," or "us"). This
Privacy Policy describes Handgun Basics' practices regarding Personal Information (as defined below)
collected via the Handgun Basics web sites that include a link to this Privacy Policy (the "Web Sites"). Unless
specifically stated otherwise, this Privacy Policy applies solely to Personal Information that we gather or
collect via such Web Sites. It does not apply to any information collected offline or otherwise outside of the
Web Sites.
Please take a moment to review the terms of this Privacy Policy. Please also review our Terms of Use,
which govern your use of our Web Sites. Please note that certain features or services discussed in this
Privacy Policy may not be offered or available on all of our Web Sites.
What Personal Information Does Handgun Basics Collect About Me?When you visit a Web Site, we
may collect two types of information from you: (1) Personal Information you voluntarily choose to disclose to
us, and (2) Web Site Usage Information that we automatically collect as you interact with the Web Site.
Information You Voluntarily Provide to UsIn most cases, you can visit a Web Site without telling us who
you are and without providing any information about yourself. There are times, however, when we may ask
you to provide voluntarily information about yourself via the Web Site, such as your name, mailing address,
e-mail address, phone number, etc. ("Personal Information"). For example, we may ask you to give us
Personal Information so that we can register you with a Web Site, provide you with a subscription to a
newsletter, process an order you submit, provide a service to you, or so that we may correspond with you. In
addition, there are certain other situations where we may collect and use Personal Information that you
voluntarily provide while using a Web Site even though it is not necessary for the function you are using. This
includes, for example, Personal Information you provide when you submit a photo, enter a contest or
sweepstakes we offer, or otherwise provide submissions to us or a Web Site, or when you use the "contact
us" mechanisms. You are under no obligation to provide such Personal Information, but if you choose not to,
you may be unable to use certain features or services provided by the Web Sites.
Information We Automatically Collect When you visit a Web Site, we may automatically collect certain
information related to your activities on the Web Site ("Web Site Usage Information"). This information may
include your browser type, operating system, IP address, the domain from which you came, the page you
are viewing, the time, and what you clicked on, among other information. Web Site Usage Information is
typically anonymous information, because it is not normally associated with you or your identity. However, if
it is combined with your Personal Information in a manner that it is directly associated with your identity, it will
be treated as Personal Information under this Privacy Policy. To collect Web Site Usage Information, we may
utilize a variety of technologies such as cookies, embedded scripts or other, similar technologies.
Cookies. A cookie is a small data file placed on a computer when it is used to visit a web site. Cookies may
be used for many purposes, such as tracking user preferences and web pages visited while using the Web
Site. You may disable cookies using your browser's preferences, but some features of our Web Sites may
not function properly or may operate slowly if you disable the cookies.
Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is a programming code that is designed to collect information
about your interactions with the Web Site, such as which links you click on. The code is temporarily
downloaded onto your computer from our web server or a third party service provider, is active only while
you are connected to the Web Site, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
Notice to ParentsThe Web Sites are general audience web sites, and we do not knowingly collect any
Personal Information from children younger than the age of thirteen (13). We will delete any Personal
Information collected that we later determine to be from a user younger than the age of thirteen (13).
How Does Handgun Basics Use Personal Information?We may use Personal Information collected from
the Web Sites for a variety of purposes, including: (1) to provide you with information, products, or services
that you have ordered, requested, or agreed to receive (such as fulfilling a catalog request or e-mail
newsletter, or processing your Online Store order transactions); (2) to process your registration with a Web
Site, including verifying that your e-mail address is active and valid; (3) to improve the Web Sites or our
services, or to customize your experience on the Web Sites; (4) to communicate with you regarding
information, features, products, services, or offers that we believe may be of interest to you; (5) to respond to
your questions or other requests; (6) to contact you with regard to a Web Site; (7) to process any
applications, orders, payments, or changes to your account information; (8) to process Personal Information
or other information that you submit through a Web Site; (9) to conduct user surveys; (10) to contact you
regarding a sweepstakes, contest or promotion in which you have participated, (11) for internal business
purposes; and (12) for other purposes disclosed in this Privacy Policy, disclosed at the time you provide the
Personal Information, or disclosed thereafter.
The Web Site Usage Information we collect may be used for a number of purposes, such as system
administration, to help us understand the demographics of the visitors to the Web Sites, to enhance the
performance and usefulness of the Web Sites, to report aggregate information to our business partners, or to
audit use of the Web Sites.
With Whom Do We Share the Personal Information?The Personal Information that we collect on our Web
Sites may be shared in the following cases:
Third Parties Providing Services on Our Behalf. We may share Personal Information with our agents and
representatives who perform services on our behalf. This includes third parties that host or operate certain
functions or features of one or more of the Web Sites, send communications on our behalf (including
marketing e-mails), process credit card and other payment transactions, fulfill orders, analyze data, provide
marketing assistance, or create, host and/or provide customer service on our behalf. These third parties may
have access to Personal Information in order to provide these services to us or on our behalf, but are
permitted to use such Information only in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.
Sweepstakes, Contests and Promotions. We may offer sweepstakes, contests, and other promotions
(collectively, "Promotions") through the Web Sites. If you choose to participate in a Promotion, Personal
Information about you may be disclosed to third parties or the public in connection with the administration of
such Promotion, including, without limitation, in connection with winner selection, prize fulfillment, and as
required by law or permitted by the Promotion's official rules, such as on a winners list. Also, by entering a
Promotion, you are agreeing to the official rules that govern that Promotion, which may contain specific
requirements of you, including, except where prohibited by law, allowing the sponsor(s) of the Promotion to
use your name, voice and/or likeness in advertising or marketing associated with the promotion.
Business Transfers and Corporate Changes. We reserve the right to disclose and transfer Personal
Information: (1) to a subsequent owner, co-owner or operator of one or more of the Web Sites; or (2) in
connection with a corporate change, including, without limitation, during the course of any due diligence
process.
Legal Requirements and Law Enforcement. We may also transfer and disclose Personal Information to
third parties: (1) in the event we are required to respond to a court order, subpoena, discovery request, or
other legal process, or if in our good faith opinion such disclosure is required by law; (2) at the request of
governmental authorities conducting an audit or investigation; (3) to verify or enforce compliance with our
Terms of Use, other agreements or policies governing a Web Site, or applicable laws, rules, and regulations;
or (4) whenever we believe disclosure is necessary to limit our legal liability or to protect or enforce the
rights, interests, or safety of a Web Site, its users or other third parties. We also reserve the right to report to
law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful.
Except as indicated above, Handgun Basics will not disclose to others any of your Personal Information
unless we have your express permission.
Handgun Basics may, however, share non-personally identifiable information, such as Web Site Usage
Information or other aggregated user statistics, as well as anonymous information derived from Personal
Information, such as de-identified user information, with third parties for any purpose.
What are My Choices Regarding Use and Distribution of Personal Information? When you are asked
for Personal Information on a Web Site, you will be given the opportunity to "opt out" from having Handgun
Basics contact you regarding special offers and promotions.
If you did not opt out from receiving offers and promotions, we may occasionally send you information about
products and services that we feel may be of interest to you. Only Handgun Basics (or agents or
representatives working on behalf of Handgun Basics who are permitted to use your information only in
accordance with this Privacy Policy) will send you these offers. If you choose to stop receiving these
mailings, you can, at any time, simply unsubscribe by following the instructions at the bottom of each such e-
mail, so that you will no longer receive such offers and mailings. If you give us your telephone number, we
will use it only to call you regarding orders that you have placed for products or for product safety or advisory
information.
Links and Advertisements:The Web Sites may contain advertisements or other links to third-party web
sites that Handgun Basics does not own or control. Handgun Basics is not responsible for the privacy
practices employed by any third-party web site. Links or advertisements do not constitute or imply any review
or endorsement of any non-Ruger site. You visit other sites at your own risk. Because other sites may
collect, use and distribute your Personal Information in manners different than Handgun Basics, we
recommend that you read the privacy statements of all third party web sites before submitting any Personal
Information to those web sites. They are not within our control.
Consent to Transfer Personal Information to the United States The Web Sites are operated in the United
States. If you are located in the European Union, Canada or elsewhere outside of the United States, please
be aware that information we collect will be transferred to and processed in the United States. By using any
of the Web Sites or providing us with any information, you consent to this transfer and processing of your
information in the United States.
About Our Web Site Security No data transmission over the Internet, wireless transmission or electronic
storage of information can be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your Personal Information, Handgun
Basics cannot warrant the security of any Personal Information you transmit to us and you do so at your own
risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.
Please keep in mind that whenever you disclose Personal Information Online, that information can be
collected and used by others. You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords
and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're Online.
Contact Us; Additional InformationWe appreciate the trust that you, our customers, have placed in us and
look forward to serving you in the future. If you have any questions regarding this Privacy Policy, or if you
feel that we are not following this Privacy Policy, please contact us electronically, or via telephone at 813-
567-3100.
Changes to our Web Site Privacy Policy We may change this Privacy Policy at any time without notice to
you. Any changes will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised Privacy Policy. However, we
will not use Personal Information about you in a manner materially different than what was stated at the time
it was collected unless we receive your consent.
