COPPA Compliance

Eastham Vacation Guide does not knowingly collect or store any personal information, even in an aggregate form, about site users ages 12 and under. The Eastham Vacation Guide site is a free service for users, with travel and vacation content to be used by people ages 13 and older. When younger children access this site it should be under the guidance of parents.

Ad Server and Third Party Collection of Data

All users who receive an ad served by Eastham Vacation Guide’s ad serving partners retain complete anonymity. As ads are delivered, advertisers may use software called “cookies” to collect information that is specific to how you use the Internet. These servers note non-personally-identifying details such as, but not limited to, the server you are logged onto, the geographic location of the ISP you use, the type of browser you use, and your IP address. This information is obtained solely for the purpose of targeting ads and measuring a given ad’s effectiveness on behalf of the ad server’s clients and customers. If you want to prevent a third-party advertiser from setting and/or reading cookies on your computer, you may either visit each ad server’s web site individually and register your choice (“opt out”) or you may visit the Network Advertising Initiative ‘s (“NAI”) site to opt-out of many of the third-party advertising companies’ cookies. There are instances where a user may provide specific personal information in response to an ad containing a survey, purchase agreement, or registration questionnaire. For such programs, an ad server (or a third party working in conjunction with the advertiser) acquires this information on behalf of the advertiser client. This information is used by the client so the user can receive the goods or services requested. When requested, ad servers may employ this information in a compiled format without identifying users specifically to provide to the advertiser client precise profiles of the types of individuals responding to the ads.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, Eastham Vacation Guide will post these changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it. Regardless of later updates, we will never use the information you submit under this current policy in a new way without first providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prevent that use.
