You can visit our Web Site and learn about the services we provide without providing personal information. However, you do need to provide personal information to buy items, and to participate in our user forums and other interactive portions of the Site. We do not collect any personal information on the Site unless you provide it voluntarily. However, certain non-personally identifiable information, such as IP address, is collected automatically from every Site visitor, even if not voluntarily provided.
We collect and use personal information in the specific ways listed below, and generally to improve our Site and services to you, as well as to meet our legal obligations. We also use personal information you provide for other purposes consistent with the reason you provide such information to us.
Registration: Our Site’s registration process requires users to provide us valid and accurate contact information including name, address, phone number, and email address (collectively, “Registration Information”).
Registration Information and information submitted during transactions on the Site may be used in the following ways:
- To perform our billing and administration functions (and to contact you when necessary about these functions);
- To communicate with you and carry out actions requested by you (such as subscriptions to newsletters); and
- When facilitating the investigation of fraud or illegal activity, to share information with bona-fide law enforcement agencies.
Please see “Communications From the Site and Your Choices” below for information on controlling communications from us.
Financial Information: If you buy items on the Site, we collect financial information including bank account and/or credit card number, expiration date, card security code and billing address. Financial information is used to bill you for transactions you carry out on the Site and to collect on fees and debts incurred through the use of the Site. If your account is past due and collection must be pursued, your contact and financial information may be shared with collection agents and/or credit reporting agencies. We share financial information with non-affiliated third parties to facilitate the completion of transactions as specified above, to respond to subpoenas, for other legal compliance purposes, and for billing and collections.
Contests and Surveys: If you decide to enter contests or surveys featured from time to time on the Site, you may be asked for personal information in addition to your Registration Information. This information is used in order to administer the contest or survey (for example, to contact the winner) or as otherwise disclosed on the Site at the time we collect the information.
Information Requests: We may ask you to provide personal information in order to allow us to respond to your requests for information or other requests made over the Site.
Emails from laststandsurvivalshop.com: Any email messages generated by the Site result directly from the user’s actions (such as registration information, confirmation of an order, or the user’s choice to subscribe to certain communications), or as necessary to inform you of changes to the Site or events related to the Site, or changes to the Site rules or policies. Users may opt-out of receiving many future mailings; see the section below entitled “Communications from the Site and Your Choices.”
Emails from our Site may contain web beacons or “clear .gifs.” These are small graphic images that can be used for recording when an email has been opened in order to track the performance of email marketing campaigns. We and our third party service providers currently log responses from web beacons, but this information is not stored or linked to your personal information in our systems.

To disable this function in your web browser, choose the “help” menu and follow the instructions for deleting cookies and preventing your browser from downloading additional cookies.

We do not store personal or confidential information in cookies (although our third party advertisers may – see below under “Banner Advertising”)
General Uses: In addition to the foregoing, we will use your personal information as specifically described on the Site at the time of collection. We may also use your information internally to customize your experience with our company and our Site (for example, adapting the Site to your browser), to help us develop new products and services, to verify your identity, to collect debts owed to us, or to investigate or settle inquiries or disputes, and for other legally required or permissible purposes.
We hire contractors to provide certain services on our behalf, including information processing and storage. These contractors are required to maintain the confidentiality of information they receive from us and are restricted from using the information for any purposes other than those authorized by us.
