Your privacy is important to me. To protect your privacy, I provide this notice explaining my information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
1. Collection and Use of Personal Information
When you request information, register using one of my forms, donate, or contact me offline, I may need your specific information in order to process your registration/request and reply promptly.
I may ask you for contact information (such as your name, email and address) and demographic information (such as your zip code or age). I also collect demographic and profile data at my site and in my databases to help me through the information, my programs, and my services. I use data you provide to tailor your experience at the raccoon-lodge.com site (RL site) and develop and distribute content that I think you might be interested in.
In general, I use identifiable information to complete a transaction, as indicated below. I do not provide your name and address or email to outside parties, except as described here. To learn more about my encryption policies, please review the section on "Protecting Personal Information" (below).

You acknowledge and agree that the RL site has no control over such sites and resources and is not responsible for the availability of such external sites or resources, and does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for any materials, advertising, products, or other materials on or available from such sites or resources. You further acknowledge and agree that the RL site shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such materials or goods available on or through any such site or resource.
