Information Collection and Use
When you use the Services, you provide information to us. PutGunsInSafeHands.org collects two types of information: the first is, information that you provide to us that lets us know who you are. We refer to that as (“Personally Identifiable Information”). The second form is information that does not by itself identify a specific individual, and we refer to that as (“Non-personally Identifiable Information”).
Personally Identifiable Information
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We automatically receive and collect Non-personally Identifiable Information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, the Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) that you just visited, which URL you go to next, browser type, browser language, date and time of your search, PutGunsInSafeHands.org cookie information, and the pages you request. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. We may use third-party analytics services to collect and analyze the information collected as described above. The purpose of this information is for website and content efficiency.
Use of Information
We will use Non-personally Identifiable Information to diagnose problems with our servers and software, to help run our site, and to gather demographic information on our users. Our third-party networks and servers will also provide us analytics that will tell us how many ads were presented and clicked upon on our site in a manner that does not identify personally any individual.
We may also use “pixel tags,” they are small files that allow us to monitor the use of our site. A pixel tag can collect information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the tag appears; the URL of the page on which the pixel tag appears; the time (and length of time) the page containing the pixel tag was viewed; the type of browser that retrieved the pixel tag; and the identification number of any cookie previously placed by that server on your computer. We may use pixel tags, either provided by us or by our third party advertisers such as Google and Facebook.
We also may allow certain analytic services and providers of applications used on PutGunsInSafeHands.org (e.g. sharing buttons) to collect Non-Personally Identifiable information by placing cookies on the Services that will track certain performance of our site, such as, web traffic, click-throughs, etc., this will assist us and our service providers in better understanding the interests of our users and to better serve those interests.
We may use other companies under agreements with us to serve advertisements when you visit and use PutGunsInSafeHands.org. These companies may collect and use Non-Personally Identifiable Information during your visits to the Services and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie, a third party web beacon and/or pixel tags to collect this information. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice in general and the options that you have, including your option or to opt-out of this type of advertising, you can visitwww.networkadvertising.org. These cookies, web beacons and pixel tags do not collect any personal information from your computer, such as your e-mail address. Other companies’ use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not this one. Advertisers or other companies do not have access to Putgunsinsafehands.org cookies.
Targeted Advertising Putgunsinsafehands.org
In order to serve offers and advertisements that may be interest to our users, we may display targeted advertisements on the site based on Personally Identifiable Information provided by our users, including zip code and profile. We do not provide this Personally Identifiable Information to our advertisers when you interact with such an advertisement. However, please note that the advertisers (including ad serving companies) may determine based on their own analysis that a user who interacts with an advertisement targeted by Putgunsinsafehands.org may fit into a certain demographical category; for example, an advertiser may determine that men ages 25-34 are interacting with a certain content on Putgunsinsafehands.org from a particular geographic area. You acknowledge that any information collected by such advertisers or advertising networks – and any options that you have with the use of such information – would be handled in accordance with the disclosures provided above in this section.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Putgunsinsafehands.org does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or nonaffiliated companies except to provide products or services you’ve requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:
We provide the information to trusted partners who work on behalf of or with Putgunsinsafehands.org under confidentiality agreements. These are companies that Putgunsinsafehands.org may operate co-branded websites or web-pages to expand their services using Putgunsinsafehands.org Services.

These other sites may place their own cookies on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information. Putgunsinsafehands.org may present links in a format that enables us to understand whether they have been followed. We use this information to understand and improve the quality of Putgunsinsafehands.org’s search technology.

Social Media Plug-ins
Social media plug-ins of social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Yahoo, Windows and Google plus (among others) are integrated on Putgunsinsafehands.orgs’ website. Where Putgunsinsafehands.org sites contain a plug-in to a social network, these are clearly marked (e.g. with a Facebook button). If you chose to click on one of these buttons or links, your browser connects directly to the servers of the relevant social network. The social network directly transmits the content of the plugin to your browser. If you are registered on the relevant social network and logged into your respective account, the social network receives the information that the web page was used by you. If you interact with a social network plug-in (e.g. you press the Facebook “Like” –feature, the Twitter “Tweet this” feature and Google plus “1+” button or equivalent) or drop a comment on the appropriate web page, the corresponding information is directly transmitted to the relevant social network from your browser. If you are not registered with the social network or you are logged out before you visit Putgunsinsafehands.org’s website, there is the possibility that at least your IP address will be submitted to and stored by the social network. If you interact with us through a social media platform, plug-in etc. then you may be permitting us to have on-going access to some limited information from your social network profile (such as name, email address, photo, gender, location, the people/sites you follow etc.).
