FP is committed to protecting the privacy needs of children, and we encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in their children’s online activities and interests. FP does not intentionally collect information from minors, and FP does not target its website to children. Rather, we encourage parents to know what their children are involved with and to get involved in those same activities as spending time with your children is good for you and even better for them. Despite the fact that we operate a website, we suggest you get your children offline and outdoors including getting them involved in the shooting sports as such activities foster respect for nature and life.

Types of Information FP Collects
Non-Personal Information: Non-personal information is data about usage and service operation that is not directly associated with a specific personal identity. FP may collect and analyze non-personal information to evaluate how visitors use our website.
Aggregate Information: FP may gather aggregate information, which refers to information your computer automatically provides to us and that cannot be tied back to you as a specific individual. Examples include referral data, the websites you visited just before and just after our site, the pages viewed, time spent at the FP website, and Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to an individual’s computer whenever they access the Internet. For example, when you request a page from one of our sites, our servers log your IP address to create aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns and for purposes of system administration.
Log Files: Every time an individual requests or downloads a file from FP’s website, data about those events and the IP address that preformed them are saved in a log file. FP may use this information to analyze trends, administer the website, track users’ movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use or for other business purposes.
Personal Information: Personal information is information that is associated with an individual’s name or personal identity. FP uses personal information to better understand a customer’s needs and interests and to provide them with better service. On some of FP’s webpages, a user may be able to request information, subscribe to mailing lists, participate in online discussions, collaborate on documents, provide feedback, submit information into registries, or register for events. The types of personal information you provide on these pages may include name, address, phone number, e-mail address, user IDs, or passwords.
How We Use Your Information
FP may use non-personal data that is aggregated for reporting about FP’s website usability, performance, and effectiveness. It may be used to improve the experience, usability, and content of our site.
In keeping with our open process, FP will likely maintain publicly accessible archives for the majority of our activities. Thus, for example, if you post your email address to any of FP’s-hosted public forums or place it on parts of the website that is publicly accessible or viewable, it may result in your email address becoming part of the publicly accessible archives.
Anonymous users are allowed to post content and/or participate in forum discussions. In such a case, since no user name can be associated with such a user, the IP address number of a user may used as an identifier. As such, when posting content or messages to FP’s site anonymously, you consent that your IP address may be revealed to the public.
Please remember that any information, including personal information, that you disclose in public areas of our website, such as forums, message boards, and news groups, becomes public information that others may collect, circulate, and use. Because we do not control the acts of others, you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose information about yourself or others in any public forum.
If you do not want your personal information collected and used by FP, please do not visit the FP website or use any of FP’s services.
FP makes every effort to protect personal information on the website, including using firewalls and other security measures on its servers. No server, however, is 100% secure, and you should take this into account when submitting personal or confidential information about yourself on any website, including this one. You alone are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please use great care whenever discussing personal information on FP’s website.
From time to time FP may email electronic newsletters, announcements, surveys, contests or other information. If you prefer not to receive these communications, you may opt out by following the directions provided within the electronic newsletters and announcements.
