PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
RANCHWEB, a California corporation ("RANCHWEB"), owns and operates this website (the "Site"). We understand that when you provide information on the Site, you are trusting us to safeguard it and to use it only for the purposes of the Site. We take that responsibility seriously. RANCHWEB does not sell to third parties customer names or other private profile information from which customer names or identities can be discerned, and has no intention of doing so in the future. Any information you submit on the Site is kept within Gene Kilgore's RANCHWEB network and the RANCHWEB-affiliated companies ("affiliated companies" means entities that control, are controlled by or are under common control with RANCHWEB).
Notwithstanding the foregoing, in some cases RANCHWEB may disclose information to companies and individuals it employs to perform functions on its behalf; examples include hosting its web servers, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments and providing customer service. These companies and individuals will have access to your personal information as necessary to perform their functions, but they may not share that information with any other third party. Furthermore, we may disclose user information to government authorities and to other third parties when compelled to do so by governmental authorities, as required by law, including but not limited to in response to court orders and subpoenas. We may also disclose user information when we have reason to believe that someone is causing injury to or interference with our rights or property, other users of the Site, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.
The Site contains links to other websites over which RANCHWEB has no control. RANCHWEB is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of other websites to which you choose to link from the Site. Furthermore, when you contribute to a public area or feature of our Site, the information that you submit will be made available to the general public. RANCHWEB is not responsible for such public disclosure.
RANCHWEB takes reasonable steps to protect the security and integrity of all data that is collected. Although we work very hard to protect your privacy, due to the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle, we cannot guarantee that information, during transmission through the Internet, while stored on our system, or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers. If you contact us via email, you should be aware that your transmission might not be secure, and a third party could view such information. If you create an account on our Site, you are responsible for maintaining the strict confidentiality of your account password, and you will be responsible for any access to or use of the Site by you or any person or entity using your password, whether or not such access or use has been authorized by or on behalf of you, and whether or not such person or entity is your employee or agent. You agree to: (a) immediately notify RANCHWEB of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security; and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. It is your sole responsibility to control the dissemination and use of your password, control access to and use of your account, and notify RANCHWEB when you desire to cancel your account on this Site. We will not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the foregoing.

We respect and will continue to respect the privacy of RANCHWEB users.
With identity theft a continuing problem, it has become increasingly common for unauthorized individuals to send email messages to consumers, purporting to represent a legitimate company such as a bank or online merchant, requesting that the customer provide personal, often sensitive, information. Sometimes, the domain name of the email address from which the email appears to have been sent and the domain name of the website requesting such information appears to be the domain name of a legitimate, trusted company. In reality, such sensitive information is received by an unauthorized individual to be used for purposes of identity theft. This illegal activity has come to be known as "phishing."
If you receive an email or other correspondence requesting that you provide any sensitive information (including your Site password or credit card information) via email or to a website that does not seem to be affiliated with our Site, or that otherwise seems suspicious to you, please do not provide such information to such entity, and report all such requests to us.
