Advertising and Ad Blocking Software:
It's a simple fact of the way that web sites work that web site owners have data as to how many people visited
our site, what area of the country they are from, what search engine they came from to find us, and various non-personnally
identifiable stuff like that. We can also get a list of IP addresses of everyone that comes to our site, although we can't really
do much with it unless there is some legal reason for investigators to track you down (such as if you have been hacking web sites).
I occassionally look at the non-personnally identifiable data to learn about SelectHike's site demographics, this helps to
refine what types of information I present based on user interest.
SelectHikes has NO access to information that you submit if you order something through our Amazon.com affiliate site,
that information is for amazon.com's eyes only.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website.
These companies may use information (NOT including your name, address, email address, or telephone number)
about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by
these companies, click here.
This web site DOES NOT have pop up ads, animated flashing ads, "you have just won $1,000,000" ads, or any of that garbage.
SelectHikes has ads from real small business owners that want to help you enjoy your time in the mountains, plain and simple.
So do all of us a favor and turn off the ad-blocking software. This site cannot exist if everyone blocks advertisements,
they are what allow me to provide this information to you free of charge. If you happen to go to a web site that bothers
you with pop up ads and other garbage, don't go to that web site anymore, and send them a complaint via email if you want,
plain and simple. THAT IS THE BEST AD BLOCKING THERE IS.
