CoastalGuide does NOT interfere, tamper, read, or otherwise collect detailed information about our visitors' individual preferences by "clandestine" methods, such as reading cookies.
Once a visitor is referred to one of our sponsors' sites, any direct contact or business transacted between them remains solely their business and is not made part of ANY of our reports.
ALL detailed or personal information about our visitors is submitted voluntarily by them AFTER they have been repeatedly advised and given more than ample opportunity to review detailed disclosures about how the information submitted may be used. Except in the rare case of inadvertent omission, all CoastalGuide pages display the "legal & privacy" link at the bottom of the page.
CoastalGuide has been a leader in disclosing how the information is to be used. Though we are required to maintain a lengthy disclosure, we do not believe in digital fine print. Instead, we have always offered a short, comprehensive FAQ linked right from our input pages. We even post a stern email address advisory immediately beside that input field on the form.
