Blobfish Activity Hub is an online service that provides recommendations for summer camps, track-out camps, activities and more.
Our website, mobile properties, and related applications (collectively, our â€œWebsiteâ€) are owned and operated by Blobfish LLC.
We understand that providing information online involves a great deal of trust on your part. We take this trust very seriously, and make
it a high priority to ensure the security and confidentiality of the personal information you provide to us when you visit our Website or
use our services. Before submitting your personal information to us, please read this Policy carefully to learn about our privacy practices.
By visiting Blobfishâ€™s website, www.goBlobfish.com, or using a Blobfish application
(an â€œApplicationâ€ or â€œAppâ€) on a mobile phone, tablet, or similar device (a â€œDeviceâ€) or in connection with other sites or services, you
are accepting the practices described herein.
We receive and store any information you enter on our Website or give us in any other way. This includes information that can identify you
("personal information"), including your first and last name, telephone number, postal and email addresses, user name and password, and billing
information (such as your credit card number, cardholder name, and card expiration date). We may also request information about your camp and activity
plans and preferences. You can choose not to provide information to us, but in general some information about you is required in order for you to
receive relevant offerings from Blobfish and its partners and enjoy other benefits of being a registered member. For example,
only registered members are able to post camp and activity provider reviews, participate in discussion forums, email Blobfish
content to themselves and others, access members-only newsletters and camp and activity planning content, and enter surveys, contests, or
sweepstakes. In addition, some information is also required in order for you to ask us a question or initiate other transactions on our site.
Information About Others.
You will have the opportunity to provide contact and registration-related information for other people through our Website. If you make a
registration for someone else through Blobfish, you will need to submit that individualâ€™s personal information. You must
obtain the consent of other individuals prior to providing us with their personal information, as any access to view or modify their information
will be available only through your account.
Information from Other Sources.
We also may periodically obtain both personal and non-personal information about you from affiliated entities, business partners and other
independent third-party sources and add it to other information about you. For example, if you visit Blobfish by â€œclicking
throughâ€ from a site operated by one of our business partners, and you have registered with that partner, then information about you that you have
provided to that partner may be shared with us, such as contact information and demographic information. As another example, if you access third party
services, such as social media services, through our Website or before coming to our Website, we may collect information such as your user name,
password, and other information made available to us through those services. We will work with our existing partners and potential future
partners to improve and personalise your use of our Website in accordance with the practices outlined in this section and Policy.
We automatically collect some information from your computer or Device when you visit Blobfish. For example, we will collect
session data, including your IP address, Web browser software, and referring website. We also may collect information about your online activity,
such as content viewed, pages visited, and searches and/or reservations facilitated or made. One of our goals in collecting this automatic information
is to help us understand the interests and preferences of our users and customise your user experience.
If you register with third-party suppliers facilitated by Blobfish, we will collect payment information from you, including your
credit card number, cardholder name, expiration date, authentication code, and billing address. We will securely transmit this information to
the supplier of the travel reservation to complete the transaction. Please note that the supplier processes your payment, not Blobfish,
unless otherwise specified. You agree to review and be bound by the supplierâ€™s policies and procedures before making a reservation through
Location Information and Other Information from Devices.
When you use an Application on a Device, we will collect and use information about you in generally similar ways and for similar purposes as when
you use the Blobfish website. In addition, we may collect information about your location if you have instructed your Device to send such
information to the Application via the privacy settings on that Device, or if you have uploaded photos tagged with location information. We may use
the location information collected from your Device or photos to enhance your use of the Application by providing you with relevant content and
contextual advertising. For example, we may use your location to show you reviews of camps or activities near you when you are traveling. You can
change the privacy settings of your Device at any time, in order to turn off the functionality to share location information with the Application
and/or the functionality to tag your photos with location information. Please note that turning off location sharing may affect certain features of
our App. If you have any queries about the privacy settings of your Device, we suggest you contact the manufacturer of your Device or your mobile
service provider for help.

The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers should tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser

Our sites also may use Web beacons (also known as clear gifs, pixel tags or Web bugs), which are tiny graphics with a unique identifier,
similar in function to cookies, that are placed in the code of a Web page. We use Web beacons to monitor the traffic patterns of
users from one page within our sites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our site from an
online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, and to improve site performance. We also may allow our service providers to use Web
beacons to help us understand which emails have been opened by recipients and to track the visitor traffic and actions on our site. This
helps us measure the effectiveness of our content and other offerings.
Display of Advertising/Your Choices.
Data collected to serve you with relevant advertising
Blobfish and its affiliated websites are committed to providing you with relevant content and information across our sites. To do this,
we may collect information about your camp and activity related searches and other site activities and use this information to serve
you with ads on our sites or elsewhere online that match your apparent interests. So, for example, if you search for a softball program,
you may see ads related to softball equipment.
We do not share your personal information (such as email addresses) with unaffiliated third parties so they can serve you with advertisements.
Data collected by business partners and ad networks to serve you with relevant advertising
Many of the advertisements you see on the Blobfish sites are served by Blobfish or its service providers.
But we also allow third parties to collect information about your online activities through cookies and other technologies. These third parties
include (1) business partners, who collect information when you view or interact with one of their advertisements on our sites, and (2) advertising
networks, who collect information about your interests when you view or interact with one of the advertisements they place on many different websites
on the Internet. The information gathered by these third parties is used to make predictions about your characteristics, interests or
preferences and to display advertisements on our sites and across the Internet tailored to your apparent interests.
Please note that we do not have access to or control over cookies or other technologies these third parties may use to collect information
Response to Do Not Track signals
Your web browser may transmit a â€œDo Not Trackâ€ (â€œDNTâ€) signal to Blobfish and other websites. Because of differences in web browsersâ€™
default settings and the manner in which browsers incorporate DNT signals, it is sometimes unclear to site operators whether site
visitors have selected the DNT setting themselves, or whether they are aware that they have a choice in determining the setting.
Blobfish does not currently respond to DNT signals. Once the Internet industry has settled on standards related to this issue and
Blobfish recognises such standards, we may reevaluate this approach.
