Information Collection and Use
Fredericksburg Area Tourism (FAT) is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. FAT will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. FAT relies on information supplied by our tourist-related businesses and cannot guarantee accuracy. FAT collects information from our users at several different points on our website. A listing on this site does not constitute a recommendation from the FAT office.
We request information from the user on our order form (for instance, when a user orders a Visitor Guide or a Pass To Historic Fredericksburg). Here a user must provide contact information (like name and shipping address). This information is used to fill customer's orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.
FAT uses IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that FAT is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Website.
Surveys & Contests
From time to time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
