The information collected during the use of telesales may be merged with personal information you have previously shared with this Web site and is used in accordance with this Privacy Statement.

Without this relationship, Revenue Avenue could not provide its service to you. These uses of personal information are primary to the operation of the site.

Control of your Personal Information

 As part of your participation in any of TheCampingSource services, TheCampingSource allows you to elect to receive certain information and e-mail from TheCampingSource and its service partners. There are two types of information sent to TheCampingSource, customers: 1) account specific information; and, 2) promotional and customer feedback information.

Account specific communications include information that is essential for the TheCampingSource service to operate properly. This includes the initial welcome mail describing features and guides to a particular service. It also includes any communications describing any changes or updates to a particular service or billing schedule. Because account specific communications are essential to providing the customer with the most current information on TheCampingSource services these types of communications will be sent to all TheCampingSource customers when appropriate. These types of communications are considered an essential part of the service for which you have signed-up for and you will not be able to unsubscribe from such mailings.

Promotional and customer feedback information includes special promotional offers, sweepstakes, contests, and/or customer surveys. For this type of information, the customer has the ability to opt-in or opt-out from receiving this type of information. The customer also has the ability to change their opt-in/out preferences at any time, either by changing their personal information, described in the next section, or by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each mailing.

Please be aware that this Privacy Statement and the choices you make on this site will not necessarily apply to personal information you may have provided to TheCampingSource in the context of other, separately operated, products or services.
