Your privacy is critically important to us. At terrain Races we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals. It is terrain Races’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, terrain Races collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. terrain Races’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how terrain Races’s visitors use its website.

terrain Races also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses when athlete’s register for a race and for users leaving comments on our site. terrain Races only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the registration system where the athlete signed up at.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to terrain Races’s websites choose to interact with terrain Races in ways that require terrain Races to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that terrain Races gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, when signing up for a race, terrain Races collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with terrain Races. terrain Races does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities, like registering for an event.

Aggregated Statistics

terrain Races may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, terrain Races may monitor the most popular posts on the site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. terrain Races may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, terrain Races does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

terrain Races discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on terrain Races’s behalf or to provide services available at terrain Races’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using terrain Races’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. terrain Races will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, terrain Races discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when terrain Races believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of terrain Races, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of terrain Races’s website, or if you’ve register for a terrain Races event and have supplied your email address, terrain Races may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with terrain Races and our events. We primarily use various blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. Each email communication will include a link to unsubscribe from future emails. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. terrain Races takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. terrain Races uses cookies to help terrain Races identify and track visitors, their usage of terrain Races website, and their website access preferences. terrain Races visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using terrain Races’s website, with the drawback that certain features of terrain Races’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If terrain Races, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that terrain Races goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of terrain Races may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by terrain Races and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Although most changes are likely to be minor, terrain Races may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in terrain Races’s sole discretion. terrain Races encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy.
