This Privacy Notice explains how MidwayUSA collects, uses and discloses information about you when you visit or conduct transactions through our websites, and other online products and services that link to this Privacy Notice (collectively, the "Services”), contact our customer service team, engage with us on social media) or when you otherwise interact with us, such as via email or through live chat.

We may change this Privacy Notice from time to time.  If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of the notice and, in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our homepage or sending you a notification). Please read this Privacy Notice carefully to understand our practices regarding your Personal Information. We encourage you to review the Privacy Notice whenever you access the Services or otherwise interact with us to stay informed about our information practices and the choices available to you. In addition, please review the Terms of Service that apply to your use of the Service. By using our Service, you certify you are over the age of 18 and you consent to our Privacy Notice and agree to our Terms of Service.

What Information Does MidwayUSA Collect?

Information You Provide to Us

We collect information you provide directly to us, for example, when you create an account, participate in any interactive features of the Services, fill out a form or survey, leave a product review, participate in a contest or promotion, make a purchase, apply for a job, communicate with us via third-party social media sites, request customer support or otherwise communicate with us.  The types of Personal Information we may collect include your name, email address, postal address, phone number, fax number, credit card information and any other information you choose to provide.

When we say “Personal Information” we mean any information that identifies an individual, such as (but not limited to) an individual’s name, email address, postal address, device-specific information, and log information (as described below). Any information that does not, on its own, identify an individual person is considered and treated as non-personal information. When non-personal information is combined with other information so that it links or is reasonably linkable to an individual, we treat this information as Personal Information. MidwayUSA does not sell Personal Information.

Web beacons (also known as “pixel tags” or “clear GIFs”) are electronic images that may be used in our Services or in our emails to help deliver cookies, count visits, serve ads and understand usage and campaign effectiveness. For more information about cookies and how to disable them, please see the What Choices Do You Have Regarding Your Information? section below.

Information We Collect from Other Sources

We may obtain information from third-party sources and combine that with information we collect through our Services. For example, we may collect information about you from third parties, including but not limited to our business partners you use to access or link to the Services, third-party websites through which you enter contests and promotions, and publicly available sources.

Social Sharing Features

The Services may offer social sharing features and other integrated tools (such as the Facebook “Like” button), which let you share actions you take on our Services with other media, and vice versa. Your use of such features enables the sharing of information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings you establish with the entity that provides the social sharing feature.
