This Website provides Services for all Members, including Members under the age of 18, including but not limited to the ability to access our Blog, and other Services as defined in the Website Terms and Conditions. While we encourage users 13 years of age or older to participate appropriately in our Website and its Services, their privacy is important to us.

We still collect all information that you submit to us, including any personal information you submit through the Website, including but not limited to, signing up for our email newsletter. Whether or not you choose to provide personal information is entirely up to you. We may also track the domain address and/or IP address from which you visit the Website through cookies (see “Cookies” Section below).
Information We Collect
The information we gather enables us to personalize, improve and continue to operate the Services. In connection with certain aspects of the Services, we may request, collect and/or display some of your Personal Information. We collect the following types of information from our Members.
IP Address Information and Other Information Collected Automatically
We automatically receive and record information from your web browser or mobile device when you interact with the Services, including your IP address and cookie information. This information is used for fighting spam/malware and also to facilitate collection of data concerning your interaction with the Services (e.g., what links you have clicked on).
Generally, the Services automatically collect usage information, such as which parts of the Website you use and the number and frequency of visitors to the Website. We may use this data in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of data enables us, and third parties authorized by us to figure out how often individuals use parts of the Services so that we can analyze and improve them.
We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from us. We use this confirmation to improve our customer service.
We collect statistical information about how both unregistered users and Members, collectively, use the Services (“Aggregate Information”). Some of this information is derived from Personal Information. While Aggregate Information is not Personal Information, it may be tied back to you, or your mobile device.
Mustad Fishing adheres to the U.S. safe harbor policy privacy principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement.If you have any questions regarding this policy, contact Mustad Fishing through the Contact page or write to us at O.Mustad & Son AS, Raufossvegen 40, 2818 Gjøvik, Norway.

Information You Elect to Share
We share Aggregate Information with our partners, service providers and other persons with whom we conduct business. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners can understand how and how often people use our Services and their services or websites, which facilitates improving both their services and how our Services interface with them.

Moreover, if our assets, or substantially all of our assets, were acquired, or if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, member information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third-party.
