We collect no personal information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us by sending us Email, participating in a survey, or completing an on-line form. You may choose not to contact us by Email, participate in a survey or to provide any personal information using an on-line form.

If personal information is requested on the website or volunteered by the user, state law and the federal Privacy Act of 1974 may protect it. However, this information becomes a public record once you provide it and may be subject to public inspection and copying if not protected by federal or state law.

If you believe your personal/private information is being used for a purpose other than what was intended when submitted, you may contact Patagonia Wild Waters as shown in the Contact Information Section of this statement.

Users are cautioned that the collection of personal information requested from or volunteered by children on-line or by email will be treated the same as information given by an adult, and may be subject to public access.


Public Access to Information
In Argentina, laws exist to ensure private information keeps private and the public does not have a right to access appropriate records and information possessed by us. At the same time, there are exceptions like the government right to access some private records that serve various needs including the public defense. Both state and federal laws provide exceptions.

All of the information collected at this site is a private record that may be subject to inspection and copying by the government, unless an exemption in law exists.

In the event of a conflict between this Privacy Notice and the Public Records Act or other law governing the website disclosure of records, the Public Records Act or other applicable law will control.
