     GoFishOhio is very respectful about the privacy concerns of the visitors to its sites
on the Internet. As a general policy, no personal information is automatically collected from
visitors to this site. However, certain non-personal information of visitors is recorded by the
standard operation of GoFishOhio(GoFishOhio/GFOTour.com) Internet servers.
This information is primarily used to provide an enhanced online experience for the visitor.
Information tracked includes the type of browser being used by the visitor (e.g., Netscape,
Internet Explorer), the type of operating system (e.g., Macintosh, Windows) in use by the
visitor and the domain name of the visitor's Internet service provider (e.g., Adelphia,
America Online, etc.). By having this information, web pages optimized for a particular
visitor's computer are automatically made available to that visitor.

    Other use of this information may include internal review of the number of visitors to
this site but only in an aggregate and non-personally-identifiable form. E-mail addresses
and other personally identifiable data about visitors to this site are known to GoFishOhio
only when voluntarily submitted by the user. GoFishOhio affiliated web sites that are
linked to this site and that engage in any additional information practices will explain those
practices at that site.

Use of IP Addresses
    An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever
you're surfing the Web. Web servers -- the big computers that "serve up" Web pages --
automatically identify your computer by its IP address.

    GoFishOhio collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, report
aggregate information, and to audit the use of our site. When Guests request pages from
GoFishOhio sites, our servers log the Guests' IP addresses. We do not normally link IP
addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a user's session will be
logged, but the user remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify
a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Acceptable Use Policy or
Terms of Service or to protect our service, site, customers, or others.

    Some services within GoFishOhio, such as the fishing message boards, may display
IP addresses along with the message poster's name and message. Please review each
service prior to use and only use those that disclose information you're comfortable sharing.

Use of Cookies
What are cookies? Cookies are pieces of information that a Web site transfers to an
individual's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make Web-surfing easier for
you by saving your preferences while you're at our site. We never save passwords or credit
card information in cookies. The use of cookies is an industry standard -- you'll find them at
most major Web sites.

    By showing how and when Guests use a site, cookies can help us to see which areas are
popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such
data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked
with cookies. We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our
users needs.

    GoFishOhio has two primary uses for these cookies. First, we use them to specify
unique preferences. Secondly, we use cookies to track user trends and patterns. This helps
us better understand and improve areas of the respective site that our users find valuable.
While both of these activities depend on the use of a cookie, visitors to any GoFishOhio
site always have the option of disabling cookies via their browser preferences.

    Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse
all cookies or to prompt you when a cookie is being sent. However, note that some parts of
the site may not function properly or may be considerably slower if you refuse cookies.

Links to Other Sites
Users should be aware that when they are on any GoFishOhio site, they could be
directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from our
pages that take you outside our service. These other sites may send their own cookies to
users, collect data, or solicit personal information.

    Please keep in mind that whenever you give out your personal information online ---
for example, via message boards or chat --- that information can be collected and used
by people you don't know. While GoFishOhio strives to protect their users' personal
information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose
freely online and you do so at your own risk.

    GoFishOhio policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the
Internet, and therefore beyond GoFishOhio's control, and is not to be applied in any
manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.

The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our
Guests is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission
of your information from your PC to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over
the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect
your personal information, GoFishOhio can't ensure or warrant the security of any
information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at
your own risk. We have systems in place to securely record and store your personal
information, and once we receive your transmission, we ensure its security on our systems.

A Special Note To Parents
Children must get permission from their parents before sending any information about
themselves (such as their names, E-mail addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet,
to GoFishOhio or to anyone else. GoFishOhio will not knowingly allow anyone under
the age of 13 to register with any of our corporate sites, to order Elk Publicatons services or
products online, or to access any features that require registration. GoFishOhio believes
that parents should supervise their children's online activities and consider using parental
control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a
kid-friendly online environment. These tools can also prevent children from disclosing online
their name, address, and other personal information without parental permission. For
additional information about parental control tools, please consult the "Consumer
Assistance" page of the Direct Marketing Association home page (www.the-dma.org).
