By responding to these surveys you make your email address available to the advertiser.

We offer various financial incentives. For example, we provide discounts and other benefits to members of our loyalty programs and we may offer you a discount if you sign up for our email newsletters or participate in some surveys we offer. When you participate in a financial incentive, we collect personal information from you, such as identifiers like your name and email address and commercial information like your purchasing habits. You may opt into a financial incentive by following the instructions provided at sign-up, and you may withdraw from the incentive at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If you withdraw from our loyalty program, Expedition Perks, you permanently forfeit any points or rewards you have accrued. Because your enrollment in Expedition Perks is tied to your accounts with Backcountry and Competitive Cyclist, your withdrawal from the Expedition Perks program will result in the termination of those accounts. In some cases, additional terms and conditions may govern a financial incentive program, which we will provide to you when you sign up. The value of your personal information is reasonably related to the value of the discount or benefit presented to you.
