Terms of Use

By accessing this Website, you consent to these terms and conditions and to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the Commonwealth of Virginia in all disputes arising out of such access.

If any of these terms are deemed invalid or unenforceable for any reason, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be severed from these terms and the remaining terms continue to apply. My failure to enforce any provision of these Terms and Conditions is not a waiver of such provisions and does not affect the validity of these Terms and Conditions, or the right thereafter to enforce each and every provision.

Privacy Statement

I am committed to protecting your privacy.

  • Only the Website owner may use information collected from members or individual visitors
  • This Website does not collect and store any personal financial information

I will investigate any attempt to gain unauthorized access to personally-identifiable information with a view to prosecuting and/or taking civil proceedings to recover damages against those responsible.

Product Endorsements

References to any specific commercial firm, commercial product, process, or service by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, or otherwise, do not constitute or imply any endorsement, recommendation, or favoring by the Acme Treadway Company trail crew, its members, or its leadership.


Member records are confidential and will not be divulged to any third party, unless I am legally required to do so to by appropriate authorities. AcmeTreadway.Net will not sell, share, or rent our member list or your personal information to any third party or use your e-mail address for unsolicited mail. Any e-mail sent by the Website owner will only be in connection with official transactions, such as site status notices, member registrations, or query responses.


The information on this Website is provided only on an “as-is” basis.

Unless otherwise stated, the content featured on this Website is intended for personal, recreational use of visitors and to promote the activities of the Acme Treadway Company, a volunteer trail crew sponsored by the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club. You are solely responsible for evaluating the fitness for a particular purpose of any content available through this site.

Log Files

I use Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to administer the site. IP addresses are not linked to personally-identifiable information. This information is not shared with third parties and is used only by the Website owner on a need-to-know basis.


This Website uses “cookies” to differentiate between visitors and to control the use of data. Non-registered site visitors, for example, are not allowed access to the members list or to use functions allocated specifically to registered site members, such as the ability to write and publish articles, calendar events, and external links.

When you login to this site, the system places a cookie on your computer that authenticates you as a registered member; the code only identifies the IP address of your computer or laptop, not you by name or physical location. This Website does not allow you to make this cookie “permanent.”

This Website does not, and will not, use tracking cookies.
