        1. Web Server Logs.

          When you visit our Website, we may track information to administer the site and analyze its usage. Examples of information we may track include:

      1. Use of Cookies

        Range Dog Publishing Inc. may use cookies to personalize or enhance your user experience. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a Web Server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

        One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.

        Range Dog Publishing Inc. reserves the right to share aggregated site statistics with partner companies, but does not allow other companies to place cookies on our website unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value (such as merging into GatewayToSedona.com, or RangeDogPub.com a site that relies on third-party cookies).

        You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on our Website.

      2. Personal Information Users

        Visitors to our website can register to purchase services. When you register, we will request some personal information such as name, address, email, telephone number or facsimile number, account number and other relevant information. If you are purchasing a service, we will request financial information. Any financial information we collect is used only to bill you for the services you purchased. If you purchase by credit card, this information may be forwarded to your credit card provider. For other types of registrations, we will ask for the relevant information. You may also be asked to disclose personal information to us so that we can provide assistance and information to you. For example, such data may be warranted in order to provide online technical support and troubleshooting.

        We will not disclose personally identifiable information we collect from you to third parties without your permission except to the extent necessary including:

        • To fulfill your service requests for services.
        • To protect ourselves from liability,
        • To respond to legal process or comply with law, or
        • In connection with a merger, acquisition, or liquidation of the company.

  1. USE OF WEB BEACONS OR GIF FILES

    GatewayToSedona.com, or RangeDogPublishing.com Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons – sometimes also called single-pixel gifs – that allow Range Dog Publishing Inc. to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. Range Dog Publishing Inc. may include Web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.

    Some of these Web beacons may be placed by third party service providers to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications. These Web beacons may be used by these service providers to place a persistent cookie on your computer. This allows the service provider to recognize your computer each time you visit certain pages or emails and compile anonymous information in relation to those page views, which in turn enables us and our service providers to learn which advertisements and emails bring you to our website and how you use the site. Range Dog Publishing Inc. prohibits Web beacons from being used to collect or access your personal information.

    We will provide you with the means to ensure that personally identifiable information in your web account file is correct and current. You may review this information by contacting us by sending an email to our support attendant -- info@ rangedogpub.com.

About the Gateway To Sedona Team

Victoria Oldham and Tim Ernster, Gateway To Sedona Publishers.

Gateway To Sedona is a product of Range Dog Publishing, Inc, a local Arizona publishing company owned and managed by Tim Ernster and Victoria Oldham. 

Tim Ernster served as City Manager for Sedona, Arizona up until his retirement in February 2015. He is currently the co-owner of Range Dog Publishing Inc, focusing on the tourism industry in Sedona and Northern Arizona.

Prior to serving as City Manager of Sedona, he was City Manager for Bullhead City and Lake Havasu City and Deputy City Manager for the City of Glendale, Arizona. As Deputy City Manager he was responsible for the Community Development Group, which includes: Planning; Engineering; Building Safety; and Transportation.  Also, he has managed Finance, Information Systems, Budget, Human Resources, Marketing and Libraries.  He has 39 years of experience in local government in five different cities in Arizona. During early 2000, he served as Interim City Manager of Avondale, Arizona, as a loaned executive, while the city conducted its recruitment for a permanent manager.

Tim has taught for Golden Gate University for over twenty years, and has conducted seminars and training on a wide variety of topics.  Those topics include diversity, ethics, leadership, city management, municipal finance and municipal goal setting.  He has been an instructor and developer of course materials for the Certified Public Manager Program (CPM) offered through Arizona State University, and has presented at the Municipal Clerks Institute and the Municipal Fire Institute.

Tim currently serves as a member of the Sedona Fire District Governing Board.

He holds a Master's Degree in Public Affairs from Arizona State University and a B.S. Degree from Northern Arizona University.  He has served on the CPM Advisory Board for Arizona State University.

Victoria Oldham (Vicky) has been a professional artist her entire career.  For over 30 years, she and her late husband, Chuck Oldham, were product designers for the fine giftware industry, including their own porcelain sculpture line.  Many top selling designs were created by the Oldham team, including best sellers for Franklin Mint, Lenox Collections, Danbury Mint, and others. Their own collection of studio-made limited edition porcelains was carried by fine jewelers such as Bailey Banks and Biddle (formerly of Zale Corporation) as well as by upscale boutiques and shops nationwide.

Prior to her years in giftware design, Victoria was a biological illustrator and exhibits designer at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia, specifically assigned to malacology research, the study of mollusks and their shells (seashells).

In addition to product design for the giftware industry, Victoria worked as a technical manual designer/writer for a remote monitoring product line, and a graphic artist and website designer for several biotech companies (Althea Technologies, Chembridge, Agennix, and Acadia Pharmaceuticals).  She also received recognition by the BioCommunications Association BioImages Awards for original illustrations created for her clients.

In 2002, Victoria conceived and developed GatewayToSedona.com. By 2004, the tourism portal, designed to showcase feature stories and articles with photos in "photo-essay style" was among the top 3 representing and promoting Sedona, Arizona.

Victoria received fine art and graphic design training at Temple University's Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, with supporting biology and science courses at Temple's downtown campus.

Victoria is currently a member of the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA). She also hopes to do more painting in the future. See her oil painting at Fine Art America.

In her spare time, Victoria enjoys songwriting and playing guitar/singing.
