SNOWPASS is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy and we make it our highest priority to safeguard the confidentiality of any and all personal information you provide to us.
By using the SNOWPASS Services you are deemed to agree to our use of your information in accordance with this policy. We encourage you take a few minutes to read through it and contact us if you have any queries.
In the event of any changes to our approach, we will update this policy and post the latest version on this page – please check back regularly to ensure you remain up to date.
What kind of information does SNOWPASS collect?
Most information that we collect from you is linked to non-personal identifiers such as anonymous User IDs or device IDs and does not enable you to be identified as an individual in the offline world (“Non-Personal Information”). Such Non-Personal Information includes things like your browser type, the type of device you are using, access times, the website you arrived at SNOWPASS from, the features or functionality you selected whilst using the SNOWPASS Services and your general geographic location.
Where necessary, we will also collect information from you that does enable you to be identified as an individual in the offline world, such as your name, email address, or payment details (“Personal Information”). In order to minimise the impact on your privacy, we will never knowingly collect more Personal Data than is strictly necessary to perform the activities described in this policy.
How and when does SNOWPASS collect this information?
We collect information that you voluntarily provide to us during your use of the SNOWPASS Services. This can range from Non-Personal Information, such as the dates and desired destination, to the Personal Information you are required to submit when you wish to buy a SNOWPASS CARD via the SNOWPASS Services. Whether or not you provide us with this kind of information is always entirely under your control. Although, in the case of not providing the necessary personal data, the purchase and use of a SNOWPASS CARD cannot become effective.
In addition to information that you voluntarily provide to us, we also collect certain Non-Personal Information directly from you as you use the SNOWPASS Services, as well as indirectly where it is provided to us automatically by a third party application, social media site (such as Facebook or Twitter) or other website (such as a promotion partner) that you connect to the SNOWPASS Services from.
How does SNOWPASS use this information?
To deliver the SNOWPASS Services
We use your information to deliver the SNOWPASS Services and the specific features and functionality you request. This includes things like generating the search results that most accurately match your search criteria, storing your Personal Information to enable you to pre-fill future booking forms, facilitating the completion of any bookings with a third party supplier via the SNOWPASS Services, assisting you with post-booking issues, or emailing you newsletters or price alerts that you have selected to receive.
To optimise & personalise the SNOWPASS Services
To deliver appropriate advertising
We use Non-Personal Information, such as what you have searched for on the SNOWPASS Services or your general geographic location, to present you with relevant advertisements. For instance, we may use third party advertisement retargeting services to send you an advertisement related to destination you have searched for.
To better understand, improve and protect the SNOWPASS Services
We use information we collect about how users interact with the SNOWPASS Services in order to identify and correct faults, improve our services and inform business decisions, as well as for security and fraud-prevention purposes.
To generate aggregated datasets that inform our business and ski resort partners
We use information we collect about users to generate datasets of Non-Personal Information. These datasets allow us to generate helpful product insights. For instance, we can monitor demand for destinations to make sure the ski resort options our users want are available on the SNOWPASS Services.
To contact you
We use your information to contact you with confirmations, notifications or alerts you have requested, such as email newsletters or price alerts, or which are otherwise necessary for us to send to you in order to provide the SNOWPASS Services you have selected, such as details of any purchases you have made on the SNOWPASS platform. We may also notify you about any changes or updates to the SNOWPASS Services or to respond to communications you have sent us, such as via our customer service help centre or on social media.
Do any third parties collect information about me when I use the SNOWPASS Services?
In addition, third party advertisement services may collect Non-Personal Information from you as you use the SNOWPASS Services via cookies and other similar technologies. This information enables you to be served with relevant advertisements, both on the SNOWPASS Services and on third party websites and applications around the web.
When will SNOWPASS share your information with third parties?
Sharing Personal Information with third parties who process it only under SNOWPASS’s instruction
We share information relating to our users with selected third parties who perform services on our behalf and under our instruction. We ensure that any Third Party Processor which handles information on our behalf does so pursuant to contractual terms which require that the information is kept secure and, when that information contains any Personal Information, is processed in accordance with applicable data protection laws and used only as we have instructed and not for that Third Party Processors’ own purposes (unless you have explicitly consented to them doing so).
Third Party Processors may be located, or process your information, outside of the country in which you are based. Where our use of a Third Party Processor involves the transfer of Personal Data from within Europe to a location outside of the European Economic Area, we will put in place appropriate measures to ensure that the Personal Data is adequately protected in that location, most often by applying European Commission-approved standard contractual clauses and robust security checks.
Sharing your information with third parties for processing outside SNOWPASS’s control
We will share your Personal Information with third parties for processing outside SNOWPASS’s control and for their own purposes in the following three scenarios: (1) when you purchase a SNOWPASS CARD on the SNOWPASS platform, we must share information (including Personal Information) with partner ski resorts you visit for their standard verification and fraud-detection purposes, or to a third party contracted to provide those services on the ski resort’s behalf; (2) your personal data provided by SNOWPASS to the partner ski resorts visited, may also be used by them to promote their own ski resort or associated services, namely, but not only, for promotional campaigns, classes, rental of equipment and accommodation (3) when we run a promotion in conjunction with a partner for the purpose of sending promotional information.
Non-Personal Information, such as fully anonymised datasets containing aggregated SNOWPASS Services’ usage information or trend-level travel insights, may be shared by us with third parties. As described above, third party advertising businesses may collect Non-Personal Information from you via cookies and other tracking tools whilst using the SNOWPASS Services.
Disclosing information for legal and other reasons
We may disclose your information where necessary to enforce our Terms of Service or other agreements, or to a prospective buyer or ultimate buyer if SNOWPASS itself (or part of our business) is sold. We may also disclose your information if necessary, to prevent, detect or prosecute illegal or suspected illegal activities or to prevent other damage or in response to a legal action against us or to enforce our rights and claims.
How does SNOWPASS keep my Personal Information safe and secure?
We make the confidentiality and security of your Personal Information our highest priority and we limit access to it to only those SNOWPASS employees who need to come into contact with it in order to fulfil their role and enable the SNOWPASS Services to be provided to you.
Although we do our best to protect your Personal Information, the transmission of information via the Internet can never be completely secure and we are therefore unable to guarantee the security of the information which you share with us at your own risk.
Where does SNOWPASS store my information?
The information we collect from you is stored on secure servers in various locations around the world. However, any Personal Information we collect from you is only stored within servers located in either the USA or Europe. Regardless of location, we ensure that adequate technical and organisational measures are in place to protect the security of any information we store on our servers.
As explained above, third party advertisers will also collect Non-Personal Information from you using cookies and similar technologies for the purposes of serving you relevant advertisements both on the SNOWPASS Services and on other third-party platforms as you move around the web, including on different devices. You may be able to control how these technologies are applied to you via the settings in your browser or on your mobile’s operating system.
Do third party platforms comply with this policy?
The SNOWPASS Services contain links to third party websites and applications and may sometimes give you the option to export information to those platforms. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such third-party websites. When you leave or otherwise cease using the SNOWPASS Services or transfer your information from the SNOWPASS Services to a third-party platform, we encourage you to read the applicable privacy policies of each and every third-party platform that you allow to collect information from you.
SNOWPASS's advises about children
We encourage parents to monitor and supervise the on-line activities of their children and to consider using parental control tools available from on-line services and software manufacturers that help guarantee a child-friendly on-line environment. These tools help prevent children from disclosing their name, address, and other personal information without parental permission.
