Our Commitment to your Privacy
The following information includes Chicopee Ski Club’s policy for using our website. Chicopee Ski Club’s (will be referred to hereafter as “Chicopee”) policies and guidelines will be updated periodically and it is your responsibility to read, understand, and abide by them.
Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us and we want to make your online experience both satisfying and safe.
Because we gather certain types of information about Chicopee website users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
Chicopee gathers various types of information about our website users as described below:
1. Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions to enter profile information and preferences which allow users to receive subscribed email messages.
2. Chicopee gathers tracking data derived mainly from tallying page views and related statistics throughout the site. Because we may derive certain revenues from sponsorships and advertising, providing such aggregated data may assist us in providing customer related benefits. Also, this information allows us to better tailor our content to users’ needs, it help’s our advertisers and sponsors be more effective, and better relates the demographics of our audience. We make available the opportunity for sponsors/advertisers to be included in subscribed email messages most pertinent to their needs. We do not track the usage patterns of individual users. Advertisers/sponsors will never know that a specific user clicked their ad. We will not disclose any information about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public. Under no circumstances does Chicopee divulge any information about an individual user to a third party, unless expressly permitted by the user.
Chicopee gathers user information in the following processes:
Optional Voluntary Submission
We offer the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users:
1. Email Subscriber lists - In order to gain access and participate in some areas of the Chicopee website or emails, individuals must first join the subscriber list by submitting their first and last name, email address and personal preferences in order to create an individual member profile. Email addresses may also be obtained through various means including membership applications, lesson applications (via telephone or internet) or contest material etc. which may include email contact information expressly provided by the individual.
2. Surveys - Chicopee may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target content to our audience. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our sponsors, advertisers and partners. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party unless expressly permitted by the user.
Limiting Use, Disclosure and Retention of Personal Information
Chicopee shall not use or disclose personal information for purposes other than those for which it was collected, except with the consent of the individual or as required by law.
Chicopee shall retain personal information only as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes or as required or permitted by law. Only Chicopee employees with a business need to know, or whose duties reasonably so require, are granted access to personal information about individuals. Chicopee shall maintain reasonable and systematic controls, schedules and practices for information and records retention and destruction which apply to personal information that is no longer necessary or relevant for the identified purposes or required or permitted by law to be retained. Such information shall be destroyed, erased or made anonymous. Chicopee shall protect personal information by security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information. Chicopee shall take appropriate and reasonable steps to protect personal information against such risks as loss or theft, unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, modification or destruction.
Being a family-friendly and family-focused resort, Chicopee will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.
Chicopee tracks user traffic patterns. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users.
Chicopee sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms users enter in our search functions, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our site users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
Use of Information
Chicopee uses information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience within our site, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the site or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.
Chicopee operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall, encryption and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.
Chicopee users may at any time opt-out, change or update profile information.
