How Your Information Is Handled

IP Address: Our internet server is not set up to track, collect, or distribute personal information about our visitors. It recognizes the visitor's home server and IP address, but not your e-mail address. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site. IP addresses are used to compile statistics concerning the number of visitors, page views, and requests for particular files. These aggregated statistics are used to improve our site and to provide better services to our visitors.


Registration Form: Our site's Registration Form requests visitors to give us minimal contact information (name and email address). Additional information, such as postal address, phone number, and demographic information is optional. We use information from the registration form to send you from time to time: the SkiEurope Report, other related information that we believe will be of interest to you, and information about our company. No information is ever sent to you unless you confirm to us that you wish to receive it. The contact information is also used to contact you when necessary to address any questions or problems with your request.


Brochure and Information Request Forms: Our site uses Information Request and Brochure Request forms for customers to request information, brochures, and other materials. We collect visitor's contact information in order to respond to information requests, and to fulfill brochure requests. The customer's contact information is also used to contact you when necessary to address any questions or problems with your request.


Proposal and Reservation Request Forms: Our site uses Proposal Request Forms for customers to request travel arrangement proposals and Reservation Request Forms for customers to request reservations. We collect visitor's contact information and the visitor's travel requirements and preferences in order to respond to these requests. We collect financial information (like credit card numbers) in order to complete the requested travel arrangements. Contact information from the proposal and reservation request forms is used to send requested travel arrangement proposals and confirmations to our customers. Contact information may be shared with our suppliers as necessary to reserve and confirm requested travel arrangements. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the user for confirmed travel arrangements. The customer's contact information is also used to contact you when necessary to address any questions or problems with your request.


Information Shared with Suppliers: As a necessary part of the reservation and confirmation process, we must share some of your personal information with our suppliers, such as airlines and hotels. Without confiding this information, the booking process is not possible. In our agreements with these suppliers, we have endeavored to obtain their commitment to abide by the conditions of our Privacy Policy. However, you should be aware that we do not have any control over, nor responsibility for, the uses that our suppliers may make of your personal information.


Online Surveys: Our Online Survey Forms ask visitors for contact information (like their email address) and demographic information (like their zip code, age, or income level). We use this data to tailor our visitor's experience at our site, showing them content that we think they might be interested in, and displaying the content according to their preferences. This information is shared with advertisers only on an aggregate, and never on an individual, basis.


Cookies: We use cookies to enable us to deliver content that is specific to your requirements and interests when you request us to do so. We use cookies to tailor our visitor's experience at our site, showing them content that we think they might be interested in, and displaying the content according to their preferences. Our use of cookies is never associated with any personal identifiers and will never be used to collect information that could identify a visitor.


Public Forums: We provide forums to enable our visitors to exchange information among themselves. Information that you post to these areas becomes public information and you should excise caution when disclosing any personal information.
