If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, do not use the mobile application or give us any of your information.

The application is not intended for or marketed to children under the age of 13, or in some cases, even older. If you live in France, Germany, or the Netherlands, you must be at least 16. Please check your local law for the age of digital consent. If you don’t meet these age requirements, you may not use the Services.

Collection of Personal Identification Information and Non-personal Identification Information

Personal Identification Information

We collect personal identification information when you register for the mobile application and to obtain certain services offered on the mobile application. Personal identification information means any information which can be used to identify an individual, and may include, but is not limited to, name, email address, mailing address, phone number, or social media profile information that you choose to share with us. We work to limit our requests for personal identification information to information we believe is reasonably necessary to achieve our purposes as describes in the “Information Use” section below. Personal identification information is only collected from users when they submit it voluntarily. Any personal identification information you transmit to the mobile application will be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Further, GoSnow does not use personal identification information to make any automated decisions.

Location Information

GoSnow offers location-enabled services, for example to (i) locate the nearest ski resort to you, (ii) locate instructors near to you, or (iii) locate other users near to you. If you use those location-enabled services, GoSnow may receive information about your actual location (such as GPS signals sent by a mobile device) or information that can be used to approximate a location (such as a cell ID)., IP address or WiFi). GoSnow collects location information when the GoSnow mobile application is running in the foreground (app open and on-screen). You will have the option to disable collection and use of location information. However, doing so may prevent you from using some features of the Services, or limit the function of some features.

We collect transaction details related to your use of our Services, including the type of Services you requested or provided, your order details, date and time the service was provided, amount charged, and payment method.

Non-personal Identification Information

When you visit the mobile application we also collect non-personally identifiable information. Non-personal identification information is data that cannot be used to specifically identify or contact you, such as demographic information (such as age or gender) or usage information (such as the areas of the application you visit or platform used).

If we advertise, we (or third parties) may use certain data collected on our Services to show you advertisements on other sites or applications.

Mobile Device IDs

We use mobile device IDs (the unique identifier assigned to a device by the manufacturer), or Advertising IDs (for iOS 6 and later), instead of cookies, to recognize you. We do this to store your preferences and track your use of our app. Unlike cookies, device IDs cannot be deleted, but Advertising IDs can be reset in “Settings” on your iPhone. Ad companies also use device IDs or Advertising IDs to track your use of the app, track the number of ads displayed, measure ad performance and display ads that are more relevant to you. Analytics companies use device IDs to track information about app usage.

We may also supplement the information we collect with information from other sources to assist us in evaluating and improving our application and services.
