We at InnSeason Resorts and the family of companies known as InnSeason
Resorts and Southern Peaks, (referred to as " InnSeason Resorts
," "we," "us," or "our") recognize the importance
of protecting the privacy of certain information ("Information") collected
about our customers and prospective customers (referred to as "Customers,"
"you" or "your"). This privacy statement discloses what information
we gather, how we use it, and how to correct or change it. At InnSeason Resorts
, it is our intention to give you an understanding about how we collect
your Information and the use we make of it in the course of our business.
To that end, InnSeason Resorts gathers two types of information
about Customers: data that Customers provide through optional, voluntary registration
on our sites; and data InnSeason Resorts gathers through aggregated
tracking, mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. Such information enables
us to tailor our content to fit Customers' needs better and to help our advertisers
understand our audience. Because InnSeason Resorts derives its
revenue mainly from advertising and e-commerce, providing such aggregated data is
essential to keeping our service free to Customers. However, be assured that
InnSeason Resorts will not disclose personal Information to third parties
to you when the Information is submitted.
How does InnSeason Resorts collect Information?
· Optional registration
We collect information by specifically requesting it from you. Generally this occurs
when you register at a site or request information or a service. Usually, the
InnSeason Resorts sites and InnSeason Resorts service
partners use your information to operate the sites and to deliver services.
InnSeason Resorts sites also use your information to inform you about
other products or services available from InnSeason Resorts and
· Usage tracking
Use of Internet Protocol ("IP")Addresses
An IP address is a unique number that is automatically assigned to your computer
whenever you're surfing the Internet so that your computer can be identified by
the main computers, known as "Web servers," that "serve up"
InnSeason Resorts and/or its affiliates collect IP addresses for
the purposes of system administration, to report aggregated information to our advertisers,
and to audit the use of our site. When Customers request pages from InnSeason
Resorts and/or its affiliates' sites, our servers log the Customers'
IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable,
which means that a Customer's session will be logged, but the Customer will remain
anonymous to us. However, this Web site may offer a “live chat” feature that will
allow you to communicate almost instantly with a ISR representative. If this Web
site offers a live chat feature and if you access that feature, we may link your
Personal Information (e.g., name, address, email address) with the IP address to
provide you with the appropriate services, including, but not limited to, answering
questions regarding your account. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a
Customer when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our site terms
of use or terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers or others.
