Privacy Policy

SkiGenie is a search engine that saves you time and provides quality recommendations. We search the web for the best skis and show you where to purchase them; and then you go directly to a supplier’s website to make your purchase. So, this means we do not take your credit card information and we do not take your hard earned money. Providing your personal information on SkiGenie is strictly voluntary. You do get some cool information and access to our proprietary recommendations.

Personally Identifiable Information

SkiGenie collects personally identifiable information (“PII”) that you provide to us. This includes (at your discretion) your name, email address and certain personal characteristics you submit when you choose to use SkiGenie. Our software uses the PII to personalize and manage the SkiGenie website for you. If you do decide to give us this information, you are telling us that you have the authorization to provide us with that information.

.

In order to make our site more efficient, we may also collect certain non PII information (such as destination or site usage behavior) based on your use of SkiGenie. We may use this information to display advertising that you find interesting and suppress advertising that you might find boring or annoying.

.

To help us debug problems with our software, we may collect some technical information from your browser software (such as Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer), screen resolution and the website that referred you to us.

Information Security

SkiGenie’s secure program is intended to keep the information stored in our systems protected from unauthorized access.

Cookies

When you visit SkiGenie we may store information about your web session and assign you one or more ‘cookies’. Your browser will store these cookies on you computer in a small text file.

SkiGenie does make money by selling advertising as well as referrals from searches on our site. Our third party advertising partners often use a cookie or third party web beacon (a single pixel GIF image) to track when a click becomes a sale. No PII is ever sent to these advertising partners.

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our web site. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

Third-Party Policies

Although we work with responsible third parties, their business policies may include different privacy policies and practices than we have. So when you click through to third party websites, our privacy policies no longer apply. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of these partner websites.

Flexibility

SkiGenie reserves the right to modify this privacy statement at any time. If there are material changes to this statement on how SkiGenie will use your PII, we will prominently post these changes prior to implementing them. If you use our website after we post these changes, this indicates your acceptance of them.
