Effective Date: January 1, 2023
Last Updated: January 26, 2023
This Policy also applies to information collected in the State of California through off-line means - such as information collected through Our stores, call centers or distribution centers. We encourage you to read this Policy before visiting any of Our stores, using Our Site, or providing information to us. If you are a California resident, please see Section VII below entitled "Information for California Residents."
I. WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
We collect two types of information: Personal Information and Other Information.
"Personal Information" is information that relates to you as an identifiable specific individual.
"Other Information" is any information that cannot be tied back to you as a specific individual.
A. Direct Information Collection
"Personal Information" is any information that relates to or can be used to identify you. We collect Personal Information from you in various ways. While We collect Personal Information from you directly, We can also use third party sources of information in order to fulfill the purposes set out in this Policy. We collect information from you directly when you submit it to us, including by: Registering on the Site, Placing an order, Signing up for Our newsletter, Contacting us and Participating in a Site promotion or survey. This information may include, for example, your name, email address, address, telephone number, date of birth and credit card information. We may combine the information We collect from you with information We receive about you from other sources, such as address update services or off line sources. If you use the Site's refer-a-friend mechanism, We will collect your friend's email address, for the purpose of sending them email.
B. Navigational Information Collection
We also collect Personal Information from you indirectly when you visit Our Site. Some of this information is Personal Information, and some of it is Other Information. Where Other Information is combined with Personal Information, We consider all of the combined information to be Personal Information.
When you visit the Site, We may collect certain technical information from you, including: Your IP address, Browser type, Operating system and the domain name from which you accessed the Site.
In addition, We collect information about your browsing behavior, such as the date and time you visit the Site, the areas or pages of the Site that you visit, the amount of time you spend viewing the Site, the number of times you return to the Site and other clickstream data.
We may also use web beacons on the Site, in Our emails and in Our advertisements on other Sites. Web beacons are tiny graphic images that are used to collect information about your Site visit, such as the pages you view and the features you use, as well as information about whether you open and/or act upon one of Our emails or advertisements. We also collect the URL of the Site you visited immediately before coming to the Site. Web beacons help us analyze Our Site visitors' behavior and measure the effectiveness of the Site and Our advertising.
We may work with service providers that help Us track, collect and analyze this information. We may use third-party advertising and analytics companies that use tracking technologies to serve Our advertisements across the Internet. These companies may collect both Personal Information and pseudonymous information about your visits to the Site and other Sites and your interaction with Our advertising and other communications. Other companies may also use such companies to advertise on Our Site. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having your information used by these companies, click here.
We note that Our Site will continue to operate as described in this Policy, whether or not a "Do Not Track" signal or similar mechanism is received from your browser.
II. HOW DO WE USE THE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT?
III. WHO DO WE DISCLOSE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO?
We may also disclose your Personal Information with your express consent. We may share aggregate, non-personally identifiable information about Site users with third parties. Please note that any Personal Information that you voluntarily submit for posting to the Site (such as to a blog) becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others.
IV. HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
V. HOW TO ACCESS YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
You may access your Personal Information by signing into your account. From there, you can correct or modify your information. Please note that your account number and password are your responsibility. Please change your password and notify Us immediately if you believe your account or its password has been compromised.
VI. WHAT ARE YOUR CHOICES REGARDING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
We offer you choices about the collection, use and sharing of your Personal Information.
Opt-out of Marketing Communications. You may choose not to receive marketing email communications from us by clicking on the unsubscribe link in our marketing emails or by updating your preferences in your account settings. You may also change your email address for receipt of such communications in your account settings.
Targeted Advertising. Most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new Cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new Cookie, and how to disable existing Cookies. Please note, however, that without Cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of all of our Website's features. In addition, disabling Cookies may cancel opt-outs that rely on Cookies, such as web analytics or targeted advertising opt-outs. Please note that most opt-out mechanisms (including browser-based signals) are Cookie-based and will only affect the specific computer and browser that is used to submit an opt-out request. If you have multiple computers or change computers, or use multiple browsers, you will need to submit opt-out requests for each such computer or browser. In addition, if you delete, block or otherwise restrict cookies, you will need to renew your opt-out choices to ensure that any opt-out Cookies remain effective.
Opt-out of Google Analytics. If you do not want Google Analytics to gather information about how you interact with our Website while you are on our Website, please install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on available here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and employ it at the start of each session on our Website. A Cookie will be set on your browser that instructs this technology not to start for that session. Please note that the next time you access our Website the analytics will be reactivated, so you will have to disable the technology each time. If you reject the Cookies we use, you can still use certain aspects of our Website, but you may not be able to take full advantage of all of our Website's features.
If you are resident of certain states in the U.S., you may also have the following rights regarding your Personal Information (each of which are subject to various exceptions and limitations):
Right to Do not Sell or Share Your Personal Information. As we described above, we share your Personal Information with third-party partners who provide advertising and marketing services to us. If you would like to exercise your right to opt-out of targeted advertising, as well as the sale/sharing of your Personal Information, please fill out our Form.
Some browsers offer you the ability to opt out of Cookie-based and other online tracking, which may be considered a "sale" or "sharing" of your Personal Information. At this time, we endeavor to respond to browser-based opt-out signals sent through the Global Privacy Control: https://globalprivacycontrol.org/. We do not respond to do not track or other browser-based signals.
Right to Access Your Personal Information. You can request, up to two times every 12 months, that we provide you with a copy of the specific pieces of Personal Information we have collected about you.
Right to Request Correction or Deletion of Your Personal Information. You can request that we correct or delete the Personal Information we have collected about you, subject to certain exceptions permitted under applicable law.
Right Not to Receive Discriminatory Treatment. You will not be discriminated against for exercising any of the above rights. However, please keep in mind that some of our Services cannot be provided if we do not have your Personal Information.
To exercise the rights described above, you must send us a request that (i) provides sufficient information to allow us to verify that you are the person about whom we have collected Personal Information, including by verifying the email address associated with the request and (ii) describes your request in sufficient detail to allow us to understand, evaluate and respond to it. Each request that meets both of these criteria will be considered a "Valid Request." We may not respond to requests that do not meet these criteria. We will only use Personal Information provided in a Valid Request to verify you and complete your request. You do not need a Snow Joe account to submit a Valid Request. Only you or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf (an "Authorized Agent") may submit a Valid Request. If an Authorized Agent submits a Valid Request on your behalf, we may require written proof of authorization and verification of identity directly from you.
