Welcome. At Snow Communications, your privacy is important to us. This Privacy Policy explains how Snow Communications (“we, “ “us,” and “our”) protect your privacy when you visit our website (our “Site(s)”). This Privacy Policy describes what types of information we gather and track when you use our Site, how this information is used and with whom it is shared.

Scope of This Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy covers the “Personal Information” we collect through our Site. “Personal Information” is information that identifies you personally, either alone or in combination with other information available to us.

Please take a few minutes to review this Privacy Policy. By accessing or using our Site you are consenting to the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.


What Personal Information Do We Collect Through Our Site

Information You Provide. We collect the Personal Information you knowingly provide (using your mouse and keyboard, cellular or mobile phones) when you use our Site. The information we collect depends on how you use our Site. For example, if you sign up to receive email communications from us, we collect your email address and any related information you provide. If you communicate with us using the “Contact Us” feature, we collect the information you provide when you complete the “Contact Us” form.

This information typically includes the IP address of your internet service provider, the name and version of your operating system, the name and version of your browser, the date and time of your visit, and the pages you visit. Please check your browser if you want to learn what information your browser sends or how to change your settings. This information does not identify you personally. Generally, we use this information to improve our Site and make it more compatible with the technology used by our visitors. In most cases, we do not link the information sent by your browser to information that identifies you personally. We do, however, review our server logs – which contain visitors’ IP addresses — for security purposes, such as detecting intrusions into our network. If we suspect criminal activity, we may share our server logs with the appropriate investigative authorities who could use that information to trace and identify individuals.

Compliance With Laws and Protection of Our Rights and the Rights of Others.

We respect your right to make choices about the ways we collect, use and disclose your Personal Information. In most cases, we will ask you to indicate your choices at the time we collect your Personal Information. We will also include an “opt-out” link in newsletter or promotional email we send you so that you can inform us that you do not wish to receive such communications from us in the future.

How Does Snow Communications Protect Personal Information

We take reasonable precautions to provide a level of security appropriate to the sensitivity of the Personal Information we collect. Although we use reasonable measures to help protect your Personal Information against unauthorized use or disclosure, we cannot guarantee the security of information provided over the internet or stored in our databases.

Links to Third-Party websites

This Site may also contain links to websites operated by other companies, including websites operated by our third-party service providers, our affiliates, and other third parties. This Privacy Policy does not apply to Personal Information collected on any of these third-party websites. When you access third-party websites through a link on this Site, please take a few minutes to review the privacy policy posted on that site.

Use of Cookies, Web Beacons and Similar Technologies by Third Parties

Marketing Consultants. We may use Web beacons, cookies and other Web technologies to collect information about visitors to our Site. For example, we may count how many visitors access our Site, what links they use, and what pages they view. We may also track which websites and advertisements refer traffic to our Site and the URLs of the site to which our Site refer traffic (that is, the websites on which our visitors land when they leave our Site). We use this information to compile statistics and prepare reports that provide the feedback and analysis we need to understand the needs and interests of our visitors, improve the content, functionality and usability of our Site, and improve the effectiveness of our advertising and marketing efforts. The information we collect does not identify you personally.

If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer. You may also delete our cookies as soon as you leave a Site. Although you are not required to accept our cookies when you visit our Site, if you set your browser to reject cookies, you will not be able to use all of the features and functionality of our Site.

Advertising Companies. We use third-party advertising companies to manage our online advertising campaigns. Our advertising companies use cookies and other Web technologies to target and measure the effectiveness of our advertisements. For example, our advertising companies place Web beacons on their clients’ websites, including our Site. When you visit these websites, the Web beacon “tags” your computer with a “cookie.” The information stored on the cookie does not identify you personally and is not combined with any information that identifies you personally, but it does permit our advertising companies to recognize your computer when you access one of their clients’ sites. Our advertising companies use the information they collect about your use of their clients’ websites to customize the advertisements you see when you visit their clients’ sites. Our advertising companies’ use of cookies and other web technologies is covered by their privacy policies, not by this Online Privacy Statement. If you do not wish to receive our advertising companies’ cookies, you may “opt-out” by following the directions in our advertising companies’ privacy policies.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

As we add new features and functionality to our Site, we may need to update or revise this Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to do so, at any time and without prior notice, by posting the revised version on our Site. Your use of our Site following any such change constitutes your consent to the terms of the revised Privacy Policy. For this reason, it is important to review this Privacy Policy regularly. If we modify this Privacy Policy, we will provide a notice at the top of this Privacy Policy for at least 30 days after the new effective date.

Governing Law

This Privacy Policy is governed under the laws of the State of Minnesota, United States of America without regard to its conflicts of law provisions.
