What Information Do We Collect: The types of personal and other information we may collect about you are primarily from four sources: (a) information you provide; (b) third party information collected; (c) information automatically collected; and (d) cookies. The legal bases for our processing of personal information are primarily that the processing is necessary for providing the Services and that the processing is carried out in our legitimate interests, which are further explained in the “How Do We Use Your Information” section. We may also process personal information upon your consent, asking for it as appropriate.
Information You Provide: SNOWGROUP collects personal information about you when you register to become a user of our Website and/or Services and when you otherwise transmit such information to us via the Internet (including partner websites) or by email. For instance, and without limitation, to maintain your account we collect and store in a database your name, addresses, email address, and telephone numbers.
Third Party Information: Collected SNOWGROUP collects personal information and other information about or related to you from Facebook and potentially other third parties ("Third Party Information") when you connect, register or sign-up for the Services (including when you download the mobile application). In such cases, you allow SNOWGROUP to access and obtain personal information and other Third Party Information about you from Facebook (including from your Facebook profile information and pictures and information about your friends and likes) and such other third parties. The Third Party Information you allow SNOWGROUP to access and collect is affected by the privacy settings you establish with Facebook or such other third parties (and you can control and find out more about these settings by visiting www.facebook.com or such settings of third parties, if applicable). The Third Party Information is subject to certain terms and conditions which restrict and proscribe our use, disclosure and protection of your Third Party Information in accordance with the applicable policies on www.facebook.com (or the websites of such other third parties, if applicable) (the "Third Party Restrictions").
Information Automatically Collected: SNOWGROUP automatically collects certain information about your device when you visit the Website, such as your IP address, browser type, and referring website. This information is collected through cookies and other tracking technologies. When you visit the Website, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website ("Log Data"). This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Website, pages of our Website that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Website, access times and dates, and other statistics. This information is used to analyze and improve the performance and usability of our Website and Services.
How We Store Your Information: SNOWGROUP has implemented various physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of personal information under our control. We limit access to your personal information to authorized SNOWGROUP personnel. However, while we maintain a multitude of security measures to prevent unauthorized access to or disclosure of your personal information, no security measures are absolute or wholly guaranteed. We will store your personal information for as long as necessary for the provision of our Services, as required by applicable laws, regulations, or government orders, or as necessary to protect our rights. Your personal information may be stored and processed in any country where we have facilities or engage third party service providers. By using the Services, you consent to the transfer of your information to countries outside your country of residence that may have different data protection rules than in your country. We will comply with the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") requirements providing adequate protection for the transfer of personal information from the EU/EEA to third countries. We reserve the right to store personal information submitted by you at the time of making a Submission, including name, city, country and email. We store this information in order (i) to add your name to the contributor roll on the Website to thank you for your Submission and (ii) to notify you when the Submission is posted online, if applicable and if you have explicitly agreed to be notified. We will not use your personal information for marketing purposes unless you have provided your consent.
