Online Privacy Practices, Privacy and Data Security
At Professional Ski Instructors of America & American Association of Snowboard Instructors (PSIA-AASI), your right to privacy and data security is a primary concern. That’s why, when you visit http://www.thesnowpros.org, we help you maintain control over your personal data on the Internet. Below are the guidelines we use for protecting the information you provide us during a visit to our Internet site (http://www.thesnowpros.org)
PSIA-AASI only asks for specific types of personal information
In a few areas on our Web site and online member support tools, we ask you to provide information that will enable us to enhance your site visit, to assist you with membership support issues or to follow up with you after your visit. It is completely optional for you to participate.
For example, we request information from you when you:
Activate your online member account or register as a customer/guest
1. Place an order
2. Provide feedback in an online survey
3. Participate in a promotional offer
4. Request e-mail notification of your order status
5. Change personal information
6. Participate in other interactive services
In each of the instances above, we may ask for your name, e-mail address, phone number, address, as well as other similar personal information that is needed to register. If we ever ask for significantly different information we will inform you. In the case of promotional mailing lists, you will be able to “unsubscribe” to these mailings at any time.
PSIA-AASI only uses your personal information for specific membership service
The information you provide will be kept confidential and used to support your membership with PSIA-AASI. Among other things, we want to help you quickly find information on http://www.thesnowpros.org and alert you to any, special offers, updated information and other new products and services from PSIA-AASI. Agents or contractors of PSIA-AASI who have access to your personal information and prospect information are required to keep the information confidential and not use it for any other purpose than to carry out the services they are performing for PSIA-AASI. PSIA-AASI may enhance or merge your information collected at its site with data from third parties for purposes of marketing products or services to you.
You can opt-out of receiving further marketing from PSIA-AASI at any time
We will send you information about our various products and services, or other products and services we feel may be of interest to you. Only PSIA-AASI (or agents working on behalf of PSIA-AASI and under confidentiality agreements) will send you these direct mailings. If you do not want to receive such mailings, simply tell us when you give us your personal information. Or, at any time you can easily opt-out of receiving further marketing from PSIA-AASI by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting that you name be removed from future promotional mailings.
The online catalog at http://www.thesnowpros.org is designed to give you options concerning the privacy of your credit card information, name, address, e-mail and any other information you provide us. PSIA-AASI is committed to data security with respect to information collected on our site. We offer the industry standard security measures available through your browser called SSL encryption. If at any time you would like to make a purchase, but do not want to provide your credit card information online, you may place an order without credit card information by placing an order through the mail or by fax. It has always been a PSIA-AASI practice to contact customers in the event of a potential problem with your purchase or any normal business communication regarding your purchase.
Please be aware that other web sites that may be accessed through our site may collect personally identifiable information about you. The information practices of those third-party web sites linked to http://www.thesnowpros.org are not covered by this privacy statement.
You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you’re online. If you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. While we strive to protect your personal information, PSIA-AASI cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
