WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
PSAA only collects personally identifiable information that is voluntarily submitted to us. We never require that personally identifiable information be provided in order to gain access to this Web site. When such information is requested, you will be told the purpose for which such information is to be used.
From time-to-time, we may also ask for information from visitors via surveys, polls or contests. Participation in these surveys, polls or contests is completely voluntary. You have the choice of whether or not to disclose your personal information. We will not require you to disclose more information than is reasonable necessary to participate in the activity on the Web site as a condition of such participation.
Information requested concerning surveys, polls or contests may include contact information (such as name, e-mail and shipping addresses), and demographic information (such as zip code and age level). Contact information will be used to notify winners and award prizes. Survey or poll information may be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site, or the programs offered by PSAA or any of its member ski areas. Information gathered from polls and surveys are only for internal use of PSAA or its member ski areas. If sample answers to polls or surveys are posted on the Web site, then no identifiable information is ever included.
As with most Web sites, certain non-personally identifiable information is recorded by the standard operation of our server. Such information may include: the name of the ISP from which a visitor accesses the Internet, the date and time a visitor accessed our Web site, the Internet address of the Web site from which a visitor entered our Web site, and where a visitor goes after leaving our Web site. Again, information that would personally identify a visitor is known only when it is voluntarily submitted.
How do we use the INFORMATION?
We do not share any personally identifiable information about our visitors with anyone outside of PSAA or its member ski areas. We may use this information to notify you occasionally of important functionality changes on the Web site, services, and special offers or information we or our member ski areas think you will find valuable. We may also use personally identifiable information for internal site administration purposes, to respond to specific inquiries initiated by visitors, and to comply in good faith with a law or legal action as directed by a court, regulatory agency or other entity acting with governmental authority.
The non-personally identifiable information we collect when you use this Web site may be used for internal review purposes in the aggregate, to measure and monitor the use of our Web site and to improve its content. For example, we may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site. Your IP address also may be used to gather broad demographic information. There also may be times when we share aggregate information about our visitors (for example, the percentage of male and female visitors to our Web site) with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties in an effort to customize or enhance the content and advertising on our Web site for our visitors.

PARENTAL CONSENT POLICY
Children's Privacy PSAA is committed to protecting the on-line privacy of children. Therefore, in accordance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, we will not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 without first obtaining parental consent.
To participate in the 4th & 5th Grade Snowpass Program, we need to know such information as your child's name, age, date of birth, parent's name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. This personally identifiable information will be provided to us in the application that may be downloaded or printed from this site, and then mailed to us. You acknowledge by the return of the application to us by mail that your child may have secured it on your behalf, but that you signed it as your child's parent or guardian, and consent to our use of the personally identifiable information therein.
Children Under the Age of 13: Important Notice Prior to providing any personally identifiable information by participating in any activity offered through our Web site, children under the age of 13 must have a "Parent" or "Legal Guardian" complete and return a Parental Consent Form by regular mail to: PSAA, P.O. Box 27, White Haven PA 18661; or by fax to (570) 443-0388. This consent form states that the "Parent" or "Legal Guardian" may revoke the consent by completing the Revocation of Parental Consent Form and sending it to the same address or fax number.
In the event children under the age of 13 are eligible, with parental consent, to participate in surveys or contests or other activities offered through our Web site, we will only collect and use information (e.g., e-mail address, mailing address, name, age) to the extent that it is necessary to administer the activity. We will never require that a child disclose more information than is necessary to participate in an activity as a condition of participation.
We will not disclose information collected from children under the age of 13 to third parties.
We encourage parents to monitor and supervise the on-line activities of their children and to consider using parental control tools available from on-line services and software manufacturers that help guarantee a child-friendly on-line environment. These tools help prevent children from disclosing their name, address, and other personal information without parental permission.
