What Information Alpenclimb Collects

Personally Identifiable Information You Provide Us.

All Users have the option of providing personally identifiable information to Alpenclimb through the Site. Personally identifiable information may include, without limitation, your name, mailing address, telephone number, gender, age, e-mail address or any other information that identifies you or allows people to contact you. Alpenclimb may collect any personally identifiable information that you voluntarily supply on any of the Site’s pages. Alpenclimb also collects and stores any personally identifiable information that you provide when you use any functionality on the Site, ask a question, complete a form, or send us an email. Please be advised that you are not obligated or required to submit any personally identifiable information via the Site; however, if you do not provide the requested information, you may not be able to access or use certain features and functions of our Site and Alpenclimb may not be able to provide you with certain services.

Information Collected Automatically.

When you visit the Site, Alpenclimb automatically collects certain information about your visit using tracking technology. Such information may include, without limitation, your Internet Protocol address (“IP Address”), your unique device or user ID, system and browser type, the referring address website, the content and pages that you access on the Site, and the dates and times that you visit the Site. Alpenclimb may also capture the user agent string from your device which helps us classify the type of device you are using to interact with the Site (e.g. desktop, tablet, mobile device). The user agent string does not, however, collect any personally identifiable information. As further discussed below, Alpenclimb uses technology, including cookies, web beacons, and other similar technology, to automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information that Alpenclimb may then use for system administration, troubleshooting, general user statistics and analysis and to identify you when you visit the Site through your computer or mobile device to help us enhance your online experience and make our advertising more relevant to you. Certain features of the Site are only available through the use of this technology. In addition, aggregate download information may also be collected from this non-personally identifiable information. Alpenclimb may use this data for improving the products and services offered by us.

Cookies, Web Beacons and other Technology.

As mentioned above, the Site may use cookies, web beacons and other similar tracking technology. Cookies are small text files that websites place in your browser when you visit them. When you return to the Site, the Site can access its previously placed cookie to uniquely identify your browser. Cookies accomplish several different things. They recall your preferences at a website, help content render more efficiently, and improve the overall user experience on a website. They can also help advertisers see what interests you and what advertising may be relevant to you. Our cookies do not collect personally identifiable information; the information collected via the cookies is in an aggregate, non-identifiable form. Alpenclimb does, however, store a unique identifier in the cookie that may tie back to a consumer record in our databases that contains personally identifiable information you have voluntarily provided us.

If you do not agree to this use of cookies, please disable them. In order to do this, follow the instructions provided by your browser (usually located within the “Help”, “Tools” or “Edit” menu). Disabling a cookie or category of cookie does not delete the cookie from your browser; you will need to do this yourself from within your browser by choosing the option to delete cookies. If you have disabled one or more cookies, Alpenclimb may still use information collected from cookies prior to your disabled preference being set, however, we will stop using the disabled cookie to collect any further information. Please be advised that, if you do choose to disable cookies, certain features of the Site may not be available to you and Alpenclimb may not be able to provide you with certain services. For further information on cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your device and how to manage and delete them, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/.

The Site and communications sent by Alpenclimb to you may include web beacons. Alpenclimb may use the web beacons on the Site and in such communications for various purposes, including, without limitation, to track users who have visited the Site or who have accessed such communications.

Alpenclimb may display certain advertising offers on the Site and/or allow service providers, advertising companies and ad networks and other third parties to do the same.

Please note that this Policy does not apply to the use of cookies, web beacons and other similar technology by third parties, including our partners, affiliates, tracking utility company and service providers. Alpenclimb does not have access to or control over the cookies and other such technology used by such third parties or how they may be used and assume no responsibility with respect thereto.

Alpenclimb may collect information about you from third party websites with which the Site connects (if any). If you arrive at the Site by “clicking through” from an email or another website, then certain information about you that you provided to that email sender or other website, such as the terms you were searching on that led you to the Site, may be transmitted to us and we may use it. You should review and understand the privacy policy of any website from which you reached the Site in order to determine what information was collected by that website and for what purpose(s) you agreed that website could use that information. Alpenclimb may or may not retain information about you provided to us by other entities.

Such information may or may not be associated with other User activity data or personally identifiable information.
