Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At 360niseko we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • We do share your information if you make a accommodation booking enquiry, the booking agents you select to send the message to will receive the information you enter into the form so they can service your request.

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact us.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, 360niseko collects non-personally identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. 360niseko’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how 360niseko’s visitors use its website. From time to time, 360niseko may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
360niseko also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blogs or location pages. 360niseko only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to 360niseko’s websites choose to interact with 360niseko in ways that require 360niseko to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that 360niseko gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a client account to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with 360niseko – by purchasing a location sponsorship plan, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, 360niseko collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with 360niseko. 360niseko does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

360niseko may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, 360niseko may monitor the most popular blogs or locations on the site. 360niseko may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, 360niseko does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

360niseko discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on 360niseko’s behalf or to provide services available at 360niseko’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using 360niseko’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. 360niseko will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, 360niseko discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when 360niseko believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of 360niseko, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an 360niseko website and have supplied your email address, 360niseko may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, new campaigns, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with 360niseko and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. 360niseko takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. 360niseko uses cookies to help 360niseko identify and track visitors, their usage of 360niseko website, and their website access preferences. 360niseko visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using 360niseko’s website, with the drawback that certain features of 360niseko’s website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If 360niseko, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that 360niseko goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of 360niseko may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Adverts

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by 360niseko and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Comments

Comments and other content submitted to our Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, 360niseko may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in 360niseko’s sole discretion. 360niseko encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.

Change log:
5 December 2011: First version of 360niseko Privacy Policy created.

The nice people at http://automattic.com/ originally created this privacy policy and have made it available under a Creative Commons Sharealike license, which means you’re more than welcome to steal it and re-purpose it for your own use just as we did. Make sure to replace references to us with ones to you. Automattic Inc spent a lot of money and time creating the original document and other people shouldn’t need to do the same so please re-use it.
