Please refer to this document for an explanation of ALPSTORIES’s policy on the information we collect; how we use this information and for how long; how cookies are used; opt-out procedures; information access; security; and third-party sites.
From time to time, we may use your information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our Policy. If our information practices change materially at some time in the future, we will post the changes to our website and revise our Policy accordingly. In addition, if we have collected personally identifying information from you, we will notify you about the changes and secure your consent prior to making use of your information in new ways.
This Policy describes how we, ALPSTORIES, handle information we learn about you from our website.
What Information Do We Collect?
The information we collect varies depending upon your activities when visiting our site.
We collect personally identifying information you choose to provide to us in connection with your activities on the site. Participation in these activities is completely voluntary; therefore, you can elect not to disclose, for example, your name or address by not participating in the activity.
In addition, for each visitor to our site, we automatically gather certain other information, including (as applicable) internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, processor or device serial number, unique device identifier, geolocation information, and clickstream data. However, all of this automatically gathered information is kept only during the session in which it is collected; the data is deleted when you close your browser.
How Do We Use This Information?
We use this information for purposes stated at the point of collection and to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We also use this information to improve the content of our web pages, and to customize the content and layout of our pages. All of this is done with the intention of making our site more useful to visitors.
How Long Do We Keep Your Information?
We may retain membership records indefinitely for historical purposes. Any payment and credit card information you may provide for the purpose of participating in an AlpStories activity is submitted by you directly to our credit card processor and is not accessed or retained by us.
We use session cookies on this website. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some areas of our site will be limited.
We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site. We use session cookies to record session information, such as which web pages a user has visited, and to track user activity on the site. We also use session cookies to store any passwords used on the site (such as a password associated with a user account), so you don’t have to enter it more than once per session. Session cookies expire when you close your browser.
Third Party Sites
This Policy applies only to information collected by this website.
From time to time, this website may link you to other sites (“Linked Sites”) that are not owned by AlpStories. We do not control the collection or use of any information, including personally identifying information, that occurs during your visit to the Linked Sites. Further, we make no representations about the privacy policies or practices of the Linked Sites, and AlpStories is not responsible for the privacy practices of these Linked Sites.
Be careful of disclosing any of your personally identifiable information when leaving our site. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.
Our website may contain affiliate marketing links, which means we may get paid commission on sales of those products or services. Our content is not influenced by advertisers or affiliate partnerships. This disclosure is provided in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR § 255.5: Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.
