Information Collection

SnowBlowers.net is the sole owner of the information collected on www.SnowBlowers.net.
SnowBlowers.net collects information from our users at several different
points on our Web site.

Registration form

Features on this web site may require that a user register. During registration a user is required to
give contact information (such as email address and password). We use this information to contact the
user about services on our site for which (s)he has expressed an interest. We may occasionally ask the user
to provide contact, demographic or geographic information. This helps us to provide a more personalized
experience on the site.

Order forms

We may request information from the user on our order forms. A user must provide
financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date and zip code). This information is
used for billing purposes and to fill customer orders.
If we have trouble processing an order, the information is used to contact the user.

Information Use

Profile

We store and gather information from cookies, log files, clear gifs, and/or third parties to create a
profile of our users. A profile is stored information that we keep on individual users that details their
preferences and actions. Collected information is tied to a user’s identity to provide offers and improved
content. This profile is used to tailor a users visit to our Web site, and to direct pertinent marketing
promotions to them. We do not share your profile with other third parties.

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email
address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If

Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data stored on a user’s computer which allows us to track the user during their
visit to our site. We use session cookies (rather than permanent cookies).
Once a user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. If users rejects the cookie, they may
still use our site, although they will not be able to access areas of the site which require login.

Some of our business partners (ex: advertisers) may use cookies on our site. We have no
access to or control over these cookies, once we have given permission for them
to set cookies for advertising.

Third Party Advertising

The ads appearing on this Web site may be delivered to users by our web advertising partners.
We do not pass personal information to those advertisers about our users — although those
advertisers may choose to use technologies that allow them to connect a user’s presence on
our site with the same user’s presence on other sites. This is standard practice by
some advertisers, and is in no way unique to SnowBlowers.net.

This privacy statement covers the use of cookies by www.SnowBlowers.net only and does not cover the use of
cookies by any advertisers.

Log Files

Like most Web sites we record information about your session and write it to databases and log files. This
includes internet protocol (IP) addresses (which can be traced to your internet service provider (ISP), browser type,
referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, which pages you requested, etc. We use this information
to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movements in particular and in the aggregate, and gather
broad demographic information for aggregate use. This information allows us to link your ip address to any
personally identifiable information that you have given us.

Communications from the Site

Offers and Updates

We may send new members a welcoming email to verify password and username. Established members will occasionally
receive information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter if they opt in to receive this
information. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these types of
communications. Please see the Choice and Opt-out sections.

Service Announcements

On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement. For instance, if our
service is temporarily suspended for maintenance we might send users an email. Generally, users may not opt-out
of these communications, though they can deactivate their account. However, these communications are not
promotional in nature.

Customer Service

We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested services and in
regards to issues relating to their account. We reply via email or phone, in
accordance with the user’s wishes.

 

Sharing

Legal Disclaimer

action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order
or legal process served on our Web site.

Aggregate Information (non-personally identifiable)

We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and
advertisers. This is not linked to any personally identifiable information.

Third Party Intermediaries

We use a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. This company does not retain,
share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

Business Transitions

In the event SnowBlowers.net goes through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or
selling a portion of its assets, users’ personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets
transferred.

Choice/Opt-out

Our users are given the opportunity to opt-out of having their information used
for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for

privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to
read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information.
This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

Tell-A-Friend

If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we
ask them for the friend’s name and email address. SnowBlowers.net will automatically send the friend a one-time
email inviting them to visit the site. SnowBlowers.net stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this
one-time email (and tracking the success of our referral program).

Security

We do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. Users’ information is
stored on our servers under password controls. Access to that information is granted to
employees on a need-to-know basis. Finally, the servers that
store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment,

If users have any questions about the security at our
Web site, they may contact us.

Correcting/Updating/Deleting/Deactivating Personal Information

If a user’s personally identifiable information (such as email) changes or if a user no longer desires our
service, we provide a way to correct, update or delete/deactivate users’ personally
identifiable information. This can usually be done by contacting Customer Support.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy
statement, the homepage, and other places we deem appropriate so our users are
always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what
circumstances, if any, we disclose it.

If, however, we are going to use users’ personally identifiable information in a
manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify
users by posting a notice on our Web site for 30 days.
