How do we protect your information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information.

We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.

After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.

Do we use cookies?

Snapathon employs cookies. A "cookie" is a small text file that a website or application, when accessed by a user, sends to that user's device which, in turn, may store some data on the user's hard drive or memory. Snapathon uses cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart, understand and save your preferences for future Snapathon usage and compile aggregate data about Snapathon traffic and Snapathon interaction so that we can offer better Snapathon experiences and tools in the future, to identify your usage session for customizing your user experience and for generating analytical data.
Snapathon's "session cookies" are set to expire when the user closes the application or web browser. These session cookies are used to identify your session for e-commerce purposes. Snapathon uses a persistent cookie to enhance your return usage of Snapathon.

Like most standard Web site servers, Snapathon uses log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer Snapathon, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.

In addition, Snapathon uses Google Analytics as a method of tracking site statistics and user behavior on the Site. Google Analytics uses persistent cookies to aggregate data about Snapathon usage. Snapathon will track your use of Snapathon in order to gain aggregate data that may be analyzed for trends and statistics. Subject to the provisions of this Privacy Policy, Snapathon may use accumulated aggregate data for purposes including, but not limited to, marketing analysis, evaluation of services provided by Snapathon, and business planning.

Snapathon may conduct surveys or other studies of its user base and use the results for marketing and planning purposes. Participation in such surveys is at the user's option. Snapathon reserves the right to disclose information provided by any user through such a survey, provided that no personal information identifying that user is disclosed. Circumstances under which Snapathon would publicly disclose aggregate information include, but are not limited to, sharing survey results with partners and/or Snapathon users, providing data to advertisers on user preferences and/or demographics, business planning, and publicizing overall usage data in press communications.

If you prefer, you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies via your browser settings. Like most services, if you turn your cookies off, some of our services may not function properly.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

Snapathon may utilize user-provided email addresses to contact users on an individual basis. At no time, unless such disclosure is required by law, a governmental agency, or specifically authorized by the user, will Snapathon disclose individual user personal information to unrelated third parties that is not publicly available.

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating Snapathon, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. At no time, unless such disclosure is required by law, a governmental agency, or specifically authorized by the user, will Snapathon disclose individual user personal information to unrelated third parties that is not publicly available. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to enforce Snapathon policies, or protect other’s and our rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable user information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

Information provided by Snapathon partners

Snapathon may receive information from partners that you provided to them during your event registration as covered by your event registration agreement. Snapathon may also receive information from partners related to your participation in the event, such as your timing and finish information. Snapathon uses this information for marketing purposes as well as to customize certain products by including information specific to a particular participant.

Snapathon will not provide any personally identifiable information received from its partners to any-. Partner-provided data may be aggregated demographically for use by Snapathon and may be shared with partners.

Third-party links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on Snapathon. These third parties have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites and applications. We encourage you to read the privacy policy of any third-party service you may access or use.

California Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance

Because we value your privacy we have taken the necessary precautions to be in compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act. We therefore will not distribute your personal information to outside parties without your consent.

Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance

We are in compliance with the requirements of COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act), we do not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. Snapathon, products and services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years old or older.


In the event that Snapathon becomes aware that site security is compromised or nonpublic user information has been disclosed to unrelated third parties as a result of external activity, including but not limited to external security attacks, Snapathon shall take reasonable measures which it deems appropriate, including but not limited to internal investigation and reporting, and notification to and cooperation with law enforcement authorities, notwithstanding other provisions of this Privacy Policy.

If Snapathon becomes aware that a user's personal information provided to Snapathon has been disclosed in a manner not in accordance with this Privacy Policy, Snapathon shall make reasonable efforts to notify the affected user, as soon as reasonably possible and as permitted by law, of what information has been disclosed, to the extent that Snapathon knows this information.  

No guarantees for factors beyond the control of Snapathon

While this Privacy Policy expresses the standards of Snapathon for maintenance of private data, Snapathon is not in a position to guarantee that the standards will always be met. There may be factors beyond the control of Snapathon (e.g., "script kiddies", "crackers and other malcontents”) that may result in disclosure of data. As a consequence, Snapathon disclaims any warranties or representations relating to maintenance or nondisclosure of private information.

What can I do to help make sure the security works correctly?

To help ensure that these measures are effective in preventing unauthorized access to your private information, you should be aware of the security features available to you through your browser. You should use a security-enabled browser to submit your credit card information and other personal information at the Site. Please note, if you do not use an SSL-capable browser, you are at risk for having data intercepted. Snapathon will not be responsible for any compromise of data that is intercepted due to your use of an unsecured browser.

Most browsers have the ability to notify you if you change between secure and insecure communications, receive invalid site identification information for the site you are communicating with, or send information over an unsecured connection. Snapathon recommends that you enable these browser functions to help ensure that your communications are secure. You can also monitor the URL of the site you are visiting (secure URLs begin with https:// rather than the normal http://), along with the security symbol of your browser (such as a broken or complete key in Internet Explorer) to help identify when you are communicating with a secure server. You can also view the details of the security certificate of the site to which you are connected. Snapathon encourages you to use this to check the validity of any site you connect to using secure communications.

What about the blog?

Snapathon maintains a relationship with an outside service provider to administer the online Blog site that will be accessed through Snapathon’s site at http://blog.snapathon.com/ (the “Blog”). The Blog maintains the look and feel of the Site, but the outside service provider stores any personal information you provide on the Blog. Any personal information submitted on the Blog is wholly governed by the privacy policy of the outside service provider, which can be found at http://www.wordpress.com/privacy. Snapathon recommends that you read that privacy policy before submitting any personal information on the Blog. Although the Blog pages may have Snapathon branding, the outside service provider is prominently identified so that you are aware of who is collecting your personal information. If you use the Blog, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit in the comment field can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums indefinitely, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. Snapathon is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit via the Blog.
