Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

VisitErie places the utmost importance on protecting your privacy. We believe that you have a right to know our practices regarding the information we may collect and use when visiting VisitErie.com. This privacy policy explains what types of information is collected by our websites and how this information is used, and will help you understand how VisitErie (“us”, “we”, “our”) uses and protects the data you provide to us when you visit and use VisitErie.com. We reserve the right to change this policy at any given time.

What does VisitErie collect?

The majority of services on VisitErie.com are offered without collecting any personally identifiable information. You can view the majority of our content anonymously.

Information Sharing

It is our policy not to share with anyone the names or email addresses of our visitors. However, unless otherwise noted or unless the user informs us otherwise VisitErie reserves the right to use and to disclose to third party vendors user information (e.g., user name and email address) for purposes such as providing users with information about products and services. For example, we may offer a discount or contest in conjunction with a partner that may have special offers or promotions that might be of interest to you.  In such a case, your personal information may be shared with the partner, and their use of your information is governed by their privacy policy. If you do not wish to be included in such uses, please send us an email requesting to be taken off any lists of information that may be used for these purposes or given or sold to third-party vendors.

Information You Provide

There are a few places on VisitErie.com where we do collect personally identifiable information. We have to collect information when you enter a contest or contact us. When we do collect personally identifiable information you will have to fill out a form – it will be obvious that we are asking you for information. Normally, we collect only your name and email address – we might ask for age range, gender or zip code.

VisitErie uses personally identifiable information in a limited number of ways. We use the information to notify you if you won something or perhaps offer you access to other products and email newsletters. We can also use the information you provide to send you promotions and offers from our third-party sponsors. Occasionally we offer special promotions in conjunction with other companies. We may share your information with these other companies. We generally ask your permission, however, before sharing your information.

Information Collected from You with Technology

VisitErie.com collects some information about you using technology, so it may not be readily apparent to you that it is being collected. For instance, when you come to our site your IP address is collected so that we know where to send information you are requesting. An IP address is often associated with the place from which you enter the Internet like your ISP (Internet service provider), your business, or your university. This information is not personally identifiable. VisitErie.com uses information collected through technology to make our web site more interesting and useful. This includes helping our partners on our site design advertisements you might like. We normally don’t combine this type of information with personally identifiable information. Other information collected may be used for remarketing, interest categories, similar audiences, other types of interest-based advertising, or demographic and location targeting. To opt out of Analytics, please visit this Google page: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

These codes allow VisitErie.com to remember important information that will make your use of that site more useful. VisitErie and other Internet companies use cookies for a variety of purposes. You can choose to have your computer warn you (or you can turn off the function completely) each time a cookie is being sent. You do this through your browser (like Google Chrome or Internet Explorer) settings.

Security

VisitErie employs reasonable security measures to protect personal information from becoming disclosed to individuals who are not described in this Privacy Policy. While there is no such thing as “perfect security” on the Internet, we will take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of your personal information.

Opt Out

VisitErie allows users to opt out of receiving email from our partners or us. To opt out of our emailing list, please click here. Every email VisitErie sends includes a link to opt out of future mailings. We have no control over email promotions that you may receive from third parties.  If you want to opt out of email promotions from third parties, you must do so directly with them.  

Content Partners

On occasion, VisitErie may provide content that is created by a third-party web site. In some instances, the third-party sites will collect information in order to facilitate the transaction or to make the use of their content more productive and efficient.
