J2Ski.Com Privacy Policy Statement

Your Use of J2Ski - Please Note

By continuing to use J2Ski, you consent to the terms of our Privacy Policy - please at least read the summary below, and the section regarding Google Analytics!

Our Privacy Policy - No Nonsense Summary

Why we provide this policy

In the course of visiting our web site, our web server will exchange data with your web browser - including the web pages you request, associated images and scripts and cookies as described below. In addition, if you wish to post messages to our forum we will ask you to provide a valid e-mail address. If you order anything from us we will, of course, require further information. This Policy tells you what data we keep and what we use it for. It also tells you what we will not use it for.

What we will not do with your data

We will not pass any collected personal data to a third party (unless legally required to do so), nor will we use it to distribute un-solicited commercial e-mail (spam).

We will not use your e-mail address, or any other personal data that you may choose to provide, for any purpose other than that for which it is supplied.

What we will do with data

We will use our web server logs to analyse the use of our web site.

When you visit J2Ski.Com, your IP Address (the unique address of your computer on the Internet) is recorded in our log files, along with the pages visited. These logs are standard Apache Web Server logs and may contain information allowing us to analyse when and how each visitor arrived at our site, which other web site(s) sent (referred) them and how long they stayed.

The Server Logs do not tell us who you are or where you live.

Analysing this data in a generic fashion allows us to determine patterns of usage and improve the content of our site for the benefit of all our visitors.

What we may do with data

If you provide us with your e-mail address (required to post in our forum) we may occasionally send you short e-mails informing you of changes to our site that may interest you.

We may be required from time to time, by applicable law or legal order, to provide data to law enforcement and governmental agencies.

Information we collect

For each visitor to our Web page, our Web server records the IP address of the visitor, the referrer (the address of the web site whose link was followed to find ours), and the pages and files accessed on our server.

We may resolve the IP address to also collect the domain name, but not the e-mail address, of visitors to our Web pages.

For visitors who voluntarily register to post messages to our forum, and who communicate with us via e-mail, we will record their e-mail address(es).

The information we collect is used to improve the content of our Web pages and occasionally to notify visitors about updates to our Web site; it is not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes.

Our use of Google Analytics - PLEASE READ

In order to understand the needs of our users, we use features of Google Analytics that report estimated demographic information.

To provide this information, Google may set and use additional cookies.

Controlling information shared with Google

You can control the information Google associates with your web activity (in Google's words you can "opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads") using the Google Ads Settings.

You can also use the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.

Our use of Cookies

We use "Cookies" (small files downloaded and maintained by your browser) to record session information, such as items that consumers add to their shopping cart, certain pages that users access or visit, or to ensure that visitors are not repeatedly sent the same banner ads.

You can choose not to accept Cookies (i.e. to "opt out" of receiving them) by adjusting the Preferences in your browser. Refer to your browser's Help facility if you are unsure how to do this.

Use of our partner sites

To support the development of our site, we have relationships with other companies that we allow to place ads on our Web pages. Should you "click through" to any of our partners, we encourage you to consult the Privacy Policies of those sites.

If we change this Policy

If our information practices change at some time in the future we will contact you before we use your data for any new purpose. We will notify you of the policy change and provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses.


When we transfer and receive certain types of sensitive information such as financial or health information, we will redirect visitors to a secure server.
