The Way We Use Information

We use the information you provide about yourself when placing a request only to complete that request. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.

 

We use the information you provide for research only to track and trend for educational purposes. We do not share your specific data with outside parties, and no outside parties will be able to view your entries on the site. When we publish conclusions reached from analyzing data entered on the site we will use non-identifying and aggregate information.

 

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

 

You can register with our website if you would like to receive our catalog as well as updates on our new products and services. Information you submit on our website will not be used for this purpose unless you fill out the registration form.

 

We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of parks and recreation professionals and Z number of waterpark operators filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.

 

We may release account information when we believe it is reasonably necessary to enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions; to protect the rights, property, and safety of the SAI site, our users, or others; or to conform to the requirements of law or comply with governmental orders, court orders, or legal process served on us.

 

Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
