Your privacy is important to us.
Like most website operators, Springwater Resorts collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Springwater Resorts’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Springwater Resorts’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Springwater Resorts may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Springwater Resorts also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on springwaterresorts.com blog posts. Springwater Resorts only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
