La Ronde collects certain information about or related to you through this Site :
Personal Information. Personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") is any information that can be used to identify a specific individual, such as your name, email address, mailing address (including postal code), phone number and credit card information.
Anonymous Information. Anonymous information is information that does not identify you specifically including information collected automatically by your browser or device ("Anonymous Information"), such as your IP address.
This Policy may be supplemented or amended from time to time by additional privacy notices (“Privacy Notices”), provided at the time we collect your information. For example, certain pages of this Site may contain Privacy Notices providing more details about the information we collect on those particular pages, why we need that information, and choices you may have about the way we use that information.
By using this Site, you are consenting to the collection, use, disclosure, and transfer of your information as described in this Policy (and any Privacy Notices that apply to you). If you do not consent to the collection, use, disclosure and transfer of your information as described in this Policy (and any Privacy Notices that apply to you), you may not use this Site.
In General. We respect your right to make choices about the way we collect, use, and disclose your information. This Policy describes some of your choices. We may ask you to indicate your choices at the time and on the page where you provide your information.
Ability to Unsubscribe. You can visit the Parks and use the Site without providing any Personal Information, but if you decline to provide Personal Information, you may not be able to use certain services or features. If you have previously provided Personal Information to the Site and have subscribed to one or more email newsletters or are receiving emails or other communications from the Site and you no longer wish to receive such emails, please discontinue your subscriptions by selecting the "unsubscribe" link at the bottom of any message. If you have previously provided Personal Information to La Ronde or any of the Six Flags Parks and have subscribed to one or more newsletters or are receiving direct mail from us and you no longer wish to receive such communications, please discontinue your subscriptions by contacting us at infolaronde@sixflags.
Ability to "Opt-Out". You may choose to "opt-out" of receiving promotional materials from us and/or our business partners at the time that you are asked to provide your Personal Information either at the Site or at a Park. If you ask that we stop using your Personal Information, we will honor that request.
Information You Manually Provide (using your keyboard, mouse, or touchpad). Personal Information is collected when you provide it at the Parks and/or interact with the Site, for example, when you purchase season passes or products or services via the Site; activate season passes at the Parks; or register for sweepstakes, contests and other promotional opportunities.
Information From Third-Party Social Media Platforms. You may be able to register with, log on to, or enhance your profile on this Site by choosing to automatically populate the requested data fields with information you previously provided to a third-party social media platform (such as Facebook or Twitter). By doing this, you are asking the third-party platform to send us information, including personal information, from your profile on that platform. We treat that information as we do for any other information you give to us when you register, log on, or enhance your profile.
Anonymous Information. La Ronde collects information that is sent to us automatically by your web browser or mobile device. This information typically includes your IP address, the name of your operating system, the name and version of your browser, the date and time of your visit, and the pages you visit. The information we receive may depend on your browser or device settings.
We collect Anonymous Information through the use of various technologies to make the Site more interesting and useful to you and for various other purposes related to our business. For example, when you use the Site, we collect your IP address, which is a unique identifier that is associated with your computer. We analyze IP addresses in the aggregate for system administration purposes and to gather broad demographic information. We do not link IP addresses to any Personal Information, so although your session on the Site will be logged, you will remain anonymous to us and the Site. However, La Ronde reserves the right to link Anonymous Information with any other information held by La Ronde.
Generally, we use the information we collect through this Site:
- To provide the information, products and services you request;
- To provide you with effective customer service;
- To provide you with a personalized experience when you use this Site;
- To contact you with information and notices related to your use of this Site;
- To contact you with special offers and other information we believe will be of interest to you (in accordance with any privacy preferences you have expressed to us);
- To invite you to participate in surveys and provide Feedback to us (in accordance with any privacy preferences you have expressed to us);
- To improve the content, functionality and usability of this Site;
- To better understand your needs and interests;
- To improve our products and services;
- To improve our marketing and promotional efforts;
- For security, credit or fraud prevention purposes;
- For any other purpose identified in an applicable Privacy Notice, click-through agreement¹ or other agreement between you and us.
Disclosure to Third Parties for Administrative Purposes. Like many businesses, we sometimes hire other companies to perform certain business-related functions on our behalf such as hosting specific portions of the Site, maintaining databases, administering contests, mailing information and processing payments. When we employ a third party to perform these functions, that third party will only be provided with the particular Personal Information it needs to perform its function, and is required to protect the Personal Information. For third party sponsored contests, or other contests or promotions, we may request Personal Information from you that may be shared with the sponsor upon request.
With Other Users of this Site. You may be able to submit User-Generated Content² on or through this Site. Similarly, User-Generated Content that you post on our Facebook page or through Twitter may automatically appear on this Site using functionality made available by those third-party platforms. In this Policy, “User-Generated Content” or “UGC” refers to content that you post using social networking tools and that does not constitute “Feedback”³. Any personal information contained in UGC can be read, collected, or used by others. In addition, we may use UGC you submit for advertising campaigns and other promotions. Therefore, you should have no expectation of privacy with respect to UGC you submit on or through this Site.
¹You could be asked to express your consent on the Site, for example, by checking a box or clicking on a button marked “I agree”. This type of agreement is known as a “click-through agreement”.
²The term “User-Generated Content” or “UGC” means all of the text, photographs, images, illustrations, graphics, sounds, video and other content you post using the social networking tools we make available to you and that does not constitute “Feedback.”
³The term “Feedback” refers to the content you post on or through this Site that is specifically about how we can improve this Site and the products and services we make available through this Site.
With Third-Party Social Media Platforms. We may provide functionality on this Site that allows you to automatically post information about the actions you take on this Site to a third-party social media platform (such as Facebook or Twitter). If you choose to take advantage of this functionality, people with access to your profile on the third-party platform may be able to see the actions you have taken—for example, the comments you have posted or the items you have purchased. Thus, you should have no expectation of privacy in those actions. Further, if you choose to link your profile on this Site with an account on a third-party social media platform, we may share the information in your profile with that third-party platform.
In aggregate or de-identified form. We use information collected through this Site to create a compiled, aggregate view of usage patterns. We may share aggregate information with third parties so they can better understand our user base. We may also share with third parties information about how particular individuals use this Site, but only on a de-identified basis (“Individualized Data”). Individualized Data is not personally identifiable, but it does reflect the usage patterns of a particular Site user, as opposed to Site users collectively. We may provide basic demographic information (gender and age) in conjunction with providing Individualized Data. Third parties typically use this information for analytical purposes and to market their own products and services. It is possible that third parties will attempt to “re-identify” de-identified data, and you should know that this is possible using external points of reference.
Other Disclosures. In addition, we may disclose Personal Information without providing you with a choice under the following limited circumstances to: (i) protect the legal rights, privacy or safety of La Ronde and it affiliates or its or their employees, agents and contractors; (ii) protect the safety and security of guests to the Parks or the Site; (iii) protect against fraud or other illegal activity or for risk management purposes; (iv) respond to inquiries or requests from public authorities; (v) permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain; or (vi) comply with the law or legal process.
As Described in a Privacy Notice or click-through agreement. We reserve the right to disclose your information as described in any Privacy Notice posted on a page of this Site where you provide that information. By providing your information on that page you will be consenting to the disclosure of your information as described in that Privacy Notice. We also reserve the right to disclose your information as described in any click–through agreement to which you have agreed.
La Ronde takes reasonable precautions to provide a level of security appropriate to the sensitivity of the information we collect. Although we use reasonable measures to help protect your information against unauthorized use or disclosure, we cannot guarantee the security of information provided over the Internet or stored in our databases and will not be responsible for breaches of security beyond our reasonable control.
We recognize the need to provide additional privacy protections for children who visit the Site. At various places on the Site, we may ask users for their age. By using the Site you agree to respond truthfully and accurately about your age. The Site does not knowingly collect personal information or data from children under the age of 14. Children under 14 years of age are expressly prohibited from submitting or posting any Personal Information on the Site.
If you would like to correct or change the Personal Information that you have previously provided us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will take reasonable steps to update or correct Personal Information in our possession.
