Snozone and your personal data
“Personal Data” is any data that identifies you. The Personal Data which you supply to us you agree will be true. We will deal with your Personal Data in compliance with the current UK & EU data protection legislation, which includes the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into force on 25th May 2018. Please note this applies only to services which we operate and control and not to other companies’ or organisations’ websites to which we may link. For such external services or sites please see their Privacy Policies to understand how they might be handling your data.
Who is Snozone?
Snozone owns and operates three indoor snow slopes in the UK, including Skizone (Basingstoke and Castleford). It is a subsidiary of Capital & Regional PLC. Our registered address is 22 Chapter Street, London, SW1P 4NP.
Our Purpose for Collecting and Processing Personal Data
Our intention is to provide the best possible experience for visitors to our snow slopes, the retailer brands and people that work there, and the local community in which we operate. We collect and process data in order to understand who our customers are, send them appropriate and relevant information, track the performance of our snow centres, and to help provide and improve our services as a whole.
Some data is required in order to operate our services to you, and in some cases we are required to hold certain information for legal compliance, law enforcement or contractual purposes.
Data protection laws set out a number of valid reasons for the collection and processing of personal data. These include: Consent, such as ticking a box to opt-in to receive marketing emails from us; Legitimate Interest; compliance with the law; and, to fulfil contractual obligations.
What Data We Collect
When you order tickets or passes to the Snozone we need to know your name, e-mail address and delivery address, credit/debit card number and expiry date. This allows us to process and fulfil your order. We also ask you for your telephone number(s) so that we can contact you easily if required. We do not store any payment information anywhere on any of our systems.
When entering competitions, either in-centre or via our website, we collect personal data like your contact information in order to administer the competition, for example to ensuring age restrictions are adhered to and in order to notify winners. Prior to 25th May 2018 by entering you will also have been opted-in to receive marketing communications from Snozone in line with pre-GDPR regulations, namely ‘implied consent’. After 25th May 2018 consent to receive news and updates from Snozone requires a separate and unbundled consent from the competition entry.
Personal details are required in order to sign-up to the Snozone Membership scheme, which provides members with offers and promotions at Snozone. These details are required to administer the scheme, such as the posting of membership cards, identifying members, informing them of the current offers and promotions within the scheme, and tracking usage of the scheme.
We may collect electronic data such as IP addresses or device information when you use Snozone services such as the websites or mobile apps in order to monitor the performance of those services and improve their quality. However, the data will only be disclosed on an anonymous and aggregated basis not in a way in which you will be personally identified, unless consent to the contrary has been given.
To protect our centres and staff we operate CCTV systems throughout our centres which record images for security. We do this on the basis of our legitimate business interests. If required to do so we may provide this information to assist with law enforcement.
Where filming is being performed at any of our Snozone venues, signage informing you of this will be clearly displayed so that you are aware. If we ask to photograph you for use in our marketing materials, on our website or across our social media channels, we will obtain your permission in writing in advance of doing so.
We do not currently employ any automated decision-making tools.
With the exception of names used to administer certain elements of our Kids Holiday Camps and SnoAcademy, we do not collect personal data from children under the age of 15.
Use of personal Data for Marketing Communications
We only send post, email, text messages and mobile notifications to you about news and services that we consider may be of interest to you only if you have given us permission to do so or if appropriate where we consider there to a legitimate interest in the information for example if you have signed-up to the Snozone Membership scheme or purchased a product from us and knowledge of your lesson, course details or available offers and promotions is the primary function of the communication.
If you have agreed to be contacted by telephone then calls may be monitored and recorded for quality and training purposes.
Electronic notifications may be sent to you via your internet browser if you have given consent for us to do so. If you subsequently wish to remove consent for these you can do so following the instructions provided by your internet browser software.

When employing Data Processors, we ensure that they comply with data protection laws including ensuring that data is held securely and that only the information required to complete the work is supplied to them.

You accept the inherent security risks of providing information and dealing online over the Internet and will not hold us responsible for any breach of security unless this is due to our negligence or wilful default.
