Privacy Policy

Note: This Privacy Policy is effective as of May 17, 2023

Thank you for using Skigit! We wrote this policy to help you understand what information we collect, how we use it, and what choices you have regarding your information. Because we're an Internet company, some of the concepts below are a little technical, but we've tried our best to explain things in a simple and clear way. We welcome your questions and comments on this policy at

What information do we collect?

We collect information in a few different ways:

1. When you give it to us or give us permission to obtain it.

When you sign up for or use our products, you voluntarily give us certain information. This can include your name, profile photo, skigits, comments, likes, email address you used to sign up, and any other information you provide us. If you're using Skigit on your mobile device, you can also choose to provide us with location data.

You also may give us permission to access your information in other services for example, you may link your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn account to Skigit, which allows us to obtain information from those accounts (e.g., your friends or contacts). The information we obtain from those services often depends on your settings or their privacy policies, so be sure to check what those are.

2. We also get technical information when you use our products.

These days, whenever you use a website, mobile application, or other Internet service, there's certain information that almost always gets created and recorded in an automated way. The same is true when you use our products, and here are some of the types of information we collect.:

Log Data. When you use Skigit, our servers automatically record information ("log data") including information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website or mobile app sends when you are using it. This log data may include your Internet Protocol address, the address of the web pages you visited that had Skigit features, browser type and settings, the date and time of your request, how you used Skigit, and cookie data.

Cookie Data. Depending on how you are accessing our products, we may use "cookies" (small text files sent by your computer each time you visit our website, unique to your Skigit account or your browser) or similar technologies to record log data. When we use cookies, we may use "session" cookies (that last until you close your browser) or "persistent" cookies (that last until you or your browser delete them). For example, we may use cookies to store your language preferences or other Skigit settings so you don't have to set them up every time you visit Skigit. Some of the cookies we use are associated with your Skigit account (including personal information about you, such as the email address you gave us), and other cookies are not. For more detailed information about how we use cookies, please review our Cookies Policy.

Device Information. In addition to log data, we may also collect information about the device you're using Skigit on, including what type of device it is, what operating system you're using, device settings, unique device identifiers, and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you're using and its settings. For example, different types of information are available depending on whether you're using a Mac or a PC, or an iPhone or an Android phone. To learn more about what information your device makes available to us, please also check the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.

3. Our partners and advertisers may share information with us

We may get information about you and your activity off Skigit from our affiliates, advertisers, partners and other third parties we work with. For example:

  • Some websites or apps use Skigit features like our "Save" button. If so, we may collect log information (described above) from those sites or apps.

  • Online advertisers typically share information with the websites or apps where they run ads to measure and/or improve those ads. We also receive this information, which may include information like whether clicks on ads led to purchases or a list of criteria to use in targeting ads.

Contact us as at to learn more about the types of information advertisers may share with.

How do we use the information we collect?

We use the information we collect to provide our products to you and make them better, develop new products, and protect Skigit and our users. For example, we may log how often people use two different versions of a product, which can help us understand which version is better. If you make a purchase on Skigit, we'll save your payment information and contact information so that you can use them the next time you want to buy something on Skigit.

We also use the information we collect to offer you customized content, including:

  • Suggesting Skigits or boards you might like. For example, if you've indicated that you're interested in cooking or visited recipe websites that have Skigit features, we may suggest food-related Skigits, boards, or people that we think you might like.

  • Showing you ads you might be interested in. For example, if you purchased a camSkigitg tent on Skigit, we may show you ads for other outdoorsy products.

  • We also use the information we collect to:

  • Send you updates (such as when certain activity, like reSkigits or comments, happens on Skigit), newsletters, marketing materials and other information that may be of interest to you. For example, depending on your email notification settings, we may send you weekly updates that include Skigits you may like. You can decide to stop getting these updates by updating your account settings (or through other settings we may provide).

  • Help your friends and contacts find you on Skigit. For example, if you sign up using a Facebook account, we may help your Facebook friends find your account on Skigit when they first sign up for Skigit. Or, we may allow people to search for your account on Skigit using your email address.

  • Respond to your questions or comments.

Transferring your information

Skigit is a worldwide service. By using our products or services, you authorize us to transfer and store your information outside of your home country, including in the United States, for the purposes described in this policy. The privacy protections and the rights of authorities to access your personal information in such countries may not be equivalent to those in your home country.

What choices do you have about your information?

Our goal is to give you simple and meaningful choices over your information. If you have a Skigit account, many of the choices you have on Skigit are built directly into the product or your account settings. For example, you can:

  • Access and change information in your profile page at any time, choose whether your profile page is available to search engines, or choose whether others can find your Skigit account using your email address.

  • Link or unlink your Skigit account from an account on another service (e.g., Facebook or Twitter). For some services (like Facebook), you can also choose whether or not to publish your activity on Skigit to that service.

  • Create or be added to a secret board. Secret boards are visible to you and other participants in the board, and any participant may choose to make the contents of the board available to anyone else. For example, another participant may invite someone else to the board, make the board available to an app they use to view Skigit, or even just take an image from the board and email it to their friends.

  • Choose whether Skigit will be customized for you using information from off-Skigit websites or apps. If you have a Skigit account and want to control how your off-Skigit data is used to tailor your experience, you can visit your account settings and update your preferences. If you don't have a Skigit account, or don't want us to customize Skigit for you when you're signed out, you can opt out here .

  • Choose whether your purchases on Skigit will be used to customize recommendations and ads for you. You can view and manage your purchase history by going to "Order history" in your account settings, and if you hide a purchase from your history, we won't use it to customize Skigit for you.

  • Also, we support the Do Not Track browser setting, and you can learn more about how it affects our collection and use of off-Skigit data.

  • Close your account at any time. When you close your account, we'll deactivate it and remove your Skigits and boards from Skigit. We may retain archived copies of your information as required by law or for legitimate business purposes (including to help address fraud and spam).

  • You may have choices available to you through the device or software you use to access Skigit. For example:

  • The browser you use may provide you with the ability to control cookies or other types of local data storage.

  • Your mobile device may provide you with choices around how and whether location or other data is shared with us.

To learn more about these choices, please see the information provided by the device or software provider.

The information we collect may be "personally identifiable" (meaning it can be used to specifically identify you as a unique person) or "non-personally identifiable" (meaning it can't be used to specifically identify you). We use both types of information, and combinations of both types, as described above. We may use or store information wherever Skigit does business, including countries outside your own.

How and when do we share information?

Anyone can see the public boards and Skigits you create, and the profile information you give us. We may also make this public information available through what are called "APIs" (basically a technical way to share information quickly). For example, a partner might use a Skigit API to study what their most popular Skigits are or how their Skigits are being shared on Skigit. The other limited instances where we may share your personal information include:

  • When we have your consent. This includes sharing information with other services (like Facebook or Twitter) when you've chosen to link to your Skigit account to those services or publish your activity on Skigit to them. For example, you can choose to publish your Skigits to Facebook or Twitter.

  • When you buy something on Skigit using your credit card, we may share your credit card information, contact information, and other information about the transaction with the merchant you're buying from. The merchants treat this information just as if you had made a purchase from their website directly, which means their privacy policies and marketing policies apply to the information we share with them.

  • If you buy something on Skigit your credit card number is not shared with the merchant, but contact and transaction information is still shared.

  • Online advertisers typically use third party companies to audit the delivery and performance of their ads on websites and apps. We also allow these companies to collect this information on Skigit.

  • We may employ third party companies or individuals to process personal information on our behalf based on our instructions and in compliance with this Privacy Policy. For example, we share credit card information with the payment companies we use to store your payment information. Or, we may share data with a security consultant to help us get better at identifying spam. In addition, some of the information we request may be collected by third party providers on our behalf.

  • If we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety, rights, or property of the public, any person, or Skigit; or to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues. We may share the information described in this Policy with our wholly-owned subsidiaries and affiliates. We may engage in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, or similar transaction or proceeding that involves the transfer of the information described in this Policy. We may also share aggregated or non-personally identifiable information with our partners, advertisers or others. For example, we may tell an advertiser on Skigit how many people saved something they shared, or the percentage of people who click on a Skigit after viewing it.

How can I manage or delete information about me?

Skigit stores data for as long as it is necessary to provide products and services to you and others. Information associated with your account will be kept until your account is deleted, unless we no longer need the data to provide products and services.

You can delete your account any time by using the Delete Account feature found in your profile page. This feature allows you to send an automated request to our website account administrator, who will carry out the account and data removal process. When you delete your account, we first inactivate your account, maintaining all of your user content and posted data including, photos, videos, comments and friends connections for 30 days. At this time, your content will not be viewable and searchable by others but only maintained in our database, should you decide to return to Skigit. While inactive, we give you the ability to seamlessly return to your account by contacting us at and requesting reactivation. We will review your request then reactivate your account, republishing all of your user content.

If you do not want to delete your account, but only wish to temporarily stop using Skigit, you may request deactivation of your account instead, by emailing and documenting your request in writing. Keep in mind that information that others have shared about you is not part of your account and will not be deleted when you delete your account.

After 30 days should your account remain inactive, we will delete all of your personal data and user content including Skigits, posts, plugin-connections and all your user data for the features that you used as a member of Skigit.

Our Policy on Children's Information

Skigit is not directed to children under 13. If you learn that your minor child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us at

How do we make changes to this policy?

We may change this policy from time to time, and if we do we'll post any changes on this page. If you continue to use Skigit after those changes are in effect, you agree to the revised policy. If the changes are significant, we may provide more prominent notice or get your consent as required by law.

How can you contact us?
