Privacy Policy

Information Collection and Use
A few sections of this web site contain areas where visitors can provide personally identifiable information to the Vermont Department of Tourism (VDTM). Such information is stored and used to track activity on this web site. VDTM also will use this information to contact you when you request information about Vermont.

Cookies
VDTM's Website uses cookies to both authenticate those using the Itinerary Planner and to gather statistical information. In this way we can improve our site by recognizing our return visitors and follow what pages they access. VDTM does not correlate that information with individual users, but rather just tracks user patterns in general. VDTM does this in order to study the usefulness of the content to our visitors and to see if the navigational structure is helpful in getting you to the information you seek.

Requests for Travel Packets
Physical mailing addresses (Street or PO Box) entered by visitors requesting our seasonal Travel Packet are provided to VDTM's tourism related partners for follow-up when someone elects to "receive additional planning information" on our request form. Unless required by law, VDTM will not distribute visitor's e-mail addresses or telephone numbers to any outside marketing services or organizations. A VDTM representative may contact you as part of VDTM's on-going customer service evaluation; or, when you have expressed an interest in a particular service offered by VDTM; or, if you have asked to receive updated information about Vermont in VDTM's E-newsletter. A VDTM representative may also contact you via email with announcements regarding new features on this Website or special events that match your interests. All VDTM E-messages offer an address to opt out of any further mailings.

The Vermont Itinerary Planner
The information collected is used to provide our visitors with this service. Information on interests, preferences, etc. is used to assure that they see the information that is relevant and useful to them.  Email addresses are collected to confirm the identity of the person registering and to supply password reminders.  VermontVacation.com may use these addresses to send out updates as new features are added to the itinerary planner or other areas of the site.  We will not sell nor supply this information to other parties.  Mailing may be send by VermontVacation.com in partnership with other relevant businesses such as the Vermont Ski Areas to provide relevant information on visiting Vermont.

Public Access to Information
Please note that all information collected by this web site, and other State of Vermont web sites, is subject to the statutory provisions related to public access to information. See 1 V.S.A. §§ 315-320.
