Jurisdiction and Choice of Law
This Site is controlled and operated by GMS from its offices within Canada.

Those who choose to access this Site from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws.
These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the Province of MT, as it is applied to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within such Province. Any action you, any third party or GMS brings to enforce these Terms and Conditions or in connection with any matters related to this Site shall be brought only in the Provincial or Federal Courts located in the city of Glacier Mountaineering Society, and you expressly consent to the jurisdiction of said courts.
Our privacy is important to us, and we imagine that you feel the same way. We explicitly ask you when we need information that personally identifies you ("Personal Information"). When you sign up for membership with GMS, we agree to not sell, rent, or distribute your Personal Information in any way (however, remember that GMS is a public directory and other members can see whatever information you choose to make public).
Security: The GMS will work diligently to protect the security of your Personal Information. Your data is kept in a secure environment protected from access by unauthorized parties. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access by storing your password in a secure location and ensuring you log off when finished visiting GMS using a shared computer.
E-mail: We use your Personal Information to operate GMS and we may occasionally contact you with your consent. GMS will never intentionally send unsolicited e-mail messages that could legitimately be construed as spam. All e-mails sent from GMS will be sent only to those that have opted-in and will contain opt-out instructions, should you decide to remove yourself from our e-mail distribution list.
Statistics: Your information is also used in aggregate form on the GMS web site statistics page to allow other web site users to get a better understanding of who makes up the club, without revealing any individual data.
Updating & Removing Personal Information: GMS provides you with a way in which you can alter or remove the Personal Information listed in the member network, via a profile update page in the member area. If you wish to have your membership registration removed, simply log into the member area and request that your account be closed.
Surveys: GMS may periodically conduct individual voluntary member surveys. We encourage our members to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the club. The responses we collect from online surveys are anonymous.
IP Address: The GMS uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our web site. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information. This information is used in a way that it does not display information that identifies individual members.
Third Party Links: GMS contains links to a variety of third party sites to enhance the member experience. GMS has no control of either the content or privacy policies of such sites, nor should such links be considered an endorsement of these sites except where otherwise noted.
Children: Protecting the privacy of the young is especially important to GMS. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information on our web site from those we actually know are under 18, and no part of our web site is intended for use by those under 18.
Abuse: We may provide your personal information to the police or other investigating agencies to assist them in the invesigation of any suspected violations of law. We also have the right to share your name and contact information with our attorneys, in the event of serious violations of conduct.
If you have questions about this policy, please e-mail us at email@example.com.
