SFGolfAdvisor.com Privacy Policy


 

SFGolfAdvisor.com is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. Please review our Privacy Policy and be advised that this is applicable to this SFGolfAdvisor.com Website only.

General Information

You can visit and enjoy SFGolfAdvisor.com ("Website") without disclosing any personal information. However, we do offer some special services. For these services to work properly we will need you to share with us certain personal information.

Information from Unregistered Visitors

As a visitor to our SFGolfAdvisor.com you can access the Website's home page and browse some areas of the site without disclosing any personally identifiable information. We do track information provided to us by your browser, including the Web site you came from (known as the "referring URL"), the type of browser you use, the time and date of access, and other information that does not personally identify you.

Information Collected Upon Registration

Users registering for services on our Web site are asked to provide us with identifying information, such as first and last name, street address, e-mail address, telephone number (e.g. home, work, mobile and/or fax), contact information, and other personal information. 

Special Offers and Promotions

With your permission, we may also send you e-mails with special offers and promotions. If you don't want to receive these, you may change your preferences.

Additional Forms and Email

We may also ask you to provide additional information after you register if you want to obtain additional services or information or to resolve complaints or concerns. In some cases we may ask users for information after they register, such as credit card information. Where necessary (for example, to process an order for a purchase), our Website may contact financial or credit organizations to confirm customer credit cards.

Cookies

To help us serve you better, we collect information that does not identify you personally, but rather identifies your computer or browser. This is done by using little files called "cookies" and by tracking IP addresses.

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a Website's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive.

Cookies operate in the background, and you can turn them off if you wish, but doing so may impair your ability to use some of the features on the Website. Although cookies do not normally contain personally identifiable information, if you are a registered user, we may elect to associate your registration information with cookies our Website places on your computer's hard drive. Associating a cookie with your registration data allows us to offer increased personalization and functionality. For example, you can elect to have our Website "remember" your user name and password and bypass the sign-in process on each visit to the site. Without cookies, this functionality would not be possible.

We may use cookies to make the Website work better by, for example, keeping track of your login name, password and, if you want to buy things while on the Website, the "shopping cart."

If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the user to accept or reject cookies. If you set your browser not to accept cookies, you may not be able to take advantage of certain services on the Website.

We may also use IP addresses to analyze trends, help us administer the Website, track the movement of visitors, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Aggregated Demographic Information

We may share aggregated demographic information with third parties, but this information is not linked to any personal information that can identify you or another individual person. Therefore, no personal information is disclosed in this manner.

Third Parties

In addition to aggregate information, some kinds of personally identifiable information may be shared with third parties as described below.

Business Transfers

If we transfer a business unit (such as a subsidiary) or an asset (such as a Website) to another company, we will require them to honor the applicable terms of this Privacy Policy.

Disclosure

Your personal information may be provided, as required by law, pursuant to government or judicial subpoenas, warrants or orders.  Any information provided or housed by this site related to SFGolfAdvisor.com will be provided when necessary to any federal agency in order to prevent, investigate or take action against illegal activities.

Associates 

We may contract with other companies and individuals to help us provide services. For example, we may host some of our Web site on another company's computers, hire technical consultants to maintain our Web-based information, or work with companies to remove repetitive information from customer lists, analyze data, provide marketing assistance, and provide customer service. In order to perform their jobs, these other companies may have limited access to some of the personal information we maintain about our users. We require all such companies to comply with the terms of our Privacy Policy, to limit their access to any personal information to the minimum necessary to perform their obligations, and not to use the information they may access for purposes other than fulfilling their responsibilities to us.

We use our best efforts to limit the use of other companies in areas where personally identifiable healthcare information may be involved.

Consent

We may release personally identifiable information to a third party in accordance with your consent, subject to the purposes and limits that we disclose when we request your consent.

When we share information with third parties, we ask that they agree in writing to abide by our Privacy Policy. If we discover that a third party inadvertently disclosed personal information about any of our users, we will take immediate action to prevent further occurrences.

Security Practices

Your preferences are password protected for your privacy and security. In certain areas, we use industry-standard SSL encryption to protect data transmissions.

Reviewing Personal Information

If you want to update your personal information please contact our Privacy Administrator.

Choice

Our registration and order forms contain a box for you to indicate whether or not you consent to receive special offers and promotions from us. Unless you give us your consent to use your personal information for these purposes, we will only use it to complete the transaction or provide the service or product you have requested. If you indicate that you consent to receive communications or solicitations, but you later change your mind, you can revise your preferences.

Links

The Website may contain links to other sites produced by SFGolfAdvsior.com and websites operated by unrelated third parties. Please note that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of third party websites. We encourage you to be aware of this when your leave the Website and to read the privacy policies of every website that collects personally identifiable information from you. The Privacy Policy applies only to this Website.

Children Under Age Thirteen

Because of federal law, we cannot collect any personal information from a child under the age of thirteen without the consent of that child's parent. The statements in this Privacy Policy generally about our collection and use of personal information also apply to our treatment of personal information from children under the age of thirteen, with the added protection of the special rules that follow.
