What Information does PromoGolfBall Collect and How is it Used?
At PromoGolfBall, we collect two types of information: personal information and non-personal information.
We may use your personal information for a number of different purposes, for example to:
We may also collect and summarize customer information in a format that no longer identifies the individual for statistical purposes.
Personal information typically includes your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address. You can always choose not to provide us with any of your personal information. However, if you make this choice we may not be able to provide you with the product, service, or information that you requested.
Non-personal information does not identify you as an individual. For example, we may ask you for your postal code to assist us with planning our promotion.
Listed here are some examples of the ways that we collect information about you and how we use it.
While using our Web Sites, you may be asked to voluntarily provide certain personal information (such as your name, email address, postal address, telephone number, or credit card information). We use this information to complete your transaction and to apply for access to certain special features and functions of the Web Sites. If you choose not to provide requested personal information, you will not be able to use certain features of the Web Sites and you will not be able to engage in transactions through the Web Sites.
All references to our Web Site in this Policy means either PromoGolfBall.com or PromoGolfBall.ca.
From time to time, we may run contests, promotions, or surveys. If you participate, you may be asked for contact information as well as additional optional survey information (for example, product preferences). Information from contest entries will be used to contact you if you win. We may also summarize survey information in a manner that no longer identifies the contest entrants for analysis, but will not share personal information from entries. All contests are subject to rules that will be available with each particular contest..
Like many other Web sites, we automatically collect certain non-personal information regarding Web site users that does not identify you. Examples include the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer, the IP address of your Internet Service Provider, the date and time you access the Web Site, the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked directly to the Web Site, the operating system you are using, the sections of the Web Site you visit, the Web Site pages read and images viewed, and the content you download from the Web Site.
This non-personal information is used for Web Site and system administration purposes and to improve the Web Site.
The Web Site uses "cookies", a technology that installs a small amount of information on a Web Site user's computer to permit the Web Site to recognize future visits using that computer. Cookies enhance the convenience and use of the Web Site. For example, the information provided through cookies is used to recognize you as a previous user of the Web Site (so you do not have to enter your billing information every time), to offer personalized Web page content and information for your use, to track your activity at the Web Site, to respond to your needs, and to otherwise facilitate your Web Site experience. You may choose to decline cookies if your browser permits, but doing so may affect your use of the Web Site and your ability to access certain features of the Web Site or engage in transactions through the Web Site.
Please be advised that PromoGolfBall will never request your personal or financial information by sending out unsolicited emails. If you receive an email purporting to be from PromoGolfBall that asks you to provide confidential information such as your credit card number do not respond and contact us immediately. You should never send confidential personal information by regular email as it is not a secure method of transmission.
Our Web Site contain links to other Web sites or Internet resources. When you click on one of those links you are contacting another Web site or Internet resource. PromoGolfBall has no responsibility or liability for or control over those other Web sites or Internet resources or their collection, use and disclosure of your personal information.
We encourage you to read the privacy policies of those other sites to learn how they collect and use information about you.
PromoGolfBall does not sell your personal information.
PromoGolfBall may use your personal information with certain service providers in order to verify and validate information, and to address customer service matters.. Examples of service providers include credit card issuers and delivery services. To reduce the risk of fraud or misuse of personal information, PromoGolfBall may also verify your personal information, including but not limited to your address and credit card information, with third party service providers.
We will use reasonable efforts to ensure that your personal information is used in a manner that is consistent with this Policy. If you do not wish us to provide your personal information to those service providers, we may be unable to process your transaction.
The security of your personal information is a high priority for PromoGolfBall. We maintain appropriate safeguards and current security standards to protect your personal information, whether recorded on paper or captured electronically, against unauthorized access, disclosure, or misuse.
Although we cannot take responsibility for any theft, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, loss, alteration or destruction of data by a third party, we take reasonable precautions to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.
