Golf EQ Privacy Policy

Golf EQ works hard to provide a positive experience for all golfers and others (collectively known as “users”) who visit Golf EQ and is committed to protecting the privacy of our users. This Privacy Policy applies to Golf EQ and its Golf EQ website, including any and all entities that control, or are controlled by, or are affiliated or under common control with, Golf EQ (collectively referred to throughout this Privacy Policy as “we,” “us” or “our”).

Although this Privacy Policy applies to all information that we collect through Golf EQ, not everything in this Privacy Policy will necessarily apply to every product or service offered on Golf EQ. Please note that Golf EQ may contain links to other third-party websites that are not controlled or operated by Golf EQ. This Privacy Policy does not apply to such third-party websites, and Golf EQ is not responsible for the content of such third-party websites or the privacy practices of such third parties. Therefore, Golf EQ encourages you to request and review the privacy policies of any third parties before disclosing your personal information to such parties or when visiting such third-party websites.

If you are under the age of 13, or the legal guardian of a child under the age of 13 who uses our Golf EQ service, please read our Children’s Information Privacy Policy also posted at the Golf EQ website.

What types of information do we collect?

We collect several kinds of information to allow us to provide you with products or services in which you may be interested, but we never sell personal information about you to third parties.

Information Provided to Us by Guests

We collect several kinds of information to allow us to provide you with products or services in which you may be interested, but we never sell or disclose personal information about you to third parties. In order to ensure that users are provided with accurate information about their accounts, and content geared to the interest of that user, we may ask for personal information when a user registers for, logs on to, or visits Golf EQ. The personal information that Golf EQ may collect may include your name, username, password, email address, address, telephone number, and any other personal information that you choose to include in your profile, or in other communications to Golf EQ. You represent and warrant that you have the right and authority or have obtained all necessary consents to provide any information, including any personal information of another individual, that is provided by you to Golf EQ.

For the purposes of creating an account on Golf EQ users provide an email address and can provide additional information at their discretion. User accounts on Golf EQ do not require the use of any personally identifiable information, and an email address for a user is also not required although we require users to have a unique username and password which often is easiest to maintain using a unique email address. When we use or associate other information with information that could be used to identify or contact a Golf EQ user specifically, this other information is considered personal information for purposes of this Privacy Policy.

Golf EQ is an Internet delivered service. As such, Golf EQ may also collect information that may not be personal information, which may include, but is not limited to, the frequency of user visits to the site, the routes by which users access the site and services and use of any hyperlinks available on the sites. Golf EQ or its service providers and agents may process and use this aggregate data for various purposes including, but not limited to, analysis of this data for trends and statistics, development of the site and services and the site and service features and offerings, assessing patterns of use, planning and evaluating updates or improvements. This information is gathered by certain tools and methods such as the collection of your IP address or the use of cookies and is maintained, used and disclosed in aggregate form unless otherwise noted.

While using some of our products or services, users may have the opportunity to provide photographs, videos or other materials that may contain information that would enable identification of the user. Bearing this in mind, all users should review any material sent to ensure that it is appropriate for sharing. Similarly, some of our Golf EQ may offer online social, community or other communication features that allow users to post, or share with others, messages, stories, pictures, artwork, videos, testimonials, lesson plans, or other content. Along with such content, users also may be given the opportunity to post certain personal information about themselves and other miscellaneous information related to the content. Please note that although we may take various steps to protect our users, we cannot guarantee that content posted by a user will not be seen by someone other than the audience intended by the user. By choosing to post items or use any of our social or communication features users acknowledge that they do so at their own risk and will only share information and images which they have a legal right to share.

If we choose to make online social or other communication features or similar services available to children, we will be sure to abide by the applicable United States laws including the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. For more on our policy regarding information collected from children under the age of 13, please also see our Children’s Information Privacy Policy.
