PRIVACY POLICY

Tracy Minerva Golf, LLC. (the “TMG” or “we” or “us” or “our”), a limited liability company, recognizes the importance our members, donors, visitors to our web sites and users of our mobile applications place on the privacy of their information. We created this privacy policy statement (“Privacy Policy”) to demonstrate our commitment to protecting the privacy of your information as described below and to explain the privacy policies and procedures of the TMG.

This Privacy Policy describes how the TMG collects, uses, and shares: (1) information gathered from visitors to the web site tracyminervagolf.com/basicsgolfinstruction.com (the “Site” or the “TMG Web Sites”) and mobile applications (the “Apps”) where this Privacy Policy appears (the Site and the Apps are collectively referred to herein as the “Services”), and (2) information collected offline from our members and donors.

Please review this Privacy Policy carefully, for it contains important information. If you do not want us to be able to gather and use information about you as set forth herein, please do not use this Site or the Apps or provide offline data or information. The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to identify for you the nature of information that may be collected about or from you, the way in which such information may be used and disclosed, and to offer other helpful information. This Privacy Policy is part of our Terms of Service (the “User Agreement”), which governs your use of the Site and the Services, as defined therein. By using this Site and the Services, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy and agree to receive future revisions to our Privacy Policy through our Site. Unless otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, the defined terms used below have the same meaning set forth in our User Agreement.

TYPES OF INFORMATION COLLECTED

The TMG collects two types of information from users of the Services: (1) information that can be used to specifically identify or contact an individual (“Personal Information”) and (2) non-personal information collected automatically, for example, as you interact with our Services that cannot, in itself, be used to specifically identify or contact an individual (“Non-Personal Information”).

Personal Information. We receive and store any personal information you provide to us through our Site or give us in any other way, such as when you register an Account through our Site, request information, products or services from us through the Site, complete a survey on the Site, or communicate with us via email through the Site or an email provider. This personal information that we gather from you may include, without limitation:
• Contact Information (e.g. your/third party name(s), address, telephone number, email);
• Password or other login credentials (selected by you) to create and access your accounts on the Services;
• Professional credentials;
• Username & password;
• Age, gender and other demographic information;
• Golf background, such as whether you are an amateur or a professional, the name and address of your golf club, and your USGA Handicap Index;
• Information about your interests in and use of various products, programs and services;
• Financial information such as credit card number
• Geo-location;

The above are only examples of the types of Personal Information we may collect. The actual types of Personal Information collected depend on the specific product or service you request, the types of transactions you conduct on the Services, and the various activities in which you participate.

Non-Personal Information. If you are using one of our Services, we will automatically capture certain Non-Personal Information about you and your use of the Service. For example, we automatically recognize and collect:
• Your Internet service provider and domain name;
• Usage and “clickstream” data, which includes the type of device and browsing software you are using and their settings (including language settings), your browser ID, general geographic information derived from your IP address, URL information, the address of the web site from which you linked to a Service, the pages, content or ads you see or click on during your visit and when and for how long you do so, items you download, any search terms you have entered on the Services or a referral site, and the time stamps of your visits to the Services;
• App data, including counts of the screens and features of the App that are used, the countries from which the App is used, time stamps of uses, device language settings, and the types of devices, operating systems, carriers, IP addresses and wireless connections our users are using to access the App;
• Unique numerical identifiers, including mobile device identification numbers;
• Information about your interactions with our email messages;
• Geolocation information, including precise information about the location of your mobile device, to the extent that such information is provided by your device.

The above are only examples of the types of Non-Personal Information we may collect. The actual types of Non-Personal Information collected depend on the specific product or service you request, the types of transactions you conduct on the Services, and the various activities in which you participate.

We use Personal Information and Non-Personal Information to enhance and customize services and features for you, to improve the Services we provide to you, and to communicate with you.

Registering a profile or participation in surveys or contests is completely voluntary, therefore you have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Where this information is required for participation, and you choose to participate you hereby give consent for the collection of any and all information.

Automatic Information Collection. We (and our service providers) may use management and analytic products and tools that we own or that are owned by a third-party to gather certain information about your use of the Site and Services. The products and tools may include cookies, beacons, JavaScript, and other technologies. From time to time, we (and our service providers) may also collect information such as the pages of the Site that you visit, your search keywords, your operating system version, IP address and type of browser you are using, or other such information. The information we collect enables us to run Site usage tools and create statistics about our Site. These statistics help us to better understand how our Site is being used and what we can do to make it more useful to visitors and users. We may also collect information about your computer or software to alert you of any technical or compatibility deficiencies that may disrupt your use of the Site or the Services offered through the Site.

Note that if you link from our Site for purposes of purchasing or using certain products or services, you will be traveling to other sites operated by other entities with different privacy policies, and the information you provide on those sites is not governed by this Privacy Policy.
