It is important to us that you know how your data is collected and used by The Local Golfer.
The Local Golfer does not sell personal data. In order to operate The Local Golfer programme, we share personal data with some trusted operational suppliers. Again, these companies do not sell your personal data and they are contractually prevented from doing so. Further, all companies with whom we share data can use the data only for these contractually agreed purposes and must handle the data in a confidential and secure manner in accordance with Australian privacy legislation.
Types of personal information collected
The types of personal information we collect may include name, contact details, payment and transaction details/history, authorisations, records of your communications and interactions with us, and details/history of preferences, interests and behaviour relating to transactions, products, services, and activity with our digital services. We may not be able to provide our services without your personal information. For example, we may not be able to offer discounts, manage your membership, or contact you.
How personal information is collected and held
We may collect your personal information, from your interactions and transactions with us. This includes: using your associated identifiers such as payment cards; making a purchase in store; placing an order online; making a non-cash payment; participating in a promotion, competition, or survey; registering for services; using related digital services. We may monitor and record your communications with us (including email and telephone) for security, dispute resolution, and training purposes. We may also collect personal information from third parties including The Local Golfer’s Partners, public sources, information service providers and anyone authorised to act on your behalf. We hold personal information electronically and in hard copy form, both at our own premises and with the assistance of our service providers. We implement a range of measures to protect the security of that personal information. We also take measures in respect of destroying or de-identifying personal information that is no longer needed for any lawful purpose.
Purposes for handling personal information
We handle your personal information in connection with providing, administering, improving and personalising The Local Golfer program, products and services, and those provided by Partners. This can include processing payments, delivering orders, managing promotions, providing refunds and discounts, verifying your identity, communicating with you (including direct marketing), conducting product and market research, maintaining and updating our records, dealing with enquiries from you, and working with our service providers. Using personal information, we endeavour to improve our understanding of your interests, suitability, and behaviour in relation to products, services and offers. We may also handle your personal information to protect our lawful interests and facilitate purchases and potential purchases of our businesses. We may provide marketing communications and targeted advertising to you on an ongoing basis by telephone, electronic messages (for example, email), through our digital services, and by other means. These communications may relate to the products and services we and The Local Golfer Partners provide, and other products which may be of interest to you. You can email us at [email protected] or visit our physical store at 1 Leonay Parade, Pro Shop at Emu Sports Club, Leonay, NSW, 2750 or login to your online account at thelocalgolfer.com.au at any time to opt out of electronic and telephone direct marketing communications. We need to be able to contact you by post to manage your The Local Golfer membership. If you do not want us to send you any postal communications, you may terminate your The Local Golfer membership.
Sharing of personal information
To make it easy for you to deal with The Local Golfer’s Partners and provide you with a more personal and consistent experience, we may exchange and combine personal information with them for the purposes described in our respective privacy policies. We may exchange your personal information with service providers engaged to assist with services including data processing, data analysis, information broking, online computing, printing, contact centre, legal, accounting, business consulting, marketing, research, auditing, archival, delivery, security, investigation and mailing services. We do not share or sell your data to a Third Party.
We provide information and services through a range of digital and online services including websites (e.g.thelocalgolfer.com.au), apps, email, online advertisements, and social media profiles. These services are operated by us to provide a consistent experience, personalise your use of each of those services and provide targeted marketing.
Our systems record a variety of information in relation to interactions with our online services. This can include information about software versions used, device types, device identifiers (like IP address), location data (where available and not disabled by the user), dates, times, file metadata, referring website, data entered, and user activity such as links clicked.
Some information we collect in relation to The Local Golfer’s Digital Services is not related to an individual. In many cases, the information relates only to a device or is of an aggregated or statistical nature, and we will have no way of knowing the identity of the user. In other cases, we may associate information about your use of The Local Golfer’s Digital Services over time with your personal information, for example, when on any occasion you have logged in, followed a link sent to you by email, or we have otherwise been able to identify you. Our online services may contain links to other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or policies of those sites and recommend that you review their privacy policies.
