TYPES OF INFORMATION COLLECTED
The NGA 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;
- Health information (for example, if you submit a request through the Services to use a golf cart at a NGA championship);
- 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
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.
INFORMATION COLLECTION TECHNIQUES
The NGA uses passive tracking tools to automatically collect Information, such as browser cookies, web beacons, pixels or similar technologies.

We combine information. Information obtained through the Services (including both Personal Information and Non-Personal Information) may be combined and used in conjunction with information obtained through sources other than the Services or at different times, including both offline and online sources and from third parties.
