Privacy Policy


This Security and Privacy Statement applies to this website which is operated by Golf4Golf (ABN 94 078 253 915) under the domain name "www.golf4golf.com" ("Golf4Golf Website"). The Golf4Golf Website is operated on behalf of Fennu Pty Ltd.

The information described in this Security and Privacy Statement may be shared between members of Fennu Pty Ltd. This Security and Privacy Statement may also apply to services offered by Golf4Golf on websites hosted by third parties. If so, express reference to this Security and Privacy Statement will be made on those websites.

Golf4Golf understands and appreciates that you, as a Golf4Golf Website visitor, are concerned about your privacy and about the confidentiality and security of information we may gain about you online. Golf4Golf is committed to protecting your privacy. This Golf4Golf Security and Privacy Statement explains how your personal information will be treated as you access and interact with the Golf4Golf Website.

As the Golf4Golf Website develops and as technology evolves, Golf4Golf will continue to strive to provide you with better and more customised services and with a more effective website. Golf4Golf encourages you to review the Security and Privacy Statement periodically because the Security and Privacy Statement may change from time to time.

The Golf4Golf Privacy Policy explains how Golf4Golf generally protects your privacy and confidentiality. The principles set out in the Golf4Golf Privacy Policy also apply to Fennu Pty Ltd websites.

In addition to the provisions of this Security and Privacy Statement, there may also be specific and additional privacy provisions which apply to certain sections of the Golf4Golf Website. Because those specific and additional provisions also relate to your privacy protection, you should review them wherever they are accessible by you on the Golf4Golf Website. In the event of any inconsistency between the provisions of this Security and Privacy Statement and those other specific and additional provisions, the specific and additional provisions will prevail.

Security of Information

Golf4Golf takes reasonable steps to preserve the security of cookie and personal information in accordance with the Golf4Golf Website Terms of Use and this Security and Privacy Statement. If your browser is suitably configured, it will advise you whether the information you are sending us will be secure (encrypted) or not secure (unencrypted).

Golf4Golf regularly reviews developments in security and encryption technologies. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as totally secure. Accordingly, although Golf4Golf strives to protect such information, Golf4Golf cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we take reasonable steps to preserve the security of the information in our own systems.

Information Collected

The information that Golf4Golf collects about you is dependent on how you use the facilities offered by the Golf4Golf Website.

If you visit an unsecure area of the Golf4Golf Website (that is, an area where you are not required to log on) to read, browse or download information, our system will record the date and time of your visit to our site, the pages viewed and any information downloaded. However, our systems will not record any personally identifiable information.

If you decide to complete an online application form or online survey, the information that you enter into the online form or survey will only be collected by Golf4Golf if you submit your online application or survey. If at any stage you cancel your application or log out prior to submitting your application or survey, the information you have entered up to that point will be automatically deleted. You can suspend and save online applications. If you suspend or save your application, for example because you wish to complete it at another time, the information that you have entered will be retained in our systems so that you may recover the information when you resume your application. You may only recover this information within 30 days. After this time, the information is deleted. Online applications that have been suspended or saved will not be viewed by Golf4Golf and are not processed by Golf4Golf.

The Golf4Golf Website may also contain links to the websites of third party providers of goods and services ("Third Party websites"). If you have accessed Third Party websites through the Golf4Golf Website and if those third parties collect information about you, Golf4Golf may also collect or have access to that information as part of our arrangements with those third parties.

Where you access a Third Party website from the Golf4Golf Website, cookie information, information about your preferences or other information you have provided about yourself may be shared between Golf4Golf and the Third Party. You cannot usually be identified from the information that is shared; if you can be identified from this information, Golf4Golf will seek your consent before sharing such information.

Third Party websites should contain their own privacy statements and those third parties are responsible for their own privacy practices.

Collection of IP Addresses

It is necessary for Golf4Golf to collect your IP address for your interaction with various parts of the Golf4Golf website. Your IP address is the identifier for your computer when you are using the internet.

For instance, Golf4Golf collects and stores your IP address when you log into your Golf4Golf account. As part of our security for Golf4Golf, Golf4Golf uses this information when we attempt to detect and prevent fraudulent transactions in Internet Banking. We store your IP address for security and audit purposes. Your IP address will not be used by Golf4Golf or released to any Third Party except in the case of security, inappropriate behaviour or fraud issues, such as unauthorised access to your or our computer systems or fraudulent transactions.

Advertising and Tracking

Golf4Golf uses Google AdWords to deliver its online advertising where Golf4Golf banner advertisements are placed on Third Party websites ('Advertising Company').

When you view a Golf4Golf advertisement on a Third Party website, the advertising company uses 'cookies' and in some cases 'web beacons' to collect information such as:

  • The server your computer is logged onto.
  • Your browser type.
  • The date and time of your visit.
  • The performance of their marketing efforts.

When you access the Golf4Golf Website after viewing a Golf4Golf advertisement on a Third Party website, the advertising company collects information on how you utilise the Golf4Golf Website (eg which pages you view) and whether you complete an online application.

Cookies

Golf4Golf uses "cookies" as a fundamental part of our interaction with your Internet browser. The purpose is to provide you with better and more customised service and with a more effective website.

A "cookie" is a small text file placed on your computer by our web page server. A cookie can later be retrieved by our webpage servers. Cookies are frequently used on websites and you can choose if and how a cookie will be accepted by configuring your preferences and options in your browser.

Golf4Golf uses cookies for two different purposes. We allocate a cookie to each Internet browser that visits the Golf4Golf Website. This cookie does not allow us to collect personally identifiable information about you. We use this cookie:

  • to allocate a Golf4Golf identification number to your Internet browser (but we cannot identify you from this number);
  • to determine if you have previously visited the Golf4Golf Website;
  • to identify pages you have accessed and Third Party websites you have accessed; and for security purposes.

Most of the Golf4Golf Website operates by using this type of cookie.

Accordingly, if you wish to make full use of the Golf4Golf Website, it is required that you accept cookies.

Golf4Golf also uses cookies for secure services (that is, an area where Golf4Golf uses encryption) on the Golf4Golf Website. These cookies are used for a variety of purposes, including for security and personalisation reasons. If your browser is configured to reject all cookies you will be unable to use secure services on the Golf4Golf Website that require cookies in order to participate. Those services include (but are not limited to):

  • Online applications
  • Online surveys

You may still be able to use some information-only pages even if you do not accept cookies.

How we Handle Email

We will preserve the content of any e-mail that you send us, if we believe that we have a legal requirement to do so. Your e-mail message content may be monitored by our Golf4Golf employees for security issues including where e-mail abuse is suspected; our response to you may be monitored for quality assurance issues.

Use and Disclosure of Information

We will only use or disclose personal information or information generated by cookies in accordance with the Golf4Golf Privacy Policy, specific and additional provisions relating to privacy which apply to certain areas of the Golf4Golf Website and as otherwise set out in this Security and Privacy Statement.

Acceptance and Changes to Security and Privacy Statement

You acknowledge and accept that your use of the Golf4Golf Website indicates your acceptance of the Golf4Golf Website Terms of Use and the Security and Privacy Statement.

This is the current Security and Privacy Statement. It replaces any other Security and Privacy Statement for the Golf4Golf Website published on the Golf4Golf Website to date. Golf4Golf may at any time vary the Security and Privacy Statement by publishing the varied Security and Privacy Statement on the Golf4Golf Website.
