Read Privacy Policy for GolfNow

WideOpenTee Privacy Policy


We know that you care how information about you is used and shared. We

appreciate your trust and we will do so carefully and sensibly. By visiting our site,

you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

We partner with third parties in providing information about golf courses.


Will you or your partners send unsolicited email?

Our system powers permission-based Internet marketing only; sending

personalized messages from partners and affiliates to customers. The transmission

of unsolicited commercial email is expressly forbidden through our system.


How can I stop a partner from sending me more email?

Each email sent through our system contains an easy, automated way for you to

stop receiving email from that partner. Simply follow the instructions at the end of

any email. If you have received unwanted, unsolicited email, please paste a copy of

that email with your comments to our contact form for review.


How do you help prevent unsolicited email?

*     We only allow partners to communicate with individuals with whom they

already have a relationship. If other sources of information are used, they

may only send email to individuals who have expressly shared their address

or opted-in.

*     We require partners to personalize their communication with information that

indicates they have an existing relationship with the customer.

*     If partners use an external source for customer data, we require those

partners to supply the source to us in the event recipients complain about

receiving unsolicited email.


What personal information do you gather?

The information we gather from customers helps us personalize and continually

improve your experience. Below are the types of information we gather.

*     Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on

our website/email or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide

certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of

many of our features. We use the information that you provide for purposes

such as responding to your requests, customizing future promotions,

improving our functionality and communicating with you.


*     Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information

whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we use

"cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web

browser accesses our email program. A number of companies offer utilities

designed to help you visit websites anonymously. Although we will not be

able to provide you with a personalized experience if we cannot recognize

you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist.


*     Email Communications: To help us make emails more useful and interesting,

we often receive a confirmation when you open email from us if your

computer supports such capabilities. We also compare our customer list to

lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending

unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not want to receive email

from us, you can send an email to at any time. 


*     Information from Other Sources: For reasons such as improving

personalization of our service (for example, providing better product

recommendations or special offers that we think will interest you), we might

receive information about you from other sources and add it to your account

information. Sometimes we also receive updated delivery and address

information from these other sources so that we can correct our records and

deliver your next purchase or communication more easily.


What about cookies?

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive

through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to

provide features such as personalization and your tee time preferences.


Do you share information you receive?

Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we will

not sell it to others. We share customer information only with our other golf course


*     Agents: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on

our behalf. Examples include email promotions, data entry, removing

repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing

marketing assistance, processing credit card payments and providing

customer service. They have access to personal information needed to

perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

*     Promotional Offers: Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of

customers on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give

that business your name and address. If you do not want to receive such

offers, please adjust your Profile Preferences.

*     Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell

or buy additional golf courses or assets. In such transactions, customer

information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the

unlikely event any or all of our assets are acquired, customer information will

be one of the transferred assets.

*     Protection of ourselves and others: We release account and other personal

information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; or

protect the rights, property or safety of ourselves or others. This includes

exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud

protection and credit risk reduction.

*     With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice

when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an

opportunity to choose not to share the information.


How secure is information about you?

*     We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by

using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you


*     Our SSL certificate is provided by digicert Security Services. We use the URL when transmitting secure


*     We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card number when

confirming a reservation. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card

number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.

*     It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your

password and to your computer. Be sure to sign out when finished using a

shared computer.
