When you become a Player, you may be required to provide personal information including your mobile phone number, email address, name, age (because participation in our program is limited to persons 18 years or older), and credit or debit card information. We may require this information to provide our service.
We may also request additional information about you such as the name of participating golf course that you play, which you will not be required to provide, but which we may use to compensate golf courses participating in our program and to enhance the user experience.
You may also provide us with information (i) if you contact us through the Website/App, or (ii) if we conduct and you respond to surveys for research purposes.
When you use the Website/App, our technology may also collect data about your mobile device and internet connection, including the device’s unique device identifier, IP address, operating system, and mobile network connection.
