Privacy Policy

Customers are at the heart of everything we do.

At Golf in Society we are committed to protecting your privacy. We use the information we collect to ensure we continue to deliver services that meet your needs . Please read on for details about our privacy policy. 

Controllers of personal information 

Any personal information provided or to be gathered at is controlled by Golf in Society, Grovedene, Carlton Minniot, North Yorkshire, YO7 4NJ.

What information do we collect? How do we use it? 

When you apply to use our services, we need to know your name, email address, telephone number and who to contact in an emergency. We also require the same information for your loved one(s) where appropriate. 

In addition, we ask for you to complete a short questionnaire, this helps us determine the most suitable service for you and your loved one(s).

We send out newsletters only to those that have opted in for this service. Customers are able to opt out at any time – details of how to opt out appear on every newsletter and can usually be found at both the top and bottom of the newsletter.  Users will be able to opt out either through a dedicated unsubscribe link.

How does Golf in Society protect customer information? 

 As required by the UK Data Protection Legislation, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information you have given us, to prevent unauthorised access. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we are able to disclose sensitive information to you. 

Will Golf in Society disclose the information it collects to outside parties? 

Golf in Society does not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others unless you choose/consent to receive information from our trusted third parties. If you opt to receive information,  you will continue to receive it until such time as you choose to opt out of these third party communications.

When a customer responds to a promotion offered in conjunction with a third party, that third party may, from time to time, collect information about those customers. They will only then be contacted if they have opted-in to receive further information.

Golf in Society is keen to demonstrate the difference we make to people’s lives. As a result we capture and provide aggregate statistics about our customer behaviour, health & wellbeing and their feedback on our service, as well as their views on wider societal issues.  These statistics will include no personally identifying information. Most research is conducted internally, however we do work with academic researchers to perform these functions on our behalf from time to time.

Such researchers will have access to personal information needed to perform these functions, but may not use it for any other purposes and are required to process the data in accordance with the UK’s Data Protection legislation.

Golf in Society Customer Feedback Policy 

Customers who submit feedback to us must confirm that they have written their reviews based on their own opinions and experiences and that the information contained in their reviews are factual.

Any material considered inappropriate or offensive will not be published or will be amended.

By submitting a feedback form, customers grant us permission to publish it online or via print media and, if necessary, edit it for clarity and typos.

We never publish a reviewer’s name in full (Christian name and surname initial only).

In summary 

We are committed to protecting your privacy. We use the information we collect to make using our service as easy as possible. We do not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others unless you choose to receive information from trusted third parties.
