When you register with the BFC AZ service, our registration form may require you to give us certain information such as your name, e-mail address, and zip code, and asks for other optional information. BFC AZ will also collect other information you volunteer to us through use of our service. You may always choose not to provide such voluntary information to us; however, this may limit our ability to provide you with a specific service or particular content.
When we send messages to you or others, we may provide a URL link to the BFC AZ site that contains an alphanumeric identifier, which allows us to identify the person to whom we sent the message so that we can personalize our content for that individual.
BFC AZ uses pixel tags to gather information about the e-mails we send to our registered users and to recipients of messages. Pixel tags are tiny graphic files, not visible to the human eye, that are included in our HTML-encoded e-mail messages. When such a message is opened in an HTML-capable e-mail program, the recipient's computer will access our server to retrieve the pixel tag file, allowing us to record and store, along with your e-mail address, the date and time the recipient viewed the invite or reminder, that the recipient's e-mail program is capable of receiving HTML-encoded e-mail, and other standard logging information.
The information described above in the Section entitled "Information Collected" is referred to collectively in this policy as "Data."
Use of Information
We use the collected Data to calculate the amount of money pledged on a per birdie basis and to contact you if necessary. A valid e-mail address is required to communicate with you regarding your pledge.
We may also use the Data to send you information about the Waste Management Phoenix Open, which might be of interest to you. In addition, we may use your Data if we need to contact you regarding the use of our service. You may choose to stop receiving future communications from us; please see the Opt-Out section below.
Disclosure of Data
BFC AZ may disclose your Data, the contents of your private communications if required to do so by law, or as otherwise stated in this policy, or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (1) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on BFC AZ; (2) protect and defend the rights or property of BFC AZ; or (3) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of its members or the public. Also, certain technical processing of e-mail messages and their content may be required to: (1) send and receive messages; (2) conform to connecting networks' technical requirements; (3) conform to the limitations of the Service; or (4) conform to other similar requirements.
This site has industry standard security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control and we make good faith efforts to store the information collected by the BFC AZ service in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public, but we cannot guarantee complete security.
