The following information summarizes the various ways that The Golf Wish, Inc. collects and uses the personally identifiable information garnered through our website, (“Website”).

If you contact us by email through the Website, we reserve the right to also keep a record of the email itself and any personally identifiable information provided in that email and any others that result, in order to respond to them and for any other purpose described in this Privacy Policy.

Your IP address is usually associated with your Internet Service Provider, your company or your university, and may identify your physical location.


By using the Website, you consent to the policies and practices described in this Privacy Policy. We may change our Privacy Policy from time to time. The Golf Wish, Inc. does not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others except to provide products or services you've requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances: (a) to protect the security of our Website and our rights; (b) in response to legal process or proceedings, to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims and (c) when we believe in good faith that the law requires such action.  For example, we specifically reserve the right to disclose your personal information if we reasonably believe it is needed for any of the following reasons:

We will use your information only as permitted by law. Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. As one example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from third party sources to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive. Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners, but cannot be used to contact you individually.


Our Website may use "cookies, Flash objects or similar electronic tools to collect information, such as the IP address of your computer, to enhance and customize your experience with this Website. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer and which collects information about your use of this Website, such as the Web pages visited, the date and the time of a visit, the Web sites you visited immediately before, etc. Cookies may be stored on the user's hard drive for an extended period of time. Cookies served by our Website do not gather demographic information about our users. Cookies may also be used to provide our advertisers with targeted advertising opportunities, and advertising vendors that serve ads on our Website may also use their own cookies. You may choose not to accept any cookies from any party by changing the settings on your browser. However, if you set your browser to refuse cookies, some portions of our Website may not function properly. Additionally, Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads to this Website. Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to our users based on their visit to our Website and other sites on the Internet. You have the option to opt out of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.


We may use personally identifying information you supply through the Website to provide you with the goods and/or service you have requested. If you do not wish to receive future commercial communications from us by e-mail, simply follow the unsubscribe instructions contained within the e-mail.

We reserve the right to use, transfer, sell, and share aggregated, anonymous data about our users as a group for any business purpose, such as analyzing usage trends and seeking compatible advertisers and business partners.

As our business changes, we may buy or sell various assets. In the event all or a portion of the assets owned or controlled by The Golf Wish, Inc., or any subsidiary or affiliated entity are sold, assigned, transferred or acquired by another company, the information from and/or about our Website users may be among the transferred assets.


We expect our business partners, advertisers and third-party affiliates to respect the privacy of our users. However, third parties, including our business partners, advertisers, affiliates and other content providers accessible through our Website, may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. For example, during your visits to our Website you may link to, or view as part of a frame on a Website page, certain content that is actually created or hosted by a third party. Also, through a page on the Website you may be introduced to, or be able to access, information, Web sites, advertisements, features, contests or sweepstakes offered by other parties. We are not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing information on a feature or page operated by a third party.

While on our Website, our advertisers, business partners or other third parties may use cookies or other technology to attempt to identify some of your preferences or retrieve information about you. For example, some of our advertising may be served by third parties and may include cookies that enable the advertiser to determine whether you have seen a particular advertisement before. Through features available on our Website, third parties may use cookies or other technology to gather information. We do not control the use of this technology or the resulting information and are not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties.

Our Website contains links to other sites. Please be aware we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Website and to read the privacy statements of each and every site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Website.


This Website is not intended for use by children, especially those under age 13. No one under age 13 is allowed to provide any personal information or use our services.  If we discover we have received any information from a child under 13 in violation of this Privacy Policy, we will delete that information immediately.


Because no data transmission over the Internet is completely secure, and no system of physical or electronic security is impenetrable, The Golf Wish, Inc. can not guarantee the security of the information you send to us or the security of our servers or databases, and by using the Website you agree to assume all risk in connection with the information sent to us or collected by us when you use the Website. We take precautions to protect your personally identifiable information by encrypting certain transmissions from you to us.  For example, when you make a purchase from our Website, your transmission is encrypted using SSL technology, to minimize the possibility that an unauthorized third party can read or otherwise intercept your personally identifiable information.  However, no computer system is completely secure. Due to this, we cannot guarantee the safety of your personally identifiable information.  In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you. If notification is appropriate, we may notify you by e-mail (provided we have your e-mail address).


We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time. Please check this page periodically for changes. Your continued use of our Website following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes, even if you fail to review this Privacy Policy after it has been changed. Information collected prior to the time any change is posted will be used according to the rules and laws that applied at the time the information was collected.


This Privacy Policy and the use of this Website are governed by Illinois law. The exclusive jurisdiction for any claim, dispute, or litigation (“Litigation”) arising out of the operation of the Website or this Privacy Policy shall be vested in the federal and state courts located in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois, and such courts shall have sole and exclusive jurisdiction over the parties and the subject matter of any such Litigation. You hereby agree to consent to and hereby waive all arguments or claims regarding venue for such Litigation.  If The Golf Wish, Inc. prevails in such Litigation it shall be entitled to collect from you all costs incurred by it in the Litigation including its reasonable attorneys’ fees and the cost of investigation, plus its court costs. If you are located outside the United States, please note the information you provide to us will be transferred to the United States. You hereby consent to this transfer.
