Below you will find the updated Privacy Policy for Parnine, which applies to any information provided or collected through this Web site on or after 03/15/2011.

We understand that booking online involves significant trust on your part. We value your trust, and make it a high priority to ensure the security and confidentiality of the personal information you provide to us. Please read this policy to learn about our privacy practices. By visiting this website, you are accepting the practices described herein.

What information we collect from you

In General. We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. This includes information that can identify you ("personal information"), including your first and last name, telephone number, postal and email addresses and billing information (such as credit card number, cardholder name, and expiration date). We may also request information about your course / club preferences. You can choose not to provide information to us, but in general most of the information we request from you is required in order for you reserve a tee time, register as a member; complete a player profile; participate in a survey, contest, or sweepstakes; ask us a question; or initiate other transactions on our site.

Golf Companion Information. When you make a reservation for someone else through this website, we will request personal information and player preferences about that individual. You should obtain the consent of other individuals prior to providing us with their personal information and player preferences, as any access to view or change their information will be available only through your account.

Information from Other Sources. We also may periodically obtain both personal and non-personal information about you from affiliated entities, business partners and other independent third-party sources and add it to our account information. Examples of information we may receive include: updated delivery and address information, purchase history, and demographic information.

Automatic Information. We automatically collect some information about your computer when you visit this website. For example, we will collect your IP address, Web browser software (such as Firefox, Safari, or Internet Explorer), and referring website. We also may collect information about your online activity, such as bookings made. Our goals in collecting this automatic information include helping customize your user experience and inhibiting fraud. For more information, please see Cookies and other technologies.

How we use your information

We use sensitive billing information (such as cardholder name, credit card number, and expiration date) for the purpose of completing the tee time reservations you make on our site. We use other information about you for the following general purposes: to provide you with the products and services you request; to provide you with your tee time booking confirmation and updates; to manage your account, including processing bills and providing notifications; to communicate with you in general; to respond to your questions and comments; to measure interest in and improve our products, services, and website; to notify you about special offers and products or services that may be of interest to you; to otherwise customize your experience with this website; to reward you as part of any reward and recognition program you choose to join; to solicit information from you, including through surveys; to resolve disputes, collect fees, or troubleshoot problems; to prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities; to enforce our Terms of Use; and as otherwise described to you at the point of collection.

Email Communications. We want to make it easy for you to take advantage of golf-related opportunities on our website. One way we do this is by sending you email messages that contain information about your golf related interests. For example, if you search for a tee time in Las Vegas on our website but choose not to book a time, we may send you an email message telling you about our special deals for golf in Las Vegas. We believe these email messages will provide you with useful information about golf-related special offers available through our site. Please note that you will have the opportunity to choose not to receive these email messages in any such email we send.
