PRIVACY POLICY

THE TOWN CLUB

Updated January 12, 2021

 
The Town Club takes the issue of safeguarding your privacy seriously. Our privacy policy describes what information we collect from Members as well as visitors at The Town Club website and mobile app, and the way in which The Town Club uses this information to better serve the needs of our Members and their guests.

What is Personal Information?
The term "Personal Information" refers to information about you as an individual, such as your name, address, age, gender, image, and account information.

Why Is Personal Information Collected?
1. To Provide a Superior Membership Experience to Our Members and Their Guests
Your Personal Information is collected to assist us in making your dining and event reservations and court bookings, to ensure your needs are met while at the Club. Our goal is to provide you with superior service, at all times. By keeping certain Personal Information on file, Members have the ability to book facilities, check statements, and book events on our website and mobile app.

2. To Keep Members Informed
We may use the Personal Information you provide to send you information on Club events and/or service interruptions. In order to do this, your information may be shared with a third party, for example, an email marketing software company. These companies are under contract with The Town Club and are contractually required to protect all Personal Information to which they have access. If you do not wish to receive information from The Town Club you may indicate your wishes by using the unsubscribe feature at the bottom of all Town Club email marketing communications.

3. For Marketing Research
Finally, we may wish to contact Members periodically to conduct surveys or focus groups to receive your views of our services and amenities. Such information may be collected by a third party under contract with us and they will be contractually required to protect your Personal Information as explained below. Occasionally we will combine information from a number of Members to better understand trends and Member expectations. When this occurs, all identifiers are removed and the aggregate information cannot be linked to any specific Member.

How is Personal Information Collected?
1. On Our Website and Mobile Application

A. Initially Upon Contact With Our Website
When you visit our website www.thetownclub.com you are initially given a "cookie", and your computer is assigned an ID number. A cookie is a commonly used piece of software that tracks an individual user's preferences and is capable of enhancing your visit to the site. Cookies allow us to provide a customized experience without the visitor having to remind us of his or her preferences each time she or he visits our site. If you log in as a registered user, our cookies may collect personal information to make registering for events and use of amenities seamless. Town Club cookies are used to enhance your experience on www.thetownclub.com. We do not share your activity on www.thetownclub.com with other third parties, nor do we collect information from other websites you may visit. By not blocking the use of cookies, you will be deemed to have consented to the use of such a cookie by The Town Club.

We also use cookies to collect and maintain aggregate web site data (such as the number of visitors to a particular page), which helps us see which areas are popular with our users and which are not. Among other things, this helps us improve and update the site, based on such data.

If you do not want to accept cookies, you can block them by adjusting the settings on your internet browser. Users should understand, however, that rejecting cookies will affect your ability to benefit from the conveniences afforded by the use of cookies, and you will not be able to use certain customization features associated with creating a user profile. Please note that because this is a setting on your browser, this adjustment may also block cookies for any website you visit.

B. While Browsing Our Website and Mobile App
While in the process of browsing our website, you also provide us with information that does not reveal your personal identity such as what type of information you are seeking. We use this aggregated, anonymous data mainly for editorial purposes, but we do not connect it to any Personal Information, such as your name or address.

While you explore our mobile App for information that interests you, you may provide Personal Information when you create a profile or sign in to access an existing profile.

2. When Making a Reservation

When you create an online profile you will be asked to provide specific Personal Information, including your name and member number. The transmittal of your Personal Information shall constitute your acknowledgment and agreement to the terms and conditions contained in this Privacy Policy.

Due to the personal nature of the information you provide when logging in through our website or mobile App, The Town Club employs encryption technology to keep your data secure.

If I have created a Member Profile, how is my Personal Information treated?
If you create a Member Profile, on our website or mobile app, you will be asked to furnish specific Personal Information. You will also be asked to provide a password for use each time you log in.

We understand that you may like to know what Personal Information we hold about you. We are happy to assist you with your request. To protect your Personal Information, however, we require that you prove your identity to us at the time your request is made. Should you request this information, not in person, the request must be made in writing via email or letter including a copy of government-issued identification and signature so we can check them with our files and satisfy ourselves as to your identity.

The above information is required to create an audit trail of how the request has been handled. Where a request is made, any correspondence or application may be kept and added to your Personal Information.
