Information collected from you by others, such as third party websites that you access through links on the Website, are governed by those entities’ privacy policies.
AS DESCRIBED BELOW, BY ACCESSING THIS SITE YOU AGREE TO ALL THE TERMS IN THIS POLICY AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE A UNITED STATES RESIDENT. USERS ARE EXPRESSLY PROHIBITED FROM ACCESSING THIS SITE OR PROVIDING ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION IF THEY ARE LOCATED IN THE EUROPEAN UNION.
Information We Collect
The Site does not collect personally identifiable information when you browse the Site and request pages from our servers unless you voluntarily and knowingly provide it to us. This means that we will not know your name, your email address, or any other personally identifiable information just because you browse the Site unless you access the Site from a link in an email that we sent. If you access the Site from an email link from us, we will know who you are based on the information you previously supplied to us. In addition, when you request a page from our Site, our servers log the information provided in the HTTP request header including the IP number, the time of the request, the URL of your request and other information that is provided in the HTTP header. We collect the HTTP request header information in order to make our Site function correctly and provide you the functionality that you see on the Site. We also use this information to personalize content presented to you, better understand how visitors use our Site and how we can better tune it, its contents, and functionality to meet your needs.
When you use the Site, we may send one or more cookies – small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your computer. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Site. Persistent cookies can be removed. Please review your web browser “Help” file to learn the proper way to modify your cookie settings. Please note that if you delete, or choose not to accept, cookies from the Site, you may not be able to utilize the features of the Site to their fullest potential.
The Bay Club and its third-party service providers use pixel tags. Pixel tags are not visible to the user of the website and consist of a few lines of computer coding delivered with the Web page. Pixel tags are not used to collect any personally identifiable information about you apart from what you voluntarily provide us in your dealings with The Bay Club. The Bay Club and our email service provider use pixel tags to: (a) Track customer response to The Bay Club advertisements and website content; (b) Determine your ability to receive HTML-based email messages. Our email service provider includes a pixel tag, which they refer to as a “coded sensor” in all of the HTML-based messages sent on our behalf. The sensor activates when the email message is opened and flags the email address of the user as one that is capable of receiving HTML-based email messages. This capability helps our service provider to send the email in a format you can read. The sensor does not collect or use any other information. If you cannot receive HTML, you will not receive a functioning sensor; (c) Know how many users open an email and allow our service provider to compile aggregated statistics about an email campaign for us; and (d) Allow us to better target interactive advertising, enhance customer support and site usability, and provide offers and promotions that we believe would be of interest to you.
How We Use Information
We use all the information that you provide or that we collect and/or aggregate to understand and analyze the usage trends, interests, and preferences of our users, to improve the way the Site looks and works, and to create new features and functionality.
Various aspects of the Site, such as content on the Site, and email messages we send you in connection with your use of the Site may include relevant advertisements that may be selected based on your demographic information, interests, preferences, and usage patterns within the Site.
We may use “automatically collected” information and information from cookies and pixel tags to: (a) personalize our services, such as remembering your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the Site; (b) provide customized third party advertisements, content, and information; (c) monitor and analyze the our effectiveness and third party marketing activities; (d) monitor aggregate usage metrics such as total number of visitors, pages viewed, etc.; and (e) track your entries, submissions, and status in any promotions or other activities.
We may use your email address or other personally identifiable information to send promotional email related to the Site we think you may be interested in. You will have the ability to opt-out of receiving any such communications through links provided in the messages, sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting to opt-out.
To the extent we are able to do so, we may link your non-personally identifiable information with your personally identifiable information. We may also link information collected online with information we collect offline or that is collected online by third parties.
Disclosure of Information to Third Parties
From time to time, we may partner with other organizations or companies to provide co-sponsored or co-branded promotions, services, or events and may share your personal information with our co-sponsor(s) and partners. Additionally, we may provide your personal information to service providers or contractors to perform functions on its behalf, such as, but not limited to, companies or individuals hired to publish and operate the Site, communicate news, deliver our promotional materials via e-mail and direct mail, promote our social media presence and activities, to develop, enhance, market, or provide any of our products, to process credit card payments and to assist us with sending communications and performing other marketing and support functions. Also, we may use third-party social media platforms, including third-party social media websites, to communicate with you.
We work with third party service providers to provide website and application development, hosting, and maintenance as well as other services for us. To the extent it is necessary for these service providers to complete their contractual obligations to us, these third parties may have access to or process your personally identifiable information. Generally, these disclosures are made under terms comparable to this policy, and the recipients are limited to using the information the purpose for which it was provided.
In addition, if we sell all or part of our business or make a sale or transfer of assets or are otherwise involved in a merger or business transaction, we may transfer your personally identifiable information to a third party as part of that transaction. We may share non-personal aggregate, or summary, information regarding its customers with partners or other third parties, but we do not sell or share any information at the individual customer level.
Third Party Services
From time to time, you may receive periodic mailings or e-mails from The Bay Club with news or other information on events, products, services, discounts, special promotions, upcoming events or other offers from or on behalf of The Bay Club. If at any time you wish to stop receiving emails or mailings from The Bay Club please send us an email to email@example.com with the phrase “Privacy Opt-out: The Bay Club Mailings” in the subject line, or write to us at the address provided below, and we will remove you from The Bay Club’s mailing list. Alternatively, for e-mail communications, you may opt out of receiving such communications by following the unsubscribe instructions set forth at the bottom of most promotional e-mail messages from The Bay Club.
It is our intention to only send you email communications that will be useful to you and that you want to receive. We typically use third party email service providers to send emails. These service providers are contractually prohibited from using your email address for any purpose other than to send The Bay Club related email.
We do not knowingly solicit or collect personal information on the Site from children under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If we learn that, despite our measures, personally identifiable information of any person under the age of 13 has been collected on the Site without verifiable parental consent, then we will take the appropriate steps to delete this information. If you are a parent or guardian and discover that your child under the age of 13 has obtained an account on the Site, then you must alert us at firstname.lastname@example.org and request that we delete that child’s personal information from its systems and not to use such information for any purpose (except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required by law).
We employ reasonable physical, managerial, and technical measures designed to improve the integrity and security of the Site and the personal information you transmit to us and that we store on our systems. No such measure is foolproof, or immune to being cracked or compromised, whether by intentional hacking or human error. As such, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or that we store, and you do so at your own risk. We cannot and do not guarantee that your information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by or in connection with a breach or failure of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
Do Not Track
Your browser and other mechanisms may permit you to send do-not-track signals or other similar signals to express your preferences regarding online tracking. However, because there is not yet a defined response to do-not-track requests, our Site does not respond to your browser’s do-not-track request. As noted above, third parties, such as our advertising partners, may collect data that relates to you. We cannot control third parties’ responses to do-not-track signals or other such mechanisms. Third parties’ use of data relating to you and responsiveness to do-not-track signals is governed by their respective privacy policies.
