Note that this Policy applies only with respect to the information collected by IRIS PUBLICATIONS and not any information collected or obtained through other methods or sources.
Collection of Personally Identifiable Information
IRIS PUBLICATIONS collects Registrants’ personally-identifiable information (“PII”) that is volunteered by Registrants during the registration process or in response to specific information requests explicitly presented to Registrants. Examples of PII that may be requested and/or collected include: first and last name, title, address, email address, telephone number, gender, age, golf history, education, and household income. From time to time, IRIS PUBLICATIONS may also present opportunities for Registrants to voluntarily provide additional information about themselves.
Use and Sharing of PII
IRIS PUBLICATIONS reserves the right to use Registrant PII: (1) for the specific purpose for which such information was provided, for example on the Site, in order to be a subscriber to the IRIS PUBLICATIONS email newsletter; (2) as disclosed at the time such information is provided; and/or (3) as disclosed in this Policy. However, please note that IRIS PUBLICATIONS may change this Policy at any time (See “Changes to this Policy,” below), and that therefore IRIS PUBLICATIONS may in the future use Registrant PII for additional purposes not currently included in this Policy.
Registrant PII collected by us may be added to our databases and used for future marketing purposes. By using the Site, you agree that you may be contacted in any manner contemplated in this section even if your number is found on a do not call registry, in-house list or similar registry.
From time to time IRIS PUBLICATIONS contracts with third parties to conduct marketing promotions, sweepstakes and other promotions. The PII collected from such promotions may be used for any purpose disclosed in this policy or in the rules to the specific promotion.
IRIS PUBLICATIONS may share Registrant PII in aggregate, non-personal form, with select companies that wish to reach a particular Registrant target audience.
IRIS PUBLICATIONS may disclose Registrant PII in order to: (1) comply with applicable laws (including, without limitation, the CAN-SPAM Act); (2) respond to governmental inquiries; (3) comply with valid legal process; and (4) protect the rights or property of IRIS PUBLICATIONS, including without limitation, filing copyright applications with the Library of Congress, Copyright Office.
CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS: YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS
California Civil Code Section 1798.83, requires companies that collect PII from California residents and disclose such information to third parties (including affiliated entities) for marketing purposes to allow California residents to provide a mechanism by which a consumer may opt-out of having his/her information shared with third parties. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request to opt-out of having your PII shared with third parties, please submit your request in writing to:
P.O. Box 811045
Boca Raton, FL 33481-1045
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
IRIS PUBLICATIONS also collects certain non-personally identifiable information, including the non-personally identifiable information more fully described below.
Cookies. IRIS PUBLICATIONS may use “cookies” on the Site. Cookies are small pieces of information that IRIS PUBLICATIONS’s server places on an individual’s computer hard drive to enable the individual to more easily communicate and interact with the Site. For example, IRIS PUBLICATIONS may place a cookie on a Registrant’s computer when he/she initially clicks on a link in an email from IRIS PUBLICATIONS. The next time that Registrant opens an email from IRIS PUBLICATIONS and clicks on the link, IRIS PUBLICATIONS’s server will recognize the cookie (and the Registrant) and allow the Registrant to perform certain actions immediately without signing in.
While some Web browsers allow a Registrant to automatically reject all cookies or be notified when a cookie is about to be placed on the Registrant’s computer, disabling this feature may compromise the efficiency and added services that cookies provide.
IP Address. IRIS PUBLICATIONS collects your IP (Internet Protocol) address to help diagnose problems with its server, and to administer the Site and IRIS PUBLICATIONS email offers. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. Your IP address is also used to help identify you during a particular session and to gather broad demographic data.
Although the information collected through the foregoing methods does not itself contain any PII, IRIS PUBLICATIONS may analyze and match such information with other information that you provide (including PII) as well as information that IRIS PUBLICATIONS may obtain elsewhere, and IRIS PUBLICATIONS may share all or some of such information with partners, prospective partners, and other third parties.
IRIS PUBLICATIONS may also disclose non-personally identifiable information in order to (1) comply with applicable laws, (2) respond to governmental inquiries, (3) comply with valid legal process, or (4) protect the rights or property of IRIS PUBLICATIONS or its Registrants and users of the Site.
Opt-Out of IRIS PUBLICATIONS Media Promotions
During registration, Registrants will have the option to not receive promotional offers and updates, via emails, from IRIS PUBLICATIONS and our partners. In order to not receive such promotional offers and updates, Registrants must elect that option, where indicated.
If a Registrant chooses to receive promotional offers and updates, Registrant may, at any time thereafter, choose to discontinue receiving promotional emails from IRIS PUBLICATIONS or the Site by following the “unsubscribe” instructions in the applicable email. Notwithstanding the foregoing, IRIS PUBLICATIONS may continue to contact Registrants for the purpose of communicating information about their registration with IRIS PUBLICATIONS or similar information relating to IRIS PUBLICATIONS, the Site or their registration, as well as to facilitate, complete or confirm any transaction that Registrants enter into or in response to or fulfillment of Registrants’ inquiries or requests.
Access to Information If you want to review, correct or change your Registrant account information, please contact us at the address listed below.
Third Party Services
Certain information and services available to Registrants are provided by entities not affiliated with IRIS PUBLICATIONS. Although IRIS PUBLICATIONS advises all of its partners to support this Policy, IRIS PUBLICATIONS has no control over their information handling practices and is not responsible for any failure of such partners to adhere to this Policy.
Links from Email
IRIS PUBLICATIONS provides links to many of IRIS PUBLICATIONS’s advertiser and partner websites and other websites. If you link to any of these third party websites, this Policy will not apply to your use of, and activities on, those websites. We encourage you to read the legal notices posted on these sites, including their privacy policies. IRIS PUBLICATIONS shall have no responsibility or liability for your visitation to, and the data collection and use practices of, these websites.
Note Concerning Individuals 13 Years of Age And Younger
The Site, IRIS PUBLICATIONS emails and the content available in connection therewith, are neither intended for, nor directed to, children under the age of 13. You must be at least 13 years old to have our permission to use our websites and to provide your PII to IRIS PUBLICATIONS. If IRIS PUBLICATIONS learns that a person who is a Registrant is under the age of 13, IRIS PUBLICATIONS will promptly terminate that individual’s registration and delete the individual’s PII from IRIS PUBLICATIONS’s records. IRIS PUBLICATIONS will NOT knowingly distribute such information to third parties.
While IRIS PUBLICATIONS takes reasonable precautions to safeguard information transmitted between IRIS PUBLICATIONS and Registrants and/or users of the Site, IRIS PUBLICATIONS may be unable to prevent unauthorized access to such information by third parties or inadvertent disclosure of such information. Registrants and users acknowledge this risk when communicating with IRIS PUBLICATIONS.
Consent to Processing
By providing PII and other information to IRIS PUBLICATIONS, Registrants of the Site fully understand and unambiguously consent to the collection and processing of such information in, and the transfer of such information to, the United States and other countries or territories, in accordance with the terms of this Policy.
Transfer in Certain Circumstances
In its sole discretion, IRIS PUBLICATIONS may transfer, sell or assign information collected on or about Registrants of the Site, including without limitation, PII and other Registrant provided information, to one or more third parties, as a result of the sale, merger, consolidation, change in control, transfer of substantial assets, reorganization or liquidation of IRIS PUBLICATIONS.
Changes to This Policy
IRIS PUBLICATIONS may, from time to time, amend this Policy, in whole or part, in its sole discretion. Any changes to this Policy will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised policy. By continuing to use the Network Site following any changes, you will be deemed to have agreed to such changes.
