1. Personal information is important
Club Synergy is committed to safeguarding personal privacy. It recognises that individuals have a right to control how their personal information is collected and used. Providing personal information is an act of trust and it is taken seriously. Unless given consent to do otherwise, Club Synergy will only collect and use personal information as set out below.
2. Collecting personal information
Club Synergy will not collect or monitor any personal information about an individual without their consent. The only personal information collected is what has been provided voluntarily.
When a membership or product is purchased or through marketing activities (online, in a club, over the telephone etc.), personal information may be requested (such as name and address) in order to provide the requested service or product, provide upgrades or updated information, and advise of other Club Synergy products, which may be of interest. No one is obligated to provide personal information. However, failure to do so may result in Club Synergy being unable to provide services or products to you.
3. Use of tracking technologies
Club Synergy uses tracking technologies such as cookies or web beacons to make use of the website and services as convenient as possible. Cookies are pieces of information that a web site transfers to a computer’s hard disk for record keeping purposes. Web Beacon is a technical method that sends information related to the access to websites, when you browse websites, open or preview an HTML-formatted email. Most web browsers are set to accept tracking technologies such as cookies or web beacons. These tracking technologies do not themselves personally identify users, although they do identify a user’s browser. These tracking technologies allow Club Synergy to monitor the Club Synergy web site, and to record how many people are using the different parts of the site. It is possible to set the browser to refuse tracking technologies such as cookies or web beacons, however, this may limit the services provided by Club Synergy’s web site.
