For example, we and third parties we work with may collect information from the computer, tablet, phone, or other device: that you install our mobile application on; that you use to access our Website; or that you use to open an email or click on an advertisement from us. This collection includes automatically collected information, and generally does not include personal information unless you provide it through our mobile application or Website or you choose to share it with us.
Methods we use include:
- Cookies (which may be session-based or persistent) – see more about cookies and other tracking tools below;
- Website and mobile application log files (which are created automatically in connection with access to and use of our Website and mobile application);
- Web beacons or tags;

During normal usage, you can visit our Website without communicating any personal information beyond that which is automatically collected (e.g. cookies, etc.). However, to make use of certain features on our Website, such as booking sports and other activities, and reviewing personal account information, you may need to log in online with a username and password. Passwords should contain a unique combination of letters, numbers and symbols and members should not disclose their login information to third parties. The Club will not be responsible for disclosure of personal information by a member, or for a member’s failure to safeguard his or her personal information. You should be aware that when you share personal information, including photographs of yourself or others in public areas of our Website, including social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, this information might be seen and used by others. The Club bears no responsibility for the disclosure of such information by members at their own instance. We urge you to exercise good judgment when choosing to share personal information in these forums. Please note that basic member contact information is made available on the Website Member Roster. Information typically includes Member name, telephone numbers and email address (if available). This is only available to Members who log into the Website.
Cookies and Other Tracking Tools:
When you visit our Club Websites or interact with one of our electronic promotion or communications (including emails), we may collect and store information about your visit or interaction with that promotion or communication on a de-identified, aggregate basis using “cookie” technology and other tracking tools.
If you are concerned about cookies, most web browsers allow you to modify your browser’s settings so that it does not accept cookies or notifies you when you receive a cookie. If you do not know how to modify your browser settings please consult your browser documentation. You may visit the Club Website with your cookies turned off. However, some functionality of our site may be impaired and you may not be able to access some of the areas of our site, which require cookies for customization and personalization.

For example, web beacons may be used to tell us whether a web page has been viewed or whether e-mail messages have been opened and acted upon by collecting information such as when an email message is opened, how many times an email message is forwarded, the type of software, device, operating system and browser used to deliver the email and whether a link contained within the email message has been “clicked”.

Each member consents to the use of such photography provided. However, if for any reason the individual would NOT like to have any photos of themselves published, then he or she must advise the Club in advance in writing of such request, and the event, or timeframe for which such request is being made. Notwithstanding anything contained in this policy, no advertisement or promotional piece designed specifically for public viewing whether on the Club’s public Website, social media or in print, will contain an identifiable photograph of a Club member, without the advance written permission of such member.
Except as required or permitted by applicable law, we will respect your wishes relating to the use of your personal information and we will ensure that your file reflects the limitations that you have requested. Unless they are obvious, we will advise you of the consequences of withdrawing your consent. For example, if you withdraw your consent, the Club may not be able to provide you or continue to provide you with the services or information about facilities, services, programs or related promotions that may be of value to you.
