SWEAT SOCIETY PRIVACY POLICY

Effective Date: DECEMBER 15, 2018

Sweat Society respects your concerns about privacy and values its relationship with you.

This Privacy Policy applies to information collected by Sweat Society, any affiliated or subsidiary companies (“Sweat Society,” “we” or “us”), offline or online, including, but not limited to all websites or apps that post a link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, “the Sites”).

This Privacy Policy explains the types of information we collect, the purposes of processing that information, the legal basis for processing that information, how we use that information, and with whom we share it. Our Privacy Policy describes the measures we take to protect the security of the information and the rights that you have as a data subject with regard to this information.  We also tell you how you can reach us to update your contact information, remove your name from our mailing lists, or get answers to questions you may have about our privacy practices. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully.  By continuing to interact with our sites, you are agreeing to the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

UPDATES TO OUR PRIVACY POLICY

This Privacy Policy may be updated periodically. We may modify this Privacy Policy at any time in our sole discretion. If we make material changes to this Privacy Policy that increase our rights to use personal information we have previously collected about you, we will obtain your consent either through an email to your registered email address or by prominent posting on our sites.  If we intend to further process your personal data for a purpose other than that for which the personal data were collected, prior to that further processing, Brunswick shall provide you with information about that other purpose and with additional information necessary to ensure fair and transparent processing.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We collect personal information including your name, address, telephone number, employer, email address, site password, demographic information, health information or financial information when you visit the Sites, create an account with us, or register a product or purchase with the Sites. Some of our sites also offer you the option to interact with, capture, or save information through the Sites such as photos or forum posts.

We also automatically collect information about the devices you use to interact with our Sites. The information we automatically collect includes device identifier, web browser, precise geolocation (with your knowledge and consent), browsing information collected through cookies and beacons on our Sites, and IP address. We also automatically collect information about how you use the Sites, such as what you have searched for and viewed with the Sites.  The information automatically collected will be associated with any personal information you have provided.

PURPOSES AND LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING INFORMATION

The information we collect is processed for the following purposes:

  • To serve the functions of the Sites;
  • To manage everyday business needs, such as administration and improvement of the Sites;
  • To analyze the Sites’ performance and functioning;
  • To prevent fraud; to enforce the Sites’ Terms of Use; to comply with all applicable laws and corporate reporting obligations; and to enforce Brunswick’s agreements;
  • To analyze how you use the Sites and to perform other market research;
  • To provide and communicate with you about our products and services;
  • To provide you with advertisements based on your interests;
  • To provide you with information about financial options for the purchase of our products;
  • To facilitate your interaction through our Sites with other consumers, including through social networking; and
  • To send you further notices, promotions, solicitations, brochures, or other marketing materials regarding our Sites, our products, and the services of our businesses, affiliates, business partners, or authorized dealers.

Brunswick processes this information where we have a legal basis to do so.  The legal basis that we will rely on will be one of the following:

  • You have consented to our processing your personal information;
  • The processing is necessary to perform a contract with you or to fulfill a request you have made;
  • The processing is necessary to comply with a legal obligation that applies to Sweat Society under EU or Member State law; or
  • The processing is necessary for purposes that are in Sweat
    Society’s legitimate interests as a multinational equipment retailer in order to, for example, protect our business and better understand our customers.

We may use your personal information to develop a personal profile about you.  We may use the personal information in your profile to respond to requests for financial options for purchasing products and services from us.

If you notify us that you do not wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, we will not send you marketing information.

Our Sites do not collect personal information about your online activities over time and across third party websites or online services.  Therefore, “do not track” signals transmitted from web browsers do not apply to our sites, and we do not alter any of our data collection and use practices upon receipt of such a signal.

Additional ways in which personal information is collected and processed are as follows:

Information You Provide

 

Precise Geolocation Information. In order to use some of the Sites, you may be required to allow Brunswick to collect your precise geolocation, with your knowledge and consent, to provide you with a product or service.  If you choose not to provide us with your precise geolocation information, these products and services will not function properly and we will not be able to provide them to you.

We will also use this precise geolocation information for analytics purposes, and will share your precise geolocation information with third parties, including but not limited to dealers and parties who provide targeted advertising and analytics services.

Information Request. If you request information about our products (e.g., order a brochure, a catalogue, or a magazine), we will ask you to provide personal information and details, such as your name, email address, telephone number, intended use of the relevant product, interests, etc. You may choose to provide additional comments and requests. We, or the authorized dealer in your area, will use your details to send you the information you request and may use this information to communicate with you in the future about our products or services.

Newsletters and Other Communications.  We may offer online or offline newsletters and other communications about our products, services and promotions. When you sign up to receive these communications, we ask you for personal information, such as your name, postal address and email address. We, or the authorized dealer in your area, will use the information to send you the communications you request and to communicate with you about our products and services.

Feedback, Surveys, or Contests.  We may offer you the opportunity to participate in online surveys, solicitations, or contests. Information we request includes contact information (such as e-mail address) and demographic information (such as number of family members and income ranges). Participation in surveys, solicitations, or contests is completely voluntary. Therefore, you have a choice as to whether to disclose any information. We, our business partners, or the authorized dealer in your area, will use the information provided to notify contest winners and award prizes, to monitor or improve the use of one or more websites or advertising, and to provide aggregated information for marketing analyses. Solicitations may take the form of mailings via U.S. mail; other couriers; or (if provided) email.

Online Sales.

Sweat Society Sites. Our branded merchandise is offered for sale by Sweat Society directly from the Sites.  If you transact with Sweat Society via our Sites, your information will be collected to process orders.  Your information will be collected either by Sweat Society or by an authorized third party payment processor.

Third Party Sites. Our branded merchandise also is offered for sale by authorized third party merchandise partners through websites they own and control, which may be linked to the Sites. If you transact with an authorized third-party merchandise partner, your purchase will be conducted on our authorized third-party merchandise partner’s website, subject to the third party’s privacy policies and terms of use. You should review the privacy policy and terms of use that apply to that third party’s website, which will apply to your transaction.

Owner’s Programs or Rewards Programs. Some of our Sites offer owner’s programs, reward programs, or coupons and request contact information and information on your product purchases, so that we can enroll you in these programs and communicate with you.

Product Registration.  From time to time, some of our Sites may offer online product registration. By registering your product online, you agree that we, our business partners, an authorized dealer/service provider, or third-party advertising agency may contact you related to the product registration for a variety of reasons including, but not limited to, providing product notifications, as required by law, for customer service and/or warranty assistance, to maintain Sweat Society’s databases and business processes, and/or to contact you for purposes otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy.

Referral Service.  We offer a referral service that allows you to inform your friends and other acquaintances about products and/or information contained on (or through) Sweat Society’s websites. If you elect to use such a referral service, the following will apply: email address(es) will be collected for the purpose of sending a one-time email for which you will be noted as the sender of such email.  Sweat Society will be a service provider facilitating such delivery.

Information We Automatically Collect

We collect certain information by automated means when you visit our Sites, such as how many users visited our Sites and the pages accessed. By collecting this information, we learn how to best tailor our Sites to our visitors. We collect this information through various means such as “cookies” and “web beacons.” In addition, we may collect IP addresses, as explained below.  For more information regarding our use of cookies, please refer to our separate Cookie Policy.

Cookies.  As described in our separate Cookie Policy, like many companies, we use “cookies” on some of our Sites. Cookies are pieces of code placed on your devices when you visit certain websites. We use cookies to tell us, for example, whether you have visited us before or if you are a new visitor and to help us identify features of the Sites in which you may have the greatest interest. Cookies may enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular website.

Most web browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable existing cookies. Please note, however, that without cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of all the features and functionality of the Sites.

Web Beacons.  As described in our separate Cookie Policy, certain pages on our website contain “web beacons” (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs). These web beacons allow third parties to obtain information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears; the URL of the page on which the beacon appears; the time the page containing the beacon was viewed; the type of browser used to view the page; and the information in cookies set by the third party.

IP Addresses.  An IP address is a unique identifier that certain electronic devices use to identify and communicate with each other on the Internet. When you visit our website and/or app, we view the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet. We then use this information to determine the general physical location of the device and understand the general locations of our website visitors. We also use this information to enhance our website and/or app.

BUSINESS STRUCTURE CHANGES

We reserve the right to disclose and transfer all information related to our Sites, including personal data:

  • to a subsequent owner, co-owner or operator of one or more of the Sites; or
  • in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, or restructuring, the sale of substantially all of our stock and/or assets, or other corporate change, including, without limitation, during the course of any due diligence process.

CHILDREN’S PRIVACY

Our Sites are general audience Sites not directed at children under the age of 13. If we obtain actual knowledge that any information we collect has been provided by a child under the age of 13, we will promptly delete that information.

LINKING SOCIAL NETWORK ACCOUNTS

Some of the Sites allow you sign into and associate your social network accounts including, but not limited to, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and Pinterest with Brunswick.

By using this functionality you give Brunswick permission to access all of the elements of your social network profile information that you have made available to be shared and to use it in accordance with the social network’s terms of use and this Privacy Policy. Please refer to the privacy settings in your social network account for information about what data is shared with us and other connected applications and to manage the data that is shared through your account, including information about your activities using our sites.
