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.
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.
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.
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.
