River Bend Club Privacy Policy


River Bend Club respects the privacy of those who use our website (located at https://www.rbgcc.org,) and other media forms, media channels, mobile website or mobile application related to the website. Our Privacy Policy is designed to inform users about the types of information that the Club may gather about or collect from you in connection with your use of the website. It also explains how the Club uses and discloses that information. By using or accessing the website, you are accepting the practices set forth in this Privacy Policy.

Collection, Use and Security of Information
“Personally Identifiable Information” is information that, without more, can be directly associated with a specific person. The Club may collect a range of Personally Identifiable Information from and about website users. Much of the Personally Identifiable Information collected by the Club about users is information provided by users themselves when (1) registering for our service, (2) logging in with social network credentials, (3) participating in polls, contests, surveys or other features of our service, or responding to offers or advertisements, (4) communicating with us, (5) creating a public profile or (6) signing up to receive newsletters. That information may include each user’s name, address, email address and telephone number, and, if you transact business with us, financial information such as your payment method (e.g., valid credit card number, type, expiration date or other financial information, bank account information, etc.). We also may request information about your interests and activities, your gender, age, date of birth, username, hometown and other demographic or relevant information, and that of your immediate family. Users of the website are under no obligation to provide the Club with Personally Identifiable Information of any kind, however refusal to do so may preclude the use of certain website features.

The Club uses the Personally Identifiable Information in the file we maintain about you and other information we obtain from your current and past activities on the website (1) to deliver the products and services that you have requested; (2) to manage your account and provide you with customer support; (3) to communicate with you by email, postal mail, telephone and/or mobile devices about products or services that may be of interest to you either from us, our affiliate companies or other third parties; (4) to develop and display content and advertising tailored to your interests on the website and other sites; (5) to resolve disputes and troubleshoot problems; (6) to measure consumer interest in our services; (7) to inform you of updates; (8) to customize your experience; and (9) to detect and protect us against error, fraud at the time of collection. We may use financial information or payment method to process payment for any purchases made on the website, enroll you in the discount, rebate, and other programs in which you elect to participate, to protect against or identify possible fraudulent transactions and otherwise as needed to manage our business.

We may share your Personally Identifiable Information with our authorized service providers that perform certain services on our behalf. We may also share your name, contact information and credit card information with our authorized service providers who process credit card payments.  These service providers may have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but are not permitted to share or use such information for any other purpose. The Club contractually prohibits its contractors, affiliates, vendors and suppliers from disclosing Personally Identifiable Information received from the Club, other than in accordance with this Privacy Policy. These third parties include a variety of other third-party applications accessible through the website.

We may disclose Personally Identifiable Information to investigate, prevent or take other action regarding suspected fraud or other wrongdoing; to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of the Club, our users, our employees or others; to enforce our terms of use or other agreements or policies, in response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order or a request for cooperation from a law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law.

We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services that we think you may find valuable. We may also send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. Generally, you may opt out of such emails at the time of registration or through your account settings, though we reserve the right to send you notices about your account, such as service announcements and administrative messages, even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications
 
We take the security of your Personally Identifiable Information seriously and use reasonable electronic, personnel and physical measures to protect it from loss, theft, alteration or misuse. However, we cannot guarantee that only authorized persons will view your information. We are not responsible for third-party circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Personally Identifiable Information by keeping your password confidential. If you lose control of your account, you should notify us immediately.
 
Mobile Devices; Social Media
If you use a mobile device to access the website or download any of our applications, we may collect device information (such as your mobile device ID, model and manufacturer), operating system, version information and IP address. Unless we have received your prior consent, we do not access or track any location-based information from your mobile device at any time while downloading or using our mobile application or our services. We send you push notifications if you choose to receive them, letting you know when someone has sent you a message or for other service-related matters. If you wish to opt-out from receiving these types of communications, you may turn them off in your device’s settings. We use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our mobile software on your phone. This software may record information, such as how often you use the application, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, performance data and where the application was downloaded from. We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any Personally Identifiable Information you submit within the mobile application.
 
Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems include a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, the website currently does not respond to DNT browser signals or mechanisms.
 
We may use hyperlinks which will redirect you to a social network if you click on the respective link. However, when you click on a social plug-in, such as Facebook’s “Like” button, Twitter’s “tweet” button or the Google+, that particular social network’s plugin will be activated and your browser will directly connect to that provider’s servers. If you do not use these buttons, none of your data will be sent to the respective social network’s plugin provider.
 
Changing Personally Identifiable Information; Account Termination

You may at any time review or change your Personally Identifiable Information by going to your account settings (if applicable) or contacting us using the contact information below. Upon your request, we will deactivate or delete your account and contact information from our active databases. Such information will be deactivated or deleted as soon as practicable based on your account activity and accordance with our deactivation policy and applicable law. To make this request, either go to your account settings (if applicable) or contact us as provided below. We will retain in our files some Personally Identifiable Information to prevent fraud, to troubleshoot problems, to assist with any investigations, to enforce our terms of use and to comply with legal requirements as is permitted by law. Therefore, you should not expect that all your Personally Identifiable Information will be completely removed from our databases in response to your requests. Additionally, we keep a history of changed information to investigate suspected fraud with your account.'
