We refer to this as “interest-based advertising”.

We may also merge, co-mingle, or otherwise combine data about you, including personal information, in furtherance of the uses above.

How We Share and Disclose Data
There are times when the data we collect may be shared by The Pickleball Club. We share your data for the following purposes:
Providing the Services. We sometimes engage or partner with other companies to operate the Services or perform certain functions on our behalf – for example, maintaining and enhancing our fan databases, delivering messages and advertising, operating our websites and digital platforms. We may provide these companies with access to your data as needed for them to perform these functions in a manner consistent with this Policy. For more information about who these companies are, and how they use your data, please see the “Third Party Sites and Sections” section of this Policy below.
With Partners and Third Parties. We may share your information with certain business partners so that they can provide you with special offers, promotional and other materials that may be of interest to you. We share personal data with partners and third parties as part of marketing and advertising on and off of the Services. We may use third-parties to serve advertisements on the Services. These third parties may set their own cookies or similar web technologies to collect information about users’ online activities over time and across websites. For more information about how these third parties use your data and how you can manage these technologies, please see the “Cookies and Similar Technologies” section of this Policy below.
Among The Pickleball Club. We share personal data among the companies within The Pickleball Club to provide and improve the Services, to build predictive models to better understand our fans, to send promotional messages and advertisements about products and services that may be of interest to you, and for other purposes consistent with this Policy.
As part of a change in business structure. In the event of a sale, merger, acquisition, reorganization or similar event, or in contemplation of such an event (e.g., due diligence), your data may be among the transferred assets.
When necessary under certain circumstances. We may disclose your personal data when we believe that disclosure is necessary to:
Comply with applicable law or respond to valid legal process.
Protect the safety and security of our fans or our Services.
Prevent fraud, abuse or other unlawful or unauthorized activities.
Protect the rights or property of us or third parties, including enforcing the terms of our agreements.
We may also share your data for any other purpose as disclosed at the time of collection, or when we have otherwise obtained consent. Please note that this Policy is not intended to limit our ability to share or disclose aggregated, pseudonymized or anonymized data.
What Choices You Have
You have many choices about how we collect, use and share your data.
Communications choices. You can choose whether you wish to receive promotional messages from The Pickleball Club and which types of messages you wish to receive. If you receive promotional messages from us and would like to opt out, you may do so by following instructions within those messages.
Because the data used for interest-based advertising is also used for other necessary purposes (including providing the Services and for authentication and security purposes), opting out of interest-based advertising does not stop the data from being collected nor reduce the number of advertisements you will see. However, the data will not be used for interest-based advertising, which means the advertisements you do see may be less relevant to you.
Security of Data
The Pickleball Club takes security seriously. We take a number of steps to protect your data from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. These steps take into account the sensitivity of the data we collect and use, as well as the current state of technology. This includes, for example, storing your data on systems that have limited access and are maintained in controlled facilities. We also use, and require our vendors to use, industry standard security protocols when processing any payments for your use of the Services.
It is important to remember that no system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. We recommend that you help us keep your data safe by taking reasonable steps such as keeping your passwords private and not disclosing sensitive personal data in places that can be accessed publicly.
These third parties are only authorized to use your data as permitted under this Policy, or as disclosed to you at the time your data is collected. Please note, however, that these third parties may supplement data collected or received in connection with the Services with data they collect or receive through other websites, platforms and services, in accordance with the policies and disclosures posted on those websites, platforms and services. Within the past twelve months, we have disclosed the following categories of personal information: personal identifiers, commercial information, Internet/other electronic network activity information, geolocation data, characteristics of protected classifications, and inferences drawn from this information.
The Services may also contain links to, or integrations with, other websites, platforms or services that are not operated or controlled by The Pickleball Club (each a “Third Party Site,” and collectively, the “Third Party Sites”). Please note that this Policy does not apply to those Third Party Sites. For more information on how those Third Party Sites collect, use and share data, we suggest that you contact the operators of those Third Party Sites directly.
Children and Parents
The Services are not directed at children under the age of 16, and our policy is to not knowingly collect personal data from children under the age of 13, nor to sell personal data of individuals under the age of 16. We encourage parents and guardians to monitor their children’s online behavior, put parental control tools in place, and teach children not to provide their personal data through the Services without parental consent.
If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided personal data to us without parental consent, please contact us.
Personal data collected by The Pickleball Club may be stored and processed in the region in which it is collected, in the United States, and in any other region where we maintain major operations. We take steps to ensure that the data we collect under this Policy is stored and processed in accordance with this Policy regardless of where the data is located. By providing personal data in connection with the Services, you acknowledge and agree that such personal data may be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of The Pickleball Club and our authorized third party service providers located in the United States. Our practice when transferring personal data is to rely on standard data protection contract clauses or individual consent.
We retain personal data for as long as necessary to provide the Services and fulfill the transactions you have requested, or for other necessary purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes and enforcing our agreements. Because these factors vary for different types of personal data, actual retention periods may vary.
