INFORMATION WE COLLECT
The amount and type of information that Gals on the Green collects depends on the nature of interaction – i.e. newsletter subscriptions, waitlist requests, contact form submissions, and member accounts.
Non-personally identifiable information is data that is recorded about website users so that it no longer reflects or references an individually identifiable user. Like most website operators, Gals on the Green collects non-personally identifiable information that web browsers and servers typically make available such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifiable information is to better understand how visitors use our website.
When you create a Gals on the Green account you provide us with information that personally identifies you such as your name, email address, billing information, shipping information, payment data and other data that can be reasonably linked to information we associate with your account. The security of your personal information is important to us but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We don’t share information with advertisers that personally identifies you such as your name or email address; we only use the information we collect (such as your email address) to interact with you directly. Interactions may include newsletters, announcements, promotions, order confirmations and requests for updated account details. If you should contact us for any reason, we will keep a record of your request in order to help resolve any future issues you may experience.
SOCIAL NETWORKING SERVICES
Social media and social networking services such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Tic Tok (“Social Networking Services”) may provide you with the ability to access and/or login to your Gals on the Green account through their platform. Logging in directly or indirectly to our website through these Social Networking Service integrations may require you to authenticate, register for or log on to the website(s) of the respective service providers. Such integrations may provide access to certain data and personal information you may have shared with these Social Networking Services which may be used and stored in accordance with the service integrations. The manner in which these services use, store and disclose your information is governed solely by the policies of the Social Networking Services. Gals on the Green shall have no liability nor responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of any such third-party site or application that may be enabled through a Social Networking Service. Furthermore, Gals on the Green shall not be responsible for the accuracy, availability or reliability of any information, content, goods, data, opinions, advise or statements made available to us in connection with said Social Networking Services. Gals on the Green shall not be liable for any damage or loss in connection with the use or reliance on any such Social Networking Services. The integration of these services is provided as a convenience and use of such features does not imply any kind of endorsement or recommendation by Gals on the Green.
NOTICE REGARDING CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) affords California residents who submit personal information through this website with specific privacy rights.

Any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this notice.

Use of Personal Information
Gals on the Green processes your information for the purpose described in this policy which include “business purposes” under the CCPA. These purposes include:
To fulfill or meet the reason for which the information is provided. For example, to submit this information to our customers or their agents in the form of request for information.
To provide you with email alerts and other notices concerning our services.
To improve our services to you.
For testing, research, analysis, and product development.
As necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property or safety of us, our customers, or others.
To respond to law enforcement requests and as required by applicable law, court order, or governmental regulations.
As described to you when collecting your personal information or as otherwise set forth in the CCPA.
To evaluate or conduct a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by us is among the assets transferred.
We will not collect additional categories of personal information or use the personal information we collected for materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes without providing notice.
Sharing Personal Information
We do not sell your personal information; we only share your information as described in this policy. We may disclose your personal information to a third-party for a business purpose. When we disclose personal information for a business purpose, we enter a contract that describes the purpose and requires the recipient to both keep that personal information confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the contract.
Your Rights and Choices
The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
1. Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12-months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you:
The categories of personal information we collected about you.
Our business or commercial purpose for collecting that personal information.
The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.
The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).
2. Deletion Request Rights
You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:
A) Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested and/or take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you.
B) Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
C) Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
D) Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
E) Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 seq.).
F) Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
G) Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
H) Comply with a legal obligation.
I) Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
3. Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
A) Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
B) Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate and respond to it.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
4. Response Timing and Format
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45-days of receipt of said request. If we require more time (up to 90-days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to the registered email associated with the account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
Deny you use of our services.
Provide you a different level or quality of services.
