Google Analytics

When someone visits www.dunesgolfcentre.co.uk we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

Free Wifi at Dunes Golf Centre

When you use Dunes Golf Wi-Fi we may collect data about:

  1. a) your device;
  2. b) the volume of data which you use;
  3. c) the websites and applications which you access; and
  4. d) your usage by access time, frequency and location.  

Mailing Lists

As part of the registration process for our e-newsletters and for services such as golf lessons, custom fit appointments and café bookings, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.

We use two third-party providers to help us make this as efficient as possible; Acuity Scheduling and  MailChimp to deliver our newsletters. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice and Acuity Scheduling privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing our data protection officer Peter Myers on petermyersgolf@outlook.com

Please be assured that we do not share your personal details with any other company without your consent

Third Parties
