This is the privacy notice of Full Swing Golf, Inc. In this document, “we”, “our”, or “us” refer to Full
Swing Golf, Inc.
We are a California corporation registered in the United States of America. Our registered office
is located at 1905 Aston Avenue, Carlsbad, California 92008.
This privacy notice pertains to our collection, use, disclosure, and other processing activities with
regards to your personal information (as defined below) when you navigate or use our portfolio of
websites, products, and/or services located at fullswinggolf.com and related sub-domains.
1. This is a notice to inform you of our policy about all personal information that we record,
receive, and collect about you. It sets out the conditions under which we may process any
personal information that we collect from you, or that you or other third parties provide to
us. It covers information that, alone or in combination with other information, could be used
to identify you (“personal information”). In the context of the law and this notice, “process”
means collect, store, transfer, use or otherwise act on information.
2. We take seriously the protection of your privacy. We understand that all visitors to our
website are entitled to know that their personal information will not be used for any purpose
unintended by them, and will not unlawfully fall into the hands of a third party.
3. We aim to preserve the confidentiality of all personal information you provide to us, and
hope that you reciprocate.
4. Our policy complies with US law accordingly implemented, including that required by the
EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), as well as Canadian privacy laws.
However, depending on your geographic location, one or more of these laws may not
apply to our treatment of your personal information and, as a result, certain sections of
this Policy may not apply to it.
5. Citizens in the European Union have legal rights regarding how their personal information
is collected, used, and stored by website owners. The law requires us to tell EU citizens
about our rights and obligations to them in regards to the processing and control of their
personal data. We do this now, by requesting that EU citizens read the information
provided at www.knowyourprivacyrights.org.
6. Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any
information collected through our website, unless we obtain your specific consent, or are
legally permitted or required to do so.
THE BASES ON WHICH WE PROCESS INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
GDPR, where applicable, requires us to determine under which of six defined bases we process
different categories of your personal information and to notify you of the basis for each category.
If a basis on which we process your personal information is no longer relevant, then we shall
immediately stop processing your data.
If the basis changes, then, if required by law, we shall notify you of the change and of any new
basis under which we have determined that we can continue to process your information.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, under Canadian privacy laws (as applicable), your consent
(implied or express, depending on the circumstances) is the only legal basis on which we can rely
to process your personal information, subject to certain specific exceptions provided under such
laws. One of those exceptions is found in cases where we are legally required to process your
personal information in a certain way. Consequently, the following Sections 1 and 3 do not apply
to you if you are located in Canada.
1. Information we process because we have a contractual obligation with you
This section is not applicable to you if you are located in Canada.
When you create an account on our website, buy a product or service from us, or otherwise agree
to our terms and conditions, a contract is formed between you and us.
In order to carry out our obligations under that contract, we must process the information you give
us. Some of this information may be personal information.
We may use it in order to:
1.1. verify your identity for security purposes
1.2. sell products to you
1.3. provide you with our services
1.4. provide you with suggestions and advice on products, services and how to obtain the most
from using our website
We process this information on the basis that there is a contract between us, or that you have
requested we use the information before we enter into a legal contract.
Additionally, we may aggregate this information in a general way and use it to provide class
information, for example, to monitor our performance with respect to a particular service we
provide. If we use it for this purpose, you as an individual will not be personally identifiable.
We shall continue to process this information until the contract between us ends or is terminated
by either party under the terms of the contract.
2. Information we process with your consent
Through certain actions when otherwise there is no contractual relationship between us, such as
when you browse our website or ask us to provide you more information about our business,
including our products and services, you provide your consent to us to process information that
may be personal information.
Wherever required under applicable law, we aim to obtain your explicit consent to process this
Sometimes, when permitted under applicable law, you might give your consent implicitly, such as
when you send us a message by e-mail to which you would reasonably expect us to reply.
Except where you have consented to our use of your information for a specific purpose, we do
not use your information in any way that would identify you personally. We may aggregate it in a
general way and use it to provide class information, for example, to monitor the performance of a
page on our website.
If you have given us explicit consent to do so, we may from time to time pass your name and
contact information to selected associates whom we consider may provide services or products
you would find beneficial, including but not limited to our network of independent service providers
We continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or it can
be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists.
You may withdraw your consent at any time by instructing us [email protected] However, if you
do so, you may not be able to use our website or our services further.
3. Information we process for the purposes of legitimate interests
This section is not applicable to you if you are located in Canada.
We may process information on the basis there is a legitimate interest, either to you or to us, of
Where we process your information on this basis, we do after having considered:
• whether the same objective could be achieved through other means
• whether processing (or not processing) might cause you harm
• whether you would expect us to process your data, and whether you would, in the round,
consider it reasonable to do so
For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of:
• record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of our official documents and
• responding to unsolicited communication from you to which we believe you would expect
a response protecting and asserting the legal rights of any party
• insuring against or obtaining professional advice that is required to manage risk related to
• protecting your interests where we believe we have a duty to do so
4. Information we process because we have a legal obligation
We are subject to the law like everyone else. Sometimes, we must process your information to
comply with a statutory obligation.
For example, we may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if
they have the proper legal basis or authorization such as a search warrant or court order.
This may include your personal information.
PERSONAL INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT AND HOW WE MAY USE IT
5. Information provided on the understanding that it will be shared with a third party

downloaded, or used by other people.

have no control over what any individual, third party may do with it. We accept no responsibility
for their actions at any time.

discretion, we may agree to your request to delete personal information that you have posted.
If applicable, you can make a request by contacting us at [email protected]
6. Complaints regarding content on our website
We attempt to moderate user-generated content, but we are not always able to do so as soon as
that content is published.
If you complain about any of the content on our website, we shall investigate your complaint.

Free speech is a fundamental right, so we must make a judgment as to whose right will be
obstructed: yours, or that of the person who posted the content that offends you.
If we think your complaint is vexatious or without any basis, we shall not correspond with you
7. Information relating to your method of payment
Payment information is never taken by us, accessed by us, or transferred to us either through our
website or otherwise. Our employees and contractors never have access to it.
At the point of payment, you are transferred to a secure page hosted by Stripe Payment Solution,
or some other reputable payment service provider. The payment form may be branded to look
like a page on our website, but it is not controlled or hosted by us.
8. Information about your direct debit
When you agree to set up a direct debit arrangement, the information you give to us is passed to
our own bank for processing according to our instructions. We do not keep a copy.
We are registered under the direct debit guarantee scheme. This provides for the customer’s bank
to refund disputed payments without question, pending further investigation. Direct debits can
only be set up for payments to beneficiaries that are approved originators of direct debits. In order
to be approved, these beneficiaries are subjected to careful vetting procedures. Once approved,
they are required to give indemnity guarantees through their banks.
9. Job application and employment
If you send us information in connection with a job application (such as your resume and cover
letter), we may keep it for up to 3 years in case we decide to contact you at a later date. We may
collect your application information indirectly through a third party service provider, and you
hereby consent to our collection of the personal information it contains through such provider.
10. Sending a message to our support team
When you contact us, whether by telephone, through our website or by e-mail, we collect the data
you have given to us in order to reply with the information you need, such as your name, address,
email address, phone number, and any personal information that your communications may
We record your request and our reply in order to increase the efficiency of our customer service
program. We keep personally identifiable information associated with your messages, such as
your name, email address, and phone number so as to be able to track our communications with
you to provide a high-quality service.
When we receive a complaint, we record all the information you have given to us.
We use that information to resolve your complaint.
If your complaint reasonably requires us to contact some other person, we may decide to give to
that other person some of the information contained in your complaint. We do this as infrequently
as possible, but it is a matter for our sole discretion as to whether we do give information, and if
we do, what that information is.
We may also compile statistics showing information obtained from this source to assess the level
of service we provide, but not in a way that could identify you or any other person.
12. Affiliate and business partner information
This is information given to us by you in your capacity as an affiliate of us or as a business partner,
which includes your name, contact information, including telephone number, business address,
and email address, and specifics of a given sale made to your business.
It allows us to recognize visitors that you have referred to us, and to credit to you commission due
for such referrals. It also includes information that allows us to transfer commission to you.
The information is not used for any other purpose.
We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of the information and of the terms of our relationship.
We expect any affiliate or partner to agree to reciprocate this policy.
