The caller’s personal information will only be used by the Call Center for these specified purposes and will not be sold to any third party. Depending on your request to the Call Center, Callers’ personal information may be forwarded to third party suppliers with which we have contracted to provide you with certain products or services and which have comparable levels of privacy protection.   The Call Center will provide a caller with a copy of any retained documented personal information upon written request within a reasonable amount of time.  Personal information will be subject to the safeguards, access, retention and disposal policies as set out in the Trophy’s Privacy Policies and Practices under Call Centers and Brunswick’s Document Retention policies.

Callers who continue to place the call have provided implied consent.

4.                   The Call Center will comply with applicable law regarding the deletion of any tapes pertaining to a caller's personal information upon written request within a reasonable time, provided that such records are not required for legal or business reasons relating to the services being provided to the caller.  The written request shall specify the name of the caller and date of the call for retrieval purposes.  A summary of the call will still be recorded as set out above.

Site Sales, Ordering, Event Registration, and Related Processes: This section is meant as a general description of our practices.  It does not impose any duty upon us and it does not constitute a representation or warranty by us upon which you may rely.

Trophy Branded Merchandise Sites. In some instances, we will make available through the Site, an indivisible linked site of a third party vendor to sell certain products and services, including the Trophy-branded merchandise sold by a third party vendor.  Although it may appear that you are on our Site when you request such products and services, your information goes directly to the third party vendor for the purpose of fulfilling your order or request and is not received by Trophy. 

Credit Card Information for Trophy Merchandise.  If you send confidential personal credit card information as part of your ordering process to our vendor’s site, it is encrypted and securely relayed to a third party credit card processor, who subsequently sends an authorization code back to the Site.  Your confidential personal credit card information is not received, stored or otherwise retained by Trophy in any way. 

Trophy Merchandise Licensee.The Trophy branded merchandise sold on this Site is sold by Trophy's licensee, Threds. Please contact Kim McWilliams, Threds, 10529 Lexington Drive, Knoxville, TN 37932 (phone) 866-847-3371 or email usmarine@threds.com for information regarding products, delivery, and returns.

Order Forms. When and if you order brochures or services using a site or register for an event, Trophy or a third party vendor selling Trophy branded merchandise will request information from you using an order form. When we already have information about you (such as through a previous order, survey, or registration, whether received through a site or otherwise), we may use such information to facilitate the order or registration process. When using an order form, you must provide contact information (such as name and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number and expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your order. If Trophy or its third party vendor selling Trophy branded merchandise have trouble processing an order, this contact information could be used to contact you.

Shipping of Merchandise. Trophy, or its third party vendors selling Trophy-branded merchandise on linked sites to the Trophy site, may use outside shipping or other outsourcing providers to process and ship orders or perform other functions.  We use commercially reasonable diligence to restrict the purposes for which these outsourcing providers may use your personal information.  The requirements or requests that we impose on such outsourcing providers vary with the sensitivity of the information and can, but do not necessarily, include requirements that these outsourcing providers not retain, share, store, or use personal information for any secondary purposes, except for backup and recovery operations. Although we use good faith efforts to impose, and/or ensure compliance by our outsourcing providers, we cannot, and will not, be responsible to users for misuse of personal information by such outsourcing providers. 

Users Under Age 13

It is our policy that visitors to our Site who are under the age of 13 should not post or provide information on our Site without the consent of their parents.   The Child Online Privacy and Protection Act (COPPA) regulates online collection of information from persons under the age of 13.  It is our policy to refrain from knowingly collecting or maintaining personal information relating to any person under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, please do not supply any personal information through the site. If you are under the age of 18 and have already provided personal information through the site, please have your parent or guardian contact us immediately, so that we can remove such information from our files.

Cookies

Definition of Cookies.  Similar to other commercial Web sites, a technology called “cookies” may be used to provide you with tailored information.  A cookie is a small piece of data that a Web site can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your hard drive so we can recognize you when you return.  A cookie can contain information about you, your computer, your browser, your session, the websites you visit, and other information about you or others who use, or have used, the computer or browser you use to access the Internet. The goal is to save you time and provide a more meaningful visit. 

Link with Personal Information.  The cookies we use, if any, are not linked to any personal information while using a site unless you have given us permission to link personal information to one or more cookies. You give us that permission any time you register on a site, place an order through a site, or identify yourself or the computer you are using through a site.  When this permission is given, the cookies we use may link your personally identifiable information with the pages on our sites that you visit.

Notification & Rejection of Cookies.  You may be able to set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie.  Most or all browsers permit you to disable or reject cookies.  You can do this by setting the preferences in the browser. If you set the browser to reject cookies, you can use the sites, but you may not be able to use the full functionality of one or more of the sites or it may take additional time to utilize such functionality.  Use the “help” feature of your browser to obtain more information about refusing cookies. As of the time we wrote this privacy policy, there was information about how to disable cookies at the following websites.  We do not operate either of these websites and we make no representation or warranty about the information contained in the websites to which these links will take you.

Third-Party Use of Cookies.  One or more of the organizations with which we do business, or to which we provide links from a site, may also use cookies. We have no control over such organizations’ uses of cookies and users should review the privacy policies of such organizations to determine the uses such organizations make of cookies.

Log Files

We or our hosting provider may collect traffic information from visitors for statistical analysis and site improvement. When you access a site, we or our hosting provider may collect information about your visit in a log file on a server. Log file information may include, but is not limited to, internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks.  We or our hosting provider use this information to analyze trends, administer sites, track users’ movements in the aggregate, and gather demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses and other log file information are not linked to personal information. We do not try to track users or to identify users individually except as otherwise stated in this policy, but we or our hosting provider do review this information to understand overall trends and to determine what kinds of content are popular and useful to users.

Links to Other Web Sites

When you use a link to go from our Site to another Web site, our Privacy Policy is no longer in effect.  We do not operate those websites and we cannot control the information that the operators of such websites gather or what the operators of such websites do with the information.  We are not responsible for the privacy practices employed by Web sites linked to or from our Site nor for the information or content contained therein. 

Security

Where we collect nonpublic personal information from you, we or one or more of our service providers use industry-standard encryption and security standards to protect such information.  You can tell whether encryption is being used by noting the “locked” or other status indicator on the browser you are using.  If the browser you are using does not indicate that the session is secure (e.g. by displaying a lock, a key or another icon), you should assume that the connection is not secure and that third parties could intercept the information shared by you and us during that part of the session.

We also use commercially reasonable efforts to protect user information offline. All sensitive user information is maintained in our offices or at the facilities of our information technology provider(s). We cause access to servers and connections to be limited by key or other access.  Only employees or agents who need the information to perform specific functions are granted access to personal information. We use reasonable efforts to assure that our employees and agents are informed of our security and privacy practices.

Site and Service Updates

We may also send to you updates and service announcements about one or more of the sites. You may not un-subscribe or opt not to receive such announcements because such announcements contain important information about the services offered through the relevant site(s).

Access Your Information and Ask Questions

Users who no longer wish to receive newsletters or promotional materials or have their information provided to authorized dealers, affiliates, or business partners may opt to not receive such communications or have information shared by contacting us using the information below.  It may be impractical for us in some circumstances to prevent an authorized dealer, affiliate, or business partner to whom we have supplied your information from continuing to use the information and opting out may not stop them from contacting you.  You will need to contact them directly to opt out of any further use of your information.

We will use commercially reasonable efforts to timely make any changes you request.  Such compliance may involve batch processing and other processes that take 30 days or longer.  If you require an immediate change to your personal information and are unable to make such a change using the available site resources, please contact us.  If you opt not to receive such communications or allow us to share your information and then give your personal information to us again using a site or under other circumstances that permit us to use your information, we will regard your opt-out as rescinded. 

You can contact us with any inquiries or complaints or choose to access, revise or withdraw your consent at any time by contacting:
