MyScorecard Privacy Statement

MyScorecard has created this privacy statement to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy. This policy describes the ways we collect, store, use and protect your personal information. We may amend this policy at any time by posting a revised version on our website. If the revised version includes a substantial change, we will provide you with prior notice by posting notice of the change on our website. We last modified this Policy on August 6, 2014.

How we collect and use information about you

The MyScorecard registration form requires users to enter contact information (e.g. your name and email address), unique identifiers (e.g. your username), and certain demographic information (e.g. your gender). We use this information to contact you when necessary for changes in the membership agreement, administrative information about your account, announcements of new features, or to answer your questions.

We also collect certain profile data at our site. We use this information as part of the handicap calculation and to tailor the MyScorecard experience to you - for example, your personalized performance report will compare your answers against the top answers for golfers of a similar handicap.

How we contact you

Primarily we will use your email address to send you updates regarding your account and/or the service. We may contact you from time to time to offer new products, promotions or services from our suite of products and services, or products/vendors that we believe would be useful to our members.

You can opt out from any of these emails at any time by changing your preferences on your "account" page.

How we use cookies

When you access our website, we may place small data files called "cookies" on your computer.

We send a "session cookie" to your computer when you log in to your account. This type of cookie helps us to recognize you if you visit multiple pages on our site during the same session, so that we don't need to ask you for your password on each page. Once you log out or close your browser, this cookie expires and no longer has any effect.

We also use longer-lasting cookies for other purposes such as to automatically log you in to your Scorecard, so that you don't need to retype your username and password each time you log in to your account. We encode our cookies so that only we can interpret the information stored in them. You can disable the long-term cookie by unchecking the appropriate check-box when you register or log in, or by clicking the "Sign Out" button. Note, though, that MyScorecard does require the placement of a temporary cookie for you to enter scores. If your cookies are completely disabled you will be "kicked-out" to the login screen. To solve this problem you can designate Myscorecard as a site that is allowed to place a cookie on your computer. For help in doing this, please see our Help/Faq page or contact us.

How we share your information with other MyScorecard users

If you join a USGA Licensed club on MyScorecard, the USGA requirement of "peer review" will mean that your name, username, your handicap, and your scores may be be shared with MyScorecard members in your same club, and non-members (e.g. tournaments) who use our "handicap lookup" function to confirm your handicap. Further, USGA "group cohesion" requirements may require us to share your email address, phone number and city location with the club administrator to help organize club outings and tournaments or contact you regarding club business. Note that members other than the club administrator will not have access to your email/city information and will need to use the "email members" feature (where your personal information is hidden) to contact you.

If you decide to lead a USGA licensed club, then the information that was included in the USGA application will be shared with the USGA. As well, we may share your email/phone contact information with golf tournaments or other bodies that ask to verify the club status and/or handicap chairman.

If you decide to join a group on MyScorecard, your name, your username, profile picture, your handicap, and your scores may be shared with other MyScorecard members in your same club.

If you decide not to join any club, we do not share any of your information with other members. Note that the "handicap lookup" function is turned on for your account as a default, but you have the ability to turn off that function (in your account preferences) and keep all of your scores and personal information hidden.

How we share your information with third parties

We do not sell, rent, or disseminate your individual information to third parties.

We may aggregate our member information and share that be with co-branded partners and content providers - but only on an aggregate basis (e.g. average handicap for all golfers who they referred). Your personal identity and personal demographic information are never provided to third parties.

Use of your Paypal or Credit Card information As a general rule MyScorecard does not keep your credit card or other payment information. If you sign up for auto-renewal, we will instruct our payment processor to maintain an encrypted copy of your credit card information for auto-renewal purposes. You can disable auto-renewal at any time by going to your "account" page.

How you can change or access your personal information

You can review and edit your personal information at any time by logging in to your Scorecard and going to the "Account Admin" page.

How you can contact us about privacy questions

If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site, or your dealings with this Service, you can contact us at or writing to us at MyScorecard, Attn: Privacy Department, 1112 Montana Ave Suite 131, Santa Monica, CA 90403.
