Your California Privacy Rights.

Residents of the State of California, under the California Civil Code, have the right to request from companies conducting business in California, a list of all third parties to which we have disclosed personal information during the preceding year for direct marketing purposes. Alternatively, the law provides that if we have a privacy policy that gives either an “opt-out” or “opt-in” choice for use of your personal information by third parties (such as advertisers or affiliated companies) for marketing purposes, we may instead provide you with information on how to exercise your disclosure choice options.


We qualify for the alternative option: we have a comprehensive Privacy Policy and provide you with details on how you may either decline to permit (“opt-out) or consent to (“opt-in”) the use of your personal information by third parties for direct marketing purposes. Therefore, we are not required to maintain or disclose a list of the third parties that received your personal information for marketing purposes during the preceding year.


If you are a California resident and request information about how to exercise your third party disclosure choices, you must send a request to the following address with a preference on how our response to your request should be sent (email or postal mail). Send an email to the Privacy Administrator at support@golfzing.com or you may contact us via postal mail at:

AGC - Privacy Administrator

6080 Center Dr. Suite 500
Los Angeles, CA 90045

Attn: Your California Privacy Rights

All requests sent via postal mail must be labeled “Your California Privacy Rights” on the envelope or post card and clearly stated on the actual request. For all requests, please include your name, street address, city, state, and zip code. (Your street address is optional if you wish to receive a response to your request via email. Please include your zip code for our own recordkeeping.) We will not accept requests via the telephone or by facsimile. We are not responsible for notices that are not labeled or sent properly, notices that are illegible or do not have complete information.
