SteepleJAC collects customer information directly from our customer. SteepleJAC can collect participant's personal information from other persons with consent from the consumer or as authorized by law.
SteepleJAC informs our clients, before or at the time of collecting personal information, of the purposes for which we are collecting the information. However, SteepleJAC does not provide this notification when a client volunteers information for an obvious purpose regarding the System (for example, inputting scores onto a scorecard for personal scoring, scorecard or tournament leaderboards, or scorecard/tournament calculations, etc).
SteepleJAC asks for consent to collect, use or disclose client personal information, except in specific circumstances where collection, use, or disclosure without consent is authorized or required by law. Participants agree to consent in cases where the participant volunteers information for an obvious purpose. When updating personal information, the participant may be required to confirm and authorize consent however the customer agrees that in editing, updating, or changing personal information, the participant’s previous consent remains valid and sufficient.
SteepleJAC asks for the participants' express consent for some purposes and may not be able to provide certain services if you are unwilling to provide consent to the collection, use, or disclosure of certain personal information. Where express consent is needed, SteepleJAC will normally ask customers to provide consent online at the time of registration, by checking a box on a form and/or electronically by clicking a button.
A client may withdraw consent to the use and disclosure of personal information at any time, unless the personal information is necessary for us to fulfil our legal obligations.. SteepleJAC will respect your decision, but the customer understands that we may not be able to provide the customer with certain products and services if we do not have the necessary personal information. The consumer is also informed that some information which has been collected and posted can not be removed from the system, (eg scorecard results, leaderboard standings, tournament results, etc.
SteepleJAC may collect, use or disclose client personal information without consent only as authorized by law. For example, we may not request consent when the collection, use or disclosure is reasonable for an investigation or legal proceeding, to collect a debt owed to our organization, in an emergency that threatens life, health or safety, or when the personal information is from a public directory.
Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
SteepleJAC uses and discloses client personal information only for the purposes for which the information was collected, except as authorized by law. For example, we may use client contact information to deliver services, calculate and post scores, verify dates and location of play, etc. The law also allows us to use contact information for the purpose of collecting a debt owed to our organization, should that be necessary.
If SteepleJAC wishes to use or disclose your personal information for any new business purpose, your consent will be required.

If the participant is aware of an error in our information about the said participant, it is required that we are informed in a timely manner and corrections on request will be made wherever possible. SteepleJAC reserves the right to inform the participant of posted data which may appear incorrect and if not adequately corrected or failure to contact occurs a profile, membership, or tournament registration will be deleted.
