Whenever you give us Data, you are consenting to its collection and use as explained at the time of collection and in this Policy, including our use of ‘cookies’ (see section 7).
We operate an integrated communications programme which means we use your Data to communicate with you through several different channels, including direct mail and email (see sections 4 and 5).
Our aim is to keep you up-to-date with all the latest news from the JGA, however if you feel you no longer wish to receive direct mail or email communications from us, you are able to ‘opt out’ of them individually at any time (see section 6).
What personal data do we collect?
If you visit the JGA website, your Internet Protocol (‘IP’) address and other information relating to your visit will be tracked by a method called URL Rewriting where the link (URL) to any page on the site has a unique session ID appended to it (see section 7 for more details).
If you wish to interact with juniorgolfalliance.co.uk, you will need to become a registered user of the site. That process will involve you providing us with Data about you such as your name, address, email address and job title.
Similar and other Data such as your number of years’ coaching experience and previous job roles may be requested if, either online through juniorgolfalliance.co.uk or by email, or by post, in person or telephone, you order JGA products or services or apply for JGA membership.
After you first request information from the JGA, book to attend a JGA event, provide us with your business card at a JGA event, purchase any other JGA goods or services, or become a registered user of juniorgolfalliance.co.uk or a JGA member, we will collect other Data such as when you request information or publications, sign up for conferences or other JGA events or surveys.
When you order certain goods and services from the JGA you will be asked for further Data such as your credit card details and expiry date and to verify the delivery address where relevant.
Disclosure of information
The JGA’s use of your Data for any of the purposes disclosed in this Policy, or any other purposes disclosed in any separate communication, may involve the JGA sharing it with third party suppliers such as contractors, agents or professional advisers appointed by the JGA to assist the JGA in providing JGA services, facilities and products.
These may include entities located in countries outside the European Economic area (currently the European Union and Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway), who will be required to comply with our strict privacy requirements, and to demonstrate that they follow best practice guidelines for data protection.
In no other case, unless obliged to do so by law, will the JGA sell, rent, lease or otherwise share your Data with third parties, unless you have provided your specific, positive and unambiguous consent.
What we use your data for?
Data about you provided to the JGA will be used for the purposes described at the time of collection.
It may also be used for the other purposes described in this Policy. For instance, Data will be used by the JGA to record juniorgolfalliance.co.uk usage patterns and your use of the JGA’s other services, goods and facilities, thus helping us to administer these effectively and provide the highest possible level of service.
It also helps us better understand your needs and interests.
If you are a JGA member your Data may be used to send you, by post or by email, any JGA publications made available to JGA members including regular monthly newsletters and updates on regional events and activities.
It will also be used for JGA administrative purposes such as membership renewal reminders. If you are not a JGA member your Data may be used to send you regular updates about the latest information and services available from the JGA, by post or email.
We will always require you to supply an email address when you complete a transaction on juniorgolfalliance.co.uk for email confirmation and administration purposes.

Photo and Video Disclaimer
Images may be captured during events organised and/or hosted by the Junior Golf Alliance (JGA) using film photography, digital photography, video or other mediums.
The JGA reserves the right to use the images captured in any brochures, booklets, videos, websites or other media and publicity material produced by the JGA.
The JGA informs all persons taking part in a JGA event that they may be photographed, filmed, videoed or otherwise captured in image form.
Where possible and practical to do so, the JGA will seek written consent to image capture. However, where this is not possible for practical reasons, unless express objections are received, individuals attending an event are deemed to have given their consent by attending or remaining at the event.
Data may also be used to send JGA members and non-members promotional communications as described in the ’Promotional Communications’ – section 6 below.
Any queries or complaints should be raised with the JGA in the first instance.
Unless you have previously opted out of receiving such communications (see ‘Opting out’ – section 6), your Data will be used by the JGA for marketing, advertising and promotions (’Promotions’).
These Promotions may advertise JGA events and other JGA services, goods and facilities, some of which are offered to you in partnership with specially selected partners of the JGA.
Because of this, Data may be shared with them solely for the purpose of informing you of such JGA events, services, goods and facilities.
Other Promotional communications may also invite you to participate in surveys or prize events sponsored by third parties.
These third parties will have been specially selected by the JGA and third party Promotions will not result in your Data coming into the third party’s possession unless you give separate consent to this occurring, for example if you participate in a survey or prize draw or subsequently place an order with the third party. In that event please check notices supplied by that third party for information as to how they will make use of your Data.
Promotional communications may be made by post or email.
You may at any time opt out of any future JGA communication, digital or non-digital, Promotional or non-Promotional.
If you wish to opt out of receiving postal communications please contact the JGA Membership Department.
If you wish to opt out of email communications please use the ‘Unsubscribe’ link provided and follow the instructions.
A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent from our web server to your browser when you visit juniorgolfalliance.co.uk. It is stored on your hard drive.
There are several types of cookie that are used to keep track of information needed by a site user as they travel from page to page within a website.
We use a method called URLRewriting where the link (URL) to any page on the site has a unique session identifier (session ID) appended to it.
This allows juniorgolfalliance.co.uk to track a user’s behaviour during each visit to the website (session) without the need to write a temporary cookie to their PC’s hard drive.
Other types of cookie can be used to track internet activity after the user has left a website.
These are normally facilitated by organisations external to the website being visited and are generally known as ‘third party’ cookies. These usually have a long lifetime with several months being quite common.
They are “harvested” and “refreshed” whenever the user visits a page where the same or a similar cookie is being used.
We currently have a third party cookie written from www.juniorgolfalliance.co.uk as follows:
We currently use Google Analytics to measure and analyse visitor information related to our web site. For that purpose, your IP address, Internet traffic data and data on your browser type and PC are collected. We will not use any of this data to identify you personally, it is used only to monitor and improve iod.com.
Internet browsers normally accept cookies by default, but it is possible to set a browser to reject cookies. If this is done it is important not to exclude the benign and useful cookies.
Choose an option that rejects all third party and long-lived cookies.
We may supplement your personal data with other Data about you we have received from third parties, provided that they have obtained and shared that Data with us in a manner that is compliant with all relevant laws and codes. For instance a third party may be used to verify your payment details.
We may also combine Data about your purchasing habits with similar Data about you to create a personalised user profile. We can then use this to send you communications which are more likely to be of interest to you.
Maintaining the information we hold about you
The JGA aims to keep the Data it holds about you accurate and up to date. If at any time you want to verify, update or amend any Data we hold about you or if you become aware of possible errors or inaccuracies in that Data, please contact the JGA Membership department.
If you wish to opt out of further use of your Data for any purpose, please refer to Section 6 on ‘Opting Out.’

Offline, it will be clear from the marketing communication if you are being asked to contact the Seller direct to place an order.
