Welcome to the Howard Park Tennis Club website. Howard Park Tennis Club is committed to protecting the privacy of any personal information you may provide when visiting our website. Part of that commitment is to explain what information may be collected and why, how it will be used and who may have access to it. Please read this Privacy Policy before using the site or submitting any personal information. By using the site, you consent to the data practices described in this Privacy Policy.

These practices may be changed, but any changes will be posted and changes will only apply to activities and information on a going forward, not retroactive basis. You are encouraged to review the Privacy Policy whenever you visit the site to make sure that you understand how any personal information you provide will be used.

Collection of Information

When you visit the Howard Park Tennis Club website, you do so anonymously; there is no need to tell us who you are. We collect personally identifiable information, like names, postal addresses, email addresses, etc., when voluntarily submitted by our visitors. This information you provide is used only to fulfill your specific request, unless you give us permission to use it in another manner, for example, to add you to one of our mailing lists. Only those who “need to know” will have access to the personal information provided.

Encryption technology protects personal information during transmission. A notice stating “you are in a secure site” will be posted when you are in an encrypted session. A security icon will also appear in either the lower left corner or, depending on your browser, the lower right corner of your browser window. Secure pages are not saved in temporary caches on a computer. Once you exit secure screens, those screens cannot be accessed again. If encryption is not available through a site, an alternative means of communication will be recommended.

The Howard Park Tennis Club web server does not collect or retain your email address in a database format, although some Internet Service Providers may automatically include your email address with your IP address (Internet Protocol).
