We are the data controller of your personal data.
Collecting Your Data
“Personal data" is information that identifies you as an individual, such as name, postal address, telephone number, photograph and email address. All personal data that you provide to us must be true, complete and accurate, and you must notify us of any changes to such personal data. You must not register under someone else’s name. You must keep your log-in details confidential. You are responsible for all activity under your my-pro account.
In order to register as a PGA Club Professional, you must provide us with your name, email address, golf club attachment, county/dependency/state/province and country of location, which PGA you are a member of and your PGA membership number. You can then add further personal data to your profile on the Site, including a profile picture, your date of birth, place of birth, when you became a professional, your position within your business, and a contact telephone number together with a brief biography, vision and family details; and details about the golf clubs you use, your playing record and any sponsors you have. You may also share information about any staff that work within your business. You must ensure that you obtain the consent of your staff to upload their personal data, including to upload a profile picture, details of the full name, date of birth, place of birth, when they turned professional, shop position, brief introduction copy, the golf clubs they use and playing record.
In order to register as a player, you must provide us with your name, email address, county/dependency/state/province and country of location, gender, whether you are a member of the club where the PGA Professional is located, whether you are left or right handed and details about your golf handicap. On registration, you must add details of the golf clubs that you use, assess your performance with each club and set a performance objective. You may also add scorecards to update your on-course analysis data.
As a PGA Club Professional, you may choose to provide us with the email address of a friend, contact or other individual who you believe may wish to join my-pro. If you do so, you must first obtain the consent of the individual. We shall then send an email to the individual on your behalf explaining that you provided their email address to us so that we could contact them and invite them to join my-pro. On no account do we retain an individual’s email address during this process.

Our objective at my-pro is to keep our site free from excessive and inappropriate advertising. With this in mind our site “Sponsor” and “Partners” will only be able to communicate with our users through relevant functions within the site.
The majority of our “Partners” are leading manufacturers operating within the golf industry. Our site “Sponsor” may operate outside of the golf industry. Where appropriate we will provide links to their websites should our users wish to learn more about their products and activities.
We do not control the content or links that appear on our “Partners” websites and are not responsible for the practices employed by them. In addition, these sites or services, including their content and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies. Browsing and interaction on any other website, including websites which have a link to our site, is subject to that website's own terms and policies.
my-pro offers a “Personal Details” page within your profile where you can update your personal details at any time including your full name, email address and optional profile picture. When you are logged in to your profile you can access and edit your personal details from all pages on the site by simply going to your name in the top right hand corner of the screen and selecting “Personal Details” in the drop down menu.
