Privacy Policy

We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors; this policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.

1. What information do we collect?

We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data:

  • information that you provide to us for the purpose of registering with us (including name, email address, contact numbers, and postal address) 
  • information that you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to our website services, email notifications and/or newsletters
  • any other information that you choose to send to us.

2. Cookies

We use cookies on this website. A cookie is a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The text file is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.

We may send a cookie which may be stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. We may use the information we obtain from the cookie in the administration of this website, to improve the website's usability and for marketing purposes. We may also use that information to recognise your computer when you visit our website, and to personalise our website for you.

Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking 'Tools', 'Internet Options', 'Privacy', and selecting 'Block all cookies' using the sliding selector. This will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.

3. Data Protection Notice

The information provided by you will be held and processed by Archerfield & Fidra Golf Courses Limited for the purposes of assessing your enquiry for membership, and by Archerfield House for record-keeping, analysis for marketing or advertising purposes, and for sending you newsletters and other information directly connected with the business of the Archerfield Links.

Subject to applicable data protection legislation, Archerfield & Fidra Golf Courses Limited may give information about you and your application to:

  • its employees and agents, to deal with your Membership and Member's accounts, and on the understanding that they keep such information confidential;
  • anyone to whom it transfers or may transfer its rights and duties under its agreement with you; and
  • Archerfield & Fidra Golf Courses Limited will not pass on your personal details to anyone else without your prior consent. From time to time it issues marketing material about Archerfield Links and other services and products provided by Archerfield & Fidra Golf Courses Limited. Please let us know if you would like to receive any such marketing information by emailing mail@archerfieldgolfclub.com.

5. Security of your personal data

We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. Data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.

You are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential. We will not ask you for your password.
