This Privacy Statement governs the online information collection practices of Augusta National, Inc. ("ANI"). ANI and any and all entities that control, are controlled by, or are affiliated with ANI are collectively referred to herein as "we," "us" or "our". It outlines the types of information that we gather about you while you are using Masters.com (the "Site"), and the ways in which we use and don't use this information. This Privacy Statement does not apply to information that we may collect offline and/or through other means (for example, at a live event, via telephone, or through the mail).
If we make a material change to the way in which we collect, use, and/or share your personal information, we will post the changes on this page. If the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice. Please refer to this policy regularly. Your use of the Site following any such notice will signify and constitute your assent to and acceptance of the revised Privacy Statement.
Non-personally identifiable information cannot be tied back to an individual user of the Site. We may use non-personally identifiable information collected from you and other users to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics. These aggregated statistics may be used to improve the Site and for product development and marketing purposes generally. We also may provide such aggregated information to advertisers, sponsors, licensees and other existing or potential ANI vendors for certain purposes, but such statistics contain no personally identifiable information and cannot be used to gather such information.
We collect information through technology to make the Site more useful to you and for various purposes related to our business. For instance, when you come to our Site, we collect your IP address. An IP address is associated with the access point through which you enter the Internet, and is typically controlled by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Your IP address alone is not personally identifiable. We may use IP addresses to collect information regarding the frequency with which you visit various parts of our Site, and we may combine IP addresses with personally identifiable information.
Our Site also collects information through a variety of technical methods, including, without limitation, cookies and Web beacons. Cookies are pieces of information that a Web site sends to your computer while you are viewing the Web site. Web beacons are small pieces of data that are embedded in images on the pages of Web sites. Cookies, web beacons and other technical methods may involve the transmission of information either directly to us or to another party authorized by us to collect information on our behalf.B.

Access to your personally identifiable information by these contractors is limited to the information reasonably necessary in order for these Outside Contractors to perform their limited function for us. We also require that these contractors (i) protect the privacy of your personally identifiable information consistent with this Privacy Statement, and (ii) not use or disclose your personally identifiable information for any purpose other than providing us with products or services for which we contracted. We may disclose your personal information to third parties in connection with a corporate transaction, where all or a portion of our business or assets (including our associated customer lists containing your personal information) are sold or transferred.
