Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Galway Lawn Tennis Club collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Galway Lawn Tennis Club’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Galway Lawn Tennis Club’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Galway Lawn Tennis Club may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Galway Lawn Tennis Club also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blogs/sites. Galway Lawn Tennis Club only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
