Effective Date: February 9, 2017

Brunswick respects your concerns about privacy and values its relationship with you. 

This Privacy Policy applies to information collected by Brunswick Corporation, any affiliated or subsidiary companies (“Brunswick,” “we” or “us”), offline or online, including, but not limited to all websites or apps that post a link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, “the Sites”).

This Privacy Policy explains the types of information we collect, how we may use that information, and with whom we may share it. Our Privacy Policy also describes the measures we take to protect the security of the information. We also tell you how you can reach us to update your contact information, remove your name from our mailing lists, or get answers to questions you may have about our privacy practices. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. By continuing to interact with our sites, you are agreeing to the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT

You may choose to provide personal information including your name, address, telephone number, employer, email address, site password, and demographic information, health information, or financial information when you visit the Sites, create an account with us, or register a product or purchase with the Sites. Some of our sites may also offer you the option to interact with, capture, or save information through the Sites such as photos or forum posts.

We may also automatically collect information about the devices you use to interact with our Sites. The information we automatically collect may include device identifier, web browser, precise geolocation (with your knowledge and consent), and browsing information collected through cookies and beacons on our Sites, and IP address. We may also automatically collect information about how you use the Sites, such as what you have searched for and viewed with the Sites.  The information automatically collected will be associated with any personal information you have provided. 

USE OF INFORMATION

The personal information we collect may be used where Brunswick has a legitimate interest in or other legal basis for processing such data.  In some situations the collection of personal information may be required for the operation of the Sites or to provide certain services or products.  The information we collect may be processed for the following purposes:

  • To serve the functions of the Sites;
  • To manage everyday business needs, such as administration and improvement of the Sites;
  • To analyze the Sites’ performance and functioning;
  • To prevent fraud; to enforce the Sites’ Terms of Use; to comply with all applicable laws and corporate reporting obligations; and to enforce Brunswick’s agreements;
  • To analyze how you use the Sites and to perform other market research;
  • To communicate with you about our products and services;
  • To provide you with advertisements based on your interests;
  • To provide you with information on financial options for the purchase of our products;
  • To facilitate your interaction through our Sites with other consumers, including through social networking; and
  • To send you further notices, promotions, solicitations, brochures, or other marketing materials regarding our Sites, our products, and the services of our businesses, affiliates, business partners, or authorized dealers. 

We may use your personal information to develop a personal profile about you.  We may use the personal information in your profile to respond to requests for financial options for purchasing products and services from us.

If you notify us that you do not wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, we will not send you marketing information.      

Our Sites do not collect personal information about your online activities over time and across third party websites or online services.  Therefore, “do not track” signals transmitted from web browsers do not apply to our sites, and we do not alter any of our data collection and use practices upon receipt of such a signal.

Additional ways in which personal information may be collected and/or used are as follows:

Information You Provide

Precise Geolocation Information. In order to use some of the Sites, you may be required to allow Brunswick to collect your precise geolocation, with your knowledge and consent, to provide you with a product or service. 

We may also use this precise geolocation information for analytics purposes, and may share your precise geolocation and information with third parties, including but not limited to dealers and parties who provide targeted advertising and analytics services. 

Information Request. If you request information about our products (e.g., ordering a brochure, a catalogue, or a magazine), we may ask you to provide personal information and details, such as your name, email address, telephone number, intended use of the relevant product, interests, etc. You may choose to provide additional comments and requests. We, or the authorized dealer in your area, will use your details to send you the information you request and may use this information to communicate with you in the future about our products or services.

Newsletters and Other Communications.  We may offer online or offline newsletters and other communications about our products, services and promotions.

Solicitations may take the form of mailings via U.S. mail; other couriers; or (if provided) email.

Some of our Sites enable you to locate a dealer near you through the “find dealer” request form.  Where this service is available, it is completely voluntary and you will have a choice as to whether to provide your personal information.  In order to assist you in locating a dealer, we will ask you for information, such as your first and last name, full postal address and telephone number. We use this information to locate a dealer near you, to evaluate your needs and to give you the best and most relevant service.

Information We Automatically Collect

Cookies.  Like many companies, we use “cookies” on some of our Sites. Cookies are pieces of code placed on your devices when you visit certain websites. We use cookies to tell us, for example, whether you have visited us before or if you are a new visitor and to help us identify features of the Sites in which you may have the greatest interest. Cookies may enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular website.

Linked websites may have their own privacy notices or policies, which we strongly suggest you review if you visit any linked websites.

Please consult the privacy policies of those third parties to determine how they collect and use your personal information.

Information and resources to opt out of interest-based advertising are available from the Digital Advertising Alliance at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/.  You may also opt out of tracking and receiving targeted advertisements on your mobile device by some mobile advertising companies and other similar entities by downloading the App Choices app at www.aboutads.info/appchoices.   Please note opting out through these mechanisms does not opt you out of being served advertising.
