BowlsClub.org operates several websites and other services related to the sport of Bowls. This statement details the terms of service and conditions of use. By using our services, including visiting websites operated by us, you agree to be bound by these conditions.
These terms supersede any previous written or verbal agreements between you and BowlsClub.org
BowlsClub.org web sites
All content of this web site is copyright. Reproduction or redistribution in whole or in part is prohibited without written permission from the copyright holder.
Due to bandwidth constraints the use of whole-site download software (sometimes referred to as off-line readers) is not allowed.
Access to the site for the purpose of bulk harvesting of email addresses is prohibited.
BowlsClub.org directory listings
BowlsClub.org welcomes submissions of contact details for all bona fide bowls clubs and bowls associations for inclusion in our directory. Anyone may submit details, but we require that only club officials seek administrative responsibility for their listing. In the interests of maintaining correct relevant listings, we reserve the right to seek verification of details supplied for a club or club secretary and to decline, suspend or modify listings, without notice (though usually we will try to notify you first).
If you have any concerns about the representation of a club or individual in the directory, then please contact us. We take care to avoid storing or publicising personal information without consent, but regrettably, in processing large volumes of data from many public sources, mistakes are possible. We will delete any personal information which is incorrect or held without your consent - if you believe this is the case please contact us.
Web hosting services
Where BowlsClub.org have agreed to provide you web hosting we shall endeavor to provide an uninterrupted web hosting service. However this service is subject to a limited warranty. Under no circumstances shall our liability to you be greater than the annual fee for the service to which you have subscribed. In the event of service interruption or cancellation we shall endeavor to offer a refund or credit for the disrupted period, on a pro rata basis. Such a refund may not apply if interruption was due to circumstances beyond our control or to your negligence.
You agree that you are responsible for maintaining appropriate independent backup records of any information which is vital to the functioning of your club (including, but not limited to, match fixtures, results and membership lists). While we shall endeavor to keep your club's data secure and maintain our own rigorous backup schedule, we shall not be liable in the event of data loss or interruption to service.
You agree that you are responsible for information that is posted on your web site, and hold harmless BowlsClub.org in the event of any legal dispute concerning content on your site. You agree not to place or allow to be placed any content which is in breach of copyright, is libellous, lewd or offensive or which might bring your site or BowlsClub.org into disrepute. You agree to remove any such content immediately and to notify us immediately if any problem may have arisen. Your liability for content on your site does not end even once we have been made aware of such content.
Copyright of content placed on BowlsClub.org sites rests with the author(s) of that content (unless assigned elsewhere). BowlsClub.org retains copyright of the site design and layout, and copyright in compilation for hosted sites. You agree to grant BowlsClub.org a non-exclusive license to reproduce or distribute the content posted on BowlsClub.org for any purpose.
We reserve the right to add, edit, modify or remove content from your site at any time and for any reason without notice. We'll normally try to notify you of any such change.
We may provide you with passwords or other secret information to access our services. You undertake to keep your password secret and to notify us if you believe it is known to someone else or has been misused. You are responsible for any damage caused by someone misusing your password. We reserve the right to revoke your access to the site or change your password for any reason, without notice.
You may not sell advertising space or place links to commercial sponsors on any website hosted by BowlsClub.org without prior permission from BowlsClub.org. Where a company is sponsoring your club we are likely to treat any such request sympathetically and we welcome other suggestions or information about potential advertising and will consider each such notification on a case by case basis.
Misuse/abuse of this site/services
BowlsClub.org provides email services for the purpose of notifying club members of club business or for personal communication between members. Use of these email facilities for other commercial purposes (including the sending of Spam email) is prohibited.
The following principles apply to the personally identifying information we ask for and that you provide. "Personally identifying information" is information that individually identifies you, such as your name, physical address or email address.
Like all websites, BowlsClub.org collects limited non-personally identifying information your browser makes available whenever you visit a website. This log information includes your Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser. We use this information to operate, develop and improve our services.
Some of our services require you to register. BowlsClub.org asks you for some personal information in order to create an account (typically your name, email address and a password for your account) and we will use that information to provide the service. For certain services, we (or our agents) may request credit card or other payment information which is maintained in encrypted form on secure servers.
When we require personally identifying information, we will inform you about the types of information we collect and how we use it. We hope this will help you make an informed decision about sharing your personal information with us.
We will not rent or sell your personally identifying information to other companies or individuals. We may share such information in any of the following limited circumstances:
- We have your consent.
- We provide such information to trusted businesses or persons for the sole purpose of processing personally identifying information on our behalf.
- We conclude that we are required by law or have a good faith belief that access, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of BowlsClub.org, its users or the public.
If you have an account, we may share the information submitted under your account among all of our services in order to provide you with a seamless experience and to improve the quality of our services. We will not disclose your account information to other people or non-affiliated companies, except in the limited circumstances described in this Policy or with your consent.
We may store and process personal information collected on our site in the United Kingdom or in any other country in which BowlsClub.org or its agents maintain facilities. By using our services, you consent to the transfer of your information among these facilities, including those located outside your country.
We may share aggregated information with others. Such information will not include any information which identifies you personally. Examples of this information include the average frequency with which members typically visit their club website or the total number of users.
We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data.
We restrict access to your personally identifying information to those who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services.
