1. Personal Information Collected
We collect your personal information in the following ways:
In order to become a User, you must first create an account on our website. To create an account you are required to provide the following contact information, which you recognize and expressly acknowledge is personal information allowing others, including Clubster, to identify you: name, email, birthday, country, zip code, and a password chosen by you.
Once you become a User, you may provide additional information in the Profile section, such as describing your interests, education, and job. Providing additional information beyond what is required at registration to become a User is entirely optional, but enables you to better identify yourself and find new opportunities in the Clubster system to develop and maintain a network of Club members. Any information you provide at registration or in the Profile section that is not personally identifiable may be used in the same manner and extent to which other information that is not personally identifiable is permitted to be used hereunder, including for the purpose of serving advertisements through the service. If you decide not to provide additional information, you may miss out on the benefits of receiving special offers, advertising, and promotions more relevant to your interests.
In order to invite others to be friends with you directly in Clubster, you may use the Clubster services to invite them if they are a User, or enter their names, email addresses, and/or Home Club name. This information will be used by Clubster to send your invitation including a message that you write. The names and email addresses of people that you invite will be used only to send your invitation and reminders.
Clubster may collect information through the Clubster website in order to, among other things, accurately categorize and respond to a customer’s inquiry and deliver appropriate service levels.
One type of cookie, known as a “persistent” cookie, is set once you’ve logged in to your Clubster account. The next time you visit the Clubster website, the persistent cookie will allow us to recognize you as an existing User so you will not need to log in before using the service. In order to access or change any of your private information (like a credit card number) or to send a message to another User, however, you must log in securely again with your password even if your computer contains your persistent cookie.
Additionally, if you log out of the Clubster website you will need to re-enter your password the next time you visit in order to log in to your account. Another type of cookie, called a “session” cookie, is used to identify a particular visit to the Clubster website. Session cookies expire after a short time or when you close your web browser.
Log files, IP addresses and information about your computer
Due to the communications standards on the Internet, when you visit the Clubster web site we automatically receive the URL of the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave Clubster. We also receive the Internet protocol (IP) address of your computer (or the proxy server you use to access the World Wide Web), your computer operating system and type of web browser you are using, email patterns, as well as the name of your ISP. This information is used to analyze overall trends to help us improve the Clubster service. The linkage between your IP address and your personally identifiable information is not shared with third-parties without your permission or except when required by law.
Consent to Clubster Processing Information About You
Rights to Access, Correct and Eliminate Information About You
You have a right to access, modify, correct and eliminate the data about you which has been collected pursuant to your decision to become a User. If you update any of your information, we may keep a copy of the information which you originally provided to us in our archives for uses documented herein.
We take your rights seriously and encourage you to use them if you deem this to be appropriate. You may exercise these rights by emailing us at info@Clubster.com or by contacting us at:

2. Uses of personal information
Clubster is an online service dedicated to helping Private Clubs and Club members more effectively connect with one another. The personally identifiable information you choose to provide on our website is used to help you describe yourself to other Users. Other information, that does not personally identify you as an individual, is collected by Clubster from Users (such as, for example, patterns of utilization) and is exclusively owned by Clubster. This information can be utilized by Clubster in such manner as Clubster, in its sole discretion, deems appropriate.
Clubster will communicate with you through email and notices posted on the Clubster website or through other means available through the service, including text and other forms of messaging. If we send any communications to you via the carrier service with which you have a mobile communications subscription or otherwise have access, you understand you will pay any service fees associated with any such access (including text messaging charges for messages to your mobile device). These may include a series of welcome emails which help inform new Users about various features of the service. Please be aware that you will always receive certain emails from Clubster related to the proper functioning of your account, such as email notices when another User in your network sends you an opportunity.
Information provided to Clubster (or to third parties with whom it offers combined services) is also used to customize your experience on our website. For example, when you login to your account we may display the names of new Users who have recently joined your Club network.
Sharing Information with Third Parties
Clubster takes the privacy of Users very seriously. We do not sell, rent, or otherwise provide your personally identifiable information to third parties for marketing purposes. You may have the opportunity to interact with sponsors and advertisers and share information with them if you choose to participate.
We may provide aggregated anonymous data about the usage of our services to third parties for such purposes as we deem, in our sole discretion, to be appropriate, including to prospective advertisers on Clubster. We may segment our Users in various ways.
Surveys and Polls
As a User, you may receive requests to participate in market research including polls and surveys submitted by Clubster. If you participate in surveys and polls offered through our website, the information you provide may be visible to others using the Clubster website.
If you post on the Answers section of Clubster, or use a bulletin board, import a blog, or participate in a chat room, or forum on Clubster, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you choose to provide there can be read, collected, or used by other Users of these forums, as well as Platform Developers and other third parties, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. Clubster is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums.
It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information when required by law, such as responses to civil or criminal subpoenas, or other requests by law enforcement personnel. We will disclose such information wherein we have a good-faith belief that it is necessary to comply with a court order, ongoing judicial proceeding, subpoena, or other legal process or request to Clubster brought in any country throughout the world, or to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
Disclosures to others
We may also disclose your personal and other information you provide, to another third party as part of reorganization or a sale of the assets of a Clubster corporation division or company. Any third party to which we transfer or sell Clubster’s assets will have the right to continue to use the personal and other information that you provide to us.
3. Your Information Choices
Accessing and Changing Your Account Information
You can review the personal information you provided us and make any desired changes to the information you publish, or to the settings for your Clubster account including your email, and contact preferences, at any time by logging in to your Account settings on the Clubster website. Please be aware that even after your request for a change is processed, Clubster may, for a time, retain residual information about you in its backup and/or archival copies of its database.
Closing Your Account
You can also close your account through the Clubster website. If you close your Clubster account, we will remove your name and other personally identifiable information from our publicly viewable database. We may retain certain data contributed by you if we believe it may be necessary to prevent fraud or future abuse, or for legitimate business purposes, such as analysis of aggregated, non-personally identifiable data, account recovery, or if required by law. To request that we close your account and remove your information from the Clubster website, please send your request to info@Clubster.com. Please send your request using an email account that you have registered with Clubster under your name. You will receive a response to requests sent to info@Clubster.com within five business days of its receipt.
4. Your Obligations
As a User, you have certain obligations toward the other Users with whom you will be communicating. Certain of these obligations are imposed by applicable law and regulations, and others have become commonplace in user-friendly communities of like-minded members, such as Clubster:
- You must not download or otherwise disseminate any information which may be deemed to be injurious, violent, offensive, racist or xenophobic or which may otherwise violate the purpose and spirit of Clubster and its community of Users.
- You must not provide information to Clubster and /or other Users which you believe might be injurious or detrimental to your person, professional or social status.
