Personal Information Maintenance & Opt-Out
How Do We Use Personal Information?
TMaG will never disclose your email address to third parties for use in connection with any email marketing campaign of a third party or business partner (excluding TMaG subsidiary companies).
TMaG may always use personal information in the following ways:
- to enable us to respond to you generally, or to process, validate and verify requests and/or purchase orders
- to perform any services requested by you
- to compile and/or distribute aggregate - never individual - information about our website users and aggregate usage patterns
- to provide our own website designers with useful information for developing new features and services that meet your needs
- to tailor your experience on our websites, showing you content we think might interest you or altering the content according to your personal preferences
- as part of an online employment application to evaluate your qualifications only
TMaG will not disclose your email address for use in connection with a third party's marketing efforts.
If you have not "opted-out" of our use and disclosure of your personal information, TMaG may also use personal information for all marketing and survey purposes on behalf of itself and its affiliates and subsidiaries. TMaG may appoint third party agents in connection with such marketing and survey efforts. TMaG may disclose personal information to select business partners for use in connection with direct mail marketing efforts, but that personal information will not include your email address.
If you have "opted-out", TMaG will use or disclose your personal information only as stated above, or: (1) when legally ordered to do so by a lawful subpoena or court order, (2) if you violate or breach an agreement with TMaG, (3) if we believe you will harm the property or rights of TMaG or those of TMaG's other customers, (4) under exigent circumstances to protect the physical safety of TMaG, its employees, users or the general public, or (5) to validate credit card numbers for charging for fee services.
TMaG may share aggregate statistical information with business partners, sponsors or other third parties, but none of them receive individual identifying information about you. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of visitors visited a certain area on a website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out registration forms, but we would not disclose anything that uniquely identifies those individuals.
Unsolicited Emails Received by You
TMaG does not send unsolicited bulk emails to anyone who has requested that we do not contact them. We send our newsletters only to those who have taken affirmative steps to subscribe. If you have inadvertently received one of our newsletters, or if you simply wish to stop receiving them, please follow the "unsubscribe" instructions contained in each newsletter or send a request to be unsubscribed to email@example.com.

The TMaG Websites may now or in the future include chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups. Any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information. You should exercise caution before disclosing your personal information via these public venues, which you do at your own risk. If you do so, you may receive unsolicited emails or "spam" from others. TMaG cannot safeguard the privacy of personal information that is disclosed online in this manner.

TMaG does not store or record the Internet Protocol ("IP") addresses of visitors to the Website for marketing purposes, although we may store IP addresses in server logs for system maintenance purposes or to store the source location whenever someone provides Personal Information. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. An Internet Service Providers ("ISP") typically assigns a random IP addresses at the time of your dial-up. For local area network ("LAN"), DSL, or cable modem users, an IP address may be permanently assigned to a particular computer. We cannot determine your identity solely based upon your IP address. Your IP address can, however, reveal what geographic area you are connecting from, or which ISP you are using. Finally, other websites you visit have IP addresses, and we may collect the IP addresses of those websites and their pages, but these IP addresses are never associated with Internet users.
The TMaG Websites contain electronic images (called "pixels", "transparent GIF files", or "web beacons") that allow us and our advertising partners to view and access cookies. In general, any electronic image viewed as part of a web page, including an ad banner, can act as a web beacon. Web beacons are small in order not to use valuable space on the computer screen that is better used to display helpful content. In some cases these files are provided by our online management partner. These files enable our online management partner to recognize a unique cookie on your web browser, which in turn enables us to learn which advertisements bring users to our website. The cookie was placed by us or by another advertiser that works with our online management partner. We may also include web beacons in HTML-formatted newsletters containing graphics that we send to opt-in subscribers, so we may count the number of newsletters that have been opened and read. We may also use the web beacon and cookies to monitor your online behavior and interests on the TMaG Websites. With both cookies and web beacons, the information that we collect and share is anonymous and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or email address. For more information about third party cookies, including information about how to opt out of these technologies, click here.
The TMaG Websites use physical, electronic and managerial security measures to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of information under our control.
- We use Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") connections with 128-bit encryption for certain transactions and confidential data. When you use a secure browser, all information you submit comes to us over the Internet in an encrypted form. Every secure page uses a digital certificate issued by a third-party certification authority. A "site certificate" sits on all secure pages. To view this certificate, click on the image of the closed lock or the solid key on the bottom bar of your browser window.
- We monitor system and application activity logs to identify any unusual activity from authorized and/or unauthorized individuals accessing our systems and/or making changes to stored information. We regularly perform preventative system maintenance and monitoring to ensure the security of our data systems.
- We maintain our servers in locked facilities with secure access. Backup tapes are retrieved daily and stored by an independent company in a secure, off-site location.

We recommend you do not divulge your password to anyone. TMaG will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited telephone call or email.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit, and you do so at your own risk. You can report network abuse and any risk of security violations to us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

TaylorMade is committed to the fight against counterfeit products. TaylorMade's global enforcement efforts are extensive and include a variety of areas such as working directly and collectively with local, federal and international agencies and actively participating in coalitions to rid the marketplace of fakes and help keep it clean for the golf consumer who is looking for the high quality merchandise that TaylorMade offers.
Among other anti-counterfeiting efforts, TaylorMade is part of the Golf Anti-Counterfeiting Working Group, working with other golf companies to combat the fakes and educate the consumer. To learn more about the Golf Anti-Counterfeiting Working Group and the most recent collective raid actions, activities and media coverage on this subject, visit http://www.keepgolfreal.com.
Despite TaylorMade and the rest of the golf industry's efforts, sales of counterfeit and knock-off golf products to unsuspected consumers continues to occur. This page contains information that may assist you in avoiding becoming another victim of a counterfeit seller.
Q: How can I be sure that I purchase authentic TaylorMade products?
Q: I found a listing for TaylorMade products on eBay? Is the product counterfeit? Is the seller authorized to sell your products on eBay?
A: Authorized TaylorMade accounts may sell genuine TaylorMade, adidas Golf and Ashworth products on eBay, but must be registered with TaylorMade to do so. For a listing of authorized eBay sellers, please go to the following page: http://www.taylormadegolf.com/customerservice-faqs#ebay. If you make a purchase of new TaylorMade, adidas Golf or Ashworth products on eBay from an unauthorized seller, there is a much greater chance that the products offered are counterfeit.
Q: How do I buy genuine TaylorMade discounted clubs?
A: Check out the authorized source for certified pre-owned TaylorMade product http://www.taylormadegolfpreowned.com where you can find certified pre-owned TaylorMade products.
Q: I found a site online that is offering a really good discount on TaylorMade clubs. How can I tell if they are authentic?
A: Many consumers report websites to TaylorMade after they made the unfortunate mistake of falling into the counterfeit trap of a deal that was 'too good to be true'. If the offer is a 'steal' of a price, it is most likely just that. Counterfeit sellers are marketing to consumers with the unauthorized use of TaylorMade trademarks on an inferior product, taking advantage of those who are looking for the high quality TaylorMade product. If the price is low and the source is not an authorized dealer, BUYER BEWARE.
There is the possibility that a consumer will not even receive the purchase as many are being shipped from China, stopped at US Customs and seized. To learn more about the United States Customs and Border Patrol visit http://www.cbp.gov.
Q: I think I have a counterfeit club; can I return it and get a real one?
A: In no event should you send your club to TaylorMade. You may report suspect sellers to TaylorMade but your dispute is between the you and the seller of the fake product. Helpful links to possible resources are:
Did you purchase the item on eBay?
You can find out more about eBay's Replicas, counterfeit items, and unauthorized copies policy http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/replica-counterfeit.html. The link to report a suspect seller or listing is also found through this link.
Did you purchase the item on the internet?
http://www.IC3.gov is a resource for consumers to report Internet related criminal complaints such as counterfeit websites. By visiting http://www.IC3.gov you will see a link that walks you through how to report a suspicious website.
Q: Why should I be concerned about knock-off clubs?
A: Authentic TaylorMade golf clubs have a serial number on the hosel of each wood and on the 5-iron or the 7-iron (depending on the model) in each set of irons. If your club does not have that serial number, it may not be a genuine TaylorMade.
Q: How can I tell if the clubs I just purchased are authentic?
A:You may also consider taking your club to your local authorized TaylorMade dealer to have the dealer inspect it. You can locate a TaylorMade retailer in your area by using our Retail Locator.
Unfortunately, passing a visual inspection does not guarantee that the club is authentic. The only way to be sure is to purchase from authorized TaylorMade dealers.
Who Can I contact at TaylorMade for more information?
If you did not find the answer you were looking for, please email us with your question. Remember, in no event should you send your club to TaylorMade. If you do send us your club, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to send it back to you.
