How we collect data
We collect data via our dedicated Synecore Charity Golf Day website, where there is a subscriber and participants registration form. Here, you can also sign up to our email marketing database.
Occasionally, the nature of the event means that we will also collect data via emails to the event team, verbally over the phone or face to face at the event.
Our preferred method of collecting data is through the event’s secure website, which is our central booking and management system.
The person/s responsible for making a booking is/are required to create an account with a username and password before they can complete their online registration for the event.
These individuals are the ‘subscriber’ who is responsible for the booking and amending the information provided for themselves and/or the participants.
Once the subscriber has an account, they can register themselves and others for the event by inputting the necessary business and personal data into the booking form. All of this information is required to guarantee a place at the event.
To complete the booking, the subscriber will be redirected to Just Giving to make payment. If the payment or the data required for the booking is incomplete, a member of the event planning team will contact the user via the information provided.
These cookies store your preferences and past actions. This allows us to make our website more efficient, saving you time and providing the information that you need.

Past event participants have been automatically subscribed to our email marketing list for the event in order to update and provide information on future events. Subscribers can ‘opt out’ at any time using the links within the emails they receive. By clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ link their email address will be automatically added to our suppression lists, which we regularly audit.
As of 2021 our web-based central booking system asks subscribers to ‘opt in’ to receiving email marketing about future events run by Synecore.
If the opt in section is left unmarked, we will only use registered data to confirm event registration and provide necessary updates on the event to the user.

The email marketing messages that we send contain tracking beacons and tracked links that enable us to record the subscriber’s unique engagement relating to clicks, opens, forwards, geographic and demographic reach.
