Collegiate Golf Alliance

The following represent the Collegiate Golf Alliance's (CGA) policies pertaining to customer data and financial transactions.

Communication and Privacy Policy

The CGA will not share any customer data without the customer's express opt-in approval to do so.  The CGA will not contact its members with advertisements or special offers without their express approval to do so.  During the customer account creation process -- and at any time thereafter -- customers may choose the degree to which their personal information is used by the CGA.  There are four levels of opt-in data usage and communication that a customer may choose:

  1. No data sharing or communication from CGA or its partners
  2. Receive email updates from CGA regarding events hosted by the member's affiliated universities
  3. Receive general e-mail updates and special offers from the CGA
  4. Receive e-mail updates and special offers from the CGA's partner companies

Refund Policy

Any funds collected online by the CGA are sent directly to the Tournament Director.  Therefore, in the circumstance that an event is cancelled or a player decides he no longer wants to play, all requests for refunds must be made to the Tournament Director, not the Collegiate Golf Alliance.  As such, refunds are at the sole discretion of the Tournament Director pursuant to the event's refund and cancellation policy.

The CGA is not responsible in any manner for refunding registration fees to individual event participants.

Credit Card Data Encryption

All credit card transactions initiated on the CGA website are secured using encryption technology.  The Simple Integration Method (SIM) improves the WebLink and Relay Response connection methods by using a script to encrypt transaction information.

Using SIM, a transaction is initiated in the following way:

1.  The merchant retrieves a transaction key from the Merchant Interface. (The transaction key is similar to a password and is used by the system to generate a transaction fingerprint.

2.  The merchant creates an HTML page that either includes an embedded script or points to a script that has been installed on the merchantís Web server.

3.  The script, whether on a server or embedded in the HTML page itself, generates the unique fingerprint (using the transaction key) and submits it to the gateway with the transaction information.

4.  The fingerprint is used by the gateway to authenticate that the transaction originated from an authorized merchant. If the transaction is authenticated, it is then submitted for authorization. If the transaction cannot be authenticated by the system using the fingerprint, it is rejected.

 

If you have any questions about these policies, please contact the CGA at info@cgagolflinks.com.
