We collect non-personally-identifying information, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use this Website.
We also collect potentially personally-identifying information, like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. We do not use such information to identify the visitors and we do not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that we use and disclose personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
We may collect and store any personal information you may share with us, like:
- email address, password, physical contact information;
- transactional information based on your activities on the Web Site;
- correspondence through the Web Site to us or a Member;
- computer sign-on data, statistics on page views, traffic to and from the Web Site, and ad data;
- other information, including IP address and standard web log information, and supplemental information from third parties;
- usage statistics.
In each case, we collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described above. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
We do not collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 12. If you believe that a child has provided us with personally identifiable information without the consent of his or her parent or guardian, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org If we become aware that a child under age 12 has provided us with personally identifiable information, we will delete such information.
Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized boat travel experience. We also use the information we receive about you in connection with the services of this website, other users, members, and advertisers that purchase ads on this site. For example, we may use the information we receive from you to:
- provide the services and customer support you request;
- resolve disputes, collect fees, and troubleshoot problems;
- prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities, and enforce the Terms;
- customize, measure, and improve our services and the Web Sites' content and layout;
- tell you about targeted marketing, service updates, and promotional offers based on your communication preferences; and compare information for accuracy, and verify it with third parties.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
We disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that:
- need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide services available at the Website, and
- that have agreed not to disclose it to others.
Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using the Website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. In addition, in some cases we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if our company or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that our company goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of our company may continue to use your personal and non-personal information only as set forth in this policy.
Other than to our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations or as described above, we disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of our company, third parties or the public at large. Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy, we will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement, other government officials, or other third parties without a subpoena, court order or substantially similar legal procedure, except when we believe in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss or to report suspected illegal activity.
If you are a registered user of our Website and have supplied your email address, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with our company and our services. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. We take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
You should also be aware that if you submit information to “chat rooms,” “forums” or “message boards” such information becomes public information, meaning that you lose any privacy rights you might have with regards to that information. Such disclosures may also increase your chances of receiving unwanted communications.
We don't sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your explicit consent. We do, however, use third-parties for website functionality, analytics, and social sharing. If you are a registered user of Facebook or Twitter, for example, our site enables your use of certain Facebook and Twitter sharing features. Social network widgets, however, may collect your social network “browser” cookies, regardless of whether you use social sharing widgets. If you are a member of social networks, you should consult the respective social networks’ privacy disclosures for more information about how they collect and share information.
Links to Third Party Sites
We want you to feel confident about using the Website to make boat rental arrangements, and we are committed to protecting the information we collect. While no website or online service can guarantee security, including ours, we have implemented appropriate administrative, technical, and physical security procedures to help protect the personal information you provide to us. We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure.
All non-personally-identifying information, potentially personally-identifying and personally identifying-information described above is stored on restricted database servers.
If we ever send you information by e-mail concerning new products, services or information that you did not expressly request, we will provide you with an e-mail address by which you may request no further notices.
Address Book Data
Any external address book data (email contacts, etc.) that a user voluntarily gives our company access to will only be used for the described feature (looking up friends, etc.), and will not be stored or repurposed.
Accessing, Reviewing and Changing your Personal Information
You can see, review and change most of your personal information or delete your account by logging into the Web Site at www.seayourboat.com Generally, we will not manually modify your personal information because it is very difficult to verify your identity remotely. You must promptly update your personal information if it changes or is inaccurate. Upon your request, we will close your account and remove your personal information as soon as reasonably possible, based on your account activity and in accordance with applicable law. We do retain personal information from closed accounts in order to comply with law, prevent fraud, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce the Terms, and take other actions otherwise permitted by law.
