Your personal data will be accessible by our staff through a structured system of authorization and access levels whilst some of our staff may be accessing it from remote locations (as when in a marina). Our personnel receive training on Data Protection issues so that they have a good understanding of the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data and take great care to ensure that their handling practices minimize such risk (so for example, your printed charter documentation will move through the various stages required to obtain a permit to sail always enclosed in company folder and will never be left unattended or accessible by unauthorized persons).
Your personal data will be shared by us on an as-necessary basis with service providers (e.g. IT provider, analytics companies, pay per click (PPC) and E-Newsletters services), operational partners (e.g. fleet operators, charter brokers, yacht owners, yacht crews, charter-base operators), other suppliers (for as long as they are required to provide you services or goods ordered through us) and competent authorities but the amount of your information shared will at all times be limited to the minimum required for the purpose it is intended to serve, always taking under consideration the nature and sensitivity of personal data.
