Privacy Policy

Your privacy is vitally important to us. At LiveYachting we have an important list of elementary principles when it comes to Privacy:

- We won’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. We don’t need to know details about your gender or income.

- We won’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.

- We won’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

When making posts and adding information on the website, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what is visible to the public, what is seen by search engines, what is kept private, and what is permanently deleted.

Here is our privacy policy which incorporates these principles:

It is the policy of LiveYachting (“LiveYachting”) to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors
Like most website operators, LiveYachting collects information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available. This may include the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request and more. LiveYachting’s purpose in collecting the information is to better understand how LiveYachting’s visitors use its website and operate online.

From time to time, LiveYachting may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. LiveYachting also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to LiveYachting’s websites choose to interact with LiveYachting in ways that require LiveYachting to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that LiveYachting gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in any transactions with LiveYachting are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, LiveYachting collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with LiveYachting. LiveYachting does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. 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 and services.

Aggregated Statistics
LiveYachting may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, LiveYachting may monitor the most popular posts or pages or members on the LiveYachting.com site or may use a service to help identify spam. LiveYachting may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, LiveYachting does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
LiveYachting discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that:

(i) need to know that information in order to process it on LiveYachting’s behalf or to accomplish their job and provide services available at LiveYachting’s websites, and
(ii) 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 LiveYachting’s websites, you hereby consent to the transfer of such information to them. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, LiveYachting discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when LiveYachting believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of LiveYachting, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user/member of a LiveYachting website and have supplied your email address, LiveYachting 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 LiveYachting and our products. We expect and intent 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. LiveYachting takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies
A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. LiveYachting uses cookies to help LiveYachting identify and track visitors, their usage of LiveYachting website, and their website access preferences. LiveYachting visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using LiveYachting’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of LiveYachting’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Privacy Policy Changes
LiveYachting may change its Privacy Policy from time to time in its sole discretion. LiveYachting encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
