Your privacy is critically important to us. At Boat Basin Foundation we have a few fundamental principles:
Boat Basin Foundation ("BBF") operates several different websites. It is our policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, BBF collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. BBF’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how BBF’s visitors use its website. From time to time, BBF may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
BBF also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. BBF does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Certain visitors to BBF’s websites choose to interact with BBF in ways that require BBF to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that BBF gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a newsletter, and hence the user must provide a name and email address. Those who engage in transactions with BBF – by purchasing a product from BBF, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, BBF collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with BBF. BBF 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.
BBF may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, BBF may monitor the most popular pages on our website. BBF may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, BBF does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
BBF 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 BBF’s behalf or to provide services available at BBF’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 BBF’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. BBF will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, BBF discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when BBF believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of BBF, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an BBF website and have supplied your email address, BBF 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 BBF and our products. 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. BBF takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
