Your privacy on littleshipclub.co.uk This website is administered by the Little Ship Club. The purpose of littleshipclub.co.uk is to provide our members with information about the Club's activities and to enable non-members to learn a little about us. We want you to feel secure when visiting our site and are committed to maintaining your privacy when doing so. The following provides an overview of how we protect your privacy during your visit.
1:What information do we gather? Information on littleshipclub.co.uk is gathered in two ways: (1) indirectly (for example, through our site's technology); and (2) directly (for example, when you provide information on various pages of littleshipclub.co.uk). One example of information we collect indirectly is through our Internet access logs. When you access littleshipclub.co.uk, your Internet address is automatically collected and is placed in our Internet access logs. We also collect data about the use you make of the site using anonymous cookies that track the pages you use. We use this information to help us find out what things members find useful on the site and to spot problems members might be having using the site.
We collect information directly from you in a number of ways, some of which we describe in this Privacy Statement. We collect information when you voluntarily submit it to us. For example, when a skipper places a requirement for crew on the website. It is completely up to you whether or not you want to provide this information. When you use our site to purchase tickets for rallies or social events we do not store your credit card details at all.
2: How do we use this information? In general, we explain the use of the information provided at the point at which you provide it. We may also use this information to determine what is most effective about our site, to help us identify ways to improve it.
3: Will we share this with outside parties? The information that you provide is intended purely for use by the Little Ship Club and its members. Your information will not be sold or passed onto external parties. Should a situation arise whereby information needs to be passed to a third party, for example catering at an external event, we will notify you as to why we are asking for specific information, before you submit it, and it is completely up to you whether or not you want to provide it.
4: What about sensitive personal data? We do not generally seek to collect sensitive personal data through this site. If we do seek to collect such data, we will ask you to consent to our proposed uses of the data. We may also collect some sensitive personal data incidentally. By providing us with unsolicited sensitive personal data, you consent to our using the data subject to applicable law as described in this Privacy Statement. The references to "sensitive personal data" are to the various categories of personal data identified by European and other data privacy laws as requiring special treatment, including in some circumstances the need to obtain explicit consent. These categories comprise personal identity numbers, personal data about personality and private life, racial or ethnic origin, nationality, political opinions, membership of political parties or movements, religious, philosophical or other similar beliefs, membership of a trade union or profession or trade association, physical or mental health, genetic code, addictions, sexual life, property matters or criminal record (including information about suspected criminal activities).
5: Do we give you access to your information? You are entitled to know whether we hold information about you and, if we do, to have access to that information and require it to be corrected if it is inaccurate. You can do this by contacting us via our Club Office.
6: What about data security? We take appropriate steps to maintain the security of your data on littleshipclub.co.uk. You should understand that the open nature of the Internet is such that data may flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended. However when you use our secure transaction pages the connection between our web server and the acquirer of the card transaction (PayPal) is made using a secure and encrypted connection. Your card details are not recorded by the site nor ar they stored by us.
7:Conclusion That's it in a nutshell. The short of it is - we are interested in maintaining your privacy and creating a valuable resource for you to use. If you have any questions now or during your visit, please contact us via our Club Office.
