At Tallship Island Adventures we are committed to respecting your privacy. As a visitor to one of our websites, we only want to contact you if you wish to be contacted by us. With that in mind, we offer you the following details of how we gather, use, share and protect the information collected at this website.
1. What kinds of information does Tallship Island Adventures collect?
Tallship Island Adventures websites can collect information about you in a number of ways. One way we do this is by directly requesting information from you (as on a sweepstakes or contest entry form, as part of a product registration page, in response to a survey or on similar webpages where you are able to enter information into data fields and then send this information back to Tallship Island Adventures). You may be given the opportunity to voluntarily provide us with your name, address, phone number, fax number, email address, and similar information about you as an individual. We may also ask you questions about your interests, your buying preferences or your lifestyle. We refer to all of this information as your "Personal Information."
From time to time, you may also be given the opportunity to give us feedback about our products or services or to post messages for others to read. Sometimes this is done anonymously. Other times your name or other identifying features may be attached. This process will always be voluntary and we will explain to you how the information will be used whenever we ask for it.
Tallship Island Adventures intends to give you as much control as possible over your Personal Information. In general, you can visit Tallship Island Adventures on the Internet without telling us who you are or revealing any Personal Information about yourself. There are times, however, when we may need your Personal Information in order to respond to or process your requests or to allow you to participate in online promotions. It is our intent to let you know before we collect information from you on the Internet.
If you choose to give Tallship Island Adventures Personal Information via the Internet, it is also our intent to let you know how we will use such information. If you tell us that you do not wish to have this Personal Information used as a basis for further contact with you, we will respect your wishes.
