LEGAL BASE & PURPOSE OF PERSONAL DATA PROCESSING

We may receive personal data of yours from third parties such as charter broker or travel agency as when you will be placing an inquiry for our products or services through them.
Automated Technology Interactions:
By visiting and browsing our websites, we may automatically collect statistical and technical data that can identify your device and town but not you as a person. We collect this personal data by using server logs, cookies and data analytics technologies and services provided by third party suppliers such as Google based outside the EU. Please refer to our Cookies Policy for more information.
Should you be chartering a yacht, it is also possible that we may automatically collect yacht coordinates tracking information mainly for safety and emergency handling purposes but also so as to enhance the level of charter base service level you receive.
WHAT PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT
The amount and type of personal data we collect is at all times reasonable, necessary and maintained to the minimum requirement imposed by criterion of necessity for operational and contract performance, legal requirement or other legitimate interest per level of interaction.
HOW WE USE PERSONAL DATA
Other than for the specific purposes agreed with you, any information collected can be processed and used without your knowledge or consent for legitimate purposes only, when this is required or permitted by Law.
The two principal uses of your information are Operational / Legal requirements and Marketing.
Operational & Legal Requirements
Commonly refer to when we need to,
Le Grand Bleu shall never sell or make otherwise available your personal information to any third party for the purposes of advertising.
We use information collected from you to,
If you have contacted us requesting information, or inquired for goods or services from us or subscribed to our newsletters or publications, or registered for a competition or promotion organized by us, or provided us with your contact details during a fair, or received goods or services from us and on condition that you have not opted out of such an activity then you may be receiving marketing communications from us.
DATA STORAGE & RETENTION
Your information is stored on our computers and protected as well as servers owned by third parties as further explained below. We implement a variety of procedures and technologies including software security (firewall, antivirus, data encryption) to protect your information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.
Just like almost any business worldwide we obtain business essential services such as e-mailing and data storage from external suppliers. We take great care in selecting only reputable trustworthy suppliers such as Google, Microsoft, Dropbox and Mailchimp especially because they process and store your data on servers of their own that are dispersed in many countries and so possibly located outside the country where you live or the European Economic Area (EEA).
Despite all reasonable measures being taken, it is well understood that no business can fully eliminate security risks associated with information.
How long we retain your data
Your personal data is retained for as long as it is required to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, or as mandated by applicable legislation and regulations (including tax and accounting requirements as well as purposes of an investigation or dispute).
You may at any time unsubscribe from our marketing activities (i.e. Newsletters and Publications) and we will immediately update your marketing preferences so you will no longer be receiving marketing activities from us. However, your personal data previously collected (including any e-mails exchanged) can and will be retained for legal and legitimate purposes (as when such information is pertinent to a previous service order of yours).
WHO WE SHARE PERSONAL DATA WITH
Sharing your information is strictly limited to serving legitimate purpose and Le Grand Bleu will never sell or otherwise make your information available to any third party for any purpose which lies beyond operational or legal requirement.
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 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.
YOUR RIGHTS TO YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Subject to applicable Law, you under certain circumstances have the right to request,
To receive more information or exercise any of your rights please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org . Before responding to your request, we may ask you to verify your identity and to provide further details about your request whilst we will make best effort to respond within reasonable time. We normally do not require a fee so you may access your personal data (or process any other request pertinent to your personal data) but please keep in mind that a fee will need to be charged in cases of requests that are clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive.
