SHARING YOUR INFORMATION
When processing your personal data in accordance with this Policy, we may disclose your personal data to the following third parties:
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
We are committed to ensuring that your personal data is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and operational procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect and hold about you. In particular, we protect your personal data by deploying SSL and high standard encryption algorithms.
We will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard your personal information. However, you should be aware that the use of the internet is not entirely secure and for this reason we cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any personal information which is transferred from you or to you via the internet.
To help us protect your personal data, you agree to comply with those security policies and procedures that we make available on our website from time to time.
You also agree to take all reasonable steps to prevent the unauthorised or fraudulent use of your login details. If you suspect that anyone else knows your username and password, you must notify us immediately by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to allow us to provide our services to you and support the operation of this site, we may have to transfer your personal data to one or more countries outside the United Kingdom which do not have statutory data protection frameworks in place that are equivalent to those in the United Kingdom.
If we transfer personal data to countries outside of the United Kingdom, we may rely on: (a) a lawful exception to the rules relating to overseas data transfers (for example, you have given your explicit consent or it is necessary to make the transfer to fulfil our contract with you); (b) a decision from the Secretary of State (or other mechanism permitted under the Data Protection Laws) determining that the country provides an adequate level of protection to the Data Protection Laws; or (c) appropriate safeguards in respect of transfers of personal data to a country outside of United Kingdom (for example, by requiring the recipient of the personal data in the other country to agree to the standard contractual clauses or international data transfer agreement approved under the Data Protection Laws).
Retaining your Information
We take steps with a view to permanently deleting, destroying or anonymising your personal data (which means that we are no longer able to identify you from it) when it is no longer necessary for the purpose that it was collected and we are not required by law to keep it.
How long we keep your personal data depends upon the purpose for which your personal data was collected was provided. Generally, we will keep the information no longer than is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which the data was collected (for example, to provide our services to you or for our legitimate internal business purposes). After that, we will only keep information about you if it is necessary for us to do so to comply with our legal obligations.
In general, if you are a Seafarer and you have signed up with us or contacted us, but have never worked with us, we will delete your information after 5 years. For Seafarers who have worked with us, we will keep your information for a period of 7 years. In both cases, we may still retain your information after this time if it is needed to resolve ongoing issues such as an outstanding payment or complaint you have raised.
We keep this Policy under regular review. If we make any changes to this Policy we will post the changes on this page, and place notices on other pages of our website, so that you are made aware of the information we collect and how we use it at all times.
By continuing to use and access our website or our services following such changes, you accept any Policy variation that we may have made and notified in accordance with the above arrangements. It is your responsibility to check these terms from time to time to ensure that you are aware of any changes.
