This includes network and connection information such as your operating system and the type of browser you use, language, time zone and technical information such as the type of device you use.

This is a case-by-case determination. In order to comply with the requirements of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), when we no longer need to keep your information to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, we will either remove it from our systems or depersonalise it so that we cannot identify you.

  • Enforce our Terms and any other applicable terms and policies;

  • Protect the rights, property, and safety of our users.

In limited cases, the law permits us to keep your personal information indefinitely, provided that appropriate technical protection measures are put in place (such as anonymisation, encryption, etc). We will continue to use and disclose such Personal data in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

No, we don't share or sell your personal information to advertisers, other third parties or social media platforms of any sort.

We may share your information across Nautycal Pty Ltd's group companies in full compliance with applicable data protection rules.

We only share information if we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety, rights, or property of the public, any person, or ourselves; or to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.

How do you keep my personal information safe?

Our security measures comply also with the requirements of the GDPR and include:

  • Adopting a risk-based approach to securing the personal information of our users;
  • Using selective pseudonymisation and encryption of personal information kept by us;
  • Designing systems with the goal of enabling us to protect the confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of our processing systems and services;
  • Using systems and processes designed to give us the ability to restore the availability and access to your personal information in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident;
  • Regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of our security measures.
