Collection and Use of Personal Information
Personal information is data that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a single person.
Here are some examples of the types of personal information Seaforde Limited may collect and how we may use it.
What personal information we collect
When you contract with us for a product or service, we may collect a variety of information, including your name, postal address, phone number, email address, passport details, contact preferences and credit card information.
How we use your personal information
The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on Seaforde Limited's latest products and services. It also helps us to improve our services, content and advertising. If you don't want to be on our mailing list, you can opt out anytime by informing us in writing.
We also use personal information to help us develop, deliver and improve our products, services, content and advertising.
From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about purchases of goods and services and changes to our terms, conditions and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with Seaforde Limited, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.
We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis and research to improve Seaforde Limited's products, services and customer communications.
Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information
Sometimes, we may also collect non-personal information — data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:
We may collect information such as occupation, language, postcode, area code, unique device identifier, location and the time zone where a Seaforde Limited product or service is used so that we can better understand customer behaviour and improve our products, services and advertising.
If we do combine non-personal information with personal information, the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.
Disclosure to Third Parties
At times, Seaforde Limited may make certain personal information available to strategic partners that work with Seaforde Limited to provide products and services, or that help Seaforde Limited market to customers.
Seaforde Limited shares personal information with companies who provide services such as information processing, extending credit, fulfilling customer orders, delivering products and services to you, managing and enhancing customer data, providing customer service, assessing your interest in our products and services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information and may be located wherever Seaforde Limited operates.
It may be necessary — by law, legal process, litigation and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence — for Seaforde Limited to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.
We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a re-organisation, merger or sale, we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.
Protection of Personal Information
Seaforde Limited takes precautions — including administrative, technical and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft and misuse, as well as against unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
Integrity and Retention of Personal Information
Access to Personal Information
We make good faith efforts to provide you with access so you can request that we correct the data if it is inaccurate or delete the data if Seaforde Limited is not required to retain it by law or for legitimate business purposes. We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardise the privacy of others, are extremely impractical or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. Access, correction or deletion requests can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org .
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13, except as required by law (e.g. passport details). If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child under 13, other than as required by law, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.
Third-Party Sites and Services
Seaforde Limited websites, products, applications and services may contain links to third-party websites, products and services. Our products and services may also use or offer products or services from third parties. Information collected by third parties, which may include such things as location data or contact details, is governed by their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of those third parties.
Our Commitment to Your Privacy
To make sure your personal information is secure, we communicate our privacy and security guidelines to Seaforde Limited employees and strictly enforce privacy safeguards within the company.
