Automated technological interactions:
We may automatically collect statistical and technical data that can identify your device and city, but not you as an individual. We collect this personal data using server logs, cookies and data analysis technologies and services provided by third-party vendors, such as Google based outside the EU. For more information, see our cookie policy.
When you follow us on social media, the collection, processing, storage and use of your information is the responsibility of the social media provider, in accordance with the Privacy Policy of the respective social media platform. We can see the information you share through social media platforms, and our platform providers provide us with analytics tools that we use for marketing information and analysis purposes.
In the event that you charter a vessel, we may also automatically collect vessel coordinate tracking information, primarily for safety and emergency handling purposes, but also to improve the level of service you receive on a charter basis.

What Personal Data we collect

The amount and type of personal data we collect is at all times reasonable, necessary and kept to the minimum requirement imposed by the criterion of necessity for business and contractual performance, legal requirement or other legitimate interest per level of interaction.

How we use Personal Data

Apart from the specific purposes agreed with you, the information collected may be processed and used without your knowledge or consent only for legitimate purposes, when required or permitted by law.

The two main uses of your data serve:
a) functional/legal requirements and b) marketing.

Functional and legal requirements are:

  • to respond to an inquiry or other contact we have received from you;
  • to prepare a contract that we are about to enter into with you
  • to perform a contract we have entered into with you or provide you with a service or product you have ordered
  • to comply with legal, statutory or regulatory obligations
  • to serve or protect our legitimate interests (or the interests of third parties)

Regarding marketing:
MGA - Yacht will never sell or otherwise make available your personal information to any third party for advertising purposes. It uses your information to:

  • to improve the content and functionality of its websites
  • to conduct internal marketing analysis;
  • to share offers and news that we think will be of interest to you.

If you contacted us asking for information or requested goods or services from us or subscribed to our newsletters or publications or entered a competition or promotion we run or gave us your contact details during an exhibition or received goods or services from us and provided you have not opted out of such activity, then you may receive marketing communications from us.

Data storage and retention

Where we store your data
Your information is stored on our servers and in secured physical storage locations at our headquarters, as well as on servers owned by third parties, as further explained below. We implement various procedures and technologies, including security equipment (controlled access technology and CCTV monitoring) and software (firewall, antivirus, data encryption) to protect your information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.
Like almost every business in the world, we outsource core business services, such as email and data storage. We take great care to choose only reliable providers such as Google, Microsoft, Dropbox and Mailchimp, especially because they process and store your data on their own servers that are scattered in many countries and thus possibly located outside the country where you live or of the European Economic Area.
Despite taking all reasonable measures, it is understood that no business can completely eliminate information security risks.

How long we keep your data
Your personal data is retained for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collected it or as required by applicable laws and regulations (including tax and accounting requirements and the purposes of an investigation or dispute).
You can unsubscribe from our own marketing activities (eg newsletters and publications) at any time and we will promptly update your preferences so that you no longer receive marketing activities from us. However, your previously collected personal data (including any electronic messages you have exchanged) can and will be retained for legal and legitimate purposes (such as when that information relates to your previous order of products or services).

Who we share personal data with

Disclosure of your information is strictly limited to serving lawful purposes, and MGA - Yachting will never sell or otherwise make your information available to third parties for purposes other than operational or legal requirements.

Your personal data will be accessible by our staff through a structured system of authorization and access levels, as some of our staff may access it from remote locations (such as when they are in a marina). Our staff are trained in data protection so that they adequately understand the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data and take care to ensure that their handling practices minimize this risk (so, for example, printed charter documents you will go through the various stages required to obtain a sailing license always sealed in a company file and never left unattended or accessible by unauthorized persons).
Your personal data will be shared by us on the basis of what is necessary to be shared with service providers (e.g. IT service provider, analysis companies, pay per click (PPC) services and electronic Newsletters), business partners (e.g. fleet managers, charter brokers, yacht owners, yacht crews, charter operators), other suppliers (for as long as necessary to provide you with services or goods ordered through us) and relevant authorities, but the amount of your information that will be shared will always be limited to the minimum necessary for the purpose it is intended to serve, always taking into account the nature and sensitivity of the personal data.

Your rights to your personal information

Subject to applicable law, you have the right to request, under certain circumstances:

  • to have access to your personal data
  • to correct your personal data
  • delete your personal data
  • to object to the processing of your personal data
  • to restrict the processing of your personal data
  • transfer your personal data to another company
  • withdraw your consent - file a complaint

To receive more information or to exercise any of your rights, please contact us at [email protected]. Before we respond to your request, we may ask you to verify your identity and provide further details about your request, and we will make every effort to respond within a reasonable time. We do not normally charge a fee to access your personal data (or to process any other request relating to your personal data), but please note that a fee may be charged in cases of requests that are clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive.
