Policy last update: 25.05.2018
By using the Connected Boat Services, you entrust us with personal information. In order for us to provide these services we entrust this information to our third party partners, who exist in our service environment, with whom we work directly or indirectly, primarily to provide you with the highest level of service and in order to perform marketing activities.
Rights related to the personal data processing
You have the right to request that an administrator accesses your personal data, including obtaining a copy of the data, correcting it, removing it (in certain situations) or processing restrictions. You have the right to transfer the data and the right to file a complaint with a body dealing with personal data protection. These rights also apply if the data is processed correctly by the administrator and does not affect the lawfulness of the processing, which was made on the basis of consent before its withdrawal.

The legal grounds for lawful processing of personal data:
||Objectives of data processing
||Performance of a contract on the Connected Boat – User (these agreements are usually the regulations that the User accepts before using the given Service), including matching the Services to the needs of Users, analysing and improving the Services and ensuring the security of the Services
||Article 6(1)(b) GDPR – necessary for the performance of a contract to which the User is a party
||until the agreement expires between you and Connected Boat, with the provision that sometimes such data may be processed even after the expiration of this contract, but only if it is permitted or required under applicable law, e.g. processing for statistical purposes, billing or to pursue claims

||Article 6(1)(a) GDPR – consent of the data subject

Forwarding of personal information
Connected Boat transfers personal data to trusted partners – entities processing personal data at the request of the administrator, including suppliers of IT services and solutions (e.g. data centres, hosts, backup services, database services, maps and map tools).
Service providers only have access to the minimum data that is necessary to carry out their tasks. Your data may in certain cases be transferred to recipients in countries outside the European Economic Area, if this is necessary to provide Services to you or if it is so required on a valid legal basis.
The user may publish his content on external websites (e.g. sharing a trip route on social media) only after providing details of this and receiving authorisation to do so from Connected Boat.
Security of your personal data
We process information collected from you in accordance with EU data protection law. All employees are obliged to be aware of and informed about the confidential nature of data and of their obligations related to the protection of privacy. The transfer of personal data, as well as the authorisation process (login and authentication) to our services is carried out using the secure SSL protocol, which significantly increases the protection of data transmission to the Internet.
The right to access, correct and erase personal data
Connected Boat provides each user with a profile page available after authorisation. This page allows you to view, modify and delete information about the devices that are connected to your account. In the event that the user deems such a solution insufficient, he may contact ConnectedBoat by e-mail email@example.com
Freedom of choice
Providing personal data is voluntary, but failure to provide data marked as essential will mean that it is impossible for Connected Boat to provide Services to you.
Information about cookies
Cookies are IT data, in particular text files, which are stored on the terminal equipment of the User of Connected Boat websites and applications. Cookies usually contain the domain name of the website they come from, the time they are stored on the end device and a unique ID number.
Cookie files are not used to identify the user or share their identity, only to improve the use of our services.
- provision of services;
- customising the content of websites and applications to the User’s preferences and optimizing the use of websites; e.g. cookies allow in particular the identification of the User’s device and enables the proper display of our website tailored to a User’s individual needs;
- creating statistics that help to understand how Users interact with our websites and applications, which enables us to continually improve their structure and content;
- maintaining the User’s session (after logging in), so that the User does not have to repeat their log-in details on every subpage of the given website and application;
Types of cookies that we use
Due to the lifetime of cookies and other similar technologies, we use two basic types of these files:
- sessional – temporary files stored on the User’s device until logging out, leaving the website and application or closing the software (web browser);
- permanent – stored in the User’s device for the time specified in the cookie file parameters or until they are deleted by the User.
Due to the purpose of cookies and other similar technologies, we use the following types:
- services and applications necessary to operate – enabling the use of our services, e.g. authentication cookies used for services requiring authentication;
- files used to ensure security, e.g. used to detect fraud in the field of authentication;
- performance – enabling the collection of information on the use of websites and applications;
- functional – allowing “remembering” of the settings selected by the User and personalizing the User’s interface, e.g. in the scope of the selected language or region of the User’s origin, font size, the appearance of the website and applications, etc.;
- statistical – used for counting statistics on websites and applications.
For the convenience of using our services, we use Local Storage (LS) technology, similar to the principle of operation for cookies, but with slightly different properties. LS is a separate part of browser memory used to store data saved by websites. Access to it can only be obtained from a web page operating on the same website from which the data was saved, but unlike cookies, they are not sent by the browser every time you refer to the server. The data in LS is permanently stored by the browser and is not deleted when the browser is closed or at the end of a validity period. We emphasise that we do not use this technology to track or identify Users, and it is only for convenience and to provide services at the highest level.
