You have the control to change the following:

Accessing and changing your information

You can access and modify any information and preferences that we hold relating to you. Please note that we reserve the right to charge a fee of €25 to cover costs incurred by us in providing you with the information.

Controlling the use of cookies

Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject first- and third-party cookies. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of our Services.

Controlling advertising and analytics

Some analytics providers we partner with may provide specific opt-out mechanisms and we may provide, as needed and as available, additional tools and third-party services that allow you to better understand cookies and how you can opt-out. For example, you may manage the use and collection of certain information by Google Analytics here.

Do not track

Most modern web browsers give you the option to send a Do Not Track signal to the websites you visit, indicating that you do not wish to be tracked. However, there is no accepted standard for how a website should respond to this signal, and we do not take any action in response to this signal. Instead, in addition to publicly available third-party tools, we offer you the choices described in this policy to manage the collection and use of information about you.

Controlling promotional communications

You may opt out of receiving some or all categories of promotional communications from us by following the instructions in those communications or by updating your email options in your account preferences by contacting us. If you opt out of promotional communications, we may still send you non-promotional communications, such as information about your account or your use of the Services.

Use of images

You can opt out of being included in promotional material. Please contact us prior to your sailing holiday with details of the guests that do not consent to have their images taken.

Information security

We take measures to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. For example, we use HTTPS while information is being transmitted. We also enforce technical and administrative access controls to limit which of our employees have access to non-public personal information.

Data retention

We store the information we collect for as long as it is necessary for the purpose(s) for which we originally collected it. We may retain certain information for legitimate business purposes or as required by law.

International data transfers

In operating our website, it may be necessary to transfer information on servers and equipment to other countries outside of the EU depending on a variety of factors, including the locations of our users and service providers. By accessing or using the Services or otherwise providing information to us, you consent to the processing, transfer and storage of information in and to the EU and other countries, where you may not have the same rights as you do under local law.
