Uses of your information

We use personal information for operational, legal and other reasons such as:

This entails booking your flights, accommodations/yacht charter, organizing tours, transportation, and car hire and providing you with your tickets and providing you with any special assistance you require.

What about our marketing practices?

When will we get in touch with you?

One of the other reasons we sometimes collect your information is so that we can form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. With this information, we decide which products, services, and offers may be relevant for you and what marketing may interest you.

We keep you up to date with our latest offers, partnerships, sales, promotions, competitions (or those of our partners such as other members of the Travelopia group) that we think might be of interest/relevance to you.

We will only contact you in this way if:

• You have signed up to receive marketing communications from us or one of the other Nautical Adventures Belize companies and have not later told us that you don’t want to hear from us.
• You have made a booking with us and have not told us that you do not want to hear from us.

What if you don’t want to receive marketing?

We never want to send our marketing to someone who isn’t interested in receiving this content. If you have decided that you no longer wish to hear from us, you can unsubscribe from marketing by clicking on the ‘unsubscribe’ link included in all of our emails or by contacting us

Third parties and marketing

We do not pass your information to other parties for marketing purposes unless you agree to us doing so. We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any company outside the Nautical Adventures Belize group of companies for marketing purposes.

Sometimes we may use 3rd parties to send the communication to you on our behalf. We use third-party providers to deliver our brochures and monthly e-newsletters respectively. However, these companies do not have the right to send marketing to you for their own purposes.

The marketing material we send to you may occasionally also include information about selected business partners who provide services closely related to our own product.

When do we share your personal data?

In order to provide you with the services, we may share your personal information with third parties such as:

• Third-party suppliers we work with to provide your booking and our other services to you. We share your information with parties such as travel agents, booking agents, airlines, hotels, tour operators, transport companies, excursion providers, airport authorities, insurance companies, car hire companies, ground handling agencies, and cruise companies.
• Other suppliers that we work with in connection with our business. We share your information with third-party suppliers that we use to provide services in connection with the experiences we offer to you. This might include marketing agencies and/or companies that run our marketing campaigns, IT developers, service providers and hosting providers, third parties that manage promotions or competitions, third party software companies, ground agents, site analytics providers, medical service providers, and credit card screening companies.
• Airports, immigration/border control, and/or other government authorities. Sometimes we have to provide “Advance Passenger Information” about you to border or immigration authorities of the country of your travel destination. This would usually be the basic information contained in your passport, but the laws of certain countries may require additional information. We will provide this information when we are required to do so.
• Third parties/other Nautical Adventures Belize companies for marketing. Your personal data may be processed on our behalf by our trusted third-party suppliers to assist and help us in consumer classification, which enables more accurate and relevant marketing. We also may share your information with third parties for marketing purposes. We may share personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information internally with our sister-brand. We do this in order to enhance your customer experience.
• Credit references and fraud prevention agencies.
• Courts or advisors. We may have to share your information with other third parties (such as legal, accountants or other advisors, regulatory authorities, courts, and government agencies) to enable us to enforce our legal rights or to protect the rights, property or safety of our employees or where such disclosure may be permitted or required by law.
• Third parties to whom we may choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets. Alternatively, we may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them. If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal data in accordance with the new owner’s privacy policies, which may vary from this privacy policy.

We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

The choices we offer related to your information and your responsibilities based on those choices.

People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. For example, if you do not wish for us to collect any information about you, you can simply not utilize our Sites or otherwise supply personal information to us. You also may accept or reject cookies for our Site as described above. It's important to remember that the Site may not function properly if your cookies are disabled, however. For example, we may not remember your location preferences. For more information on how we use cookies and other tracking technologies, please read the cookie discussion above. You also may opt-out of receiving certain promotional or marketing communications from us at any time by using the unsubscribe link in the e-mail communications we send or by contacting us.

Data security

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used, or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors, and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

How long do we keep your data?

We will keep your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose for which we collected it and for the purpose of satisfying any legal accounting or reporting requirements and our internal operations.

In some circumstances, we may anonymize your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
