Privacy Policy

BuyOwner Boat, Inc. respects the privacy needs and concerns of our customers. This Privacy Policy is to inform you about what kinds of information we collect about you, how we use it, with whom it is shared and the choices you have regarding our use of that information. By accessing or using this Website, you consent to our Privacy Policy. BuyOwner Boat, Inc. may modify this Privacy Policy at any time without notice, effective upon its posting to its Website. Your continued use of the Website constitutes your acceptance to this Privacy Policy and any updates. You agree to review this Privacy Policy regularly so that you understand our current Privacy Policy. We will not obtain personally identifying information about you except as described in this Privacy Policy or if you otherwise choose to provide such information to us voluntarily, whether on line, through mail order or other promotional activities. Although this Privacy Policy may seem long, it explains the details of our data collection and use of your information because we believe you should know as much as possible about our practices to make informed decisions. Because our customers are of vital importance to us, we do not participate in bulk email solicitations which you have not consented to receiving (i.e., "spam").

Collection of Your Information

Instances where personally identifiable information may be gathered include purchases made on our website, by phone, or in person at promotional events. Ex: (boat shows) The types of personally identifying information we collect may include contact information (e.g., name, postal address, email address and phone number), credit card and ID verification information (such as credit card number and driver's license number, where permitted by applicable law), information about your boat or boating preferences, as well as other relevant information.

Use of Your Information

We know that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. We use the personally identifiable information you provide to respond to any of your questions about our products and services, and for a variety of marketing and promotional purposes. Also, we employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include website hosting and development, fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, and processing credit card payments. They have access to personal information needed only to perform their functions. We require companies with whom we contract for outsourced services to keep data received from us confidential and to use it only for the purposes indicated.

We may, from time to time, supplement the information we collect with outside records to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor our content to you, and to offer you opportunities to purchase products or services that we believe may be of interest to you. In addition, we may, from time to time, share your information with other companies with whom we have strategic or marketing relationships, or with other companies and marketers whose products or services may be of interest to you. Some of these parties may use your personal information for their own marketing purposes or to send you information regarding products and services that may be of interest to you. Please note, however, that once you provide your personally identifiable information directly to such party (for example, by enrolling in their membership organization or by purchasing product or services directly from them), how they collect and use your information would be controlled by the terms of their privacy policy and BuyOwner Boat, Inc. will have no control over their use of your information.

Also, we may release personally identifying information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law or legal process (e.g., in response to a court order, subpoena or a law enforcement agency's request) or to protect the rights or property of BuyOwner Boat, Inc., buyownerboat.com, our users, our marketing partners or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. In addition, in the event that all or substantially all of BuyOwner Boat, Inc.'s stock and/or assets are transferred or sold to another entity, we may transfer personally identifiable information to the acquiring entity.

Opt Out

Please note that this Privacy Policy applies both to our collection and use of your personally identifiable information on-line (i.e., through our website) as well as offline (for example, mail order catalog or other promotional activities), but the methods for opting out of receiving promotional materials from us differs for e- mail and postal mailings. If you do not wish to receive special offers and promotional information email from us, please let us know by checking the "no email" preference box when you complete the on-line registration forms. You may also opt out of this promotional email list after you have registered by returning to the account page. We will take all reasonable efforts to delete your personal information from our database as soon as reasonably possible. Please note that even if you chose to opt out of marketing communications, we will continue to send you important service-related communications (e.g., order confirmation or product safety information). However, these are not promotional in nature. Therefore, you should not expect that all of your personally identifiable information will be completely removed from our databases in response to your requests.

Protection of Children's Personal Information

BuyOwner Boat, Inc. is concerned about protecting the safety and privacy of children. We do not knowingly or specifically request or collect personally identifiable information from or about children and do not market specifically to children.
