Privacy policy

The Save Our Seas Foundation (SOSF) is committed to protecting your privacy.

This document aims to help you understand what information we might collect about you and how we use it. This Privacy Policy applies to all Save Our Seas Foundation sites – that is all sites within the domain (SOSF websites). 

The Save Our Seas Foundation is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. We collect information from our users at several different points on our website.

We use IP addresses to track website visits, analyze trends, administer the site, and gather demographic information for analysis. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Our site uses cookies. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Cookies enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.

Please note that during your visits to SOSF websites you may notice some cookies that are not related to the Save Our Seas Foundation. When you visit a page with content embedded from, for example, Vimeo or Twitter, you may be presented with cookies from these websites. Disabling these cookies may interfere with, or break, the functionality offered by these third parties.

We have appropriate security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from.

Whenever you post content to the Save Our Seas Foundation site, such as a comment on a blog post, this content will become part of the website. In some instances, the Save Our Seas Foundation will need to moderate and/or approve submitted content before it becomes visible on our website.

If you wish to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. This allows the Save Our Seas Foundation to keep updated about our work. You can opt out of receiving the newsletter by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any newsletter.

The Save Our Seas Foundation will keep your information confidential except where disclosure is required or permitted by law (for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies) or as described in the section “Offensive or Inappropriate Content” below.

Occasionally, the Save Our Seas Foundation may use third parties to process your information on our behalf. We require that these third parties do not use your personal information for their own business purposes, unless you have explicitly consented to the use of your personal information in this way.

If you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on the Save Our Seas Foundation website, we may use your personal information to stop such activity.

Where the Save Our Seas Foundation reasonably believes that you are or may be in breach of any applicable laws (e.g. because content you have posted may be defamatory), we may use your personal information to inform relevant third parties such as your employer, school email/internet provider or law enforcement agencies.

If we change our Privacy Policy, this page will be updated so our users may remain aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
