The Cruising Insider is committed to protecting your privacy and works hard to provide a safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the The Cruising Insider Website and governs data collection and usage. By using The Cruising Insider Website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Collection of your Personal Information

The Cruising Insider Website, hereafter referred to as the "website" or "The Cruising Insider," collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. The Cruising Insider also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your preferences, interests and favorites.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by The Cruising Insider. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by The Cruising Insider for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of The Cruising Insider Website.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through The Cruising Insider public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others.

The Cruising Insider encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from The Cruising Insider, so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. The Cruising Insider is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on other websites.

Use of your Personal Information

The Cruising Insider collects and uses your personal information to operate The Cruising Insider Website and deliver the services you have requested. The Cruising Insider also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from The Cruising Insider and its affiliates. The Cruising Insider may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

The Cruising Insider does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. The Cruising Insider may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, The Cruising Insider may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to The Cruising Insider, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

The Cruising Insider does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

The Cruising Insider keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within our site, in order to determine which services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within The Cruising Insider to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

The Cruising Insider will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on The Cruising Insider or the website; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of The Cruising Insider; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of The Cruising Insider, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The Cruising Insider website use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize The Cruising Insider web pages, or register with The Cruising Insider website or services, a cookie helps The Cruising Insider to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same The Cruising Insider web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use The Cruising Insider features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of The Cruising Insider Website.

This website may also make use of interest-based advertising, such as Google's DoubleClick cookie. Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.


Security of your Personal Information

The Cruising Insider secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. The Cruising Insider secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

The Cruising Insider will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. The Cruising Insider encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how The Cruising Insider is protecting your information.
