You can browse the Website without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. Once you give us your personal information, you are not anonymous to us. If you choose to provide us with personal information, you consent to the transfer and storage of that information to our servers located in the United States or elsewhere. We may collect and store any personal information you may share with us, like:
- Email address, password, physical contact information;
- Transactional information based on your activities on the website;
- Correspondence through the website to us or a Member;
- Computer sign-on data, statistics on page views, traffic to and from the website, and ad data;
- Other information, including IP address and standard web log information, and supplemental information from third parties;
- Usage statistics.
We don’t sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your explicit consent. We do, however, use third-parties for website functionality, analytics, and social sharing. If you are a registered user of Facebook or Twitter, for example, our site enables your use of certain Facebook and Twitter sharing features. Social network widgets, however, may collect your social network “browser” cookies, regardless of whether you use social sharing widgets. If you are a member of social networks, you should consult the respective social networks’ privacy disclosures for more information about how they collect and share information. We also use other sharing widgets like AddThis, which may collect and share data with interest-based advertisers.
Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized boat travel experience. We also use the information we receive about you in connection with the services of this website, other users, members, and advertisers that purchase ads on this site. For example, we may use the information we receive from you to:
- Provide the services and customer support you request;
- Resolve disputes, collect fees, and troubleshoot problems;
- Prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities, and enforce the Terms;
- Customize, measure, and improve our services and the websites’ content and layout;
- Tell you about targeted marketing, service updates, and promotional offers based on your communication preferences; and compare information for accuracy, and verify it with third parties.
Our Disclosure of Your Information
We may disclose personal information to respond to legal requirements, enforce our policies, respond to claims that a listing or other content violates the rights of others, or protect anyone’s rights, property, or safety. We may also share your personal information with:
- Members of our corporate family to help detect and prevent potentially illegal acts and provide joint services;
- Members who have a SocialFloats Member Account;
- Service providers under contract who help with our business operations;
- Law enforcement or other governmental officials, in response to a verified request relating to a criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity (In such events, we will disclose name, city, state, telephone number, email address, User ID history, fraud complaints, and transaction history); and
- Other business entities, should we plan to merge with or be acquired by that business entity;
- Third parties in response to a subpoena or other valid legal process in the United States ordering the disclosure of such information.
Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy, we will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement, other government officials, or other third parties without a subpoena, court order or substantially similar legal procedure, except when we believe in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss or to report suspected illegal activity.

Accessing, Reviewing and Changing your Personal Information
You can see, review and change most of your personal information or delete your account by logging into the website at: www.SocialFloats.com. Generally, we will not manually modify your personal information because it is very difficult to verify your identity remotely. You must promptly update your personal information if it changes or is inaccurate. Upon your request, we will close your account and remove your personal information as soon as reasonably possible, based on your account activity and in accordance with applicable law. We do retain personal information from closed accounts in order to comply with law, prevent fraud, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce the Terms, and take other actions otherwise permitted by law.
We want you to feel confident about using the Website to make boat rental arrangements, and we are committed to protecting the information we collect. While no website or online service can guarantee security, including ours, we have implemented appropriate administrative, technical, and physical security procedures to help protect the personal information you provide to us. We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure.
