Privacy Policy (French Version: GDPR - Français)

This Policy explains when and why we collect personal information about people, how we use it and how we keep it secure. By using our website, you're agreeing to be bound by this Policy.
If you have any questions regarding this Policy and our privacy practices you can send an email to contact@ms-yachts.com.


Who are we?
We're MS YACHTS, a yachting company based in Cannes. Specialized in yacht charter, brokerage and yacht event since 1981.

How do we collect information from you?
We obtain information about you when you use our website, for example, when you contact us about purchase, charter or management or if you register to receive one of our newsletters.

What type of information is collected from you?
The personal information we collect might include your name, address, email address, IP address, and information regarding what pages are accessed and when.












How is your information used?
We may use your information to:
·       process orders that you have submitted;
·       to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into by you and us;
·       seek your views or comments on the services we provide;
·       notify you of changes to our services;
·       send you communications which you have requested and that may be of interest to you
·       These may include information about events, offers, information, campaigns, activities, promotions
We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis. We are legally required to hold some types of information to fulfil our statutory obligations. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with us.

Legal basis for processing personal information
Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.
However, we will normally collect personal information from you only where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you, where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your rights, or where we have your consent to do so. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person.
If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contact with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information).
If we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), this interest will normally be to operate our platform and communicating with you as necessary to provide our services to you and for our legitimate commercial interest, for instance, when responding to your inqueries, improving our platform and undertaking marketing. We may have other legitimate interests and, if appropriate, we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.
If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please contact us using the contact details provided under the section titled “How you can access and update your information”.


Who has access to your information?
We will not sell or rent your information to third parties.
We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.
Third Party Service Providers working on our behalf: We may pass your information to our third-party service providers, agents subcontractors and other associated organizations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example to send you mailings). However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes. Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties beyond the MS YACHTS for them to use for their own direct marketing purposes, unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.


How you can access and update your information?
If you change email address, or any of the other information we hold is inaccurate or out of date, please email us at: contact@ms-yachts.com.
You have the right to ask for a copy of the information MS YACHTS hold about you.


Subject Access Request Policy
MS YACHTS is fully committed to respecting individuals’ right to access personal information held about them.

Subject access rights
Any individual who makes a valid subject access request is entitled to be:
·       told whether their personal data is being processed;
·       given a description of the personal data, reason for processing and whether it has been shared with any other organizations or persons;
·       given details of the source of the data (where this is available); and
·       given a copy of the information comprising the data.
Individuals are entitled only to their own personal data, and not to information relating to other people unless they are acting on behalf of that person. In these circumstances, written consent will be required.


Exempt information
MS YACHTS may not be able to release some information. Information which is exempt from a subject access request includes:
·       personal data where disclosure could prejudice the prevention or detection of crime
·       management forecasts/management planning
·       legal professional privilege (advice received from solicitors, for example)
·       personal data identifying another person (a third party) whose details cannot be disclosed without their permission


How to make a request?
In order to make a valid subject access request the following must be provided:
a clear written request by letter, email or fax
Proof of identification may be requested to ensure that the personal information requested is provided to the right person. Two forms of ID will be required. One must be name identification (e.g. Driving Licence, Passport or Birth Certificate) and the other a form of address identification dated in the last three months.
MS YACHTS will comply with requests for access to personal information as quickly as is practicable, but will ensure that the information is provided within 30 days, as required by GDPR. All subject access requests should be addressed to MS YACHTS, 57 La Croisette, 06600 Cannes, FRANCE.


Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information
When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it's treated securely. Any sensitive information (such as credit or debit card details) is encrypted and protected.
Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.


Profiling
We may analyze your personal information to create a profile of your interests and preferences so that we can contact you with information relevant to you. We may make use of additional information about you when it is available from external sources to help us do this effectively. We may also use your personal information to detect and reduce fraud and credit risk.

'Cookies' are small pieces of information sent by an organization to your computer and stored on your hard drive to allow that website to recognize you when you visit.

16 or Under

Transferring your information outside of Europe
As part of the services offered to you through this website, the information which you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Union (“EU”). By way of example, this may happen if any of our servers are from time to time located in a country outside of the EU. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK. By submitting your personal data, you're agreeing to this transfer, storing or processing. If we transfer your information outside of the EU in this way, we will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this Policy.
If you use our services while you are outside the EU, your information may be transferred outside the EU in order to provide you with those services.
