We also use pixel tags - tiny graphic images - to help us analyze
your online behavior and information about visitors to this Company
Website and our customers. Pixel tags also allow us to send you email
in a format you can read and let us know when you have opened an email
message from us.
We set a web beacon (a single-pixel invisible image) on web pages and some of our HTML-formatted emails. We may use web beacons for a number of purposes, such as to count visitors to our web pages, to monitor how our Site Visitors navigate our site, or to count how many newsletters or emails we sent were actually opened. Additionally, third parties that serve ads or content on this Web site or within our emails may use web beacons. We do not have control over web beacons used by these third parties.
Email to BoatXchange.com Staff:
When Site Visitors send an email to a department or staff person, the email may or may not be saved for future reference, and may or may not be forwarded to third parties.
Disclosure of Personal Information Collected:
WE collect personal information from you when you voluntarily submit it to us. When we request
personal information from you (which may include your name, address,
telephone number, email address, gender, year of birth, home address,
work address, landline phone number, cell phone number, credit card
number, and other personal preferences such as preferred brands, wish
list, other products and services purchased, income and education
level, interests, and instant messenger information).
Correcting/Updating Personal Information:
If a Site Visitor’s personal information changes, or if a user no longer desires our service, we have provided a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal data provided to us. If the Site Visitor has registered to view certain areas or use certain services, Site Visitor can edit or update their information at the “MyBoats” page on the site.

Links to Other Web Sites:
The Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites that we link to. We encourage Site Visitors to be alert when they leave the Web site and to review the privacy statements of each and every Web site that they visit before disclosing personal information.
When Site Visitors choose to use services requiring sensitive information (such as a credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of web browsers such as Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything reasonable in our power to protect user-information offline. All of our user-information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted to authorized users. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific task (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment.
Children's Use of Web site:
We do not knowingly acknowledge or accept orders, registrations or requests for any goods or services from persons under the age of 13. If it comes to our attention that a request has come from a person under the age of 13, we will not respond to such a request. Instead we will delete any information provided by that child.
Notification of Changes:
It is the Site Visitors responsibility to follow our privacy link, so Site Visitors are always aware of our current practices. There will always be a link to our privacy statement on our home page so that Site Visitors are always aware of our current information collection, maintenance and disclosure practices. Each update is noted with the last updated date. If our privacy practices change in way that would allow us to use non-public personal information in a manner not previously allowed by the terms of our privacy statement, Site Visitors will have an opportunity to choose whether to let us use their non-public personal information in the newly proposed manner.
