We are registered under the Data Protection Act in the UK and adhere to the recommendations and principles therein. We do not supply your personal details to any marketing organisations under any circumstances whatsoever however we reserve the right to provide third parties with your personal details in the event of criminal or civil disputes in order to help prevent our privacy system being used as a shelter for suspicious or poor conduct.
1.2 We will attempt to stop any phone numbers provided with your advert from appearing on our web site but due to technical reasons this cannot be guaranteed in all cases, eg, for non UK phone numbers, “personal Numbers” etc. Your phone numbers may appear in printed form in a magazine along with your advert details, as a classified advert, so that people can make direct contact with you.

3. How We Use Information
3.1 When you supply information to us it is used in the following manner:
3.2 We need to know your email address and/or your phone number (although it is not our policy to display them on the internet) so that third parties can make contact with you through us. If you opt-in to receive information on marine events or other offers we will periodically send you emails on them.
3.3 Your marine items need to be described in text so that people know what you are selling and we are pleased to display pictures with your text (you must make sure you have a right to use the pictures you send or you could be in breach of copyright). We also ask for your postal address for security reasons although it is not mandatory. Your postal address is only used as a security / anti-fraud measure.
