This privacy policy (this “Policy”) applies to information collected by Santa Catalina Island Company, its subsidiaries and/or divisions (collectively referred to as “SCICo,” “us,” “our” and/or “we”).

What information do we collect?

Non-personally Identifiable Information. As soon as you begin to use the Site we may begin to collect information about your visit such as: [duration of visit, type of web browser used, the operating system/platform you are using, your IP address, the web sites from which you linked to us and your CPU speed. We also may note whether and how you use the Site by recording site traffic patterns and “clickstreams.”] This information allows us to track what visitors to the Site are looking at most frequently so we can recognize and deliver more of the desired features, products and services, and continually improve the performance and functionality of the Site.
 
Personally Identifiable Information. Personally Identifiable Information is comprised of information like your name, home or business address, email address, telephone number, etc. and any other information that could be used to physically contact you or contact you online.
 
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PROVIDE US WITH YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION TO USE THE SITE AND WE ONLY COLLECT PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION FROM YOU WHEN YOU VOLUNTARILY PROVIDE IT TO US.
 
We will retain Personally Identifiable Information about you for as long as we believe it is necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Policy unless a longer retention period is required by applicable laws, rules and regulations.
 
How do we collect your Non-Personally Identifiable Information?
 
We may use a feature of your internet browser called a “cookie” (a small file automatically placed on your hard drive) to facilitate site navigation, internet sessions, and to maintain security. Cookies may be used to remember your personal settings, pre-fill forms for you, and to monitor your use of the Site to improve our services. We do not use cookies for any other purpose.
 
If you choose not to enable cookies on your browser, you may not be able to use some of the features or services offered on the Site. If cookies are enabled on your browser you should assume that Non-Personally Identifiable Information is constantly being gathered by every website that you visit, including the Site.
 
How do we use the information and who will have access to it?
 
We will not sell your Personally Identifiable Information to any unrelated third party. SCICo reserves the right to share Personally Identifiable Information with its subsidiaries and divisions in connection with marketing activities and maintenance and operation of the Site, or as may be legally required.
 
We may provide your Personally Identifiable Information to third parties that provide us with services to the extent necessary and appropriate, in our discretion, to perform certain marketing or Site related services (e.g., improving Site related services and features, direct mailings, etc.).
 
We may transfer any and all Personally Identifiable Information to third parties (whether affiliated or not), in the event of a sale or transfer of assets or other disposition of all or any portion of our business.
 
We may also use and/or disclose Personally Identifiable Information to any third party if we believe we are legally obligated to do so.
 
How is the information you collect secured?
 
We use commercially reasonable security measures to assist in protecting against the loss, misuse, and alteration of Personally Identifiable Information that is under our control. Unfortunately, no data storage system, or system of transmitting data over the Internet, can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee the security of our servers, the means by which Personally Identifiable Information is transmitted between your computer and our servers, or any Personally Identifiable Information provided to us or to any third party through or in connection with the Site.

If you choose to provide us with your email address, we may email you offers for products and services that may be of interest to you.
