Any reference within this Privacy Policy to ‘we’ or ‘us’ or ‘Yacht Training’ or ‘our’ is a reference to Yacht Training Ltd.  By using this site, you agree to this Privacy Policy of Yacht Training (‘the web site’). The Privacy Policy relates to the collection and use of personal information you may supply to us through your use of Yacht Training. We reserve the right, to change or delete sections of this Privacy Policy at any time. This Privacy Policy is in addition to any other terms of use applicable to the Yacht Training web site.  We recognise the importance of protecting the privacy of information collected about visitors and customers who choose to come to our website, in particular any personal information that is capable of identifying an individual.  This Privacy Policy may change from time to time. Any changes will be updated to this Privacy Policy page and it is the customer’s responsibility to keep up to date with the most current version.  If you disagree with any part of the policy then you should contact us immediately by email and cease using the website until the issue is resolved.  We do not make any representations about third party websites that may be linked to Yacht Training.


We only collect personal information about visitors to our site or our customers when it is knowingly submitted by those individuals. For example, we will need to collect information such as your telephone numbers, address, bank account, credit card details etc in order to process payments or provide fee funding and loan services to you. It is our intention that this Privacy Policy will protect your personal information from being dealt with in any way that is inconsistent with applicable privacy laws in New Zealand.  We will not use the personal information we obtain from you in connection with one purpose for any other purpose without your consent, unless that other use is authorised by the New Zealand Privacy Act 1993.  We will not keep your personal information longer than is required for the purposes for which the information may be lawfully used.  We do not intentionally collect personal information from children.  We do not disclose your personal information to any other party in a form that would identify you, except if authorised or required by law.


Personal information that visitors or customers enter into our site is used only for the purpose for which it has been entered or for related secondary purposes (e.g. for us to be able to contact you). The information will not be used for any third party marketing and will not be disclosed to anyone else without us first getting your consent. Copies of all information that you submit to YachtShare may also be stored in a backup and only be used for record-keeping and back-up restoration purposes only.


A cookie is a small piece of information held in a text file that is passed to a user’s web browser when they access a website. The cookie is usually stored on the user’s hard drive.

Yacht Training may use cookies to enhance the user’s experience when using the Yacht Training website.  If a customer does not want information collected in cookies the customer should disable cookies in their internet browser.


It may be necessary to disclose personal information in certain situations where we have reason to believe that doing so is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against anyone who we believe is infringing our intellectual property rights or illegally using (including for the purposes of money laundering or terrorism purposes) the Yacht Training website. We may also disclose information when we believe in good faith that we would be required to do so under New Zealand law.  We may engage third parties to provide some of the Yacht Training services to you. Where we do this we may need to disclose your personal information to those third parties in order to provide you with these services.


Yacht Training uses a number of third party service providers and Yacht Training has links to a number of third party websites. These third parties are not under our control and Yacht Training cannot accept any responsibility for the actions or conduct of those third parties.
