Thank you for exploring the Global Fishing Watch Beta release. SkyTruth respects your privacy rights and recognizes the importance of protecting the information we collect about you. This policy statement tells you how we collect information from you and how we use it.
Personal Information Defined. SkyTruth considers “Personal Information” to include information that alone or when in combination with other information may be used to readily identify, contact or locate you, such as: name, address, email address or phone number. SkyTruth does not consider Personal Information to include information that has been anonymized so that it does not allow a third party to easily identify a specific individual.
You have voluntarily established a business relationship with SkyTruth. As part of that relationship, you have shared certain Personal Information, including your email address. As part of your participation in evaluating this Beta release, SkyTruth will only collect further Personal Information from you when you voluntarily:
- submit feedback and comments;
- complete surveys; or
- sign up for our newsletter.
When you submit Personal Information under these circumstances, you will receive a confirmation email that will give you the option of choosing not to receive further emails from us.
SkyTruth may also collect demographic information from visitors, such as geographic location or what platforms you own. This information helps us to improve our online offerings and allows us to tailor information to your preferences.
We track website usage data to improve our website. We collect user traffic patterns throughout our website using web logs, cookies and similar technologies. This information is collected to help improve website flow and usability. In addition, when we send emails to our members and supporters, we track information on clicks-through to our website, including IP addresses. This is done to gauge the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns and to discourage fraudulent use.
This website is not intended for children under 13 years of age and SkyTruth does not knowingly collect, maintain or use any Personal Information from children under 13 years of age.
