Privacy Policy

YOUR PRIVACY MATTERS TO US, TOO

Who we are

When we refer to `we`, `our`, `us` or `Skillinger`, we are referring to Skillinger Yachts Ltd and its subsidiaries, or any of them, as the context indicates.

Application of Our Privacy Policy

Our privacy policy applies to the information collected by us when you use any of the electronic communication methods (including but not limited to telephone, fax, email, and online contact forms) to contact us.

General Visit of Our Website When you visit our website, you do so without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information about yourself. While we do not collect personal information about visitors to our websites, we do use a software to collect information for the strict purpose of tracking activity on our websites. This allows us to better understand how many people use our websites and which pages and features are most popular. The information we collect and store is: 

  • The name of your Internet service provider
  • The web site that referred you to us (if any)
  • The date and time the pages were accessed
  • The page or pages you requested
  • The average time you spent on the site

Submitting Personal Information

There are instances where you may provide us with personal information* via our website. If you complete an enquiry form on our website or send us an email, you are transmitting the information that appears to you in the form or the message. This will typically include information like your name, mailing address, email address, the kind of request that you are making, and any other information necessary to fulfill your request. You never transmit personally identifying information that you do not enter yourself. This information cannot be collected unless you specifically elect to send it to us.

When you submit personally identifying information via one of our contact forms, that information is not identifiable before it is transmitted back to our websites. This effectively prevents anyone from intercepting and reading any personal information about you. Note that this encryption does not take place if you send us email, but only when you use your web browser with one of our sites forms. We will not accept responsibility for any unauthorised access or loss of personal information that is beyond our control. 

Use of Information The information that you provided is stored and used internally, strictly for the purpose of fulfilling your request, for contacting you directly, or for keeping track of commercial transactions, and will not be given or sold to any other organisation. We will not use your personal information for direct marketing purposes unless you expressly consent to this. Please be advised that if you give information to us, we may pass it to our subsidiaries outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Please be aware that some countries outside the EEA may not have the same level of data protection as in EEA, as such please do not fill in any form or provide any personal information if you do not wish your information to be passed on within our group.

How we use cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Users under 18 If you are under 18, please ensure that you have obtained your parental / guardian’s permission in advance whenever you provide personal information to us.
