At Planet Cruise we are committed to protecting the personal information that you share with us through the Internet.

This statement sets forth our privacy policy regarding information you provide to us through the use of our Web site. This statement also provides you with information on how to prevent your personal information from being collected or shared when you visit our web site, respond to our web-based promotions or send us an e-mail.

In general, you can visit any part of the Planet Cruise website without telling us who you are, or revealing personal details. In certain circumstances we may ask you to provide personal information, voluntarily, e.g. when you join our mailing lists. We may use this information to contact you. However, we will not pass on this information to third parties without your prior permission.

THE INFORMATION WE GATHER

The Information We Gather

We collect information about you through two principal means: through technology (for example IP addresses and cookies) and through your voluntary submission of information.

NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

Non-personally Identifiable Information

Using technology, our sites can collect information about the type of browser you are using, your operating system and your IP address information using technology. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer and is recognised by web technology whenever you are surfing the Internet. None of this information is considered personally identifiable information. As technology evolves, additional methods of information gathering may be used such as "pixel tags" (also known as "web beacons" and "clear gifs").

We also use cookies and other technologies to collect non-personally identifiable information for a variety of purposes, such as to improve the design, content and navigation of our website and to enable us to provide a more personalised experience when you browse the Internet. Most industry-standard web browsers have an option that allows you to turn off all cookies or have your computer inform you each time that a request to place a cookie is being made. If you turn cookies off (or refuse to accept a request to place a cookie), you may not have access to some features on our web sites and some of our services.

Planet Cruise is not liable for information that is inaccurate due to technical defects in software used on our web sites, whether induced by our systems or by software provided by third parties.

PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

Personally Identifiable Information

To participate in or use some of the activities available on our sites (such as entering a contest or contacting us) you may be required to provide certain personally identifiable information (such as your name and e-mail address).

When corresponding with you via e-mail, we may use a variety of technologies, such as "clear gifs" or "web beacons", to let us know, among other things, whether you received and opened our e-mail. The clear gif included in the e-mail may establish a cookie on your system that further allows us to tailor information to fit your personal interests.

Planet Cruise will not trade, sell or share such personally identifiable information for use by any third parties unless we have informed you, been authorised by you or are required by law to do so. The term "third parties" does not include any subsidiaries or affiliates of Planet Cruise, service providers or vendors acting on Planet Cruise's behalf or the purchaser of substantially all of the assets of Planet Cruise or a subsidiary or affiliate of Planet Cruise. Our policy is to require that third parties keep that information confidential. We reserve the right to disclose personally identifiable information, without notice, if we believe that such action is necessary to defend and protect the rights or property of Planet Cruise and its family of web sites or to protect the personal safety of users of Planet Cruise, its web sites or the public.
