Privacy Policy Statement

Effective 25th May 2018

The Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (known as “SFP” or “we”) is committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy applies to personal and other information collected when you use www.sustainablefish.org, www.oceandisclosureproject.org, and any other SFP online site or service that links or refers to it (collectively, the “Services”).

Information that we collect

Under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Foundation is a Data Controller.

We may collect personal information about our users in various ways. For example, we may collect information that you provide to us, information that we collect through your use of the Services, and information that we collect from publicly available sources or third parties.

How we use information

We use information that we collect for the following purposes:

SFP processes information on our servers in the United States of America and in other countries. In some cases, we process information on a server outside your own country. By using the Services, you consent to the collection, international transfer, storage, and processing of your information as described herein.

Information sharing

The following provides information about entities with which we may share information. Our practices vary depending on the type of information.

Links to third-party sites

This Privacy Policy applies to our Services only. Our Services may link to third-party websites and services that are outside our control. We are not responsible for the security or privacy of any information collected by other websites or other services. You should exercise caution and review the privacy statements applicable to the third-party websites and services you use.

Information security

We have in place commercially reasonable security measures to protect the information we collect online. However, as effective as these measures may be, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of systems where we store personal data, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.

Accessing and updating personal information

When you use our Services, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes) or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.

Requests to access your personal information or deletion from our systems should be sent to data.protection@sustainablefish.org. Please note, deletion from our systems may render access impossible.

Other important information

Changes to this Privacy Policy

Please note that this Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will provide you with thirty (30) days’ written notice prior to implementing any material modification, as determined by SFP in its sole discretion. If you continue to use the Services after changes are posted you will be deemed to have accepted the changes.

Online tracking

We may use cookies and similar technologies to facilitate administration and navigation of the Services, to better understand and improve our Services, and to provide you with a customized online experience.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you may be able to control cookies using your browser controls. However, some Services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.
