What Information We Collect

Our system occasionally collects information about origin and site navigation of website visitors. To collect this data, the site may use "session cookies".  A "session cookie" is stored in temporary memory and is not retained after the browser is closed. This information is used only to help us continually modify the site based on use patterns and is not linked to any personal identifying information. We do not collect any identifying or personal data on site users unless that information is submitted as part of a request for service or information, such as requesting a vessel safety check.

Persistent Cookies

Certain optional (user selected) features of this site require cookies that will remain on the user's computer after the browser is closed. These establish preferences when the visitor returns. The use of persistent cookies is fully explained in the Preferences page. They are never set unless specifically authorized by the user. Such cookies are accessible only by this web site and only while the user is actively viewing pages. They may be disabled at any time via the Preferences page.

Who Is Collecting The Information

The only people using aggregate website access information are Auxiliary staff, in particular, our web team. If a visitor submits additional identifying information (as noted above), that information is available only to the Auxiliary staff who will be involved in implementing the requested activity.

How We Will Use The Information

Information about website use patterns will be utilized by the web team and other appropriate Auxiliary staff to modify and enhance the website. Identifying individual information (such as name, e-mail, and address) will be used only as requested by the visitor.

With Whom Will The Information Be Shared

Our organization does not sell, share or release any information about website users to any third parties, unless requested to do so by that user. Personal information about individual website users, as submitted as part of a service or information request, will not be shared for other than the stated purpose in any way without specific consent from the user. However, we may disclose information when legally compelled to do so.

Consumer Choices

Personal information about website users is collected only as part of a request for service. If information is required in order to provide a service, the website user will be informed as to which information in optional and which is essential for receipt of the service. Users have the option of asking that personal information be removed from our site once the service has been completed. Users also have the choice of ending any subscription or request for information by submitting a cancellation request to the webmaster via email.

If users do not wish to have any "cookies" attached to their browser, they may disable cookies through their browser or Internet service company.

Email Security

Email links are provided as a means to contact Auxiliary members for additional information or to make comments. The sender's return email address will be used to respond to comments and questions and may be made available to other members of the Auxiliary for the same purpose. Because normal e-mail is not encrypted, the possibility exists that unauthorized individuals may intercept e-mail messages. We are not responsible for privacy of e-mail messages except those stored in our system.
