WHAT IS OUR LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
1. Performance of a Contract
In circumstances where you agree to enter into a contract or agreement with us in order for us to provide you with a product or service, then we may need to collect and use your personal information in order to carry out that agreement or contract. Instances in which this is the case are, for example, annual, seasonal and visitor berthing in the marina; commercial berthing and activity such as loading or landings; leasing of property, storage or miscellaneous services.
2. Legitimate Interests
In order to run our business and meet the needs of our customers, it is in our legitimate interest to keep those customers informed. To do so, we may use your personal data. For example, necessary notifications regarding your vessel, safety or environmental issues, harbour developments, as well as news, events and special offers.
While the former examples are a necessity, you have the right to refuse communications on the latter. You can update your preferences or opt out of marketing communications (news, events, special offers etc) at any time via the “unsubscribe” or “manage my prefernces” links at the bottom of such correspondence or alternatively, by contacting us directly by telephone or email (details above).
In other instances, we may collect and process personal data with your consent to do so. We will request such consent at the time of data collection, clearly highlighting the purpose for doing so. Of course, you have the right to refuse, and may opt out again at any time by using the “unsubscribe” or “manage my prefernces” links at the bottom of such correspondence or alternatively, by contacting us directly by telephone or email (details above).

We require your personal data as it is a contractual requirement.

We also collect such information in order to tailor our special offers and marketing activities to specific demographics. However, we will only contact you with news, events and special offers if you have opted in to receive such marketing correspondence and you may change or opt out again at any time by using the “unsubscribe” or “manage my preferences” links at the bottom of such correspondence or alternatively, by contacting us directly by telephone or email (details above).
Our website is not intended for children and we do not knowingly collect data relating to children.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purpose for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
Details of retention periods for different aspects of your personal data are available in our retention policy which you can request from us by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS

- The right to request that we correct any personal data if it is found to be inaccurate or out of date;
- The right to request your personal data is erased where it is no longer necessary to retain such data;
- The right to withdraw your consent to the processing at any time, where consent was the lawful basis for processing your data;
- The right to request that we provide you with your personal data and where possible, to transmit that data directly to another data controller, (known as the right to data portability), where applicable 9i.e. where our processing is based on consent or is necessary for the performance of our contract with you or where we process your data by automated means);
- The right, where there is a dispute in relation to the accuracy or processing of your personal data, to request a restriction is placed on further processing;

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable admin fee if your request is unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complicated or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
