This Privacy Policy describes how we, the Conservation Alliance for Seafood Solutions, collect, use, and share information we obtain about you through your use of our website located at seafoodsolutns.wpengine.com and any of our other websites, email messages, mobile applications, and other software containing a link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, our “Sites”).

By using any of our Sites, you are consenting to the collection, use, and sharing of your information in accordance with the practices described in this Privacy Policy. Please do not use our Sites if you do not agree with this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy does not govern our use of any information you provide to us when you call us, write to us, or communicate with us in any manner other than through the Sites.

1. Collection of Personal Information.

We collect personally identifiable information, such as first and last name, email address, organization, country, or industry sector (“Personal Information”), provided to us voluntarily through our Sites. For example, if you submit a sign-up form or request information through our Sites, we will collect your email address and other Personal Information. Please do not submit your Personal Information to us if you do not want us to collect, use and share it under the terms of this Privacy Policy.

2. Use of Personal Information.

We may use your Personal Information to provide you with information and services, to send you literature, newsletters, promotional materials, and notices (for example, in the form of email messages or mailings), and to otherwise respond to your requests. We may also use your Personal Information to enhance the operation of our Sites, improve our marketing and promotional efforts, statistically analyze use of our Sites (both on an individual basis and in the aggregate), update and enhance our records, maintain and improve our Sites, and for other purposes identified on portions of our Sites where information is collected. We also may use Personal Information to contact you regarding us or our Sites, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, and enforce and investigate your compliance with our agreements with you for any of our Sites and this Privacy Policy.

3. Sharing of Personal Information.

We share the Personal Information we collect among our affiliates, as well as with certain non-affiliated entities (“Third Parties”) as described below.

Third Party Service Providers.

From time to time, we may enter into relationships with third party service providers to help with certain aspects of our operations, which may require disclosure of your Personal Information to them. For example, we may use a third party to: (a) send information to you or otherwise communicate with you (via telephone, email, or mail) about us or our Sites, such as in our newsletters; (b) help us collect data relating to your use of our Sites; or (c) perform other work that we may need to outsource.

Legal Obligations.

We may disclose your Personal Information to law enforcement and other government authorities, and to other third parties when compelled to do so by any government authorities or as otherwise required or permitted by law, including in response to court orders and subpoenas. We may also disclose your Personal Information in the event that we have reason to believe someone is causing or threatening to cause injury to or interfere with our rights or property (including by enforcing and investigating your compliance with our agreements with you for any of our Sites and this Privacy Policy, the rights or property of others, the operation of our Sites, Site users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities), as well as to protect against fraud.

Business Transfers.

We may disclose your Personal Information in the event that we undergo (or are in discussions regarding) an acquisition, merger, sale, reorganization, consolidation, liquidation, or sale of assets that results in a third party’s acquisition of us or our assets, and your Personal Information may be among the transferred assets in such a transaction.

4. Automatically Collected Usage Information.

We may also collect information (using your IP address, as well as “cookies,” pixel tags, Flash cookies, and similar technologies) relating to the way you use and access our Sites, such as what pages you visit, what type of browser you are using, your IP address, your location, the information for which you search, the domain name of the website from which you came, and, for Sites that are mobile applications, what version of the application you are running and what tablet or mobile device you are using, which in certain cases could also be considered Personal Information. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the internet. A “cookie” is a small data file stored on your computer, not on our Sites, that enables our systems to recognize your browser and store information (such as log-in credentials); you are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but in that case, some portions of our Sites may not operate properly. A Flash cookie (also called a local shared object) is also stored on your computer, not on our Sites, and enables our systems to recognize your computer and store information about your activities and preferences; you can learn more about Flash cookies and how to manage them at www.adobe.com. A pixel tag (also called a web beacon) is an invisible tag on portions of our Sites that, when those portions are accessed, generates a notice with information about the visit, such as the IP address of your computer, the time and date of your visit, and the URL of the website page on which the pixel tag was viewed. We use the information we automatically collect to operate and improve our Sites. For example, we may use anonymous data to identify which Sites especially interest our users as a group, better understand the demographics of our users, or analyze other trends that can help us improve the quality of our Sites. We may share aggregated anonymous data concerning our users with partners or potential partners and others interested in how our Sites are used. By using our Sites, you consent to our automatic collection, use, and sharing of information as described above.

When third parties help us to collect data relating to your use of our Sites, they also may collect information automatically, using your IP address, or through cookies, pixel tags, Flash cookies, and similar technologies. These third parties collect this data to help us analyze usage of our Sites and better manage content on the Sites by giving us information about the usage and popularity of our content and features. Collection, use, and sharing of information by these third parties are governed by the privacy policies of those third parties, not this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of any third parties.
Third parties may collect Personal Information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you use our Sites. If your web browser transmits a “do not track” signal or implements some other mechanism to provide users with the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of an individual user’s Personal Information involving online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services, our Sites will not collect such Personal Information from you.

5. Security.

We have implemented reasonable measures to help protect your Personal Information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access or disclosure. However, no security system is foolproof and we cannot fully eliminate security risks with respect to your Personal Information. As a result, we cannot ensure that your Personal Information will not be disclosed to Third Parties. You should be mindful of these security limitations when you submit Personal Information to us. If applicable law imposes any non-disclaimable duty with respect to your Personal Information, you agree that the standard used to measure our compliance with that duty will be one of intentional misconduct.

6. Other Websites or Applications.

Our Sites may contain links to other websites or may allow you to use third party services (such as social networking services). We are not responsible for the privacy practices of any other websites or service providers. Information you submit to those websites and service providers is subject to the privacy policies of those websites and service providers, not this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of these other websites and service providers before you submit any information to them.

7. Marketing Emails.

If you have provided us with your email address, we may periodically send you emails that promote or otherwise contain information relating to our organization. When you receive emails from us, you may indicate a preference to “opt out” of, and thus to stop receiving, further emails from us by following the “unsubscribe” instructions provided in the email(s) you receive. Even if you request not to be contacted by us, we may use your contact information to send you crucial information about our Sites or information about changes to this Privacy Policy for any of our Sites.

8. Updating or Deleting Your Personal Information.

You may update your Personal Information at any time by contacting us at the email address listed in Section 12 below. We will make reasonable efforts to fulfill your request to change or delete your information in a timely manner. We may keep a record of all information that is changed or deleted, and we may determine what may be changed or deleted. For example, if we are required to keep track of certain kinds of transactions, you may be prevented from changing or deleting information relevant for those transactions. Even if we delete or change your information from our live database, it may still be stored on other databases (including those kept for archival purposes). Please note that if you delete certain information, you may not be able to use certain features of our Sites in the future without re-submitting that information. We are not responsible for changing or deleting information about you from the databases of any Third Parties.

9. International Users.

Because the Internet is global, information about you that we collect or that you submit may be transferred to, processed in, and held in countries (including the United States) other than the one in which you reside. YOU EXPRESSLY CONSENT TO OUR PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION ACCORDING TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY. YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE PROCESSED BY US IN THE COUNTRY WHERE IT WAS COLLECTED AND IN THE UNITED STATES OR ANOTHER COUNTRY. THE UNITED STATES LAWS REGARDING PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE LESS STRINGENT THAN THE LAWS IN YOUR COUNTRY.

10. Privacy of Children.

Our Sites are not directed at minors. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from, or maintain any Personal Information regarding, persons under the age of 13.

11. Updates to Our Privacy Policy.

We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of this Privacy Policy at any time. We will post notice of such changes on our Sites or will email notice of such changes to you at the email address we have on file for you. If you continue to use our Sites after a change is made, your use indicates your agreement that you have read, understood, and accepted the changed Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to any change to this Privacy Policy, you should stop using our Sites and request removal of your information from our databases.
