Who we are
1. What you can expect from us
Alexony Maritime Limited/International Marine Purchasing Association does not capture and store any personal information about individuals who access this web site, except where personal details are voluntarily given via email, using an electronic form, registering as a member, providing references or enquiring about any of our services.
We are fully committed to compliance with the Data Protection Act 2018 (UK) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679, and wherever we request personal information from you, we will do our best to advise you how the information will be used, who will see it, why they need it, and what they will do with it.
We may collect technical data about the type of Internet Browser and computer operating system that you use. This information does not identify you as an individual and is used only for tracking of site use. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. However, in a few cases some of our website features may not function as a result.
From time to time we also conduct web visitor surveys which store a cookie on visitors’ computers. The cookie is used to identify web visitors who have already been offered the survey so that they are not prompted to participate a second time.
When you visit our website, we record your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address to help us diagnose any problems with our computer network. Any information logged is not given to any third-party companies and is kept solely for the reasons stated above. It is not linked to personally identifiable information so all visitors to our site remain anonymous.
3. Access to your information and correction
You have the right to request a copy of the information that we hold about you. If you would like a copy of some or all of your personal information, please email or write to us at the address noted below. We will not make a charge for this service. We want to make sure that your personal information is accurate and up to date. You may ask us to correct or remove information you think is inaccurate.
4. Your rights
You have a right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If you no longer wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, please email email@example.com or click the ‘unsubscribe’ link contained within our client emails.
5. Internet & Site Security
The Internet is not a secure system and you should always be cautious about the information you disclose whilst online as there is a risk that it could be intercepted.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
