As used in this policy, the terms “using” and “processing” information include using cookies on a computer, subjecting the information to statistical or other analysis and using or handling information in any way, including, but not limited to collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and transferring information within our organization.
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Site, Application, services, features and content, to administer your use of the Site and Application (together, the “Service”) and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Site and Application.
When you register with us through the Site or Application and become a Member and when you choose to post a Listing or book a Boat, or a Business, or when you wish to contact another Member, we will ask you for personally identifiable information. This refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you (“Identity Information”). Identity Information includes, but is not limited to, your name, phone number, email address and home postal address, but does not include your credit card number or billing information. In order to process some of your transactions through the Site and Application, we may also ask for your credit card number and other billing information (“Billing Information”) (Identity Information and Billing Information together, “Personal Information”). If the address of a Listing you post matches that of your credit card billing address, that address would be considered Identity Information. Some Personal Information is required, like your name and email address, and other Personal Information is optional, like your date of birth. We reserve the right to require address confirmation for Boats or Business included in Listings.
We collect Personal Information in connection with your registration to join the Service. You can register to join via the Site or Application by completing the required forms. As part of the functionality of the Site, Service and Application, you may link your Yanpy Account with Third Party Accounts, by either: (i) providing your Third Party Account login information to Yanpy through the Site, Service or Application; or (ii) allowing Yanpy to access your Third Party Account, as is permitted under the applicable terms and conditions that govern your use of each Third Party Account. You represent that you are entitled to disclose your Third Party Account login information to Yanpy and/or grant Yanpy access to your Third Party Account (including, but not limited to, for use for the purposes described herein), without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable Third Party Account and without obligating Yanpy to pay any fees or making Yanpy subject to any usage limitations imposed by the applicable SNS. If you decide to register by logging into a Third Party Account via our Site or Application, we will obtain the Personal Information you have provided to the applicable SNS (such as your 'real' name, email address, profile picture, names of SNS friends, names of SNS groups to which you belong, other information you make publicly available via the applicable SNS and/or other information you authorize Yanpy to access by authorizing the SNS to provide such information) from your Third Party Accounts and use that information to create your Yanpy Account and Yanpy Account profile page and you will become a Member. Depending on the Third Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third Party Accounts, you understand that by granting us access to the Third Party Accounts, we will access, make available and store (if applicable and as permitted by the SNS and authorized by you) the information in your Third Party Accounts so that it is available on and through your Yanpy Account on the Site, Service and Application. If there is information about your 'friends' or people with whom you are associated in your Third Party Account, the information we obtain about those 'friends' or people with whom you are associated, may also depend on the privacy settings such people have with the applicable SNS.
If you register to be a part of our Affiliate Program, we will collect your name, website name, website URL, email address and affiliate program payment preferences (including, but not limited to, bank account number and routing number, bank account name, PayPal account email address, billing address and other financial information). We use this information to enable your participation in the Affiliate Program and to make payments related thereto.
We also collect the other information that you provide as part of registration and the administration and personalization of your Yanpy Account profile (e.g., without limitation, zip code (on its own) and individual preferences or demographic information) (“Non-Identifying Information”). We use your Personal Information (in some cases, in conjunction with your Non-Identifying Information) mainly to provide the Service, complete your transactions, and administer your inquiries.
We also use your Personal Information to contact you with Yanpy newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications or update your “Notifications” information. Please note that we may also use your Personal Information to contact you with information related to your use of the Service; you may not opt out of these notifications.
When you visit the Site and Application, whether as a Member or a non-registered user just browsing (any of these, an “Yanpy User”), our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Site and Application, pages of our Site and Application that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Site and Application, access times and dates, and other statistics. We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Site, Application and the Service and for the Site and Application's technical administration, to increase our Site and Application's functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor our Site and Application to our visitors' needs. We also use this information to verify that visitors to the Site meet the criteria required to process their requests. We do not treat Log Data as Personal Information or use it in association with other Personal Information, though we may aggregate, analyze and evaluate such information for the same purposes as stated above regarding other Non-Identifying Information.
As part of the Service, Yanpy Users may communicate with Yanpy Members through use of the “Contact Owner” feature on the Site and Application. Where Yanpy Users have selected the option of adding one or more email addresses to an online form, the message they create in the corresponding template will be sent from Yanpy to those email addresses on their behalf. These email addresses will be used only for the purpose of sending the email communication to the addressee.
If you choose to use our referral service to ask a friend for a recommendation, we will ask you for your friend’s email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. Yanpy stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email. firstname.lastname@example.org Your friend may contact us to request that we remove this information from our database.
Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to Yanpy. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your Yanpy Account ID, login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.
The Site, Application and Service can be used to facilitate the listing and booking of Boats. Listings for such Boats are made available via the Site, Application and Service by Owners. Listings posted by Owners, ratings and reviews of Owners and Customers, and the Profile Information (as defined below) of Owners and Customers, are visible to any Yanpy User.
When you create a Yanpy Account, we will set up an Yanpy Account profile page for you. Your Yanpy Account profile page will include your first name. You can select the other items of Personal Information that you wish to be included in your Yanpy Account profile page – including, but not limited to, a profile picture, a list of the SNS groups to which you belong, a list of any of your SNS friends or connections who are also Members of Yanpy, connections you have established between your Account and any SNSs, and a biography and links to your Listings, if applicable (together, your “Profile Information”). We will display your Profile Information in your Yanpy Account profile page publicly via the Site and Application, and, with your prior permission, on third party sites. Any information you choose to provide as part of your Profile Information will be publicly visible to all Yanpy Users and consequently should reflect how much you want other Yanpy Users to know about you. We recommend that you guard your anonymity and sensitive information and we encourage members to think carefully about what information about themselves they disclose in their profile pages. You can review and revise your Profile Information at any time.
If you post a Listing, we may publish that Listing publicly via the Site and Application. We may also display the geographical location of your Listing in the form of a map so that potential Customers can see the general area and neighborhood of your Listing, but your actual street address will not be disclosed until you enter into a confirmed transaction with another Member.
If you request to make a booking via the Site, Application and Service, Yanpy will share the following information about you with the applicable Owner: (i) your first and last name, (ii) a link to your Yanpy Account profile page. All of this information will enable the Owner to decide whether to confirm or reject your booking. When an Owner confirms a booking we will share pieces of the Owner’s Identify Information, including, but not limited to, full name, phone number, the Boat’s address and the Owner’s email address, with the applicable Customer selected by the Owner and we will share pieces of the Guest’s Identify Information with the Owner, including, but not limited to, full name, phone number and email address, so that the Customer and Owner may contact one another directly. In no event is a Customer's Billing Information shared with a Owner.
We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Site and Application-related services (e.g., without limitation, maintenance services, database management, web analytics, fraud detection services relating to the activity of Yanpy Users and improvement of the Site and Application's features) or to assist us in analyzing how our Site, Application and Service are used. These third parties may have access to your Personal Information; if they do, this access is only so that they may perform these tasks on our behalf and they are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
Our Platform may use social plugins which are provided and operated by third-party companies, such as Facebook’s Like Button.
As a result of this, you may send to the third-party company the information that you are viewing on a certain part of our Platform. If you are not logged into your account with the third-party company, then the third party may not know your identity. If you are logged into your account with the third-party company, then the third party may be able to link information about your visit to our Platform to your account with them. Similarly, your interactions with the social plugin may be recorded by the third party.
Yanpy cooperates with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of Yanpy or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, any illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.
Yanpy may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including your Personal Information, in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets or in the event of bankruptcy.
All Members may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information in their registration profile by contacting us at email@example.com or editing the relevant part of their profile. If you would like us to cancel your Yanpy Account, please contact us or select the 'Cancel Account' feature of the Service and we will attempt to accommodate your request if we do not have any legal obligation or a legitimate business reason to retain the information contained in your Yanpy Account. Please note that, if you cancel your Yanpy Account, any reviews you have posted via the Site and Application will remain publicly viewable via the Site and Application. Please see below for privacy contact information.
After your request, Yanpy will also notify you, about any other personal information stored by Yanpy when mandatory.
Yanpy is very concerned with safeguarding your information. Yanpy will never store sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number). Yanpy integrates with very secured payment platforms. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Site and Application, you can contact us.
We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your “personal data” (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting on the Site and Application in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.

If you choose to visit an advertiser by “clicking on” a banner ad or other type of advertisement, or click on another third party link, you will be directed to that third party's website. The fact that we link to a website or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other websites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.
