Last Updated: June 11, 2018

Dolphin Encounters Limited (“DEL”), respect your concerns about privacy. References in this Privacy Policy to “DEL”, “we”, “us”, and “our” are references to the Dolphin Encounters Limited entity responsible for the processing of your personal information.

This Privacy Policy describes the types of personal information we obtain, how we may use that personal information, with whom we may share it and how you may exercise your rights regarding our processing of that information. The Privacy Policy also describes the measures we take to safeguard the personal information we obtain and how you can contact us about our privacy practices. We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. You will be advised if we change the policy.

This Privacy Policy applies to the personal information we obtain through DEL properties, including websites, products, services, and other tools offered by DEL that reference this Privacy Policy (“Online Channels”); offline collection, including DEL events, surveys, questionnaires, incident reports, customer user research and evaluations (“Offline Channels”); and third-party sources, including business partners, ad networks and vendors (collectively, the “Offerings”). This Privacy Policy does not apply to other DEL products and services that post separate privacy policies.

The Online Channels may provide links to other third-party websites and features. Some of these third-party websites may be co-branded with a DEL logo even though they are not owned, controlled, operated or maintained by DEL. DEL does not share your personal information with those websites and is not responsible for their privacy practices. These websites are subject to their respective privacy policies. In some cases, we may provide the Offerings jointly with other businesses. For these co-branded offerings in which a third party is involved in your transactions, we will sometimes share or jointly collect customer data related to those transactions with that third party.

Personal Information We Obtain

The data we obtain varies based on the Offerings you use. We obtain personal information through your interaction with the Offerings, such as when you register or apply to a DEL partner program; sign up for an online program, event, or activity; request services or information; participate in DEL events, programs or activities, correspond with us or request information from us.

The types of personal information we obtain may include contact information (such as name email address, telephone number, postal or other physical address) for you or for others (e.g., principals in your business or billing contacts); biographical and demographic information (such as gender, job title/position and occupation); photographs; billing and financial information (such as name, billing address, payment card details and bank account information and purchase history); information you submit in connection with a career opportunity at DEL, such as contact details, information in your résumé (including work history, education and language skills) and details about your current employment; personal information contained in forums, blogs, and testimonials you provide or that we obtain from publicly available sources (such as social media channels); information related to participation in classroom or online training, including programs completed and certifications achieved; information necessary to provide support or other paid consulting services (such as contact details, chat services, support details, and event history); personal information contained in content you submit to us (such as through our “Contact” feature or other in-product or in-service messaging); and other personal information we obtain through our Offerings and incident reports.

Please note that providing personal information to us is voluntary on your part. If you choose not to provide us certain information, we may not be able to offer you certain products and services, and you may not be able to access certain features of the Online Channels.

Depending on the purposes for which personal information is used, and the context in which the data is obtained, we may rely on one or more of the legal bases being the performance of a contract with you or a relevant party; our legitimate business interests; compliance with a legal obligation, a court order, or to exercise or defend legal claims; or your consent to the processing, which you can revoke at any time.
