EU and UK Data Subjects

 

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation provides EU data subjects with the additional rights described below.

 

Use of Personal Information

 

We generally act as a data controller of EU data subject’s Personal Information submitted to us. We rely on that Personal Information for the legitimate commercial purposes of providing our products and services to you. Where we need to collect Personal Information by law or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that Personal Information when requested, we may not be able to provide you with our products or services. We consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights before we process your Personal Information. We do not use your Personal Information for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law.  In certain circumstances, we act as a data processor, and, in those circumstances, we process your Personal Information for the purposes set out in this Policy consistent with the data processing terms of those partners.  

 

We also may rely on your consent to collect, use or disclose your Personal Information. If we are relying on your consent to process your Personal Information, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us at the information below.  We will only use your Personal Information for the purposes for which we collected it unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your Personal Information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and explain the legal basis that allows us to do so.

 

If you are located in the EU and have any complaints regarding our privacy practices as a data controller, you have the right to make a complaint at any time to your local Supervisory Authority. However, we would appreciate the chance to address your concerns before you approach your Supervisory Authority, so please contact us first at the information below.

 

Data Subject Requests

 

If you would like to request a copy of your Personal Information being held by us, request that Personal Information be deleted, or to update and/or correct your Personal Information or request that we provide a copy to another data controller, please follow the process detailed in the “Your Rights” section below. We will need enough information to ascertain your identity as well as the nature of your request. We will aim to respond to your request within one (1) calendar month of receipt of the request. Where we were unable to do so within the calendar month, we will notify you of the soonest practicable time within which we can respond to your request (and within three (3) months from the date of your request).  Please note that there are certain exemptions and restrictions of these rights under the European data privacy laws that enable personal information to be retained, processed or withheld from access, and we will inform you of these exemptions and restrictions, if applicable. 

 

International Data Transfers

We offer EU and UK Model Clauses, also known as Standard Contractual Clauses, to meet the adequacy and security requirements for our customers that operate in the European Union and the United Kingdom, and make transfers of Personal Information from those jurisdictions to the United States and other countries that lack adequacy determinations.  Please contact us as detailed in the “Contact Us” section below for more information.

Your Rights

 

Various privacy laws, including the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), provide consumers with the additional rights, including: 

The right to know what personal information we have collected, used, disclosed and sold about you; and 

The right to request that we delete any personal information we have collected about you, subject to certain exceptions. 

If you would like to exercise the above rights, please contact us by phone at (616) 392-7163, or by email at marketing@tiarayachts.com.

 

When you exercise the above rights and submit a request to us, we will verify your identity.  We may ask for your email address or other information that we believe you will know that will allow us to verify that the request is coming from the person named in the request.  If we are unable to verify your identity, then your data privacy request will be denied. You also may designate an authorized agent to make a request for deletion on your behalf, subject to appropriate verification.

 

As noted above in the “Use of Cookies” section, you can opt out of our use of cookies that may serve interest-based advertising by setting your browser to reject cookies or you can manually delete individual cookies or all of the cookies on your computer by following your browser’s help file directions.  Please refer to your browser instructions or to www.aboutcookies.org to learn more about how to adjust of modify your browser settings.  

 

Your exercise of these rights will have no adverse effect on the price and quality of our goods or services.
