SAILDRONE’s Vision is that by improving our understanding of the Earth’s oceans, we gain critical environmental intelligence to better understand and advance weather and climate modeling, ocean science, sustainable fisheries management, and environmental monitoring. In using SAILDRONE’s Consumer Products, the User (“YOU”) is/are an integral part of realizing that Vision. We want to ensure that YOU are engaged in the experience and empowered to better understand the world and its oceans.
At SAILDRONE, we understand the importance of privacy and we will always strive to protect Your privacy and preserve the trust YOU place in us. We only collect and retain as much information, as is absolutely necessary for us to provide YOU with our SAILDRONE’s Consumer Products (the “Service”) provided by SAILDRONE, Inc. and any of our affiliates (collectively, “SAILDRONE”), as described below, and whenever possible, we disassociate any personally identifiable information from the data we retain. We will only share user data with third parties if we are obligated to by law, or to the extent that it directly contributes to the Service we provide (and with the proper precautions to protect Your personal information).
We collect information YOU provide to us, as part of our delivery of the Service to YOU. Examples of information that YOU provide to SAILDRONE may include, but not be limited to:

We may provide anonymous data to third party analytics companies to help us understand how the Service is being used to help us make improvements.
YOU can stop all collection of information by the Service and/or the Services, by uninstalling the Applications and ceasing all use of the Websites. Because we anonymize the majority of the data we collect, it is simply not possible to associate the information collected with a particular user and as such, we do not offer any means to delete previously collected information.
YOU can opt-out of the collection of certain information as follows:
Some browsers can transmit a “do not track” signal or other similar mechanisms. Unfortunately, there is not yet an adopted standard for how to respond to these signals. SAILDRONE does not track its customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third-party sites do keep track of Your browsing activities when they serve YOU content, which enables them to tailor what they present to YOU. If YOU are visiting such sites, Safari, a feature that allows iOS users the ability to limit targeting and tracking of web browsing behavior by various web services, allows YOU to set the DNT signal on Your browser, so that third parties know YOU do not want to be tracked. If YOU would like to learn how to set Safari so that websites do not track YOU, go here:https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202074#iOS
Third parties that have content embedded in the iOS environment and websites such as a social feature or a stock ticker may set cookies on a user’s browser and/or obtain information about the fact that a web browser visited a specific iOS website from a certain IP address. Third parties cannot collect any other personally identifiable information from Apple’s websites, unless YOU provide it to them directly.
SAILDRONE adheres to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, but does not collect personal information from minors under the age of 16. SAILDRONE offers interactive services which allow YOU to post content to share publicly or with friends. At any time, YOU can delete or remove content YOU have posted using the deletion or removal options within our services. If YOU have questions about how to remove content in a specific service or if YOU would like additional assistance with deletion, YOU can contact SAILDRONE’s Support Team directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of Your information. We provide physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect information we process and maintain. For example, we limit access to this information to authorized employees and contractors who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve the Service. Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.
