iii. Yachting Venture recognizes the importance of the security of your Personal Data and your electronic transactions and takes all the necessary measures, using the most up-to-date and advanced methods, to ensure maximum security. All information that relates to your personal information and your transactions is secure and confidential. The security of the Yachting Venture system is achieved by the following methods:
Customer Recognition: We use two codes to identify you: the E-mail or username and the Personal Security Password, which, each time you enter them, give you access with absolute security to your personal information.
You have the ability to change your Personal Security Password as often as you like. The only person who has access to your information is you through the above codes and you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy and hiding it from third parties. In case of loss or leakage, you must immediately notify us, as we are not responsible for the use of the password by an unauthorized person. For security reasons, we recommend that you change your password at regular intervals and avoid the use of the same and easily detectable codes (e.g., birth date). We also recommend that you not only use letters and numbers but also symbols in password creation.
Ensuring the Privacy of Your Personal Data Transmission
To ensure the confidentiality of data transfer, we use the SSL-256bit encryption protocol. The system has been certified by “Let’s Encrypt” which specializes in transaction security issues.
Automatic Disconnect: If there is no activity for 20 minutes, it automatically disconnects from the members of the Yachting Venture platform.
Firewall: Access to Yachting Venture site(servers) is controlled by a firewall, which allows for the use of specific services by customers / users, while at the same time prohibiting access to systems and databases with confidential data and company information.
Encryption: Yachting Venture system first decrypts the information it receives using the same key (which is pre-defined by the start of your connection to the service) and then processes them. Yachting Venture systems send you information by following the same encryption process.
Anywhere on the site you enter personal data (password, addresses, phones, credit cards, etc.) there is 256-bit SSL encryption.
Trading Confidentiality: Confidentiality is self-evident. The same basic principles governing classic transactions also apply to e-commerce. All information transmitted by the user / member to Yachting Venture is confidential and Yachting Venture has taken all necessary measures to use them only to the extent necessary in the context of the services provided. Some of the measures taken are the following:
Only authorized employees have access to your transaction information and only when necessary, e.g. to handle your requests.
Yachting Venture does not disclose the details of their users and transactions unless they have written authorization from you, or this is required by a court order or decision of another public authority.
In the event that Yachting Venture uses third parties to support their systems, it ensures that they are confidential.
Notwithstanding clause iv. you may request that any information be retained for you and may be corrected if you can substantiate the existence of an error.
For your own security, you should also handle all information provided through the service as confidential and not make any disclosure to third parties.
iv. PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION
When you visit Yachting Venture site, you may be asked to provide personal information about you (name, surname, e-mail address, shipping address, etc.) as a rule to process your orders or to provide our services. Any personal data you declare anywhere on the pages and services of the Yachting Venture site pages are strictly for the sole purpose of dealing with us, improving the services provided and ensuring the operation of the respective service, and will not be used by any third party (except where provided for by law to the competent authorities alone).
In any case, specific Yachting Venture employees have access to your personal data and unauthorized access to your personal data is prohibited. Any reasonable measure to secure your data has been taken. Some of your personal information will also be communicated to companies or entrepreneurships offering their services through Yachting Venture site, but always under conditions that fully ensure that your personal information don’t undergo any unlawful treatment.
