Your privacy is very important to us. At Dockside Boat Works we have a few fundamental principles that we follow on our website:

- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
Like most website operators, Dockside Boat Works collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Dockside Boat Works’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Dockside Boat Works’ visitors use our website.
Dockside Boat Works also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of visitors and of users leaving comments on our blog. Dockside Boat Works only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators on the post where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to our website choose to interact with Dockside Boat Works in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that the site gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who communicate with us via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Dockside Boat Works collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the website. Dockside Boat Works does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Dockside Boat Works may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, we may monitor the most popular pages on the site or use spam screening to help identify spam. Dockside Boat Works may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Dockside Boat Works does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Dockside Boat Works will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its administrators and affiliated organizations, as described above, Dockside Boat Works discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Dockside Boat Works believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Dockside Boat Works, third parties or the public at large.

“Pixels” are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that are used to track the online movements of web users. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a computer’s hard drive, pixels are small graphics that are about the size of the period at the end of the sentence that are embedded invisibly on web pages or in HTML-based emails. Our third-party analytics providers may place pixels on the website that track what other websites you visit (both before and after visiting the site). Our third-party analytics providers use information obtained from pixels to help us improve our website. We do not control the use of pixels by third parties.
Third Party Analytics Providers
Comments and other content submitted to anti-spam services are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
Do Not Track
Please note that we do not alter our Site’s data collection and use practices when we see a Do Not Track signal from your browser.
Due to the complexity and open nature of the Internet, no transmission of data over the Internet can be 100% secure. There is always a risk that information collected by and/or displayed on the website may be compromised or accessed notwithstanding the steps we take to secure your information. For example, a third party may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or other users of the site may abuse or misuse your personal information. Accordingly, you agree that you are providing such information at your own risk.
