COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
Water Transportation Alternatives, Inc. does not collect personally identifying data, such as names, addresses, email addresses, and the like, except when voluntarily submitted by website visitors. In only one situation do we request personally identifying data from site visitors: for online purchases of admission and event tickets. We may collect information that is used to make our website more useful by helping us learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use, but we do not track or record information about individuals and their visits. We may compile and report aggregate statistics about our users — such as numbers, traffic patterns, and related site information — but these statistics include no personally identifying information.
DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
Water Transportation Alternatives, Inc. will not disclose or share any personal information you provide to us with any other party without your permission, except if requested to do so in accordance with a court order, subpoena, or similar legal order, and in the event such disclosure is necessary to protect the rights, property, and safety of us, our users, and other third parties. We will not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others.
THIRD PARTY PROCESSING
Purchases made online of admission and event tickets are processed by third parties who handle all related ordering, processing, and delivery of the products. The third parties’ practices in connection with the ordering, processing, and delivery of products are subject to their own privacy policies. You should consult the privacy policies for the online ticket sales at http://www.gateway.com/about/legal/security.php to ascertain the uses of the personal information submitted to these third parties.
COOKIES AND SIMILAR ELECTRONIC TAGS
As is the case with many sites, when you visit our site and complete a registration form, we will place a “cookie” on your computer, which helps us identify you more quickly when you return. Cookies are small pieces of information stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive and are used in website system administration to keep track of movement of an individual from one screen to another. We will use “cookies” alone or in conjunction with other devices described below to understand how you arrived at our website, to determine which pages or information you find most useful or interesting at our own website, and to make choices about how to deliver the most relevant marketing messages about our products to you. This information may also be used by our staff to detect and resolve web site problems and to assist with customer support concerns. Most web browsers automatically accept “cookies,” but you can usually change your browser settings to prevent acceptance of a “cookie” offered by a website. If you experience any problems using our website, please see contact information below.
We may also use transparent GIF files, or pixel tags, and similar technologies to help manage online advertising. These files, which are provided by our third party advertising management partners, enable our advertising management partners to recognize a unique “cookie” on your web browser. This, in turn, allows our advertising management partners to provide us with data concerning visitors’ activities on our site, track and measure the performance of our marketing efforts and assist in the delivery of relevant marketing messages. These technologies are placed by us, or by another third party who works with our ad management partners to provide these services. With both “cookies” and pixel tag technology, the information that we collect and share is anonymous and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. For more information about advertising networks, including information about how to opt out of these technologies, click here.
Water Transportation Alternatives, Inc. does not solicit personal information from children. Visitors 12 years of age and under must obtain an adult’s permission before submitting any personal information to this site.
CHANGES TO OUR POLICY
We may amend this policy from time to time. If we make any substantial changes in the way we use your personal information, we will notify you by posting a prominent announcement on this page.
