Do we use cookies?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow). These cookies enable the site to recognize your browser and, if you have a registered account, associate it with your registered account.

We use cookies to understand and save your preferences for future visits and compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

Fleet Speak discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Fleet Speak’s behalf or to provide services available at Fleet Speak’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Fleet Speak’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Fleet Speak will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Fleet Speak discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Fleet Speak believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Fleet Speak, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Fleet Speak website and have supplied your email address, Fleet Speak may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Fleet Speak and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Fleet Speak takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Business Transfers

You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Fleet Speak may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
