When you visit my website https://mikeshawaiianadventures.com (the “Website“), and more generally, use any of my services (the “Services“, which include the Website), I appreciate that you are trusting me with your personal information. I take your privacy very seriously. In this privacy notice, I seek to explain to you in the clearest way possible what information I collect, how I use it and what rights you have in relation to it. I hope you take some time to read through it carefully, as it is important. If there are any terms in this privacy notice that you do not agree with, please discontinue use of my Services immediately.

This privacy notice applies to all information collected through my Services (which, as described above, includes my Website), as well as, any related services, scuba diving classes or photography sessions.

Please read this privacy notice carefully as it will help you understand what I do with the information that I collect.

1. WHAT INFORMATION DO I COLLECT?

I collect personal information that you voluntarily provide to me when you register on the Website, express an interest in obtaining information about me or my Services, when you participate in activities on the Website or otherwise when you contact me.

The personal information that I collect depends on the context of your interactions with me and the Website, the choices you make and the services you use. The personal information I collect may include the following:

  Personal Information Provided by You. I may collect names; phone numbers; email addresses; mailing addresses; job titles; contact preferences; contact or authentication data; information you provide when using my services (e.g., name, email, address, etc.); information in blog comments; financial information (e.g., debit or credit card number, billing address, card type, issuing bank, expiration date, card origin by country) and other similar information.
  Payment Data. I may collect data necessary to process your payment if you make purchases, such as your payment instrument number (such as a credit card number), and the security code associated with your payment instrument.

All personal information that you provide to me must be true, complete, and accurate, and you must notify me of any changes to such personal information.

2. WILL YOUR INFORMATION BE SHARED WITH ANYONE?

We may process or share your data that we hold based on the following legal basis:

  Consent: I may process your data if you have given me specific consent to use your personal information for a specific purpose.
  Legitimate Interests: I may process your data when it is reasonably necessary to achieve my legitimate business interests.

I have implemented appropriate technical and organizational security measures designed to protect the security of any personal information I process. However, despite my safeguards and efforts to secure your information, no electronic transmission over the Internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so I cannot promise or guarantee that hackers, cybercriminals, or other unauthorized third parties will not be able to defeat my security, and improperly collect, access, steal, or modify your information.

You should only access the Website within a secure environment.

If I learn that personal information from users less than 18 years of age has been collected, I will take reasonable measures to promptly delete such data from my records. If you become aware of any data I may have collected from children under age 18, please contact me at info@mikeshawaiianadventures.com.

9. WHAT ARE YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS?

In Short:  In some regions, such as the European Economic Area (EEA) and United Kingdom (UK), you have rights that allow you greater access to and control over your personal information. You may review, change, or terminate your account at any time.

I will consider and act upon any request in accordance with applicable data protection laws.

If I am relying on your consent to process your personal information, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Please note however that this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before its withdrawal, nor will it affect the processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.
