We collect personal data when you use our Request Form or Contact Form.

In order to book a trip through Bodtur Yachting, or to provide a trip as a boat owner and receive payment, you will need to provide payment and billing information.


You have choices about the information you provide for your profile, such as a photo, spoken languages, and a short biography. You don't have to provide additional information on your profile; however, profile information helps you to get more from our Services.

Other than the personal information required to create an account (i.e., your name, email address, phone number and password), it is your choice whether to include additional personal data on your profile. We do not require you to provide Sensitive Personal Data to complete your public profile. We recommend that you exercise care in deciding what information and content you wish to disclose on the areas of our Site that are accessible to the general public. Please do not post or add personal data to your profile that you would not want to be publicly available.



We log usage data when you visit or otherwise use our Services, including our sites and apps, such as when you view or click on content (e.g. boat listings), perform a search, or install or update one of our mobile apps. We use log-ins, cookies, device information and internet protocol ("IP") addresses to identify you and log your use.



When you visit our Services, we receive the URL of the site you came from. We also get information about your IP address, proxy server, operating system, web browser and add-ons, device identifier and features, and/or ISP or your mobile carrier.

We will ask you to opt-in (i.e., consent) before we collect your precise location.



We collect personal data when you communicate with us or sign up to receive promotional materials or information, including email address and phone number. In addition, we collect information about you when you send, receive, or engage with messages in connection with our Services. For example, if you get a Booking Inquiry or Offer, we track whether you have acted on it and will send you reminders to take further actions.

We also collect personal data from you when you provide, post or upload it to our Site or via our Services, such as when you submit a form (e.g., a Boat listing).


We may collect information, such as name and email address, from publicly available sources and other third parties, such as marketing data providers, to help us provide and improve the Services and for marketing and advertising. We may combine your personal data with data we obtain from our Services, other users, or third parties to enhance your experience and improve the Services.
