We may track and collect the following categories of information when you visit our Site: (1) IP addresses; (2) domain servers; (3) types of computers accessing the Site; and (4) types of web browsers used to access the Site (collectively “Traffic Data”). Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you but is helpful for marketing purposes or for improving your experience on the Site. We also use “cookies” to customize content specific to your interests, to ensure that you do not see the same advertisement repeatedly, and to store your password so you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit the Site (see Section 5 below).
(b) PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED. We provide you with the opportunity to (i) request information about boat ownership or membership in our SailTime program, and (ii) schedule charters and classes through the Site. In order for us to provide you with these services, our online forms request certain information that will personally identify you (“Personal Information”). Personal Information includes, but is not limited to your name, e-mail address, physical address, information you may provide in our comment sections, information you communicate with us via email, and logistic information for the booking of charters and classes, such as dates, type of charter or class. When you process a payment, financial data will be collected indirectly through our third-party processor (“Financial Data”).
2.2 USES OF INFORMATION COLLECTED
(a) COMPANY USE OF INFORMATION. We may use Personal Information to send you information about the Company or our products via brochure or email, track sales and communications, provide customer service, perform research, respond to inquiries, schedule classes, schedule charters, and facilitate your purchases of boats or SailTime membership.

These third-party service providers (i) shall be permitted to obtain only the Personal Information they need to provide the service, (ii) must protect Personal Information to the same extent as the Company, and (iii) shall be prohibited from using it for any other purpose. These third-parties are listed below, and may be updated by Naos Yachts, Inc. from time to time:
