How we gather information from users
How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. For example, you may be asked to provide information when you register for access to certain portions of our site or request certain features, such as newsletters. Like most Web sites, Tyneandwearmarine.com also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our visitors.
For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use harmless cookie technology to recognise you and hold information from your visit. Among other things, these cookies may store your user name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular advertisement while visiting our site. As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means.
- Google Analytics
- Google Display Network
- Google Website Optimizer

- Twitter Re-Marketing
- Aweber – our shopping cart / list management system
By visiting and moving around our site you are giving us permission to use harmless cookies to enhance your experience.
In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but we may not be able to customise the site’s features according to your preferences.
Cookies are generally used for the following purposes:
- To enable the site to be personalised for you.
- For collecting statistics (for example, which page has been visited the most).
- For understanding which adverts and web searches are the most effective.
- To give us an idea of how people use our website services, so we can improve their features and functionality.
Please note again, you can disable cookies, if you wish, by opening your browser’s preferences windows, then selecting the “block cookies” option, which is usually found under “Privacy.”
To help you understand the cookies that we use on this site, we have categorized them according to the guidelines found in the ICC UK Cookie guide.
Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are essential to enable you to browse around our website and use its features. Without them, features like account control would not function correctly.
These cookies help us to understand how visitors use our site (for example, which pages are visited the most, or which links are clicked). We can use this data to optimise and improve the site. The information collected in these types of cookies cannot be used to personally identify a visitor.
We use functionality cookies to remember preferences or actions performed during your visits. For instance, we may use them to store which forms you have completed, so we can avoid repetition by keeping track of what features you have already viewed. The information these cookies collect will not personally identify you, and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
Third-party cookies are cookies that are not actually set by our website, but are set by other websites via embedded components or links in our website. You will need to refer to these third-party websites’ own privacy policies for details about their usage of cookies and personally identifiable information.
What we do with the information we collect
Like other Web publishers, we collect information to enhance your visit and deliver more individualised content and advertising. We respect your privacy and do not share your information with anyone.
Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. For example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to help enhance our site and services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive). Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners. Again, this information does not include any Personally Identifiable Information about you or allow anyone to identify you individually.
Personally Identifiable Information collected by Tyneandwearmarine.com may also be used for other purposes, including but not limited to site administration, troubleshooting, and other communications with you. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our Web hosting service for example) may access such information. We will use your information only as permitted by law. In addition, from time to time as we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, and/or to law enforcement authorities whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary. Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.
Affiliated sites, linked sites and advertisements
Tyneandwearmarine.com expects its partners, advertisers and affiliates to respect the privacy of our users.

For example, during your visit to our site you may link to, or view as part of a frame on a Tyneandwearmarine.com page, certain content that is actually created or hosted by a third party.
Also, through Tyneandwearmarine.com you may be introduced to, or be able to access, information, Web sites, features, contests or sweepstakes offered by other parties. Tyneandwearmarine.com is not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing information on a feature or page operated by a third party.
You should also be aware that if you voluntarily disclose Personally Identifiable Information on message boards or in chat areas, that information can be viewed publicly and can be collected and used by third parties without our knowledge and may result in unsolicited messages from other individuals or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of Tyneandwearmarine.com and this policy.
