Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us.  At Bonefish & Tarpon Trust we have a few fundamental principles:

We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products/service, or protect our rights.
Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

It is Bonefish & Tarpon Trust’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Bonefish & Tarpon Trust collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Bonefish & Tarpon Trust’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Bonefish & Tarpon Trust’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Bonefish & Tarpon Trust may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Bonefish & Tarpon Trust also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Bonefish & Tarpon Trust does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Bonefish & Tarpon Trust’s websites choose to interact with Bonefish & Tarpon Trust in ways that require Bonefish & Tarpon Trust to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Bonefish & Tarpon Trust gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with Bonefish & Tarpon Trust are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal information required to process those transactions. In each case, Bonefish & Tarpon Trust collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Bonefish & Tarpon Trust. Bonefish & Tarpon Trust does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Children’s Privacy

We recognize the need to provide further privacy protections with respect to personal information we may collect from children under 13 on our Website. If we have actual knowledge that a user is under 13 years old, the child will be asked to provide his or her parent’s or guardian’s email address. 

We will not knowingly collect personal information from children without taking the following additional steps to protect children’s privacy:

Parental Access

Parents/guardians of children under the age of 13 can request a parental consent form that allows them to review any personally identifiable information collected about their child, have this information deleted, and/or request that there be no further collection or use of their child’s personally identifiable information. You can contact Pat Bowman, Director of Operations at 786-618-9479 to request a parental consent form. We will take steps to verify the identity of anyone requesting personally identifiable information about a child and to ensure that the person is, in fact, the child’s parent or legal guardian.

Aggregated Statistics

Bonefish & Tarpon Trust may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Bonefish & Tarpon Trust may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Bonefish & Tarpon Trust does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Bonefish & Tarpon Trust 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 Bonefish & Tarpon Trust’s behalf or to provide services available at Bonefish & Tarpon Trust’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 Bonefish & Tarpon Trust’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Bonefish & Tarpon Trust 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, Bonefish & Tarpon Trust discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Bonefish & Tarpon Trust believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Bonefish & Tarpon Trust, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Bonefish & Tarpon Trust website and have supplied your email address, Bonefish & Tarpon Trust 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 Bonefish & Tarpon Trust and our products. We primarily use email to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. Bonefish & Tarpon Trust takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
