Dragonfly Shipping takes all reasonable measures to ensure the integrity and security of information obtained on Internet users through the Website and to prevent any unauthorised access or use of this information. To that end, Dragonfly Shipping regularly reviews its security measures.
Data collected by automatic means
Several tools may be used on our Website to improve its efficiency and usability and for marketing and statistical purposes. These tools may include collection and automatic storage of data by us or by third parties on our behalf. In general, this data does not include users’ personal information. These tools include, without limitation, cookies, Adobe Flash cookies, web beacons (also called “pixel tags” or “clear GIFs”), tracking URLs or similar tools and web analytics software.
Collected data may include, without limitation:
- Visitors’ IP addresses;
- Date and time of visit;
- Referral URL (the website from which the visitor came);
- Pages visited on our Website;
- Information on the browser used (type and browser version, operating system, etc.).
Web beacons, tracking URLs or similar tools and cookies are primarily used for statistical analysis. These tools may also be used to follow traffic patterns on websites or to know if an email has been received, opened or answered.
Web analytics software gathers data on and analyses the behaviour of visitors of websites or mobile applications. It analyses traffic patterns, for example, to determine how often certain parts of a website or a mobile application are viewed or which information or services interest our visitors. To this end, we mostly use clickstream data and other techniques described above. The web analytics services used on our Website and our mobile applications are provided by Google Analytics or other service providers.
This means that when you visit our Website, a Google Analytics cookie is stored on your computer or mobile device, provided that your browser settings allow such cookies, as mentioned above. Furthermore, when you visit our Website, the web analytics data described above (including clickstream data, data provided by web beacons and tracking URLs and information stored in Google Analytics cookies) is sent to Google Analytics to be analysed for Dragonfly Shipping.
Google Analytics acts as Dragonfly Shipping’s agent, which means that Dragonfly Shipping determines the purposes for which the data is used and Google Analytics may not disclose this information to third parties (except in cases where the law or a court order forces such disclosure). With regard to privacy, this means that Dragonfly Shipping is the “guarantor” and Google Analytics is the “data processor”.
We offer geolocation services on our Website, particularly through Google Maps.
If you use mobile applications, these applications may receive information regarding your current location (similar to the GPS signals sent by mobile devices) or other information that can be used to determine your location. You can authorise the activation of the geolocation service. You can also prohibit at any time an application from using the geolocation service.
Our Website uses Internet retargeting tools. Visitors who are interested by our products can see our ads on partner websites. We believe that personalised advertising, based on users’ interests, is more interesting than advertising without any connection to the consumer.
We collaborate with companies that use tracking tools. These companies broadcast ads on our behalf on the Internet. They may gather non-personally identifiable information on your visits to our Website and your interaction with our communications, particularly ads.
Retargeting tools analyse your cookies and display ads according to your behaviour on the Internet. This technology does not store any of your personal information.
Use and storage
Data gathered through our Website and other information provided in any other way to Dragonfly Shipping may be used to improve our Website’s content, for marketing research purposes, for statistics purposes, to improve our services or to provide you with interest-based information.
We only use data for the purposes for which they were collected. Your consent is required to use your personal information for marketing purposes other than the ones mentioned above. You may opt out from such use of your data, ask that your data be deleted or be modified.
Dragonfly Shipping stores the information for a reasonable period of time to achieve its objectives or in accordance with legal provisions. Following this period, the information shall be deleted or anonymised.
You can contact us by email at the following address email@example.com for any question regarding this Policy or any request regarding your data. We will make every effort to process your request quickly.
