Legal Grounds for Using Personal Information
We rely on the following legal grounds to process personal information, namely:
Performance of a contract: we may need to collect and use personal information to enter into a contract with you or to perform a contract that you have entered into with us.
Legal obligation: we may need to collect and use personal information to comply with legal obligations to which the Wakeboat garage SA is subject.
The Measures We Have in Place to Protect and Safely Store the Information We Collect
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter personal information through a Service, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL) or other secure means for encryption. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us from loss, unauthorized access or disclosure, both during transmission and once we receive it. These measures include firewall protection, password encryption and restricted server access. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its security. You acknowledge that you are aware of security and privacy limitations, such as: (a) the limitation of security, privacy and authentication measures and features; and (b) that data or information on the Sites or server providing Services may be subject to hacking, password theft, electronic fraud and/or viruses. Subject to our obligations to you under the GDPR and the equivalent Swiss arrangements if you are in Europe and other applicable laws, we assume no liability for any disclosure of information due to errors in transmission, unauthorized third party access or other acts of third parties, or acts or omissions beyond our reasonable control and you agree that you will not hold us responsible for any breach of security. Any transmission of your information is at your own risk. Therefore, we urge all users to exercise caution while using our Services.
We use several suppliers and service providers in connection with the operation of our business and they may maintain or have access to the personal information we process. For example, an IT service provider may see your personal information when providing software support, or a company which we use for delivery of goods, processing of credit card payments or a marketing campaign may process your personal information for us. When contracting with suppliers and/or service providers, the Wakeboat Garage SA takes appropriate steps to ensure that such third parties are required to maintain adequate protection of personal information.
Retention of the Information We Collect
We retain the information we collect for no longer than is reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collect the information to comply with our legal obligations, and to serve our reasonable interests (e.g., until termination of any statutes of limitation).
Following completion of the services provided by us, we will either retain the related papers or store these records digitally.
Where personal information is retained for the purposes of sharing promotional material, and you no longer want to be contacted by us, please contact us as advised in Section 17 below. Please include your name and mailing address (as well as your email address) if you also prefer not to receive direct mail. Note that you may still receive service-related communications from us.

Web Log Information
Web log information is gathered when you visit our Sites our use certain Services by the computer that hosts our Sites or other Services (called a “server”). The server automatically recognizes some information, such as the date and time you visited our Sites or used another Service, the pages you visited, crashes, the website you came from, the type of browser you are using (e.g. Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using, and location data. It helps us improve our Sites or other Services and to deliver a better and more personalized service, such as by enabling us to: (a) estimate our audience size and usage patterns; (b) store information about your preferences, allowing us to customize our Services according to your individual interests; (c) speed up your searches; and (d) recognize you when you return to our Sites or other Services.
The Sites and certain other Services may use Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider, so you can access the Internet. Generally, an IP address changes each time you connect to the Internet (it is a dynamic address). Note, however, that if you have a broadband connection, depending on your individual circumstance, it is possible that your IP address that we collect, or even perhaps a cookie we use, may contain information that could be deemed identifiable. This is because with some broadband connections your IP address doesn’t change (it is static) and could be associated with your personal computer. We use your IP address to report aggregate information on use and to help improve the Sites and other Services.
How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals and Apply Local Shared Objects, Pixel Tags, Web Beacons, Analytics, Tailored Advertising and Location Information
Do Not Track is a privacy preference that visitors and users can set in their browsers. When a visitor or user turns on the Do Not Track signal, the browser sends a message to websites requesting them not to track the visitor or user. For information about Do Not Track, visit www.allaboutdnt.org. At this time, the Sites do not respond to Do Not Track browser settings or signals.
In addition, the Sites or other Services may use other technology that is standard to the Internet, such as local shared objects, pixel tags, web beacons and other similar technologies, to track visitors to or users of the Sites or other Services. Those tools may be used by us and third parties (such as Facebook and Google) to collect information about you and your Internet activity, even if you have turned on the Do Not Track signal.
