Personally Identifiable Information:
Personal information consists of information that enables us to identify you – for example, your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address — as well as other information you may provide us within areas such as your opinions and preferences regarding content and services of the Website.
We may ask for your personal information in situations that include, but are not limited to the following: (i) in connection with your signing up or registering on the Website to receive certain information or newsletters from us, or to be included in certain affinity groups, (ii) to receive access to certain aspects of the Website, (iii) if you wish to participate in surveys or information requests from the Website, (iv) to help customize the Website to your preferences, and (v) in connection with a purchase you make via the Website – such as signing up to be a passenger on a cruise we sponsor — in order to process, service and deliver your order (in which case we may also ask for your credit card number). If you are between 13 and 18 years of age, do not make any purchase via the Website unless you have the permission of your parent or guardian to do so.
Sharing your personal information with our Website is strictly voluntary, and you may use and benefit from our Website, other than as set forth in the preceding paragraph, without providing such information. In order to benefit from certain pages of our Website, however – for example, to receive newsletters or production information from us, to sign up for our loyalty program, or to participate in surveys or polls – you may be prompted to provide certain personal information. You are not required to provide us with this information, but if you choose not to provide such personal information when we request it, we may not be able to provide you with the particular service, purchase, information or benefits that require such disclosure. You will not be able to sign up to be a passenger on any of the cruises we offer without disclosing certain personal information we request, such as, but not limited to, name, address, e-mail address, citizenship, date of birth, payment information (which can include a credit card), and preferences relating to the cruise (such as cabin preference and roommate).
When you access our Website or communicate with us through a mobile device, we may receive and collect or store a unique identification number associated with your device, mobile carrier, device type and manufacturer, and phone number. We may use or work with third parties including our third-party business partners or service providers who use mobile storage development kits (“SDK”). An SDK is a computer code that app developers can include in their apps to enable ads to be shown, data to be collected, and related services and functionality to be implemented. A mobile SDK is in effect a mobile version of a “pixel tag” or “beacon”. We may use these technologies to, for example, collect information to help us analyze how you interact with our content and services.
Please note that if you use a mobile device, social media account, or location enabled products and/or services to access our Website or contact us, you may be sending us information such as GPS data which reveals your actual location.
Providing Information For Others
If you make reservations for others on your booking, all of the guests who are included on your booking may be able to access the personal data of the other guests on the reservation. Nevertheless, they will not be able to modify or cancel your reservation.
Information We Receive from Social Networking Sites or Other Third Parties
When you interact with our Website through various social media, such as when you login through Facebook, or share our content on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram or other sites, we may receive information from the social network including your profile information, profile picture, profile name, user ID associated with your social media account, country and any other information you permit the social network to share with third parties. The data we receive is dependent upon your privacy settings with the social network, and we will not post information about you on third party social media sites without your consent. You should always review, and if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party Websites and services before linking or connecting them to our Website.
We may also collect information about you from other third parties, for example, tour operators, data aggregators, and our partners.
We may also collect information about you that is publicly available. This information may be combined with the information we collect from you directly as discussed above. We use this information to better understand the demographics of our customers, to connect with you on social networks, and improve our Websites and our customer experience.

Sharing Your Information:
Sharing/Disclosure for Business Purposes: OTB may disclose or share your personal information with third parties only as necessary for business purposes associated with your cruise reservation and cruise activities (“Business Purposes”), as further described below in the How We Use Your Personal Information section below. Disclosure and sharing for Business Purposes includes, without limitation, disclosure/sharing for such purposes to or with subsidiaries or affiliates of OTB, service providers for the cruise and cruise activities (including payment processors), operators of vessels used by OTB for cruises, vendors acting on OTB’s behalf, your travel agents, government authorities, or the purchaser of substantially all of the assets of OTB or a subsidiary or affiliate of OTB. Our policy is to require that third parties to which personal information is disclosed or shared for Business Purposes to keep that information confidential, subject to applicable law. When we disclose or share personal information for Business Purposes, we try to limit the information disclosed or shared to that which is necessary for the purposes disclosed/shared. We reserve the right to disclose personally identifiable information, without notice, if we believe that such action is necessary, and permitted by applicable law, to defend and protect the rights or property of OTB and its family of Websites or to protect the personal safety of users of OTB, its Websites or the public. Your credit card number is used to process your request for products or services and will be shared only with third parties that are involved with the transaction; it will not be shared with third parties that are not involved with the transaction. To request that OTB delete, correct, modify, or limit to use of the personal information you have provided for Business Purposes, you should notify us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by letter sent to: OTB – 30 N. Gould St, Suite R Sheridan, WY 82801, Attn: Privacy Department. Once we receive, confirm, and verify your request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception to the deletion right applies under applicable law. If you request deletion of your personal information, though, please be aware that this may mean that you will not be able to participate in the cruise.
Sharing/Disclosure Other Than For Business Purposes: OTB will not disclose, sell or share your confidential personal information for use by any third parties other than for Business Purposes unless (i) we have informed you in advance, given you reasonable time to object to the potential disclosure, sale, or sharing, and not received an objection from you within such time, (ii) been authorized by you, or (iii) are required by law to do so regardless of your authorization. If you consent to disclosure, sale, or sharing of your personal information by us to third parties for other than Business Purposes and later wish to revoke your consent, you have the right to do so by notifying us by e-mail at email@example.com, or by letter sent to: OTB – 30 N. Gould St, Suite R Sheridan, WY 82801, Attn: Privacy Department.
In the last 12 months, we have not disclosed or shared any personal information of customers with third parties for reasons other than Business Purposes.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of the rights described above. Unless otherwise permitted by law, we will not deny you goods or services, provide you with a different level or quality of goods or services, or charge you different prices or rates for goods or services because you have exercised your rights described above.

How We Protect Your Information:
Security for all personally identifiable information is extremely important to us.

We also require that third parties with whom we share personal information use commercially reasonable procedures to safeguard and secure the information we share. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that data transmitted over the Internet will always be secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products and services, and you do so at your own risk. We will have no liability for disclosure of personal information you submit to us due to errors in transmission, unauthorized acts of third parties or through the use of third-party cookies, programs, routines, viruses or other devices on your computer, our computers or servers, or any other computer.
