Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us, so Sea Island Fly Fishers (SIFF) has created this Privacy Policy to explain how your information is protected, collected and used. This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time. You can always review the most current version here. By using the Sites, you consent to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy and are aware that our policies may evolve in the future. If there is a conflict between our Terms of Use governing your use of the Sites and this Privacy Policy, the Terms of Use control.

1. Protecting Your Privacy

In various places on the Sites, we collect “Personally Identifiable Information,” such as your name, postal address, telephone number, e-mail address, or other information that can be used to identify you or contact you.

    SIFF will not share any of your Personally Identifiable Information, except for the information you choose to publicly disclose in the listings you publish, with advertisers or any third-parties for marketing purposes.
    SIFF offers email anonymization & relay to protect your identity and reduce spam.
    Account information is password protected. Keep your password safe.
    SIFF does not knowingly collect any Personally Identifiable Information from persons under the age of 13, and SIFF does not permit persons under the age of 13 to register on the Site. If SIFF learns that a listing is by a person under the age of 13, SIFF will remove that listing.

SIFF, or people that place listings on SIFF, may provide links to third party web sites, which may have different privacy practices than SIFF. We are not responsible for, nor have any control over, the privacy policies on these third party web sites. We encourage all users to read the privacy policies of every web site you visit.

2. Registration

Registration is required to place a listing through our service or to use other types of functionality that require the service to recognize a user. If you decide to register, you will need to give us certain Personally Identifiable Information, such as a valid e-mail address and zip code. You will also have the option to provide other Personally Identifiable Information such as your address. This Personally Identifiable Information will be used to personalize and improve your experience of our service. This information will not be disclosed to any third-party without your explicit consent.

You can review and change your Personally Identifiable Information or password at any time on the My Profile Tab in the My Account section.

3. Cookies and Scripts

SIFF presently does not utilize a standard technology call “cookies.”

4. In addition to Personally Identifiable Information you provide at registration or by using the service, we collect the following information:

    Listings content:
    When you place a listing or a review on the Sites, we collect a variety of information related to that listing (e.g., price, model). The public will see any information that you include in your listing, and as such, SIFF has no control over how this information will be used. For that reason, please think carefully about what Personally Identifiable Information you disclose in your listing. You can always edit or deactivate any of your listings.
5. Data We Store

The following information is stored in our database, even after deletion, and may be archived:

  •     Registration information.
  •     All listings, review and comment content.
  •     Activity logs and other records.

Although we make good faith efforts to store information in a secure environment that is not made available to the public, we cannot guarantee complete security.

We may use the information you disclosed to us to:

  •     Provide our services to you.
  •     Provide customer service to you.
  •     Prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities.
  •     Enforce our Terms of Use.
  •     Automatically scan messages to check for spam, fraud, phishing attacks and other malicious activity or illegal or prohibited content.

6. Disclosure

SIFF may disclose information about its users if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to:

  •     Respond to a legal process (e.g., subpoenas, court orders).
  •     Respond to claims that a listing or content violates the rights of third parties.
  •     Enforce our Terms of Use.
  •     Protect the rights, property or personal safety of SIFF, its users or the general public.
