All information provided to MA Marine Consultants will be processed in accordance with the UK data protection legislation.


If you notify us by e-mail or other written communication that any of the information which we hold about you is incorrect or misleading, we will take prompt action to correct or amend the information.

2. The ways we use the information

We will use the information to communicate with you, but also to measure and understand the effectiveness of the content we serve to you and others.


If you provide consent, we may also use the data to keep you informed of our training courses, conferences or any other services.


We may also use aggregate anonymous information and statistics for the purposes of monitoring website usage in order to help us to develop our website and our services.

We may from time to time appoint service providers, such as IT support, printer/copier service managers and other such parties, to provide services to us (“data processors”). This may involve disclosing your personal data to them to enable it to be processed for a purpose which is consistent with this privacy policy. We will ensure that any appointments of data processors on our behalf will comply with the Data Protection legislation.

We may be forced to disclose information by the government or other law enforcement agencies or in connection with the investigation of unlawful activities. These, therefore, are exceptions to our policy of maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of your personal information.

Except as explained above, we will not disclose your personal data to any third parties for any other purpose.

You can change your communication preferences at any time by contacting us directly.


3. Cookies and other information-gathering technologies
