HalSail FAQ

How does HalSail protect my privacy and comply with the General Data Protection Regulation?

HalSail takes the protection of your data very seriously. It stores its data in the UK and is careful to comply with the UK General Data Protection Regulations. To that end it only collects the minimum amount of information needed to compute and display your sailing results.

The EU has agreed that the UK General Data Protection Regulations are adequate to meet their General Data Protection Regulations. Details of the agreement are on the EU website and on the UK Information Commissioner's website .

The personal data HalSail can collect and store is:

  • The name and email address of each registered user. Registered users are those people who can log into an account on HalSail. HalSail does not collect personal data when anybody looks at results without logging in.
  • The name of the owner, helm and crew of each boat, if that information has been entered by a registered user. Note that none of these is essential to compute results, but storing and displaying them makes the results more meaningful.
  • The email address and telephone number through which a boat can be contacted, if that information has been entered by a registered user. This is not displayed to anybody who browses HalSail without logging in, but it is available to registered users for boats in their own account.

In each case, HalSail provides the mechanism by which the personal data is collected, processed, stored and displayed. HalSail does not decide whose data is stored. That is up to the registered users of HalSail.

HalSail stores your data on computers in the UK. It does not pass your data to third parties, except by displaying results containing the names of owners, helms and crews of boats.

As a user of HalSail you have the following rights:

  • The right to see any data about yourself.
  • The right to correct anything that is wrong.
  • The right to have your data deleted.

To exercise any of the above rights, in the first instance you should contact the registered user who put your data into HalSail.

If you do not know who put your data into HalSail, you can apply to HalSail for that information by sending a message through our enquiry form.
