In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

Just like many websites you visit, Global Underwater Explorers uses Google Analytics to help monitor and improve our websites.

What is Google Analytics and why are we using it?

Google Analytics logs information like what website you were on before you got to, what pages you visit, how long you stay on our site, and what kind of computer you’re using. This information allows us to better understand the kind of people who come to our site and what content they’re reading, enabling us to make more educated decisions about design and writing.

That sounds a little personal!

All data collected is anonymous. In these reports, no personally identifying data is included, so while we will have access to beneficial information about our users, we’ll never know which information came from you. All of our activity falls within the bounds of the Google Analytics Terms of Service.
