Disclosure of Personal Information

EBS uses third-party vendors to help us maintain and operate our Website and to operate our business and those vendors may receive your Personal Information for those purposes. EBS may also disclose Personal Information about you in connection with legal requirements, such as in response to a subpoena, governmental request, or investigation, or as otherwise required by law. In certain instances, we may agree to allow a vendor to use aggregated data about activity for general improvement or benchmarking purposes, generally in an anonymized or aggregate form.

We also may share your Personal Information with third-parties for any legitimate business purpose, or if we believe that the law requires us to do so, or to protect our property or the property of our affiliates. Additionally, in the event of a corporate restructuring (such as a sale, merger, or other transfer of some or all of our assets), we may share your Personal Information with a third party. We reserve the right to use or disclose any information in aggregate form, for any purpose, in our sole judgment.

OUR USE OF COOKIES AND OTHER SIMILAR TOOLS

The Website or third-party vendors that are used to operate the website may use “cookies” in order to administer the Website. A “cookie” is a small piece of data that can be sent by a Web server to your computer, which then may be stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies are useful in allowing more efficient login for users, tracking transaction histories, preserving information between sessions, and improving the functionality of a website. Some Web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer and Google Chrome may have features that can notify you when you receive a cookie or prevent cookies from being sent. If you disable cookies, however, you may not be able to use certain personalized functions of this Website. To find out more about cookies and how to block them or control their use by configuring your browser, you can visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

In addition to the use of cookies, we may use certain third-party services, such as Google Analytics, to help us analyze how people use the Website. We use this information to evaluate your and other users’ use of the Website, compile reports on Website activity, and provide other services relating to Website activity and Internet usage.

EBS may use this information we collect from you during your visit to the Website in order to analyze trends and administers our Website. For example, we may use information related to your use of the site to determine fluctuation of visitor numbers, to diagnose problems with our servers, and to improve user web experiences.

DATA RETENTION

EBS retains your Personal Information for as long as you subscribe to receive alerts from EBS and as long as is required to comply with applicable laws and regulations. Commercial and contract data may be retained longer to comply with applicable commercial laws.

CHOICE/OPT-OUT

When you submit your contact information, EBS may send you emails related to new updates and investment related updates. From time to time, EBS may also wish to send you other messages or updates about EBS and its activities.

You will also have regular opportunities to opt-out by following the instructions listed on EBS’s solicitation materials. Even if you opt-out of receiving news and related updates from EBS, we will send you transaction-related emails and respond to questions from you.

CHILDREN’S PRIVACY ON OUR WEBSITE

This Website is not directed to children under 13. We do not knowingly attempt to solicit or receive Personal Information from children under 13. If EBS discovers that it has received Personal Information from an individual reasonably believed to be under the age of 13, EBS will delete such information from its systems. If you are the parent or legal guardian and you believe we may have inadvertently collected Personal Information from a child under 13, please contact us to request the child’s information be deleted by contacting us at privacy@eagleships.com.

EXTERNAL LINKS

The Website may contain links to other websites, including those of advertising or third-party content providers.

CONSENT OF DATA TRANSFER OF NON-U.S. RESIDENTS

EBS is located in the United States, Singapore, and Germany, and our data is generally stored and transferred between those countries. However, as an international shipping company, we have operations around the world and certain data may be used or shared in other countries consistent with our international operations. Additionally, EBS may use vendors such as Google to store data and those vendors may store data in other countries. Data protection laws in these countries may be different from those of your country of residence. If you voluntarily submit Personal Information to us while located or residing in a country outside the United States, you understand that you are voluntarily agreeing to the use and processing of such information as provided under this Privacy Policy, including transfer of your information to the United States, a jurisdiction which may not offer the same framework for the protection of Personal Information as the jurisdiction in which you are located.

CHANGES TO THE PRIVACY POLICY

EBS reserves the right to modify or supplement this Privacy Policy at any time, in its sole discretion, so please check back frequently. The “Last Updated” date will be updated when changes to this Privacy Policy are made.

Further, to the extent the GDPR is implicated, where we use your Personal Information in relation to improvement, development, or marketing of our products or services, for reasons of safety and security, or to satisfy regulatory requirements, other than in connection with our agreement or request, we do this on the basis of our (or a third party’s) legitimate interests or with your consent, as required.

  • receive copies of the Personal Information we maintain about you
  • update and correct inaccuracies in your Personal Information
  • object to the processing of your Personal Information, request portability
