How We Share Information
We may share Personal and Device Identifiable Information with our affiliates and other third parties who require such information to assist us with professional, consulting, marketing, or communications services. We allow third parties access to such information to perform specific tasks at our instruction for us or on our behalf. The Personal Information you provide to us when making a reservation will be shared with the applicable marina for the purposes of determining whether it can accommodate your reservation request.
We may also disclose Personal Information as required by law or regulation, in response to a court order, subpoena, or request by law enforcement, in connection with a merger, acquisition, or other transaction involving IGY or its affiliates, or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to protect our property, assert our legal rights, or protect the safety or rights of others.
