How We Collect and Use InformationWe collect the following types of information about you:
Information you provide us directly
We ask for certain information such as your name and e-mail address when you correspond with us. We may also retain any messages you send through the Service, and may collect information you provide in User Content you post to the Service. We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Service.
When you access the Service by or through a mobile device, we may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store “location data,” which may include GPS coordinates (e.g. latitude and/or longitude) or similar information regarding the location of your mobile device. Some features of the Service, particularly location-based services, may not function properly if use or availability of location data is impaired or disabled. We do not associate any stored location data with individual users.
We may directly collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools and services, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service. These tools collect information sent by your browser or mobile device, including the pages you visit and other information that assists us in improving the Service. We collect and use this analytics information in aggregate form such that it cannot reasonably be manipulated to identify any particular individual user.
Cookie information (Website only)
When you visit the Service using a web browser, we may send one or more cookies — a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters — to your computer that lets TidesPro help enhance your navigation through the site, such as by remembering the prediction locations you most recently accessed, and displaying them under “My Recent Sites”. A cookie may also convey information to us about how you use the Service (e.g., the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take on the Service), and allow us or our business partners to track your usage of the Service over time. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser’s directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features of the Service may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.
Server log file information
Log file information is automatically reported by your browser or mobile device each time you access the Service. When you use our Service, our servers automatically record certain log file information. These server logs may include anonymous information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, application information, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information.
If you access our Service through an App, we may collect crash logs if something goes wrong in the application as you are using it. The crash information may contain data about how you were using the app at the time it encountered an error. We use this information to improve the application, and do not use it for any marketing purposes or associate it with any of the other data we collect.
Sharing of Your Information
We will not rent or sell your information to third parties outside TidesPro and its group companies (including any parent, subsidiaries and affiliates) without your consent, except as noted below:
What happens in the event of a change of control
We may buy or sell/divest/transfer the company (including any shares in the company), or any combination of its products, services, assets and/or businesses. Your information such as customer names and email addresses, User Content and other user information related to the Service may be among the items sold or otherwise transferred in these types of transactions. We may also sell, assign or otherwise transfer such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, acquisitions, bankruptcies, dissolutions, reorganizations, liquidations, similar transactions or proceedings involving all or a portion of the company.
Instances where we are required to share your information
Ads (Website only)
For example, Google uses DART cookies in order to deliver ads to you through the Service. Google's use of the DART cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to you based on your visit to the Service and previous websites that you may have visited. Other advertising networks also use similar cookies, clear gifs, or other mechanisms to deliver targeted advertising to you through the Service. You may opt out of personalized advertising by visiting www.aboutads.info.
Please note that an advertiser may ask TidesPro to show an ad to a certain audience of Users (e.g., based on demographics or other interests). In that situation, TidesPro or our Partners determines the target audience and TidesPro serves the advertising to that audience and only provides anonymous data to the advertiser. If you respond to such an ad, the advertiser or ad server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach.
To enhance your user experience or help us improve and measure our effectiveness, TidesPro may embed code from third parties on the Service. Examples of such parties may include Google, Twitter, and others. These third parties may collect information about you including IP address, cookies in ways TidesPro does not control.
Ads (Apps only)
We no longer display third-party advertisements in our Apps. We only display ads for our TidesPro Premium service, which unlocks features in our Apps. There is no tracking or data collection associated with these ads.
How We Store and Protect Your Information
Storage and Processing
Keeping your information safe
TidesPro cares about the security of your information, and uses commercially reasonable safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of all information collected through the Service. To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to your email communications from TidesPro, at all times. However, TidesPro cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to TidesPro or guarantee that information on the Service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed. Your privacy settings may also be affected by changes to the functionality of third party sites and services that you add to the TidesPro Service, such as social networks. TidesPro is not responsible for the functionality or security measures of any third party.
Compromise of information
In the event that any information under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, TidesPro will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and where appropriate, notify those individuals whose information may have been compromised and take other steps, in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.

Please refer to your browser’s technical information for instructions on how to delete and disable cookies, and other tracking/recording tools. Depending on your type of device, it may not be possible to delete or disable tracking mechanisms on your mobile device.
