By submitting your information you agree to this transfer, storing and processing. This is in compliance with the French Information and Civil Liberties law of 6th January 1978 and directive 95/46 CE. In our case, this information transfer is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract, for example payment of directory or marketing fees.  Third parties to whom we disclose personal data are required by law and contractual undertakings to keep personal data confidential and secure and to use and disclose it for purposes that a reasonable person would consider appropriate in the circumstances, in compliance with all applicable legislation.

Our website uses a security system that protects your information from unauthorised use. However, as no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100 % secure, we can not take responsibility for any unauthorised access or loss of personal information that is beyond our control. 

Although Antibes Yachting makes every effort to preserve users’ privacy, we may need to disclose your personal data to third parties if required in order to comply with legal or regulatory obligations or safeguard public interest (e.g. the prevention or detection of fraud or crime).
