Data we collect as a Trade Manufacturer depends on who our services are used by and how they wish to work with Barton Marine. This Policy refers to those using our services, interested business partners or customers, prospects and suppliers. This policy is not applicable to third party users, their websites, products or services. If you disagree with practices described in this policy, then you should take all precautions to remove yourself from using our website, services or products.
When data is received from a business or individual, sometimes an "account" is created as requested by that entity. Sometimes we receive information or data sent to us electronically, and that provided data is stored as requested by the sender, or required for future use. We also receive data from partners in the business such as banking or finance institutions, raw material suppliers, service providers, government, regulatory entities or legal providers, and that information is stored for historical reference or ongoing use. This data is essential information for basic business practices which allows Barton to keep its products and services provided in a safe and regulated manner. All credit or financial information received is only used for the purpose of providing the services requested by the sender.
Data Collection at Barton Marine involves two approaches. Personal Data involves reasonable and specific use of data to identify individuals as customers or suppliers for the business processes required and requested. This can include a person's name, addresses, phone, contact details, or if a financial transaction is requested, it may involve taking credit card information solely for the purpose of that single transaction. "Other Data" which is collected and does not fall into the category of Personal Data, can be acquired in multiple ways including collection from our Website by interested parties, responses to our advertisements or promotions, transaction data from basic business responses, purchases or projects. Company data is part of Other Data collection and is used and kept for the express requirements of business exercises or transactions.
Barton Marine and our service providers use Personal Data to provide services, detect and prevent fraud, diminish financial losses or other harm to users, customers, suppliers or to Barton Marine. We also use Personal Data at times to promote services, sell, improve or design products or systems for the benefit or interest of our customers and suppliers.

For safety, legal or regulatory enforcement purposes, Personal Data may be shared within the confines of the applicable laws that regulate such transfers of information. This may include protecting Barton Marine's rights, privacy, safety or property. It may also include the legal transfer of Data with third parties in the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of our business, assets or stock, which may include any bankruptcy or similar proceedings.
