Your Privacy. Our privacy policy details how Your information is used and processed when You use the Services. By using the Services, You agree that we can use and process Your information in the ways set out in our Privacy Policy. Both Ocean Recovery Group and account holders (typically, sellers) process users of the Services’ Personal Information and are therefore considered separate and independent data controllers of Personal Information under EU law. That means that each party is responsible for the Personal Information it processes in providing the Services. For example, if a seller accidentally discloses a buyer’s name and email address when fulfilling another buyer’s order, the seller, not Ocean Recovery Group, will be responsible for that unauthorized disclosure. If, however, Ocean Recovery Group and sellers are found to be joint data controllers of buyers’ personal information, and if Ocean Recovery Group is sued, fined, or otherwise incurs expenses because of something that You did as a joint data controller of Personal Information, You agree to indemnify Ocean Recovery Group for the expenses (including legal fees) it occurs in connection with Your processing of Personal Information.

Privacy Policy. We are committed to communicating with you in a professional manner and protecting your confidential information. We use the information you provide (e.g. name, address, phone number, email, agreement to receive newsletter/sales offers etc.) to contact you to share information about our (products/services). We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request. This company does not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others. Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future with news about our company or information about our services. If you subscribe to our newsletter, you may unsubscribe at any time, either by using the unsubscribe link on the newsletter or contacting us via the email address given on our website.
