DolphinSpiritofHawaii.com is committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to our website. This policy defines the minimum online privacy requirements for our company site.


A link to this privacy policy and any additional agency-specific privacy policy is also required on every page of a web site that collects personal information or incorporates an e-mail or other form where users may submit questions or comments.


3.1. Personal Information:
3.1.1 When information is Collected
This website does not collect or retain personally identifiable information unless a person voluntarily:

Participates in an activity that asks for information (i.e. sending an email, participating in a survey or filling in an online form). This information will only be used to respond to the person’s request and to analyze trends. A message may be redirected to another company employee or person who is in a better position to respond.

Uses an online service or transaction that requires collection of personally identifiable information.

Choosing not to participate in an activity or service that requests personal information will in no way effect a visitor’s ability to access any other feature of DolphinSpiritofHawaii.com's website.

If personal information is requested on the web site or volunteered by the user, state law and the federal Privacy Act of 1974 may protect it. However, this information is a public record once it is provided, and may be subject to public inspection and copying if not protected by federal or state law.

3.1.2 Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 2001
Websites directed to children under 13, that knowingly collect information from children, must comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 2001. However, visitors are cautioned that the state has no way of determining the age of a person volunteering personally identifiable information online or by email. As such, this information will be treated the same as information given by an adult, and may be subject to public access.

3.1.3 Password Information
No representative of DolphinSpiritofHawaii.com will ever request a user to reveal their username, password or PIN. Under no circumstances should this information be shared with or disclosed to any other person.

3.1.4 Correcting Personal Information
Unless otherwise prohibited by state or federal law, rule or regulation, an individual may request correction of personally identifiable information. Persons concerned about information contained in their personal records should contact the custodian of that record, which is typically the organization that has collected the information

3.1.5 Public Disclosure of Information
It is important to understand that under applicable state and federal law, various forms of correspondence and other communications may be subject to public disclosure, especially if requested as part of an ongoing investigation by law enforcement or other legal proceedings.

3.2. Automatic Information
3.2.1 What is Captured
This website utilizes server logs and log analysis tools to create summary statistics about the use of the website and traffic analysis. These logs collect the Internet Protocol ("IP") address of all computers accessing the portal, and may collect other similar information about the computer’s network. Summary statistics are used for various purposes such as assessing what information is of most interest to users, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.

This data is not reported or used in any manner that would reveal personally identifiable information, and will not be released to any outside parties unless legally required to do so in connection with law enforcement investigations or other legal proceedings.

For a complete list of information collected, contact the webmaster@DolphinSpiritofHawaii.com.

3.2.2 Cookies
The Shopping Cart on our website uses a cookie to identify individual users. This cookies is used as a marker, which allows the shopping cart software to identifiy which 'cart' belongs to which user. The cookie does not transmit any user data to any third parties, and is an internal information tool required by the cart in order for it to function properly. Each cookie expires after 24 hours, so that if the user returns to complete an order after expiration of the cookie, the shopping cart will appear 'empty'.

3.3. Link Disclaimer

In order to make information available to visitors, the DolphinSpiritofHawaii.com provides links to web sites of other online stores, informational websites and useful organizations. A link does not constitute an endorsement of the content, viewpoint, policies, products or services of that web site.
