Data Privacy
Privacy and Data Protection:

Dive-Logs Ltd are committed to protecting your privacy. We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully (in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and General Data Protection Regulations 2018). We collect information about you for 2 reasons: firstly, to process your order and secondly to provide you with the best service possible.

Dive-Logs Ltd will be what’s known as the ‘Controller’ of the personal data you provide to us. If you use our site for purchasing stock products we only collect basic personal data about you which does not include any special types of information or location based information. This does however include name, address, email, IP address, and phone number. If you use our online dive log service then you may also supply location based information about your past or future dives. Additionally, if you use some of our designers to input your own content for the bespoke products we make just for you (for example Scubatags), you may enter any type of personal information you see fit for the eventual design and it's use.

Why we need your data

We use the basic personal data you provide to enable us to process and fulfil your order and to notify you of the status of your request. We also ask for your telephone number which enables us to contact you urgently if there is a problem with your order.

If you have given explicit consent in advance, we will ocasioanally send you marketing emails about new products and services.

If you sign up to our online Dive Log service then we use your basic personal data plus any location based diving data to provide your dive log service.

If you provide any other form of personal data to be incorporated into a bespoke product, then we use that data solely for the purpose of production.

And finally, if you use our Scubatag contact service then any personal contact data you see fit to provide will be used to enable us to contact you in the event your scubatag is lost and found but for no other purpose.
