If you arrive at a tide prediction page on the site as a result of a Google search, your visit counts towards the 'Popular Locations' list in the main menu. No identifying information is generated by this process.
Analytics & Advertising:
In compliance with GDPR and EU Cookie Consent requirements, we only show non-personalised adverts to visitors from the EU.
If you choose to register as a member, we will ask for your given name, family name and email address and store that information. We will generate a password for you and store a one-way hash of that password. We also create a 'subscription end date' which initially contains '0000-00-00'.
As a consequence of registering you are assigned a unique numerical ID. This ID is used to link other items of data to your account.
As part of being a member you have the option to store addresses linked to your account.
Members who mark a tidal prediction location as a 'favourite' will create a record in the database linking that location to their account.
If you choose to start a website subscription we will update your 'subscription end date' accordingly. We use this record of payments for accounting purposes. We also use the date to send you a single automatic reminder via email a week before your subscription ends. Subscriptions are not renewed automatically.
Subscribers who browse tidal predictions beyond the free 7-day limit will have those page views recorded and linked to their account. We record the month and the number of views within that month. We do not record which page you have visited.
Twice a year we use this information to calculate a total number of page views in order to meet our licensing obligations with UKHO.
The site does not maintain any distinct list of email addresses for commercial activity, however we may use the email address on your account to contact you with important information regarding the site.
