What Kind of Personal Information Oceanblue Collects
The privacy and security of your information is important to us. We give you the option of signing up to receive email updates. If you choose to register with us, we require you to give us your e-mail address. In addition, the website collects contact information in connection with travel, training and other events that require registration. We take care to protect the online data you submit to us when using the website and store such information in a secure database.
Additionally, some information about your server address, web browser, and computer system are automatically transmitted to our web servers so that we can operate and improve the website. For example, we track the number of people who view each page, the order in which pages are viewed, and other information to learn which features are the most popular and to refine our design and marketing efforts. We collect and store such information on an aggregated (collected) basis.
As part of the website operation, we reserve the right to collect automatically and track:
· The home server, IP addresses and domain names, e-mail addresses, type of computer, and type of web browser you are using while you visit the website;
· Information regarding what pages of the website you choose to access; and
· Other information volunteered by you at the website.
How We Use Your Personal Information
· Email Sign-Up: When you provide us with your email address we will use that information to contact you by email about events, classes and travel.
· Aggregated Uses of Information:
o IP addresses are used to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer the website. In addition, your IP address is used to gather broad demographic information.

The security of all personally identifying information associated with our users is of great concern to us.
