Collection of Information:
We collect and maintain personal information such as name, boat name and contact information, to inform DBYC members regarding club activities, events and programs sponsored by DBYC or in conjunction with other clubs. We also use such personal information to educate members regarding features and services of DBYC. Opt-out provisions for certain personal member information can be utilized by clicking on member profile on the DBYC website or by contacting the Membership Director. Anonymous demographic information is collected from non-members of the general public accessing public pages of our web site.
We may collect usage information (frequency of access) and demographic information, for members and non-member public users accessing DBYC’s website. DBYC aggregates this data to evaluate site traffic patterns, server usage and to improve existing services and features. For mobile devices, DBYC does not actively collect precise real time location of mobile devices, but depending upon the type of mobile device and personal settings, user IP address - which is a number automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet - browser, domain names, geographic location may be transmitted. We suggest you adjust the privacy settings on your mobile device if you do not wish this personal information to be transmitted.

o To support DBYC activities, back-office accounting and operational services;
o To defend or enforce DBYC by-laws, rules, policy or third-party legal requirements; and
o To protect the safety and security of members, staff or property.
Unless required to become a member of DBYC, for registration or participation in DBYC events, or to obtain services from DBYC, we suggest users exercise caution when volunteering personally identifiable or private information. Be prudent when communicating sensitive information via DBYC’s website. Although DBYC does not engage in this practice, personal information could be transferred to a third party without your knowledge. DBYC is not in a position to monitor and/or oversee these communications or to protect volunteered information via links or at third party sites.
DBYC may take photographs of its members during public events and may solicit photographs from our members of their participation in various DBYC member-only events. On occasion, DBYC may select quality photos for distribution via this website or other means. Photos taken in public settings during public events may include non-member guests. If you are included in a photograph and would prefer that it not be distributed, please contact our DBYC Rear Commodore to identify the photo and where you saw it. We will do our best to remove it from circulation.
