When does GetMyBoat place cookies?

We use cookies on our site and mobile applications. Any browser visiting these sites will receive cookies from us.

What types of cookies does GetMyBoat use?

We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to GetMyBoat or interact with our services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by GetMyBoat when you return to one of our sites or a partner site that uses our services (for example, our sharing or job application buttons). Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).

What are cookies used for?

Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit GetMyBoat, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that’s in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with GetMyBoat faster and more secure.

We are also not responsible for the condition of any boats listed on the Website or the compliance with laws, rules or regulations that may be applicable to boat operation, maintenance, rental or charter in any jurisdiction. Renters should satisfy themselves that any boat rented complies with any legal or safety requirements for such rental, and Renters and Members have exclusive responsibility for such compliance.

What is Do Not Track (DNT)?

DNT is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has been working with industry groups, Internet browsers, technology companies, and regulators to develop a DNT technology standard. While some progress has been made, it has been slow. No standard has been adopted to this date. As such, GetMyBoat does not generally respond to “do not track” signals.
