Cookies are small data files that a web site you visit may save on your hard drive. They usually include an anonymous unique identifier. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive or pass on computer viruses.
You can remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but in some cases doing so may prevent trusteddocks.com from fully functioning. One type of cookie, known as a “persistent” cookie, is set once you’ve logged in to your trusteddocks.com account. The next time you visit the trusteddocks.com website, the persistent cookie will allow us to recognize you as an existing Member so you will not need to log in before using the Services, to display the Live Map as you last configured it etc.
We also use Google Analytics to help us understand how users use our web site and our mobile applications. Google Analytics cookies do not provide trusteddocks with any personally identifiable information. They can tell us things like how you arrived at the trusteddocks site, if you have visited the site before, how long you stay on the site, and which pages on the site you visited. They can also provide us with general information about where in the world a user may be located. This information helps us understand how people use our site and our products, and it gives us information about the kind of experience people have on our site and with our products, all of which helps us learn how to make the trusteddocks experience even better.

In addition to cookies, we are utilizing browser local storage technology to store your preferences and make your user experience more consistent. Local storage is a persistent type of storage, that provides similar functionality to cookies, but its contents are not transmitted across the Internet, like cookies are.
Like cookies, you can control how local storage works on your browser settings on a global or website specific manner. Disabling the local storage functionality on your browser will result in loss of functionality of the map and other features of the website.
Social Media Features
Our website uses social media features (“Social Features”) provided by companies and services such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+ to enable you to share information via these channels. The Social Features are identified on our website by these companies’ respective logos. These cookies are owned and controlled by third parties, and therefore the third parties – and not trusteddocks.com – are responsible for their use. As such, we can’t guarantee that we have listed every cookie you might get from a third party since a third party could change these cookies at any time as their needs change.
When you visit a page on the trusteddocks website that contains Social Features, your browser establishes a direct connection to the applicable social network’s servers. The Social Features provide the social networks with the information that you have accessed on the trusteddocks website, and, if you are logged into the social network, your visit may be logged to your account on that service. For example, if you click the Facebook “Like” button, that information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. Even if you are not logged into the social network, or click on a Social Feature on the trusteddocks site, there is still a possibility that a Social Feature can transmit your IP address to the social network.
From time to time, we may want to contact you with information about product announcements, software updates and special offers.

Data Storage and Security
trusteddocks.com is committed to protecting the security of your information and takes reasonable precautions to protect it. However, Internet data transmissions, whether wired or wireless, cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and as a result, we cannot ensure the security of information you transmit to us; accordingly, you acknowledge that you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your data transmission, we make all commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems:
Your trusteddocks.com password is protected by encryption so that only you have access to it. Your personal information and data stored in our systems is protected by various physical, electronic and procedural safeguards. It is housed in a secure facility, and trusteddocks and our hosting partners restrict physical and network access to this facility to select trained staff. We regularly evaluate our technologies, facilities, procedures and potential risks to maintain the security and privacy of our users’ data.
Certain trusteddocks Services support the use of standard SSL encryption to protect data transmissions. However, this is not a guarantee that such data transmissions cannot be accessed, altered or deleted due to firewall or other security software failures.
As trusteddocks.com evolves, we may need to update this Policy to keep pace with changes in the Service and laws applicable to us and you; we will, however, always maintain our commitment to respect your privacy.
We will ask for your consent to such changes in writing. If you disagree with any changes in this Policy and do not wish your information to be subject to the revised Policy, you will need to close your account before the new Policy becomes effective.
