Asbestos Ships makes respecting your privacy an utmost priority by keeping any and all information collected at this site strictly confidential.

A more detailed explanation about how we safeguard your personal information is described below.
We collect information about our users in 2 ways:
When you fill out the contact form on this website, we will ask you to provide some personal information (such as e-mail address, name, phone number, zip code and state). Further, if chat is available through this site, you may be asked to provide information if you participate in an online chat.
DO NOT SUBMIT ANY CONFIDENTIAL, PROPRIETARY OR SENSITIVE PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION (e.g. Social Security Number; date of birth; drivers license number; or credit card, bank account or other financial information) (collectively, "Sensitive Information"). If you submit any Sensitive Information, you do so at your own risk and we will not be liable to you or responsible for consequences of your submission. Information that you provide to us through the contact form or an online chat will be used so that we may respond to your inquiry. We may also use information you provide to us to communicate with you in the future. If you do not wish to receive such communications, you may opt out (unsubscribe).
When you visit our website, we may track information about your visit and store that information in web server logs, which are records of the activities on our sites. The servers automatically capture and save the information electronically. Examples of the information we may collect include:
The information we collect in our web server logs helps us administer the site, analyze its usage, protect the website and its content from inappropriate use and improve the user's experience.

We take certain appropriate security measures to help protect your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will always be unable to defeat our security measures.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (e.g, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
