Waterplay may share information in certain instances with third parties (e.g. partners, agencies/dealers or third party service providers), to determine site usage and perform statistical analyses, and for the purposes of servicing your sales and customer service needs. To the extent third parties assist us in the provision of these services, those third parties have no independent rights to your data, and have agreed to adhere to this Privacy Policy or maintain same or similar policies of their own.

Waterplay may use this information to:

  • Respond to customer service requests, questions and concerns.
  • Send you requested product or service information.
  • Keep you informed about special offers, new products and services of Waterplay and selected third parties.

  • Customize your experience, including targeting our services and offerings to your specific interests.

In certain situations, Waterplay may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

Where required by law (e.g., to comply with a subpoena, warrant, court order, or legal process served on Waterplay), and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, avoid litigation, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, and/or respond to a government request. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that such disclosure should be made for reasons of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance.

 

Information Sharing with Service Providers / Agency Partners


Waterplay shares personal information with certain companies that perform services on our behalf (e.g. agency partners or dealers). We only share the personal information which is necessary for them to perform those services. We require any company with which we may share personal information to protect that data in a manner consistent with this policy and to limit the use of such personal information to the performance of services for Waterplay.
