What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
We store the information you supply to us, for four weeks, for customer service purposes. After your question or comment is answered, we will never send you marketing e-mails nor hassle you in any way.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
All data sharing is done offline. Once your passport or national ID card is printed out, it is presented to the fishing authorities of the Canary Islands. The government of the Canary Islands then adds your name and surname in their fishing licence database, to generate the licence. Passport copies, application forms, and consent forms are stored in their facilities in paper format.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
A copy of your licence and proof of payment of fees is stored for 3 years. This is done to give a better service to our clients. In case they lose their licence, we will happily e-mail another one, and they can print it out.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data
As soon as we receive your documents, they’re printed out. Right after that, all e-mails with passport and other document files are deleted. The files are deleted from our computers, and the recycle bin is also emptied out.
What data breach procedures we have in place
We don’t store any personal documents anywhere, since the files are deleted soon after being printed out.
