We respect your right to privacy.

We may disclose aggregate or non-personal information, such as demographic information, or statistical analyses. See Privacy Policy.

This policy explains how we use email addresses when provided, and may be amended, from time to time, without notice. To ensure that you have up-to-date information, please review this policy regularly as any amended policy will be updated on the site.

Upon consent, emails you receive could include news content, information on events sponsored by American Shipper or BlueWater Reporting, subscription renewal notices, information regarding your subscription, Daily e-Newsletters, and news related surveys. Users can subscribe through an online automated process should they wish to do so, but do so at their own discretion.

All emails will have a simple opt-out / un-subscribe process at the footer of each email, in compliance with Spam compliance rules.

Emails may include external links pertaining to a news story or sponsors. Users should note that clicking external links are done so at their own risk. Although this website only looks to include quality, safe and relevant external links, users should always adopt a policy of caution before clicking any external web links. The owners of this website cannot guarantee or verify the contents of any externally linked website, despite our best efforts. This website and its owners cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused by visiting any external links mentioned. See Privacy Policy.

Do we track whether users open our emails?

Our emails may contain a single, campaign-unique “web beacon pixel” to tell us whether our emails are opened and verify any clicks through to links or advertisements within the email. We may use this information for purposes including; determining which of our emails are more interesting to users, to query whether users who do not open our emails wish to continue receiving them and to inform our advertisers in aggregate how many users have clicked on their advertisements. The pixel will be deleted when you delete the email. If you do not wish the pixel to be downloaded to your device, you should select to receive emails from us in plain text rather than HTML.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Hayes Howard
CEO
