We, the “Port Authority of the Cayman Islands” (“PACI”), provide this website as a public service to our users.
Non-personal information is data about usage and service operation that is not directly associated with a specific personal identity. We may collect and analyse non-personal information to evaluate how visitors use the PACI website.
PACI may gather aggregate information, which refers to information your computer automatically provides to us and that cannot be tied back to you as a specific individual. Examples include the pages viewed, time spent at our website, and Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. For example, when you request a page from our site, our servers log your IP address to create aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns and for purposes of system administration.
Every time you request or download a file from the website, PACI may store data about these events and your IP address in a log file. PACI may use this information to analyse trends, administer the website and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

If you choose to reject cookies, certain of the functions and conveniences of our website may not work properly, and you may be unable to use those of the PACI services that require registration in order to participate, or you will have to re-register each time you visit our site.

The PACI website may use web beacons to collect non-personal information about your use of our web site and the web sites of selected sponsors or members, your use of special promotions or newsletters, and other activities. The information collected by web beacons allows us to statistically monitor how many people are using our web site and selected sponsors’ sites; how many people open our emails; and for what purposes these actions are being taken. Our web beacons are not used to track your activity outside of our website or those of our sponsors. The Operators do not link non-personal information from web beacons to personally identifiable information without your permission.
Personal information is information that is associated with your name or personal identity. PACI uses personal information to better understand your needs and interests and to provide you with better service. On some of the PACI web pages, you may be able to request information, subscribe to mailing lists, participate in online discussions, collaborate on documents, provide feedback, submit information into registries, register for events, apply for membership, or join technical committees or working groups. The types of personal information you provide to us on these pages may include name, address, phone number, e-mail address, user IDs, passwords, billing information, or credit card information.
Information you provide on our membership applications is used to create a member profile. The PACI website members may be automatically added to our mailing lists. By providing us with your personal information on the membership application, you expressly consent to our storing, processing, and using your information for these purposes.
We may use non-personal data that is aggregated for reporting about the PACI website usability, performance, and effectiveness. It may be used to improve the experience, usability, and content of the site.
Credit card information may be collected to facilitate membership applications; or if you purchase a service from our website, such information will not be kept longer than necessary for providing the services requested. Credit card numbers are used only for processing payment and are not used for other purposes. Payment processing services may be provided by a third-party payment service, and a management company external to PACI may provide support for the financial activities of the process. PACI may share your personal information with its partners to facilitate these transactions.
If you are a registered member of our website, you should be aware that some items of your personal information are stored in our databases and retains information about your name, e-mail address, company affiliation (if an organisational member), and such other personal address and identifying data as you choose to supply. If you do not want your personal information collected and used by the PACI website, please do not visit the PACI website or apply for membership of the PACI website.
PACI is committed to keeping the personal information of our members accurate. All the information you have submitted to us can be verified and changed. In order to do this, please email us a request. We may provide members with online access to their own personal profiles, enabling them to update or delete information at any time. To protect our members’ privacy and security, we also may take reasonable steps to verify identity, such as a user ID and password, before granting access to modify personal profile data. Certain areas of the PACI website may limit access to specific individuals through the use of passwords or other personal identifiers; a password prompt is your indication that a members-only resource is being accessed.
PACI makes every effort to protect the personal information of users of the website by using firewalls and other security measures on its servers. No server, however, is 100% secure, and you should take this into account when submitting personal or confidential information about yourself on any website, including this one. PACI assumes no liability for the interception, alteration, or misuse of the information you provide. You alone are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please use care when you access this website and provide personal information.
