General Terms

As a Vendor on FishingBooker you will be provided with the Customer’s personally-identifiable information when they book one of the trips you offer. Under the GDPR you are considered to be an independent controller, meaning that you exercise control over how you use the data you receive from us. You are responsible for complying with all data privacy laws that may apply to your jurisdiction. You must have a Privacy Policy that is compatible with ours, which can be found here, including our GDPR Privacy Notice.

When a Customer books a trip with you, you will receive certain information about the Customer, including their name, phone number, email and any other information shared between you and the Customer through IMs and the FishingBooker platform. You are only allowed to use this information for the purposes of conducting a fishing trip. You are not allowed to post this information publicly or disclose, share or sell it to anyone without the Customer’s consent. You are not allowed to use this information for unsolicited marketing or commercial purposes. If you do disclose this information you may be held responsible under data privacy laws that apply in your jurisdiction. If you work with any affiliates who handle the Customer’s personally-identifiable information on your behalf, you must ensure that they are also aware of this Data Processing Addendum and of your obligations according to Data Processing Laws.

If you and FishingBooker are found to be joint data controllers, and if FishingBooker is sued, fined or otherwise incurs expenses because of any action on your part, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold FishingBooker (and its employees, agents, consultants, subsidiaries, partners, affiliates and licensors) harmless against any claims, costs, losses, damages, liabilities, judgements and expenses (including reasonable lawyer fees) in connection with your processing of the Customer’s personally-identifiable information. You may expect reasonable cooperation, assistance and information from us and we expect the same from you so we may both comply with all data privacy laws.

Customer information may only be retained for so long as it is necessary to satisfy all applicable lawful bases for processing the fishing trip. If a Customer makes a deletion request for any of their personally-identifiable information, you are obliged to delete such information and to work with us to ensure any and all such information has been deleted.
