When you are asked to provide personal data, you may decline, but if you choose not to provide data that is necessary for Northrop & Johnson to provide a service, you may not be able to use that service or get more information on a particular product for sale or charter.

Name and contact details: We collect your first and last name, email address, postal address, phone number, company name, job title, and similar other contact data.

This data is collected to enable us constantly improve our service, whilst ensuring that you are only sent the information that you want, and like to engage with.
We also collect the information you agree to share with us, such as feedback and market research, or questions and information you provide for customer support.
Northrop & Johnson uses the data we collect to operate our business and provide you with the services we offer, which includes using data to improve our services and personalize your experiences.
We may also use the data to communicate with you, for example, informing you about your account and product or service information.
Northrop & Johnson uses the data we collect for three basic purposes, described in more detail below: (1) to operate our business and provide (including improving and personalizing) the services we offer, (2) to send communications, including promotional communications, and (3) to potentially show advertising in our own products.
In carrying out these processes, we combine data that we collect to give you a more seamless, consistent and personalized experience. For example, we may use the yachts you have viewed on the “FOR SALE” section of our website to deliver more relevant yachts for sale listings in our emails to you. However, to enhance privacy, we have built in technologies and procedural safeguards designed to prevent certain data combinations. For further information see 'How does Northrop & Johnson keep my personal information secure?'
Providing and improving our products and services. We use data to provide and improve the products and services we offer and to perform essential business operations. This includes operating the products and services, maintaining and improving the performance of the products and services, developing new features, conducting research and providing customer support. Examples of such uses include the following:
Communications. We use data we collect to communicate with you and personalize our communications with you. For example, we may contact you by phone or email to notify you of changes to your account, let you know about security updates or privacy updates, invite you to participate in a survey, provide you with important information relating to a purchase or tell you that you need to take an action to activate your account. Additionally, you can sign up to email subscriptions and choose whether you would like to receive promotional and marketing communications from Northrop & Johnson, by email, telephone or post.

We use appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect the personal information that we collect and process about you. The measures we use are designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing your personal information.
Although Northrop & Johnson makes every effort to preserve users' privacy, it may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein it has a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on its websites. Owing to Northrop & Johnson policy of continuous development, the right is reserved to change specifications, prices or any other details at any time.
In the event that Northrop & Johnson goes through a business transition, such as a merger, an acquisition by another company or selling a portion of its assets, users' personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred. If, as a result of a business transition, a user's personally identifiable information is used in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, the user is advised to review these terms and to unsubscribe (see below) if the terms have changed unsatisfactorily.
This website contains links to other websites. Please be aware that Northrop & Johnson is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other websites. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the website under the Northropandjohnson.com domain.
Northrop & Johnson reserves the right to change or amend these website terms and conditions without prior notice.
Your personal information may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than the country in which you are resident. These countries may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your country.
Specifically, our Website servers are located in the US, and our group companies and third-party service providers and partners operate in the UK and Asia. This means that when we collect your personal information we may process it in any of these countries.
However, we have taken appropriate safeguards to require that your personal information will remain protected in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements).
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
We will also retain personal information we collect from you when you have given us permission to do so.
You have the following data protection rights:
We may update this Privacy Notice from time to time in response to changing legal, technical or business developments. When we update our Privacy Notice, we will take appropriate measures to inform you, consistent with the significance of the changes we make. We will obtain your consent to any material Privacy Notice changes if and where this is required by applicable data protection laws.
