Permanently increasing demands on the interactivity, comfort, flexibility and content experience-factor of Internet pages, actually benefit you in your daily use of them. The Internet website of Martin-Yachts, like the majority of providers, wants to offer you this commercially available standard in the Internet. That requires the use of JavaScript, a programming language, which not only offers the advantages mentioned above, but there are also possible risks that need to be considered.

Fundamentally, we guarantee that the JavaScript programmed by us and used in our Internet pages poses no dangers to your personal computer or your data.

In theory, you could indeed protect yourself against these potential dangers in the Internet, by deactivating the JavaScript function in your browser. In this case, however, a comfortable, rapid navigation, and, in some cases, even the viewing of many Internet pages would no longer be possible for you.

As a result, we recommend that you do protect yourself against the dangers of the Internet, by taking reasonable protective measures of your own:


We do not use any ActiveX in our Internet website.

If you as a user, however, personally change the standard configurations for ActiveX or Scripting in the options menu of your browser, it can, under certain circumstances, result in a misleading message in some browsers. Due to a wrong implementation in some browsers (among others, some versions of the Internet-Explorer), while looking at PDFs, flash or other secure multimedia files with Plugins, an incorrect message may appear, that you are downloading script elements or ActiveX. You can click on the OK button to fade out the message. However, this message can occur repeatedly, depending on the browser configurations and the Internet page.


We use the modern and secure Flash technology, for ergonomic and design reasons, to create specific types of content.


We use the modern and secure PDF technology in some pages, to enable downloading various items and route maps, which you can then print immediately with the free software from Adobe.


We use the modern and secure PHP technology, for our contact form and Tell a friend. Thus, we can reply faster to your requests.

Our Privacy Policy in Online Media
Guidelines on the privacy policy of the Martin Shipyard

Details on the privacy policy of the Martin-Yachts website

The Martin Shipyard respects your privacy concerns, and would like you to feel confident during your visit to our Internet pages. We are, therefore, committed to protecting your private information.

Protecting your privacy during the processing of personal data is an important concern for us. The Martin Shipyard, therefore, processes the personal data, which is collected during a visit to our Internet pages, fundamentally, in accordance with the legal regulations that both respect and protect your privacy.

We have taken both technical and organisational measures, which guarantee that the regulations governing data protection are complied with on our part and that of our external service suppliers.

In addition, it is important to us that you are informed, at any time, about what information we collect, when we collect it, and how we may use such information. Therefore, in the following statement we would like to briefly explain the Martin Shipyard's policy on data protection, how we protect your data, and what significance this has for you when using our services.

Personally identifiable information / personal information

Personally identifiable information is information that can be used explicitly for the purpose of establishing your identity. Such information includes your correct name, e-mail address, postal address, telephone number etc.

Pseudonym data / anonymous log file data

Information, which is not directly associated with your real identity, such as, the profile or number of users of an Internet website, does not fall under the category of personal information

When you visit our Internet pages, our web servers store, for example, the IP address of your Internet service provider, the Internet page from which you have visited us, the Internet pages that you visit on our website, as well as the date and time of the visit. Furthermore, your operating system, the browser name and the browser version you are using are stored in the log file of the web server.

This data is evaluated anonymously, for statistical purposes and for the improvement of our website.

This non-personally identifiable data is stored separately from the personal information, on safeguarded internal systems, and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about any individual person. No connections are made between associated personal information and non-personally identifiable information. Similarly, the use of associated personal information with non-personally identifiable information does not take place. Due to this separation of non-personally identifiable / general statistical data and personal information, your privacy is protected at all times.

Collecting personal information

Thus, your visit to our information pages in the Internet is recorded as an anonymous visit for statistical purposes, and does not include any personal information. Therefore, as a rule, you can avail of the information on offer in our website without disclosing your identity.

Your personal data is only stored, when you voluntarily choose to submit such personal information. This may be the case, for example, with registration (online newsletter etc.), a survey, and a prize contest, or with your inquiries and suggestions, as well as requests made to us via contact form or e-mail.

In these cases, it is at your discretion to provide us with your name and other personal information (such as date of birth, postal or e-mail-address, telephone number etc.).

Of course, you are not obliged to submit this information. In this case, however, we are unable to fulfil your requests for desired products, services or information, or to respond to your inquiries.

E-mail / contact form

If you send us an e-mail or message using our contact form, we only store and use the personal data you have provided (such as name, date of birth, postal or e-mail address, telephone number etc.), in order to fulfil the services we offer, and to correspond with you.

We would like to emphasise here, that if you send us personal information via unprotected e-mail, such a data transfer over the Internet is not perfectly secure, and this data could theoretically be intercepted, viewed or falsified by an unauthorized third-party.


We strongly encourage parents and guardians to supervise the online activities of their children. Persons under 18 years of age should not submit personal information without prior consent from a parent or guardian. We do not request any personal data from children, we do not collect such information, and we do not pass it onto third parties either. We kindly ask persons under 18 years of age, who wish to contact us, to inform us of their age and to provide us with the name of a parent or guardian.


As a rule, we do not use any cookies.

To find out more about the possible use of cookies by our provider All-INKL.COM, please consult the information on their website under the Internet address: All-INKL.COM (German only). Some of our pages contain external services and/or links thereto. To find out more about the possible use of cookies by these suppliers, their partners, and/or their providers, please consult their websites´ privacy notices directly.

Cookies are small text files which are sent to your personal computer from the web server and are mostly stored on your hard disk. They are not programs, which can penetrate into the user's system and cause damage there. Although cookies can identify the computer you are using, the cookies themselves do not store any personal data.

In addition, we do not use any technology, which links your personal information with any data arising from cookies, in order to establish your identity or e-mail address.

Most browsers are configured in such a way that they accept cookies automatically. You can, however, deactivate the cookies function, in which case your browser will not receive any cookies at any time, or set your browser to inform you as soon as a cookie is issued.

You have the right and the possibility to refuse cookies. Even if you have deactivated the cookies function in your browser, you can, of course, still avail of all the information we have on offer.


The Internet pages of the Martin Shipyard contain links to the pages of other providers, which are not covered by this privacy policy statement.

If we offer links to other websites, we try to ensure, that these represent our values. However, we do not have any influence over their operators' compliance with the data protection regulations, or the content of their privacy policy. If you visit another Internet website, please consult the valid privacy protection guidelines there.

Security during the processing of personal data

The Martin Shipyard has implemented the appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect the information we have collected from you, against accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction, or unauthorised access.

Our security measures are continually developed in accordance with technological advancements.

In detail, this means that we store your personal information on protected systems in Germany. Access is granted, solely, to those few individuals who are responsible for the technical or editorial supervision of the systems.

Using personal data

Personal data are collected, processed and used by us, in so far as this is necessary for the fulfilment of the services we have on offer. Furthermore, this is also the case, in order to test whether you are able to access secure Internet pages, to register you, to make contact with you as desired, or to fulfil your requests for our products, services or information.

In addition, we use this data, where appropriate, over and above the purpose indicated in each case in the specific contact form, provided you have given us your consent to do so.

Your data will be transferred to the appropriate persons within the Martin Shipyard, in order to answer your query or to process your request.

Using anonymous statistical data

We store and analyse general data related to the use of these Internet pages (such as, for example, the number of visits, visited pages, duration of visit), in order to examine the acceptance of the individual Internet pages. Unless otherwise stated, the data are examined anonymously, for statistical and market analysis purposes. We reserve the right to use this data both within the Martin Shipyard and externally.

Transferring personal information to third parties

The Martin Shipyard takes the utmost care in protecting your personal information and greatly appreciates your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly.

We only use your personal information for the internal purposes of the Martin Shipyard, during the course of the customer relationship, and otherwise do not pass this on to third parties, unless we have previously obtained your express consent to do so.

The disclosure of personal data to authorised state or legal authorities only takes place as required by law, and provided we are obliged to do so by court order.

The employees and partner companies of the Martin Shipyard are obligated by us to act with discretion and to comply to both data protection regulations and with our guidelines.


In the case of, for example, prize contests, we would like to use your data in order to inform you about our products and services, and, where appropriate, to ask you about these.

Of course, participation in such cases is purely voluntary. If you should disagree with our policy, please inform us of this at any time, so that we can block or delete your data accordingly. You can find further information on the respective local Internet page.

Right to information

Upon request, you can also receive information on all the personal data that we have collected about you, free of charge.

In addition, you also have the right to have possible mistakes and incorrect data corrected, updated, deleted, or blocked.


Furthermore, you can revoke prior given consent to collect, process and use your personal data, at any time, with immediate effect for the future. When you submit personal data to us (for example when ordering a newsletter), you have the possibility to have these deleted at any time. To do this, please use the form available at the respective place for the log-out. After confirmation of the security query, all your data for this service are then permanently deleted.

This exit possibility guarantees that you no longer receive e.g. newsletters. Important company-specific customer data (for example for building your yacht) are not affected by the cancellation of an Internet information service or by deletion.


The fast developments of the Internet, require us to make necessary changes to our guidelines on privacy / our privacy policy, from time to time. We will inform you here about the respective innovations.

Although we do not plan to change our guidelines on privacy often, we would advise you to check for these changes regularly, when you visit our pages. This way, you can guarantee that you read our current guidelines and agree with these.

All of the changes to our guidelines on privacy are foresighted. We will not carry out any retroactive changes, unless instructed to do so by the legislator.

Questions, suggestions, comments

If you have any questions regarding the processing of your personal information or on the general subject of data protection, please contact the owner of Martin-Yachts, who is responsible for the data protection and will be happy to help you with any information requests, suggestions or complaints.
