    By using OceanConnect.com you expressly consent to our use of your specific information for the purpose of:

      Market Information
    At no point will we identify to any third party by name the participants in any transaction, except for the participants' directory and even there you may ask not to be mentioned. However, OceanConnect.com may, to the extent permitted by applicable law, post an average of completed transactions, based on aggregated data such as grade, price, quantity and port of delivery.

    OceanConnect.com may also disclose, for a fee, aggregate information (i) about transactions conducted through our Site in order to compile general market information and statistics and (ii) about visitors to our Site and participants in transactions we conduct.

    Disclosures of aggregated information will not identify individual parties and will take place only to the extent permissible by applicable law.

    Your information will be stored in a computer server in the U.S.A. Although specific laws covering privacy are still being considered in the U.S.A., OceanConnect.com takes all reasonable steps to protect the security of your information and abide by the terms of this Privacy Policy.

    Our Site may have links to many other sites. Before leaving our Site, a page will appear informing you that you are leaving our server. Once you link to another site, you are subject to the privacy policy of the new site. In addition, if through our Site you disclose information to other parties, such as to other participants or to others in any "Discussion Groups" or bulletin board, we have no responsibility for or control over the subsequent use or disclosure of it.

    The protection of your specific information is very important to us.
