Golden Ocean Group Limited, including its affiliates (“Golden Ocean,” “we,” “us,” or “our”), is committed to respect your privacy and to comply with applicable data protection and privacy laws. This policy discloses the online privacy practices for Golden Ocean’s website and describes our online information collection, use and storage practices. This policy applies only to information we collect online on our website, and not to any other information collection we may conduct offline. Please be sure to read this policy before using, or submitting information to us.

Our privacy practices may change from time to time, so please check this area periodically for corresponding updates to our policy.

What information Golden Ocean collects from you, how it collects it, and why.

As with most websites, Golden Ocean tracks information in two ways; there is voluntary information that we request and information that we track passively.

We request information from you when you subscribe to email alerts for our press releases and/or stock exchange reports and similar services. If you decide not to provide us with the required information, we will be unable to process your request.

In order to properly maintain our website, we also passively track navigational information through, for example, use of cookies and by assigning Internet tags. These passive information tracking mechanisms are used to create log files, in which we record IP addresses, browser types, referring and exit pages, platform type, and other non-personally identifiable information that is useful for administering our website.

How Golden Ocean uses your information.

We use the information you provide to respond to your request (i.e., to send you information about Golden Ocean) and for other business purposes.

We also use the information we collect from you passively during your visit to analyze trends and to administer our website. For example, we use this information to determine fluctuation of visitor numbers from week to week, to diagnose problems with our server, and to improve your web experience.

What choices you have about the information you have provided to Golden Ocean.

We strive to provide you with as many choices and as much control as possible regarding the personal information you have provided to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:

  • Users who no longer wish to receive correspondence from us may opt-out of receiving these communications by following the unsubscribe instructions in the e-mail they receive; and
  • If you do not wish for us to collect cookies, you may set your browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you do so, please note that some parts of this website may not be accessible or function properly. You should be aware that we cannot control the use of cookies (or the resulting information) by third parties, and use of third party cookies is not covered by this privacy policy.

You should review this privacy policy carefully, because if you do not agree with our practices, your ultimate choice is not to use this website. By using any part of this website, you accept and agree to our privacy practices. If we update this privacy policy, your continued use of this website (following the posting of the revised policy) means that you accept and agree to the terms of the revised privacy policy.

How Golden Ocean protects your information.

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information.

Does Golden Ocean disclose any information to outside parties?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our website policies, or protect ours or others rights, property or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

Further, be aware that our website may contain links to other external websites that are not controlled by Golden Ocean. Golden Ocean is not liable for data protection handling on external websites.
