We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy lets you know how personally identifying information (“personal information”) collected through this Site is processed and used. It does not cover personal information that may be collected through other websites or by ISSTA (International Seafood Sustainability Trade Association) in other venues.

Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personal information
You may choose to provide your name and e-mail address to us, either by contacting us through the Site or by replying to a blog entry that is posted on the Site.

ISSTA will not sell, share or rent your personal information to others except with your consent; when we need to share the information to provide a service you have requested; or to enable a third party to provide services to us and then only to provide those services. We also will disclose personal information to enforce our rights, to prevent fraud or when required by law, judicial process or other legal order to do so.

E-mail Communications
You will receive e-mail correspondence from us if you have contacted us or replied to a blog entry. We also may send you periodic email communications on matters that you may find of interest.

We do not share your e-mail subscription or contact information stored with any unaffiliated third party, except to certain service providers to help deliver the emails to you. Subscribers wishing to unsubscribe from our e-mails can do so by clicking the “unsubscribe” link or following the instructions contained within any e-mail received from us.

A cookie is a piece of data stored on your hard drive. Our cookies contain no personal information about you. Once you end your session by closing your browser, your cookie simply terminates. Among other things, cookies help keep track of data you have entered during the session for your convenience.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to other websites to which our Site may link. We are not responsible for privacy policies of other websites linked to our Site. Please read the privacy statements of those websites for information about how they treat personal information.

We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards intended to protect against loss, misuse or unauthorized access to your personal information. Except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, we restrict access to your personal information to those employees and contractors who reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you, and they may use it only for that purpose.


This Agreement is between you and ISSTA and is governed by the laws of the State of Virginia USA. You hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of courts in Fairfax County USA in all disputes arising out of or relating to the use of this Site. Use of this Site is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of this Agreement, including without limitation this paragraph. If any part of this Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in effect. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and ISSTA with respect to the subject matter, and it supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written, between you and ISSTA with respect to this Site. A printed version of this Agreement and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this Agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
