Dispatches No. 391


25.05.2018 was the date when new Privacy rules were introduced.

You all have been contacted and as a result you are now able to read this week’s Dispatches.

Please also find below our InterManager Privacy Policy:

Our privacy policy is very simple, straightforward, and no difficult words…. any information you may give us, for example e-mail address, we do not pass on to anyone…. ever.

We will only get in touch with you by e-mail and ONLY if you specifically express your wish to be contacted.

Our site does use cookies, the reason we use them is to help speed up your browsing experience. Our site cookies hold no personally identifiable details about you.  Cookies can be turned off using your browser tools.

We do not hold any credit card transactions details as we do not provide that kind of

Any other information you may give us is stored in Poland based servers, subject to English and EU privacy laws.

It is our policy never to put machine-readable e-mail addresses on our site, and advertisers are encouraged to do the same.

Update 25 May 2018:

Information on what we hold and why we hold it:

When you create a InterManager login account we collect your email address, name of the company, your name and your login name. We also keep a record when you have subscribed with us.

If you created a profile on our website then we hold information about your company as PROVIDED BY YOURSELF.

That is all we keep on our servers.

The valid email address is for log in purposes, so is required.  It’s up to you if you want to receive any newsletter stuff from us, you have to check a box for that.  You can always UNSUBSCRIBE – check for it towards the bottom of any of InterManager newsletters.

We log site/members area access by subscribers/members.

You can inspect the details we hold for you (have a look at “My Account”), and you can alter at will.

We can fully delete your account anytime, just ask, you won’t be able to log in anymore after that. In future if you don’t log in for 2 years, you will be deleted automatically (and lose any membership if you have one). Solution ..log in yearly at least.

We never pass your details to anyone for any purpose. The only exception to that would be if we were required to by law, court order, etc. Never happened yet…

3rd parties lurking on InterManager website.  No social media buttons which are used to track you. No Google analytics.   A Google powered search box on a few pages, and a few You Tube videos embedded.  These could result in you being followed by Google.  We are looking at alternatives …

21 June 2018 – London

If Industry 4.0 is to be truly realised, then shipping must embrace a new approach to the traditional supply chain. Moving a container from A to B involves, on average, 30 different actors and 200+ interactions – delivery of goods has never been more transparent, nor more complex. So, what can digitalisation do to streamline and integrate shipping with the broader supply chain?

Join us in London on 21 June to investigate how we can measure the impact digital business and harness the benefits of new technologies to improve performance – from ship to shore to delivery.

Across four key sessions we will discuss how we can identify the real digital opportunity in front of us and re-define digitalisation in maritime and transport. How can we better drive the business improvements these technologies represent?

  1. Maritime SATCOM summit
  2. The iShipping revolution
  3. Harnessing Cyber resilience and Managing Risk
  4. Can Digital drive optimisiation and efficiency

    This conference is free of charge for full Members of InterManager

Associate members 30% discount
