Thank you for visiting the Marina del Rey Tourism Board website. Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used on this website, including when you use our hashtags on social media (such as #ilovemdr), sign up for our newsletters, respond to online or in-person surveys, as well as information you provide to us in person at events or through the mail. This policy outlines the steps we take to safeguard your privacy.

The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected  include: name, e-mail address, city, state and telephone number. The data owner for the information we collect is Marina del Rey Tourism Board (MDRTB). MDRTB is responsible for the collection and management of user information.

MDRBTB is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).



We may use the information you provide about yourself to respond to your inquiries. We may use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our site and to enable us to enhance your Internet experience. We also may use this information in the aggregate to measure server performance and analyze site usage. We sometimes track the keywords that are entered into our search engines to measure interest in specific topics and to improve the consumer experience on the site.

Similarly, if you have made public posts from your other social media accounts that include our specialized hashtags (including, but not limited to, #iloveMDR and #yesvisitMDR), we may collect and use that information to help provide you with more relevant, personalized content about Marina del Rey. You can control whether we see this information by not using our specialized hashtags. We may also collect information from you in-person or through the mail if you provide us with a business card or other document that includes your name, email address, phone number, and/or other personal information.

With your consent, we will use your e-mail address and/or other personal information to provide you with information we think you will be interested in, for example, to send you our newsletters, notify you of new publications, to update or introduce you to events in and around the Marina del Rey area or other areas we think you might enjoy, and to inform you about updates to our website. Even after you have agreed to receive such messages, you can let us know at any time if you would prefer not to receive any or all of this information either by following the unsubscribe instructions in any email you receive from us or by sending an e-mail to info@visitmdr.com that contains the email address you wish us to unsubscribe from our lists.

We also have a legitimate business interest in complying with our legal obligations. To that end, we may release personal information if we believe in good faith that: the law or legal process requires it; we have received a valid administrative request from a law enforcement agency; or such release is necessary to protect our rights, property, or safety, or that of our respective affiliates, business partners, customers, or others.

In the event the MDRTB conducts an online promotion, contest, or sweepstakes (collectively, a “Promotion”), information we collect will be used consistent with the terms and conditions outlined in the promotion guidelines or rules, which may include a reference to this Policy. You can elect to provide permission for MDRTB to use the email address and/or telephone number you provide when entering a Promotion for sending you marketing messages. However, you are only required to provide such permission in order to participate in a Promotion if it is necessary for the running of the promotion. For instance, if we request your email address or your social media handle because it is used to notify you if you’ve won and/or to send your prize, and you do not want to provide it, you will not be able to participate in the promotion. The information you provide us will be used to administer the promotion. If you have not opted in to receive further communications about upcoming promotions, your identifying data will be retained only for as long as it is necessary to administer the promotion and legally comply with our obligations.

Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Notice. Inadvertent disclosures may result, for example, when third parties misrepresent their identities in asking the site for access to personally identifiable information about themselves for purposes of correcting possible factual errors in the data.



Marina del Rey Tourism Board may on occasion combine information we receive online with outside records to enhance our ability to market to you those products that may be of interest to you. If you prefer not to receive online marketing information from this website, please see How to Contact Us.

Pursuant to your reasonable request, we will provide you or a third-party you specify, and we verify, with a list of all of your personal information that MDRTB has collected. Similarly, upon your request, we will make corrections to our records of your personal data. MDRTB strives to ensure that data is only retained for the period necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected and is fully deleted when no longer required.  Many locations now have laws, such as the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), that govern data privacy for their citizens or residents. If you wish to access or amend any personal data we hold about you, or to request that we delete or transfer any information about you that we have obtained through our website or digital platforms, you may contact us at info@visitmdr.com with the subject line “Data Privacy Request”.

Finally, Marina del Rey Tourism Board will not use or transfer personally identifiable information provided to us in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you with an opportunity to opt out of these unrelated uses.

Children between the ages of sixteen (16) and eighteen (18) must get permission from their parents before sending any personal information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else.

The website may contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different than ours. Visitors should consult the other sites’ privacy notices, as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties. In short, once you leave our website, newsletter, or social media, MDRTB is no longer responsible for the collection practices of the companies operating those sites.

We also work with a variety of third parties, such as DATAFY, to attempt to understand the profiles of the individuals who are most likely to be interested in visiting Marina del Rey so that we can serve our advertisements to them on websites, social media channels and other partner websites and entities. These third parties include (a) advertising networks, which collect information about a person’s interests when that person views or interacts with one of their advertisements; (2) attribution partners, which measure the effectiveness of certain advertisements; and (3) business partners, which collect information when a person views or interacts with one of their advertisements.

In collaboration with these third parties, we collect information about our customers, prospects and other individuals over time and across different platforms when they use these platforms or interact with them. Individuals may submit information directly on our website, social channels or on platforms run by third parties, or by interacting with us, our advertisements, or emails they receive from us or from third parties. We may use special tools that are commonly used for this purpose, such as cookies, beacons, pixels, tags, mobile advertising IDs, flash cookies, and similar technologies. We may have access to databases of information collected by our business partners.

The information we or third party collect enables us to learn what engagements with Marina del Rey content the person made, what ads or content the person sees, on which ads or links the person clicks, and other actions that the person takes on our website, social properties, or in response to our emails, or when visiting or using third parties’ platforms.



Although we don’t use “cookies” to personally identify you, we may use cookies to understand site usage and to improve the content and offerings on our sites.

Cookies are text files that may be placed in your computer’s browser to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information.

When you interact with our website, newsletter or social media accounts, we also collect limited non-personally identifying information that the browser you used makes available automatically. This information includes the internet address of the computer or network you used to access our site, the date, time, location, and page(s) you visited on our site, the browser and operating system you used, and the referring page (the webpage that contained the link to our site that you clicked on to get there). Once you leave, you have the right to opt out from the cookies per below.

You can opt out of many third-party advertising industry participants by using the cookie management services provided by advertising industry websites. These tools allow you to opt out from the cookies of companies that participate in their programs. Such third parties participate in the following industry cookie preference services: US – Digital Advertising Alliance: www.aboutads.info/choices, US – Network Advertising Initiative: www.networkadvertising.org/choices.For most mobile devices, you can opt out of third party use of information about your usage of mobile apps for interest-based advertising by using your device settings. You can find information about setting up your advertising preferences on mobile devices by visiting http://www.networkadvertising.org/mobile-choice.



California law requires that operators of websites and online services disclose how they respond to a Do Not Track signal. Some browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the website or online service that a user visits, indicating that the user does not wish to be tracked. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret Do Not Track signals, we do not currently respond to Do Not Track signals. We continue to follow the industry and will implement this service once a common understanding of how to treat Do Not Track signals is defined.



We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online or in person at events including trade shows. We exercise reasonable care to protect your non-public personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If a data breach occurs, we will notify you and the proper EEA authority (if required) within seventy-two (72) hours (if reasonably feasible).



We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove any portion of this Privacy Policy, in whole or in part, at any time. Modification of changes in the Agreement will be disseminated via our website at www.visitmdr.com/privacy-policy. By using this website, you agree to be bound by any such revisions and should therefore periodically visit the page to determine the then current terms of use to which you are bound.
