Storage of Personal Data

Most of our voyages are booked in quite some time in advance before the journey embarks. Personal data is necessary for both the handling of the booking by the office and on board the ship at the time of the voyage. Therefore, the personal data is stored in the meantime in a database at the Shipping Company Bark EUROPA.

After disembarkation from a trip passport information and next of kin details will be removed.
Medical information will be kept up to 3 years to be able to present a complete case to the ships doctors if someone wants to book another voyage.

Contact details of guests will be stored for 7 years.

Bark EUROPA does not store personal data longer than necessary for the purpose for which it was provided or required by law.

Processing of personal data

Your personal data are processed by Bark EUROPA for carrying out the booking for the following operation:

  • Voyage confirmation
  • Voyage invoice
  • Voyage preparation
  • Possible voyage ticket
  • Possibly Letter of guarantee
  • Immigration obligations on board Bark EUROPA


For the above actions we will ask for the following personal details:

Health status, height and weight are asked to check that everyone is in good health before embarkation. This is for the general safety of both permanent crew and guest crew, as no external medical assistance can often be requested during the trips. This information is shared for assessment with our usual ship doctors, who are bound by the medical confidentiality obligation.

On the booking form we will ask you for the contact details of your next of kin. We assume you will inform the person yourself about the fact that you have shared their contact information with us. We will use the contact information only in case of an emergency.
