About vQuip

vQuip provides the Platform to employers, marinas, and other companies that operate boat rental facilities (collectively, “Commercial Customers”). In addition to providing the Platform to Commercial Customers, vQuip provides risk management services and rental booking services to its Commercial Customers. As part of this arrangement, End Users may schedule and purchase boat rentals and other services provided by Commercial Customers directly through vQuip. In some cases, End Users may also purchase boat rental insurance from vQuip through the Solutions in connection with the End User’s boat rental from a Commercial Customer. All services provided by vQuip to Commercial Customers constitute “vQuip Services.” When an End User operates a boat rented from a Commercial Customer or otherwise interacts with the applicable Commercial Customer’s systems and technology, information about the End User and its use of the Commercial Customer’s boats, systems, and equipment may be transmitted and stored in the Platform (such information, whether personally identifiable or not, “Usage Data”). For example, if a Commercial Customer uses a third-party GPS system on one of its rental boats, the GPS system may integrate with the Commercial Customer’s instance of the vQuip Platform, and vQuip may receive boat speed, position, and location data from the third-party GPS system.
