Our Site’s registration form may require users to give us contact information (such as name, email address, mailing address, phone number, etc.) and unique identifiers (such as aircraft ID numbers). The customer’s contact information is used to contact the visitor when necessary.  Unique identifiers (such as aircraft ID numbers) are collected for use in our record system as required by the Federal Aviation Administration. Our purpose in collecting this information is to provide customized services and content that is relevant to your specific needs and interests. The Company may gather information through contracted third parties and/or Application Service Providers (ASPs). During your visit, you may be linked to a site or product of a third party in which we may need to share this information with those parties as to process    your transaction. During registration, we may request your name, address, postal code, email address, and phone number. In addition to the information noted above, at other times during your use of this Site, such as when you access personal data or information, or make a purchase, we may request more detailed and specific information, such as financial data. Portions of this Site are password protected so that only you have access to this information, except as necessary for the Company to provide the offered services. However, please be aware that the Company, or its employees, partners or contractors, may have access to your information to provide you with the services offered by this Site and to perform certain Site or database support and maintenance tasks. We will endeavor to protect your data and information from disclosure to any third party, other than the Company  employees,  partners and contractors. Although we use available technology to retain and protect this data and information, due to the nature of Internet communications, we cannot guarantee or warrant that your transmission is absolutely secure. Also, we strongly recommend that you not disclose your password to anyone.  Personal information that is submitted by an individual acting solely in a business capacity is not protected by this privacy policy.
