Privacy matters but it can be confusing. This page explains our approach to privacy on the Bookourplane website and how it affects you.
On the 25th of May 2018 the new European data regulation law (GDPR) became active. We see this as a really good thing and here are the key points how this affects you.
We collect anonymous statistics about your visit, like which of our pages you viewed. Some 3rd parties like Facebook and Twitter may know you visited this website, if you use their services. We can’t control them but we don’t believe this knowledge poses any threat to you. If you sign up with us we take great care to keep your information safe and we’ll never share it with others without your express permission. We never share your data with 3rd parties except to help us deliver our own services. These are just the key points. If you need detail, keep reading.
The information collected about you is the information you choose to fill in when you register yourself as a member of a flying club or sign up a new club. For example. Name, Address, Phone Number, Email and what flying club you are a member of.
This information is required for the booking system to work. Your club members need to know who has booked a particular aircraft.
It is important for us that you can get access to the information we have about you and if you wish, you can request your data at any time to be deleted or request what information is stored. This is done by sending me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). Important, to ensure that the right user request the information you need to attach a photo of your driver's license or passport.
To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
Enabling these cookies is not strictly necessary for the website to work but it will provide you with a better browsing experience. You can delete or block these cookies, but if you do that some features of this site may not work as intended.
The cookie-related information is not used to identify you personally. These cookies are not used for any purpose other than those described here.
We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site. The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better. You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish.
These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like” and “Tweet” buttons. To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example Facebook use this to say “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it. Social networks therefore could know that you’re viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.
When you sign up for any of our services – we will record specific personal information about you, such as your name and email address. This information is used only for the purpose of providing you with the service you requested.
We may send you email notifications regarding your service (such as if you there is a new aircraft booking, club message etc.) You can always opt out from these messages in your settings, or by clicking the opt out link in the bottom of the email.
We will never provide your personal information or email address to any third parties except where they are specifically employed to help deliver our own services, as detailed above.
Bookourplane take many precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. These precautions include:
