Privacy policy changes

Your privacy is very important to us; at Cairn Aviation we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

Cairn Aviation (Pty) Ltd. (“Cairn Aviation”) operates the cairnaviation.com domain. It is Cairn Aviation’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Cairn Aviation collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Cairn Aviation’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Cairn Aviation’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Cairn Aviation may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, for example: by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Cairn Aviation also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Cairn Aviation only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Cairn Aviation’s website choose to interact with Cairn Aviation in ways that require Cairn Aviation to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Cairn Aviation gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we collect the email address’ of those who wish to receive updates via email. In each case, Cairn Aviation collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Cairn Aviation. Cairn Aviation does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Protection of Personally-Identifying Information

Cairn Aviation discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that:
(i) need to know that information in order to process it on Cairn Aviation’s behalf or to provide services available at Cairn Aviation’s websites, and
(ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using Cairn Aviation’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Cairn Aviation will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying information to anyone.
Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, Cairn Aviation discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Cairn Aviation believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Cairn Aviation, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Cairn Aviation website and have supplied your email address, Cairn Aviation may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Cairn Aviation and our products.
We primarily use our social media presence to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Cairn Aviation takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
