(“FlightSafety”), including its affiliates, subsidiaries, and related entities (wherever located), values protecting your privacy and is committed to compliance with applicable data protection laws. Please read this Privacy Statement (“Statement”) carefully, as it contains important information about how and why we collect, store, use, and share Personal Information, as well as any rights you may have with respect to such information. Please do not provide any Personal Information if you do not agree with this Statement.
When does this Statement apply?
This Statement applies when FlightSafety processes Personal Information of Clients, Customers, and prospective Clients and Customers in the context of FlightSafety’s business operations. This Statement also applies to applicants for employment with FlightSafety.
It does not apply to Customers or Clients who enter into separate agreements governing the processing of their Personal Information. Such agreements take precedence over any conflicting provision in this Statement. Finally, this Statement does not apply to any third-party websites, applications, services, or content linked from FlightSafety’s websites.
Depending on the nature of your relationship with us, we may collect and process the following types of Personal Information. Because the Personal Information we collect is important to our business operations, we may delay, deny, or prohibit providing any services or products to you if you decline to provide your Personal Information.
All information that FlightSafety collects about you may be combined to improve our communications with and service to you and reviewed, aggregated, or analyzed to enable us to develop and maintain world-class products and services.
In some circumstances, as permitted by law, we may collect certain Personal Information considered “sensitive” or of a “special category” under applicable law. This may include medical information (used, for example, to verify training or flight status, or Client seeks US training, certification, or rating) and other Personal Information for purposes of compliance with laws applicable to FlightSafety.
We collect most of the above Personal Information directly from you, or when applicable, a Customer that employs you. However, we may also collect information from:

Performance of a Contract
You may opt out of receiving promotional communications at any time by clicking on the relevant link in those communications or by contacting us at DataProtection@FlightSafety.com.
If we are notified that you do not want to receive further promotional or marketing communications from us, we will not contact you with additional direct marketing or promotional communications. However, FlightSafety may retain your Personal Information for other lawful purposes or to ensure you are no longer contacted.
Because FlightSafety is a global, complex business, we may share Personal Information internally with our employees or with third parties for the purposes described in this Statement. These third parties include:
We may also disclose Personal Information to other third parties to comply with legal obligations, enforce and support our corporate policies, respond to claims, and fulfil our contractual obligations.
We do not sell your personal information to anyone.
We retain your Personal Information for as long as needed to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected and for a reasonable period thereafter to comply with audit, contractual, or legal requirements. When no longer necessary to retain your Personal Information, we will delete or anonymize it (so that the information cannot be attributed to a specific individual without additional information) as applicable. FlightSafety also periodically reviews the need to process certain Personal Information.
The nature of our global operations requires us to transfer and receive data from locations outside of the United States. With respect to such transfers, we are subject to regulatory and enforcement authority of U.S. law. In certain situations, we may be required to disclose Personal Information to comply with applicable legal or regulatory requirements.
FlightSafety does not sell Personal Information or discriminate against individuals for exercising their privacy rights. More specific rights are listed below. If you believe that the processing of your Personal Information is not compliance with applicable law, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the appropriate data protection authority or regulatory body. We ask that you attempt to resolve any issues with us before lodging a compliant. Please refer to Section 12 “How to Contact Us” for more details.
European Economic Area, UK, and elsewhere: To the extent FlightSafety is a controller of Personal Information, your data protection rights are as follows:
California Consumer Protection Act: California residents have specific rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) with respect to processing of their Personal Information. Section 2 of this Statement lists the categories of information that we processed or used for a business purpose in the last 12 months. Section 6 of this Statement lists the categories of third parties with whom we share Personal Information. Subject to exceptions, you may request disclosure or request deletion of your Personal Information at any time by using the contact details below in Section 12.
However, we can only respond to verifiable requests received from individuals who desire to exercise their rights consistent with the CCPA. When contacting us, you must provide sufficiently detailed information about the Personal Information we are to update, correct, amend, or remove, and include the timeframe and method used to collect your Personal Information. If the information was obtained from a Customer or third party acting on your behalf, you must contact the individual or entity you provided your information to.
California residents have the right to direct a company not to sell their Personal Information. Because FlightSafety does not sell your Personal Information, this does not apply.
FlightSafety is committed to ensuring your Personal Information is processed securely. We have adopted internal policies and controls, consistent with commercially reasonable efforts, to help prevent your Personal Information from being lost, destroyed, misused, unintentionally disclosed, or accessed by anyone other than our employees or third parties with proper authority. We also train our employees on data protection and information security best practices and our policies.
We may update this Statement and its revision data at any time to reflect changes to our information practices or applicable laws.
