Data protection declaration for Flightright
Flightright attaches great importance to the protection of personal data. It goes without saying that we observe the regulations of the applicable data protection laws and will only collect and process personal data of airline passengers in the scope described in this data protection declaration.
The purpose of this declaration is to inform you of Flightright’s aspects relevant for data protection, and of the measures taken by us to safeguard your data protection rights.
Nature and scope of the collection and processing of personal data
You can use certain Flightright services (for example the enquiry “Check claim”) without separate provision of personal data. Nevertheless, we create a so-called use profile when you visit our websites.We then collect and store data in anonymous form for marketing and optimisation purposes. This concerns for example data on the website from which you have reached Flightright, the name of your Internet service provider, which websites you have visited within Flightright as well as the date and duration of your visit. This data, which has already been rendered anonymous, is used to create use profiles, possibly under a pseudonym.
We then receive use data; nevertheless in anonymous form or under a pseudonym. This means, for example, that we do not know your preferred use conduct, but only that there is a user with this type of use conduct. You can also object to the collection and storage of data under this item at any time.
When you use Flightright, our servers automatically record data sent by your browser when you visit a website. These server log files can contain your web enquiry, the IP address, the browser type, the browser language, date and time of your enquiry and one or more cookies which can identify your browser clearly.
Flightright can set up links in a format that gives Flightright the possibility of monitoring whether these links are used. We use this data to improve the quality of Flightright as well as of personalised content and possibly advertising on Flightright. Flightright has no influence over links emanating from Flightright. Websites of Flightright partners may possibly deposit own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or request personal data from you.Flightright processes personal data solely for the purposes for which it has been collected. The collection of your data enables us to offer you a user friendly, efficient and secure Internet service. We use the personal data collected and processed to execute the contractual agreements concluded by you with us (see our General Terms and Conditions of Business). Otherwise, the general purpose of our data processing is to improve Flightright as well as its security, although no personal data is processed in this respect. This processing is in anonymous form or under a pseudonym.
When you register with Flightright as an airline passenger, we also ask you to provide personal data in addition to the data collected above. Personal data is stock data such as name and address as well as flight data, for example flight number, date, time. The provision of debt collection services such as ours, may also require account data which we store in encrypted form on secure servers.
We offer you the possibility of adapting or altering your personal data online or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Upon request, we can inform you about what kind of personal data is stored.
If we suggest the use of personal data for purposes other than those described previously, we offer you the possibility of rejecting the use of personal data for other purposes.
