Privacy and data policy

The Flying Reporter website, like many others, collects user information in order to manage subscriptions, monitor website traffic, and serve adverts.  By your continuing use of this website, you agree to the processing of your information as outlined below.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, this website 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.  The purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is so that the website can analyse traffic trends.   

This website also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. The website does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to this website choose to interact in ways that require the website to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that this website gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who subscribe to one of our membership levels, or sign up for the newsletter to provide their name, a username and email address.  We also ask for this information if you wish to comment on a post on this website.  In each case, the website collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the website. If you provide your name when making a comment on a web post, your name will be publicly displayed on the website.  Other than this, the website does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And 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 Certain Personally-Identifying Information

The website will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, the website discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when the website believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of the website, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of/subscriber to the website and have supplied your email address, we 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 the website.  The website takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
