Privacy policy for FlightScope mobile applications

This privacy policy applies to your access and use of FlightScope’s mobile software applications.

Our policy is to obtain as little information as possible, limited to only that which is needed to provide a better product and service to you, the user, and to enable us to maintain a professional relationship with you.

Information the Application obtains and uses

Information provided by the user

The application obtains information provided by you when you download the application and also when you register to use the MyFlightScope.com online services. Please keep in mind that you may not be able to use some features offered by the application or by MyFlightScope.com unless you register.

When you register with us to use the application, you provide:

  1. your name, email address, a chosen user name, a secure password, and other registration information;
  2. transactional information when you download the application or updates to it, or when you subscribe to additional services (if applicable)

Additional information may also be collected automatically in addition to the information provided by you. This includes but is not limited to

  1. your mobile device type and unique device identifier,
  2. the IP address of your mobile device,
  3. your mobile operating system type, and
  4. information about the way you use the FlightScope application

A specific list for each application can be viewed under the “ADDITIONAL INFORMATION > Permissions” section on the application download page of the store.

Finally, information may also be collected when you contact us for technical support.

Why we collect data

The collected data are used to

  • find out how users use the application so that its features and functions can be improved
  • determine statistics of user problems and find bugs in our application
  • to contact you occasionally to share important information and provide marketing promotions with you

We collect as little data as possible for the above purposes.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information.

We may release your information when we believe the release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, protect ours or others’ rights, property, or to act for safety or against terrorism.

From time to time we compile statistical data not containing personal data of individuals or identities of mobile devices so that we can better understand how applications are used, and to plan new functions and features for the general benefit of FlightScope users. We reserve the right to store and share such anonymous statistical information with business associates at our discretion.

We do not share or allow use of your information by our technology service providers.

If FlightScope is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our website of changes in ownership or uses of this information, as well as any choices you may have regarding this information.

Exiting

You can stop collection of information by uninstalling the application, using the standard uninstall processes on your mobile device or the online application store.

Data retention

We retain user provided and automatically collected data for as long as you use the application, and up to 2 years after you exit our service. Anonymous information aggregated into statistical data is retained indefinitely.

Children

Our applications and online store services are of a general nature and are not aimed at children under the age of 13 years. We do not use the application to knowingly solicit data from or market to children under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with information without their consent he or she should contact us at support@flightscope.com. We will delete such information from our files within a reasonable time.

Security

We take all reasonable steps and best practices to protect the confidentiality of your information through physical, electronic, and procedural measures. Notwithstanding this, there is no absolute guarantee that the security of information we collected and stored cannot be compromised through criminal or malicious activity and you indemnify FlightScope against such breaches.

Law

While our services are currently located primarily in the United States, we comply with the privacy laws of all countries where our services are hosted.
