Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting GA Flight Tracker. General Aviation Flight Tracker is committed to honoring the privacy of our members and visitors.

When you register for a GA Flight Tracker account and other services, we ask you for your name, contact information, preferences, and personal profile information. This information lets us provide personalized services and communicate separately with you. We also use aggregated information about the use of our services to evaluate our users' preferences, improve our programming, and facilitate third-party reporting of Internet usage.

Like most web sites, we use small bits of data called cookies stored on users' computers to simulate a continuous connection. Cookies let us remember information about your preferences and passwords and allow you to move within our service without reintroducing yourself. Web browsers let you easily see and control cookies. GA Flight Tracker and its advertisers may also use cookies to determine on an anonymous basis which advertisements users have seen and how users responded to them, but don't use such cookies to collect personally identifiable information unless you give us permission to do so. Similarly, GA Flight Tracker and its advertisers may use small pieces of code called "web beacons" or "clear gifs" to collect anonymous advertising metrics and to deliver cookies related to such advertisements.

While we need certain information to register you as a unique user and let you access personalized services, some contact and optional information is not required and may be given at your discretion. Registration is not mandatory and you may use most GA Flight Tracker services without disclosing any information.

We encourage GA Flight Tracker members to update and edit their personal information and keep it current. You can easily correct or update your personal information at any time via our Profile page, or through the iOS and Android apps.
