Information we may collect from you
In general, you can use our Website without giving us any personal information. However, additional services may be available to you if you provide us with personal information about you. Where you request such services, or choose to contact us through the Website or our social media accounts (eg Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, Google Plus), we may collect and process the following information about you:
- Information that you provide directly to us by filling in forms on the Website or contacting us (for example in order to receive printed corporate and information materials and e-mail alerts). Such information includes your name, job title, company (and jurisdiction), telephone number, fax number and email address;
- We may also ask you to provide us with information regarding your personal or professional interests, demographics, experiences with our products and contact preferences for research purposes in order to provide you with further correspondence about our products and services. However, you do not have to respond to these surveys and should you choose to receive such details from us, you may withdraw your consent at any time;
- If you wish to apply for a job vacancy advertised on the Website, we will provide you with additional information at the time you submit your application about how we will process your personal data in relation to your job application;
What do we do with the information we gather?
Where you choose to provide such information, we and (where we share with third parties, as set out in more detail below) our affiliates collect, retain and otherwise process this information for the following reasons:
- To ensure that content from our Website is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer and to better understand your preferences and to provide you with a better quality of service – this processing of your personal information helps us present the Website in the most effective manner and provide a better service, which is in our legitimate business interests and does not cause unfair prejudice to you;
- To provide you with information, e-mail alerts, products or services that you request from us and which are described on our Website; and
- If you have provided your consent to receive marketing communications from us (and/or our selected third party affiliates) our representatives may follow up by email, phone, or mail (in accordance with your stated preference(s)) and send you information about new developments or activities which we think may be of interest to you.
Who we share the information with and your choices
Any application, request or enquiry you make may be passed on, or made available to, any member of our group and to selected third parties as we consider necessary to enhance the customer or employee experience (which is in our legitimate business interests, as explained above), to deal with enquiries and/or for the administration of the Website and related business, including, partners, successors, subcontractors and agents. Where a third party processes information about you on our behalf, we have contracts in place which require them to only process the information as instructed by us and take steps to protect the information. Some of our affiliates are based outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) in countries that do not have the same level of data protection laws that your home jurisdiction has.
Where we transfer information about you outside of the EEA, we take the steps required by data protection legislation to protect your information by imposing contractual obligations on the third party based outside the EEA. If you would like to obtain a copy of the agreement which protects your personal information when transferred outside of the EEA, please contact us at email@example.com. All BBA Aviation plc affiliates, service providers, and advisers (regardless of their location) are required to comply with our internal Data Protection Policy which requires that steps are taken to protect your personal information and for it only to be used for the purpose(s) for which it was submitted.
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties (i.e. situations where the third party is not simply processing your personal information on our behalf) unless:
a) We have your prior permission;
b) We sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets (this is in the legitimate interests of both us and the prospective seller or buyer, and does not cause you unfair prejudice); or
If you have submitted personal information through this Website and wish us to cease using it for the purposes submitted, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
