Airwars compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Airwars regards the lawful and fair treatment of personal information as very important to our successful operations, and to maintaining confidence between our team and all those who use and access our services.

What information will we collect, and how will we use it?

We do not collect personal data from people visiting our website, or our social media sites. If you sign up for our newsletters and updates, we will collect and securely store any personal data you choose to give us (such as your name, contact details and demographic information) in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2018. We may also use personal data to understand the demographics of the individuals using and accessing our services, though this data will not be shared outside of the organisation. Where consent from you is given, we will add your data to our MailChimp lists, an organisation which manages the technical side of our newsletters. The information securely held by MailChimp only includes your name and email address in the context of the Airwars list you have chosen to subscribe to – and will not be shared by them or us with any other party.

All data securely stored at Airwars will be reviewed annually, to ensure that the organisation does not hold on to personal data indefinitely.
