Aggregate and De-Identified Information

AVIANET may process (i.e., collect, use and disclose) aggregate de-identified information, and other information that is not personally identifiable, for research, analytics and other purposes, provided such information does not identify, and could not reasonably be used to identify a particular Business Customer or End User.


AVIANET uses the personal information we collect via the Platform to provide our services to Business Customers, including to operate and improve the Platform and our services, to provision Platform Users’ accounts, to carry out the transactions Platform Users request via the Platform, and to respond to Platform User requests.

As noted above, AVIANET is a data processor of the personal information collected via the Platform. Business Customers are data controllers with respect to Platform User personal information; this Policy does not apply to the processing (including collection, use and sharing) of Platform User personal information by Business Customers.

Business Customers may use the personal information they collect via the Platform for additional purposes, such as to deliver targeted content within the Platform, to contact End Users about their use of the Platform, for marketing and promotional purposes, and for other purpose; you should review their privacy policies for more information about how they collect, use and share the personal information collected via the Platform.


As noted, Platform User information, including End User personal information, is shared with the Business Customer upon whose behalf the information was collected or Platform is being operated; this Policy does not apply to the processing (including collection, use and sharing) of Platform User personal information by Business Customers, and we are not responsible for such processing.

AVIANET will not share personal information about Platform Users with third parties except to provide the products or services you have requested, with consent, or under the following circumstances:

  • We will make personal information available to the Business Customer on whose behalf the personal information has been collected, as explained above.
  • We may provide personal information to our agents, service providers, contractors and others acting on our behalf. These parties do not have any independent right to use or share this information.
  • We may disclose the information we collect from you to AVIANET affiliates and subsidiaries; however, if we do so, their use and disclosure of your information will be subject to this Policy.

Third parties who process personal information on our behalf must agree to use such personal information only for the purpose for which it is provided by us and they must contractually agree to provide adequate protections for personal information; AVIANET will continue to be liable for any onward transfers of personal information to such third parties.

We may also disclose personal information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements, as well as where is necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable government request, to enforce our User Agreement and investigate violations thereof, to prevent, detect and address fraud, security or technical issues, or to protect against harm to the rights and property of AVIANET. If we are acquired by or merged with another company, if substantially all of our assets are transferred to another company (including as due diligence and for other purposes prior to the closing of such a transaction), or as part of a bankruptcy proceeding, we may transfer the information we have collected (including personal information) to the acquiring company.


Individuals have the right to access the personal information that is maintained about them, and in some cases to limit use and disclosure of such information. Registered Platform Users may log into their accounts to view and amend certain personal information in their profile. EU and Swiss End Users who would like to request access to, to limit use of, or to limit disclosure of their personal information collected via the Platform by a Business Customer should contact that Business Customer directly; EU and Swiss End Users may also make such requests by contacting us at Privacy@AVIANET.AERO and providing the name of the Business Customer. We will refer such requests to that Business Customer and will support them as needed in responding to your request.

It is your responsibility to keep your password confidential and not to share this information with anyone. While we will implement the security measures detailed above, transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and therefore transmission via the internet is at your own risk.
