Privacy Policy

Effective February 11, 2011

At Share the Plane, we believe that a person's privacy is very important. We are very respectful of your privacy and are providing this information to demonstrate how seriously we take the protection of your personal information. This Privacy Policy governs how Share the Plane collects, protects, stores, transfers, and uses the personally identifiable information ("PII") that we collect.

Personal Information

At Share the Plane, we try to give you as much control as possible over your personal information. In general, you can visit Share the Plane without giving us personal information or registering for an account. There are times, however, when Share the Plane may gather information from you in order to communicate more effectively with you or otherwise better facilitate the purpose of your visit to Share the Plane. There are generally three cases in which this is necessary.

First, we require some PII from you when you choose to send a message to the poster of a listing via Share the Plane's  site. In this case, you'll need to supply your name, email address and phone number. Without this basic contact information, our sellers have difficulty believing that you are a genuinely interested buyer. Your information is provided only to the seller to whom you are sending a message.

Second, users that elect to register for a Share the Plane account must share certain PII in order to establish their account. The overall purpose of a Share the Plane account is to enable users to have an experience on our website that is more tailored to their specific needs. In general, any PII gathered in registering for an account is used for that purpose.

In all cases described above, we will occasionally use your PII to contact you with news about Share the Plane, such as a new product or service that we believe adds value to your relationship with Share the Plane. However, if you tell us that you do not wish to receive these announcements, we will respect your wishes and remove you from our contact database. We do not share, sell, rent or otherwise provide our lists of contact information to any 3rd party organizations. However, if we make the decision to do so in the future, we will not include your personal information in any list that we share with a 3rd party unless you have given us explicit consent to do so.

Commerce

When you purchase an aircraft listing space or other online services from our site, you have the option to make your payment via an online credit card transaction. Each such transaction is secured by SSL encryption and verified with VeriSign® digital certificates.

Security of PII

Share the Plane intends to protect your PII and implements appropriate measures and processes to help keep your information secure and maintain its integrity. Share the Plane uses technical, physical, and other safeguards for such protection against loss, unauthorized access, destruction and disclosure.

Cookies, Web Beacons and Other Related Technologies

Share the Plane sometimes collects non-identifiable information about the web pages that you visit. Share the Plane may use cookies, web beacons and/or similar technologies to enable us to collect certain information when you visit the Share the Plane web pages, including for example: internet protocol address, browser type, operating system, referring site, date and time of visit, URL of pages visited and downloads from our site.

Share the Plane does use a technology called cookies. A "cookie" is a piece of data that a web site sends to your browser, which may then be stored on your computer as an anonymous tag that identifies your computer but not you. Share the Plane's cookies are harmless and designed simply to improve your interaction with our website.

We occasionally use cookies to track general traffic coming through Share the Plane. From this aggregate data, we can learn more about how people use the website. This data helps us improve our site design to maximize the user experience.

We may occasionally link this information to PII in order to provide better service to you and to tailor product and service offerings to you. Most browsers allow you to remove and block cookies and web beacons. The decision to do so is entirely yours. However, please be aware that if you choose to block cookies and web beacons, you may need to re-enter passwords and user IDs when required, and you may also not be able to take advantage of information and a user experience that is tailored to your specific needs.

Use of PII

The PII provided to Share the Plane is used by Share the Plane to develop and conduct our business. Some examples of how we use PII include: improving our products and services; personalizing communications with you; conducting market research; conducting customer surveys; processing, fulfilling, tracking and improving the effectiveness of our website and web-based marketing; and complying with legal requirements and enforcing our website terms of use or otherwise protecting Share the Plane's legal rights.

Share the Plane may share your PII with our subsidiaries, service providers, and suppliers who are acting on Share the Plane's behalf (and only when they are doing so). We may also share your PII with third parties for purposes that you have specifically approved. Lastly, Share the Plane may share or disclose your PII in the event that Share the Plane has a good-faith belief that disclosure is necessary to respond to a judicial action, government inquiry, or is otherwise ordered by law.

Links to Third Party Websites

Share the Plane 's site contains links to other company's web sites. For obvious reasons, Share the Plane cannot be responsible for the content or the privacy practices of such web sites.

Children's Privacy

Share the Plane's web site and marketing are not directed to children under 13 years of age. If that policy changes, we will obtain consent from a child's legal guardian before we collect PII from anyone under the age of 13.

General Terms

Due to privacy policy requirements set by various regulating agencies, Share the Plane reserves the right to change any of the privacy policies governing the Site, at any time and in its sole discretion. Although this Privacy Policy may change from time to time, we will not reduce your rights under this policy without your explicit consent. Any changes will be effective upon posting of the revisions to the Site, and may be posted without notice to you. The effective date of this Privacy Policy will appear at the top of this page for your reference.
