WEBSITE PRIVACY POLICY

Welcome to the International Training Fund (“ITF”) websites located at http://uauniversity.org/, and http://uavip.org/ (collectively, the “Sites”). This Privacy Policy addresses ITF’s practices regarding information collected from visitors of the Sites and only addresses information collected directly through or from the Sites – it does not address or govern any information-gathering, use, or dissemination practices related to information collected from a visitor (sometimes referred to as "you" or "your") other than directly through or from the Sites, such as from telephone, facsimile, postal mail, personal delivery, or other or additional offline means or media.

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into ITF's Terms and Conditions for the Sites by reference, as if set forth fully therein, which must be reviewed and accepted by you. The Sites are not intended for children under the age of 18. It does not knowingly collect personal information online from visitors in this age group.

If you have any questions concerning this Privacy Policy, please contact us through one of the contact methods set forth at http://www.uavip.org/contact.

1. Collection of Personal Information from Visitors to the Sites. Except as specifically set forth herein, ITF may collect: (a) the email addresses of users that communicate with ITF via email; and (b) information knowingly provided by the user through the Sites in online informational sections, including any registration forms or forums. ITF may also use Internet cookies and other identifiers or methods of web analysis (such as Google Analytics) to gather, store, and track certain information related to your visit to and activity on the Sites. If you are uncomfortable with the idea of your information being used in this way, most computer systems and web browsers offer privacy settings and options, such as disabling cookies or opting for “Do Not Track” features. ITF does not override these settings or options, and encourages you to use them to enhance your choices and personalize your experiences. However, in order to access certain content, features, services, products or benefits on the Sites, you may be required to provide ITF with certain information, including some types of personally identifying information such as your email, your address, and your phone number. If you do not wish to provide such information through the Sites or if you opt to utilize the aforementioned privacy features of your computer system or web browser, you may be unable to obtain certain content, features, services, products, or benefits of the Sites.

2. Use of Personal Information Collected. Personal information collected by ITF may be used by ITF for limited purposes, including recordkeeping, editorial and feedback purposes, content improvement, or to customize the content and layout of the Sites. Personally identifying information, such as names, postal and email addresses, phone numbers, and other personal information voluntarily provided to ITF may be added to ITF’s databases and used for future contact regarding updates to the Sites or new services provided by ITF. From time to time, ITF may need to contact you regarding information you submitted to ITF. You agree that ITF may use your personal information for such contact with you. ITF may also desire to contact you for market research purposes or to provide you with marketing information that ITF believes would be of particular interest. You will have the option of not being contacted by ITF and opting-out of such contacts by contacting ITF through one of the contact methods set forth at http://www.uavip.org/contact.

3. Disclosure of Personal Information to Third Parties. Except as specifically set forth herein, any personally identifying information that you provide to ITF through the Sites will not be disclosed to other third party entities not affiliated with ITF. Your personal information and data, whether personally identifying or not, may be disclosed or distributed to another party with which ITF enters or reasonably may enter into a merger or consolidation, or to a third party pursuant to a subpoena, court order, or other form of legal process, in response to a request by or on behalf of any local, state, federal, or other government agency, department, or body, whether or not pursuant to a subpoena, court order, or other form of legal process, or if determined by ITF in its sole judgment that such disclosure or distribution is appropriate to protect the life, health, or property of ITF or any other person or entity. Your personal information and data, whether personally identifying or not, may also be provided to third parties that contract with ITF to provide products, information or other services that ITF believes that visitors to the Sites may be interested in obtaining. While ITF may undertake efforts to see that any third party to which ITF discloses personal information is under an obligation to use the personal information solely for the purposes for which the information was disclosed, such third parties are independent third parties over which ITF exercises no control. ITF is not responsible for, and will not be liable for, the conduct, actions, omissions, or information handling or dissemination practices of third parties.

4. Links to Other Websites. The Sites may also contain links to third party websites, for the convenience of users in locating information, products, or services that may be of interest. If you access a third party website from a link on the Sites, any information you disclose on that website is not subject to this Privacy Policy. It is possible that these links may be used by third parties or others to collect personal or other information about you. ITF is not responsible for the privacy practices of such websites, advertisers, or third parties or the content of such websites and it is your sole obligation to review and understand the privacy practices and policies of these other websites. ITF does not control these third parties’ use of cookies, collection of information, or how they manage such information. It is solely your obligation to review and understand the privacy practices and policies of these other websites, advertisers and any third parties.

5. Comments and User Content. All materials or comments posted to any aspect of the Sites are public. Please refer to the Terms and Conditions for further details concerning User Content and other materials submitted to the Sites. As such, ITF assumes no liability for the accuracy of such information, no duty to update or correct such information, and no liability for such communications arising under the laws of copyright, libel, privacy, obscenity, or otherwise.

6. Security Measures and Communicating with ITF. The confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to or from ITF via the Internet, including through the Sites or email cannot be, and is not, guaranteed. You acknowledge that the technical processing and transmission of content to and from the Sites may be transferred unencrypted and involve: (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices. Accordingly, ITF is not responsible for the security of information transmitted via the Internet.

7. Access to and Ability to Correct Personal Information; Opt-Out Right.

Except as necessary to obtain the services or information requested, you may opt out of having your personal information, which has been voluntarily provided by you to ITF through email, contact forms, or other online avenues, prospectively retained by ITF or used by ITF for secondary purposes, by contacting ITF as set forth above. This provision does not apply to collection of the type of web browser used to visit the Sites or to information provided or collected that does not meet the description hereunder.

8. California Privacy Rights. California Civil Code Section 1798.83 (also known as the “Shine The Light” law) permits users who are California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, information about the personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories of personal information that was shared and the names and addresses of all third-parties with which we shared information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request via one of the contact methods set forth at http://www.uavip.org/contact.

Any change to this Privacy Policy shall be effective as to any visitor who has visited the Sites before the change was made. It is the obligation of users visiting the Sites before the change to learn of changes to the Privacy Policy since their last visit.
