Data protection

The operators of this website and its pages take the protection of your personal data very

seriously. Hence, we handle your personal data as confidential information and in

compliance with the statutory data protection regulations and this Data Protection

Declaration.

Whenever you use this website, a variety of personal information will be collected.

Personal data comprises data that can be used to personally identify you. This Data

Protection Declaration explains which data we collect as well as the purposes we use this

data for. It also explains how, and for which

information is collected.

We herewith advise you that the transmission of data via the Internet (i.e. through e-mail

communications) may be prone to security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect

data against third party access.

Information about the responsible party (referred to as the

“controller” in the GDPR)

The data processing controller on this website is:

AET Aviation Training & Consulting GmbH

Fliederweg 28

52078 Aachen

Phone: +49 (0) 15735803194

Information on data transfer to the USA

Our website uses, in particular, tools from companies based in the USA. When these tools

are active, your personal information may be transferred to the US servers of these

companies. We must point out that the USA is not a safe third country within the meaning

of EU data protection law. US companies are required to release personal data to security

authorities without you as the data subject being able to take legal action against this.

The possibility cannot therefore be excluded that US authorities (e.g. secret services) may

process, evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring

purposes. We have no influence over these processing activities.

Revocation of your consent to the processing of data

A wide range of data processing transactions are possible only subject to your express

consent. You can also revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. This

shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data collection that occurred prior to

your revocation.

object to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

FREEDOMS OR IF THE PURPOSE OF THE PROCESSING IS THE CLAIMING, EXERCISING OR

DEFENCE OF LEGAL ENTITLEMENTS (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21 SECT. 1 GDPR).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS BEING PROCESSED IN ORDER TO ENGAGE IN DIRECT

ADVERTISING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF

YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSES OF SUCH ADVERTISING. THIS ALSO

ADVERTISING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER

GDPR).

Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency

In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a

supervisory agency, in particular in the member state where they usually maintain their

domicile, place of work or at the place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to

log a complaint is in effect regardless of any other administrative or court proceedings

available as legal recourses.

Right to data portability

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automatically process on

the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third

party in a commonly used, machine readable format. If you should demand the direct

transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is technically feasible.

SSL and/or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as

purchase orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses

either an SSL or a TLS encryption program. You can recognize an encrypted connection by

checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and

also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third

parties.

Encrypted payment transactions on this website

If you are under an obligation to share your payment information (e.g. account number if

you give us the authority to debit your bank account) with us after you have entered into

a fee-based contract with us, this information is required to process payments.

Payment transactions using common modes of paying (Visa/MasterCard, debit to your

bank account) are processed exclusively via encrypted SSL or TLS connections. You can

recognize an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser

switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the

browser line.

If the communication with us is encrypted, third parties will not be able to read the

payment information you share with us.

Information about, rectification and eradication of data

information about your archived personal data, their source and recipients as well as the

purpose of the processing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data

rectified or eradicated. If you have questions about this subject matter or any other

questions about personal data, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time at the

address provided in section “Information Required by Law.”

You have the right to demand the imposition of restrictions as far as the processing of

your personal data is concerned. To do so, you may contact us at any time at the address

provided in section “Information Required by Law.” The right to demand restriction of

processing applies in the following cases:

In the event that you should dispute the correctness of your data archived by us, we will

usually need some time to verify this claim. During the time that this investigation is

ongoing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal

data.

If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have

the option to demand the restriction of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding

the eradication of this data.

If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or

claim legal entitlements, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of

your personal data instead of its eradication.

If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our

rights will have to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined

whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand a restriction of the processing of

your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the

exception of their archiving – may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim,

exercise or defend legal entitlements or to protect the rights of other natural persons or

legal entities or for important public interest reasons cited by the European Union or a

member state of the EU.
