Information that we may collect
As and when you visit, browse or use an Aircards Experience we may collect certain Information from you. Some of this Information may be Personal Data and some of the Information may be Anonymous Information. We use your Information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Notice.
Below is a list of some of the Information we may collect from you, depending on how you interact with Aircards:
Use of certain features
There are some features of the Aircards Experiences that may require you to provide certain Information about yourself when doing this. This could be one or more of the following items of Personal Data: your name, your email address, your phone number, your country of residence, your selfie image. You will be prompted to voluntarily consent to this collection of data so that you are able to utilise the Aircards Experience.
User Generated Content
Some features of the Aircards Experiences may allow you to create, submit, post, display, transmit or share content (e.g. photos, videos, comments, messages, and other materials) on or through the Aircards Experience ( “User Generated Content”).
When you use the Aircards Experience we will only collect and store your User Generated Content if it is essential to the operation of that particular Experience.
Some of your User Generated Content may contain personal information about you or other natural persons, e.g. audio, photos or videos featuring you or your friends. We therefore advise you to be selective about what personal information you include in User Generated Content, and not to include any of the following types of personal information in any submission to any publicly available area of the Aircards Experience: telephone numbers, physical addresses, full name or any other information of a sensitive nature. If you upload personal information about or depicting other individuals (e.g. a photo of a friend), it is your responsibility to obtain their consent first.
IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT YOU AND NOT AIRCARDS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR, AND CONTROL YOUR USER GENERATED CONTENT. IF YOUR USER GENERATED CONTENT CONTAINS ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION OF OTHERS THEN UNLESS YOU ARE DOING THIS AS PART OF A PURELY PERSONAL OR HOUSEHOLD ACTIVITY YOU MAY HAVE OBLIGATIONS AS A ‘DATA CONTROLLER’ UNDER APPLICABLE DATA PROTECTION LAW THAT YOU NEED TO COMPLY WITH.
Information collected from other sources
Analytics and information about your device
When you use the Aircards Experience, our servers will automatically access or collect information from your device (e.g. smartphone), including the following:
We use this Anonymous Information to analyse and optimise your use of the Aircards Experience.
GPS Location Data
Aircards does not currently receive or process any GPS location data provided by you or which we receive from location service providers. We may however wish to do so in the future to tailor the Aircards Experiences offered to users in a particular geographical location. If this becomes the case, we will only process GPS location data for which you have given us your consent, including your GPS location, which were provided by you or which we receive from GPS location service providers, but only for so long as this is necessary for delivering the Aircards Experience and/or to the extent required as permitted by applicable law.
Legal basis for processing Personal Data
Our legal basis for collecting and using your Personal Data will depend on the Personal Data concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. However, we will normally collect Personal Data from you only where (i) we need the Personal Data to perform a contract with you; (ii) the processing is in our legitimate interests and not superseded by your rights; (iii) we have a legal obligation to process your Personal Data; or (iv) we have your consent to do so (e.g. you have ticked a box, or signed up for a newsletter).
We process your Personal Data on the basis of our “legitimate interests”, for example, when we provide you with the Aircards Experiences, carry out marketing, keep the Aircarsd Experiences secure, for engineering purposes, analysing users behavior across the Aircards Experiences, providing customer support, and running, growing and developing our business.
We have a “legal obligation” to process your Personal Data when complying with a legal obligation, such as preventing a crime or fraud or maintaining tax records. This ground may also include our obligation under the UK Data Protection Act 2018 and GDPR to protect your Personal Data.
If you have questions about the legal basis for collecting and using your Personal Data, please contact us using the contact information provided in the “Contacting Us” section below.
We may use your Information to send you notifications and information about the Aircards Experiences and other Aircards products and services we think may be of interest to you. If you have consented to receive marketing, you may opt out at a later date. If at any time you no longer wish to be contacted for this purpose, please let us know (contact firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will remove you from our mailing list.
Where will your information be stored?
Your Personal Data may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than the country of which you are a resident. These countries may have data protection laws that are different from the laws of your country.
We use Amazon Web Services (“AWS”) to store and process data on our behalf in connection with the Aircards Experiences. We primarily use AWS servers located in Europe to store and process your Information; however AWS also use various servers located around the world to cache data locally and speed up access to Experiences.
We may engage other businesses to carry out data processing on our behalf. For example, we may engage someone to provide payment services, to host the Aircards Experiences, to administer computer vision processing, or to provide analytics services. We will continue to be the data controller in respect of any Personal Data transferred to or shared with such third parties and shall remain responsible for the processing undertaken by them.
The following is a list of the main businesses who currently process data on our behalf in relation to the Aircards Experiences:

We may also share Information between our group countries, which are located in countries worldwide, including the United States.
If you use an Aircards Experience while you are outside the European Economic Area (EEA), your Personal Data may be transferred to countries outside the EEA to enable us to provide you with those services. The circumstances in which this may happen are:
If any of our servers are located outside the EEA or our service provider is located outside the EEA (see the table above).
When you use the Aircards Experiences, they are available for use internationally. This means it is possible that any Personal Data contained in your User Generated Content (e.g. your picture) that you publish may be automatically transferred by our servers to a device, server or other computer equipment being used in a country outside the EEA.
Countries outside of the EEA may not have similar data protection laws to the GDPR and UK Data Protection Act. If we do transfer any of your Personal Data outside the EEA (e.g. to a data processor located outside the EEA) we shall take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your Personal Data is adequately protected by: (i) only using processors who comply with EU data protection laws; (ii) the use of the European Commission's Standard Contractual Clauses; and (iii) (in the case of transfers to the US) the transfer of Personal Data to service providers and partners that are certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield.
BY USING THE AIRCARDS EXPERIENCES YOU SPECIFICALLY GIVE YOUR CONSENT TO THE INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS REFERRED TO IN THIS SECTION.
We may disclose your Information to or share it with the following types of recipients, including but not limited to:
We will not sell, trade or rent your Personal Data to anyone.
You may withdraw your consent for Aircards to process your Personal Data for direct marketing purposes at any time by notifying us in writing (an email will suffice).
You can opt-out from the future collection of Information by Aircards in accordance with this Privacy Notice by discontinuing use of the Aircards Experiences.
Aircards may choose to expand or reduce our business and this may involve the sale and/or transfer of control of all or part of Aircards or the Aircards Experiences. Information provided by users will, where it is relevant to any part of our business so transferred, be transferred along with that part as one of the transferred assets. The new owner or newly controlling party will, under the terms of this Privacy Notice, be permitted to use the Information for the purposes for which it was originally supplied to Aircards.
We also reserve the right to disclose de-identified user data to the prospective buyer of such business or assets.
The Aircards Experiences may contain links to websites, microsites and other on-line services that are operated by third parties i.e. businesses other than Aircards (collectively, “Third Party Services”). Aircards does not control these Third Party Services and is in no way responsible for their content, or information collection practices. This Privacy Notice DOES NOT apply to your use of any Third Party Services.
Data security is of great importance to Aircards. We have put in place commercially reasonable physical, electronic and managerial security measures to protect your Personal Data from access by unauthorised persons and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage. Specifically, we use the following measures:
Even though we have taken the above security measures given the nature of online communications we cannot 100% ensure the security of your Information or guarantee that your Personal Data will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by an unauthorised person who is determined to circumvent our security measures.
We will retain your Personal Data for the duration of your use of the Aircards Experiences and for a reasonable period thereafter for backup, archival and/or audit purposes or for as long as the law otherwise requires.
Where you have chosen to upload User Generated Content we will need to continue to store your content on our servers for so long as the third party wishes to have access to your content in accordance with any agreement you or Aircards may have entered into with that party.
You have the right to ask for a copy of any of your Personal Data held by us (where such data is actually held by us and we can identify who you are). We will normally provide copies in response to your request free of charge. We do, however, reserve the right to charge a reasonable fee for requests which are manifestly unfounded or excessive, particularly if it is repetitive and for further copies of the same Information.
We will ask you to provide reasonable proof of your identity before we disclose any Information to you.
This section of the Privacy Notice applies if any Aircards Experiences are accessed from within the USA or any other country which requires parental consent to be obtained before any collection of personal information from a child under the age of 13.
Aircards does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from children under the age of 13. The Aircards Experiences and their Content are not intentionally directed at children under the age of 13 and we do not target children under 13 as our primary audience. In the event we learn that we have inadvertently collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, and that child lives in a country which does not permit such collection without prior parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible.
If a parent or legal guardian becomes aware that their child under the age of 13 has provided us with personal information without prior parental consent, please contact us at the address below and we will delete such information from our files.
So we can comply with international privacy laws, we may use age screens for some Experiences. We do not store any individual’s date of birth.

We reserve the right to make changes to this Privacy Notice. When we update the Privacy Notice, we will post the new version and change the “Last Updated” date.
