First things First
Personal data we collect and why
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
We collect data from contact and other forms on our website such as feedback forms, information request forms et cetera. We also collect IP addresses of the sender to enable us track spam submissions in the hope of backlisting them. This may enable us to locate the country as well as the district, city or town where the IP address originates from. We are not aware if we are able to locate even the exact place where the information is sent from but this could be a possibility. We do not need to know the exact place. We just need to know the IP address to help us track and report spam submissions and spambot attacks.

Embedded content from other websites

This enables the Eastrise Aviation webmaster to optimise the site for search engines thereby giving our website visitors a great experience. These analytics are shared anonymously with Google and other search engines.

Our system will automatically collect information on your login times, location(s), your password information and email as well as personal details such as date of birth et cetera that may be used to identify you or your preferences. We will not sell this data to a third party. Moreover, we will only collect the data that we need – for example, we want to be sure that you at least 18 years and over to enroll to our ground school without which a parental consent will be required.

This record is kept to repopulate the contents of your cart if you switch devices or needed to come back another day. Succesfull purchase history may be kept for up to 5 years. for audit and other legal compliance purposes.
Who we share your data with
We may, if asked, provide details of our subscribers and customers when requested by the government or any competent authority upon request – even within a short notice. This includes the police, anti-terrorism units or even foreign governments who make an official request – usually through the Malawi Government. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information. Information will be stored up to 5 years after which it will either be manually or automatically deleted – whichever way is convenient and feasible for Eastrise Aviation.
The rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
