At Flylogs, our mission is to help you manage your data, and we believe the protection of our customers' and their end users' data is fundamental to this mission.
Even before Europe’s watershed General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect in 2018, Flylogs was focused on how we could improve privacy. We’ve built a product to expand and improve privacy online for aircraft operators, and we minimize our collection of personal data and only use personal data for the purpose for which it was collected. Since our founding, we have committed that we would keep personal information private, so we have never sold or rented our users’ personal information to anyone.
On a practical level, GDPR was a codification of many of the steps we were already taking: only collect the personal data you need to provide the service you’re offering; don’t sell personal information; give people the ability to access, correct, or delete their personal information; and, consistent with our role as a data processor, give our customers control over the information that, for example, is cached on our content delivery network (CDN), stored in our databases, or captured by our web application firewall (WAF).
