Privacy matters but it can be confusing. This page explains our approach to privacy on the Pilotmix website and how it affects you.
On the 25th of May 2018 the new European data regulation law (GDPR) became active. We see this as a really good thing and here are the key points how this affects you.
We collect anonymous statistics about your visit, like which of our pages you viewed. Some 3rd parties like Facebook and Twitter may know you visited this website, if you use their services. We can’t control them but we don’t believe this knowledge poses any threat to you. If you sign up with us we take great care to keep your information safe and we’ll never share it with others without your express permission. We never share your data with 3rd parties except to help us deliver our own services. These are just the key points. If you need detail, keep reading.
What information do we collect, how do we gather it and why?
The information collected about you is the information you choose to fill in when you register yourself as a member.
For example. Name, Email and Country.
This information is required for you to be able to log in and post a classified ad or contact a seller.
It is important for us that you can get access to the information we have about you and if you wish, you can request your data at any time to be deleted or request what information is stored. This is done by sending us an e-mail (email@example.com). Important, to ensure that the right user request the information you need to attach a photo of your driver's license or passport.
To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
- Your email and password if you have selected to have it remembered. This cookie never stores your email or password.
- Session cookies that expire when you close your browser (or if you stay inactive for a certain time). These cookies helps us keep track of your settings during the visit to our website. These cookies are necessary for our website’s functionality.
- Third-party cookies are used by third-parties. We don’t have any direct control over these cookies; however, if you do not want to your browser to save any of these cookies you can open your browser in private/incognito mode and the cookies will be deleted when you close the browser. The cookies are used for: Measuring our website traffic, Sharing tools and advertisements (see below).

Measuring our visitors
We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.
The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.
Social networks such as Facebook and Twitter
These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like” and “Tweet” buttons.
To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example Facebook use this to say “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.
Social networks therefore could know that you’re viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.
If you sign up for a service
When you sign up for any of our services – we will record specific personal information about you, such as your name and email address.
We may send you email notifications regarding your service (such as if you have an aircraft for sale and someone wants to contact you ).
We will never provide your personal information or email address to any third parties except where they are specifically employed to help deliver our own services, as detailed above. You can always opt out from these emails by clicking the opt out link in the bottom of the email.
Pilotmix take many precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. These precautions include:
- Hardware stored in secured data centers behind firewalls
- All access to information restricted by password or secure keys
- Restrictions to what information can be accessed via any location
- Whilst we take great care to ensure any confidential information remains protected we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the Internet.
Of course you are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential. Nobody at Pilotmix will ever ask you for your password, so please don’t trust anybody asking you for it.
