Personal data is information which relates to an individual and from which he or she can be identified either directly or indirectly through other data which the CAA has or is likely to have in its possession.  By submitting personal data to the CAA, you consent to its collection and use of the information as set out in this Privacy Policy.

We use up-to-date procedures to keep personal data as safe and secure as possible and to protect against unauthorised access or disclosure or loss. Where data is transferred electronically by CAA we will do our best to keep the data secure and to try to prevent unauthorised access.

The CAA will not lease, distribute or sell personal information to third parties other than distribution to CAA branches for administration purposes, unless required by law.

Responsibilities

CAA is the data controller of the personal data we process and therefore is responsible for ensuring its systems, processes, suppliers and its employees comply with data protection laws in relation to the information it handles. 

Any individuals involved in the management and administration of the CAA must abide by this policy when handling personal data and must ensure they are fully informed as to the relevant data protection requirements.
