Security of your Personal Information

AAIR secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure using the Transport Layer Security (TLS) Protocol. When personal information is transmitted (including PayPal and all emails sent from the AAIR website), it is protected through the use of encryption using TLS. TLS has replaced and has many enhancements over Secure Socket Layer (SSL). TLS is a cryptographic protocol that provides end-to-end security of data sent between applications over the Internet. It is mostly familiar to users through its use in secure web browsing, and in particular the padlock icon that appears in web browsers when a secure session is established.

AAIR strives to take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or alteration of your personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, you acknowledge that:

  1. There are security and privacy limitations inherent to the Internet which are beyond our control; and
  2. Security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this Site cannot be guaranteed.

Subject to certain exceptions set out below, on receipt of a verifiable request from you, we will delete your personal information from our records.

Please note that we may not be able to comply with requests to delete your personal information if it is necessary to:

  1. Complete the transaction for which the personal information was collected to provide a good or service requested by you, or reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform a contract between you and us;
  2. Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; or prosecute those responsible for that activity;
  3. Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act;
  4. Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when our deletion of the information is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of such research, provided we have obtained your informed consent;
  5. Comply with an existing legal obligation.
