Membership at TACA Virtual Airline is contingent on providing one’s name and a valid, verifiable email address. These are the only personal details we require. Members may voluntarily provide additional information such as instant messenger addresses and physical location coordinates; however, this is completely optional. We obfuscate our pilot locations by a random distance of +/- 1.5 miles on each display. TACA Virtual Airline also records the IP address, host name, and browser information for every request and connection made to our website and/or ACARS server software. These records are retained indefinitely. This information is not publicly released and is retained for the use of TACA Virtual Airline staff in providing new features and ensuring compliance with TACA Virtual Airline policies and procedures.


We may use the information you provide about yourself or others to fulfill requests for our products or services, respond to inquiries about offerings, and offer other products, programs, or services that may be of interest. We sometimes use this information to communicate with you, such as notifying you when we make changes to subscriber agreements, fulfilling a request by you for an online newsletter, or contacting you about your account. We sometimes use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our websites and to customize your internet experience. We may also use this information to analyze site usage and offer you products, programs, or services. We will disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We may also disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency’s request. Please note that if TACA Virtual Airline is sold or otherwise disposed of, including through merger, consolidation, or sale of assets, the relevant customer database, including personally identifiable information we may possess about you, may be sold, disposed of, transferred, or otherwise disclosed as part of that transaction. Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Notice. Inadvertent disclosures may result, for example, when third parties misrepresent their identities in asking the site for access to personally identifiable information about themselves for purposes of correcting possible factual errors in the data.
