DATA PRIVACY POLICY


The protection of your personal data is of particular concern to us. Therefore, we process your personal data only in accordance with the applicable data protection laws. We take careful precautions to protect your data from loss, manipulation, and unauthorized access. The precautions are in accordance with the current state of technology. In this Data Privacy Policy we inform you about the most important aspects in the context of data processing on our website.

Data processed

We process various categories of your personal data, which are dependent on whether you visit our website, subscribe to our newsletter, agree to the use of cookies and which you allow, or if you enter into a business relationship with us.

Data processed when you visit our website

You can visit our website without providing any information about yourself, and we save only the initial access data in a log. We understand initial access data to mean the date and time of access, the IP address in anonymous form (the last three digits are not displayed), the session ID, the pages accessed on our website and for how long it was accessed, the name of the website from which our website was accessed and information about the browser used. We evaluate this data exclusively to improve our website, and no conclusions are drawn about your person. You can also disable the storage of this anonymized data via opt-out.

Data processed with consent to cookies

If you agree to the use of cookies, note that each cookie processes different data about you (e.g. IP address, location, browser language, user behaviour, etc.). You can find more detailed information about the cookies we use under Section 6 of this Data Privacy Policy and in our Cookie Policy.

Data processed when contacting us

If you contact us by e-mail or a contact form on the website, we will log the date and time of receipt, the sender and recipient, and the subject line if it is an e-mail. The data you give us will be stored for processing of the request and in the event of follow-up questions, and transferred to the responsible department, but only within AXIS Flight Training GmbH.

Data processed in a business relationship

Customers are persons who purchase an AXIS product. Vendors and external service providers are persons who provide products or services to the company and invoice them accordingly. Both enter into a business relationship with AXIS. For this purpose personal data will be processed for marketing and order handling purposes. Interested parties are persons who are interested in an AXIS product and/or service and wish to be updated regularly. For this purpose personal data will be processed for marketing purposes. The consent of the customer or interested party forms the legal basis for processing personal data.

In addition, we will assign you an internal customer or supplier number.

Your data will be stored as long as necessary for the fulfilment of the contract or the performance of pre-contractual measures. If your personal data is processed by our accounting system, as in the case of a contract being concluded, it will be stored until the end of the prescribed period under the statutory obligations of retention. Per applicable tax regulations this period is 7 years. For the purposes of product liability, we store selected data (name, address, product and date) for 10 years.

Data processing when applying for a job

Applicants are all persons who apply for a vacant position in the company or by means of an unsolicited application. By submitting your application to us, you agree that the data collected as part of the application and the data contained in the documents sent with the application, as well as data obtained in the course of any interview (hereinafter collectively referred to as “data”) may be stored by AXIS in an applicant database for the purpose of coordinating and processing the application.

Period of retention

In principle, we store your data only for as long as it is needed. By default, your data is stored as long as specified in the respective sections. In individual cases, however, a shorter or longer retention period may apply, e.g. due to legal obligations that AXIS must comply with.

Purpose of processing

We process the data collected from you primarily for the purpose of contract fulfilment or to carry out pre-contractual procedures. Furthermore, we are subject to statutory obligations to process data, e.g. for reasons of applicable tax and commercial law provisions, as well as anti-corruption and anti-money laundering regulations. We process data, such as your name and e-mail address, that you have voluntarily made available to us, on the basis of your consent or our legitimate interest for the purpose of customer service, for our own advertising purposes, such as sending out promotional offers, advertising brochures and newsletters (in paper and electronic form), as well as for the purpose of referring to an existing or previous business relationship with the customer (reference notice). Such data processing takes place on the basis of the applicable statutory provisions as well as on the basis of your consent and for the purpose of fulfilling the contract.

It is important to us that we comply fully with all statutory data protection regulations. Your personal data is processed on the basis of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the national laws derived from it. Your personal data is secure with us.

In certain cases, however, your personal data will be transferred to contract data processors, if they provide sufficient guarantees of lawful and secure use of data and if they are contractually obligated to comply with the principles described in this Data Privacy Policy and statutory regulations. We reserve the right to transfer your personal data to another company as part of business restructuring or company mergers, provided that said company undertakes to comply with our principles in connection with the processing of personal data and has its registered office either within the European Union or in a third country with appropriate data protection. We also reserve the right to transfer your personal data to third parties if we are required to do so by law, by a final judgement of the relevant court or by an order of the relevant authority.
