The following policy dictates the manner in which Dawson Aircraft collects and uses information gathered from users of this website.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Dawson Aircraft may collect personally identifiable information from Users in a variety of ways, including through online forms and other instances where Users are invited to volunteer such information. Dawson Aircraft may also collect information about how Users interact with our website. This information is obtained through analysis of server logs and through the use of “cookies” placed on user machines. A cookie is a piece of software that a Web server can store on a PC to identify the User should they visit the site again. While not all of the information that we collect from Users is personally identifiable, it may be associated with personally identifiable information that Users provide us through our website.
Dawson Aircraft may use personally identifiable information collected through our website to contact Users regarding products and services offered by Dawson Aircraft and its trusted affiliates. Dawson Aircraft may also use information collected through our website for research regarding the effectiveness of the website and the marketing, advertising and sales efforts of Dawson Aircraft, and its trusted affiliates.
Dawson Aircraft will not disclose information about customers or users without express permission unless the release of said information is required by a Dawson Aircraft trusted affiliate to facilitate action requested by the client, or is required by government subpoena.

Embedded content from other websites

How long we retain your data

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
