OSM Aviation Academy is the “data controller” of all personal information that is collected and used about OSM Aviation Academy students and employees.
We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to do so. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:
We collect and maintain different types of personal information in respect of those individuals who seek to be, are, or were students by us, including the personal information contained in:
As a general rule, OSM Aviation Academy collects personal information directly from you. In most circumstances where the personal information that we collect about you is held by a third party, we will obtain your permission before we seek out this information from such sources. We may utilize the services of third parties in our business and may also receive personal information collected by those third parties during the performance of their services for us or otherwise. Where this is the case, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that such third parties have represented to us that they have the right to disclose your personal information to us. Where permitted or required by applicable law or regulatory requirements, we may collect information about you without your knowledge or consent.
We use your contact details to contact you about enrollment, news, job opportunities, and information that we think may be of interest to you. However, we will not contact you with marketing material unless you have consented to our doing so. You have the right to unsubscribe at any time.
The personal information collected is used and disclosed for our business purposes, including establishing, managing, or terminating your relationship with OSM Aviation Academy. Such uses include:
The legal basis for processing personal information of our students and potential students is that it is either necessary for taking steps prior to entering into a student contract and for performing an agreement with the student (cf. GDPR article 6 no. 1 b), that we are under a legal obligation to process personal information (such as in relation to applicable tax, social security and social protection law and labor law legislation, cf. GDPR article 6 no. 1 a) and sometimes we process personal information in order to achieve our legitimate interest in ensuring the purposes mentioned above (cf. GDPR article 6 no. 1 f).
Further, we process personal information based on consent (cf. GDPR article 6 no. 1 a). This is for instance the case for recruitment, where the potential employee may consent to OSM Aviation Academy retaining information regarding the applicant for a period of time after the application.
We will not share your personal information with third parties except for in circumstances where such sharing is necessary to provide our services or achieve our business objectives as further described in this Policy.
We use external third-party service providers for delivering services on our behalf and on our instructions as set out in a data processing agreement with the relevant service provider. In such instances, we may share your personal information with such parties to the extent necessary to perform such services or to fulfill terms within a student contract with you.
In addition to using cookies and related technologies, we also may permit certain third-party companies to help us tailor advertising that we think may be of interest to our registered users.
Further, your personal information may be disclosed:
Should a transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of OSM Aviation Academy take place, we reserve the right to transfer your information to a third party. This would require that the third party has an appropriate privacy and that the third party undertakes to use your information only for the purpose for which it is intended.
OSM endeavors to maintain physical, technical, and procedural safeguards that are appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information in question. These safeguards are designed to protect your personal information from loss and unauthorized access, copying, use, modification, destruction or disclosure, and all other unlawful forms of processing.
We follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of your personal data and protect it against accidental loss, destruction, or damage. The data you provide to us via our website or associated services is protected using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology. SSL is the industry-standard method of encrypting personal information and credit card details so that they can be securely transferred over the Internet.
Except as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law or regulatory requirements, OSM endeavors to retain your personal information only for as long as it believes is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the personal information was collected (including, for the purpose of meeting any legal, accounting or other reporting requirements or obligations).
When we no longer need your personal data, we will securely delete or destroy it. We will also consider if and how we can minimize over time the personal data that we use, and if we can anonymize your personal data so that it can no longer be associated with you or identify you, in which case we may use that information without further notice to you.
You have the right to request access to and rectification of any information we have collected about you. To help us keep your personal information updated, we advise you to inform us of any changes or discrepancies. In some circumstances, we may not agree with your request to rectify your personal information and will instead append an alternative text to the record in question. You will be notified both when information is rectified and when not, and if so what the reason is for not obeying your request.
You also have the right to erasure and restriction of processing in some instances. You may have a right to receive personal data concerning you in a machine-readable format and to forward the data to another party (data portability), provided that certain conditions are met.
You also have the right to object to the processing, including if the processing is for marketing purposes. In order to object to processing, please contact OSM Aviation.
Where your consent was required for our collection, use, or disclosure of your personal information, you may, at any time, withdraw your consent. All communications with respect to such withdrawal or variation of consent should be in writing.
Your right to access the personal information that we hold about you is not absolute. There are instances where applicable law or regulatory requirements allow or require us to refuse to provide some or all of the personal information that we hold about you. In addition, the personal information may have been destroyed, erased, or made anonymous in accordance with our record retention obligations and practices. In the event that we cannot provide you with access to your personal information, we will endeavor to inform you of the reasons why subject to any legal or regulatory restrictions.
To exercise your rights as a data subject, or if you wish to make a complaint regarding our compliance with this Policy, please contact OSM Aviation Academy. Prior to fulfilling your request, we may request specific information from you to enable us to confirm your identity and right to access as well as to search for and provide you with the personal information we hold about you.
You have a right to complain to OSM Aviation regarding violations of your rights under applicable data protection law. Further, you have a right to complain to the supervisory authority competent to resolve such concerns according to applicable law, but we encourage you to first contact us before filing such a complaint.
