Privacy Policy



The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on May 25, 2018, and applies to the processing of personal data in the EU. It imposes extensive obligations on data controllers and processors and enhances protections for data subjects. While the GDPR is a directly applicable law in all Member States, it also allows for certain aspects to be implemented further in national legislation. In Ireland, the Data Protection Act 2018 is the national law that, among other things, provides additional provisions to enforce the GDPR.
Our Data Protection Officer is named Shamrock Virtual Staff, for clarity. To process your registration and verify your identity, we only collect basic data such as your Name, Email, Date of Birth, Location, and either a VATSIM or IVAO ID to ensure you meet the legal age requirements. Your personal information is not made available to anyone, nor is it shared with any third parties. We do not engage in the sale of your data. While data processing may occur in other countries due to the nature of the internet and cloud storage, as of the release date of this policy, our servers operate solely within the Island of Ireland.

When it comes to statistical data and information, we share your flight hours and full PIREP data on our website, while ensuring that your personal information remains confidential. We have a strict policy of not collecting sensitive personal information, such as details related to ethnicity, political opinions, religious beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health, sexual life, or criminal record. The lawful basis for using your information is twofold: Firstly, processing is necessary for the identification and verification of your identity and age suitability for maintaining an account on our servers. Secondly, you have provided specific consent for the processing of your data, as agreed upon before creating an account with us.

By continuing to use our services and website, you are indicating your agreement to our privacy policy and any reasonable updates that may occur. If you do not agree with the terms at any point, we kindly ask that you refrain from using our website or providing us with your personal information. You have the option to withdraw your consent for us to utilize your data at any time. We will adhere to this request within the constraints of any existing contractual obligations. Upon the termination of our association, you are entitled to request the deletion of your data. We will comply with this request within the bounds of any overarching legal obligations. You have the right to request information about the data we hold about you. Simply reach out to our Data Protection Officer, and upon verification, we will furnish you with the relevant information.
