Data processing on Flightradars.online
a) Personal data – provision and consequences of non-provision
As a natural person, you are not obliged to provide “personal” data without your consent. Flightradars.online does not collect any personal data from you, except for the contact form, which is provided for you to protect your personal interests if you request contact with us. The embedded aircraft radar from Radarbox24.com also does not automatically collect any personal data from you. Radarbox only requests personal data from you upon your request, for example, if you clearly wish to register for a membership with Radarbox24.com out of curiosity. Such a membership is based on an increase in the services offered, for a fee and on a voluntary basis. The non-provision of personal data has no impact on the services we provide to you, as we do not require it for the operation of Flightradars.online.
b) What other data is collected and stored?
Flightradars.online collects and stores information only in server log files to ensure the optimal operation of this website. The following information helps us with troubleshooting, optimizations, and the delivery of our services:
- IP address – truncated (anonymized), i.e., the server automatically truncates the last two digits of all IP addresses accessing Flightradars.online.
- Date and time of the request
- Which document/page is requested or accessed
- Which browser is used, e.g., Safari / Firefox / Chrome
- Which operating system with version number is used, e.g., Windows 10
Flightradars.online stores this data in the server log for a period of 90 days from the first access, after which the server log files are automatically deleted.
c) Who else can access this data?
The hosting provider of this site, which regularly maintains its servers. Also, backup copies for Flightradars.online could be created, which may have access to server log files or personal data under certain circumstances. The hosting provider does not pursue its own purposes in dealing with this data. The hosting provider only works “on behalf and on the instructions” of Flightradars.online. This could be the case, for example, if Flightradars.online ever needs to obtain personal data from you, e.g., via the contact form by email, and requests the hosting provider to create a backup of this website, including server log files and email mailbox.
Note on the aircraft radar on Flightradars.online

Revocation of your consent to data processing – Some data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time.
