The Service is not directed to individuals under the age of 18, and we request that these individuals not provide personal information through the Site. If your child has submitted Personal Information and you would like to request that such Personal Information be removed, please contact us as explained below under CONTACTING US.
Our Site's registration form requires users to give us contact information (name and e-mail address). We use customer contact information from the registration form to send the user information about our Company. The customer's contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary. You may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.
Our Site uses an order form for customers to request information, products, and services. We collect visitor's contact information (e-mail address) and financial information (ie: their account or credit card numbers). Contact information from the order form is used to send orders and information about our Company to our customers. The customer's contact information is also used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary. You may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the user for products and services.
Our online surveys ask visitors for contact information (e-mail address) and demographic information (such as their zip code, age, or income level). We use contact data from our surveys to send the user information about our Company. The customer's contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary. Demographic and profile data is also collected at our Site. We use this data to tailor our visitor's experience at our Site, showing them content that we think they might be interested in, and displaying the content according to their preferences. We do not sell or share this information with third parties.
Unless we specifically request or invite it, we ask that you not send us, and you not disclose, any sensitive personal information (e.g., Social Security numbers, information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or philosophical beliefs, health, sex life or sexual orientation, criminal background, or trade union membership, or biometric or genetic data for the purpose of uniquely identifying an individual) on or through the Site or otherwise to us.

Your Privacy Rights and International Privacy Practices
Controls And Choices
Certain users (such as users in the EU) have certain legal rights to obtain confirmation of whether Heathrow holds personal data about them, to access personal data Heathrow holds about them (including, in some cases, in portable form), and to obtain its correction, update, amendment or deletion in appropriate circumstances. Those users may also object to Heathrow’s uses or disclosures of personal data, to request a restriction on its processing, or withdraw any consent, though such actions typically will not have retroactive effect. They also will not affect Heathrow’s ability to continue processing data in lawful ways (for example, if such user opts out of the use of such user’s e-mail for direct marketing, Heathrow might still decide to contact such user by e-mail regarding potential fraud on such user’s account).
The rights and options described above are subject to limitations and exceptions under applicable law, including, without limitation, the GDPR. In situations in which Heathrow processes personal data on behalf of You, Heathrow may refer the request to the relevant user and cooperate with their handling of the request, subject to any special contractual arrangement with that user.
The Company is committed to the free exercise of these rights without fear of being denied the opportunity to use the Site. To exercise any right or make any request, please notify us in accordance with the "CONTACT US" section below. We will respond to your request in accordance with the applicable law, if any, that governs the collection, use and deletion of your data and information. The requested deletion will be as comprehensive as possible but is always subject to issues outside of our control, including applicable regulations and laws, your actions and the actions of third parties. It is important to note that we may retain a copy of the information for archival purposes and to avoid identity theft or fraud.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority of your habitual residence if you consider that the processing of your personal data infringes applicable law. However, Heathrow encourages any such user to contact Heathrow first at email@example.com and Heathrow will do its very best to promptly address such user’s issue(s) and resolve the concern(s).
