This privacy Notice may be supplemented by additional privacy statements, terms or notices provided to you. When we process your personal data we will comply with relevant data protection and privacy legislation.


Your personal data includes all the information we hold that identifies you or is about you. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data). More information about the types of personal data we collect from you is set out below.


Everything we do with your personal data counts as processing it, including collecting, storing, amending, transferring and deleting it. We will comply with the relevant legislation to make sure that your information is properly protected and used appropriately.

Fly Africa Safaris (Pty) Ltd (company registration number: 2023/826403/07) of 114 Main Road, Greyton, and its affiliates are deemed data controllers. However, where we are provided with information from a third party or a customer relating to a passenger that we are arranging a charter for we are data processors and will only process such data in accordance with the third party’s or the customer’s instructions.


3. What personal data do we collect?


When you purchase a service, purchase a product, contact us or complete an online form, we may collect a variety of information, including, but not limited to; your name, title, job title, mailing address, telephone number, email address, passport details, credit/debit card or bank details.

We may also use your personal data for our legitimate interests, including for the purposes of fraud protection and for training and quality.


Special category data is a category of personal data which requires more protection because it is sensitive in terms of applicable law, such as data concerning health or aircraft performance such as passenger weights.

Health data will only be processed for the purposes of ensuring your safety prior, during and after a flight, and where we have received your consent. By providing this sensitive personal data to us, you explicitly agree that we may collect, use, share with third parties (such as airlines) and transfer such data.
