The data protection laws in these countries may be different from, and less stringent than the visitor’s country of residence.

2. Application of Generally Accepted Privacy Principles (GAPP)
Jeppesen is committed to providing reasonable protection from loss, inappropriate use, or inappropriate disclosure of the Personal Information that is entrusted to the company. In an effort to provide protection that is as consistent as possible for all individuals who provide Personal Information to the company, Jeppesen has established a privacy program that is based on the Generally Accepted Privacy Principles (GAPP) identified by the Assurance Services Executive Committee (ASEC) of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the Assurance Services Development Board (ASDB) of the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CICA). These ten principles (covering Management, Notice, Choice and Consent, Collection, Use and Retention, Access, Disclosure to Third Parties, Security for Privacy, Quality, Monitoring and Enforcement) were developed to serve as a universal framework of privacy best practices that companies can use to evaluate their programs and develop sound policies and practices.
Accountability for Data Privacy at Jeppesen has been assigned to the Data Privacy Office (DPO). Responsibilities of the DPO include:
- Ensuring that processes have been implemented for the appropriate collection, use, disclosure and retention of personal information in accordance with applicable law and the Generally Accepted Privacy Principles (GAPP).
- Ensuring that privacy plans in compliance with Data Privacy laws and regulations are documented in writing and implemented.
- Provision of guidance, consultation and training regarding privacy issues.
Compliance with privacy plans including:
- Performing monitoring and verifications for compliance with existing privacy plans. Verifications include ongoing monitoring and enforcement of privacy plans.
- Coordination and alignment with Boeing’s Global Privacy Office whenever appropriate
- Follow up on deficiencies or opportunities for improvement. The DPO will maintain verification records and respond to inquiries or complaints.
- Maintenance and assignment of data privacy training materials
- Assurance that reliable methods for dispute resolution and incident response are available and clearly communicated
- Providing support to business owners by assessing products and services to ensure compliance with applicable privacy laws
Jeppesen will notify individuals about the purposes for which they collect, use, disclose and retain information about them. Jeppesen will also provide information about how individuals can contact Jeppesen with any inquiries or complaints, the types of third parties to which it discloses the information and the choices and means Jeppesen offers for limiting its collection, use, disclosure and retention.
2.3 Choice and Consent
Jeppesen will give individuals the opportunity to choose when their Personal Information will be disclosed to a third party or used for a purpose incompatible with the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized.
Personal Information is collected for the reasons provided in the Uses Permitted. This defined scope is included in the Product or Service privacy notice. If the scope requires redefinition, the privacy notice will be reissued and Data Collection will be subject to 2.3 Choice and Consent once again.
2.4.1 Special Notice Regarding Children
Jeppesen Sites are not designed for, nor is Personal Information knowingly collected from children under the age of 13. Children under 13 years of age should not provide Personal Information to Jeppesen or Affiliates.

Personal Information may also be collected in connection with "liking", posting, commenting or otherwise contacting Jeppesen or its Affiliates via web pages or content that Jeppesen administers on third-party sites such as Facebook or YouTube.
Jeppesen advertises online in a variety of ways, including displaying ads across the Internet and on the Sites. Information is collected about which ads are displayed, which ads are clicked on, and on which web page the ad was displayed.
The Sites and some services and advertisements may contain "cookies." A cookie is a piece of data that is stored on an individual’s hard drive and records preferences and other data about a visit to the Sites. Like many websites, Jeppesen.com does not currently respond to “do not track” browser headers. Clear gifs (also known as web beacons) may also be used on the Sites. E-mails sent may include a clear gif that tells whether an e-mail was received or opened, or if a link within the e-mail was clicked. Individuals may opt out of receiving marketing communications. Jeppesen or its Affiliates may also use a third party advertising company to display ads on the Sites.
NOTE: If cookies are blocked, some portions of the Sites may not function properly.
2.4.5 Collection and use of location data
When using Jeppesen sites, actual location information may be collected and processed.
