- Internet OnAir Availability
While SITAONAIR endeavours to ensure that Internet ONAIR is normally available (while the aircraft is in cruise phase) during your flight, we do not guarantee that it will be uninterrupted or error free during the course of your flight.

For your protection, your credit card or other payment card information, as well as any personal information that is sent by us from the aircraft to the ground is encrypted using secure socket layer ("SSL") technology which attempts to prevent unauthorized persons from reading that information. SSL technology is the standard for data encryption and server-side authentication for secure Web-based transactions (such as e-commerce).
You therefore agree to use Internet ONAIR at your own risk. SITAONAIR and the airline on which you are travelling provides no guarantee as to security or availability of service.

Your data will be stored by SITAONAIR in its data storage center in the Netherlands. However, given the international nature of our services, your data may be transferred to and stored in countries with varied levels of data protection. This may occur for various reasons, depending on where SITAONAIR collects your data or to comply with applicable laws. Where this is the case, SITAONAIR will ensure it protects your data to the highest level required under the local data privacy laws and, if higher, EU data privacy laws.

- PUBLIC FORUMS
SITAONAIR uses Essential / Functional Cookies to ensure the correct navigation and functional aspects of the Internet ONAIR Portal. A cookie is a small data file that is sent by a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive when using a web browser. It allows SITAONAIR to identify you when you use Internet ONAIR. Internet ONAIR utilizes both session and persistent cookies.
A session Cookie, also known as an in-memory cookie, transient cookie or non-persistent cookie, exists only in temporary memory while the user navigates the website. Web browsers normally delete session Cookies when the user closes the browser.
A persistent Cookie does not expire when the web browser is closed as session Cookies do. Instead, a persistent Cookie expires at a specific date or after a specific length of time. This means that, for the Cookie's entire lifespan its information will be transmitted to the server every time the user visits the website that it belongs to, or every time the user views a resource belonging to that website from another website. These cookies are reset if the expiration time is reached or the user manually deletes the Cookie.
The “help” feature on most browsers will tell you how to stop your browser from accepting new Cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new Cookie and how to disable Cookies altogether. (Please note that disabling Cookies may adversely affect your browsing experience). You can also disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash Cookies, by changing the add-on settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer.
