At London City Airport (LCY) we are committed to protecting the privacy and processing of your personal information while using our websites, products or services. In this policy, we set out how we collect and use personally identifiable information and personal data, including information you provide.
What is personal information?
Personal information is personal data, defined by the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 as “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ('data subject'); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person”.
Special categories of personal data
Certain data is classified under GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018 as “special categories”. This includes:
Data concerning a natural person's sex life
LCY must ask for your consent to process types of personal data and you must give it explicitly. Where we ask you for personal data that falls into any of the above special categories, we will always tell you why and how the information will be used.
Age of consent
You must be 16 years of age to give consent to provide personal information to use LCY websites, products, services and facilities. If you are under the age of 16, consent must first be given by a parent or guardian.
