My Policy On Your Privacy
Cookies, Affiliate, Copyright, & Liability
Terms of Agreement


Hi, I'm John Salt, the owner of "RC Helicopter Fun.com".

My own privacy is very important to me when I visit other websites; so I fully understand how important your privacy is to you while you are visiting my website. 

I strive to maintain the highest standards of honesty, fairness, and integrity within the operations of my website, and I apply exactly the same standards when I deal with the information you trust me with.

I’ve taken steps under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to make sure any information you give me is not only secure, but also within your control.

Europe's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was introduced specifically to protect the data of individuals. Although at present it only protects people in Europe, my view is that its high standards should be a benchmark of online protection for everyone, worldwide.

I value every single visitor who spends time on my website. I therefore want all my visitors to have the same high level of privacy protection, control, and link transparency that GDPR compliance mandates; regardless of where you call home on this big blue ball.

This page outlines the types of personal information I receive and collect when you use RC Helicopter Fun.com, as well as some of the steps I take to safeguard information. This will help you make an informed decision about sharing personal information with me.

ADVERTISING COOKIES

I use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on my site. These companies use cookies and web beacons in their ads to ascertain how many times you've seen an advertisement. This information is shared with these companies, but does not provide them with any personally identifiable information for cookie or web beacon use, so they cannot personally identify you with that information from our website.

RC Helicopters are not toys! They can be dangerous to your health and those around you.

Risks go up substantially when getting complacent & overly comfortable and ignoring common sense.
