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 will soon be a benchmark of online protection & openness 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.
