Privacy policy

When you respond to an airspace change proposal, the CAA collects and stores your name, post code area, and email address for the purpose of classifying and assessing feedback on airspace changes. 

Why we process your personal information

The processing of your personal data is necessary for the purposes of our, or our third party’s, legitimate interests and does not affect your fundamental rights and freedoms as a data subject. 

Who sees your personal information and why

We need to share your personal data with the sponsor of the airspace change you are providing feedback on, for the purpose of classifying and assessing feedback on airspace changes. Airspace change sponsors are all based in the UK and are usually airports or air traffic service providers.

When you respond to a Stage 3 airspace change consultation, you will do so using the CAA’s consultation tool, Citizen Space. This is operated by Delib (the data processor). More information about how your information will be treated when you respond to a consultation can be found by clicking on this link.

How long we keep your personal information and why

We will delete all personal information you have provided us with associated with the airspace change ten years after that change is completed.
