By providing any information to us via this website, you consent to the collection, use and transfer of your information under the terms of this policy.
Information we collect
In general, you can visit this website without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Our web servers collect the IP addresses, not the e-mail addresses of visitors.
However if you wish to contact us via the form on our Contact page, we may collect the following information:
- contact information including email address
- demographic information such as postcode
Each time you email us or provide us with your details in other ways (i.e. by email, over the telephone, by fax, by mail etc.), the information collected from you may include but is not limited to:
- your name, address, landline or mobile telephone numbers, fax number and e-mail address
- the type of information you are particularly interested in receiving from us
- the information that you voluntarily provide to us
- details of the ways in which you are happy to receive information from us
SHG encourages visitors to this website to contact us with questions and comments. Email addresses and other information given by persons doing so may also be collected in order to facilitate our responses to those enquiries.
You will find that it is not compulsory to provide us with any additional information we request which is not necessary or reasonable in order to provide you with the services you have requested. Please note that our policy is not to ask for sensitive personal data – that is, data relating to: race or ethnic origin, political opinion, religious or other similar beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health, sexual orientation, criminal records. We recommend that you do not provide such information to us. If you choose to do so for any reason, this will mean that you have given (and we accept) your explicit consent for us to use that information for the reasons described in this policy, or as explained at the time you provide the information.
What we do with the information we gather
We require this information to answer your enquiries, understand your needs and provide you with a better service and experience when visiting the Airport.

When other personal information, such as your name and e-mail address, is collected from you with your consent (for example, through the use of online forms or via e-mail etc), we may use the personal information you provide or which we collect via this website for the purposes of:

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Controlling your personal information
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.
The Data Protection Act 1998 (as in force in the United Kingdom) does not apply in St Helena Island. However as an organisation we abide by the spirit of the principles and ensure the same standards are upheld by our agents, stakeholders and affiliated third parties who we authorise to handle our information. All requests for personal information will be handled in strict accordance with these principles, departmental disclosure polices and other applicable laws in so far as is practicable.
If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please write to us via our Contact page. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.
The information you provide to us will be held on the server which hosts this website and may be accessed by or given to our staff and to third parties including our business partners (such as our host provider), law enforcement agencies and suppliers we engage to process data on our behalf, who act for us for the purposes set out in this policy or for other purposes approved by you.
Unless required to do so by law, we will not otherwise share, sell or distribute any of the information you provide to us without your consent.
Internet Based Transfers and Disclaimer

Therefore by browsing this website and communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge and agree to our processing of personal information in this way.
Whereas SHG employs reasonable measures to protect against viruses and other harmful components, the nature of the internet is such that it is impossible to ensure that your access to this website will be uninterrupted or error-free, or that this website, its servers or emails which may be sent by us are free of viruses or other harmful components.
