Our Terms & Policies

General Terms & Policies

Each time a recording is started, the users acknowledges receipt of, and adherence to, these terms and policies.

The MyFlight3D app and website is not to be used as a source for planning or navigation.

MyFlight3D is not responsible for any interference that occurs with aircraft instruments.

MyFlight3D is not responsible for any deviation in checklists, procedures, regulations, etc.

MyFlight3D is not responsible for any incidents or accidents that occur during any phase of flight.

MyFlight3D only suggests direct interaction with the app interface before engine start, and after engine shutdown.

MyFlight3D bears no responsibility or correlation to the data entered into the created animation replays (which is inherently associated with the location and maneuvers being executed).

MyFlight3D does not provide, direct, or recommend any instructional techniques or procedures. Always consult a certified instructor, the aircraft's flight manual, and local regulations prior to instructing, demonstrating, creating or modifying any established procedures or regulations.

Storage Policy

We feel the storage quota imposed on each user's account is very gracious. Ultimately, we allow more storage than we believe a person can physically fly per year. Since the accounts are free to create, directly imposing a stringent quota would simply drive users to create multiple free accounts. The details below describe the constraints applied to your account.

File sizes are limited to:
1. No smaller than 1 kilobyte (approximately 5 minutes of logging)
2. No larger than 300 kilobytes (approximately 7 hours of logging)

Your device, however, will allow file sizes outside of this range. These constraints are applied when the flights are uploaded to your account. The app will display warnings if the file attempting to be uploaded is outside of this range.

Users are limited to 10 file uploads per day. Based on the numbers outlined on this page, users should have no more than 1095 megabytes of recorded GPS data in their account per year. I know right, that's a ton of storage. That much is free and we store it forever for you.

Want to see what 7 hours of flying every day for a whole year looks like:
10 flights * 300 kilobytes * 365 days/year = 1095 megabytes per year

Nobody flies that much (ie: an average of 7 hours per day), that's why we feel it is enough for every user.

Q. "Sometimes I legitimately fly 10~12 hours per day, can I only upload 7 of those hours?"
A. You will be able to upload all of those 10~12 hours because they're most likely broken down into 5-2hr flights, or 4-3hr flights, etc. That is still less than 10 uploads per day. And the chances are pretty good that no one flies that much every day of the year. Even if one was to fly 10~12 hours every other day, that averages 5~6 hours per day, still below our 7 hour per day average.

Account Expiration Accounts will expire if not utilized in a 14 month period. The date of each login is stored and a monthly scan checks the login activity of each account. At 12 and 13 months, a notice email will be sent to the username. At 14 months, if the account has not logged in, it will be removed.

Users may share recorded flights with others, but only a maximum of 5 flights per day may be shared.

Why So Many Restrictions? If you're wondering why we impose these restrictions, when we just said that a person can't even fly that much per year, the answer is: Security. These are simple measures to keep your data and our servers safe.

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. We protect it with these fundamental principles:

We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. Any personal information users supply via the app or website is at the users' discretion. MyFlight3D will never take this information from any input source via any possible methods. We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law or protect our rights. Any personal information that is created will be done at the user's discretion. It will not be visible to any other users, and it will not be collected or used by MyFlight3D. If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.

MyFlight3D operates MyFlight3D.com and produces MyFlight3D Mobile, an iOS application available for download from iTunes App Store. It is MyFlight3D’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information users provide while operating our websites or apps.

Website Visitors and App Customers
MyFlight3D's app and website is unlike most websites in that it collects almost zero information. We simply feel that it doesn't matter. The only information that the website logs is the number of data file uploads per user, per day. This is in line with our "Storage Policy - Upload Limit" (described above) which is necessary to protect our servers from malicious attacks.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
MyFlight3D does not disclose personally-identifying information because we don't gather any. Conversation...complete.

Aggregated Statistics
MyFlight3D may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites or use of its apps. MyFlight3D does not display this information publicly or provide it to others.
Examples of this include:
Most commonly visited pages
Most commonly selected replay settings
Average data file size
Navigation paths logged for future efficiency increase
This is meta-data (ie: data about data) that is not associated with your email address or identity.

Cookies
A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. MyFlight3D uses cookies to help MyFlight3D identify and track visitors, their usage of MyFlight3D website, and their website access preferences. MyFlight3D visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using MyFlight3D’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of MyFlight3D’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers
If MyFlight3D, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of MyFlight3D may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads
Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by MyFlight3D and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Location-Based Services
The MyFlight3D app does collect precise real-time geographic location data, but only during the recording process which is initiated and terminated by the user. MyFlight3D does not use or share this data with anyone in any conceivable fashion. It is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used solely for the purposes of creating the 3D animation replays described on this site. When creating the animated replay on the MyFlight3D website, any information the user enters which correlates personally identifiable information with the location data is solely at the discretion of the user, and MyFlight3D bears no responsibility for such actions.

Privacy Policy Changes
Although most changes are likely to be minor, MyFlight3D may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in MyFlight3D’s sole discretion. MyFlight3D encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site or apps after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change. MyFlight3D is under no obligation to inform users of changes to our Terms and Policies.
