Last Updated: July 31, 2015

At Skyward IO, Inc. (Skyward) we’re committed to helping you fly your unmanned aerial vehicle with confidence.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of the policy and, in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our homepage or sending you an email notification). We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy whenever you access the Services to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy.

Additionally, we store all the data that you provide about your unmanned aerial vehicle usage, including but not limited to telemetry data, pilot and flight data, and any other information related to your usage of the Services. Further information about how the information in your account may be used can be found in the Skyward Terms of Service that you agree to when you sign up for our Services.

Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive or in device memory that help us to improve our Services and your experience, see which areas and features of our Services are popular and count visits. We may also collect information using web beacons (also known as “tracking pixels”). Web beacons are electronic images that may be used in our Services or emails and help deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness and determine whether an email has been opened and acted upon. For more information about cookies, and how to disable them, please see “Preferences” below.

(c) Information We Collect From Other Sources. We may also obtain information from other sources and combine that with information we collect through our Services. For example, we may collect information about you from third parties, including but not limited to identity verification services, credit bureaus, mailing list providers, and publicly available sources.

  • With vendors, consultants and other service providers who need access to such information to carry out work on our behalf;
  • With marketing partners so they can send you notices about their products or services. If you do not want to receive email marketing communications, see “Preferences” below for opt-out information;
  • In response to a request for information if we believe disclosure is in accordance with any applicable law, regulation or legal process, or as otherwise required by any applicable law, rule or regulation;

We may also share aggregated or de-identified information, which cannot reasonably be used to identify you.


4. Security.
Skyward takes reasonable measures to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. We use advanced security protocols that protect your information and help to ensure a secure online experience. Our website uses secure encryption to protect all credit card ordering information, including your name, address and credit card number, so it cannot be read in transit.

However, despite our deep commitment to your security, we cannot guarantee the total privacy of our system and recommend that you choose a strong, secret password to protect your account. In the event of a data breach by a third party, we will notify you within 10 business days of our discovery of the breach.

We may also retain cached or achieved copies of information about you for a certain period of time.
