The Universal Air Travel Plan, Inc. (hereafter referred to as “UATP”) is committed to maintaining the privacy of personal information. This Privacy Policy describes how UATP treats personal information received about you when you visit the UATP website and/or register for UATP’s Airline Distribution event or other UATP events.

UATP may change the Privacy Policy from time to time and will post any material changes on the UATP website.   Be sure to check this site periodically.

Scope and Nature of the Policy

Data Collected

UATP collects personal information from you and about you if you provide such information to UATP directly, including the email addresses of those who communicate via email, information volunteered by you, such as survey information and/or site registrations, and name and address, telephone number, and fax number.  We also may collect information about your interests in and use of our various programs and services.

When providing any personal information to us, in each instance you will fully understand and clearly consent to the collection and processing of such information, and if applicable, to the transfer of such personal information to other countries or territories.  Any such transfer and processing by us will be in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

For each visitor to our web pages, the UATP web server automatically recognizes the consumer’s domain name and email address (where possible or applicable).  We also collect IP addresses and website usage information from you when you visit our website.  This information helps us evaluate how our visitors use and navigate our website on an aggregate basis, including the number and frequency of visitors to each web page and the length of their visits.

Like many other websites, we use “cookies” to help us gather and store information about visitors to our websites. A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer’s hard disk so that the website can remember who you are. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.

We also use third party analytics providers to collect information about use of certain products and services, including Google Analytics, with a restricted data processing feature that limits use of your data by Google. Google uses cookies to collect information about the products and services usage and to report website trends to us, without identifying any individuals specifically (individual end-users or visitors) to UATP.  Your information, if included, remains anonymous to us.

You can learn about how Google uses data by going to and you can opt-out by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, available at

We may from time to time use cookies to tailor information and advertising of our products and services to your interests based on the webpages and content you visit, but only after you agree to receive such communications.  These cookies gather personal information such as your name, internet protocol address and location. We will not collect these nonessential cookies if you do not agree. We do not provide your information to third parties for advertising purposes.

You may accept or decline these cookies by clicking where indicated when you first visit our website. You may modify the settings in your browser to decline cookies at any time. However, you may not be able to use all features of our site if all cookies are disabled. There are several ways to manage cookies.

How Your Information Is Used

We may use the personal information you provide for responding to your requests for information or to register for Airline Distribution or other events as requested.  We also use information you provide to contact you regarding our programs, such as our conference, or to provide you with information about other UATP programs, events, and services in which you may be interested. We never sell to or share your information with third parties.  If you would like to request that we not use information we collect about you for such marketing purposes, please contact us at

We may also use information we collect at this site to personalize the content, improve the content of our web page, and/or to provide you with UATP product or service offers.

UATP acts as a data processor on behalf of its business customers by operating its transaction processing system and in some cases, by streamlining billing and providing travel managers with detailed activity reports that track a traveler’s name and/or account number, carrier, destination and travel itinerary.  In this capacity, UATP receives personal information from its business customers. UATP acts on the instructions of such customers and does not own or have independent rights to control of the personal information it processes on their behalf.  UATP business customers will obtain consent from you, if applicable, prior to sending your information to UATP for such processing.  UATP will not sell personal information it processes or disclose it to third parties, except as permitted or required by the processing agreement with our business customer or applicable law.

We may disclose personal information in response to legal process, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena.  We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement or other government agency’s request, or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, to comply with legal requirements, or as otherwise required by law. We may share information in the event of a bankruptcy, or a merger, acquisition, joint venture, or other business combination involving us.
