Additionally, Delta may disclose your Personal Information where and when required or permitted by law to do so.
Processing and Storage of Information
Some parties that process or store Personal Information for us may be located in the United States.

Information Gathered with Technology
How Does Delta Protect the Personal Information It Collects?
To protect information about you from loss, theft, unauthorized access and disclosure or use, we maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards and security measures in keeping with industry standards and practices. For example, all guest information is protected from unauthorized access through the use of secure passwords, user logons or other security procedures. Within Delta, we restrict access to information about you to those Delta employees who need to know the information in order to perform their jobs, such as confirming your reservation, responding to your concerns or notifying you about new or existing services. All Delta affiliates, suppliers, agents, employees and other parties performing services on our behalf who handle Personal Information are bound to maintain the confidentiality of all Personal Information and may not use the information for any unauthorized purpose. We regularly review and adjust these safeguards (including security and encryption methods) in response to advances in technology. Please be aware that despite our best efforts, no data security measures can guarantee 100% security all of the time.
Accuracy and Access
We are committed to ensuring that the Personal Information we hold for each individual is accurate, up-to-date and complete. You have the right to access your Personal Information in our files and to update or remove that information as necessary, subject to any legal restrictions that would prohibit such action. To access your Personal Information, please contact our Privacy Officer by telephone, e-mail or post at the numbers and address provided below. Please be sure to specify what information requires updating or removal. In order to ensure that information we maintain on file, and if applicable, your Delta Privilege Profile, is up to date, we recommend that you access your on-line profile from time to time. You can do so by visiting our website and logging in to your account or contacting our customer service representative.
If, upon review, you wish to deactivate your Delta Privilege Profile, or update your Personal Information, we will endeavour to do so in a timely manner. Occasionally, information that you request to be removed will be retained in certain files for a period of time in order to properly resolve disputes or to troubleshoot problems. In addition, some types of information may be stored on “back up” systems or within log files due to technical constraints, or financial or legal requirements. Therefore, you should not always expect that all of your Personal Information will be completely removed from our databases in response to your request.
