Email Marketing

If you subscribe to any of our email mailing lists, the email address that you submit to us will be forwarded to Campaign Monitor who provides our email marketing services. Campaign Monitor is an American based company. The email address that you submit will not be stored within this website’s own database or in any of our internal computer systems. Your email address will remain within Campaign Monitor’s database for as long as we continue to use Campaign Monitor services for email marketing or until you specifically request removal from the list. You can do this by selecting the unsubscribe link contained in any marketing related email that we send you or by requesting removal via email.

To subscribe to our mailing lists hosted by Campaign Monitor, we operate a double opt-in system. If you submit your information to one of our subscription forms, Campaign Monitor will send you a one-time confirmation email to the address entered asking the user to, in turn, confirm the email address. You are required to follow a link in the email to confirm their subscription. This is the second opt-in. Only after this confirmation is the email address added to the mailing list.

Customer Feedback and Reviews

As part of our ongoing commitment to deliver the highest standards and to conform to ISO 9001:2015, all our customers will receive an email after the service delivery requesting customer feedback. Users will be directed to Survey Monkey, an American based company. Users will be asked to complete a customer satisfaction survey. All responses remain confidential and will give us valuable information on how we can better serve and exceed our customer’s expectations. These emails are deemed a legitimate part of trading under GDPR. You may still receive these email requests, even if you have previously unsubscribed from our email marketing communications.

Our open access training delegates are invited to leave a review of the course they attended. The review is then displayed on the CAAi website. To do this, we share your details (name, course details and email address) with third-party review website, Feefo. Feefo is a UK-based company. Any reviews left will be displayed on the CAAi website. Delegates can opt to leave a review anomalously.


When you attend webinars hosted by CAA International, we use Webex by Cisco, an American company. Their data centres and iPOP locations are spread across North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. By signing up for a CAAi webinar, your data will be securely stored within Webex, enabling us to manage your attendance effectively. Additionally, you’ll receive automated emails from Webex regarding the event, such as registration confirmations, agendas, meeting links, and post-event surveys. Occasionally, we may also send follow-up emails related to the webinar subject matter via our email marketing service provider, Campaign Monitor. You have the option to unsubscribe from these emails anytime by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of each email.

Applying to Work at CAAi

We display all live vacancies on the “Careers” section of our website. To apply for a position, users are redirected to the UK Civil Aviation Authority’s dedicated careers website. When individuals apply to work at the CAA, we will only use the information they supply to us to process their application and to monitor recruitment statistics. Where we want to disclose information to a third party, for example, where we want to take up a reference or obtain a ‘disclosure’ from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) we will not do so without informing the applicant beforehand unless the disclosure is required by law.

Personal information about unsuccessful candidates will be held until after the recruitment exercise has been completed. It will then be destroyed or deleted. We retain de-personalised statistical information about applicants to help inform our recruitment activities or for equality and diversity purposes, but no individuals are identifiable from that data.

Once a person has taken up employment with the CAA, we will compile a file relating to their employment. The information contained in this file will be kept secure and will only be used for purposes directly relevant to that person’s employment. Once their employment with the CAA has ended, we will retain the file in accordance with the requirements of our retention policy and then delete it.
