AirFast is committed to all aspects of data protection and takes seriously its duties under the Data Protection Act 1998 and the protection of its subscriber’s confidential information.
This policy sets out how AirFast deals with its subscriber’s personal information and is relevant for directors, personnel and third-party service collaborators.
The AirFast Finance Manager shall be AirFast’s Data Protection Officer and is responsible for the implementation of this policy.
AirFast has notified the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) of it’s use of subscriber’s personal data in various areas of the company’s activity.
The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) builds on the existing Data Protection legislation to help ensure that personal data is handled securely. AirFast takes this very seriously: we keep our policies and procedures under continuous review to ensure that we comply with all regulations. One of the new requirements is for permission to be given to use personal data. We hold information about AirFast subscribers that we use to communicate with them regarding the Company’s activities as well as to ensure the smooth running of the internet access services which we provide.
The following are the principles by which we operate
1. AirFast will use subscriber’s data to record their engagement with us and to manage their subscription and technical maintenance of their service. We will occasionally use subscriber’s data to communicate with them regarding AirFast activities that may be of interest. We will never sell subscriber data to third parties.
2. AirFast works My IT Wizard Ltd (MyITWL), to provide additional services and support. It is necessary for MyITWL to have access to AirFast subscriber data to be able to provide these services. MyITWL has a Data Protection Policy which mirrors that of AirFast.
3. If a subscriber leaves the AirFast service, their details are erased from AirFast’s database and similarly that of MyITWL

This includes wilful damage, accidental damage, theft or any other loss that may occur other than equipment failure covered under our service warranty. Replacement fees may apply if the equipment does not meet the above. See Fees and Other Charges.
1.8 Our service can only be guaranteed if we have clear line of sight between the transmitter (node) and your receiver. Obstacles including trees and buildings may influence the resulting service.
1.9 We will test the service we have installed and confirm it meets our specification and your expectations. All speed testing will be from one of our approved laptops using a spare LAN port on the router we have supplied. Wireless speed testing is not an indicator of a reliable speed test due to the nature of wireless technology.
1.10 Speed testing can be carried out using an approved speed testing facility at http://speedtest.net Please note that all free to use speed testers are subjective and rely on advertising to promote their sites. Results will vary and are only an indication of speed and service.
3.1 The AirFast.net service is subject to a minimum period of 24 consecutive months. The AirFast.net service and the minimum period of 24 consecutive months will start on the day we install the service (the service start date). We will agree a date with you for delivery and installation of any equipment, but all dates are estimates and we cannot guarantee we will meet them.

We manage our network using prioritisation techniques to ensure that during busy periods time sensitive applications such as VoIP, email, gaming and web browsing are given priority over bandwidth intensive, non-time-sensitive applications such as Peer-to-Peer (P2P) file sharing. Traffic shaping is used to a greater or lesser extent on all our Broadband Services.

Broadband Service Usage
7.3.1 Our Broadband residential Internet access package, designed for fast web browsing, speedy email collection and to offer a general improvement over the technology available through standard Internet access.
7.3.2 Our Broadband is not designed to sustain prolonged high-bandwidth, heavy-usage applications such as continuous Peer-to-Peer (P2P) file sharing, heavy streaming video, binary downloads or other intensive uses.
7.3.3 Our Broadband is designed to ensure that Customers using the package as intended receive the optimum experience. High-bandwidth use, as outlined above, is therefore not recommended. Where the Service has been deemed to have been used inappropriately or to the detriment of the overall Service, AirFast.net reserves the right to take action against the account in question.
