This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.

INFORMATION www.wingsoverdallas.org (and related Commemorative Air Force domains) GATHERS AND TRACKS:
www.wingsoverdallas.org and associated domains gathers two types of information about users:
1. We collect information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. This information may include your name, e-mail address and other personally identifying information. We request this information if you opt-in to receive our electronic newsletters, to participate in our message boards or forums, to email a friend, from participation in polls and surveys and to receive special offers and notices from us or our advertisers and sponsors:
Users who opt-in to receive the following free services are required to submit certain personally identifying information:
a. Electronic newsletters (Dispatches - VIP Newsletter)
www.wingsoverdallas.org gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe to our free electronic newsletter. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every newsletter that points users to the subscription management page.
b. Message boards/forums
Users of the site's Message Boards and Forums must register separately for these services (both are free of charge) in order to post messages. To register for these services the user is required to supply a username, password and email address.
c. "E-mail this to a friend" Service
Our site's users can choose to electronically forward a link, page, or documents to someone else by clicking "e-mail this to a friend." The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email.
We may offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their opinions with other users and see what our audience thinks about important issues. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. www.wingsoverdallas.org may use a system to "tag" users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with personally identifying information about individual users.
www.wingsoverdallas.org may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our sponsors, advertisers and partners.
On-Site User Tracking
2. Information www.wingsoverdallas.org gathers through automatically tracking general statistical information about our website and its visitors, such as IP addresses, browsers, pages viewed, number of visitors, etc…. www.wingsoverdallas.org tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. www.wingsoverdallas.org breaks down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).
This information allows us to better tailor our content to user's needs and build a better service for you. It also helps our advertisers and sponsors better understand the demographics of our audience. Because wingsoverhouston.com derives its revenue mainly from ticket sales, providing such aggregated demographic data is essential to keeping our service free to users.
Children under 16
We will never knowingly request personally identifying information from anyone under the age of 16 without requesting parental or guardian consent. However, we have no way of distinguishing the age of individuals who access our website, and if a child under 16 has provided us with personally identifying information without parental or guardian consent, the parent or guardian should contact us to remove the information and opt-out of the services provided through this website.
USE OF INFORMATION
www.wingsoverdallas.org and related Commemorative Air Force domains use the information collected through this website(s) for our internal business purposes, including enhancing your experience in our network of sites, providing interactive or personalized elements on the sites, and to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.
As stated above, we use personally identifying information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in polls, surveys, message boards, and forums. We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on the newsletter), and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing.
When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas, we do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you. We track search terms entered in Search function as one of many measures of what interests our users, but we don't track which particular users enter which particular terms.
www.wingsoverdallas.org creates aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for advertisers, sponsors and partners. This allows our advertisers, sponsors and partners to advertise more effectively, and allows our users to receive advertisements that are pertinent to their needs.
We use or disclose information to resolve disputes, investigate problems or enforce our User Agreement. We also use or disclose information whenever we believe in good faith that the law so requires or if we otherwise consider it necessary to do so to maintain service and improve our products and services.
www.wingsoverdallas.org operates secure data networks protected by industry standard security and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.
No data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be perfectly secure. As a result, while we try to protect your personally identifying information, we cannot ensure or guaranty the security of any information you transmit to us. Any data transmitted to our ticketing service provided is the sole responsibility of the ticket service provider.
OPT-OUT POLICY AND CHANGE TO INFORMATION
We give users options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include:
Opting not to register to receive our electronic newsletters / email(s).

Commemorative Air Force History & Mission
It began with a single plane.
Lloyd Nolen and a small group of ex-service pilots from the Rio Grande Valley in Texas pooled their money to purchase a P-51 Mustang in 1957. They formed a loosely defined organization to share the pleasure and expense of maintaining the Mustang.
A short while later, the group added a pair of F8F Bearcats to the P-51 Mustang. At this point, the mission of the CAF became clear: save an example of every aircraft that flew during World War II ~ a mission no one else was undertaking.
What started as a hobby became an urgent mission to preserve history.
By 1960, the group began to search seriously for other World War II aircraft but it quickly became apparent that few remained in flying condition. By the end of the war, America had produced nearly 300,000 aircraft. Just 15 years later, almost all the warbirds were gone.
Decommissioned and stripped of armament and instruments, most of these proud warriors were scrapped or abandoned. No one, not even the Air Force or Navy, was attempting to preserve the historic aircraft that changed the world forever.
On September 6, 1961, the CAF was chartered as a nonprofit Texas corporation in order to restore and preserve World War II-era combat aircraft. By the end of the year, there were nine aircraft in the CAF fleet.
In 1965, the first museum building consisting of 26,000 square feet was completed at old Rebel Field, Mercedes, Texas. The CAF created a new Rebel Field at Harlingen, Texas, when they moved there in 1968, occupying three large buildings. The CAF fleet continued to grow and included medium and heavy bombers such as the B-29, B-25, B-17 and B-24.
The organization was originally known as the Confederate Air Force. Following a membership vote in 2001 and made effective on January 1, 2002, the organization is now called the Commemorative Air Force.
Collecting aircraft for nearly a half a century, the CAF now ranks as one of the largest air forces in the world. Today the CAF has approximately 13,000 members and a fleet of more than 165 aircraft representing more than 60 different types—including planes from several foreign countries and other military conflicts since World War II.
The Headquarters of the CAF is located in Dallas. CAF members live in every state and 28 foreign countries. In 26 states and four foreign countries, our members have joined together and formed units to foster camaraderie and, in many cases, actively support one or more of the classic military aircraft operated by the CAF.
"A generation which ignores history has no past and no future" – Robert Heinlein
The CAF was founded to acquire, restore and preserve in flying condition a complete collection of combat aircraft which were flown by all military services of the United States, and selected aircraft of other nations, for the education and enjoyment of present and future generations of Americans.
More than just a collection of airworthy warplanes from the past, the CAF's fleet of historic aircraft, known as the CAF Ghost Squadron, recreate, remind and reinforce the lessons learned from the defining moments in American military aviation history.
