Security policy and data confidentiality

Whenever personal data is collected, Air France endeavours to include a link to these general conditions. We reserve the right to modify the general conditions, so we advise you to consult them regularly.


Securing transactions:

We offer you a secured on-line payment system using the latest technology, including the SSL data transfer protocol.
 The SSL server software uses algorithms to encode (or "encrypt") the data that you enter (bank account, address, etc) before it is sent over the Internet. Once encoded, the data remains scrambled during transmission on the Web and can only be read by our server using a unique decoding key. The data is encoded using the SSL security keys 3.0 RC4, RSA 128 bits - 512-bit exchange: the version of the SSL protocol that currently offers the highest level of security, so you can be sure of purchasing your ticket in complete confidentiality and safety.

General recommendations:

When you create an account, you choose an identifier and a password, which you will have to enter if you want to change your account data. Your profile and data are protected by a password so that you, and you alone, have access to this personal data. We advise you not to divulge it to anyone. You are entirely responsible for protecting the confidentiality of your password and/or any data concerning your profile.
Also, you must not forget to disconnect from your profile and to close the window of your browser at the end of the session, especially if you share a computer with other people. This will avoid other users accessing your personal data.
