well with DUAT.com. Any Netscape or Microsoft browser from version 4 and up
can work fine, although you may need to configure your browser to accept
DTC extensively tests our products to ensure that they work well with
Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator and FireFox. This does
not mean, however, that these are the only browsers that can be used. If
it will work in most cases, but you will be unable to access some
of the more advanced features (such as the new Lookup function).
We strongly recommend that you obtain a newer browser if you do
not have all of these features.
Q. What are cookies?
A. No - not the chocolate chip kind! A "cookie" on
the Internet is simply a small piece of information
transmitted between a web site and your Internet browser. It's like
getting a number at the deli counter that allows you keep your place
in line. The web server gives your browser the ticket with some
information written on it. Then, whenever you click an action in
DUAT.com, your web browser hands this ticket back to the web server
so that the web server can correctly respond to your requests.
Q. Is it safe to let DUAT send me a cookie? Is
my information private?
A. Yes - the only "ingredients"
in your Internet cookie are information the web site already has.
All that your Internet browser does with this information is send
back this information with every request so that DUAT.com can remember
what you are trying to do.
DUAT.com can only read the cookie that it sent to you. DUAT.com
cannot read any other cookies or any other private information that's stored
on your computer. Neither can any other site read the cookie that DUAT.com sent to
DTC uses a cookie to remember who you were when you logged in
so that we can let you see your information (and so that no one
else can see it!)
Note: You must set your browser to allow cookies in order to use
the DUAT.com site (otherwise we cannot retrieve your information).
To set your browser to allow cookies, please see your browser help

- DTC is acting under a contract to the Federal Aviation Administration
to provide the DUAT service. The terms of this contract provide
strict guidelines as to how DTC can use the personal information
provided by the FAA. DTC is also required to follow all applicable
federal laws and FAA regulations concerning privacy act information
and the security of data processing systems connected to the National
Airspace System (NAS).
- DTC does not sell any information about specific individuals
or general DUAT system use that it may have available.
- DTC does not collect any type of "profiling" information
that could be used to track where specific users have been on
- DTC does, however, cooperate with several organizations
to promote the usage of the DUAT system by providing links between
the DUAT service and other web sites. We track only the number
of inbound or outbound links to these sites (and not who
connected) so that we can determine the effectiveness of these
links for promotional purposes. No personal information is provided
or revealed in this tracking.
