Is it possible that we are allowed to see them because they do not care?
If humans are observing a lesser speicies then they do not care if they are observed in the distance they only try and avoid contact that could alter the actions of the observed.
In The Invisible College (E.P. Dutton, 1975) Vallee posits the idea of a "control system." UFOs and related phenomena are "the means through which man's concepts are being rearranged." Their ultimate source may be unknowable, at least at this stage of human development; what we do know, according to Vallee, is that they are presenting us with continually recurring "absurd" messages and appearances which defy rational analysis but which nonetheless address human beings on the level of myth and imagination.

Let's asume that life on other planets are common, and millions of planets in our Galaxy has intelligent life in various stages, then an dominant or a species of intelligence beyond our imagination is traveling around in the galaxy or Universe as they please.
That would make us insignificant and not so rare as an intelligent life form, and no alien really care about us.
What we see, if we are seeing anything, are just scouts, maybe we are on some alien Discovery channel, with a David Attenborough like narrator.

For a short answer to the question you pose--and I'm sure it will not suffice to your mind--is that you are thinking like a human and )can)not like an alien that may have little regard for individual human thought patterns among those on the globe they oversee.
To help you get a grasp on that concept, religious or not, think of why a believer human can never understand the way a highly held God power does its work. Or why an ant can never understand the reason for the descending foot.
There are some who have argued that the modus operandi of UFOs more closely resembles an attempt to modify the psyches of those who see and hear about them than any kind of scientific research project.
