1. Data Protection
Compliance with the United Kingdom Data Protection Act 1998
underlies all of our personal information privacy practices.
We also have a set of guiding principles which govern how we
use the information that we collect about you on this website.
These principles are:
- We aim to continuously improve our website for
you. We use information about you to help us to do this.
- We give you control over the information that we hold
about you, who is allowed to see it and how it is used.
- We take all reasonable care to safeguard your information through
security policies and secure business processes.
You can see the information that you have provided to us
through the website by accessing the members menu and clicking
your Details page. You can also use this page to change or
delete this information.
2. Sharing and use of information
The over-riding principles we apply are these:
- We, and (where relevant) our credit card processing
agents, will not supply your personal data to a third party
commercial exploitation – thus, you can rest
assured that we will not sell the lists of our Members’ email
addresses to a third party; and the only circumstances
provide any of your personal data to a third party
for non-commercial purposes are those contained in
- Registration Information. Once a Member selects their ship/regiment/squadron
or unit, some or all of the Registration Information
held for that Member, except for the email address, will be available
at the listing for that ship/regiment/squadron or unit.
Email addresses. We do not directly make your email address
available to anyone on any screen of the oldoppos websites.
The only legitimate way of making contact with a friend found
on the oldoppos websites is for a Full Member to enter a message,
which we will send, on the Member’s behalf. The email
sent will include the sending Full Member’s email address
so that the recipient can respond to the sender directly. This
means by sending a contact message, the sending Member is disclosing
his/her email address. Members may change their email address
at any time through the members menu amend details page. Members’ personal
notes must not include their email address.
3. Log Files

website servers; we use and maintain the information that
we obtain from your browser on our server
logs. This information can include Internet protocol (IP)
addresses, browser type, Internet service provider ("ISP"),

administer the Site, track user movement in the aggregate,
and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

5. Keeping your information secure
We know that your privacy is very important to you and that
you take the security of your information seriously.
We've implemented technology and security policies, rules
and measures to protect the personal information we have
under our control, both on and off-line, from improper access,
use, alteration, destruction and loss.
6. How you can help keep your information secure
As you would expect of us, we will take all reasonable measures
to ensure that the information you provide through our
website is held and managed securely. However, there is
a lot that you can do to help keep your information safe – not
just on our website, but whenever you provide information
Here are some simple ways you can improve the security
of your information:
Use a strong password
Read our advice on choosing a strong password. This will
help you choose a password that will be difficult for
other people to guess but easy for you to remember.
What is a strong password?
A strong password:
- Is kept private and not shared with anyone else
or recorded anywhere.
- Is not guessable by anyone or any program.
- Is easily remembered by you, so there is no need to write
Keep your password private and secure
Your password is a key to your personal information
and online identity. Don't tell anyone your password
If you are concerned that somebody else knows your
password, you can change it on our website by going
to the Members
menu page. We recommend that you change your password
from time to time.
7. Links to other sites
This website includes links to other sites. We make
every effort to provide links of high quality, reputable
but we're not responsible for their privacy practices,
site content or the services they offer.
8. Credit Card information
There has been a lot of publicity about Credit Card
security on the Internet so we decided to use Worldpay
operate a secure server, to process our credit card
encrypt Members’ credit or debit card information
and authorise payment directly. This means that Members’ credit
card details are never revealed to us. Worldpay plc
may transfer to, process and hold your credit card
either within or outside the European Economic Area,
in connection with performing their duties.
9. Place of processing.
The personal information held by us is held on and
processed by computers situated in the United States.
