Privacy Policy and Data Protection

We respect your rights

UKOUG respects your right to privacy, as a visitor to, you prefer to control your own personal information and preferences. For this reason, we may ask you to register or to provide personal information and preferences when you visit certain areas of, download content, request information, or subscribe to the UKOUG ebulletin.

We will guard the personal information you share with us to ensure the content and services are always tailored to your current, designated preferences.

When you provide UKOUG with your name (or alias), email address, mailing address, or telephone number, and you "opt in," UKOUG representatives may use the provided information to alert you to product upgrades, special offers, updated information, new services, and other UKOUG information. UKOUG does not offer, or allow the selling of, any user-provided information to third parties.

UKOUG respects the rights users give us when opting to receive email communications and enforces internal policies to preserve those rights. It is our objective to retain the long-term ability to continue to communicate with our users.

If you do not want UKOUG or UKOUG representatives to contact you, you may "opt out" of this preference at any time, whether you are online or contacting UKOUG directly. As part of your preference flexibility, you will always have the option to opt back in and have UKOUG contact you based on your previous or new preferences.

If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still visit most of the UKOUG website.

How UKOUG will protect your personal information:

UKOUG will always protect the personal information that you share with us. UKOUG stores information internally in a controlled, secure environment. If, for example, you make a purchase online, we route all transactions through SSL (Secure Socket Layers) and will process your credit card number only to secure your current payment. The SSL transaction does not retain your credit card number subsequent to the transaction at hand and will not use the number for marketing purposes.

If UKOUG requests general demographic information, this information is limited to reporting purposes only; members remain anonymous. Phone numbers, email addresses, and postal addresses are never shared for demographic reports with outside entities.

Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our website.

UKOUG will endeavour to ensure that it receives 'opt-in' from all intended email recipients of email marketing, in line with the government legislation that came into place in October 2003. As such UKOUG will try to ensure that all future communications sent with the intention of obtaining email addresses for the purpose of email marketing, do so with the individuals consent. It recognises the need to ensure new and existing email details are obtained lawfully, for a specified and relevant purpose and are kept up to date and confidential.
