Privacy and SOS.


I have always had the same policy but now because of E.U. regulations I

 have to print it... (in triplicate of course!). Don't you just love the Eurocrats!


The Saving Old Seagulls Privacy Statement

Last Modified:  May 22, 2018

This Privacy Statement explains how SOS collects, uses, and discloses your information.  The Privacy Statement applies to all services and products, except those products that have a separate Privacy Statement.

Where applicable, you consent to the use of your information as described in this Privacy Statement each time you use my website or Forum, so I urge you to read this document in full, and Contact Me  at if you have any questions.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

Personal information is information that can be used to directly or indirectly identify you.  Personal information also includes anonymous information that is linked to information that can be used to directly or indirectly identify you.  Personal information does not include information that has been irreversibly made anonymous or aggregated so that it can no longer enable us, whether in combination with other information or otherwise, to identify you.

Here is a description of the types of personal information we may collect and how we may use it:

What Personal Information I Collect

Depending on whether you are a member of the Forum or not, I do not  collect personal information from or about you, save to send you parts!

Cookies and Similar Technologies

I do not  use cookies and similar technologies.

Disclosure of Personal Information

I do not share personal information, without your prior express consent.  

Legal Compliance and Security

It may be necessary—by law or as a result of legal process, litigation, or requests from public or governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence—for me to disclose personal information.  I may also disclose personal information if I determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.

I may also disclose personal information if I determine, in good faith, that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect my rights and pursue available remedies, investigate fraud, or protect my operations or users.

Your Rights

I take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is accurate, complete, and up-to-date.  However I do not save your addresses or details other than those in mails sent to me. Depending on where you live, you may have the rights described below.

You have the right to access, correct, or delete the personal information that I collect.  You are also entitled to object to or restrict, at any time, the further processing of your personal information.  You have the right to receive your personal information in a structured and standard format.  You may lodge a complaint with the competent data protection authority regarding the processing of your personal information.

To protect the privacy and the security of your personal information, I may request information from you to enable us to confirm your identity and right to access such information, as well as to search for and provide you with the personal information I maintain.  There are instances where applicable laws or regulatory requirements allow or require me to refuse to provide or delete some or all of the personal information that I maintain.

You may contact me to exercise your rights.  We will respond to your request in a reasonable timeframe.

Closing Membership of Forum etc.

Please contact me to remove your details in relation to the following uses of your personal information:

If you remove your details, I have no obligation to retain your information, and I may delete any or all of your information without liability.  I may retain, however, information related to you if I believe it may be necessary to prevent fraud or future abuse, if required by law, or for legitimate purposes, such as  historical information,  or auditing my records or accounts.

Third-Party Websites and Services

My  website, may contain links to or the ability for you to access third-party websites, products, and services.  I am not responsible for the privacy practices employed by those third parties, nor am I  responsible for the information or content their products and services contain.  This Privacy Statement applies solely to information collected by me.  I encourage you to read the privacy policies of any third parties before proceeding to use their websites, products, or services.

Information Security, Integrity, and Retention

It is important that you take precautions to protect against unauthorized access to your SOS account credentials, and computers or other devices.  If you feel that the security of your  personal information has been compromised, please immediately contact me.  Please be aware that, despite my efforts, no security system is impenetrable.  In the event of a security breach, I will promptly notify you and the proper authorities, if required by law.

I will retain your personal information for as long as it is necessary to fulfil the purposes outlined in this Privacy Statement, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.

Information transfer

I will not share your personal information with companies, or service providers. 

Changes to This Privacy Statement

I may periodically change this Privacy Statement to keep pace with new technologies, industry practices, and regulatory requirements, among other reasons.  I expect most such changes to be minor.  Any non-material changes will take effect immediately upon posting of an updated Privacy Statement.  There may, however, be cases where changes to the Privacy Statement may be more significant.  In such cases, I will provide you either a prominent notice of such changes on my SOS web pages,  before they take effect or by directly sending you a notification.

Your continued use of the SOS  website and Forum after the effective date of the Privacy Statement means that you accept the Privacy Statement.  If you do not agree to the Privacy Statement, please refrain from using my website  or Forum and contact me to close  any membership you may have created.
