The DBA is committed to protecting the privacy of members and visitors to the site
The majority of the DBA site can be viewed without the DBA receiving any information about yourself. However, when accessing restricted areas the DBAneeds to receive certain information before that access can be provided. The following policy explains how and why we collect information, and how that information will be used. This policy covers the treatment of both anonymous and personally identifiable information that may be collected when you visit and request services from the DBA website.
Information Collection and Use
Anonymous information is collected on visitors to the website by the log files. This information is for statistical purposes only and includes information such as IP addresses, types of browsers used, referring/exit pages, platform type, tracking of movements to analyze trends, and provides broad geographical and demographic information. The information collected is not linked to any personally identifiable information.
When you use Enquiries and Feedback, we ask for your name, address and contact details so that you can be sent a response to your query or feedback. By using the DBA website, you consent to the collection and use of this information by the DBA. The DBA will not share any personnally identifiable information with third parties.
Access to View, Edit & Delete Personally Identifiable Information
You may request to view, edit or delete any personally identifiable information that the DBA holds. If you wish to have your information deleted then the DBA will remove any personally identifiable tags, but it may be archived for statistical use. Credit card information is never stored.
This website contains links to other sites. The DBA is not responsible for the privacy policies of such sites. This privacy statement applies solely to the collection of information from this site, barges.org.
The website currently uses browser cookies. This may be subject to change in the future. Notification of such a change will be dealt with in accordance to the practice set out in the Changes to Policy section below.
Email will occasionally be sent to members, manually or automatically. You can control receipt of some of this in the following ways:
- Forum postings: Use the Subscribe and Unsubscribe buttons on the Forum topics. Read the Forum Help page for more information
- Classified adverts, change the tick boxes in your profile at Members/My details on the menu, to request or stop alerts.
- The website sends automatic emails only to remind you that your subscription needs renewing and these cannot be stopped while you are a member but you should only get one each year.
- DBA administrators may occasionally send out emails to all or groups of members relating to information that is felt important to the running of the association.
Changes to This Policy
The DBA may amend this policy from time to time. If there is any substantial changes to the way that the personally identifiable information is handled, this will be announced on the website.
