only and includes information such as IP addresses, types of browsers used to access our site, referring/exit pages,
platform type, tracking of movements to analyse trends, and provide broad geographical and demographic information.
The information collected is not linked to any personally identifiable information.
When you register as a member with us we ask for your name, address and contact details so that we can send you
information such as the GOBA magazine, certificates and stickers that are part of your membership entitlement. This is
also the legal basis on which we rely for processing your data. We may also use the information that we collect to notify
you about important changes to the site. You can update your own ‘Membership Profile’ at any time by logging in to the
Members section here. From here you can also request or decline receipt of email notification for various other
information that we think you will find interesting. Updating your details on-line helps us to reduce the manual
administration required by our volunteer committee. If you forget your login details you can retrieve them by entering your
email address to request them to be emailed to you.
GOBA will not share personally identifiable information with third parties except for in the instance of which we need to
send information to a bank following a request for setting up of subscription payment or query.
