Privacy Policy

Westerly Owners' Association, its Area Groups, and JayT, the Association's administration office, (jointly and severally described hereafter as "WOA") are concerned about the privacy of your personal data. This is not just because of the legislation but because we are consumers too, and we reckon we should do unto others as we would have them do unto us. However, WOA is an Association that rejoices in putting members in touch with members. We do this in the sincere belief that our joint activities, and the friendships so formed, will greatly enhance the pleasure of owning a Westerly.

If you do not agree with this spirit and to this policy, we ask you to surf elsewhere. Therefore, by using this site, you agree to the following:

Our Use of Personal Data
If you join or interact with WOA through this site or regular mail, or even at the various shows we attend, WOA will collect appropriate data from you and use it in the following ways:
  • If you become a member, WOA will record data about you and your boat. We will then transfer this information to the WOA administration office for the sole purpose of processing, organising or arranging your membership and its benefits. You should note that this includes the printing of selected boat and owner information in our annual Yearbook, which is circulated to all our members and close supporters. Also, in providing membership benefits, WOA will send you, by post or by email, information about news, events and, from time to time, special offers. In doing these things, WOA might send your contact details to countries and territories outside the European Union, as we have members all over the world.
  • If you buy our publications or, as a member, buy WOA Regalia, we will collect data about you and will transfer it to the WOA Regalia Secretary for the sole purpose of processing your order and its delivery.
  • If you use this website, our Webmaster will collect data from your visit to understand better what visitors want from the site. Any analysis will then be used to enhance your experience of the site and the Association.
  • In following links on our site to third-parties, for example our merchandise supplier, you will be leaving our website and will be leaving the scope of this Privacy Policy. We recommend that you read and accept the Policies and Terms on those sites, because they will apply.
Other than the above, WOA will NOT share your information outside the Association for any other marketing purpose.

Protection of Your Personal Data
When you join the Association through this website, or when you place an order for our publications or regalia or when you access your account details, we will use a secure server. Any data you give us will be automatically encrypted using a 'Secure Socket Layer' session. SSL is an industry standard and is one of the best ways we ensure your Internet messages are not intercepted. You should be aware, however, that older browsers do not use SSL. For protection, you will need Netscape version 4.05 or Microsoft Internet Explorer browsers, version 4 or above.
WOA will follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of personal information that is given to us, in order to prevent any unauthorised access to it or use of it. Our security procedures mean that we may sometimes request proof of your identity from you.

WOA uses Cookies on this site to enable features such as the temporary storage of items in your shopping basket and to validate your details for security purposes.

Please be aware that Cookies can be turned off in your browser or you can be notified when your software receive a Cookie, so you can choose whether to accept it or refuse it. However, by refusing Cookies you will not be able to benefit from some of the features on this site.

Access to Your Information
You have the right as an individual to find out what information we hold about you and make corrections, if necessary. WOA will make all practical efforts to respect your wishes. Even better, WOA would encourage you to keep in touch with us, to ensure your membership record is kept up to date.
To obtain details of the personal information we hold on you, please email us at

Changes to the Policy
WOA may have to update this Privacy Policy, from time to time. Any changes to it will be posted on this page of the website.

Opting Out
Of course, one reason for owning a boat is that you want to get away from the "madding crowd". We can understand and respect that. You have the right to ask us to not use your information and you can do this, or opt out of the Yearbook inclusion or any email updates, by sending an email to, requesting that you be removed from our mailing list.

If you have any comments, suggestions or concerns about this Privacy Policy, please send an email to WOA Administration Office.

We hope you enjoy the site!
