The Ordnance Society

Ordnance & Artillery of All Periods



The Ordnance Society has always had a responsible attitude to the data it holds about individual members. Data is only held to enable the management of the Society in terms of its finances, the distribution of publications and information to members, and to enable members to contact other members with similar interests.

The Ordnance Society has never, and will never, share or sell members’ details to third party companies for any purposes.

The amount of data is very small and held in FOUR files: –

  1. Name and address list used for printing address labels for the Newsletters and Journals.
  2. E-mail lists of members used for informing people that the latest Newsletter is on the Ordnance Society web-site, available for an electronic download, with a password.
  3. Spreadsheet Register of “Members’ Interests”, held on the Ordnance Society web-site and is password protected; the password being available to individual members on request. Its purpose is to offer to Ordnance Society members the opportunity to list their interests and contact details, so that other members on the register with similar interests can make contact, and vice versa.
  4. Master Ordnance Society Membership List. This spreadsheet is used internally by the Ordnance Society Membership Secretary to record and update the data held on individual members. The data is listed below: –

OS Membership Number; Electronic Newsletter Y/N; Surname; First Name; Title; Organization Name; Address; e-mail address; Tel No(s); Date of Last Payment or Life Member; Payment Method; Interests.

The Ordnance Society will provide a copy of any individual’s data held in any of these files at their request; and make updates or corrections as requested.
