Privacy Policy

BOPP takes the privacy of its members seriously. BOPP collects and uses website user and member information in the following ways:

Contact information provided by members may be used within the general management of the Scheme and individual BOPP memberships. This includes circulation of information related to the BOPP Scheme management, technical support, the Scheme newsletter, BOPP meetings and events (e.g. the BOPP AGM and Technical Seminar, Technical Advisory Committee meetings and workshops) open to members.

The BOPP Scheme is operated by members for members. As such members may be contacted from time to time to canvas their opinion in connection with the management and development of the Scheme.

Limited member information is placed in the public domain via the Membership Directory section of the BOPP website. Inclusion in the Membership Directory is optional. Members may also opt out of receiving email alerts. Members may alter their choice at any time by contacting BOPP at enquiries@bopp.org.uk.

Commercially sensitive information supplied to BOPP during the course of any data collection or canvassing activities will be collected only with the consent of individual BOPP members and will be treated as confidential by the BOPP secretary.

No information collected from the BOPP website is shared with other organisations.

This privacy policy covers the BOPP website. It does not cover external websites to which there are links from the BOPP web site.
