Privacy Policy

This site is controlled and operated by The Class 40 Preservation Society (referred to in this Privacy Policy as “The Class 40 Preservation Society”, “we”, “us” “our” “CFPS” OR “”.

This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) explains what personally identifiable information is collected and recorded about you during your visit to this site and what we do with that information. This Policy is incorporated into and forms part of the terms and conditions which apply to your use of the site. Please read this Policy carefully before submitting any information.


The Class 40 Preservation Society collects personal information that you voluntarily provide via the site. Personal information is any information which identifies you including, for example, your name, email address, contact details etc. When using the enquiry form or membership application form we may ask you to provide your name, address, telephone number and email address. For newsletter sign ups we ask for your name and email address. And where applicable when a purchase is made on our site, in addition to the above, we also ask for a delivery address and payment details. This is not an exhaustive list and we may ask for additional information as relevant from time to time.


As you navigate through the site, certain information may be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as:

  • Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and web logs
  • Cookies


An IP address is assigned to your computer each time that you access the Internet. This enables your computer to send and receive data. Generally, every time you connect to the Internet, your IP address changes. However, in some circumstances (i.e. with some broadband connections) your IP address is fixed. A fixed IP address can be associated with your particular computer and may, therefore, amount to your personal information.

Web log information is non-personal information that is collected by the computer that hosts the site each time you visit. Examples of the type of information that can be collected using your IP address and/or web log information include details of the date and time that you visited the site and the type of Internet browser and computer operating system that you used. We, or our authorised agents, use your IP address and/or web log information to collect and report aggregate information on how the site is being used and ways in which the site can be improved.

Where applicable, we may use your personal information:

  • To respond to your questions or requests for additional information.
  • To provide you with information that you have specifically requested or that we have asked if you would like to receive.
  • To process your order and communicate with you about any goods or services you have ordered from us (your details may be passed on to a third party for them to supply or deliver products you have ordered and we may retain your details for a reasonable period of time after you have completed the transaction in order to fulfil any contractual obligations such as refunds, guarantees etc).

  • For internal analysis so that we can better understand how we can improve our site, products and services.


We may use third parties to perform functions on our behalf in relation to the site and the purposes set out in this policy (for example, website hosting). Such third parties may be provided with access to your personal information if needed to perform their specific functions, but may not use such information for any other purpose.

We may pass on non-personal aggregated information about sales and website usage to reputable organisations for research or analysis purposes only. Your personal details will not be disclosed.

We take reasonable steps to protect your personal information as you visit and use the site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration or destruction.
