Who are we?

The Vauxhall Viva Owners Club, here to promote, maintain and continue the survival of the Vauxhall Viva, old or new, standard or custom, mint or poor, all are welcome.

The Vauxhall Viva Owners Club (hereafter referred to as VVOC) is a privacy conscious organisation and is strongly committed to its members right to privacy. That is why we have drafted a Privacy and Data Protection Statement.

How does the Data Protection Act affect the records kept by the VVOC?
The Data Protection Act states that those who record and process personal information must be open about how the information is used and must follow the eight principles of ‘good information handling’. These principles state that data must be:

Fairly and lawfully processed.

Processed for limited purposes.

Adequate, relevant and not excessive.


Not kept for longer than is necessary.

Processed in line with your rights.


Not transferred to countries without adequate protection.

By law, organizations, including the VVOC, have to keep to these principles. If you believe in any way that the VVOC is not processing your personal data in accordance with these principles, please contact the VVOC’s membership secretary.

How does the VVOC collect data?
The VVOC collects personal data through membership application forms, membership enquiries via telephone or email or acceptance for inclusion on mailing lists or forums.
All personally identifiable information provided to the VVOC is processed in accordance with the principles of the Data Protection Act 1998.

Is information passed to third parties?
It is the VVOC policy to only disclose information to third parties if explicitly required to do so by United Kingdom Law. The VVOC will obtain your consent before passing on any information to any third parties. The VVOC does not collect or compile personally identifying information for dissemination or sale to external parties for marketing purposes or host mailings on behalf of third parties.

Who is allowed to see my information?
All records held by the VVOC will only be made visible to active VVOC committee members with a need for that information.
