We are using cookies to enhance your experience. By using this site you are agreeing to this.
Cookies are small text files that webservers give to browsers to store on users machines. They are necessary as they enable the website to recognize requests as coming from the same browser and they can be essential for the operation of an application but they can also be used to track user behaviour.
It will notify you of the following:
* What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the website, how it is used and with whom it may be shared.

* Information collection, use, and sharing
Rob Fielding is the sole owner of the information collected on this site, which is intended for recreational purposes only. We only have access to or collect information that you voluntarily give us via use of the site, email or other direct contact from you.
Additionally, IP addresses will be logged and records kept. This is primarily to prevent users logging on in multiple identities. We will not sell or rent the personal information collected on the forum to anyone. The site administrators and moderators will have access to your personal information so that they may administer and moderate the message board.
Personal information you offer voluntarily via the use of the site may be published on the website and thus be available for public consumption. The information likely to be used for public consumption is your username and any details you make public in your profile and of course the material that you post. The owners, administrators and moderators do not and cannot accept responsibility for the accuracy of any material posted on the message board.
The liability for any statements, opinions and claims expressed on the OVF forum must lie with the author of the post. This applies to all members including owners, administrators and moderators when posting as private individuals. By logging in to the OVF site you acknowledge and agree to this disclaimer.
We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
If all of the assets that OVF uses to operate the message board (or substantially all of them) are acquired by a third party, we may transfer personal data we then hold to that party.
In order to use certain features of this website, a user must first complete the registration form. During registration a user is required to give certain information (such as their email address). This information is used to contact you by site staff.
We use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.
Disclosure for legal reasons
You acknowledge and agree that OVF may disclose personal information we store about you if required to do so by law or in the good faith believe that such preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with legal process; (b) enforce these terms of service; (c) respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third-parties; or (d) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of the OVF website, our members and the public.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
Cookies are small text files stored on your computer by your browser. They’re used for many things, such as remembering whether you’ve visited the site before, so that you remain logged in – or to help us work out how many new website visitors we get each month. They contain information about the use of your computer but don’t include personal information about you (they don’t store your name, for instance).
This policy explains how cookies are used on the OVF website in general – and, below, how you can control the cookies that may be used on this site (not all of them are used on every site).
We may collect information automatically when you visit the Website, using cookies.
The cookies allow us to identify your computer and find out details about your last visit.
You can choose, below, not to allow cookies. If you do, we can’t guarantee that your experience with the Website will be as good as if you do allow cookies.
The information collected by cookies does not personally identify you; it includes general information about your computer settings, your connection to the Internet e.g. operating system and platform, IP address, your browsing patterns and timings of browsing on the Website and your location.
Most internet browsers accept cookies automatically, but you can change the settings of your browser to erase cookies or prevent automatic acceptance if you prefer.
Types of cookie that may be used during your visit to this website:
1. Personalisation cookies
These cookies are used to recognise repeat visitors to the Website and in conjunction with other information we hold to attempt to record specific browsing information (that is, about the way you arrive at the Website, pages you view, options you select, information you enter and the path you take through the Website).
2. Analytics cookies
These monitor how visitors move around the Website and how they reached it. This is used so that we can see total (not individual) figures on which types of content users enjoy most, for instance.
3. Third-party service cookies
Social sharing, video and other services we offer are run by other companies. These companies may drop cookies on your computer when you use them on our site or if you are already logged in to them.
4. Advertising cookies
We sell space on some of our websites to advertisers – they pay for the content you enjoy for free.
As part of this, we use several services to help us and advertisers understand what adverts you might be interested in. These cookies hold information about the computer – they don’t hold personal information about you (ie it’s not linked to you as an individual). But they might hold a record of what other websites you’ve looked at – so we could show you a car advert if you’ve previously visited a motoring website.
Advertisements on the Website are provided by other organisations. Our advertising partners will serve advertisements that they believe are most likely to be of interest to you, based on information about your visit to the Website and other websites. In order to do this, our advertising partner may need to place a cookie on your computer. These cookies hold information about the computer – they don’t hold personal information about you (ie it’s not linked to you as an individual).
These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice or to opt-out of this type of advertising, you can visit:
Please note that turning off advertising cookies won’t mean that you are not served any advertising merely that it will not be tailored to your interests.
