We will NOT sell, rent, trade or barter your information with any other organization.
Your privacy is very important to us. When you submit your information to DeckLog, you have
our assurance that your name will not be given to others by us, and will only be displayed
on DeckLog in the manner in which you agree to. We have also taken measures to lessen the
risk that a non-veteran can obtain your information for mass marketing purposes (see
However, we can not guarantee that your information will not be
viewed or obtained by someone you would rather didn't. The purpose of DeckLog is to get
Naval Veterans in touch with each other - and to accomplish this, it does require making
your information accessible to others. When you submit your information to DeckLog, you
agree to have your information available in a searchable format that is viewable to other
Naval Veterans, and perhaps others. After all, you wouldn't be visiting DeckLog if you
weren't interested in finding old friends and shipmates. But do be aware, DeckLog is open
to veterans and non-veterans alike - which means others who you may not be on the best
terms with (such as that shipmate you lost money to in a poker game that you never paid up
on or an ex-spouse) may have access to your information.
When you fill out your veteran profile (under the option of
"My Profile" on the Home Port), you have the option to hide
certain information about yourself (such as address and phone
number). If you are concerned about your privacy, we highly
recommend you enable these features.
We have also taken the following measures to lessen the risk of
your information falling into the hands of marketing companies:
Member's phone numbers, addresses, etc. are never displayed on any
list. We simply print a "Y" or "N" to tell you if we have that
information on file. In order to view a member's full information, you must individually
go into each members record to retrieve the information. If we or that person has locked their
information, then it will not be displayed. This makes it a very labor
intensive task for marketing companies to obtain any usable data for their purposes.
Generally, our information has come from others who also served on the same
ship as you did or from an association that you may have once belonged to. Many who visit
our site, want to tell us about others they know about. We suspect they either know you or
else found your name in an association's roster or on an on-line source (maybe a website
for your ship or for veterans in general). We let others add records for their friends or family
members. On the bottom of your profile, you can see who
added your record. Of course, we respect
your privacy and will at your request, immediately remove your name from our website. You
can also decide to restrict access to your information when you fill out your profile.
And, we promise to never sell, rent or give our list to any other 3rd party.
NOTE: Once you are a member of
DeckLog, no one but you can ever alter your record again. Similarly, if you add a
record for a friend ... and later on, if that person logs on to DeckLog and signs up as a
member (which is FREE), you will no longer be able to alter their record either.
