OCB Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available in our footer and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.


Log files are maintained and analysed of all requests for files on this website's web servers. Log files do not capture personal information but do capture the user's IP address, which is automatically recognised by our web servers.

Our Commitment to Children's Privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 18, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 18. Content on the site may at times be unsuitable for minors, and if users are identified as being under 18, their accounts are closed.

This website does not store any information that would, on its own, allow us to identify individual users of this service without their permission. Any cookies that may be used by this website are used either solely on a per session basis or to maintain user preferences. Cookies are not shared with any third parties.

Personal Information Caution
Users need to be aware that, should you choose to use an email address that includes your real name, business website address, or any other personal details, these details will be visible and accessable by all users of this site, registered or not. We take no responsibility for the use or collection of this information by any person or persons for any purpose. We can however confirm that we do not transmit or share user information to any third parties for any reason at any time. We will also not entertain any complaint based on information a user or other person makes about the use or posting/collection of information that is freely and publicly available on the internet.

Users, guests or visitors have no right to make any claim with respect of any information provided by users that identify themselves through the information provided in their registration.

OCB members and staff take no responsibility for any content that is posted by users that may offend, defame or harass other people, or be construed as offensive. While all reasonable steps are taken to ensure this does not occur, OCB, it's members, staff or agents take no responsibility for the content posted by others.

Privacy Applications for Joining OCB
All users should be aware that if any person makes an application to join OCB, and that person, at time of application or at anytime thereafter, makes a claim that they have served in a Defence Force of Australia or other allied nation, that OCB members may request evidence to support the claim. Evidence normally requested is in the form of a brief and basic account of your service history, and a photograph of you in a defence environment. No person will be compelled to provide this information and any such information provided is done so voluntarily. Any information provided in this way will be kept strictly confidential. There is NO REQUIREMENT for applicants to have served in the ADF, however IF YOU CLAIM you have, we may ask you to verify your claim because we do not like people who fabricate a service history to impress others, it is illegal, disrespectful and low.

OCB Members will not ask for personal regimental details such as service number, PmKeys number, as this is inappropriate. If an applicant or user/member has already provided such information, that information is kept confidential and will not be shared or used with any third party for any reason at any time. OCB members will never use your personal details, or use any of your information for any purpose. There simply is no reason to do this. Our policy is to not use any information in any way that is a breach of security or in contravention of any statute whether state or federal.

The reason for this provision is that many potential and actual members have made claims of being former or current ADF members, claims that have been clearly false. Such claims of false service are an offence under commonwealth law.
