Privacy policy and personal information

A separate privacy policy has been created to cover all areas of data collection and storage. Please read that document to fully understand the precautions taken to safely hold your data. The Great War Group shall use reasonable efforts to protect personal information submitted by members in connection with the Great War Group service and shall use such information in accordance with the privacy policy. Members must acknowledge that submission of any information is at their own risk.

If there are any changes in how we use our members personal information, all members would be notified of this in the appropriate manner. Any changes to our privacy policy will also be posted on our site 30 days prior to these changes taking place. You are therefore advised to re-read this statement on a regular basis.


Neither the Great War Group, any content owners or third parties who use the site will be liable for any indirect, incidental, punitive, special, consequential or exemplary damages or loss of any kind arising from members of the website and its functions including content, materials or products included or made available to members through the website.


It will be expected that members behave in an appropriate manner when corresponding with other members. It is very important to The Great War Group that all are welcome and that nothing should be a barrier to people who wish to join the group to help develop their knowledge of the First World War. As such, the use of inappropriate or discriminatory language in regard to race, gender, disability, belief, or any other protected characteristic will not be tolerated in any manner. The use of such language or any actions suggesting the same, such as the uploading of inappropriate content, would result in the member having their membership terminated. The Great War Group reserve this right at its discretion and without notice if required. In the event of any such termination there would be no refund of any unexpired membership subscription.


Membership to the Great War Group will be paid on either a monthly or annual basis. This means that the Great War Group will require access to members payment information, which will be stored via a secure third party database. Membership will be renewed automatically unless you request cancellation. If you wish to terminate your subscription, please give advance warning of your intent to cancel 14 days prior to payment or publication of next journal issue, whichever is first.

Please note that only Adult Individual and Family subscriptions have a monthly payment option. Junior/Student and Group memberships can only be done on an annual basis. Members are free to end their membership to the Great War Group at any time however, there will be no refund given if an annual member chooses to leave before the end of their membership period.

The Great War Group is a charity and operates on the kindness and goodwill of its members in order to remain funded to provide services. If it is believed that a member is utilising their membership at the detriment of the group’s finances and operations, the trustees reserve the right to withdraw membership. As the majority of memberships will most likely be annual, monthly members who choose to end their membership will be unable to re-join until the following year, so as not to be a detriment to the operational running of the group. This grace period will depend on when during the year that the member has terminated their membership.
