The European Union GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is here. We have thousands of members in the EU, so we have made some updates to ROTAX-OWNER.COM privacy and data protection policies.

IMPORTANT: As of May 25th, we have removed all existing EU Members from the Rotax-Owner Service Bulletin Mailing list. The GDPR requires us to have you re-confirm your explicit consent to send you emails. On 23-May-2018 we sent all EU members a link to read our updated Privacy Policy, and a special Consent link you can click to allow us to return you  to the Rotax-Owner bulletin mailing list. If you haven't received your Consent link and reactivated on the mailing list, please contact us ASAP! (Note: If you signed up for a membership after 25-May-2018, there is no need to contact us, as our system now records your express consent during the signup process.)

NOTE: Rotax-Owner.com (like most other websites) uses cookies for site functionality. The GDPR requires us to have you provide us your explicit consent to give your web browser cookies. A cookie notice now appears at the bottom of our site pages, allowing you to change your cookie preferences at any time. We do not use site cookies for any advertising / marketing / tracking function! Their only use is to keep you properly logged in across the various sections of our site. Please be aware that disabling Rotax-Owner site cookies will break site functionality. (Please keep them enabled.)


ROTAX-OWNER has updated all of our systems to be GDPR-compliant. We have updated our Privacy Policy to reflect this.

The GDPR provides expanded rights for individuals.

In a nutshell, customers have the right to:

  • Obtain confirmation as to whether or not their personal data is being processed, where and for what purpose (Right to Access)
  • Access their personal data (Right to Access)
  • Correct errors in their personal data (Right to Access)
  • Erase their personal data (Right to be Forgotten)
  • Object to having their personal data processed (Right to be Forgotten)
  • Receive a copy of any personal data stored, and transfer that data to another vendor/controller (Data Portability)

Please refer to our Privacy Policy for more information.

We think that the GDPR is a good thing, and long overdue... the Internet has been something of a "Wild West" free-for-all during the last couple of decades.

ROTAX-OWNER only stores the minimum amount of personal data needed to create and implement your website membership.
