to join the Dutton Owners Club
Dutton Owners Club is an international club and we welcome members from any
country in the world. It's nice to know where Duttons have ended up, and hopefully
we can help you keeping them on the road.
Dutton Owners Club is registered under the Data Protection Act and all members'
details provided on the application form will be stored on computer. These records
will be used to produce membership lists for club members if requested. These
details will not be passed on by the club, and must not be passed on to a third
party, or used for marketing purposes. Some of the members details may be printed
in the magazine - usually their name - for example as a caption to a photograph
or article, or with advertisements or requests for information. The club magazine
is sent to all members, car magazines (covering kit and classic cars), and,
once out of date, spare copies may be sold/given away as a back issue.
The club will not give your details to any company for marketing purposes.
details required on the form are for club records and are used to help the committee
or members. The registration and chassis numbers are useful as we are trying
to compile a record of all Duttons produced, and get an idea of how many of
each model and series were built. You do not have to fill in all the information
if you do not wish to, but it is often helpful if you do. For example, if a
member requires help in fitting a particular engine to a particular model, then
they may be sent a list of all members owning similarly engined vehicles. Also,
these lists are used at shows to judge the club's concours events, however,
if we don't have your registration number, you can't win! We are also helping
the police and DVLA/VOSA to stop vehicle identity theft. There have been many
cases recently of vehicles being bought with the sole intention of avoiding
the VOSA test for newly built specialist vehicles, better known as the IVA test.
Normally this involves the transfer of the chassis plate/number plates to a
newly built kit car and the scrapping of one Dutton. This practice is illegal
under british and european law. By giving us the chassis number, model and registration
of the vehicle along with a photo or two we can help protect the integrity of
the marque and actively discourage the practice of vehicle identity theft.
membership details are sorted into county order - to make searching for nearby
members easier - it is important to include this information when filling in
the form. Please also remember to include the STD code when filling in your
telephone number. This information will not be made available to non members.
If you have access to email please include that too. We will be using e-mail
shots to post lists of club events, local group events and items that may be
of interest to Dutton owners.

paid gives the person applying for membership the option of enrolling - without

be sent to each family.
