Terms & Conditions
This service was formerly the radio code recovery service offered by the Mobile Media Specialist Association. The association no longer operates and this current service is run entirely independently by Kevin O'Byrne, the association's former Secretary and webmaster. I will always do my upmost in aiming to meet, and if possible exceed, the expectations of those who purchase my service.
I pride myself on offering a personalised service from beginning to end. Please be aware, however, that the nature of any online service requires that the client be capable of performing certain tasks, such as inputting the code into the radio. I will offer assistance on this if required, but I can't do it for you!
We collect personal information (such as your full name, postal address, e-mail address or phone number) only when you willingly and knowingly provide it, including when you register for our newsletter, contact us via our feedback form, or directly request information or help with decoding a locked radio. We use your personal information to send a newsletter or to act on and respond to your enquiries. We do not send any marketing or promotional messages.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information (information that does not seek to personally identify an individual) automatically when you visit our website. Google Analytics is installed on our site (see below for an explanation of the anonymous data Google collects and how we use it to help improve our website).
Mobile Media Specialist (MMS) will make no attempt to track or identify individual users, except where there is a reasonable suspicion that unauthorised access to systems is being attempted or where our copyright has been infringed. As a condition of use of this site, all users must give permission for MMS to use its server access logs to attempt to track users who are reasonably suspected of gaining, or attempting to gain, unauthorised access, or where a copyright infringement is reported. No access to our raw log files is given to any third party.
Explaining cookies and how we use them
There are two 'flavours' of Cookies - 'Session' cookies and 'Persistent' cookies.
Session cookies are temporary and are deleted when you shut down your Web browser or turn off your computer. These are used to improve how you navigate through a website and, for example, to keep track of your shopping basket contents.
'Persistent' cookies remain on your computer until manually deleted or when they reach an expiry date. They hold information that is useful if you revisit the website, such as login details and customising your personal preferences.
You can disable cookies already stored on your computer, but this may stop our website and others from functioning properly. It may also cause saved login details, for example, to be deleted, so ensure you have a note of them before deleting all cookies.
The following is strictly necessary in the operation of our website. If you choose to allow them, cookies placed on your computer by our website will, where applicable:
- Allow you to login and post to our forum or messaging system, or place an order
- Remember what is in your shopping basket and where you are in the order process
- Recall your login details when you next visit (where applicable)
The following are not strictly necessary but are required to provide you with the best user experience and tell us, anonymously, which pages people find most interesting.
- Functional Cookies. Typically used for Live Chat support (if available) and for tracking the pages you visit. Page tracking data is collated by Google on behalf of millions of website owners, providing anonymous data on which pages you visited, how you got there, the page you exited the website from and so on. It allows us to see which pages are more or less popular and helps us to make our website even better.
- Targeting Cookies. These allow you, for example, to share pages with social networks such as Facebook (where applicable).
Data Sharing Policy
This website will not share any personal information with third parties.
Identifying Cookies on your Computer

You can opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites. Search on 'Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on' for the web browser plug-in.
Where we have embedded a video clip delivered from our YouTube channel, a cookie is set but this does not store personally-identifiable information as the clips are embedded using YouTube's privacy-enhanced mode. This mode restricts cookies set by YouTube. For more details search on 'YouTube's privacy-enhanced mode'.
