A spurned pilot maliciously signed his former partner up to sadomasochistic dating sites, stalked her and hacked into her bridge club.
Former Royal Navy helicopter instructor Kim Allison met company director Nancy Galloway through online dating last year and the pair saw each other for five months before she ended the relationship.

But the 62-year-old embarked on a campaign of stalking and harassment against her by hacking into every aspect of her life and creating a S&M account in her name despite being given a police warning and a suspended sentence.
During the breakup Allison was able to access her phone and installed tracking software allowing him to monitored all her online activity.
He was jailed in April for breaking an order not to contact her but did so again just four days after being released.
She then began receiving scores of abusive emails from S&M website users.
He used bogus online identities to contact her through the Cruisemates dating website and hacked into an online bridge club, forcing her to stop playing.
At the height of his stalking Ms Galloway was so frightened that she fled her home in Torquay, Devon, and has been forced to delete all her social media accounts to stop him using them to contact her.
Allison posted his own messages on websites which he knew she used and which he knew she would recognise as being references to their time together.
These included messages on Cruisemates which talked about listening to Wagner and drinking green tea.
Allison, of Yeovil, Somerset, admitted three offences of breaching a restraining order and one of harassment and was jailed for 14 months by Judge Robert Linford at Exeter Crown Court.
He told him: “This case doesn’t just pass the custody threshhold, it hurdles it. The aggravating factors are your history of disobeying court orders, breaches being committed shortly after orders were made, and shortly after your release from jail.
“The fact that Miss Galloway was signed up to sexual websites means she cannot ever escape. She is still bombarded with sexually explicit messages.That was a grossly wicked thing to do.”
The pair split up last October and Allison bombarded her with hundreds of phone calls and messages and sexually aggressive emails were sent to her using under false identities.
Police gave him a warning last December and by January he had received a suspended sentence for breaching it.
He carried on stalking her and was jailed for 22 weeks by magistrates in April.
Prosecutor Jo Martin said: “Within four days he started to make contact again. Initially, it was numerous silent phone calls. Letters were sent to her home address using one of many pseudonyms.
“Messages were sent to her via a website whish she used to rent out a caravan and were also sent to the co owner, asking him to apologise to Miss Galloway in his behalf.”
Michael Green, defending, said Allison now accepts the relationship is over and has no intention of contacting Miss Galloway again.
