This statement discloses the information practices for this web portal, including what type of information is gathered and tracked, how the information is used, and with whom the information is shared.

This statement and the policies outlined herein are not intended to and do not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.

Collection of Personal Information

To register to use the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce portal, the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce requires that members reveal only essential information to properly manage the subscription to the service.

Use of Personal Information

Unless otherwise requested, collected information will be shared on the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce website's membership directory (available to the general public). Only the minimum amount of information required will be collected from members and used solely for these stated purposes. At no time will members be asked for information that is not needed to fulfill a member request, nor will information be sought without a stated explanation.

Changing and Removing Your Personal Information

The Fredericton Chamber of Commerce will use reasonable efforts to allow users to update or correct previously submitted personal information that the user states to be erroneous. Upon a user's request, the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally delete the user and affiliated personal information from the database. However, it may be impossible to entirely delete a user's entry without some residual information because of backups and records of deletions.

In our commitment to keeping member information confidential, we will not sell, rent, or lease our mailing lists to third parties, and we will not provide members' personal information to any third party individuals or companies without permission unless required to do so. The Fredericton Chamber of Commerce may be obligated to release personal information when it is believed, in good faith, that such a release is reasonably necessary to comply with the law, enforce the terms and conditions in the portal, or protect the rights, property, or safety of the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce, our users, or others.
