Bradford Chamber Website Privacy Policy

This page explains how Bradford Chamber uses any information you give to us, and the ways in which we protect your privacy.

The Data Protection Act

Under the Data Protection Act, we have a legal duty to protect any information we collect from you. We use leading technologies and password protection systems to safeguard your data, and keep strict security standards to prevent any unauthorised access to it. We do not pass on your details to any third party or government department unless you give us permission to do so.

What information do we collect?

We collect three kinds of information from visitors to Bradfordchamber.co.uk: registration information, feedback (through emails to the administrator) and site usage information from Google Analytics.

1 Registration information

You do not have to register to use Bradfordchamber.co.uk, but you may need to register to take part in other interactive web media.
The registration information we may collect is: your name, email address, business name, a town of residence (if you wish to give us one) and a contact telephone number. Our technology supplier stores this information securely so that you do not need to re-register when you come back to the site. This information may also be stored on back-up tapes to avoid loss of data. We do not use this information to trace your identity and do not pass it on to any third party or government department.

2 Feedback

We welcome your feedback. You can contact us by emailing info@Bradfordchamber.co.uk

a) Comments and questions

If you send an email or letter to the administrator, asking for information, we may need to contact other departments to find that information. If your question is technical, we may need to pass it to our technology suppliers. We do not pass on any of your personal information when dealing with your enquiry, unless you have given us permission to do so. Once we have replied to you, we keep a record of your message(s) for reference purposes.
We use log files which allow us to record visitors’ use of the site. We analyse log file information from all our visitors, which we use to make changes to the layout of the site and to the information in it, based on the way that visitors move around it.
