The Sussex and District Chamber seeks consent for all personal information we collect, use and disclose through information provided to individuals prior to collection, or at the time of collection. For information which is considered to be more sensitive, for example credit card numbers, the Sussex and District Chamber will ask for a signature as a sign of consent.
If information is voluntarily provided, this constitutes consent to the collection, use and disclosure of personally identifiable information only for a purpose that would be considered obvious to a reasonable person. In the majority of cases, the Sussex and District Chamber will seek consent to collection, use and disclosure. The Sussex and District Chamber will not use personal information for any purpose other than that for which consent has been provided. Should the Atlantic Chamber require use of personal information for a new purpose, consent will be sought for that new use.
Limits for Collecting, Using, Disclosing and Keeping Personal Information
The Sussex and District Chamber does not collect, use or disclose personal information of individuals except when individuals give consent, provide the information on a voluntary basis, or as required or authorized by law. There may be occasions where more specific personal information is necessary for us to proceed with a request for information, or provide you with a product or service. In such cases, we will provide you with a description on the information we need. In all cases, the Sussex and District Chamber limits the amount and type of information collected to only the personal information that is required to provide the individual with the requested information, product, or service. We collect only information that is voluntarily provided by you and undertake that such information will be kept strictly confidential.
The Sussex and District Chamber may disclose personal information collected by it without the knowledge or consent of the individual, in certain circumstances prescribed by the Act, for example to its lawyers; for purposes relating to an investigation or proceeding, or where required by law to disclose the information. The Sussex and District Chamber will not use or disclose personal information without the consent of the individual except as authorized by applicable law.
We retain personal information only as long as is necessary to provide the individual with the requested product, service or information and delete or destroy this information after that time. In some cases, however, legal reporting and retention requirements necessitate that the Sussex and District Chamber retain information for a specific amount of time. If the Sussex and District Chamber uses an individual’s personal information to make a decision that directly affects the individual, the Sussex and District Chamber will retain that information for at least one year after using it.
Any personal information that the Sussex and District Chamber retains is kept in such a manner as to ensure its
