Privacy policy

By using the BCC website, you are accepting the practices described in this privacy policy.

The BCC collects two types of information from users of this website: personal data (including names and e-mail addresses); and statistical data (e.g. how many users use the site, and which pages they view).

Personal Data

This is only captured when you provide it, such as when you apply to become a member, create an account, make a reservation for an event, or subscribe to our e-newsletter. Once you have created an account, which is necessary to make a reservation for events, your data will be prefilled the next time you make a reservation. We will send you communications about the chamber including e-newsletters containing invitations to our events, other information about the chamber and selected information provided by third parties which we feel you will be interested in.  These e-newsletters are sent to all members and people who make reservations for our events as well as subscribers to our newsletters about every two weeks. You may unsubscribe from these emails at any time. Members’ names, countries, website addresses and activity sectors are listed in the Member Directory and their contact details are listed in a private section of the Member Directory available only to other members. Except as provided in this privacy policy, we will not make your data available to third parties without your express consent. If you provide us with information about another person, you confirm that they have appointed you to act for them, to consent to the processing of their personal data and that you have informed them of our identity and the purposes as set out in this privacy policy for which their data will be processed.

Statistical Data

We may log your IP address as you browse the site. This is purely for website statistics, recording the users to the site and which pages they visit. This information does not tell us who you are, and we only use this to monitor the effectiveness of the site.

Data Protection

We follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of personal information so as to prevent unauthorised access by third parties. We will store all the personal information you provide on our secure (password and firewall protected) servers.

Changing your data

You are entitled to ask for a copy of the information we hold about you and to have any inaccuracies in your information corrected. If your details change, you can make changes to your data by editing your account details via the website or informing us direct.

Contacting us

If you have any questions about this privacy policy or wish to change your data, please contact us.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may update this privacy policy from time-to-time by posting a new version on our website.  You should check this page occasionally to ensure you are happy with any changes.
