Privacy Policy

The purpose of this privacy statement is to provide Sharjah.gov.ae users with information about the data we will gather as they use the site.

In accordance with this policy, our services are designed to give you the information that you want to receive. Sharjah Chamber will act in accordance with current legislation and aims to meet current Internet best practice.

Information on Visitors

During the course of any visit to Sharjah Chamber, our server downloads the pages which you see along with something called a Cookie to your computer (see paragraph 3 below for more on this). Most, if not all, web sites do this, and that is because Cookies allow the web site publisher to do useful things like find out that the computer (and probably its user) has visited the site before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking to see, and finding, the Cookie left there on the last visit.

Any information that is supplied by Cookies can help us to provide you with a more tailored service and assists us to analyse the profile of our visitors. For example: if on a previous visit you went to, then the server might find this out from your Cookie and prioritise information on a second visit to the site.

What is a Cookie?

When you enter the site your computer will automatically be issued with a Cookie. Cookies are small text files which identify your computer to our server. Cookies in themselves do not identify the individual person, just the computer used. Many sites do this whenever a user visits their site, in order to track traffic flows.

Cookies themselves only record which areas of the site have been visited by the computer in question, and for how long. Users have the opportunity to set their computer to accept all Cookies, to notify when a Cookie is set, or not to receive cookies at any time, although this of course means that personalised services cannot then be provided to that user and your experience of ChamberOnline may not be as good.

Even assuming you have not set your computer to reject cookies, you can browse our site without giving us any personal data.

Submitting Personal Information

When you supply any personal information to Sharjah Chamber we then have legal obligations towards you in the way we deal with that data. We have to collect the information fairly and, if you wish, let you know what information Sharjah Chamber hold about you, what that information is used for, and whether we will pass the information on to anyone else.

If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please e-mail us as soon as possible to the above address. Any incorrect information will be corrected promptly.

Security

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
