Privacy Policy

This document was last updated 2011-01-07

At CDNUG, we value your privacy. With certain exceptions, you can use our web site without giving us any information about yourself. But sometimes we do need information to provide some of our services, and this privacy policy explains how we collect and use data. Please read the complete CDNUG privacy policy. By using the CDNUG site, you consent to the terms of our privacy policy.


Collecting your Personal Information

We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you or your user group. Generally, this information is requested when you are asked to register your user group.

Personal information collected by CDNUG is generally limited to first and last name, e-mail address, address (if the same as your user group) and country or location, but may include other information volunteered by you for public display on the site in connection with your user group.

Through the routine functioning of our site, we can collect certain technical information, such as IP addresses and browser usage, but we do not associate this information with your personal information. We do not use cookies on our site.

Use of your Personal Information

We use your personal information for several primary purposes:

  • To present contact information your our visitors who may be interested in your user group.
  • To help us create and deliver content most relevant to you.
  • To alert you to special offers, events, updated information and other new services for user groups and members of CDNUG.

To the extent that you voluntarily supply your personal information in connection with registering your user group, that information will be published on our site in a directory and freely available to visitors to our site.

Information collected on CDNUG may also be shared with third parties, including our sponsors, subject to confidentiality obligations. Additionally, we may hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they will be prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

Except as provided above, CDNUG will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on CDNUG or our site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of CDNUG and our site, and, (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of CDNUG or the public.

Control of your Personal Information

CDNUG will not share your information with third parties without your permission other than as described in the preceding section.

Access to your Personal Information

We will provide you with the means to ensure that your personal information is correct and current. You may review, update and/or delete this information at any time when you log in to our site with your user name and password.

Security of your Personal Information

CDNUG carefully protects the security of your personal information and honours your choices for its intended use. We protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction with a combination of technological and procedural methods.

Your information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country, and by using CDNUG, you consent to any such transfer outside of your country.

You also have a significant role in protecting your information. No one can edit your personal information without knowing your user name and password, so do not share these with others.

Use of Cookies and Web Beacons

We do not use cookies (small text files place on a visitor’s computer) or web beacons (also known as clear gif technology, pixel tracking, web bugs, or action tags). We do not allow other companies to place web beacons on our site.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

CDNUG will occasionally update this privacy policy. When we do, we will also revise the "last updated" date at the top of the privacy policy. For material changes to this privacy, CDNUG will notify you by placing prominent notice on our site.
