Privacy Policy

This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their ‘Personally identifiable information’ (PII) is being used on the Countryside Business Association website. PII, as used in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how the CBA (hereafter “we,” “us,” “our,” etc.) collects, uses, protects, and handles your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

Updates to this policy will be noted at the bottom of the page.
