Information we collect
Amman Chamber of Commerce collects personal data in the course of its work and activities, including in connection with some client services. We also collect personal data on certain areas of our “sites” when you create a user profile, register for newsletters and alerts, sign up for news, circulars, reports and/or participate in public surveys.
The personal data collected varies and may include information that you provide, such as your name, mailing address, location address, e-mail address, telephone number, and mobile number.
We may also automatically collect information about the devices you use to interact with our “sites”. The information we automatically collect may include IP address, device identifier, web browser, and browsing information collected through cookies, and other similar technologies on our “sites”. We may also automatically collect information about how you use the “sites”, such as what you have searched for and viewed on the “sites”.
The information automatically collected may be associated with a unique identifier as well as with any other personal data you have provided.
Amman Chamber of Commerce may also collect personal data about you from third parties, such as data brokers or aggregators, in the course of its business activities including in connection with some member services.
