This policy covers all websites owned and operated by the Canadian Engineering Education Association (CEEA/ACEG)
Collection of Information
Your privacy is very important to us. We collect personal information, such as names, addresses, postal codes, email addresses, etc. when an account with CEEA has been created. Your information is used in sending confirmation of online membership payments and registrations for events, as well as notifying you of CEEA specific information, upcoming events and other interesting engineering educational information. If you prefer not to receive these event and information updates, you will have the opportunity to opt out on the webpage you are visiting.
We want you to feel completely secure when making purchases on our website. In order to protect your personal information and protect against unauthorized access, all online transactions are done through a secure site and processed in compliance with today’s industry standards for data security. We undergo stringent security certification and process all transactions via a leading payment gateway provider.
All transactions made through our website are considered final and non-refundable, unless unauthorized use of your credit card can be proven. If you become aware that your credit card has been lost, stolen or is being used fraudulently, it is your responsibility to report the issue to your financial institution. CEEA sends receipts by email upon completion of all transactions within 24 hours. An exception to this rule is in cases where the policy for a certain transaction may allow for refunds or transfers i.e. conferences and events.
A member account is created for each member and provides access to all your account information, as well as a member’s only section for all active members. It is there only for your convenience. It is not possible to complete a transaction without a log in account. If you do not have one then the system will direct you on how to create an account during the transaction process.
No contact information entered on our website is ever sold or leased to third parties. We respect your privacy and therefore do not share your personal information with other institutions; however we do reserve the right to share your personal information if and when it is deemed necessary in order to comply with any particular government law or request, detect, prevent, or respond to fraud, security, or technical issues, or protect against imminent harm to the rights, property, or safety of CEEA / ACEG and/or it entities, its users, or the public at large as required and permitted by law.
