The Oregon Restaurant & Lodging Association respects and is committed to ensuring your privacy is protected when you use this website. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

Oregon Restaurant & Lodging Association may have need to update this policy; please refer back to this policy on occasion to ensure you are knowledgeable of any changes. This policy is effective from April 2014.

What we collect

We may collect the following information:

  • Name and job title
  • Contact information including email address
  • Demographic information such as postcode, preferences and interests
  • Credit card data for payment
  • Other information relevant to customer surveys and/or offers
What we do with the information we gather

When you register for events or submit an application, you may be asked to provide personal information. Personal data may also be requested when registering for seminars or electronic communications. This information will not be released without authorization from you and we will not disclose personal identification information.

ORLA recognizes your concerns about e-commerce and transactions using bank and credit card information and therefore is committed to keeping personal information secure during commerce transactions by using a secured SSL encryption with all direct transactions that involve using credit card or banking information. This process allows us to send your credit card number and personal data over the Internet securely. Once encrypted, only the credit card's authorization company has the ability to decrypt it and OregonRLA.org never displays your credit card number online.

We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with better service, and in particular for the following:
  • Internal record keeping.
  • To improve our products and services.
  • Send alerts, news or information about new products, special offers or other information using the email address, which you have provided.
  • From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research purposes. We may contact you by email, phone, or mail.
  • We may use the information to customize the website according to your interests.
  • We will never sell your information.
Security
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
