Please find below details regarding the information which is collected when your visit this website.

Who we are

This website is owned by the Lovedale Chamber of Commerce.

Our website address is: https://www.lovedalehuntervalley.com.au.

If you have any questions about our Privacy Policy, you can contact us at info@lovedalehuntervalley.com.au and include ‘Privacy Policy’ in the subject line.

On working toward the site guidelines outlined below, we have taken into account the new rules from the GDPR. The General Data Protection Regulation is a rule passed by the European Union in 2016, setting new rules for how companies manage and share personal data. In theory, the GDPR only applies to EU citizens’ data, but the global nature of the internet means that nearly every online service is affected.
