This website is continually under development and expansion, and it may occasionally be changed without notice. While efforts are made to keep information and notices that appear here timely and accurate, no representations are made that such information or notices are without errors or omissions which may be considered material. This website does not purport to be comprehensive or definitive.

Neither the Port of Vancouver USA, nor its commissioners, staff or representatives shall be liable for damages of any kind arising out of access or inability to access this website or the use of or reliance upon this website or its content, or any links or pointers to information created or maintained by others (access to which should not be considered endorsement of the contents thereof).

Cookies

A “cookie” is a file that may be placed on your hard drive without your knowledge by a website to allow the site to monitor your use. The port does use a cookie that collects anonymous traffic data.

Security

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as contact information), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed-lock icon at the bottom of your Web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the webpage address. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Privacy policy

This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this website. It addresses what personally identifiable information is collected from you through the website, how it is used and with whom it may be shared; the choices available to you regarding the use of your data; the security procedures in place to protect your information; and how you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.

The port endeavors to provide a website that respects visitors’ privacy and does not automatically gather any specific personal information from visitors, unless visitors supply the information by sending us an email or requesting information or materials. All information held or collected is done only for the port’s use in forwarding materials.

Information collection, use and sharing

We are the sole owner of the information collected on this website. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact. We will not share your information with any third party outside our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request (such as provide information or materials). However, if we receive a public disclosure request through the Washington State Public Records Act (RCW 42.56), your email address may be required to be disclosed to the public pursuant to the act.

 Access and control your information

You may opt out of future contacts from us at any time. You can also request to see what data we have about you, if any; change or correct any data we have about you; request we delete any data we have about you; or express concern about our use of your data (the information is not given or shared with any other business or agencies). You may contact us at info@portvanusa.com or 360-693-3611.

The port does use online tools and programs to monitor network traffic. These tools and programs record anonymous information, such as the date and time of the visit and the number of pages visited. No attempt is made to link a website user’s identity with the area of the website they visit.
