Whitewater CDA Confidentiality Promise

Our Commitment to Confidentiality

Whitewater CDA wants to be your trusted adviser. Whether you’re an existing business, or a business looking to relocate or expand into our city, we know that confidentiality is key in economic development projects.

When we work with a business on a project, we are often privy to a lot of sensitive information, including financial information, strategic growth plans, and R&D activity. During a BRE visit, for example, we might learn that an employer needs working capital, is looking to expand their footprint by obtaining additional space, or is considering transferring some production and employees to a different location. Until plans are complete, an employer would want to keep this out of the public eye.

We take confidentiality very seriously. When we work with an employer on a new project, that project is given an anonymous name that is used on all correspondence and project-related materials. We do not share information on our website, publicly or in any format during the project. Once the project is complete and considered a “win,” we will work with the employer to promote it, but only with the express consent and participation of the employer. There are no exceptions to this practice.

If you have questions about our Confidentiality Promise, please contact the Whitewater CDA, Executive Director Cathy Anderson at 262-473-0148.
