Overview

"CERA" will mean Country Estates Recreational Association

The Country Estates Recreational Association was created in 1976,  soon after the Country Estates subdivision was created  in the early 70's.  CERA is managed by a Board of Directors, who live in the Country Estates subdivision, but this association was created with the community in mind. The association offers community memberships to our pool with the goal of teaching all kids how to master their swimming skills and enjoy everything our facility has to offer.

Collection, use and disclosure of personal information

The personal information you provide to secure your membership will be kept private and not shared with any outside parties or third party application in the course of business.

CERA is using a new membership management package from Wild Apricot, which allows each member the ability to share what information they want in managing their pool membership at Country Estates.

The Association may use your child's name when they are signed up for swimming lessons and making that information available to instructors.

Giving consent for others

Members are permitted to share information about the pool association with non-members that may be interested in joining or signing up for swimming lessons for their kids.  Members may share the names of guest by adding their name to Guest Passes while registering visiting guests.

Third-parties applications

The personal information you provide to secure your membership will be kept private and not shared with outside vendors or third party application in the course of daily business. Each member will have the ability to share photos and other information within the Wild Apricot software management application.
