In brief: No,only from sex

You can not get chlamydia from toilet seats or any other method than intercourse or oral sex.
Babies can get chlamydia eye infections from coming through the vagina of an infected mother.

In brief: Chlamydia=STD

Chlamydia is a std =sexually transmitted which means you have to get it from someone else --via sexual contact .
You can not get it from a toilet seat or 'wiping wrong' . Chlamydia is the most common std and up to 70% women do not have symptoms! std testing is recommended within 60 days of any new 'partners'. Early treatment is necessary to prevent complications such as p.I.D. (pelvic infection).
