We do not collect personal information for visitors browsing our Web site. We may collect personal information for visitors who request membership information, register for an event, post an event to the community calendar, create an account or opt-in to receive our email communications. In these cases, we will collect personal information including but not limited to: your name, email, phone, company name, and address. We may rent or sell the personal information of active Chamber members and its listservs to third parties for the purpose of marketing. We may also share your personal information with our third-party Web site administrators (only for the purpose of serving you) and as required by law.
We collect and share aggregated information about our members and Web site visitors with our partners and advertisers. This information does not identify individuals, and is used to provide our partners and advertisers with information about the volume and activities of visitors to our Web site.
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 credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page.
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.
Newsletters and Listservs
The Chamber distributes several online newsletters and listserv mailings each week via email. Visitors to our Web site can subscribe to our newsletters and listserves. When you opt-in to receive communications from the Chamber, we will collect your personal information (including but not limited to your name and email address) for the purpose of delivering these communications to you. Participation in these communications is voluntary, and you may choose to unsubscribe at any time.
Surveys, Polls, and Contests
On occasion, the Chamber may provide the opportunity to participate in surveys, polls or contests on our Web site. If you participate, we may request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or polls is voluntary, and you, therefore, have a choice whether or not to disclose your personal information.
