Privacy Policy

This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce.

Information Collection and Use

The Carroll County Chamber of Commerce is the sole owner of the information collected on this site.  We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.  Our organization collects information from our users at several different points on our website.

Cookies
The Carroll County Chamber of Commerce utilizes “cookies” strictly to track the user for the duration of their visit to our website for the sole purpose for Chamber analytical use only.  Users have the option of disabling or not accepting cookies by changing the preferences on their browsers.* If users opt to disable cookies, they will still be able to use our website.  However, they will not be able to use some functionality or post to the message boards.  No personally identifiable information (e-mail address, name, etc) is collected with the cookies we set.  Accepting cookies while on the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce site will not put the user at risk for marketing to other sites and it is not used for any subsequent tracking once the user leaves the site.

Web Statistics
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement, and gather broad demographics information for aggregate use for reporting and sponsorship purposes.  IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.  Advertisers who request the amount of clicks/hits or other website statistics will be given this information for them to evaluate their return on investment on website advertising.  Any information collected about visitors to this site is maintained for the benefit of improving our website and enhancing our communication with visitors
and Chamber members.

Links
This website contains links to other sites.  Please be aware that the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce does not claim any responsibility for the privacy practices of such other sites.  We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.  This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the website.

Database
The Carroll County Chamber of Commerce maintains an up-to-date Chamber membership database.  Accessible and maintained by staff, the information collected in this database is for Chamber use only.  Membership in the Carroll Chamber is an implied effort by the member to be known within the membership and the community as a member in good standing who wishes to be contacted for services and/or products. 

In an effort to prevent email harvesting, the Chamber staff will make every effort to “blind copy” addresses of e-mails originating from the Chamber.  If you do not want to receive emails from us in the future, please let us know by sending an email to our Information Specialist (carrollchamber@carroll-ga.org). 

 

Security
This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information, and we have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.

 

Surveys
Occasionally, our site requests information from users from web surveys.  Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has choice whether or not to disclose this information.  Survey results will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site as well as to improve the services we offer to our members.

This privacy policy was adopted and will be periodically reviewed by the Board of Directors of the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce.
