At the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce, your privacy and information are of utmost importance. The Chamber staff is committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our members and visitors to our websites. We take privacy concerns seriously. The following policy is designed to explain the way information is collected and used so that everyone will feel secure in visiting and utilizing our site and being included in the Chamber database.
Website Statistics: The Chamber reviews the number of “hits,” “unique visitors,” “page views” and “advertisement” clicks for statistical information purposes only. We make no attempt to link hits with the individuals who actually browse the sites. 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. No personal information is available regarding those who have visited the sites.
Visitors Access: You can access our web pages—www.clevelandchamber.com, www.visitclevelandtn.com or www.clevelandbradleyedc.com—and browse our sites without disclosing personal information. Our website does not enable visitors to communicate with other visitors or to post information to be accessed by others.
Personal Information: This policy applies to all information collected or submitted on this website. We do not collect personal identifying information on visitors to our website except • To the extent that your web browser provides information to our web server (for example, your IP address or the site you link from) • To the extent that you provide information to us in an email message or other Chamber correspondence. We do not collect information about our visitors from other sources such as private records, other websites or other means of “email ranking.”
The Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce utilizes “cookies” strictly to track the user for the duration of their visit to our website for the sole purpose as mentioned above—for Chamber analytical use only. No personally identifiable information is stored in the cookie, and it is not used for any subsequent tracking once the user leaves the site.
Database: The Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce maintains an up-to-date Chamber membership database on a secure server. The information collected in this database is for Chamber use only.
Membership in the Chamber of Commerce 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. This being said, on the Chamber’s websites, members’ contact names, addresses, websites and a hot link to their email address (email address not visible) are available online in the accessible membership directory. For printed publications such as the annual Chamber membership directory, member businesses are listed with websites when available. The Chamber does provide the printed membership directory to members free of charge and to nonmembers for a fee. Emails We only use return email addresses to answer the email requests we receive. Inquiries for visitor information are added to a mailing list for promotional emails, and recipients may opt out of these emails upon request. Only physical addresses provided by visitors requesting relocation or visitor information may be shared with subscribing Chamber-member businesses for the purposes of marketing their products/services. Only Chamber members who provide their email addresses for use in the Chamber online database, contact for business or service solicitation from public, or other implied consent for use will be contacted via email.
Links: The Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce links to other member sites or official sites for business-related matters. The Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.
Event Registration or Online Membership Renewal or New Application: If you choose to register for events or join/renew your membership by using your credit card on our website, you will be required to give personal contact information as well as credit card information. Credit card information is not stored on any Chamber computer or server. In addition to providing the above mentioned information, if you choose to correspond further through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address as proof of registration.
