Privacy Policy

Purpose

The Greater Medina Chamber of Commerce is committed to protecting your online privacy while providing you with the most useful and enjoyable Web experience possible. While you can use many features of the Greater Medina Chamber of Commerce web site anonymously, you are required to provide personal information to gain access to some of our content and member services.
 
How we collect and use personal information
Registering on The Greater Medina Chamber of Commerce web site gives you access to all the site’s information and features. With your approval, we occasionally will send e-mail messages to notify you about important changes to the site, new services, special events and meetings. If you would rather not receive these e-mail notifications, you can simply indicate that preference either when you register or at any time you modify your account. When you enter your information, we will save it in your member profile so that you won’t have to enter it again. We occasionally may also send you postal mail to notify you of important changes to the site, new services, or special events or meetings. If you would rather not receive such information via postal mail, you can call the Greater Medina Chamber of Commerce and request to be removed.
 
How we protect your personal information
All personal data you enter on the Greater Medina Chamber of Commerce web site is encrypted with secure server software (SSL) that encodes the information before your Web browser software sends it to us. The SSL software decodes the data only after it reaches our server, meaning hackers can’t snatch any of your personal information while it is in transit. Once the data reaches our site, the same state-of-the-art security software we use to guard all of our company’s essential business data protects your personal data as well.
In addition to using the most secure technology available, we work tirelessly to make sure that we use any information you provide us only in ways you have approved. We send you only the e-mail you have approved in your account information or on your e-mail subscription sign-up page.

How we use "cookies"
As you probably know, "cookies" are small pieces of information that some Web sites store on your computer's hard drive when you visit them. Like many other Web sites, The Greater Medina Chamber of Commerce uses cookies to identify members so they don’t have to enter a user ID and password upon each visit. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies but allow you to modify security settings so you can approve or reject cookies on a case-by-case basis. Even if you do not use cookies, you can still access all of the features on our site by logging in manually with each visit.
 
What we provide to third parties
While the Greater Medina Chamber of Commerce does not provide any third-party access to your personal information except to facilitate your own attempts to register with our partners or receive offers from select members as mentioned elsewhere in this policy, we may provide third parties with aggregate statistics about our members, traffic patterns, and related site information. This data reflects site usage patterns gathered during visits to our Web site, but it does not contain behavioral or identifying information about any individual member unless that member has given us permission to share that information.
 
The Greater Medina Chamber of Commerce may use a third-party advertising company to serve ads when you visit our sites. This company may use information (not including your name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number) about your visits to our and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. In addition, we share Web site usage information about visitors to our site with this company for the purpose of managing and targeting advertisements on our sites. For this purpose, we and our third-party advertising company note some of the pages you visit on our sites through the use of pixel tags (also called “clear gifs”).

Obtaining your consent
By using our Web site, you give The Greater Medina Chamber of Commerce permission to collect information about the pages served to you as an anonymous user for the purpose of calculating aggregate site statistics. If you register at The Greater Medina Chamber of Commerce, you authorize the Greater Medina Chamber of Commerce to use information you provide to personalize the information we deliver to you and to use your demographic information when calculating aggregate customer data. As a registered user, you give the Greater Medina Chamber of Commerce and our agents permission to send you e-mails related to the Greater Medina Chamber of Commerce, it’s members and affiliates.

If you are under the age of 18, you must not provide your name, e-mail address, or any other identifying information without the consent of your parent or guardian, or as otherwise provided for by applicable law.

Any changes to our privacy policy will be posted on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.
