Privacy Statement

Data Collection, Management and Privacy Policy

The Greater Dalton Chamber of Commerce staff is committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our members and visitors to our website. Privacy and information are of utmost importance and 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/hot deals/job postings” clicks for statistical information purposes only. We make no attempt to link hits with the individuals who actually browse the sites.

Visitors Access

The Chamber website can be accessed at www.daltonchamber.org without disclosing personal information. Our website does not enable visitors to communicate with other visitors or to post information to be accessed by others.

Database

The Greater Dalton 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 website, 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. The Chamber does provide, upon request, printed mailing labels to members and non-members for a fee.

Email Protection and Privacy Policy

The Greater Dalton Chamber of Commerce has created this email privacy policy to demonstrate our firm commitment to our members’ privacy and the protection of their electronic information.  Email addresses are not sold or given to any other parties. 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.

If you have received an email from the Chamber, it will be from last name@daltonchamber.org.  Your email address is either listed with us as a contact who has expressly shared this email address for the purpose of receiving information in the future
OR

You have an existing membership with us, in which you provided the Greater Dalton Chamber of Commerce with your email address for communication purposes. This includes your email availability to interested parties on the Greater Dalton Chamber website at www.daltonchamber.org

We will NEVER sell or rent individual email information with anyone unless ordered by a court of law. Information submitted to us is only available to employees of the Chamber managing this information for Chamber purposes, e.g., contact for information, updates of events, referrals from interested parties, and so on.

Each of our broadcast emails via Constant Contact or other means contains an easy, automated way for you to cease receipt of Chamber emails from us. If you wish to do this, simply click on the OPT OUT option on the bottom of the email or reply with REMOVE in the subject line of an email to us.

Please send any suspicious, unsolicited or other electronic correspondence that is purported to be sent from our database with an unknown sender or non-Chamber-related email address. Send those emails to info@daltonchamber.org for our review and action. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 706-278-7373.
