The North San Diego Business Chamber is committed to protecting the privacy of our members, visitors, board members and staff. This includes all information collected from visitors to www.sdbusinesschamber.com and every commercial transaction initiated by customers on our web site.

By your use of our web site you signify your assent to this privacy policy. If you do not assent to this privacy policy, you are not permitted to use this web site. By your use of this web site following posted changes to this privacy policy, you signify your assent to those changes.

We collect non-personally identifiable information about you in a number of ways. The information we collect depends upon what you do when visiting our site.

If you visit our web site to read or download information, we collect and store only the following information about you: the name of the domain from which you access the Internet; the date and time you access our site; and the Internet address of the web site from which you linked directly to our site. We use the information we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our web site, and to help us make our web site more useful to visitors.

On your own initiative, you may decide to send us personally-identifying information, for example, you may choose to include such information in an electronic mail message, you may subscribe to our e-mail list, or you may opt into our text message service. Additionally, there may be times when we request that you provide us with personally-identifying information about yourself, such as your name, e-mail address, telephone number, address, organization name, products/services sold, and/or credit card information. We also maintain a record of your online purchases. However, if you provide us with your credit card information, we will retain only the last four digits of your credit card number and the transaction ID associated with your online purchase.

We will not obtain personally-identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us.

In general, we will only use the information you provide to us for the purpose for which such information was provided. We may also use this information to contact you when necessary; deliver to you information about our company; and/or perform trend analysis, pattern detection, and web site administration.

We may use personally-identifying information from you to respond to your inquiries or for other internal business purposes, but we do not sell or rent that information to third parties. However, you should be aware that although we have security measures in place, the possibility exists that others will illegally access such information and use it-though any such use would be without our consent.

The Chamber shall have the right to distribute your personally-identifying information to outside processors (e.g. banking service providers). Both the Chamber and its outside processors may (i.) use the information you provide as necessary to process your online purchases; (ii.) maintain the information as long as necessary or as required by law and used internally for record keeping, internal reporting, and support purposes; and (iii.) provide the information as required by law or court order, or to defend our rights in a legal dispute.
