What information does the Chamber collect and does the Chamber do with it?

Our system also may gather information about the areas you visit on our site as well as the IP address you use to connect to our site. We would not share any of this data on an individual basis (we may share it in an aggregate form without personal identifiers) with any outside company other than perhaps consultants or service providers of the Chamber who were assisting us in serving you better. Of course, to the extent that we would ever share any of that information with a consultant or service provider, we would only do so if that party agreed to protect your private information by adopting a privacy policy at least as stringent as our own. We do use navigational information both in the aggregate and on an individual basis to understand how our visitors use www.roanokechamber.org so that we can make our site better. We do not keep track of where you go on the World Wide Web.
