3. INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
The Greater Vineland Chamber of Commerce collects certain information from and about its users three ways: directly from our Web Server logs, the user, and with Cookies.
Web Server Logs.
When you visit our Website, we may track information to administer the site and analyze its usage. Examples of information we may track include:
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.
The Greater Vineland Chamber of Commerce reserves the right to share aggregated site statistics with partner companies, but does not allow other companies to place cookies on our website unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies.

Personal Information Users
Visitors to our website can register to purchase products or services. When you register, we will request some personal information such as name, address, email, telephone number or facsimile number, account number and other relevant information. If you are purchasing a product or service, we will request financial information. Any financial information we collect is used only to bill you for the services you purchased. Financial information and email addresses will not be shared or sold to third parties for any purposes without your express permission. If you purchase by credit card, this information may be forwarded to your credit card provider. For other types of registrations, we will ask for the relevant information. You may also be asked to disclose personal information to us so that we can provide assistance and information to you. For example, such data may be warranted in order to provide online technical support and troubleshooting.

The Greater Vineland Chamber of Commerce uses reasonable precautions to keep the information disclosed to us secure. The Greater Vineland Chamber of Commerce reserves the right to transfer all such information in connection with the sale of all or part of Greater Vineland Chamber of Commerce's capital stock or assets.

4. USE OF WEB BEACONS OR GIF FILES
The Greater Vineland Chamber of Commerce web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons sometimes also called single-pixel gifs that allow The Greater Vineland Chamber of Commerce to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. The Greater Vineland Chamber of Commerce may include Web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.
Some of these Web beacons may be placed by third party service providers to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications. These Web beacons may be used by these service providers to place a persistent cookie on your computer. This allows the service provider to recognize your computer each time you visit certain pages or emails and compile anonymous information in relation to those page views, which in turn enables us and our service providers to learn which advertisements and emails bring you to our website and how you use the site. The Greater Vineland Chamber of Commerce prohibits Web beacons from being used to collect or access your personal information.
