Privacy Policy

We collect no personally identifiable information about you when you visit our site unless you choose to provide that information to us. Please see “Information you provide voluntarily” below.

For the protection of users of our website, we have safeguards in place to identify and prevent unauthorized attempts to access or cause harm to information and systems.

Our web server automatically collects the default information logged by most servers; this information includes the Internet protocol (IP) address from which you access our web site, the type of browser and operating system you are using, the date and time you visit, the pages and files your request, and the last site you visited (if that site contained a link to our website). We use this information to determine the level of traffic through the server and the level of interest in the individual files available on the server. None of this information identifies you personally, and we do not give, sell, or transfer any of this information to a third party.

The logs may be preserved indefinitely, and they may be used to prevent security breaches and to ensure the integrity of the data on our servers.


Session Cookies and Marshall Satisfaction Surveys

The Marshall Chamber may at times conduct surveys to measure customer satisfaction with this website. This survey uses a session cookie to track how many pages a particular visitor has clicked on. This ensures that a visitor has sufficiently browsed the site in order to adequately answer the survey and to prevent an individual from getting a survey multiple times in a single session. Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of a session.


Information You Provide Voluntarily

If you give us information about yourself in an e-mail or through a feedback page, any information you provide is used only to help us prepare a response. As we do so, the information you provided may be viewed by various people within the Marshall Chamber of Commerce. The information you provide is protected in accordance with law (e.g., the Privacy Act and the Freedom of Information Act). Submitting voluntary information constitutes your consent to the use of the information for the stated purpose.

The Marshal Chamber of Commerce e-mail system is password-protected. Similarly, access to information submitted through the feedback mechanism (typing information in the feedback box and clicking on “Submit”) is password-protected. Only authorized users have access to the Chamber e-mail system and feedback mechanism.
