What this privacy policy covers.

This privacy policy applies to personal information that the Women’s Chamber of Commerce of Palm Beach County, Inc. (referred to in this policy as the “Chamber”, “we”, “us” or “our”) collects and receives, including information related to your use of our website.  Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address or phone number, and other information that is not otherwise publicly available.  This Privacy Policy describes:

  • What information we collect
  • How we use and share your information
  • The choices you can make about how we collect, use and share your information

Personal information may become available to the Chamber through your use of our website and through your Chamber membership or submission of additional information to the Chamber.  Our collection and use of your personal information will depend on the extent to which you provide us with your personal information through this website, when and if our website requests information from you. We may also combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from your or other sources.

If you, as a visitor, choose to use our website or submit information to us in connection with your use of this website, then you agree to the Chamber’s use of such personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the Chamber Terms and Conditions.  Should you agree to release your personal information to any third party, the privacy policy of the Chamber will not apply; such third parties have their own privacy policy.

Unless we obtain your written permission to use your personal information for other purposes, the Chamber will only use your personal information for the following purposes: (i) to provide Chamber members with a list of fellow members and contact information for networking purposes, (ii) to provide Chamber members with networking opportunities, (iii) to respond to your requests and inquiries, (iv) to provide you with information about the Chamber’s products and services, (v) to improve our products and services, (vi) to conduct research, and (vii) to contact you.

At anytime, you may request that we discontinue sending you promotional materials, and we will use reasonable efforts to comply with your request.  Please follow the opt-out instructions provided in our communication or contact us.

Upon request by a member of the Chamber, the Chamber provides a list of Chamber member names and contact information to the requesting member for networking purposes.  The Chamber does not otherwise directly rent, sell or share personal information about you with other people, companies or other entities, unless you specifically provide us with your permission to do so.  However, the Chamber cannot and does not control use of membership lists and member contact information once it delivers this information to a requesting member.
Storing and Processing Your Information

We may also share your personal information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action against illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of the Chamber Terms and Conditions, or as otherwise required by law.  In the event that a third party acquires the Chamber or any of its assets, personal information held by the Chamber may be one of the assets transferred. In such an event, we will notify you as explained below, under “Changes to this Privacy Statement.”

Changes to this Privacy Statement

On occasion, it may be necessary for the Chamber to change the terms of this Privacy Policy.
