Your information is collected through the membership application form, downloading resource content, and/or event registration forms. You should be aware that if you disclose any information on an event post/flyer or in a chat room or other open forum that is hosted by the Garland Chamber, others may collect that information to send you unsolicited information from outside sources or for other purposes.

You will always have the ability to opt out from receiving information from the Garland Chamber as well as from said third parties.

The Garland Chamber does not collect sensitive demographic information unless coupled with personally identifiable information.

Use of Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Use of Cookies

Our website uses “cookies” (i.e. a small data file that our website writes to a user’s hard drive) to help track your usage of our site, including what advertising you have seen. The Garland Chamber’s cookies do not include personal information about you, but they are unique to each user and include a member ID # (a randomly generated unique number) that enables the Chamber’s website to identify you when you visit, so you: (1) do not have to remember your username and password each time you visit the website; and (2) receive any personalized services you requested when you registered.

Neither our website, nor the cookies we write to the hard drives of our users, read any data off of your hard drive outside of our cookies. This includes not reading any cookie files created by other websites.

You can refuse our cookies by turning them off in your browser (for more information on how to do this, please refer to your browser’s documentation). You do not need to have cookies turned on in your browser to use our website; however, without cookies, certain automated function and features of our website will not be available to you. We also use cookies to measure the click through rate on emails delivered.
