Cookies help us personalize and make improvements to CalChamber Sites so that you can have a pleasant and productive experience.

These cookies identify the pages you view, the links and ads you click on, other actions you take on those web pages, and the site from which you came before arriving at a web page. This also helps us measure the performance of our advertising campaigns.

    Similarly, third parties use cookies to deliver advertising for companies other than CalChamber to you on the Internet, whether you are on CalChamber Sites or other websites, based on your visits to CalChamber Sites and other websites.

    "Do Not Track" Signals

    Please note that while you may have the ability to opt-out of targeted advertising through the http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices link above and you may be able to control the use of cookies through your web browser as described in the “Cookies and Tracking” section above, some web browsers may give you the ability to enable a “do not track” setting that sends a special signal to the websites you encounter while web browsing. This is different from disabling certain forms of tracking by declining cookies in your browser settings, as browsers with the “do not track” setting enabled still have the ability to accept cookies. CalChamber does not respond to web browser “do not track signals” at this time. If we do so in the future, we will describe how we do so in this Privacy Policy.
