This site is owned and operated by THE GREATER DUBOIS CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At THE GREATER DUBOIS CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe.

INFORMATION THE GREATER DUBOIS CHAMBER OF COMMERCE GATHERS AND TRACKS
THE GREATER DUBOIS CHAMBER OF COMMERCE gathers two types of information about users:
Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive our electronic newsletters or from participation in polls and surveys.
Information THE GREATER DUBOIS CHAMBER OF COMMERCE gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers' needs and to help our advertisers and sponsors better understand the demographics of our audience. Under no circumstances does THE GREATER DUBOIS CHAMBER OF COMMERCE divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
THE GREATER DUBOIS CHAMBER OF COMMERCE may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our sponsors, advertisers and partners. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
Consistent with the Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.
Usage tracking THE GREATER DUBOIS CHAMBER OF COMMERCE tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. THE GREATER DUBOIS CHAMBER OF COMMERCE does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).
THE GREATER DUBOIS CHAMBER OF COMMERCE sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms that users enter in our Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
