    Information Collected at LubbockChamber.com 
    The information we collect from Lubbock Chamber of Commerce (LCC) Members, visitors and users of our websites allows us to personalize and continually improve your online experience, making it easier and more enjoyable. The following identifies the types of information we gather:

    Automatic Information 
    We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we employ "session variables" when you use our bulletin boards. A Session Variable acts to temporarily store a unique identifier [on your hard drive] when a user logs onto a LCC bulletin board or forum and ends when the user leaves the bulletin board and the time set expires. Also, if you choose to have a LCC password remembered when you visit a LCC website, then Cookies are utilized for this password related functionality. Cookies are pieces of data your web browser stores on your hard drive to enable our systems to recognize you and your browser. Most web browsers automatically accept these cookies, and will also allow you to instruct your browser to prevent the use of cookies. However, if you disable this feature, the described password related functionality and certain other aspects of our website may not function properly.
    ·Information You Give Us 
    We receive and may store any information you enter on our websites or give us in any other way. At times, we specifically ask for information about you when you register for or to use certain services, when you order a product, or when you join the LCC. We may require certain information -- such as name, Internet address or screen name, billing address, credit card number, etc. -- in order to provide that service or product to you.
    ·Information from Other Sources 
    For reasons such as improving the personalization of our service, we might receive/collect information about you from other sources and use it to supplement account information.
