    Privacy Policy

    The ErieNY-Politics.com has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website: skangop.com

    The choice of how much personally identifiable information about yourself to disclose to The ErieNY-Politics.com is left completely up to you. But however you choose to interact with The ErieNY-Politics.com, you have our guarantee of privacy:

    We will never willfully disclose individually identifiable information about our customers/visitors to any third party without first receiving that customer's/visitor's permission.

    Information Gathered

    Sometimes we use a feature of your browser called a "cookie" to assign a "User ID". Cookies, by themselves, cannot be used to find out the identity of any user. ErieNY-Politics.com User ID automatically identifies your computer - but not you - to our servers when you visit our site. This random number lets us keep track of "How many" times customers/visitors are doing specific things - like visiting our site each month. Unless you specifically tell us, ErieNY-Politics.com will never know who you are, even though we assign your computer a cookie.

    You may, however, elect to tell us things that you want ErieNY-Politics.com to remember. We hope that, like many of our visitors, you will want to provide information about yourself to the ErieNY-Politics.com because it will make our web site more valuable to you. If you are comfortable providing us with information about yourself, enhanced services may be available to you that are impossible for us to offer to anonymous users. Examples of such enhanced services would be automatic delivery of ErieNY-Politics.com News Letters or news of special events by e-mail. In these instances, we may retain information about you between computing sessions by using the cookie or data file.

    Demographic and profile data is also collected at our site. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site. Your IP address is used to gather broad demographic information. We use this data to tailor our visitor's experience at our site, showing them content that we think they might be interested in, and displaying the content according to their preferences.

    Our site's volunteer form when in use requires users to give us contact information (like their name and email address). We use customer contact information from the volunteer form to contact the visitor when necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.

    Our site uses an order form for customers to request information, products, and services. We collect visitor's contact information (like their email address). Contact information from the order form is used to send orders and information about the Chamber or Community to our customers and visitors. The customer's/visitor's contact information is also used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.

    Our occasional online surveys may ask visitors for contact information (like their email address) and demographic information (like their zip code, age, or income level). We use contact data from our surveys to send the user information about the ErieNY-Politics.com and events. The customer's/visitor's contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.

    We may run contests occasionally on our site in which we ask visitors for contact information (like their email address). The customer's/visitor's contact information is used to contact the visitor when necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.

    This site may at times make chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.
