Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy tells you what information we gather and how we use it. It applies only to the website (“JobKillers site”), and not to any other CalChamber website or any affiliate website. This Privacy Policy also does not apply to the websites of our business partners or to any third parties, even if their websites are linked to the JobKillers site. We recommend you review the privacy policies of the other websites that you visit.

Information We Collect

The JobKillers site collects two types of information:

  1. Personal Information


    When you contribute, sign up to Take Action, or request a draft letter be prepared, you may be asked to provide personal information. Personal information means any information that identifies you, such as your name, telephone number, email address, and home address.

  2. Website Activity Data

    Activity data is data regarding JobKillers site usage including pages viewed, the links you click, and other actions you take in regard to the JobKillers site. This data is gathered through several methods, and is tracked as a whole rather than individually.

Information Usage

CalChamber uses your personal information to carry out the transactions you have requested; send communications to you regarding upcoming activities that may be of interest to you; and as otherwise may be disclosed to you at the point of collection. CalChamber uses website activity data to track the JobKillers site — we never use it to personally identify you. By tracking we can build the most effective JobKillers site for all visitors. Generally, we look at how well pages, services or sections of the JobKillers site perform based on traffic. Specifically, we can determine which areas are most effective or appropriate based on the amount of traffic to particular areas.

Disclosing Personal Information

CalChamber may share your personal information with third parties to carry out the transactions you request. We may also disclose your personal information to business partners (subcontractors, vendors, or other entities) to further the goals of the JobKillers site and ChamberPAC. In addition, we may disclose your personal information when legally required or to protect our rights.

Cookies and Tracking

The JobKillers site uses “cookies” to track your traffic patterns. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies help us make improvements to the JobKillers site so that you can have a pleasant and productive experience. You can set your browser to send a warning message before accepting cookies or to refuse cookies. Check your browser for instructions on how to handle cookies.

“Do Not Track” Signals

Please note that while you may have the ability 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.

Notification of Privacy Changes

CalChamber reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time. When changes are made they will be posted to the JobKillers site immediately with a revised Effective Date. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Policy.

Third Party Sites

Please be aware that other websites that may be accessed through the JobKillers site may collect personally identifiable information about you. The information practices of those third-party websites are not covered by this Privacy Policy. CALCHAMBER DOES NOT HAVE ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE PRACTICES OF FIRMS, WEBSITES AND/OR OTHER SITES NOT OWNED BY THE CALIFORNIA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.

Credit Card Data

The JobKillers site uses a secured SSL encryption with all direct transactions that involve using credit card or banking information. This process allows the JobKillers site to send your credit card number and personal data over the Internet securely. Once encrypted, only the credit card’s authorization company has the ability to decrypt it.

Collection and Use of Children’s Information

The JobKillers site is not directed toward children. We do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13 through the JobKillers site. If you are under 18 years of age, please do not submit any personal information through the JobKillers site without the express consent and participation of a parent or guardian.
