At the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce, your privacy and information is very important to us. The Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce staff is committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our members and visitors to our websites and access to our membership directory.

The following policy is designed to explain the way information is collected and used, so that everyone will feel secure in visiting and utilizing our sites and being included in the Chamber database.
The Chamber reviews the number of “hits,” “unique visitors,” “pageviews,” and “advertisement clicks” for its own statistical information purposes only. We make no attempt to link hits with the individuals who actually browse the sites. Advertisers who request the amount of clicks/hits or other websites statistics will be given this information for them to evaluate their return on investment on websites advertising. No personal information is available on who has visited the sites.
You can access our websites home page, www.castlerock.org or
www.visitcastlerock.org, and browse our sites without disclosing your personal information. Our websites do not enable our visitors to communicate with other visitors or to post information to be accessed by others.
This policy applies to all information collected or submitted on this websites. We do not collect personal identifying information on visitors to our websites except
- To the extent that your web browser provides information to our web server (for example, your IP address or the sites you link from); or

We do not collect information about our visitors from other sources such as private records, other websites, or other means of “email ranking.” The Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce utilizes “cookies” strictly to track the user for the duration of their visit to our websites for the sole purpose as mentioned above, for Chamber analytical use only. No personally identifiable information is stored in the cookie and it is not used for any subsequent tracking once the user leaves the sites.
The Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce maintains an up-to-date Chamber membership database on a secure server. The information collected in this database is for Chamber use only. Membership in the Chamber of Commerce is an implied effort by the member to be known within the membership and the community as a member in good standing who wishes to be contacted for services and/or products. This being said, on the chamber websites, members contact names, addresses, websites, and emails (if member wishes to be published) are available online in the accessible membership directory. For printed publications such as the annual Chamber membership directory, member businesses are listed with email addresses and websites when available. The Chamber does not provide the entire membership database on CD. It does provide, however, the printed membership directory to non-members free of charge and to non-members for a fee.
The Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce links to other member sites, or official sites for business related matters. The Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.
