Your Privacy 
At the Central Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce, we strive to protect your privacy. We use the information we collect about you to process orders and to provide a more personalized online experience.


What Information Do We Collect? How Do We Use It? 
When you order, we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit-card number and expiration date. This allows us to process and fulfill your orders and to notify you of your order status.

You may voluntarily sign up to be informed about certain offers. For this service we need only an e-mail address, which we use to send the information you requested.

When you enter a contest or other promotional feature, we may ask for your name, address and e-mail address, so we can administer the contest and notify winners.

We personalize your online experience by using your purchases to shape our recommendations about other events and items that might be of interest to you. We also monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop the design and layout of the website.

We may also use the information we collect to occasionally notify you about important changes to the website, new Chamber services and special offers we think you’ll find valuable. If you would rather not receive this information, please notify us. Make sure to notify us for each account or e-mail address you have with us.

How Does Company Protect Customer Information?
The Central Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce uses Authorize.net and Elavon Inc. to process credit card payments. See their sites for their payment security information.
