Our Promise to You About, Protecting Your Information:
The Surprise Regional Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to protecting your privacy and the privacy of our members. To that end, we have instituted certain policies to help us make sure our data files remains a safe, trusted and secure environment.
The Surprise Regional Chamber of Commerce does not rent, sell, or otherwise share our lists. Chambers who sell their lists cannot ensure the list will be reused or sold, and have no way of knowing if the purchaser is compliant with federal, state and local laws. The Chamber does allow members to post events on the Chamber Calendar and to distribute promotional materials at events, in specially designated areas.
How to get a lists of businesses
Businesses are encouraged to build their own names of prospects; preferable persons they have met face-to-face. The Chamber provides numerous opportunities for businesses to network with other businesses. The other option is to use the services of a list broker such as INFOUSA, US Data or DirectMail.com.
Why we don’t allow list rentals or purchases
The Chamber goes beyond the Can-Spam law to prohibit the sending of unsolicited commercial mail, emails and text messages. It’s a common practice for businesses not to sell the names of their customers, donors and prospects, for obvious reasons. The Chamber is working toward a true permission-based list, where as we seek permission from our members to send them specific kinds of information.
Keeping your personal information
To create and administer your Chamber account, we explicitly ask for and collect certain information about you and your company. Under no circumstances will we share your (or any other member’s) personal information with any third party. We will not disclose the amount of your dues, donations, employee counts, etc.
When the Chamber sends emails or text messages to you
The only messages you’ll receive from us will be messages related to your account or to inform you of Chamber events and activities. We might alert you to new features or site enhancements. Some of those emails may be directed to everyone, and some of them may be written just for you.

That information is transferred, using secure transmission technology, to a trusted, PCI compliant, third party for processing and securely stored by them to handle your transactions.
