Cookie Use Notice
Cookies are small pieces of temporary data that are exchanged between a web site and a user's computer which enable a "session", or "dialog", to be established between the two machines. With the session established, the Chamber is able to tailor its responses (i.e., identify and provide you with the information you want) and help you traverse our web pages in the most efficient and effective manner possible. The session is often broken when the Chambers server does not receive further requests from your computer or you simply exit your browser.

The Chamber does not use cookies to collect any personally identifying information from users or to track user activities beyond our web site.
