Privacy Policy

Copyright © 2015 by HRUSA™.

HRUSA is a division of CalChamber. All Rights Reserved.

Your privacy is one of our primary concerns. HRUSA makes every effort to provide you with a safe and private environment. This Privacy Policy tells you what information we gather and how we use it. It applies to all of HRUSA’s sites, including HRUSA-branded services and websites such as HRUSA.com (collectively referred to as “HRUSA Sites”), but not to those affiliate websites that have published their own privacy policies. 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 HRUSA Sites. We recommend you review the privacy policies of the other parties with whom you interact.

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, “Business Partners” means any subcontractor, vendor or other entity with whom we have an ongoing business relationship to provide products, services or information.

If you make a purchase, we may ask for your credit card number and billing information. Forms that you may fill in will indicate whether information requested is required or optional.

We may collect information about your visits to HRUSA Sites, including the pages you view, the links and ads you click, search terms you enter, and other actions you take in connection with HRUSA Sites and services. We may also collect certain information from the browser you used to access to a HRUSA Site, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type and language, access times, the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) of the website that referred you to the HRUSA Site and to which website you browse away from a HRUSA Site.

In order to offer you a more consistent and personalized experience in your interactions with HRUSA Sites, information collected through one source may be combined with information obtained through other HRUSA resources. We may also supplement the information we collect with information obtained from other parties.

Some HRUSA offerings may be co-branded and offered in conjunction with another company. If you register for or use such offerings, both HRUSA and the other company may receive information collected in conjunction with the co-branded services, and may use the information according to each company’s privacy policy and other agreements with you.

HRUSA uses your Personal Information to:

  • Deliver the services and support or carry out the transactions you have requested;

  • Customize, analyze and improve our products, services, technologies, communications and relationship with you;
  • Protect the security or integrity of HRUSA Sites, our business, or our products or services; or
  • Otherwise, as disclosed to you at the point of collection.

Disclosing Personal Information

HRUSA 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 to provide you with information you may find useful (for example, discounts and upcoming activities), so that you can share through social media, and to update our records.

Collection and Use of Children’s Information

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

Cookies and Tracking

HRUSA Sites use “cookies” to enable you to sign in to our services and to track your traffic patterns. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies help us personalize and make improvements to HRUSA Sites 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. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to use all of the features of HRUSA Sites.


Online Behavioral Advertising by HRUSA and Others

HRUSA also works with third party advertising and personalization partners that use cookies to help us display personalized content and appropriate advertising during your visits to HRUSA Sites and other websites. These cookies identify the pages you view, the links and ads you click on, other actions you take on those web pages, and the site from which you came before arriving at a web page. This also helps us measure the performance of our advertising campaigns.

Similarly, third parties use cookies to deliver advertising for companies other than HRUSA to you on the internet, whether you are on HRUSA Sites or other websites, based on your visits to HRUSA Sites and other websites. These cookies assist the third parties in identifying the pages you view, the links and ads you click on, other actions you take on those web pages, and the site from which you came before arriving at a web page.

If you would like to opt out of this program, please visit the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page located at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices.

“Do Not Track” Signals

Please note that while you may have the ability to opt-out of targeted advertising through the http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices link above and you may be able 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. HRUSA 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.

Email Marketing

Some marketing you receive, including email marketing, may also be personalized based on your visits to HRUSA Sites. In addition, when you click on some links in the email marketing, our email service provider may place a cookie on your browser. This cookie would be linked to your email address and used to gather information about the products and services you view on HRUSA Sites. Information gathered may be used to personalize and customize future email marketing messages you receive. You may opt out of receiving email marketing by clicking on the unsubscribe link provided in the email message you receive from HRUSA.

Third-Party Websites

Please be aware that other websites that may be accessed through HRUSA’s Sites may collect personal information about you. The information practices of those third-party websites are not covered by this Privacy Policy. HRUSA DOES NOT HAVE ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE PRACTICES OF ENTITIES, WEBSITES AND/OR OTHER SITES NOT OWNED BY HRUSA.
