The chapter’s website may contain “links” to other sites not affiliated with the chapter.  Every effort is made to link to sites that share the same standards regarding your privacy.  However, since Assistance League of Sonoma County is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites, users are encouraged to be aware, when they leave this site, to read the privacy statements of each and every website that they visit.  The information contained in the privacy policy statement of Assistance League of Sonoma County is for the website of the chapter only.
