Chrome uses Google Location Services to estimate your current location and prompts you to supply this information to requesting websites. Although you can't retract information Chrome already sent, you can prevent the site from receiving further locations, even if you inadvertently added an exception for the site. Because cookies can also store location information for later retrieval, you might also consider clearing the site's cookies. If you never plan to return to the site, deleting its History entry will remove all traces of your previous access.
