What Information Is Collected
When you visit this Site, we recognize only your domain name and not your e-mail address. We will not have access to your e-mail address unless you fill out a form or send us an e-mail message. We may also collect information about you if you register on a page, fill out a survey, place an order, upload content, post blog entries or comments, participate in our contests or if you otherwise voluntarily tell us about yourself or your activities. We customarily collect Internet-related Information from visitors to our Site, including the referring URL, your IP address, which browser you used to come to this Site, the country, state or province, the pages of our Site that you viewed during your visit and any search terms you entered on our Site, for the purposes of system administration, to gather broad demographic information, and to monitor the level of Site activity. We track customers' traffic patterns throughout their online sessions, including which pages or specific URLs a customer views while using the Site. We use your Internet-related Information to diagnose problems with our servers and software and to administer our Site to better serve you.
How Information Is Used
This Site uses pixels, or transparent GIF files, to help manage our online advertising and to help us manage our content by informing us what content is effective. Transparent GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users.
From time to time, we employ other companies to perform certain functions on our behalf, such as blog website hosting, fulfilling orders, delivering packages, and services related to the design, maintenance and improvement of this Site and our database and related systems. Regardless of whether you have provided us with consent, we will share your information with those companies that perform certain functions on our behalf under contract to us, as well as in the following other situations. We may also need to disclose personal information if required by law; when we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding; to respond to a court order or legal process served on us; or when necessary to protect the rights, safety or property of users of this Site, the public or TPI. If we merge with or are acquired by another company, if we sell all or substantially all of our relevant assets or file for bankruptcy, we may disclose personal information to an acquirer or Trustee. We may also disclose non-identifiable information about our users to third parties. We may also disclose personally identifiable information if you have given us consent to do so.
Our users are given the opportunity to opt-out of having their email address used for commercial emails from TPI at the time they receive any marketing email messages from us (alternatively, we give our users the ability to opt-in before receiving such commercial marketing messages if we are required to give such an option under local law). In any case, users who no longer wish to receive our promotional communications may opt-out of receiving these communications by modifying their preferences in their Site user profile, or by contacting us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Use of This Website by Children
This Site is not designed for, nor do we believe it is appealing to, children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. We encourage children to consult their parents before providing personal information.
This Site may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of each and every site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Site.
We currently use and will continue in the future to use reasonable efforts to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the Site, we use reasonable efforts to protect our users' information both online and off-line. When our order form asks users to enter credit card numbers, that information is encrypted and is protected with encryption software. While on a secure page, such as our checkout page, the lock icon on the bottom of most Web browsers becomes locked.
When we use software to protect your information online, we also use reasonable efforts to protect your information off-line. Access to our users' information is restricted to employees of our company and its affiliates and agencies who need the information to perform a specific job (such as billing or shipping).
Correcting, Updating or Deleting Personal Information
If a user's personally identifiable information changes, or if a user no longer desires our service or in all other cases, we provide a way to access, correct, update or delete a user's personally identifiable information. This can be done by logging into your profile at this Site's registration on the home page or by emailing our customer support at email@example.com. If you request that we delete your personally identifiable information or deactivate your account we may retain aggregate information developed from your personal information.
