Company Practices Regarding Your Privacy
Non-Personally Identifiable Consumer Information
TMC Enterprises collects various types of information from you to better meet your needs and to provide you with a more relevant user experience. The type of information your browser or Internet session may automatically provide us with can include the browser you are using, your Internet domain, the operating system on your computer, your IP address and the URL you saw just before coming to the TMC Enterprises site, the pages of the site you visited and the URL of the page you visited upon leaving the site.
Personally Identifiable Consumer Information
In addition, at some of the TMC Enterprises web sites, we collect information that you may choose to provide to us when requesting additional information from us or from one or more of our clients. Examples of personally identifiable data that you may provide to us include name, address, and email address. If you provide personally identifiable data to us, you may later elect to have your information deleted from our files, or kept from being used for purposes other than for the service requested, by following the opt-out procedures set forth below.
How Collected Information is Used
The non-personally identifiable information that TMC Enterprises collects is used for marketing and sales efforts to better target advertisements and other content in an effort to create a more personally relevant experience. The information is also used to predict responses to advertisements, and to help determine which ads perform best and which content is most appropriate for different individuals.
If you elect to provide TMC Enterprises with personally identifiable information, we may utilize such information for marketing purposes, and this use may result in follow-up communications from TMC Enterprises and from our clients. In addition, that information may be combined with information collected from other sources to assist with targeting ads to your preferences and behaviors, and for other TMC Enterprises sales and marketing efforts.
Sharing Information with Third Parties
All personally identifiable information you provide is maintained in confidence by TMC Enterprises. There are instances, however, in which your personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information is shared with third parties, as described below.
Your non-personally identifiable data may be shared with third-party partners of TMC Enterprises on an anonymous basis. When you request information from TMC Enterprises or one or more of our clients, we may transfer that information within TMC Enterprises or route your information to our client(s), across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world, so that they may provide the information on their product or service that you requested. We may also disclose information to a third party who provides substantially similar services as the original service about which you requested more information. In such situations, we will provide you with an opportunity to opt-out of such sharing. Please be aware that TMC Enterprises is very careful in selecting companies with whom it does business. In addition to the above situations where your information may be shared with others, there is also the possibility that TMC Enterprises, or part(s) of the company, may one day be purchased by, or merged with, another company. In the event of such transaction, the acquiring (or merging) company will have access to all collected personally identifiable information. Finally, TMC Enterprises may share your information as necessary to comply with a court order or to cooperate with government and law enforcement officials.
Wherever your personally identifiable information may be held within TMC Enterprises or on its behalf, we intend to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the information you shared with us from unauthorized access or disclosure. Please note that while TMC Enterprises will make every reasonable effort to protect your information, no transmission of data over the Internet is 100% secure.
Protecting your privacy online is an evolving process, and TMC Enterprises' web sites are constantly changing to meet these demands. While we cannot guarantee privacy perfection, we will address any issue to the best of our abilities as soon as practicable after you bring it to our attention.
