TCS respects your privacy and is committed to protecting personally identifiable information that you provide in connection with your use of the Site and the Services.
E-MAIL NEWSLETTER SUBSCRIPTIONS
To subscribe to our e-mail newsletters, you will need to provide your e-mail address.
In order to make online purchases (“Purchases”), you will need to provide personally identifiable information, such as name, mailing address, e-mail address, and phone number. Your information may be collected by TCS or by a third party, such as a co-sponsor or a vendor involved in, or providing services in connection with, a Special Promotion, or an e-commerce partner.
INFORMATION ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE
Some TCS sites and Services may ask you to submit personally identifiable information about other people. For example, you might submit a person’s name and other personally identifiable information if you purchase a gift and want to have it sent directly to the recipient. A record of that transaction will be maintained as allowed and/or required by law.
NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT
In many cases, TCS will automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information about your use of the Site and the Services. TCS might collect, among other things, information concerning the date, time and length of your visit and the type of Internet browser or computer operating system you are using, the domain name of your Internet service provider, your “click path” through the TCS sites or “click-through” from an e-mail, the Web site or advertisement that was linked to or from the TCS site when you visited, and your IP address. If you are using our wireless Services, we may also automatically collect information such as the type of wireless device you are using, your mobile identification number (assigned by your telecommunications carrier) and telecommunications carrier. Your use of the Site and the Services, and information provided through these technologies, will be anonymous unless you provide us with personally identifiable information or have provided such information in the past.
COOKIES AND RELATED TECHNOLOGY
NO SPAM, SPYWARE OR SPOOFING
We do not tolerate spam. You are not licensed or otherwise permitted to add other users on the Site and the Services to your mailing list (email or physical mail, or any other medium) without their explicit consent. To report spam or spoof emails to TCS, please forward the email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may not use our communication tools to send spam or otherwise send content that would violate the TOS.
USE, DISCLOSURE AND SHARING OF INFORMATION
NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
From time to time, TCS may use and share with third parties aggregate, non-personally identifiable user information to show general demographic and preference information among users of the Site and the Services.
PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
TCS uses information about you to deliver the Services that you request, to keep you informed about changes affecting the Site and the Services or your account, to inform you of offers in which you might be interested, to improve and enhance the Site and the Services, to prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities, and to enforce our TOS. If you provide TCS with personally identifiable information, we will take all reasonable and appropriate steps to protect it from unauthorized disclosure.
If you opt in to receive e-mail from us, you can always opt out of future marketing messages by following the directions in each message to “unsubscribe.”
OUR COMMITMENT TO DATA SECURITY
While TCS takes reasonable and appropriate precautions to protect your personally identifiable information from unauthorized disclosure and to prevent possible security breaches in our Web sites, Services, and customer databases, no Web site, Internet transmission, computer system, or wireless connection is completely secure. Consequently, TCS cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur.
Whenever you give TCS sensitive or confidential information (for example, credit card numbers for Purchases), TCS will take commercially reasonable steps to protect the information by establishing a secure connection with your Web browser. TCS employs a security technology known as a secure-socket-layer (“SSL”) to protect the transmission of payment information to the site. Unless otherwise specified herein or on the site where you make a Purchase, credit card numbers are used only for payment processing and are not retained for marketing purposes.
HYPERLINKS TO AND FROM OTHER SITES
TCS sites may frame, and/or contain links to, or advertisements about, non-TCS Web sites. Other sites may also reference, advertise, or link to TCS sites. TCS does not endorse or sponsor other Web sites, is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of non-TCS sites, expressly disclaims any statements or assertions made on such Web sites, and denies all liability associated with your use of, and the content on, such other sites and advertisements.
