INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT
We may require Customers who use the Website (collectively, the “Service”) to give us contact information, which may include but is not limited to the Customer’s name, birthdate, mailing address, phone number, email address, cookies, IP logs, and other information (collectively “Personal Information”). Besides the Personal Information, we may also collect other information regarding your use of the Website. From time to time, we may also collect or ask for additional Personal Information, which will also be expressly included herein as Personal Information. You can opt out of providing this additional information by not entering it or not using the Website, although not providing it may hinder your ability to use the Website and/or the Service.
We use the information that we collect to provide and maintain the Website as we deem appropriate in our sole discretion and to provide the Service, and to provide any other services that you and TGA agree to. We may also use the information to contact you to further discuss interest in our company, the goods and services that we provide, and to send information regarding our company or partners, such as promotions and events. You may be invited to receive an email newsletter or other correspondence by providing an email address. Your email address and any Personal Information will not be distributed or shared with third parties unless it is to transact such business as you have contracted us to do, to comply with any legal processes and/or law enforcement requests, or in order to conduct any business as we, in our sole subjective discretion, deem reasonable. We may also email (or send via other methods) information regarding updates to the Website or TGA, and may send a newsletter, or other correspondence. You will have an opportunity to unsubscribe to any emails or mailings by clicking on an “unsubscribe” hyperlink contained in promotional emails we send you. Even if you are removed from any such list, if you use the Service, you will continue to receive email correspondence from TGA related to the Service. Any opt-out by you is not deemed valid until processed by TGA. It is your obligation to verify that you have been opted-out. TGA shall not be liable for problems with the opt-out procedures.
If you provide credit card or other authorized payment method information to TGA, you authorize TGA, or a credit card processor of its choosing to receive appropriate billing information, bill such credit card or to make such charges as applicable
TGA is not intended to be used by children under the age of 14, nor do we authorize children under age 14 to use our Services. We will never knowingly communicate directly with children under 14 years of age. TGA does not knowingly collect or solicit any information from any person under the age of 14. Should we learn that we have collected Personal Information directly from a child under the age of 14, we will promptly delete that information. If you believe that TGA has collected information from a child under 14 years of age, please contact us.
The Website may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these other websites. You will need to check the policy statement of these other websites to understand their policies. When you access a linked site you may be disclosing private information. It is your responsibility to keep such information private and confidential.
When you view the Website, we may store some information on your computer’s hard drive. This information will be in the form of a “Cookie.” Most web browsers automatically accept Cookies, but you can change your browser to prevent that. Without accepting a Cookie, your use of the Service may be affected.
Please note that data that is transported over an open network, such as the Internet or e-mail, may be accessible to anybody. We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted via such open networks. When disclosing any personal information via an open network, you should remain mindful of the fact that it is potentially accessible to others, and consequently, can be collected and used by others without your consent. In particular, while individual data packets are often encrypted, the names of the sender and recipient are not. A third party may therefore be able to trace an existing bank account or relationship or one that is subsequently created. Even if both the sender and recipient are located in the same country data may also be transmitted via such networks to other countries regularly and without controls, including to countries that do not afford the same level of data protection as your country of domicile.
Your data may be lost during transmission or may be accessed by unauthorized parties. We do not accept any liability for direct or indirect losses as regards the security of your Personal Information or data during its transfer via Internet. Please use other means of communication if you think this is necessary or prudent for security reasons.
This Policy is part of the Terms and Conditions of the Website and any use of the Website is governed by those Terms and Conditions. Questions regarding this Policy or the practices of the Website should be directed to TGA by emailing such questions to [email protected]
