TAFS Privacy Policy

Last Updated Effective: January 10, 2017


Privacy Policy

We respect the privacy of our users and are committed to collecting, maintaining and securing their personal information provided through our website at www.tafs.com (the “Site”) in accordance with this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy describes the information that TAFS collects and how it’s used and shared. If you don’t agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy you may not access or use the Site. If you have any comments or questions about this Privacy Policy, feel free to contact us at tafsinc@tafs.com.

Information We Collect

When you create an account or submit a message to us through the Site then we may collect certain personally identifiable information, like your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, taxpayer identification number or other information that personally identifies you (collectively, “Personal Data”) as well as information that is not personally identifiable (“Non-Personal Data”). If Non-Personal Data is stored or associated with Personal Data then we will treat it in the same manner as Personal Data. As used in this Privacy Policy, “Data” refers to your Personal Data and Non-Personal Data. The principal types of Data that we may collect include:

  • Your Personal Information.
  • Financial and Accounts Receivable Information (if you are a business customer).
  • Communications with Us.
  • Location Data.
  • Public Comments on the Site.
  • Device Identifiers, Cookies, and Similar Technologies (see below)

Device Identifiers: When you use a mobile device to access the Site, we may access, collect, monitor, store on your device, and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers.” Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by TAFS.

Analytics, Cookies, and Similar Technologies: Like many websites, we use analytics and cookies to improve our services. We use third-party tools, like Google Analytics, to automatically record information about your browser and device type. We also use cookies (snippets of code that are stored by your browser) to enable us to recognize your browser on return visits and to help us better understand how and when users interact with TAFS services.  A cookie is a small file that resides on your computer, mobile phone, or other device, and allows us to recognize you when you return to the Site using the same computer and web browser. You can remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but in some cases doing so may impact your ability to use the Site.

Use of Data Collected By TAFS

TAFS will use your Personal Data to provide you certain services that you request and to improve our Site and services. Non-Personal Data will be used to enhance your user experience and for other business purposes.

TAFS also uses certain third parties to help us provide, improve, promote and protect the Site. For example, we may use third parties to help us provide customer support, assist with data storage, or for other purposes. These third parties may access, process or store your Data. We also may share with other third parties aggregated or anonymized information that does not directly identify you. If we’re involved in a reorganization, merger, acquisition or sale of our assets, your Data, including your Personal Data, may be transferred as part of that transaction but otherwise your Personal Data will not be sold by TAFS.

Third Parties And Adverstisement

The Site may contain links to other websites and services provided by third parties.  We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.  We may allow third-party advertisers to place ads on the Site.  These third-party advertisers may use cookies or similar technologies to help present the advertisements to you or to help measure the effectiveness of their advertisements.  Some advertisers may use cookies to serve ads based on your visits to the Site and other websites on the Internet.  The use of such technologies is subject to the privacy policies of the third-party advertisers and is not covered by this Privacy Policy.  As a result, if you respond to any such third-party advertisers by clicking on the advertisements and/or visiting their websites or the websites of any other third party, be sure you evaluate their privacy policies before providing them any of your information.  To opt-out of a third party’s use of cookies, you must visit such third party’s website and follow its specified opt-out procedures.  You can opt out of some, but not all, third-party advertiser cookies through the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out website, located at www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.  You may block all cookies by following the instructions applicable to your browser at http://www.aboutcookies.org/page-1.

Protection of Data

We use a variety of commercially reasonable security technologies to protect your Personal Data from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.  However, the use of such security technologies is not, and should not be considered to be, any guarantee or warranty by us that your Personal Data will not be accessed by third parties, or that we will use all available security technologies to prevent unauthorized access to, use, or disclosure of your Personal Data. There is no guarantee that your Personal Data may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, intercepted or destroyed by a breach of any of our security technologies. In the event of any breach of Personal Data you will be notified as required by law. It is your responsibility to protect the security of your login information. Please note that emails, instant messaging, and similar means of communication are inherently insecure, and we strongly advise you to not disclose any confidential information through these means.

How You Can Access Or Correct Your Personal Data

You can access and review any Personal Data that we collect online by contacting us. You can correct factual errors in any information by sending us a request that credibly shows error.
