I. The Types of Information We Collect About You
When you enter and browse the Site, we may collect two different types of information about you: information you provide to us, and information we collect through technology.
A. Information You Provide to Us
In order to obtain access to certain information or materials provided via the Site, you may have to provide information that we collect and store in a way that allows us to relate it to you personally, including but not limited to your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, facsimile number. We refer to such information as personally identifiable information. Additionally, we may collect and retain a record of all communications with you.
B. Information We Collect Through Technology
The Site may also use other technical methods to track and analyze the traffic patterns on the Site, such as the frequency with which our users visit various parts of the Site. These technical methods may involve the transmission of information either directly to us or to another party authorized by us to collect information on our behalf. We may also use these technical methods in HTML e-mails that we send our Site users to determine whether such users have opened those e-mails and/or clicked on links in those e-mails. We may collect the information from use of these technical methods in a form that is personally identifiable.
II. How Personally Identifiable Information We Collect About You is Used
TSC does not disclose any nonpublic personally identifiable information to any nonaffiliated third party, except where permitted by law.
We may use your personally identifiable information in several ways.
We may also store your personally identifiable information and share it with our affiliates. We may use this information for marketing, research and other business purposes, and we may associate your personally identifiable information with other information we collect about you, such as details about your usage patterns and interests, in each case to the extent permitted by law.
We may also use service providers to facilitate our services or platform functions on our behalf. These companies and individuals may have access to your personally identifiable information, as permitted by law and as needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for another purpose.
III. How Non-Personally Identifiable Information We Collect About You is Used
Non-personally identifiable information is information that does not personally identify you, including anonymous information and aggregate data. We may use this information to understand better how our visitors use the Site, research our visitors’ demographics, interest, and behavior, improve the Site, provide visitors with customized services and information, and for other similar purposes. We may combine this information with personally identifiable information. We may share this information with others, such as investors, for information or promotional purposes to the extent permitted by law. TSC, however, reserves the right to use this information in any manner permitted by law.
IV. Protection of Information; No Guarantee of Security
We endeavor to protect your personal information. We use both technical and procedural methods to maintain the integrity and security of our databases, including firewalls. Please be aware though that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We will not be responsible or liable for any damages, losses or causes of action arising out of or in connection with the disclosure of your personally identifiable information.
VI. International Use, Governing Law and Forum
TSC makes no claims that materials on the Site are appropriate or may be downloaded for use in locations outside the United States. Access to the Site from countries or territories where such access is illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access the Site outside the United States do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws.
