At TouchPro we take your privacy very seriously. We will never sell, trace or release your contact information to any other person or organization without your explicit permission or unless required by law, in which case we will inform you of that event.
When you fill out our online registration form you are providing us with contact information that we may use for future communication. We promise to show restraint in our email marketing and always give you a way to opt out at the bottom of every email.
As used in this policy, “personal information” means information that would allow a party to identify you such as, for example, your name, address or location, telephone number or email address.
We may collect personal information at several places on the Websites, including without limitation:
Emails and Newsletters. We use the personal information you provide to us when you send us emails or sign up to receive our newsletter or events listing in order to respond to your request — for example, to reply to your email or to send you communications about news and events related to TouchPro.
Personal information submitted as part of our email discussion lists is used for the purpose of managing the discussion lists. Your name and email address will typically be visible to other list participants when you correspond on the list and to the general public in the discussion archives. All emails sent to the discussions list are publicly archived.
Purchases and Donations. When you donate money to us or purchase merchandise, your personal information will be handled in one of two ways, depending on which option you choose.
Regardless of the method by which you donate to TouchPro or purchase merchandise, we additionally use the personal information you provide for the purpose of contacting you about upcoming news and events relevant to TouchPro. When we contact you for the first time after your purchase or donation, we will use reasonable means to give you the option to choose not to be contacted in this manner again.
Participating in Our Community: Registered Users. When you register to obtain a user account on any of the Websites (any such person, a “Registered User”), you may be asked to provide personal information to create your account and establish a password and profile. Providing your email address and/or real name is optional. If you do provide your email address, it will allow us to send you your password if you should forget it. If you voluntarily provide your real name in connection with any content you submit to any Website, your name may be associated with the content you contributed. We will also use that personal information to establish and maintain your membership and provide you with the features we provide for Registered Users, and for the purpose of contacting you about upcoming news and events relevant to TouchPro.
In general, it is not TouchPro’ practice to disclose personal information to third parties. We may share personal information in two instances:
First, TouchPro may share personal information with our contractors and service providers in order to maintain, enhance, or add to the functionality of the Websites.
If TouchPro is required to provide a third party with your personal information (whether by subpoena or otherwise), then provided we have collected and retained an email address for you, TouchPro will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that event, unless prohibited by law or TouchPro is otherwise advised not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.
TouchPro has implemented reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to and unlawful interception or processing of personal information that TouchPro stores and controls. However, no website can fully eliminate security risks. Third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. We will post a reasonably prominent notice to the Websites if any such security breach occurs.
Our Data Usage Policy covers how we maintain and use information about you that is collected by our Websites and server logs, including when you log into a TouchPro website.
Non Personal Browsing Information We Collect. When you use the Websites, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) may collect information indirectly and automatically (through, for example, the use of your “IP address”) about your activities while visiting the Websites and information about the browser you are using. In addition, whenever you log into a website, our servers (which, again, may be hosted by a third party service provider) keep a log of the websites you visit and when you visit them.
No Linking. We do not intentionally link browsing information or information from our server logs to the personal information you submit to us. We use this information for internal purposes only, such as to help understand how the Websites are being used, to improve our Websites and the features we provide, and for systems administration purposes. TouchPro may use a third party analytics provider to help us collect and analyze non personal browsing information through operation of our Websites for those same purposes.
No Retention. TouchPro discards non personal browsing information from our server logs once we have used the information for the limited purposes noted above, under “No Linking.”
Notice. If TouchPro is required to provide a third party with your non personal browsing information (whether by subpoena or otherwise), then TouchPro will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that event, unless TouchPro is prohibited by law from doing so or is otherwise advised not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.
The Websites are hosted in the United States. If you are accessing the Websites from the European Union, Asia, or any other region with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use and disclosure that differ from United States laws, please note that you are transferring your personal data to the United States which does not have the same data protection laws as the EU and other regions. By providing your personal data you consent to:
