Safeguards

TAI uses reasonable administrative, technical, personnel, and physical measures to safeguard your Personally Identifiable Information against loss, theft, and unauthorized use or modification. We update and test our security technology on an ongoing basis.

Child Privacy

Because of the nature of our business, our products and services are not designed to appeal to minors, and therefore we do not knowingly attempt to solicit or receive any information from children. Our terms and conditions of use require that any registration may only be made by those age 18 or older and that any product or service purchases may only be made by those age 18 or older. If we have reason to believe that information is being provided by a child under the age of 18, TAI will not collect the information without parental consent or parent notification, which will include the opportunity for the parent to prevent the use of the information or to prevent the child's participation in the activity. Without parental consent, online information will only be used to respond to an unsolicited request and for no other purposes. We recognize that protecting children's identities and privacy online is important and that the responsibility to do so rests with both the online industry and with parents.

No Contract

This Privacy Policy for Customers and Potential Customers does not constitute a contract between TAI and any customer or potential customer.

Changes to This Policy

As our business changes, this Privacy Policy for Customers or Potential Customers is expected to change from time to time, and we reserve the right to change it at any time. The use of your information is subject to the Privacy Policy for Customers or Potential Customers in effect at the time of use. The provisions contained herein supersede all previous notices or statements regarding our privacy practices with respect to customers and potential customers.
