OUR COLLECTION AND USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We collect and use information about you which will help us administer our business or provide products, services or other opportunities to you. Among other things, we use the information we learn about you to help us personalize and improve the experience you have on our website, to respond to your requests and to communicate with you.
Personal Data We Collect
The types of information we collect, retain and use include the following:
1. Site Use Information
In general, you can visit the Site without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Our web servers collect the domain names, not the email addresses, of visitors.
2. Registration Information You Provide to Us
Personally Identifiable Information and Voluntarily Provided Additional Information
Generally, you are not required to register in order to access our Site. However, when you send us an email, contact us to provide or receive information or news, receive products or services or register in connection with a specific area of the Site, we collect profile information from you ("Personally Identifiable Information”). When you register, we require that you provide the following Personally Identifiable Information:
- Your first and last name;
- Email address; and
- Other information as requested in the applicable registration pages.
At your option, you may voluntarily provide additional information (including employment history if you are seeking employment at TAI). Although you may choose not to provide the optional information to us, it may result in some features not being available to you.
How Long We Keep Your Information
The personal data that is collected by us will only be retained as long as necessary for business continuity or valid legal purposes.
How We Use the Information We Collect
1. Site Use Information
This information may be aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the Site, pages viewed, the site you visited just before coming to this Site, internet service provider, etc. This information ("Behavior Profiles") is used to measure the use of our Site and to improve the content we offer.
2. Personally Identifiable Information
- To respond to your inquiries;
- To process an order or request;
- To contact you regarding account status or customer service;
- To ask you for feedback on our service;
- To let you know about products or services which may be of interest to you;

When you register, order products or services or provide information through this Site, you consent to allow us to contact you for these purposes.
We may store the information you share with us for marketing research and other marketing purposes. You consent to our making your email addresses available to other reputable organizations associated with TAI whose products or services we think you may find interesting.
If you do not want to receive information about our products and services, you will be provided with the opportunity to easily opt-out of participation or you may contact WebMaster@txtav.com.
Be aware that when you voluntarily disclose personal information in public areas of the Site, such as chat rooms or bulletin boards, this information may be seen and used by others. So be sure to exercise good judgment when sharing personal information in these forums.
3. Email Communications
We use your email address to contact you to respond to your inquiries or to provide information on products or services to you. To help us determine whether you have received an email from us and to help us make emails more useful and interesting, we may receive a confirmation that you have opened an email from us.
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 purpose. 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.
RESTRICTIONS ON DISCLOSING INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES
We do not sell or lease your Personally Identifiable Information to others, but we may share your Personally Identifiable Information with our affiliated companies or authorized representatives and you agree to allow us to do so.

SECURITY PROCEDURES TO PROTECT INFORMATION
We maintain security standards and procedures to help prevent unauthorized access to confidential information about you. Our Site uses a combination of encryption technology and authentication to protect your Personally Identifiable Information. As long as the web browser you are using supports Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), your information will be submitted to us with a high level of security. We update and test our security technology on an ongoing basis. We have procedures limiting employee access to Personally Identifiable Information to those employees who have a business reason to know such information about you.
It is important for you to help protect against unauthorized access by signing off of our Site each time you finish using the Site.
