Privacy Statement
TT and its subsidiaries respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it. TT provides this Privacy Statement to inform you of our privacy policy and practices and of the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. We've structured our web sites so that, in general, you can visit this Site on the web without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at the bottom of every web page on the Site. Some Site web pages are P3P-enabled.

This privacy statement applies to all TT-owned web sites and domains.

Our policy regarding the privacy of your information covers privacy principles consistent with the Fair Information Practices and the U.S. - E.U. Safe Harbor Principles: Notice, Choice, Access and Accuracy, Onward Transfer Security and Oversight (Enforcement).

Notice
TT uses personal information to better understand your needs and interest and provide you with better service. Once you choose to provide us with personal information, you can be assured that it will only be used to support your customer relationship with TT. We take seriously the trust you place in us. TT will not sell, rent or lease your personally identifiable information to others.

This privacy statement covers personally identifiable information, anonymous data collection and aggregate reporting. Personally identifiable information is any information that is associated with your name or personal identity. Anonymous (non-personal) information is data about usage and service operation, reported in aggregate, which is not associated to a specific personal identity. Aggregate information is data collected and summarized for a broad category of customers or TT services.

What we collect
On some TT web sites, you can order products or services, make information requests, subscribe to marketing or support materials, or register yourself or your TT products. The types of personal information you provide to us on these pages may include name, address, phone, email address, user IDs and passwords, billing information, transaction, credit card information and contact preferences.

To personalize our web sites, services or communications and improve our products and services, we may also ask you to provide us with information regarding your personal or professional interests, demographics, and experiences with our products or services. Providing this additional information is optional.

Anonymous (non-personal) data we collect may include the pages visited on ThumperTalk.com, unique URLs visited within ThumperTalk.com, browser type and IP address. Most anonymous data is collected via cookies or other analysis technologies. The Site uses cookies, web beacons and other technologies for data analysis and personalization services. TT uses cookies and web beacons on our web site and in third party ads.

TT does not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13 and TT products and services do not target information to children under 13. TT is committed to protecting the privacy needs of children and we encourage parents to take an active role in your child's online activities and interests.

How we use it
TT uses your information to help us understand your needs and interests and provide you with better services. Specifically, we use your information to help you complete a transaction or order, to communicate with you, to provide service and support, to update you on services and benefits, to personalize promotional offers and to personalize some TT web sites. Occasionally we may also use your information to contact you for market research regarding TT products or services. We will give you the opportunity to opt-out of market research and customer surveys. Credit card information is used only for payment processing and fraud prevention, and is not used for other purposes.

Anonymous (non-personal) data is aggregated for reporting about Site usability, performance, and effectiveness. It is used to improve the customer experience, usability and site content.

Who we share it with
TT will not sell, rent, or lease your personally identifiable information to others. TT will not share your personal information with a business partner or any unrelated third party company unless you give your permission. Your permission will be requested when you submit your information. TT shares customer information across TT business entities and our wholly-owned subsidiary shop.thumpertalk.com, within the usage limits described above in "How we use it".

Choice
TT will not sell, rent or lease your personally identifiable information to unrelated third party companies. Some TT services are linked with those from other unrelated third party companies, some which offer you the option to share personal data you give with both TT and the third party. Examples include the ability to register software products from multiple vendors from a single TT web page, request communications from TT marketing or solution partners or enable order completion through a reseller. We will not share your personal information with those third party companies unless you make that choice. Local country laws and policies are applied where they differ from those in the U.S.

Links provided on the Site to third party web sites are provided as a convenience and TT does not control those sites or their privacy practices, which may differ from ours. TT does not endorse or make any representations about them. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of any company before submitting your personal information. The personal data you choose to give to unrelated third parties is covered by their privacy policies, not the TT Privacy Policy. Some third-party companies may choose to share their personal data with TT; that sharing is governed by that third-party company's privacy policy.

Onward Transfer
Personal data given to TT may be transferred across state and country borders for the purposes of data consolidation, storage and simplified customer information management. The practices which govern this data movement are described in our commitments in the Choice and Security sections of this privacy statement.

Security
TT is committed to ensuring the security of your information. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy and ensure the appropriate use of the information, TT has in place appropriate physical, managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect. We use SSL encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information. Credit card numbers are only used for processing payment and are not used for other purposes. Our efforts to protect credit card fraud help protect your financial data security. As part of real-time payment processing, TT subscribes to a fraud management service. This service gives you and TT an extra level of protection to guard against credit card fraud.

TT privacy practices are self-certified to the U.S. Department of Commerce Safe Harbor Program. Local country laws and policies are applied and enforced by local data protection authorities where they differ from those in the U.S. For more information about the Safe Harbor, go to http://www.export.gov/safeharbor/.

Cookies & 3rd Party Advertisements
How TT uses cookies, web beacons and other analysis technologies on the Site and in third party ads. A "cookie" is a small data file transferred by a web site to your computer's hard drive. We send cookies when you surf our site, make purchases, request information, personalization, or register yourself or for certain services. Accepting the cookies used on our site does not give us access to your Personally Identifiable Information, but we may use the cookies to identify your computer. Many cookies are "session" cookies, meaning the cookie does not stay on your computer after you leave our web site or close your browser. The aggregate information collected permits us to analyze traffic patterns at our site. This can enable us over time to provide a better experience on our site by improving content or personalization and making it easier to use. Cookies that remain on your computer are often called "permanent" cookies. These types of cookies are used to facilitate shopping, personalization and registration services. For example, cookies can keep track of what you have selected to purchase as you continue to shop and allow you to enter your password only once on web pages where a logon is required.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually refuse cookies or selectively accept certain cookies by adjusting the preferences in your browser. If you turn off cookies, there may some features of our site that will not be available to you and some web pages may not display properly.

Some Site web pages and HTML-formatted email newsletters use web beacons in conjunction with cookies to compile aggregate statistics about web site usage. A web beacon is an electronic image, called a single-pixel (1x1), or clear-GIF. You may render web beacons unusable by rejecting their associated cookies. This data is not personally identifiable or linked to personally identifiable information.

Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on your site. Google's use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and other sites on the Internet. Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

We allow third-party companies to serve ads and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit our web site. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information.
