TL may place Internet “cookies” on visitors’ hard drives. Internet cookies save data about individual visitors, such as the visitor’s name, password, user-name, shopping cart, screen preferences, and the pages of a site viewed by the visitor. When the visitor revisits the Site, TL may recognize the visitor by the Internet cookie and customize the visitor’s experience accordingly. Visitors may decline Internet cookies, if any, by using the appropriate feature of their Web client software, if available.
When a visitor performs a search within the Site, TL may record information identifying the visitor or linking the visitor to the search performed. TL may also record limited information for every search request and use that information to solve technical problems with the services available directly or indirectly in connection with the Site and to calculate overall usage statistics.
1. Use of Personal Data Collected
Personal data collected by TL may be used by TL for many reasons, for example, for editorial and feedback purposes, for marketing and promotional purposes, for a statistical analysis of users’ behavior, for product development, for content improvement, for fulfillment of a requested transaction or record keeping, or to customize the content and layout of the Site. Aggregate data on visitors’ home servers may be used for internal purposes, and individually identifying information, such as names, postal and e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and other personal information which visitors voluntarily provide to TL may be added to TL’s databases and used for future calls and mailings regarding Site updates, new products and services, and upcoming events.
TL also may use Site visitor data to contact the Site visitors regarding account status and changes to the submissions agreement, privacy statement, and any other policies or agreements relevant to Site visitors.
2. Disclosure of Personal Data to Third Parties
TL shall not disclose any of your personally identifiable information to third parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing, TL may disclose or distribute identifiable or non-identifiable data to a third party with which TL enters or reasonably may enter into a corporate transaction, such as, for example, a merger, consolidation, acquisition, or asset purchase, or to a third party pursuant to a subpoena, court order, or other form of legal process, in response to a request by or on behalf of any local, state, federal, or other government agency, department, or body, whether or not pursuant to a subpoena, court order, or other form of legal process, or if determined by TL in its sole judgment that such disclosure or distribution is appropriate to protect the life, health, or property of TL or any other person or entity. While TL may undertake efforts to see that such third party is under a contractual obligation to use the personal data solely for the purposes for which the data was disclosed, such third parties may be independent third parties over which TL may not exercise control, and TL is not responsible for their conduct, actions, omissions, or information handling or dissemination practices and TL will not be liable therefor.
