1. The Types of Information We Collect About You
When you enter and browse the Site, we may collect two different types of information about you: information you provide to us, and information we collect through technology.
Information You Provide to Us. To obtain access to certain information or materials provided via the Site, you may have to provide information that we collect and store in a way that allows us to identify you personally, including your name, e-mail address, company name, and title. We refer to such information as personally identifiable information. Additionally, we may collect and retain a record of all communications with you.
Information We Collect Through Technology. We may collect information about you through technology. For example, we may collect your IP address each time you request a page during a visit to the Site. (An IP address is often associated with the portal through which you enter the Internet.) At times, we may also use IP addresses to collect information regarding the frequency with which users browse various parts of the Site.
The Site may also use other technical methods to track and analyze the traffic patterns on the Site, such as the frequency with which our users visit various parts of the Site. These technical methods may involve the transmission of information either directly to us or to another party authorized by us to collect information on our behalf. We may also use these technical methods in HTML e-mails that we send to our Site users to determine whether such users have opened those e-mails and/or clicked on links in those e-mails. We may collect the information from use of these technical methods in a form that identifies you personally.
We use software tools such as Google Analytics to measure and collect session information about your Site visits, including page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse overs), and methods used to browse away from the page. We may use this information to measure Site activity, to develop ideas for improving our websites and for any other purpose to the extent permitted by applicable law.
2. Cookies and How We Use Them
Cookies are small text files that may be placed on your browser when you visit our Site. Cookies are used primarily for administrative purposes, to improve your experience with our Site. For instance, when you return to the Site after logging in, cookies provide information to the Site, including personal information, so that the Site will remember who you are.
Using the settings of your Internet browser, you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. Consult your browser’s Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you choose to turn off cookies, you may not have access to many features that make your browsing of our Site smoother, and some of our services may not function properly. You may at any time delete any cookies set by us by using the relevant option of your Internet browser or by deleting the cookies on your hard drive. If you would like to modify your browser to notify you when you receive a new cookie or to disable cookies altogether, please refer to https://www.aboutcookies.org. If you continue without changing your settings, we’ll assume that you accept receipt of all cookies on the Site.
3. How We Use Your Personally Identifiable Information
TSG does not use or disclose any nonpublic personally identifiable information about its Site users to any nonaffiliated third party, except as set forth below.
We may also store your personally identifiable information and share it among our affiliates. We may use or disclose this information for marketing, research and other business purposes, and we may associate your personally identifiable information with other information we collect about you, such as details about your usage patterns and interests, but we will not sell this information or disclose it to third parties.
We may also use service providers to facilitate our services or platform functions on our behalf. These companies and individuals may have access to your personally identifiable information, as needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for another purpose.
4. How We Use Your Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-personally identifiable information is information that does not personally identify you, including anonymous information and aggregate data. We may use this information to understand better how our visitors use the Site, research our visitors’ demographics, interests, and behavior, improve the Site, provide visitors with customized services and information, and for other similar purposes. We may combine this information with personally identifiable information. We may use this information in any manner permitted by law, but any disclosure that identifies you personally will be governed by Section 3.
5. Do Not Track Signals
TSG does not track its customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals. However, some third party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, your browser allows you to set the DNT signal so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked. You should consult the help pages of your browser to learn how to set your preferences so that websites do not track you.
Although this Site is not targeted toward children, we are concerned about the safety and privacy of children who use the Internet. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13, nor do we disclose such information to third parties. However, if a child under the age of 13 provides personally identifiable information to us through the Site, a parent or guardian may inform us at the address for legal notices below, and we will allow the parent or guardian to review the information and will delete it from our database, subject to applicable law.
7. International Use
Our databases are located in the United States, and your data is stored in the United States. If you access this website from outside the United States, you do so at your own risk and are responsible for compliance with local laws, rules and regulations. By sending us your data, you consent to its transfer to and storage within the United States.
