TTARA recognizes the importance of protecting the privacy of all information provided by users of our web sites, registrants for our events, recipients of our e-mail notifications and all services. We created this policy with a fundamental respect for your right to privacy.
INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
TTARA collects information from our website users through online forms. In this section of our Privacy Statement, we describe the type of information we collect and how we use it to provide better services to our members.
If users wish to subscribe to our e-mail newsletters, TaxClips, we ask for contact information (such as name, e-mail address and, occasionally, demographic information). For internal purposes, we use this information to communicate with users and provide requested services. Recipients of our newsletters can unsubscribe by contacting us. None of this information is made public or sold.
Communications with Us
We have features where our customers can submit information to us (such as our feedback forms). Where such submissions include requests for service, support or information, we may forward them to our agents, as needed, to best respond to the specific request. In addition, we may retain e-mails and other information sent to us for our internal administrative purposes, and to help us to serve customers better. None of this information is made public or sold.
We use reasonable precautions to protect our mebers’ personal information and to store it securely. Sensitive information that is transmitted to us online is encrypted and is transmitted to us securely. In addition, access to all of our members’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Finally, the servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
Our web sites contain links to other sites. TTARA is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each web site to which we may link that may collect personally identifiable information.
