provided by us and on which a link to this Policy is displayed (collectively, together

Policy is incorporated into and is subject to the TAFI End User License Agreement.
By using the Service, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your

Cookies and Automatically Collected Information:
When you use the Service, we may send one or more cookies – small text files
containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your device. We may use both
session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close
your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be
used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Service. Please review your web
browser “Help" file to learn the proper way to modify your cookie settings. Please
note that if you delete, or choose not to accept, cookies from the Service, you may
not be able to utilize the features of the Service to their fullest potential. We may
use third party cookies on our Service as well. For instance, we use Google Analytics
to collect and process certain analytics data. To learn more about how Google
Analytics uses your information and what choices you have, please visit
www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. TAFI does not process or respond to web
browsers’ “do not track” signals or other similar transmissions that indicate a
request to disable online tracking of users who use our Service.
We may also automatically record certain information from your device by using
various types of technology, including “clear gifs" or “web beacons.” This
automatically collected information may include your IP address or other device
address or ID, web browser and/or device type, the web pages or sites that you visit
just before or just after you use the Service, the pages or other content you view or
otherwise interact with on the Service, and the dates and times that you visit,
access, or use the Service. We also may use these technologies to collect
information regarding your interaction with email messages, such as whether you
opened, clicked on, or forwarded a message. This information is gathered from all
users, and may be connected with other information about you.
If you choose to access or use parts of the Service that require payments or fees,
we may require you to provide financial information to us for the purpose of
processing those payments. We may provide your payment information to third
party payment processors who process transactions on our behalf. We may also
collect and retain information relating to the transactions you conduct.
We may use your IP address to obtain general information about the physical
location from which you are connecting to the Internet.
Third Party Web Beacons and Third Party Buttons:
We may display third-party content on the Service. Third-party content may use
cookies, web beacons, or other mechanisms for obtaining data in connection with
your viewing of the third party content on the Service. Additionally, we may
implement third party buttons (such as Facebook “like” or “share” buttons) that
may function as web beacons even when you do not interact with the button.
Information collected through third-party web beacons and buttons is collected
directly by these third parties, not by TAFI. Information collected by a third party in
this manner is subject to that third party’s own data collection, use, and disclosure
policies. Please note that privacy choices you have made with regards to the
Service will not carry over to third party sites or services (and vice-versa).
Information from Other Sources:
We may obtain information from third parties and sources other than the Service,
such as our partners, email platforms, and advertising platforms.
