Some of our web sites may invite you to register and provide information about yourself. We use the information you provide to personalize your online experience and to deliver the content most suited to your needs.
- Site Use Information: It is possible to visit a TMC web site without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Our web servers collect the domain names, not the e-mail addresses, of visitors. This information is aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the sites, pages viewed, and so forth. TMC utilizes this information to measure the use of our sites and to improve the content we offer.
Agents/Service Providers: We use other third parties such as web hosting, web analytics, web security to support our web site operations. These third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for promotional purposes.
Registration Information Provided by You: Personally identifiable information is collected by TMC through:

o The provision of your details to us either online or offline
Among such details may be your name, title, company name, home shipping and billing addresses, phone and fax number, mobile telephone number, e-mail address, and payment details such as credit card information.
We use other third parties such as a credit card processing company to bill you for services. When you sign up for a web-based course, we will share your card holder information (name, address, phone, email, credit card number) as necessary for the third party to provide that service.
These third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for promotional purposes.
We use your personally identifiable information to respond to your requests, provide you with personalized information and resources, as well as information on updates and new services available through TMC’s websites, unless we obtain your permission to use your personal information for other purposes. For example, if you send us an e-mail message requesting information about TMC, we will use your e-mail address and other information you supply to respond to your request. If we intend to use your personal information to inform you about other TMC services, we will notify you and give you an opportunity to decline to receive such communication. If you send us a resume or curriculum vitae (CV) to apply online for a position with TMC, we will use the information provided to match you with available opportunities.
The personal information you provide to us will be retained only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the information was collected or as required by law. We do not share personal information with third parties except as necessary to carry out our business or as required by law or other legal processes, and we never share, sell, rent or trade your personal identifiable information with third parties for their promotional purposes. Furthermore, personal data collected by TMC may be transferred to TMC affiliates where it is necessary to meet the purpose for which you have submitted the information.
