Most websites, including our website, use “Cookies” – which are electronic files that websites place on a visitor’s computer to store information that makes each visit to the site more efficient. We use both “session” and “persistent” cookies on our website. A session cookie stores information about you only while you are visiting our website, then is deleted when you leave our website. Persistent cookies store information about you, your preferences, and information about other websites you visit, and it remains on your computer or device after you leave our website. To remove cookies, you may configure your browser to clear all cookies, or configure it to reject cookies whenever you visit a new website. Please consult your browser’s user guide for specific instructions on removing cookies.
“Beacons” are small graphic files with a unique identifier that are used to track a web or mobile site user’s online movements. Unlike cookies, beacons are embedded on websites, not downloaded on your computer or device. We use beacons to better manage content on our website.
DOES TPI COLLECT PAYMENT CARD INFORMATION THROUGH ITS WEBSITE?
DOES TPI TRACK MY ACTIVITY ACROSS OTHER WEBSITES?
When you visit our website, we automatically collect the name of the website you visited from (called the “referring page”) and the name of the website you chose to visit immediately after ours (called the “exit page”), and information about other websites you have recently visited. Please note that because there is no consistent industry understanding of how to respond to “Do Not Track” signals, we do not alter our data collection and usage practices when we detect such a signal from your browser. When our website detects a Do Not Track signal from your browser, it will still collect referring and exit page information and other information when you visit our website.
CAN I CHOOSE TO STOP RECEIVING MARKETING MESSAGES FROM TPI OR CHANGE MY PERSONAL INFORMATION?
We may send you newsletters and other messages, including marketing emails and other communication about our services, and to alert you to relevant advertisements and other opportunities related to our website and services.

If you unsubscribe, we may still collect and use non-personal information regarding your use of our website for non-interest based advertising purposes.
You can delete, change, or update your Personal information at any time by contacting us at email@example.com. We may require you to provide certain information to verify that it is you making the request.

WHAT IF I LIVE IN CALIFORNIA?
California law permits users who are California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we have disclosed their personal information (if any) for their direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, as well as the type of personal information disclosed to those parties. If you wish to opt out of disclosing personal information to third parties, such requests may be made to email@example.com. Under California law (and as a result of your ability to opt out as set forth in this Policy), we are not required to maintain or disclose a list of third parties that receive your personal information for marketing purposes.
Under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), California consumers have the following rights, which can be exercised directly or in certain cases, through an authorized agent:
Right to Know. California customers have the right to request information about the categories and sources of personal information we collect, our purposes for collecting the information, and the types of third parties that receive that information. Details about our data collection, use and third-party disclosures can be found in this Policy. In addition, you have the right to request a copy of your personal information. You may exercise this right once per 12-month period by submitting a request to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Right to Delete. California customers have the right to request that we delete some or all of the personal information that we have about you, subject to certain exceptions (i.e. to complete transactions, honor opt-outs, prevent fraud, spam, and other abuse, comply with our legal obligations, cooperate with law enforcement, and to exercise and defend our rights). You may exercise your right to delete by contacting us at email@example.com.
Right to Opt Out of Sale of Personal information. California customers have the right to opt out of the sale of your personal information, and to request information about whether we have sold your personal information in the past 12 months. We do not sell personal information, and we do not plan to do so. Should such change, we will notify you and provide an ability to opt out as required.
Non-Discrimination. We won’t discriminate against you because you exercise any rights herein.
To exercise the foregoing rights, we must be able to verify your identity as the owner of the personal information. In general, we verify identity by confirming that you are the owner of the email address associated with the personal information. An authorized agent submitting a request on your behalf must also have access to the email address associated with the personal information, along with sufficient evidence that you have authorized that person to submit the request on your behalf.

If you decide to visit our website, or share your Personal information with TPI, you are agreeing to be governed by the laws of the U.S., and agree to the transfer of your information to the U.S.
From time to time, it may be necessary to transfer your Personal information to recipients who are located in countries outside the United States.

The data protection and other laws of these countries may not be as comprehensive as those in the United States - in these instances we will take steps to ensure that a similar level of protection is given to your personal information. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Policy, and the collection of information hereunder, shall comply with all relevant data protection provisions, including, without limitation, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
If you are located outside the United States you note that we are processing your personal information in order to provide the services, or otherwise pursue our legitimate business interests. Our legitimate business interests are balanced against your rights and freedoms and we will not process your personal information if your rights and freedoms outweigh our legitimate business interests.
Additionally, if you are located outside the United States, we may also process your Personal information when we are required or permitted to by law; to comply with government inspection, audits, and other valid requests from government or other public authorities; to respond to legal process such as subpoenas; or as necessary for us to protect our interests or otherwise pursue our legal rights and remedies (for instance, when necessary to prevent or detect fraud, attacks against our website, or other criminal and tortious activities), defend litigation, and manage complaints or claims.
As required by the GDPR, we require that all processors and sub-processors of the data we collect fully comply with the obligations of the GDPR and do not infringe on your privacy rights in any way. In particular, you have the following rights:
Right to Access. You have the right to see any Personal information we have collected about you as well as the purpose of our collection and processing of it and whether we plan on sharing such personal information with anyone.
Right to Correct. You have the right to complete and/or correct any inaccurate Personal information in our possession. In order to complete and/correct personal information, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Right to Erase. You have the right to have your personal information erased from our data stores without undue delay. Additionally, we will erase personal information without undue delay if:
• The personal information is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected;
• You withdraw consent and there is no other legitimate basis for the processing;
• You object to the processing and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing;
• The personal information has been unlawfully processed; or
• The personal information must be erased for compliance with any of our legal obligations.
• Right to Restrict. You have the right to restrict processing of your Personal information. You may notify us regarding restricting your Personal information by contacting us at email@example.com.
• Right to Port Data. You have the right to request your Personal information be ported over to another controller. However, in certain situations, we may not have the technical means to port the information automatically. If this is the case, we will recommend that you delete your Personal information instead.
• Right to Object. You have the right to object to the collection or processing of your Personal information at any time if you believe your Personal information was collected or processed unlawfully. Our team will work with you to investigate the claim and take appropriate action. While the claims are under investigation, your Personal information may be deleted from our website. You may resubmit your Personal information at any time.
WHAT IF I FOLLOW A LINK TO A THIRD-PARTY WEBSITE?
Our website and our social media posts may contain links to third-party websites and/or third party social media accounts. Those websites and accounts are governed by their own privacy and data use practices and policies. We do not have control over the privacy practices of the advertisers or other third parties operating these websites and accounts, and we have no control over how these third parties collect or use the information you chose to share with them.
HOW DOES TPI PROTECT MY INFORMATION?
We take the security of your personal information very seriously. We use reasonable administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to secure the personal information you share with us. Despite these safeguards and our additional efforts to secure your information, we cannot promise or guarantee that hackers, cybercriminals, or other unauthorized third-parties will not be able to defeat our security, and improperly collect, access, steal, or modify your personal information. Furthermore, even though appropriate measures are used to prevent unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that any personal identification information collected or received by us will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Policy, and do not accept liability for any unintentional disclosure.

Each time you use our website the current version of this Policy will apply. This Policy may be amended from time to time for any reason, and we will post a new Policy on this page as indicated by the “last updated” date below. You should consult this Policy regularly for any changes.
Notwithstanding the foregoing arbitration provisions, in no event shall TPI be precluded or delayed from seeking and obtaining temporary, preliminary and/or permanent injunctive relief, without the posting of any bond or proving of actual damages, against infringement (or threatened infringement) or other violation (or threatened violation) of its claimed intellectual property rights, or other relief that it deems reasonably necessary to defend or enforce its rights or this Policy, in any court(s) of competent jurisdiction, and through your use of the website, you hereby consent to, and hereby waive any objection regarding, such jurisdiction and venue. This is without prejudice to your right to launch a claim with the data protection supervisory authority in the country in which you live where you think we have infringed data protection laws.
