Many of the features of the Site are available to you without you providing personally identifiable information. Personally identifiable information generally includes information that could be used to determine your identity, such as your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, and birth date (Personally Identifiable Information). The following are certain situations in which TTMF may collect Personally Identifiable Information from you:
TTMF collects Personally Identifiable Information from you if you register online for one of TTMF’s newsletters and when you enter TTMF’s contests. When you register online with TTMF, TTMF asks for Personally Identifiable Information like your name, address, phone numbers, e-mail address, birth date, gender, occupation, industry, personal interests and other demographic information.
TTMF may collect Personally Identifiable Information from you if you choose to fill out any forms, profiles, or surveys on the Site.
If you send TTMF personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, or if other users or third parties send TTMF correspondence about your activities or postings on the Site, TTMF may choose to collect such information into a file specific to you.
TTMF uses your Personally Identifiable Information as follows:
Unless you are entering one of TTMF’s contests, TTMF will not disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to any external party unless authorised by the user or unless required to do so by law. The following describes some of the ways that your Personally Identifiable Information may be disclosed in the normal scope of business:
TTMF may aggregate Personally Identifiable Information and disclose such information in a non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers and other third parties for their marketing and promotional purposes. For example, TTMF may aggregate Personally Identifiable Information and disclose it to network advertisers in a non-personally identifiable manner as set forth in the section entitled “Network Advertisers,” set forth below. TTMF does not disclose your information in a personally identifiable manner to such third party advertisers without your consent.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, TTMF reserves the right (and you authorise TTMF) to share or disclose your Personally Identifiable Information when TTMF determines, in its sole discretion, that the disclosure of your Personally Identifiable Information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against you if:
In addition, TTMF shall not be liable for any disclosure of your Personally Identifiable Information where any third party has unlawfully intercepted or accessed transmissions or private communications.
TTMF may use third-party advertising companies for marketing, advertising and promotional purposes, as well as to serve advertisements to you. Using third-party advertising companies helps us and third-party advertisers better determine which advertisements or content to serve to you. For example, the third-party advertisers may use information regarding your visits to the Site and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services, that third party advertisers believe will be of interest to you.
The types of information that may be collected by third-party advertising companies include the following:

The Site sends only verified, double-opt-in e-mail newsletters, specifically requested by TTMF subscribers.

“Cookies” are alphanumeric identifiers in the form of text files that are inserted and stored by your Web browser on your computer’s hard drive. TTMF, its external service providers, internal service providers, and third-party advertising companies, may set and access cookies on your computer to track and store preferential information about you. TTMF, and its external service providers, internal service providers, and third-party advertising companies gather anonymous information about you through cookie technology on an aggregate level only.

Please note that most Internet browsers will allow you to stop cookies from being stored on your computer and to delete cookies stored on your computer.
“Web beacons”, also called single-pixels (1×1) or clear GIFs, are electronic images that allow a Web site to access cookies and help track marketing campaigns and general usage patterns of visitors to those Web sites. Web beacons can recognise certain types of information, such as cookie numbers, time and date of a page view and a description of the page where the Web beacon is placed. No Personally Identifiable Information about you is shared with third parties through the use of Web beacons.

In the unlikely event that an unauthorised third party compromises TTMF security measures, TTMF will not be responsible for any damages directly or indirectly caused by an unauthorised third party’s ability to view, use or disseminate such information.
