The Tapco Group Privacy Policy

BY PROVIDING PERSONAL INFORMATION TO US ON THIS WEB SITE, YOU CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF THAT INFORMATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PRIVACY POLICY.

The Tapco Group and all of its affiliates (“Tapco,” “us,” or “we”) respects the privacy concerns of visitors to the Tapco website. This Privacy Policy applies only to the information we collect on this website.

Information We Collect Automatically

If you merely browse through the Tapco website or download information, our servers will automatically collect certain information from you. This information includes the: (a) name of the domain and host from which you access the internet; (b) Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using; (c) browser software you use and your operating system; (d) date and time you access the website; and (e) Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to this website.

We will use information that we automatically collect to manage and improve our website to make it as useful as possible for visitors like you. None of the information we automatically collect is tied to personal information you may provide to us (see below).

Information You Choose to Provide to Us

Tapco gathers and retains personal information about you only when voluntarily submitted by you. For example, if you choose to complete and submit one of the forms located on our “Request Literature” page or “Contact Us” page, we will retain the data you submit to respond to your inquiry and consider your request. After we have responded to your inquiry and/or considered your request, the information you submitted will be retained for our records. If we change the manner we use or retain personal information you provide to us, we will update this Privacy Policy, without any notification to you.

Personal Information as an Asset of Tapco

The personal information you provide to us is an asset of Tapco. If Tapco or a substantial part of our business is sold or otherwise transferred to a third party, your personal information may be transferred as well. We will NOT notify you of any transfer of your personal information in connection with such a transaction.

Disclosure of Personal Information to Third Parties

Tapco reserves the right to disclose the personal information you provide to us WITHOUT your consent, including but not limited to: (a) as required by law; (b) to our independent contractors who host and maintain our Web site and e-mail services; (c) to our franchisees, if applicable, or distributors, but only to respond to requests by you for information; and (d) to service providers or suppliers if the disclosure will enable that party to perform business, professional or technical support for us.

Cookies

Like most websites, we employ cookies on certain pages of the Website. Cookies make using the Website easier by, among other things, saving your preferences for you. We may also use cookies to deliver content tailored to your interests. Our cookies may enable us to relate your use of the Website to personally identifying information that you previously submitted. If your browser is set to reject cookies, or if your browser notifies you that you are about to receive a cookie and you reject it, then your use of the Website may not be as efficient or as enjoyable as it would be if the cookie were enabled. The information that we collect with cookies allows us to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyse usage of the Website, and to improve and customise our content and other offerings. However, we only disclose information collected with cookies to third parties on an aggregated basis without the use of any information that personally identifies you.

By visiting the Website with your browser set to accept cookies, you indicate that you consent to the cookies, as described in this Privacy Policy. The “Help” function of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-in or visiting the website of its manufacturer.

We may use various franchisees and distributors to conduct our business in certain locations. Some of these franchisees and distributors operate their own websites.
