Privacy Policy

TSIA understands that your privacy is important to you and we are committed to respecting your privacy and protecting your information. This privacy policy applies to all TSIA websites that link to the policy. It covers the collection and use of information from any device used to access or connect to TSIA branded websites and any third party systems used to provide services. 

 

Personal Information

We collect personal information when you make your information known, such as by registering, authenticating, making purchases, or interacting with TSIA. If you do not make yourself known to TSIA, your use of our content and services is generally anonymous. 

 

Your information may be supplemented with additional information from third party vendors such as publicly available information, information about your company, and other information which we may append or match to your record.  

 

TSIA may also receive or collect certain technical information when you interact with our web sites and/or consume or purchase our Services. This may include: your browser or operating system, your manner of connecting to the Internet (including the type of device you are using) and the name of your Internet service provider or wireless carrier; your Internet protocol (IP) address; and data relating to malfunctions or problems occurring when you use TSIA websites. Additionally, we may collect information about other software on your device for the limited purpose of protecting your security or improving your online experience.

 

How we use your Information

Your information is used to operate and improve our programs and services, fulfill your requests and communicate with you, conduct research, and personalize the content and advertisements provided to you.  

 

Information Sharing

TSIA does not sell or rent your personal information to third parties.

 

From time to time, TSIA may partner with other companies to jointly promote products or services. If you specifically express interest in a jointly-promoted product or service, TSIA may share data collected in connection with your expression of interest with our joint promotion partner(s). TSIA limits the business partners’ use of the information we collect, and their use of the information will be in accordance with their own privacy policies. If you do not wish for your information to be shared in this manner, you may opt not to purchase or specifically express interest in a jointly offered product or service.

 

TSIA does not share data about attendees with business partners unless: (1) you specifically opt in to such sharing via an event registration form; or (2) you attend a Company event and allow TSIA or any of its designees to scan your attendee badge. If you do not wish for your information to be shared in this manner, you may choose not to opt in via event registration forms and elect not to have your badge scanned at TSIA events.  If you choose to share your information with business partners in the manners described above, your information will be subject to the business partners’ respective privacy statements.

 

In addition, TSIA partners with third parties from time to time for the purpose of delivering products or services that are part of TSIA’s membership offering. These third parties have their own privacy policies, which govern such products and services. In certain of those cases, it is necessary to convey names and email addresses of users to the third party in order to provide TSIA’s membership offering to members. When these third parties receive such personal information, they commit to govern its use and disclosure with privacy practices that are at least as restrictive as this Privacy Policy. Under no circumstances in those cases are third parties permitted to send marketing communications directly to our members with the personal information provided by TSIA, or to use the personal information they receive for any purpose other than the delivery of TSIA products or services, unless, in the use of the product or service, the member elects to enter into a direct business relationship with the third party, opts in to receive marketing communications from the third party, or accepts terms and conditions for the use of the third party’s product or service.

 

Internet Advertising

TSIA does not deliver third party online advertisements on our websites but we advertise our programs and services on others' websites. Please familiarize yourself with those website operators' or network advertisers' privacy policies to understand their practices relating to advertising, including what type of information they may collect about your Internet usage. TSIA does not provide any information relating to your usage of any TSIA websites to website operators or network advertisers. Some advertising networks we may use may be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI). Individuals may opt-out of targeted advertising delivered by NAI member ad networks by visiting www.networkadvertising.org.
