Information Collection and Use
The choice of personally identifiable information you disclose to us is completely at your discretion. It is not mandatory for you to answer any question, but you may have to provide certain information in order to access some areas of our site or to complete transactions initiated by you.
When making a purchase in ARC or posting in to public content areas, you may be required to provide us with your name, email address, and/or other contact information. When making a purchase, you may be required to provide credit card information and addresses for billing. This information is stored in a password-protected area so that we can contact you about order status and provide other customer service activities. You have the option of storing your credit card information for express checkout when making future purchases through ARC.
We employ other companies to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include providing access to third party software and professional services and processing credit card payments. These service providers do not share or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purpose; they are not permitted to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these contracted services.
All financial data are securely managed and safeguarded in accordance with applicable laws and standard practices. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input, during transmission of financial data. We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order or storing your information. It is important that you protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer.
If a user wishes to contribute to public discussion groups within the ARC, we ask for contact information such as name and e-mail address.
When you visit www.tpgarc.com, our web server automatically recognizes and collects only your IP address or domain name. We collect aggregate information on pages you and other visitors access in order to analyze trends, administer the site, track movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
