Privacy Policy

Team4Tech ("Team4Tech," "we," "us," or "our") has prepared this privacy policy statement ("Privacy Policy") to describe our collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information through the online community web site (the "Community").

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into the Terms of Use Agreement. We will collect, use, and disclose your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy or as described on the page at which you submit your information.

Information Collected

For you to access certain services that we offer through the Community, we require you to become a member of our Community ("Member(s)") by providing us with your name, your email address, and your zip code or postal code ("Contact Information"). At your discretion, you may provide us with personal information in addition to your basic Contact Information.

If you post information on any of our discussion groups, message boards, or forums, such information you provide may be available to other Members of the Community and other web site visitors.

We automatically track and collect the following information when you visit our Community: your IP address, domain server, type of computer, and type of web browser. This information does not personally identify you but is helpful for us to improve your experience in our Community. We also use "cookies" to save your password so you do not have to reenter it each time you visit our Community.

Newsletters

We may use your Contact Information to send you information about our Community, to send you information about our partners, or to contact you when necessary.

Choice Regarding Disclosure of Contact Information

You may choose not to provide us with any Contact Information. In such an event, you can still access and use some portions of the Community; however, you will not be able to access and use portions of the Community that require your Contact Information.

Surveys and Polls

We may request information from you via online surveys or polls. Your participation in these surveys or polls is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to disclose additional information. Information requested may include demographic information (such as zip code or postal code, language, or age level), but no information that can identify any individual person will be collected. We will use survey information to monitor or improve the use and satisfaction of the Team4Tech web site.

Send to a Friend

If a Member elects to use our "Send to a friend" function, we ask them for the friend's email address. We will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site. We store this information temporarily for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.

Confidentiality and Security of Contact Information

Except as described in this Privacy Policy, we will not share your Contact Information with third parties, unless such disclosure is necessary (as determined in our sole discretion) to: (a) comply with a court order or other legal process; (b) protect the rights or property of Team4Tech, or any third party; or (c) enforce the Terms of Use.

We use reasonable measures to maintain the security of your Contact Information. However, no company, organization, or online community, including Team4Tech, can fully eliminate security risks associated with personal information.

Accessing and Updating Contact Information

To ensure that all of your Contact Information is correct and up-to-date, you may visit your personal profile in the Member Directory. Through your personal profile you may review and update your Contact Information that we have already collected or choose whether or not you wish us to send you information about our Community or promotional material from some of our partners.

Other Disclosures

We may provide your personal information to third party service providers who work on behalf of or with Team4Tech to provide some of the services and features of the Team4Tech community and to help us communicate with the Members of our community. However, these service providers do not have any independent right to share this information (expect pursuant to a legal requirement such as a subpoena or warrant).

Although we currently do not have a parent company, any subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under a common control (collectively, "Affiliates"), we may in the future. We may share some or all of your personal information with these Affiliates, in which case we will require our Affiliates to honor this Privacy Policy.

If the assets related to the Team4Tech site are acquired by another company, that company will possess the personal information collected by us and it will assume the rights and obligations regarding your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy.

Other Limits to Your Privacy

Our Community contains links to other third party web sites ("Linked Web Sites"). We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of the Linked Web Sites. We also make chat groups, forums, message boards, and news groups available to you, but please understand that any information you disclose in these areas becomes public information. We have no control over its use and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose any personal information.

Information you disclose through the Communication Services (as that term is defined in the Terms of Use) may be available to other Members and available on third party web sites. Accordingly, such information is not subject to this Privacy Policy and we recommend that you always use caution when giving out any personally identifiable information about yourself.

Updates and Changes to Privacy Policy

We reserve the right, at any time and without notice, to add to, change, update, or modify this Privacy Policy, by posting such change, update, or modification on the Community. Any such change, update, or modification will be effective immediately upon posting.
