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.
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
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.
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).
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.
