What Information is Collected by TDIG

How we collect and store information depends on the websites you visit, activities in which you participate, and the Services you use. You can use some of our Services without providing any information, although several categories of information are automatically collected from you when you use the Services, as described below.

Information You Provide:

When expressing interest, registering, or subscribing to TDIG services, you will be asked to provide certain information including, for example, a valid e-mail address, first name, last name, title, job type, company name, work telephone number, other contact information and certain business-related geographic and other demographic information. Our site creates a unique contact ID when the contact info is new to our database.

When you register for an event or subscribe to a service, the Site creates and stores a unique transaction ID. We use this ID to identify your transaction in our database.

Automatically Collected Information:

TDIG may automatically collect certain information about computers or other devices that are used to access our Services and sites, including mobile devices, through commonly used information-gathering tools, the use of cookies, Internet server logs, tracking pixels (also called web beacons) (“Website Navigational Information”). We may use third-party analytics services, such as Google Analytics, to assist in collecting and analyzing information including but not limited to:

  1. your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, and other information about your browser types, browser language, operating system, the state, or country from which you accessed the Services; and
  2. information related to the ways in which you interact with the Services and TDIG website(s), such as referring and exit pages and URLs, platform type, the number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on pages, the date and time you used the Services, error logs, and other similar information.

Aggregate or De-Identified Data

We may aggregate and de-identify information collected by the Services or other means so that the information is not intended to identify you. This Policy does not restrict our use or disclosure of aggregated and/or de-identified information.

Cookies

By using our Services with your browser set to accept cookies, you are consenting to our use of cookies in the manner described herein. 

A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website, that enables us to recognize your computer/device, store your preferences and settings, and enhance your user experience by delivering content specific to your interests, perform searches and analytics, and assist with security administrative functions. 

An Internet server log is a file where website activity is stored. Server logs are used to track usage and provide security. 

A tracking pixel, which is also referred to as a web beacon or a clear GIF, is an electronic tag with a unique identifier that is embedded on web pages, in online advertisements, and/or emails. These pixels are designed to provide usage information, such as advertising impressions or clicks, measure the popularity of the Services and associated advertising, and access user cookies.

We may use third parties to assist us in advertising, tracking aggregated and/or de-identified site usage statistics, and providing content-sharing services to support the Services. These third parties may also use cookies and similar technologies to collect similar information about your use of the Services. For instance, the cookies may reflect de-identified data linked to or derived from data you voluntarily have submitted to us, e.g., a hashed version of your email address, which we may share with service providers, solely in a non-human readable form. We do not control these third-party technologies, and those parties’ privacy policies govern their use. For more information about targeting and advertising cookies and how you can opt-out, you can visit http://youronlinechoices.eu/ or allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies. Please note that to the extent advertising technology is integrated into the Services, you may still receive advertisements even if you opt-out of tailored advertising. In that case, the ads will not be tailored to your interests.

Information From Others

We may obtain information about you from third parties, such as marketers, partners, researchers, and others. If you access the Services through a third-party connection or log-in, you authorize TDIG to collect, store, and use, in accordance with this Policy, any and all information available to TDIG through the third-party interface. Should you choose to voluntarily disclose information through the Services, such as on message boards, third parties can view publicly and collect that information without our knowledge and such disclosure may result in unsolicited messages from other individuals or third parties.

Users from Outside the United States

The Services are governed by United States law and applicable state law. If you are using the Services from outside the United States, your information may be accessed from, transferred to, stored, and processed in our facilities, in various countries around the globe, including the United States.
