How We Secure the Information We Collect From or About You
TNR has technical and organizational security measures in place, including firewalls, to protect the information under our control from accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure, or access. Such measures do not guarantee prevention of loss, misuse, or alteration of information, however, so while we strive to protect your information, TNR cannot warrant the security of information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. We comply with generally accepted industry standards in collecting and processing credit card information. However, TNR does not guarantee the safety of credit card information over the internet.
Users Outside the United States
If you use our Services outside the United States, you understand that we collect, process, and store your information in the United States. The laws in the United States regarding personal information may be different from the laws of your jurisdiction. Any such transfers will comply with safeguards as required by relevant law.
Your California Privacy Rights
Residents of California have the right to request information regarding companies to whom the company has disclosed certain categories of personal information during the preceding year for the companies’ direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or write to us at 1 Union Square West, 6th Floor, New York, NY 10003.
The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides California residents with rights to receive certain disclosures regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of “personal information,” as well as rights to know or access, correct, delete, and limit disclosure of personal information. The CCPA defines “personal information” as “information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household.” Certain information we collect may be exempt from the CCPA because it is considered public information (i.e., it is made available by a government entity) or covered by a specific federal privacy law, such as the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
You have the right to be free from discrimination based on your exercise of your CCPA rights. To the extent that we collect personal information that is subject to the CCPA, that information, our practices, and your rights are described below.
Right to Information Regarding Categories of Personal Information Collected, Sold, Shared, and Disclosed
You have the right to receive notice of the categories of personal information we collect, and the purposes for which we use personal information. You also have the right to know about the sources of the personal information; whether we disclose, sell, or share that information to service providers or third parties, respectively; and the criteria we use to determine the retention period for such information. The categories we use in the table below to describe personal information are those enumerated in the CCPA. The table also summarizes the categories of “sensitive” personal information that we collect, the purposes for which such information is used, and whether we sell or share such information.
Entities to whom we disclose information for business purposes are service providers, which are companies that we engage to conduct activities on our behalf. Service providers are restricted from using personal information for any purpose that is not related to our engagement. The categories of service providers with whom we share information and the services they provide are described above in the section titled “How We Share Your Information.”
Entities to whom we “sell” or with whom we “share” information are third parties. Under the CCPA, a business “sells” personal information when it discloses it to a company for monetary or other benefit. A company may be considered a third party either because the purpose for its sharing of personal information is not for an enumerated business purpose under California law, or because its contract does not restrict it from using personal information for other purposes. A business “shares” personal information when it discloses personal information to a company for purposes of cross-context behavioral advertising.
We collect this personal information from the sources described in the Information We Collect section above for the purposes described in the How We Use Your Information section above.
|Information Type||Collected||Disclosed to?||Sold to?|
|Personal identifiers||Service providers||Advertising partners|
|Payment information||Service providers||Not sold|
|Commercial information||Service providers||Not sold|
|Geolocation information||Service providers||Advertising partners|
|Internet or electronic network activity information||Service providers||Advertising partners|
|Audio, electronic, visual, thermal, olfactory, or similar information||Service providers||Not sold|
|Inferences drawn about you||Service providers||Advertising partners|
We do not collect: your medical or health information; information about your physiological, biological, or behavioral characteristics; or your precise geolocation (e.g., GPS coordinates).
Personal information may be disclosed in additional, more limited circumstances, as described in How We Share Your Information above.
We determine the retention period for each of the categories of personal information listed above based on (1) the length of time we need to retain the information to achieve the business or commercial purpose for which it was obtained, (2) any legal or regulatory requirements applicable to such information, (3) internal operational needs, and (4) any need for the information based on any actual or anticipated investigation or litigation.
Right to Know, Request Access, Correction, or Deletion
You have the right to request access to personal information collected about you and information regarding the source of that information, the purposes for which we collect it, and the third parties and service providers with whom we sell, share, or disclose it. You also have the right to request in certain circumstances that we correct personal information that we have collected about you and to delete personal information that we have collected directly from you. You may submit such a request as described below. To protect our customers’ personal information, we will verify your identity before we act on your request.
Right to Opt Out of Sale or Sharing of Personal Information to Third Parties
You have the right to opt out of any sale or sharing of your personal information to third parties. To exercise this right, please visit our “Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information” page, email us at email@example.com, or call us at 1-800-827-1289. Please note that your right to opt out does not apply to our sharing of personal information with service providers, who are parties we engage to perform a function on our behalf and are contractually obligated to use the personal information only for that function.
Right to Limit the Use of Your Sensitive Personal Information
You have the right to limit our use of your sensitive personal information if we use such information to infer characteristics about you. Your right to limit our use of such information is subject to exception.
How to Submit a Request
You may submit a request to exercise your rights through one of two means:
- By filling out a Consumer Data Request Form available here.
- By calling us at 1-800-827-1289.
If you are a resident of California, Colorado, or Connecticut, you may, under certain circumstances, authorize another individual or a business, called an authorized agent, to make requests on your behalf. (Authorized agents in California must be registered with the California Secretary of State.)
We may have a reason under the law why we do not have to comply with your request, or why we may comply with it in a more limited way than you anticipated. If we do, we will explain that to you in our response.
In order to process your request to access, correct, limit the use of, or delete personal information, we will verify your request by asking you to provide personal identifiers, such as your name, contact address, email address, and account number (if available), which we can match against information we may have collected from you previously or to confirm your request using the email or telephone account stated in the request.
We will not use personal information we collect in connection with verifying or responding to your request for any purpose other than responding to your request.

Information for Individuals Located in the EEA, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom
We process personal data on the following legal bases: (1) with your consent; (2) as necessary to perform our agreement to provide Services; and (3) as necessary for our legitimate interests in providing our Services where those interests do not override your fundamental rights and freedom related to data privacy.

Users who reside in the European Economic Area, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom have the right to lodge a complaint about our data-collection and processing actions with the supervisory authority concerned. Contact details for data protection authorities are available here.
If you are a resident of the EEA, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom, you are entitled to certain rights. In order to verify your identity, we may require you to provide us with personal information prior to accessing any records containing information about you. These rights include the ability to do the following:
- Request from us access to personal information held about you or request transmission of your data to a third party.
- Request that we rectify inaccurate or incomplete information we hold about you.
- Request that we erase data that is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected, when you withdraw consent and no other legal basis for processing exists, or when you believe your fundamental rights to data privacy and protection outweigh our legitimate interest in continuing the processing.
- Request that we restrict our processing if there is a dispute about the accuracy of the data; if the processing is unlawful; if the processing is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected but is needed by you for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims; or if your request to object to processing is pending evaluation.
- Object to processing of your personal data based on our legitimate interests or for direct marketing (including profiling).

To submit a request to exercise your rights, please contact us at email@example.com. We may have a reason under the law why we do not have to respond to your request, or why we respond to it in a more limited way than you anticipated. If we do, we will explain that to you in our response.
