TARGIT Collaborative Group Privacy Policy

TARGIT Collaborative Group™ (“TCG”) respects the privacy of its members, event registrants and other visitors to its website (“Users”) and has adopted this privacy policy in order to highlight the importance of privacy. This policy, which discloses ways in which TCG gathers and distributes information, may change at any time.  Any changes will be posted on this website within this policy.

Collected Information

It is TCG’s general policy to collect only such personally identifiable information as our Users knowingly provide.  Except as provided under “Usage Tracking” below, TCG does not collect personally identifiable information from those merely browsing the TCG websites. Most information collected on the websites is used to better enable TCG to serve its Users. We may also contact you regarding a website problem or other service-related issues.  See also “Social Media and Widgets” below, indicating their collection of information from Users.

Those joining TCG as members, registering for TCG events and other services and activities on the TCG websites provide personally identifiable information as requested for those actions. The categories of personally identifiable information collected may include names, titles, passwords, professional license and certification information, biographical information, event registration information, companies, addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers, e-mail addresses and possibly other identifiers that permit the physical or online contacting of a specific individual.  Individuals are requested to provide similar information when they sign up by offline methods.

TCG does not market to children and does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children on the TCG websites.

Use of Information

TCG uses the data collected to provide and improve services to Users.  Registrant contact information may be made available to other participants.  This may include the compilation of such information in hard copy which may be made available to participants and, in limited circumstances, to others.  Member information will be made available to the other members unless the member otherwise requests.

TCG members, subscribers and event registrants will receive electronic and printed communications, including, where applicable, regular publications and information regarding TCG member and other events, and other information related to the provision of member and other services. Member communications are delivered as part of your TCG membership.  Members visiting the TCG websites also have access to the TCG online Membership Directory, which includes the names of all members and other member profile information, except to the extent that the member otherwise requests.

 

TCG also provides information collected, as indicated above, to third parties with which TCG does business.  TCG, as part of its meetings and symposia, provides registrants’ information, including name, firm, address, telephone number and e-mail address, to vendors such as hotels, hotel reservations systems, the meeting or symposium registration system vendor and to exhibitor and sponsors for social invitations and marketing use.

Usage Tracking

We track information on Users in terms of what pages they visit and the different interaction/ touch points Users encounter when visiting our websites.  While we do not typically store this information in a fashion that enables us to automatically identify individual Users, we do store IP addresses, session times and pages visited which could be used to piece together data on an individual User.

This data may also be used by TCG, in the aggregate, to identify appropriate User offerings.

TCG does not track its Users over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to “do not track” signals.

TCG does not authorize other parties to collect personally identifiable information about our Users’ online activities over time and across different websites when they use TCG’s websites or service.

Purchases and Fulfillment

When you place an order or register for a TCG event or product/subscription or apply for membership, we may request additional information such as cardholder information, credit card number, expiration date and security code. This information is used for confirmation and billing purposes and to service the order. Also, when you register for an event, we may request additional information about your hotel, meal and other travel preferences. This information is used only for the specific event.

TCG may use third-party service providers such as credit card processing companies, shipping companies, mailing houses and event coordinators together with other service providers as required to satisfy customer requests.

When you register for a TCG event, we may provide necessary information to hotels and to facilities hosting events. These parties are allowed to use that personal information only to provide services relevant to the event.

Updating Personal Information

If you are a member or other User from whom we have collected personally identifiable information, and your information changes, you may update it by e-mailing info@targitcollaborative.org.

 

 

Use of “Cookies”

“Cookies” are pieces of data that a website may send for storage by your web browser on your computer’s hard drive.  The TCG websites do not set cookies.  See “Social Media and Widgets” below regarding their possible use of cookies.

Social Media and Widgets 

TCG websites include social media features, such as the Facebook Like and Twitter buttons, and may include widgets, such as the Share this button or interactive mini-programs that may run on TCG websites. These features may collect your IP address and information as to which page you are visiting on the TCG website, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on a TCG website. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policies of the parties providing them.

Security

TCG uses commercially reasonable measures in an attempt to provide its Users with a secure online experience. To do this, we use a variety of security measures to maintain the safety and confidentiality of personal information about you. All User registration information is contained behind a firewall and is accessible only by TCG’s management company employees and by TCG contractors.  The database is protected behind a firewall.

Links

TCG’s websites contain links to websites not within the TCG domain. TCG is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such sites. We encourage our Users to be aware of when they leave our site and to read the privacy policies of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy policy applies solely to information collected by the TCG websites.

Electronic Discussion Groups

The TCG website does not offer electronic discussion groups.  This privacy policy only applies to the TCG websites.

Notification of Policy Changes; Effective Date

We will notify members and other Users about material changes to our privacy policy by posting the privacy policy as changed on our websites. Thus, Users of the websites may want to periodically review the policy for changes.

The effective date of the current privacy policy is January 20, 2021.
