Payment processing

TMS uses a third-party payment processor, Stripe, to process credit/debit card payments. Credit card details are securely transferred directly to Stripe for payment processing and are not stored by TMS. Stripe uses and processes personal information in accordance with their own privacy policy: https://stripe.com/us/privacy.

Cookies & Tracking

The TMS website may use cookies to store your information, retain shopping cart information, process payments via Stripe, and compile aggregate site traffic data. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.

TMS uses Clicky to log and analyze website traffic. This is done using a “Unique ID” tracking cookie used for the legitimate purpose of identifying unique visitors. TMS may also record your IP address for security and fraud prevention and your username to help analyze visitor behavior. Additional information is available in Clicky’s own privacy policy: http://clicky.com/terms/privacy.

Do Not Track Disclosures

The TMS website honors Do Not Track signals from browsers with a Do Not Track mechanism in place and does not allow third-party behavioral tracking.

Children’s personal information

TMS does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 nor does TMS market to children.

Security

TMS maintains administrative, technical, and physical measures, including industry-standard encryption, to protect user information. Personal information is accessible by a limited number of persons with special access rights to this information. However, no website or data transmission system can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Therefore, users are also responsible for taking the appropriate steps to protect their personal information.


Third-party disclosures

Certain trusted third parties provide website development, hosting, maintenance, and other support services for TMS. These parties may have access to your personal information while providing these services. The information available to these parties is typically restricted to what is reasonably necessary for their purposes. TMS also requires these third parties to keep personal information confidential and implement reasonable security measures while accessing this data.

Newsletters, membership notices, event announcements, and product marketing emails are sent to subscribers through Constant Contact. TMS may share your name, email address, company, city and state with Constant Contact for this purpose. Additional information is available in Constant Contact’s own privacy policy: https://www.constantcontact.com/legal/privacy-statement.

Third-party links

TMS may occasionally provide links to third-party products and services. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. Therefore, TMS has no responsibility for the content and activities of these linked sites.
