We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting any personal information you share with us through this website. This privacy policy statement (“Privacy Policy”) explains how we collect personal information about you through this website and how this information is then used or disclosed. In short, we gather no personal information about you specifically. We only gather information on organizations, whose information exists in the public domain. This Privacy Policy does not apply to our affiliates and/or external links to third-party website that do not display or link to this Privacy Policy or that have their own Privacy Policy. More importantly, this privacy policy does not pertain to the information we may gather about you from other resources, such as emails, trade show introductions, phone conversations, referrals or other interpersonal interactions. This Privacy Policy is not intended to and does not create any contractual or other legal right in or on behalf of any party.

The information we gather about you – the website visitor – is to better provide access to relevant content, regarding our products and services. We do this to deliver better customer service, to direct our business, and to perform those activities as described below. For current TFD Group members and affiliates, to access certain features and non-public areas of our website, you will be asked to login with a login name and password. If you fail to have the credentials to login to these non-public areas, it is because we cannot confirm your identity. For TFD Group employees and affiliates who have access to non-public areas of the website, personal information such as login, passwords and/or related credentials, will be created and maintained by our IT department.

What information we do gather, helps us keep you up-to-date with our latest news, offers and product releases.

This Privacy Policy will hopefully remove any concerns you may have about doing business with TFD Group, and making visiting our website an informative and safe experience. This Privacy Policy will be updated to not only stay compliant with the Online Privacy Protection Act of 2003 - California Business and Professions Code sections 22575-22579, but also to address individual concerns of our employees, customers and website visitors.
