Personally Identifiable Information
We do not collect personally identifiable information from you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. In order to register as a member of TAP, and in connection with your use of TAP, we may ask you to provide us, or you may choose to upload, personal data including first and last name, e-mail address, birthdate/age, physical address, and other information ("Personal Information").
In addition, we may also collect non-personally identifiable information, such as IP host address, Web pages viewed, browser type, demographic data and other data, and may aggregate any information collected in a manner which does not identify any individual ("Aggregate Information").
We will never sell your Personal Information to any third party not affiliated with us without your consent, except in connection with the sale or merger of our company or the division responsible for providing you with the services you use.
TAP does rely on other companies in order to carry out various tasks such as technical services for our Web site, marketing, etc. These companies can in certain cases gain access to Personal Information which they need in order to complete an assignment for TAP. All such third parties are instructed that they can only use your data in order to complete the assignment for TAP, and for no other purpose.
Please note that we reserve the right to access and/or disclose Personal Information we gather as required by law or to the extent necessary for us to investigate suspected fraud, harassment, or other violations of any law, rule, or regulation, or the TAP rules or policies.
Aggregate Information may be shared with any number of parties, provided that such information shall not specifically identify any individuals.
The security of your Personal Information is very important to us. However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that all communications between you and us or information stored on TAP or our servers, will be free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers and your use of TAP demonstrates your assumption of this risk. We have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect. Only those personnel who need access to your information in order to perform their duties are authorized to have access to your Personal Information.
Protection for Children
If a user under the age of 13 attempts to register, the account will automatically be flagged as a pending and limited membership account and we will inform the child that parental consent is required to activate a full membership account. Depending on the level of activity the child wishes to obtain, a parent's consent is required by accepting our “Notice to Parents” e-mail. A more detailed description of the level of activities is presented in the “Notice to Parents” e-mail that parents receive from us. Until this level of verifiable parental consent is obtained, the child will only have access to certain features of the site and have limited access to TAP.
TAP uses both technical filters and moderators who supervise what happens on TAP in order to offer a nice and safe environment. The moderators also answer members' reports of unpleasant and unsuitable behavior but we still urge all parents to be actively involved in following their children's activity on the Internet. However, we cannot block all conversations and materials containing objectionable content on TAP.
Other Web Sites
As a convenience to you, we provide links to third-party Web sites from within TAP. Some sites include: The iTunes Music Store, Amazon.com, CafePress.com, and others. TAP accepts no liability on the part of, nor makes any endorsement of these third party Web sites or their services. Likewise, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these third-party sites.
Communications with us
By providing your e-mail address to us, you expressly consent to receive e-mails from us. We may use e-mail to communicate with you, to send information that you have requested, or to send information about other products or services developed or provided by us, provided that, we will not give your e-mail address to another party to promote their products or services directly to you without your prior consent.
Changes to Policy; Opt-Out Process
We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions from this policy at any time. However, if at any time in the future we plan to use Personal Information in a way that differs from this policy, we will post such changes here and provide you the opportunity to opt-out of such differing uses. Your continued use of TAP following the posting of any changes to this policy means you accept such changes.
