Personal Information Collected via Technology
As you use this website, certain information may also be collected passively, including your Internet protocol address, browser type, and operating system. We may also store a small text file called a “Cookie” on your computer to store certain information about you and your activities on the website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them). If you register for a service provided by us, we may include web beacons with the content and ads that we deliver to you as a part of that service, which we use to collect information regarding your interaction with such content and ads.
Personal Information from Other Sources
We may receive Personal Information about you from other third party sources. We may associate this information with the other Personal Information we have collected about you.
Collecting Information Helps Us Serve You Better
TerraCom Direct may use your Personal Information for a variety of purposes, such as:
We may create Anonymous Information records from Personal Information by excluding Contact Information (which makes the information personally identifiable to you). We reserve the right to use and disclose Anonymous Information at our discretion.
Disclosing Your Personal Information to Third Parties
It is our policy not to share Personal Information outside of TerraCom Direct. However, there are instances where we are reasonably required to share your information with a third party to assist us in providing services or products or for other legitimate business purposes provided that disclosure is made on a confidential basis. Such third parties include:
We will use reasonable efforts, using contractual or other arrangements, to ensure that third parties use your Personal Information in a manner that is consistent with this policy. Should you not wish us to disclose your Personal Information to these third parties, depending on the situation, we may be unable to process your application or transaction, communicate with you about services that may be of interest to you, or provide other benefits.
As well, there are special circumstances where we may disclose your Personal Information without your consent or knowledge. These situations include where information is forwarded to a collection agency for the collection of past due bills, where it would be reasonably in the best interest of an individual but where consent cannot be obtained in a timely manner; where the life, health or security of an individual is threatened or otherwise at risk; where the purpose is related to the detection or prevention of fraud or for law enforcement; where disclosure is to our legal counsel; or as may otherwise be required by law.
Third Party Content and Ads
If you register for a service provided by us, we may enable certain third parties to deliver content and ads on the Site. These third parties may collect (via tracking technologies like cookies or web beacons) and use Anonymous Information regarding your interaction with the content or ads that they deliver and with which you interact.
Law Enforcement Compliance
If you have registered for a service provided by us, we may be required by law, or by law enforcement officers acting under the color of law, to record some or all of your communications on or through that service. We may, and you hereby authorize us to, disclose your Personal Information (including your Account Information) and your communications through that service, if required by law or by law enforcement officers acting under the color of law, or if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to: (a) comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us; or (b) to protect or defend the rights, property, or safety of TerraCom Direct, you, other users, or third parties (especially in emergency situations).
Your Choices Regarding Your Personal Information
We offer you choices regarding the collection, use, and sharing of your Personal Information.

You may request deletion of your Account or Personal Information by us, but please note that we may be required (by law or otherwise) to keep this information and not delete it (or to keep this information for a certain time, in which case we will comply with your deletion request, only after we have fulfilled such requirements). When we delete Personal Information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in our archives.
We do not intentionally gather Personal Information from people who are under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, do not submit any Personal Information on this website.
Our Commitment to Maintaining Your Privacy
We take all necessary precautions to safeguard the privacy of your Personal Information, whether it is stored electronically or in paper format. Your information is maintained in secure facilities, protected from unauthorized access, and retained only as long as is reasonably required. Electronic files are backed up for redundancy and password protected to ensure access only by authorized employees.
Although we cannot take responsibility for any theft, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, loss, alteration or destruction of data by a third party, we take reasonable precautions to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.
