This Statement of Privacy applies to the TNS Europe Web site and governs data collection and usage. By using the TNS Europe website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

COLLECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

Total Network Solutions collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. Total Network Solutions also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your Post Code/ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favourites.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by Total Network Solutions. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by Total Network Solutions for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the TNS Europe Web site.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through Total Network Solutions public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: Total Network Solutions does not read any of your private online communications.

Total Network Solutions encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from TNS Europe so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. Total Network Solutions is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the Total Network Solutions family of Web sites.

USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

Total Network Solutions collects and uses your personal information to operate the TNS Europe Web site and deliver the services you have requested. Total Network Solutions also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Total Network Solutions and its affiliates. Total Network Solutions may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

Total Network Solutions does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Active Communication Company Limited may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Total Network Solutions may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Total Network Solutions, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

Total Network Solutions does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
Total Network Solutions keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within Total Network Solutions, in order to determine what Total Network Solutions services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customised content and advertising within Total Network Solutions to customers whose behaviour indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
Total Network Solutions Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Total Network Solutions or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Total Network Solutions and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Total Network Solutions, or the public.

USE OF COOKIES

The TNS Europe Web site use “cookies” to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise TNS Europe pages, or register with Total Network Solutions site or services, a cookie helps Total Network Solutions to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same TNS Europe Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Total Network Solutions features that you customised.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the TNS Europe services or Web sites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information

Total Network Solutions secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. Total Network Solutions secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Changes to this Statement

Total Network Solutions will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. Total Network Solutions encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Total Network Solutions is protecting your information.
