Please note that this Privacy Policy applies only to information collected from you by Telfer via the Site and does not apply to information obtained or disclosed through offline correspondence or personal contacts with Telfer representatives.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to such third party websites, and Telfer is not responsible for the content of such third party websites or the privacy practices of such third parties. Therefore, we encourage you to request and review the privacy policies of any third parties upon disclosing your information to such parties or visiting such third party websites.

This Privacy Policy is effective as of August 1, 2011 (the “Effective Date”).

INFORMATION COLLECTED AND HOW WE USE IT
You always remain in control of the information you provide to Telfer. We collect two types of information about visitors: personally identifiable information (such as name, address, telephone number, email address, etc.), which you have voluntarily submitted to us, and aggregate information (such as information about how many visitors log on to our sites, the pages they access, etc.).

In general, you can visit the Site without telling us who you are or revealing personal information about yourself. We collect, maintain and use personal information you have voluntarily submitted to contact you, including via email, to respond to your comments or requests for information, or to contact you if needed in the course of providing information about our services that you may have requested. In addition, we may use personal information to provide you the most helpful and targeted products and services to meet your needs and respond to your inquiries. To better meet your needs, we may supplement the information we collect with data obtained from third parties for the same purposes.

DATA SHARING AND TRANSFER.
Telfer will not trade, sell or share your personal information for use by any third party without your consent, unless required by law or as disclosed to you when the information is collected. Telfer reserves the right to disclose your personally identifiable information based on the good faith belief that such action is necessary or appropriate to: (a) protect and defend the rights or property of Telfer, or (b) act in urgent circumstances to protect the safety or security of the public or of users of Telfer’s services and/or the Site.

Your personal information will generally be stored in the Telfer databases, which are located in the United States. Our policy is to ensure that your information is always granted the same level of protection no matter where it is stored. In the event that Telfer is involved in a transaction such as a merger, stock purchase or sale, or sale of substantially all of Telfer’s assets, your personal information may be transferred to the other party in such transaction.

USE OF YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
Upon our collection of your personally identifiable information, Telfer may use such personally identifiable information internally, separately or in combination with preexisting information, for the following purposes:
• To provide any requested services;
• To troubleshoot problems with the Site, or any services, as requested;
• To customize your experience or homepage on the Site;
• To enforce our Terms of Use; or
• To contact you with more information about Telfer and its services.

COOKIES AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES
Cookies help us in many ways to make your visit to the Site more enjoyable and meaningful to you. Cookies are text information files that your web browser places on your computer when you visit a website. Telfer may use such “cookie” technology to obtain non-personal information from you as an online visitor.

Telfer may also use so-called “web beacons” to access the information contained in its cookies within the Site.

CHILDREN’S PRIVACY
We take utmost care of children’s privacy, and take into consideration appropriate national and international laws and regulations on children’s privacy.

SECURITY
We use commercially reasonable efforts to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially reasonable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
