III. Security of Information
The security of your and your company’s personal information is important to us. TCA wants your information to remain secure and strives to provide secure transmission of your information from your computer to our servers (where specified) through industry-standard techniques. Specifically, TCA has implemented a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized use, access, or disclosure. For example, the servers are located in controlled, secured environments and protected from unauthorized access, use, or alteration. Employee access is restricted to those employees that TCA considers need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or to do their jobs. All TCA employees must abide by this Policy and are subject to disciplinary action if a violation of the Policy occurs.
Notwithstanding the above commitments and measures taken to secure your information, you should be aware that there is always some risk involved in transmitting information over the Internet. There is also some risk that third parties may find a way to thwart the security systems and protective mechanisms that TCA has enacted to protect your information. No method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we continually strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security and privacy of any information you transmit to us. Transmission of information to TCA is at your own risk.
