Why and When We Collect Personal Information
Sometimes, it is necessary to collect data in order to fulfill a visitor’s request for a service or correspondence. This information, such as name, mailing address, email address, type of request or additional information, is collected and stored by Touchpoint to fulfill your request. Your personal information is never given to any other company for that company’s independent use. Touchpoint may employ third-parties to perform services or functions on our behalf. These companies may require access to personal information in order to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Visitors to Touchpoint’s website provide personally identifying information only when using one or more of the following services:
• Contact forms
• Resume submission
• Requests for additional information such as annual reports or other brochures
• Any other request or communication with the website
How We Collect Personal Information
Like many websites, Touchpoint’s website uses “cookie” technology. When you first connect to our site, the cookie identifies your browser with a unique, random number. Cookies help us determine past users from new users and unique users, and to understand which parts of our websites are the most popular, where our visitors are going and how long they spend there. Your browser has options to accept, reject, or provide you with notice when a cookie is sent. A cookie may exist for up to 12 months.
In some of our communications, we use a “click-through URL.” When you click one of these URLs, you pass through our web server before arriving at the website that is your destination.
When you visit a page of our website that contains a plug-in, a direct connection is established between your browser and the respective servers. These social media tools receive information regarding your visit to our site by tracking your IP address. If you click on the social media buttons while logged into your respective social media account, you may link the contents of our pages to your respective profile. This allows the social media channel to allocate your visit to our sites with your user account. Once you visit a page with the social media icon, a direct link to the server of the respective social media network is established. Web content is transmitted from the social media network to your browser. The social network may be able to retrieve data independent of whether you interact with the button or not. If you are logged on to a social media network, the network can assign your visit to the website to your user account. If you do not wish to provide social media channels with data retrieved from your visit to our website, log out from the social media network before visiting our site.
Touchpoint is not responsible for the data collected by social media networks through their buttons. The data use policies of the social media networks provide information on the purpose and extent of the data that they collect, how this data is processed and used, the rights available to you and the settings that you can use to protect your privacy.
Please read the privacy policies of these social media channels carefully prior to visiting our website.
