Automatically Collected Information
Information about your computer hardware and software may be automatically collected by TAC. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the TAC Site.
The TAC Site may use “cookies” to help you personalize 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 personalize TAC pages or register with TAC Site or services, a cookie helps TAC 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 TAC Site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the TAC features that you customized.

Use and Disclosure of Information
The following is a list of categories of Personal Information which may have been collected from consumers or users of our Services within the last twelve (12) months. The categories and examples provided in the chart below are those defined in the CCPA. This does not mean that all examples of that category of Personal Information were in fact collected but reflects our good faith belief to the best of our knowledge that some of that information may have been collected about consumers. We will update this disclosure from time to time as appropriate.
A name, alias, postal address, unique personal identifier, online identifier, Internet Protocol address, email address, account username, screen name, password, Social Security number, driver’s license number, passport number, or other similar identifiers.

Some personal information included in this category may overlap with other categories.

The CCPA broadly defines the term “sale” to mean:
“Selling, renting, releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring, or otherwise communicating orally, in writing, or by electronic or other means, a consumer’s personal information by the business to a third party for valuable consideration; or (B) sharing orally, in writing, or by electronic or other means, a consumer’s personal information with a third party, whether for valuable consideration or for no consideration, for the third party’s commercial purposes.”
The CCPA characterizes some sharing and transfer of personal information as a “sale,” even when the sharing or transfer is not done in exchange for monetary consideration. TAC does not believe that any of the sharing or transfers described in this policy constitute sales under California law.
