Your privacy is important to us. Any information you give to TCOG will be held with the utmost care, and will not be used in ways that you have not consented to.
Any and all information collected at this site will be kept strictly confidential within TCOG and will not be sold, reused, rented, loaned, or otherwise disclosed to any external party.
Information Collected on the Website
TCOG does not collect any personal information from users browsing our Website other than through registration, subscription and enquiry forms where the information is given voluntarily. We do analyze our Website logs to collect aggregate data – such as the number of visitors – and use this data to improve the value of the materials available on our Website. This data is used for internal business purposes only.
Our Website logs do not keep sufficient detail for us to be able to identify individuals, and we make no attempt to link them with the individuals that actually browse the site.
We use “cookies” to recognize returning visitors and to track content usage and Website traffic. Where a visitor has not completed a registration, subscription or enquiry form, cookies do not collect personal data. Only when you have registered can a “cookie” tell us the personal information which you have previously left with us. You can set your browser not to accept “cookies” but, if so, there may be areas of our web sites which you cannot view.
Some areas of our Website, particularly those relevant to Partners and Client Support are password protected, and require that you are a licensed user of TCOG-supplied software or have registered as a member of a program (for example, as an TCOG partner). In other select areas, which can include product demonstrations, product trials, newsletters or other offers, we may request that you provide us with particular information before accessing that area.
Use of Web analytics services
This website uses Google Analytics, a Web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

This site contains (affiliate) links to other sites. TCOG and it’s authors are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Websites.
TCOG maintains several e-mail lists to keep interested parties informed about our TCOGXXX events, products, support, and more. We collect this information when individuals voluntarily contribute it by signing up through a form or other means on our Website or providing us with their e-mail address at a trade show, seminar, direct mail response or other event, or when they register as clients. We do not sell, rent, loan, trade, or lease the addresses on our list to anyone.
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control.
When approached by the appropriate legal authorities, information about you, your business or account usage may be disclosed, but only when specifically required
under the laws appropriate to the territory.
