Privacy Statement

TUCU is committed to protecting the privacy of our clients. We do not share, rent, sell or distribute, in any way, the contact or personal information of our customers.

Your privacy is important to us.

We have developed the following privacy policy, which outlines our business practices and how we use information we collect from website visitors and clients. Our privacy policy is part of our terms and conditions for using our website and / or conducting trade with us.  By visiting our website, or choosing to do business with us, you accept and agree to these terms and conditions.

Information Collected Online And Online Advertising

When accessing our website, TUCU will learn certain information about you during your visit. Similar to other commercial websites, our website utilizes a standard technology called ‘cookies’ (see explanation below) and server logs to collect information about how our site is used. Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our site, and the websites visited just before and just after our own, as well as your IP address, but not your e-mail address or other personally identifying information. The information we collect is used to improve the content of our web pages.

Cookies

Like most websites today, we use cookies. Cookies are snippets of code which track your session on our website. The code is sent from the web server to your computer.  If you are using one of the common internet web browsers, you can set up your browser to either let you know when you receive a cookie or to deny cookie access to your computer.  Cookies used by TUCU do not contain personally identifying information, do not give us access to anything on your device. We only use “session” cookies that expire with each visit (unlike “permanent” cookies that can track visitors across multiple visits, websites, and time).

Third Party Cookies

When visiting our site, your browser may receive longer-term “permanent” cookies from Google, a third party. This may happen because some of our web pages host video content stored on YouTube, and also because our site offers the Google Custom Search function. Consequently, Google may track your online activities across other websites. We have attempted to limit the privacy impacts of third party Google cookies on our site.

You do not have to accept any cookies to access or search our website. However, there may be minimal loss of functionality if you have disabled or deleted all cookies. Please consult your browser settings (and browser plugins) which allow you to configure whether and how you receive cookies. For additional information and guidance, the following consumer website explains how to delete and control the cookies that are stored on your computer.

Internet Advertising Via Google Remarketing

With respect to Advertising Servers, we do not partner with or have special relationships with any ad server companies.

We use Google Remarketing. This means we have a small piece of code on our website that tracks your IP address, similar to cookies outlined above, for the purpose of showing you our internet advertisements on other websites. As mentioned, you may block cookies from your computer, or, you may opt out of Google’s cookies altogether by visiting Google’s Ad Preferences Manager at https://www.google.com/ads/preferences/ or the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.

You can also opt out of cookies from third party vendors by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative’s opt-out page located at http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.

Our website may use Google’s Dynamic Ad Serving feature, which uses the Teracent cookie. You can opt-out of the Teracent cookie at the Teracent opt-out page located at http://www.teracent.com/about-us/opt-out.

Your use of this website without opting out means that you understand and agree to the above.
