Taggart only collects Personal Information, such as your name, address, telephone number, gender, birth date, e-mail address, social security number, credit or debit card numbers, that you voluntarily provide to us. You are not required to provide Taggart with any such information, but if you choose not to you may be unable to use or access certain Services or portions of the Site.
Taggart may ask you to provide certain Personal Information when you purchase Services from Taggart. Taggart also may ask you to provide Personal Information in other limited circumstances specified at the time the information is gathered.
In addition to voluntarily given Personal Information, Taggart collects Site activity information (through the use of "cookies"), IP addresses, demographic information and information supplied by third parties.
Taggart's Web server automatically creates log files for each Site User to allow Taggart to monitor Site use and to make our Site more useful to our visitors. The access logs do not contain Personal Information, but contain information relating to the details of a User's Site visit, including the IP address of the visitor, the date and time of use, the path taken through the Site, files reviewed and downloaded, and errors encountered.
Taggart may collect non-Personal Information that is not capable of specifically identifying an individual such as zip codes, ages and income levels. Taggart uses such information to improve the Site and Services and better target its Users' needs and preferences.
Third Party Information
Taggart also uses "cookies." A cookie is a piece of data that can be written to a User's hard drive when the User visits our Site. These cookies are activity recordation files that store information on a User's Site visits and preferences. Taggart does not, for example, scan a User's hard drive for other information not located in the cookie.
Taggart tracks a User's activities by cookies in order to offer features that would not be possible without them and to recall information regarding the User and his or her preferences during subsequent Site visits. You may disable cookies in your browser's preferences, although you may no longer be able to access certain Site features, including interactive features. Disabling cookies may hinder or prevent Site functionality with your computer.
Other companies' uses of cookies are covered by their own privacy policies. Taggart is not liable or otherwise responsible for third party cookies or damage caused thereby.
USE OF INFORMATION
Taggart uses collected Personal Information to perform Services, customize and optimize the Site, and for other internal purposes, such as sending information to the User about the User's account, Taggart's Services, and advertisements for products and services that may be of interest to the User (these and any other communications using Personal Information are "Notices").
Except as otherwise expressly stated herein, Taggart will use and disclose your information for its own internal business purposes, which include responding to User e-mails, fulfillment of product and service orders, sending communications to Users, including marketing and promotional communications, and other general Taggart operations.
Personal Information collected by Taggart is not provided to unaffiliated third parties, except when the User specifically consents to such distribution or when Taggart discloses information to third parties as provided under "Exceptions" below.
This policy covers only information that is collected specifically and solely by Taggart. Any information that you disclose when participating in newsgroups or other public internet forums becomes public. Moreover, by participating in newsgroups, your e-mail address may become available to any third parties accessing our Web site and as a result, you may receive unsolicited e-mail from such third parties.
If you do not want your Personal Information to be collected or used for any of these purposes, you may "opt out" by following the process described below. Please note that opting out may limit or terminate your access to portions of the Site, the Services, or other functions provided by Taggart.
