TCEI may collect Personal Information that you supply when you use the Site. Personal Information shall mean any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, such as name, telephone number, email address, identification number, location data or other identity of that natural person.
TCEI may also automatically collect non-personal information from users of the Site, such as the IP address of the computer through which the users access the Site, the physical location of that IP address and the type of web browser being used to access the Site. TCEI may employ cookies, which are small pieces of computer code that enable Web servers to “identify” visitors, each time an Individual initiates a session on TCEI’s Site. TCEI uses this non-personal information to understand users’ needs and most effectively administer the Site and Service in response to those needs.
This Site is directed to and intended for use by adults only. TCEI requires that a user be at least 18 years of age or older to submit personally identifiable information. As such, TCEI does not knowingly collect or distribute any personally identifiable information from minors through the Site.

TCEI will not sell or share users’ personal information with unrelated third parties, partners or affiliates unless the user consents to the disclosure, or except as may be required by law, governmental authority or to cooperate with law enforcement authorities.
TCEI may combine your usage information for the Site with that of other users to determine which areas of the Site are most popular. By collecting and analyzing this data, TCEI can improve the Site. This “aggregate information” does not contain any of your personally identifiable information.
