This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) describes the manner in which TAFI (“TAFI”, “we,” or

“us”) and our website at www.maketafi.com (our “Site”), as well as all related

websites, networks, desktop or mobile clients and applications, and other services

provided by us and on which a link to this Policy is displayed (collectively, together

with the Site, our “Service”) collect, use, and disclose information about you. This

Policy is incorporated into and is subject to the TAFI End User License Agreement.

By using the Service, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your

information as described in this Policy.

Information We Collect on the Service

User-provided Information:

When you use the Service, we may collect or you may provide information about

you and we may link this information with other information about you. You may

provide us with information in various ways on the Service. For example, you

provide us with information when you register for an account, use the Service, make

a purchase on the Service, or send us customer service-related requests.

Cookies and Automatically Collected Information:

When you use the Service, we may send one or more cookies – small text files

containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your device. We may use both

session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close

your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be

used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Service. Please review your web

browser “Help" file to learn the proper way to modify your cookie settings. Please

note that if you delete, or choose not to accept, cookies from the Service, you may

not be able to utilize the features of the Service to their fullest potential. We may

use third party cookies on our Service as well. For instance, we use Google Analytics

to collect and process certain analytics data. To learn more about how Google

Analytics uses your information and what choices you have, please visit

www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. TAFI does not process or respond to web

browsers’ “do not track” signals or other similar transmissions that indicate a

request to disable online tracking of users who use our Service.

We may also automatically record certain information from your device by using

various types of technology, including “clear gifs" or “web beacons.” This

automatically collected information may include your IP address or other device

address or ID, web browser and/or device type, the web pages or sites that you visit

just before or just after you use the Service, the pages or other content you view or

otherwise interact with on the Service, and the dates and times that you visit,

access, or use the Service. We also may use these technologies to collect

information regarding your interaction with email messages, such as whether you

opened, clicked on, or forwarded a message. This information is gathered from all

users, and may be connected with other information about you.

Payment Information:

If you choose to access or use parts of the Service that require payments or fees,

we may require you to provide financial information to us for the purpose of

processing those payments. We may provide your payment information to third

party payment processors who process transactions on our behalf. We may also

collect and retain information relating to the transactions you conduct.

Location Information:

We may use your IP address to obtain general information about the physical

location from which you are connecting to the Internet.

Third Party Web Beacons and Third Party Buttons:

We may display third-party content on the Service. Third-party content may use

cookies, web beacons, or other mechanisms for obtaining data in connection with

your viewing of the third party content on the Service. Additionally, we may

implement third party buttons (such as Facebook “like” or “share” buttons) that

may function as web beacons even when you do not interact with the button.

Information collected through third-party web beacons and buttons is collected

directly by these third parties, not by TAFI. Information collected by a third party in

this manner is subject to that third party’s own data collection, use, and disclosure

policies. Please note that privacy choices you have made with regards to the

Service will not carry over to third party sites or services (and vice-versa).

Information from Other Sources:

We may obtain information from third parties and sources other than the Service,

such as our partners, email platforms, and advertising platforms.

format) in a variety of ways in providing the Service and operating our business,

including the following:

We use the information that we collect on the Service to operate, maintain, enhance

and provide the Service, to provide services and information that you request, to

When We Disclose Information. Except as described in this Policy, we will not

disclose information about you that we collect on the Service to third parties without

your consent. We may disclose information to third parties if you consent to us

doing so, as well as in the following circumstances:

We work with third party service providers who provide website, application

These third parties may have access to or process information about you as part of

providing those services for us. We require our service providers to agree to

maintain the confidentiality of such information.

faith, is appropriate or necessary to (i) take precautions against liability, (ii) protect

property, or safety of others.

Information about our users may be disclosed and otherwise transferred to an

acquirer, successor, or assignee as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing,

sale of assets, or similar transaction, or in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy,

or receivership in which information is transferred to one or more third parties as

one of our business assets.

We may make certain aggregate or otherwise non-personal or de-identified

information available to third parties for various purposes, including (i) compliance

with various reporting obligations; (ii) for business or marketing purposes; or (iii) to

assist such parties in understanding our users’ interests, habits, and usage patterns
