The Data We Collect and How We Use Your Information
Our website provides a convenient way for you to learn about important TMA opportunities and events. We collect information about our online visitors both directly from our visitors and indirectly from other companies that provide data to us. We use this information to communicate with our members and visitors, process their transactions, provide information about our programs and events, and request donations. We maintain the information you provide, along with a record of your transactions, securely. We do not rent or sell it to other organizations.
When you use our website, telephone, use the mail, or visit in person to make a financial contribution, become a TMA member, register for a class or special event, sign up to volunteer, apply for a job, or for other similar transactions, we may ask you for your name, address, phone number(s), email address, and other information relevant to the transaction.
We will ask you for standard credit card information necessary to process and service your transaction when you make a financial donation, become a TMA member, pay for an event, or make a purchase. Your credit card information will be temporarily stored on a secure server and used only for processing the online, telephone, or in-person transaction. Credit card information is destroyed as soon as the transaction is completed.
TMA regularly sends email to members, patrons, and visitors to the website. Email recipients may opt-out at any time by following the “unsubscribe” instructions included in the email message.
From time to time, TMA may invite you to participate in surveys posted on the TMA website or sent to you via email. Your participation in these surveys is on a voluntary and anonymous basis, unless otherwise indicated. We may ask about your background, occupation, or other questions. We would use this information to help us better understand our audience and to better meet the needs of our visitors. Information that may be collected in these surveys is not sold, rented, or shared with third parties for marketing purposes.
