1. What Information Do We Gather?

When you use our Website, we collect or transfer only the information and personal data you have agreed to provide to us that is necessary to identify your needs and to provide you with better service. Depending on the jurisdiction, information about you may be called “personal information,” “personally identifiable information,” or just “personal data.” In this Privacy Policy, we call it both personal data and personal information in an effort to match the jurisdictional preference.

Through your use of the Website, we are requesting only your email address at this time.

Your email will only be collected if you voluntarily provide it during the user registration process. Third-party analytics vendors may also track information such as the domain name and the name of the web page from which you entered our Website, and how much time you spend on each of our pages. These vendors may collect information that is combined with other web visitors' information, such as how many times visitors click on each web page and the methods by which our Website was found.

Third-party analytics vendors (such as Google Analytics) may collect IP addresses and website usage information from you when you visit our Website via the use of "cookies." An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you are using your browser on the Internet. A cookie is a small file that is stored on the hard drive of your computer ready for future access when you return to our Website. Vendors use cookies to deliver web content specific to you and to keep track of your online order activity. Cookies cannot pass viruses, harm your computer, or pass on private information such as an email address without the computer user's intervention. Cookies contain session identification numbers that allow our systems to recall previous sessions for authentication efforts and assemble information from our gathered data. You can configure your computer's browser to alert you when the Website attempts to send you a cookie and allow you to accept or refuse the cookie. Further information on how to prevent cookies from being stored on your device can be found on under the “manage cookies” section. Alternatively, you can access further information by going to the help menu within your internet browser. To opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites visit

Cookies are used to give you the best experience on our Website. If you continue without changing your cookie settings, we assume that you consent to our use of cookies on this device. You can change your cookie settings at any time but if you do, you may lose some functionality on our Website.

2. What Do We Do With the Personal Information We Collect?

You may be asked to provide your email address to access our Website and use our services. We use your email address to create a Company ID which you can then use to access the Website. Users will be tracked using the provided Company ID. No other personal data is collected, requested, or shared.

We will not use your personal data to send commercial or marketing messages to you unless we have a legal basis for doing so, such as your consent or a contract with us for which, in either case, you will have the ability to opt out of by sending an email to

We do not collect personal data when you browse the Website and request pages from our servers unless you voluntarily and knowingly provide such information to us. This means that we will not know your name, your email address, or any other personal data just because you browse the Website.

When you request a page from our Website, the servers from our third-party analytics providers may log the information provided in the HTTP request header including the IP number, the time of the request, the URL of your request and other information that is provided in the HTTP header. These vendors may collect the HTTP request header information to make our Website function correctly. This information also may be used to personalize content to you, better understand how visitors such as yourself use our Website and how we can better modify the Website, its contents, and functionality to meet your needs.

3. Who Can Use the Information We Collect and How?

If we do provide your personal data to third parties or allow third parties to collect personal data from you on our behalf, it is because we have contracted with that third party to provide some part of the information or service that you have requested and have received their contractual assurances that they will protect your personal data in accordance with all applicable laws. Other than those who act on our behalf, and except as explained in this Policy, the personal data you provide us will not be transferred to unrelated third parties unless we have a legal basis to do so. However, please note that personal data provided to us may be subject to disclosure pursuant to judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants, or orders. We will only provide this information after approximately two weeks following receipt of a valid subpoena or other legal process in a civil case.

4. How Do We Protect the Personal Information We Collect?

Security of Personal Data

We are committed to protecting the security of your personal data. Depending on the circumstances, we may hold your information in hard copy and/or electronic form. For each storage medium, we use technologies and procedures to protect personal data. We review our strategies and update our procedures as necessary to meet our business needs, changes in technology, and regulatory requirements. We take our security obligations seriously and so should you. While we are responsible for maintaining the security of the Website, you must also access and use the Website in a manner that is responsible and secure. In addition, we have implemented a series of policies, procedures, and periodic training to address data protection, confidentiality, and security, and we update and review the appropriateness of these measures on a regular basis.

Storage and Transfer of Personal Data

Personal data collected by TG is stored and processed in the United States. We take steps to ensure that the data we collect under this Privacy Policy is processed in accordance with the law applicable to the jurisdiction where the owner of the personal data is located.

Retention of Personal Data

TG retains personal data only for as long as necessary to provide the services and fulfill the transactions you have requested, or for other business purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes, and enforcing our agreements. We are required by law to keep some types of information for certain periods of time (e.g., statute of limitations). If your personal data is no longer necessary for the legal or business purposes for which it is processed, we will generally destroy or anonymize that information.

5. What Are Your Rights Regarding Your Personal Data?

We respect your right to access and control your personal data. You have choices about the data we collect. When you are asked to provide personal data that is not necessary for the purposes of accessing our Website, you may decline. However, if you choose not to provide data that is necessary to provide a service, you may not have access to certain features on our Website.

Please note that your privacy rights may be specific to the state in which you reside. In the list below, we have identified an individual’s general privacy rights and noted the states where certain privacy rights differ or are absent and have described the difference or omission.

Access to personal data: You have the right to request access to your personal data. In these cases, we will comply, subject to any relevant legal requirements and exemptions, including identity verification procedures. Before providing data to you, we will ask for proof of identity and sufficient information about your interaction with us so that we can locate any relevant data. We may also charge you a fee for providing you with a copy of your data (except where this is not permissible under applicable law).

Correction and deletion: In some jurisdictions, you have the right to correct or amend your personal information if it is inaccurate or requires updating. You may also have the right to request deletion of your personal information. Please note that such a request could be refused because your personal information is required to provide you with the products or services you requested, e.g., to deliver a product or send an invoice to your email address, or because it is required by the applicable law. Note that Iowa (effective Jan. 1, 2025) and Utah (effective December 31, 2023) do not provide individuals with the right to correct.

Opt-Out of certain data processing: In some jurisdictions, you have the right to restrict a business’s ability to process personal information about the consumer. Residents of California have the right to opt out of certain data processing for sensitive data, which is defined below in “Right to Opt-Out”. Residents of Colorado, Connecticut, Utah, and Virginia have the right to opt out of processing for profiling/targeted advertising purposes.

  • Right to Opt-Out: There is a right to opt out of collecting sensitive personal information in California. Under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) sensitive personal information (“SPI”) is defined as personal information that reveals the following: (1) a consumer’s social security, driver’s license, state identification card, or passport number; (2) a consumer’s account log-in, financial account, debit card, or credit card number in combination with any required security or access code, password, or credentials allowing access to an account; (3) a consumer’s precise geolocation; (4) a consumer’s racial or ethnic origin, religious or philosophical beliefs, or union membership; (5) the contents of a consumer’s mail, email, and text messages unless the business is the intended recipient of the communication; (6) a consumer’s genetic data; (7) the processing of biometric information for the purpose of uniquely identifying a consumer; (8) personal information collected and analyzed concerning a consumer’s health.; and (9) personal information collected and analyzed concerning a consumer’s sex life or sexual orientation. SPI that is “publicly available” is not considered sensitive personal information or personal information. TG does not process SPI (as that term is defined under the CCPA) when collecting your account information. Because TG does not collect or process SPI to perform the services reasonably expected by you, California residents would not have the right to limit this use. In addition, TG does not process personal information for profiling or targeted advertising.

Right to Opt-In: Except for California, Iowa, and Utah, current U.S. state privacy laws (Virginia, Colorado, and Connecticut) require organizations to obtain affirmative opt-in consent to collect and use SPI.

Right to Opt-Out of Sales: The California CCPA defines a "sale" as the disclosure of personal information for monetary or other valuable consideration. TG does not share, sell, rent, or trade your personal information with third parties for commercial purposes or for monetary or other gain, and we do not share personal information for cross-context behavioral advertising within the scope of CCPA or sell or share personal information of California residents 16 years of age and younger.
