When contacted by any of these companies or third parties, you should notify them directly of your choices regarding their use and sharing of your information. Tassl is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of third parties. In some cases, you may be required to provide certain information to register or complete a transaction at such third-party site. These third-party websites have separate privacy and data collection practices and Tassl has no responsibility or liability relating to them. We do not endorse, nor are we responsible for the accuracy of, the privacy policies and/or terms and conditions of such websites. These third party entities are independent third parties and are not affiliated with Tassl.

In some cases, Tassl may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions (such as a sale, merger, liquidation, receivership or transfer of all or substantially all of Tassl’s assets), member information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. In the event that Tassl transfers information about you, Tassl will notify you by email or by putting a prominent notice on the Site and the Apps, and you will be afforded an opportunity to close your account before information about you becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

COMMUNITY

You are responsible for the personal information you choose to post in community spaces on Tassl. Tassl reminds its users to use common sense and good judgment when posting in community spaces or sharing your personal information with others on Tassl.

Your posts may remain public even after your Tassl account is closed.
You can follow another Tassl member’s public activity, such as school events, calendar items and alumni activities. If you do not want other alumni app users to be able to contact you through your email address, then you may opt-out through the settings on the Site, but you may not be able to use all of the services available on the Site or Apps. In any event, Tassl will still be able to share or provide your personally identifiable and non-personally identificable information with the schools of which you are an alumni of and alumni groups you have externally opted in to.

SECURITY

All collected information is stored in a technically and physically secure environment. While we use reasonable, industry standard measures to protect personal information online and offline, no data transmission can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we do not ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems. Access to this personal information is strictly limited, and not accessible to the public. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personal information. In compliance with applicable federal and state laws, we will notify you and any applicable regulatory agencies in the event that we learn of an information security breach with respect to your personal information. You will be notified via email in the event of such a breach. Please be advised that notice may be delayed in order to address the needs of law enforcement, determine the scope of network damage, and to engage in remedial measures.
Your Tassl account information is protected by a password. It is important that you protect against unauthorized access of your account and information by choosing your password carefully, and keeping your password and computer secure by signing out after using our services.

DATA RETENTION

Tassl will retain your information only for as long as is necessary or your account is active or as needed to provide you services. If you no longer want Tassl to use your information to provide you services, you may close your account. Tassl will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
You may inform us of any changes or requests in regards to your personal data, and in accordance with our obligations under local data protection law, we may update or delete your personal data accordingly.
