PRIVACY POLICY


TYS VARIETY, INC. ("TYS VARIETY") demonstrates its commitment to our customers' privacy by providing this statement. We will do everything in our power to ensure your right to privacy. We are committed to developing long lasting relationships that are built on trust. TYS VARIETY will never violate that trust.

TYS VARIETY policies and procedures for handling customer information have been created with the understanding that Internet technologies are still evolving and that Internet business methods are continuing to evolve to meet the needs and opportunities of the changing technologies. As a result, TYS VARIETY's policies and procedures are subject to change.

In the course of serving its customers, TYS VARIETY acquires, stores and transmits customer communications and information that customers may regard as private or sensitive. Some of this information - such as the customer's name, address, telephone number, and credit card data - is provided to TYS VARIETY by its customers in order to establish service. Other information - such as the customer's account status, choice of services, and customer logs - is created and maintained by TYS VARIETY in the normal course of providing service.

TYS VARIETY also uses cookies, which are small pieces of information that a web site can store in a designated file on a user's computer for various reasons. For example, TYS VARIETY uses cookies on the landing pages of products sold online which record the customer information that is required on the order form. This information is then forwarded to an internal sales tracking database within TYS VARIETY. In addition, TYS VARIETY may store customers' electronic mail and other communications as a necessary incident to the transmission and delivery of those communications.

 

Data Security

TYS VARIETY will protect the confidentiality of its customers' information, account information and personal communications to the fullest extent possible and consistent with the law and the legitimate interests of TYS VARIETY, its partners, its employees and other customers of TYS VARIETY's services. To protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of information that is collected from customers, TYS VARIETY has appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures in place.

How is customer information used?
TYS VARIETY may share customer information with selected partners, for example, to provide customers with information about products which might be of interest to the customer or to enable the customer to take advantage of special partner programs. TYS VARIETY may also use customer information to provide its customers with system information or information about new or upgraded products.

We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our behalf. In addition, TYS VARIETY shares its web site usage information about visitors to TYS VARIETY's web sites with third-party advertising companies for the purpose of targeting TYS VARIETY's Internet banner advertisements on TYS VARIETY's sites and other sites. For this purpose, TYS VARIETY and such companies may employ cookies and action tags (also known as single pixel gifs or web beacons) to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and action tags is completely anonymous. If you would like more information about this practice and your choices, click here.

Disclosure of customer information and communications

TYS VARIETY will not otherwise disclose its customers' personal and account information unless TYS VARIETY has reason to believe that disclosing such information is legal and necessary to identify, make contact with, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing harm or interfering with the rights or property of TYS VARIETY, TYS VARIETY's customers, or others, or where TYS VARIETY has a good faith belief that the law requires such disclosure.

TYS VARIETY disclaims any intention to censor, edit or engage in ongoing review or surveillance of communications stored on or transmitted through its facilities by customers or others. TYS VARIETY will, however, review, delete or block access to communications that may harm TYS VARIETY, its customers or third parties.
