GENERAL PRIVACY PRINCIPLES
Personal information is the information that relates to you, that identifies you as a customer or potential customer of TWI and that allows TWI to provide products, services and information to you directly. TWI asks for your personal information so that it can understand your needs, determine if TWI’s products and services meet your needs, inform you about its products and services that it believes may be of interest to you, or comply with the law. Of course, you may choose not to provide TWI with personal information. However, this choice may not enable TWI to provide you with the product, service or information you requested or that could be offered to you.
Your knowledge and consent are required for the collection, use, or disclosure of your personal information.
TWI only collects the information that it needs in order to deliver products, services and information to you.
Limiting Use, Disclosure and Retention
Your personal information is kept as accurately and completely as is necessary for the purposes for which it is to be used. You have the right to up date, modify, amend or correct errors in your personal information by contacting TWI.
TWI will make its complete policies and practices relating to the management of your personal information readily available to you.
Upon request in writing, either by e-mail or letter, you will be informed of the existence, use or disclosure of your personal information and you will be given access to that information. TWI will assist any customer who informs us that they need assistance in preparing a request concerning personal information. You may also challenge, in writing either by e-mail or letter, the accuracy and completeness of the information and have it amended as appropriate, or request that TWI delete or correct any personal information contained in your file.
On occasion, TWI’s websites are connected by “hyperlinks” to other companies’ websites. Please note that TWI is not responsible in any way for the privacy practices of other websites and suggests that you review the privacy policies of those other companies' websites before using them.
