Accessing, Updating, And Retaining Information
You may request that we modify, hide, or delete personal information that you have provided to us by emailing us at email@example.com. If you have a “myTA” account, certain information can be modified, hidden, updated, or removed directly by you through your “myTA” profile.
We retain personal information only as long as it is necessary to fulfill the purpose for which that information was collected, for the time period required by law, or as long as is necessary for our legitimate business purposes.
We maintain administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect your personal information. When we collect or transmit sensitive information, such as a credit or debit card number, we use industry standard methods to protect that information. Credit and debit card information is used solely for the purpose of completing a specific transaction and such information is not retained in our database. We also protect account information by storing it on a secure portion of our site that is only accessible by authorized individuals.
Unfortunately, no website, database, or system is completely secure. While Tabor strives to protect your information, we cannot guarantee security. You are also responsible for taking reasonable steps to protect your personal information against unauthorized disclosure or misuse.
