Purpose of Notice

TMC is committed to protecting your privacy according to applicable laws, regulations, and best practices.  Different countries have different privacy laws and requirements; some, including the US, may provide less legal protection for Personal Information (PI), while some will provide more legal protection. This Notice is to inform you about the purposes for which TMC collects and uses PI, the steps TMC takes to ensure the integrity and security of such data, the choices and means TMC offers your company to limit the use and disclosure of your PI, and how to contact TMC about your PI. PI means any information about, or relating to, an identified or identifiable employee of your company.

Where permitted by law, TMC collects PI directly from your company; from its subsidiaries and affiliates; or from third parties, including but not limited to, insurance agents, vendors, and government agencies.

Where permitted by law, TMC may send PI to its subsidiaries and affiliates as well as third parties including but not limited to, service providers, external parties, law enforcement and government authorities or TMC’s successors in the event TMC sells or transfers all or a portion of its business assets. In each of these circumstances, TMC will take all reasonable steps to ensure any transfer is done within the confines of any applicable law and in a secure manner, is necessary to perform the services required, and is executed in a manner consistent with this Notice.

Data Integrity and Data Security

TMC will take all reasonable steps to protect your PI, keep your PI reliable for its intended use, accurate, current, and complete, as well as in identifiable form only for as long as necessary for the purposes for which it was collected.
