TheMiniSpecialist.com is a multi-dimensional Website. It offers its users an array of services. Because the success of TMS is dependent on building and maintaining goodwill with our customers, we are committed to implementing measures designed to protect the privacy of those using our services. Moreover, we see it as our responsibility to set examples and help establish the standards for privacy on the Internet. During registration, each service asks the user to provide different types and amounts of personal information. We intend through the use of this statement to illustrate, clarify, and reinforce the degree of security and privacy an internet-user should feel when accessing the Website.
Personal Information and Its Use
TMS gathers two types of information about users:
(1) Non-personally identifiable information:
When visitors come to our website, we collect and aggregate information indicating, among other things, which pages were visited, the order in which they were visited, and which hyperlinks were “clicked.” Collecting such information involves the logging of IP addresses, operating system and browser software used by each visitor to the TMS website.
Although such information is not personally identifiable, we can determine from the IP address a visitor’s Internet Service Provider and the geographic location of his or her point of connectivity. The non-personally identifiable information we collect helps us identify the most popular areas of our website and determine the effectiveness of our promotional activities. In addition, we may disclose some of this information to advertisers to inform them of the number of people who have seen and/or clicked through their advertisements.
(2) Personally identifiable information:
In certain areas of the TMS website. during our signup process we will ask a user to provide his/her full name, and contact details. TMS collects this personal information primarily so we can complete and deliver your order to you. We may provide the information provided in the delivery details section with 3rd party couriers and delivery agencies in order to facilitate the delivery of your purchase.
Information Collecting and Access
The information that a user shares with TMS is collected, stored, and handled carefully by TMS . However, TMS may offer some of its services in conjunction with partner companies which may need access to your details to fulfil your order. We will endeavour to make it clear whenever this is the case.
Cookies help us determine the type of content and sites to which you link, the length of time you spend at any particular area of the site, and the services you choose to use. Cookies also tell us which advertising you have seen on our site. Essentially, cookies are your identification cards for the TMS servers, that placed them there. Cookies are only read by the server that placed them, and are unable to execute any code or virus. Cookies allow us to serve you better and more efficiently, and to personalize your experience at the TMS website. Nevertheless, you should be able to control how and whether cookies will be accepted by your web browser. For more information on how to do so, please refer to the documentation accompanying your browser. In essence, TMS views the use of its cookies as a “luxurious tool” which enables its user to move freely from service to service without the hassle of having to “re-identify” themselves.
TMS users always have a choice whether or not to disclose information. Certain information is required for registration of our services, but most other requested information is optional. It is a top priority at TMS to make its user feel comfortable and in control.
