THIS POLICY WILL EXPLAIN:
1. WHAT INFORMATION TVTC COLLECTS FROM YOU WHEN YOU VISIT OUR SITE AND HOW TVTC USES THAT INFORMATION
TVTC does not collect any personally identifiable information from you (e.g., name, address, telephone number, e-mail address) unless you voluntarily choose to disclose such information. One of the basic principles of TVTC is that we ask only for the information we need to provide the service you have requested. We may specifically ask for information about you when you submit your resume for employment, sign up for an e-mail reminder, contact us with a question, or participate in a sweepstakes. We will need certain information such as name, address, e-mail address, or employment history in order to provide you with the appropriate service. We may also use this information to let you know of additional products and services about which you may be interested or provide you with an opportunity to be listed in a directory of one of our services. TVTC's collection of information is explained below:
Contact and Questions: The Web Site allows you to submit questions, comments, or concerns to us. TVTC will ask for your name, street address, phone number, e-mail address, fax number, company name, and your question. This will aid TVTC in responding appropriately to these inquiries. We will use the information to respond to your inquiry and may share it internally to improve our service to you. In addition, we may use the information for various business purposes, including, but not limited to, sharing consumer testimonials about our facility and services with our TVTC customers. However, your information will not be sold to third parties. In addition, when we do use your information, we will not disclose all of your personally identifiable information collected, but instead we will just use your comment or question, your geographic location, and perhaps your name.

In addition, when we do use your information, we will not disclose all of your personally identifiable information collected, but instead we will just use your comment or question, your geographic location, and perhaps your name.
Use of IP Addresses: An Internet Protocol ("IP") address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When visitors request pages from the Web Site, our servers log the guests' IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a visitor's session will be logged, but the visitor remains anonymous to us. TVTC collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to audit the use of this Web Site. We also use IP addresses to collect statistical information to send to our advertisers and for other marketing and promotional purposes.
Cookies: TVTC uses "cookies" to collect non-personal information, as more fully described in Section 4 below.
2. WHO ELSE IS COLLECTING YOUR INFORMATION AND WITH WHOM THEY CAN SHARE IT
TVTC is committed to keeping your personal information confidential. We will not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to third parties.
3. MONITORING, ENFORCEMENT, AND LEGAL REQUESTS
TVTC has no obligation to monitor the Web Site or the use thereof or to retain the content of any user session. However, TVTC reserves the right at all times to monitor, review, retain, and/or disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request or to cooperate with law enforcement and other authorities in investigating a claim of illegal activity. TVTC may use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Terms of Service or to protect our service, site, customers, or others.

5. WHAT KIND OF SECURITY IS IN PLACE TO PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, TVTC cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or any information provided by our on-line products or services, and you do so at your own risk. TVTC will not be liable for disclosures of your personal information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties. However, once we receive your transmission, we do our best to ensure its security on our systems by making reasonable efforts to protect the information.
6. HOW YOU CAN CORRECT ANY INACCURACIES IN YOUR INFORMATION
If you have given TVTC information in the past and now wish to change or delete such information, please contact TVTC at: info@TVTC.us. Or you can contact us by telephone at (830) 334-5260.
TVTC will make reasonable efforts to make the changes you have requested, but it is not always possible to modify database information. In addition, if the information you have given TVTC has already been passed on to third parties, TVTC will not be able to make any changes to it. In some circumstances, such as to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, and enforce our Terms of Service, the information you have requested be removed will be retained by TVTC in our files. Further, such prior information is never completely removed from our databases due to technical constraints and the fact that we back up our systems. Therefore, you should not expect that all of your personally identifiable information will be completely removed from our databases in response to your requests.
