Your Personal Information and How We Use It
We respect the privacy of all our online guests. Our Sites, Apps and underlying infrastructure recognize and record certain information about visitors and users. The nature of the information collected may include the type of browser used, the type of operating system of your computer or other Internet access device, the domain name or Internet Protocol (“IP”) address of the visitor’s / user’s Internet service provider, the Site/App pages visited by users, the actions taken on said pages, and the character and duration of Site/App usage. In addition, our Apps will recognize and record all data that you input into it.
In the instance where users provide additional Personal Information during their use of the Site or App (for example by logging in), this Personal Information may be stored alongside the aforementioned information and all subsequently collected information. This information (both personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable) may be used for the purposes of improving our Sites and Apps, improving our business, troubleshooting issues, supporting our customers/users and any other use that we deem necessary for the effective delivery of services to our end-users and our customers. The collection of information for these purposes may be facilitated by our Apps and Sites directly or by using external third-party services including, but not limited to: Google Universal Analytics, Mixpanel Analytics, Session Recording Tools, etc.
Non-Personal Information gathered by our Sites during regular browsing (i.e. not signed in) may be used to help analyse Site traffic and improve our services. We may also aggregate such information to create statistical data and we may share that information (or its non-aggregated form) with potential advertisers, partners, affiliates and other third parties. At no point, however, do we access any personally identifiable facts in this process. We do not collect personally identifiable information from visitors to our Sites or users of our Apps unless it is provided to us voluntarily and knowingly.
How We Safeguard your Personal Information
T&G has and will endeavour to maintain the appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect Personal Information against accidental or unlawful damage or destruction, accidental loss, theft, alteration, unauthorised disclosure, access or use. We endeavour to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk represented by the nature of Personal Information being protected and purpose(s) for which it is being collected.
Personal Information may only be accessed by T&G employees, contractors and agents on a need-to-know basis, for the purpose(s) for which the Personal Information has been collected and only in support of legitimate business purposes.
Please be advised, however, that while we strive to do everything reasonably possible to protect your Personal Information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your Personal Information where our security measures have been breached. Consider this when making your Personal information available to us.
Who We Might Share Personal Information With

Your Personal Information may be transferred to other companies within T&G’s group of companies, or other third-parties that help us deliver our services to you. These companies might be located in other countries and may be subject to different laws.
