    Tarbell only shares personal information with other companies or individuals outside of Tarbell in the following limited circumstances:

    • To our present or future affiliates.
    • To unaffiliated third parties that are under contract to perform services for or on behalf of Tarbell (Service Providers), including credit card processors or financial institutions to the extent necessary to process credit card or other financial information you provide, and vendors providing or maintaining products or service to Tarbell to the extent necessary or useful to provide such services. Any access to such information will be limited to the purpose for which such information was provided to the affiliate or Service Provider. Our affiliates and Service Providers may be located throughout the world. Accordingly, your Personal Information may be sent to countries that have a different level of privacy protection than the United States of America (USA) or your country of residence. We require that these parties agree to process such information based on our instructions and in compliance with appropriate confidentiality and security measures.
    • We have your consent. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any personally identifiable information except as otherwise provided in this policy.
    • We have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is permitted by law and is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, (b) enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or (d) protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Tarbell, its users or the public as required or permitted by law.

    If Tarbell becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of sale of some or all of its assets, personal information may be transferred to a successor entity. We will ensure the confidentiality of any personal information involved in such transactions and provide notice before personal information and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

    Information security

    We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures. We encrypt financial information, such as credit card numbers, both in transmission and storage and we use appropriate encryption and physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data. Tarbell processes personal information on our servers in the United States of America and in other countries. In some cases, we process personal information outside your own country.

    We restrict access to personal information to Tarbell employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
    Links and Third Party Web Sites

    This Policy applies only to the Sites.
    The Sites may include links to the web sites of both affiliated and non-affiliated entities (Other Sites), including access to content, products and services of such affiliated and non-affiliated entities. In some cases, these Other Sites may have the same (or a similar) look and feel as our Site and therefore may appear to be part of our Site. However, the URL of such sites will show that they are not part of our Site. We urge you to familiarize yourself with the individual privacy and other terms for each linked site prior to submitting any personal information.

    Accessing and updating personal information
    When you use Tarbell services, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information on request and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort. Because of the way we maintain certain services, after you delete your information, residual copies may take a period of time before they are deleted from our active servers and may remain in our backup systems.

    Tarbell regularly reviews its compliance with this Privacy Policy. When we receive formal written complaints, it is Tarbell’s policy to contact the complaining user regarding his or her concerns. We will cooperate with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that cannot be resolved between Tarbell and an individual.

    We occasionally may conduct surveys among users which request the provision of Personal Information such as name and email address, as well as Non-Personal information regarding your experience on our Site. You may be selected for participation in such surveys. Participation in these surveys and the corresponding submission of Personal Information are voluntary.

    Please note that this Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will not reduce your rights under this Privacy Policy without your explicit consent. We will post any Privacy Policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice (including, for certain services, email notification of Privacy Policy changes). We will also keep prior versions of this Privacy Policy in an archive for your review.
