Privacy Policy

Tax Credit Advisor (TCA) is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Privacy Statement applies to the TCA website and governs data collection and usage. By using the TCA website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Collection of your Personal Information

TCA collects personally identifiable information, such as your email address, name, home, work address or telephone number. TCA also collects anonymous demographic information that is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that TCA automatically collects. This information can include your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by TCA for the operation of the service, to maintain the quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding the use of the TCA website.

Please remember that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through TCA public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: TCA does not read any of your private online communications.

TCA encourages you to review the privacy statements of the websites you choose to link to from TCA so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. TCA is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the TCA website.

Use of your Personal Information

TCA collects and uses your personal information to operate the TCA website and deliver the services you have requested. TCA also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from TCA and its affiliates. TCA may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

TCA does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. TCA may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may interest you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (email, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, TCA may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support or arrange deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to TCA, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

TCA does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

TCA keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within the TCA website to determine what TCA services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within TCA to customers whose behavior indicates interest in a particular subject area.

TCA websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on TCA or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of TCA; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of TCA, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The TCA website uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file placed on your hard disk by a webpage server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize TCA pages or register with TCA’s site or services, a cookie helps TCA recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses and so on. When you return to the same TCA website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the TCA features that you customized.

You can accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser settings to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the TCA services or websites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

TCA secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. TCA secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

TCA occasionally updates this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. TCA encourages you to periodically review this statement to be informed of how TCA is protecting your information.

TCA welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that TCA has not adhered to this statement, please contact TCA at [email protected]. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to determine and remedy the problem promptly.
