Information Collection and Use
Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. You provide most such information when you request information from TDS, Inc.

We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests and communicating with you.
Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact electronically with us. For example, like many websites, we use “cookies,” and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses transitionaldata.com. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser.

A number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit websites anonymously. In addition, the Federal Trade Commission provides useful information about online privacy on its own website, Site Seeing on the Internet. Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience at transitionaldata.com if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist.
