Version as of: 10/2/2013

The Training Associates Corporation (“TTA”) Privacy Policy
Effective on: September 13, 2013

TTA knows that as a user (the “User”) of this website (the “Site”) the User cares how information about it is used and shared.
This notice describes TTA’s privacy policy for its Site including all online Services, portals and functions.
1) Registration
The User must register on this Site in order to fully use certain aspects of the Site’s online services and functions, such as quoting on the Job Board.
During registration, the User will be required to provide contact information, consisting of at least an email address, and password.

2) Cookies
A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes.
TTA uses cookies on the Site.
TTA uses both “session ID cookies” and “persistent cookies.” TTA uses session cookies to make it easier for the User to navigate the Site. A session ID cookie expires when the User closes the Users browser. If the User checks “remember me on this computer” when logging in to the Site, TTA will set a persistent cookie to store the User’s username passwords, so the User should not have to enter it more than once. The persistent cookie also enables TTA to track and target the interests of the User to enhance the experience on the Site. The persistent cookie is removed when the User unchecks the “remember my email” check box.
The User’s web browser allows the User to control and limit cookies on the User’s computer. If the User rejects cookies, the User may still use the Site, but the User’s ability to use some areas or functions of the Site may be limited.

3) Email from TTA for Newsletters and Announcements
TTA may use the User’s email address to provide the User with email newsletters and announcements. If the User does not wish to receive these kinds of communications, the User can opt out by visiting the “Email Preferences” page. TTA also offers the User the option to unsubscribe from newsletters and announcements by changing the User’s profile on the My Profile page on the Site.

4) Product Information and Offers
The email address that the User provides on the Site may be used to contact the User about other product and service offers from TTA. TTA may also use that information to let the User know of additional products and services from other companies that the User might be interested in. If the User does not wish to receive these kinds of communications, the User can opt out by visiting the Email Preferences page. In addition, the User can choose not to receive such information by opting-out on the My Profile page on the Site.

5) Significant Announcements by Email
TTA may also use the User email address to provide the User with significant announcements about TTA including Site functions or services that the User is registered to provide, about this Site, about any user account the User may create, about fulfillment of a specific transaction the User have requested, or about other significant developments that may affect the User’s use of the Site. The User cannot opt-out of this kind of email.

6) Communications with Others
The Site may allow the User to contribute to one or more blogs or communicate by means of online functions.
Nothing requires the User to disclose the User identity to others. If the User choose to disclose the User identity to third parties using any Site function or service, the User do so at the User own risk. TTA is not responsible for the privacy or security of any information, personal or otherwise that the User may choose to communicate or exchange using the functionality of the Site.
Each item of information or any materials the User contributes for such purposes are the User “Public Content.” Public Content must be content and information that the User have a right to disclose and transfer and must not violate any other person’s privacy or intellectual property rights.

7) Feedback to TTA
TTA has feedback functionality on the Site that allows the User to submit comments, suggestions, or bugs found. TTA may collect the Username or username and email address in order to follow up with the User or thank the User for a suggestion.

8) Anonymous Data
TTA may track the Site to analyze trends, administer the Site, and track User actions and use of the Site, record transactions, and gather demographic information for aggregate use. Such analysis is not linked to personally identifiable information. TTA may share aggregated demographic and usage information with its partners and advertisers. This aggregated information is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.

9) Links
This Site may contain links to other sites. TTA is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. TTA encourages users to be aware when they leave the Site and to read the privacy statements of sites that collect personally identifiable information. This privacy policy applies only to information collected on this Site.

10) Security Technology
When a Site’s registration/order form asks users to enter financial information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected during transmission through the Internet using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) software. The User should see the lock icon on the bottom of web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked or open when the User are just surfing. If the User has any questions about the security, the User can send an email to < a>

11) Correction/Updating of Personal Information
If the User provides personally identifiable information changes (such as an email address or zip code), TTA will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove the User personal data. This can usually be done at the My Profile page.

12) Protection of Minors
Children under the age of 18 are not permitted to register on this Site or use any functionality for which registration is required.

13) Business or Asset Transfer or Sale
TTA may be sold, might sell or buy businesses or assets of businesses, or TTA might merge with another business. In such transactions, personnel information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that TTA, a line of business of TTA, or substantially all the assets of TTA are transferred, customer information may well be one of the transferred assets. TTA will make reasonable effort to provide notice on the Site and to notify the User via email to the most recent email address that the User have provided to TTA of any such change in ownership or control of the User personal information.

14) Release of Information for Legal Reasons
TTA may release information concerning the Use ruse of TTA (including, but not limited to, posted Public Content, registration information, and network records) when it believes in good faith that such release is appropriate to comply with the law (for example, pursuant to a statutory demand, subpoena, warrant or court order), to protect against fraudulent, abusive or unlawful use of the TTA, to protect TTA’s rights or property, enforce any contract between the User and TTA, or if TTA reasonably believes that a situation involving danger of death or injury to any person requires disclosure.

15) Limited Use
TTA does not intend to sell, share, or rent information obtained on this Site other than as discussed in this privacy policy.

16) Changes in This Privacy Policy
If TTA decides to change its privacy policy, TTA will post those changes on TTA’s Site so TTA’s users can remain aware of what information TTA collects, how TTA uses it, and under what circumstances, if any, TTA discloses it.

17) The User California Privacy Rights
Residents of the State of California, under the California Civil Code, have the right to request from companies conducting business in California a list of all third parties to which the Company has disclosed personal information during the preceding year for direct marketing purposes and a disclosure of the shared information. Alternatively, the law provides that if the company has a privacy policy that provides the User with an “opt-out” choice for use of the User personal information by third parties for marketing purposes, the Company may instead provide The User with information on how to exercise the User disclosure choice options.
This Site qualifies for the alternative option. Its privacy policy provides the User with information on how the User may opt-out from the use of the User personal information by third parties for direct marketing purposes. Therefore, we are not required to maintain or disclose a list of the third parties that received the User personal information during the preceding year for marketing purposes.

If the User is a California resident and request information about how to exercise the User third party disclosure choices, send a request to the following email address:
