We do not knowingly collect any Personal Information from children under 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If TTS learns that a child under the age of 13 has submitted Personal Information (defined below) online without parental consent, we will take all reasonable measures to delete the information as soon as possible and to not use such information for any purpose, except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required or allowed by law. If you believe a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us here.
Information We Collect
We may collect the following information, including:
Personal Information You Share With Us: “Personal Information” is information that can personally identify you, such as your name, address, email address, birthday, age, and telephone number. We maintain one or more databases to store your Personal Information and may retain it as reasonably required to serve you and operate the Service. Personal Information that we collect depends on how you use the Service. For example, by registering for an account, we may collect certain information to enable the account setup, such as username, name, email address and other clearly stated items during the account setup process. If you place an order with our store we may collect additional information like shipping and billing address and financial information like credit card number, expiration date, security code and other billing information to permit us to process payments for items you purchase through the Site. Providing your Personal Information to us is your choice. If you choose not to provide us with certain Personal Information, you may not be able to take advantage of certain features of the Service, may not be able to create an account, and may not be able to make purchases from the Site; and
Information We Collect Automatically: When you visit the Service, we may automatically collect identifier and other technical information, such as your browser information, operating system information, device information, TCP-IP address and the date, time, length of stay and specific pages accessed during your visits to the Service (“Online Information”)
Registering for the Service
If you register to use the Service by creating an account, we may collect certain Personal Information as clearly identified during account registration. You must register with the Service to make purchases from the Site.
Our store is hosted on a linux server, on a WordPress CMS that utilizes WooCommerce to provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and Services to you. TTS has no liability or responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of any third party service provider or any other third-party site or service that may be enabled within the Service, including WooCommerce. [MB1] Payment and sentative financial information is not stored on our servers and is only stored on a secured, PCI compliant server at out payment processor’s datacenter. Please see the Payments section for additional details.
Your Personal Information provided during registration is stored behind an SSL certificate, and on a secured Linux server behind CloudFlare with correct file permission settings as suggested by WordPress. The Site is scanned for malware in real time, and deep file scans are performed each month for any potential malware.
Databases that store user information are also stored separately from the web server on a secured MySQL server.
You may review, update, or modify your account information, including profile and contact information, at any time by logging into your TTS account. You may also permanently delete your account by contacting us at [email protected]
Online Identification Tools
Like many website providers, we may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and provide a better web experience. Your IP address is used to help identify you and your shopping cart and gather Online Information.
We may use web beacons (a.k.a. clear GIFs, web bugs or pixel tags) to personalize your experience of the Service and to generate information about Service traffic and trends. Web beacons collect Online Information, such as the type of browser that you use and your IP address. Web beacons may be used alone or in conjunction with cookies; when web beacons are used with cookies, they may link Online Information to other Personal Information that you have provided to us. Web beacons usually are not visible to you.
How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals
Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) or similar feature that signals to websites that a user does not want to have his or her online activity and behavior tracked. If a website that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, many digital service operators, including TTS, do not recognize or respond to DNT signals.
Third Party Features
TTS uses a direct payment gateway to process and complete your purchase during which time your credit card data is stored on a third-party service (for example, Square, Stripe or transnational/authorize.net). It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored pursuant to the third-party payment gateway’s terms and privacy policies which generally is long enough to satisfy the purposes outlined in the relevant third-party policies. For additional information, see https://stripe.com/us/privacy/, https://squareup.com/help/us/en/article/3796-privacy-and-security, and https://www.authorize.net/company/privacy/.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
How Your Personal Information is Used, Processed and Disclosed
send information to customers about orders;
fulfill your orders;
process and collect your payments;
customize, analyze, adjust and improve the Service to better meet your needs;
enforce TTS’s agreements with you;
prevent fraud and other prohibited or illegal activities; and
comply with potential requests of law enforcement or data protection agencies.
When possible, Online Information may be combined and/or linked to other Personal Information that you provided to us, in accordance with the purposes specified above.
We may use your deidentified Personal Information and Online Information to prepare anonymized, aggregated data about our users (“Anonymized Data”). We may provide third parties with Anonymized Data in describing the Service to prospective partners, advertisers and other third parties, and for all other lawful purposes. As communicated to third parties, the Anonymized Data does not include any information permitting the recipient to identify, locate or contact you.
Third Party Service Providers
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

Accessing and Updating Your Personal Information and Preferences
Modifying or Deleting Your Personal Information

We will respond to your request promptly. In most cases you can control the Personal Information you share with us by logging in to your account and updating your information and/or preferences.
Changing Your Subscription Preferences
If you tell us that you do not want us to use your Personal Information to contact you, we will respect your wishes. You may instruct TTS to stop sending you emails, newsletters or other information by following the ‘unsubscribe’ instructions provided in the email. TTS may, however, continue to use your Personal Information to contact you to service your account or as otherwise authorized by law. Please note that if you use more than one name or e-mail address when communicating with TTS or using the Service, you may continue to receive communications from TTS to any name and/or email address not specified in your opt-out request.
