Introduction TLE respects your privacy, and this Privacy Policy is designed to help you understand how we collect, use, and disclose your personal information, and help you make informed decisions when using our Website. By using our Website, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy. If you have questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Policy, you should first contact us via the contact information provided below.

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into, and made a part of, TLE’s Terms of Use, and capitalized terms used and not defined in this Privacy Policy have the meaning given to them in the Terms of Use.

Direct Notice to Children If you are under 13, one of your parents has to agree to your giving us your personal information.  Please ask one of your parents to read this Web page.

Direct Notice to Parents It is our intention to adhere to the Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act (COPPA). This notice describes our practices of collecting, using, and disclosing personal information from children under 13. Our policies are described below. We also suggest that you review our general Terms of Use. If you have any questions about these policies, you may contact us via the contact information provided below.  You may review, correct, update, or delete your child's personal information that has been provided to us at any time. All you have to do is contact us via the contact information provided below and we will assist you with reviewing and/or editing your child's information.

The Information We Collect We collect only limited information from you when you use our Website. The only information we collect that can be used to identify you individually, sometimes referred to as “personally identifiable information,” is the information (including your name and email address) you may submit to us by filling out the form on the “Contact Us” page on our Website. In addition, if you are a registered user of our Website, our third party provider of online transaction services may collect your IP address, and may also use “cookies,” or small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive to access that information on return visits. No personally identifiable information is generally stored or retrieved in cookies. Please note that our Website does permit a registered user to make personal information publicly available through the registered user message boards and/or chat rooms.

Use of Information Obtained by TLE We will use the contact information you have provided to contact you for administrative purposes, and for customer service purposes.

Sharing Your Information with Third Parties TLE is not in the business of selling your information, and we take your privacy very seriously. In the course of providing our Website to you and other users, we make limited disclosures of your information to others for a variety of purposes.

We share your information with third parties where we believe such sharing is 1) incident to our ordinary business operations (e.g., emailing you through a third party server), 2) legally required or when we choose to collaborate with a law enforcement agency in the investigation or other law enforcement activity, 3) useful to protect and defend our rights and property, 4) useful to protect the personal safety or property of our customers or the public, or 5) authorized by you.

TLE works with a variety of third party service providers to provide development, hosting, maintenance and support, as well as other business services, including the processing of payment information. These providers may have access to or process your personally identifiable information. These providers are generally subject to terms comparable to, but which may vary from, the terms of this Privacy Policy.

In the event that our Website links to certain third party content which requires access credentials (such as a name, user ID, or password) for access, we may provide the access credentials that you give to us to the operator or website owner of the third party content in order to facilitate and enable your access to that third party content.

If the ownership of all or a portion of TLE business, or individual business units owned by TLE were to change, such as through a merger or acquisition, your user information may be transferred to the new owner in connection with that transaction. In any such transfer of information, your user information would remain subject to the Privacy Policy it was subject to at the time of transfer.

TLE may also share automatically collected and other non-personally identifiable information in an aggregate form (such as user trends, application downloads, and demographic information) with a variety of third parties, including our affiliates, advertisers, publishers, and other current and prospective investors or business partners. This information may be used to assist such parties in understanding the usage, viewing, and demographic patterns for certain programs, content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on the TLE products and services.

Security TLE takes certain precautions to protect our users’ information and to limit the risk that it will be accessed without authorization, including use of certain industry standard technologies and practices. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to TLE, and you do so at your own risk. If TLE learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. TLE may post a notice through TLE’s Website if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive a free written notice of a security breach, or if you have any questions about the security of TLE applications, please contact us at

Modifications to this Privacy Policy As specified in the Terms of Use, TLE may from time to time revise this Privacy Policy. If we do, we will post those changes on this page and indicate the new effective date so that you are always aware of what information we collect and how we use it. For changes to this Privacy Policy that may be materially less restrictive on our right to use or disclose your personal information, we will attempt to notify you before implementing the change. Without your consent, we will only use and disclose your information in a manner consistent with the version of the Privacy Policy that was in effect at the time we collected that information. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Policy to stay informed about how we are protecting the information we collect from you.
