Privacy Policy

Introduction. At TMS International ("TMS", "we", "us" and "our"), the privacy of our online customers and visitors is important to us. We are committed to protecting the privacy and security of any information collected by this Site. Read below for more specific information on the type of information that we collect and how we use it.

Please note that our Site may contain links to and from third-party websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of third-party websites. The information practices of third-party websites are not covered by this Privacy Policy.

Information We Collect And How We Use Information Collected. You may visit our Site without revealing personally identifiable information about yourself. The only personally identifiable information - such as name, telephone number, email address ("Personal Information") - that we collect about visitors is that provided voluntarily. By submitting Personal Information (e.g., by filling out a form, creating an account or requesting information), you consent to the collection and use of your Personal Information by us as described in this Privacy Policy.

Cookies. In addition, our Site may utilize cookies to collect information about visitors. This may include your referring domain, type of internet browser, operating system software, date and time of visit and other technical data related to your visit. We use this information to evaluate the use of our Site and to make improvements to it. Please note that if you choose to not have your browser accept cookies, you may be unable to view or use certain portions or functions of this Site.

Security. We take the security of your data seriously. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect the security and confidentiality of any Personal Information provided to us. Unfortunately, no data transmission or security program can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. However, once we receive your information, we will do our best to ensure that our systems are functioning properly and will use reasonable and customary efforts to protect any information that you provide.

Your Rights With Respect To Your Personal Information. Depending on the location from where you access our Site, you may have the right to access, correct, delete, or restrict use of certain Personal Information covered by this Privacy Policy and exercise all other rights set forth in Articles 15-22 of the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR"). You may also have the right to request that we refrain from processing your Personal Information. Please bear in mind that if you exercise such rights this may affect our ability to provide our products and services. While we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request, we also reserve the right to impose certain restrictions and requirements on such requests, if allowed or required by applicable laws. Please note that it may take some time to process your request.

Transferring Personal Information From The EU/EEA To The U.S. TMS is headquartered in the United States. Information you provide to us or we collect from you will be processed in the United States. The United States is not currently considered by the EU to provide an adequate level of data protection. We therefore rely on exceptions listed in the GDPR. In particular, we collect and transfer your Personal Information to the United States only: with your consent; to perform services under the contracts we have in place with our customers; or to fulfill a compelling legitimate interest of TMS that does not outweigh your rights or freedoms. We strive to apply suitable safeguards to protect the privacy and security of your Personal Information and to use it only as described in this Privacy Policy. We also enter into data processing agreements and standard contractual clauses with our customers and vendors, whenever feasible and appropriate.

Data Storage And Retention. To the extent any Personal Information is collected, we store your Personal Information on our servers and the servers of third-party service providers located in the United States. We retain your Personal Information for the duration of the business relationship and for a period thereafter to analyze your data for our business operations, to allow our customers to recover account information and/or for archiving purposes.

Disclosure Of Information.To the extent that you submit Personal Information to us, certain federal, state, local or other government regulations may require that we disclose Personal Information in response to legal process, court order or subpoena. In such cases, we will use reasonable efforts to disclose only the information required by law. In addition, we reserve the right to make your Personal Information available to our operational service providers engaged to assist us with the hosting, storage fulfillment, disaster recovery or other IT-related aspects of our Site. Lastly, if TMS merges with, acquires or is sold to another company or goes into bankruptcy or engages in other such business transactions, we may share files and email records, including your Personal Information, with our business partners.

Note Concerning Minors. We do not intentionally collect Personal Information from children, nor do we offer any content targeted to children. We ask that children under the age of sixteen do not use our Site.

Changes To Privacy Policy. Because of the evolving nature of technologies and the way we conduct business, we may amend this policy from time to time and will post any revisions on this Site. Your use of our Site after the effective date of any modification, means you accept and agree to be bound by the Privacy Policy as modified.
