How We Collect Personal Information
We collect several types of information from and about users of our site. While you can use any Site(s) features anonymously, you may be required to provide Personal Information to gain access to some of our content or services. Personal information may include but is not limited to your name, email address, mailing address, and phone number. For example, we may ask you to provide us with Personal Information that can be used to contact or identify you, including information you provide by filling in forms on our site. This includes information provided to use or receive information about services and offerings from TEI. For example, when you fill out the "Register Now" form or "Contact" form," you consent to release any Personal Information provided and/or data to us. Likewise, by submitting your Personal Information through the site, you consent to receive email or other applicable information from us.
How We Use Your Personal Information
• To present our site and its contents to you.
• To provide you with information or services that you request from us, such as sending you certain information about TEI's services and offerings.
• To contractors, service providers, and other third parties we use to support our business and who are bound by contractual obligations to keep Personal Information confidential and use it only for the purposes we disclose it to them.
• To a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of TEI's assets, where Personal Information held by TEI about our Site users is among the assets transferred.
• To fulfill the purpose for which you provide it.
• To comply with any court order, law, or legal process, including responding to government or regulatory requests.
• With your consent.
Collection and Use of Anonymous Information
We may also collect automatic, anonymous information such as browser type and version, browser language, your operating system and platform, and the Internet Protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the internet. This information does not identify you but is statistical data used for analytical purposes and helps us provide more relevant services to users. For example, we may use this information to administer and troubleshoot issues directly related to the site, such as Site administration, or to analyze certain trends in Site usage.
We may also collect anonymous information through the use of tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a transparent graphic image (usually 1-pixel x 1 pixel) placed on a web page. In combination with a cookie, it allows for collecting information regarding the use of the web page that contains the tracking pixel. For example, we use tracking pixels to tell when you have clicked on certain website features or otherwise interacted with those features and use that information to learn about visitor use. In some cases, we use third-party service providers to help us collect and analyze this anonymous information.
We have enabled Google Analytics to collect data about our traffic through Google advertisements and other anonymous identifiers. In addition, we use Google Analytics cookies and other cookies to compile data to better understand users and provide users with a more tailored experience. You can opt out of Google Analytics by visiting Google's Opt-Out Browser Add-on.
How We Protect Information
We have taken commercially reasonable precautions to protect the data and information under our control from misuse, loss, or alteration. Our security measures include industry-standard technology and equipment to help protect your data. Unfortunately, considering the open nature of the internet, no system can ensure complete security, and you should take steps to protect your information and transmissions to the site.
If you change your mind about receiving information from us at any time after registering for information, send us a request specifying your new choice. Send your request to TEI via email.

Children Under the Age of 13
We do not sell products or services for purchase by anyone under the age of 13. Following the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we will never knowingly request or solicit personally identifiable information from anyone under 13 without verifiable parental consent. Suppose we receive actual knowledge that we have collected such personal information without the requisite and verifiable parental consent. In that case, we will delete that information from our database as quickly as is practical.
Compliance with Legal Process
Please be aware that we will release specific Personal Information about you if required to comply with applicable law or any valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court order. We may also choose to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
