Information Collection & Use
TWS requires Members to register for TWS Membership and provide personal information including but not limited to the Member's name, postal address, phone number and email address. TWS does not collect such information from others. TWS uses this information to establish and deliver the benefits of Membership and to communicate with the Member about new offerings or potential Member benefits.
The collection and use of personal data (along with other kinds of data) is critical to the successful operation of TWS. We collect and use personal data from or about you to support and serve our membership, including to:
TWS also collects and analyze information regarding the use of TWS's Memberships and TWS site activity (“personally identifiable information” or “PII”). PII collected may include but is not limited to web site traffic volume, frequency of visits, type and time of transactions, type of browser and operating system, etc. This information is logged to help diagnose technical problems, administer the site, and improve the quality and types of Membership delivered. TWS may also collect, track and analyze information that does not personally identify a user in aggregate form. This aggregate data will be used at TWS's discretion and may be shared with third parties. TWS also occasionally shares personal data with select, unaffiliated organizations for use in their own social or Veterans-related missions.
We may collect personal data about you from unaffiliated sources with whom we contract, such as other service providers and data aggregators, as well as from public sources or databases. We may obtain data such as your name, postal address, telephone number, demographic data (such as age, gender, income level, and purchasing profiles), and publicly observed data (such as activity on blogs, videos, and other online postings). We generally use such data to identify potential members or other individuals we try to reach as part of our services, to update personal data we already have about current Members and other individuals (such as an address update), or to enhance our data models.
We may also purchase or license personal data lists from unaffiliated sources and provide access to those lists to other entities. Although we may enhance such lists by applying our data models, we do not contribute personal data related to TWS members to such lists.
TWS has implemented processes designed to protect PII and Member information and maintain security. Each registered Member is assigned a unique user name and password which is required to access their account and relationship information. It is the Member's responsibility to protect the security of their login information. TWS's servers are located in secure server environments. Firewalls and other advanced security technologies are employed to prevent interference or access from outside intruders. These safeguards help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of data.
From time to time TWS requires to communicate with its Membership for various purposes including, but not limited to, the sending of password reminders, membership updates, official newsletters. Members may opt out of receiving selected communications from their account settings.
