Whenever you link to another web site, you may be asked to provide registration or other information.

Do Not Track

Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in their web browsers. When a user turns on DNT, the browser sends a message to websites requesting that they don’t track the user. TPG does not change its practices, described elsewhere in this privacy policy, in response to Do Not Track browser settings or signals. For information about DNT, visit www.allaboutdnt.org.

Third parties may collect personal information about your online activities over time and across different websites, including your use of this Site. This Privacy Policy does not apply to, and we are not responsible for, the practices of third parties that collect your personal information.

How Long We Keep Information

The time period for which we keep personal information depends on the purposes for which we collected it. In all cases we keep it for as long as necessary to fulfill those purposes. We will then delete this personal information unless we are required to preserve your personal data in connection with litigation, investigations and proceedings, or if a longer retention period is required or permitted by applicable law.
