What information is collected when Do Not Track is enabled on a computer?
Web sites (or web applications) can track your browsing behavior to better tailor suggestions and information for you. Do Not Track is a preference you can set for your browser (if supported) to opt-out of online behavioral tracking. TKC Holdings' web site does not require cookies and therefore, Do Not Track settings are not recognized by its web site; however, personally identifiable information is only captured and stored when you provide the specific information to TKC Holdings to enact a transaction. TKC Holdings protects and secures your information in the same manner whether Do Not Track is enabled or not. Additionally, any personally identifiable information is unavailable to third parties, as TKC Holdings does not permit third parties to conduct online tracking on its web site.
What Non-Personal Information Do We Collect about You?
