Why and how does TAUS collect data?

To whom may TAUS provide data?
All personal data that TAUS collects is transferred, processed and stored on servers at the TAUS hosted service provider company in the United States of America. In general the data protection laws of the United States of America do not afford the same (adequate) level of protection to your personal data. TAUS will therefore ensure that all adequate safeguards are in place and that all applicable laws and regulations are complied with in connection with such transfer.
From time to time the personal data you have provided to TAUS, may be shared with TAUS’s service providers who provide support with respect to the maintenance and the management of the Website. These service providers may only use the personal data when they provide services for TAUS and/or for purposes for which TAUS has collected this data, and they are not allowed to use your personal data for other purposes.
Furthermore, TAUS undertakes not to communicate your personal data to any other party without your prior consent, unless it is required to do so in accordance with any provision of the law or a court judgment.
Is TAUS responsible for other websites?
The Website may contain references (such as hyperlinks, banners or buttons) to other websites. This does not mean that TAUS is related to these other websites or the owners thereof. TAUS is therefore not responsible for the compliance with the privacy legislation by these third parties.
How is the data secured?
TAUS ensures that adequate technical and organizational measures are taken to secure your personal data against loss or any unlawful processing.
The Website is hosted by Hostgator in Houston (Texas) in the United States of America. Hostgator is contractually obliged to process your personal data properly by, amongst other things, implementing sufficient security measures and processing the personal data only in accordance with our instructions.
The TAUS platform member area is password protected. Members use HTTPS or a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) connection when connecting to TAUS to ensure that all data transmission is encrypted. All data is stored behind a dedicated firewall. The firewall is comprised with Cisco WebNS Software which ensures high levels of security without compromising site performance.
Online registration is also performed with an HTTPS encrypted connection. No credit card information is entered or stored on the TAUS website. Online payment is through secure payment to RaboBank. The Rabobank Group is bound by the Personal Data Protection Act, and supports the Code of Financial Institutions, issued by the Dutch Association of Banks and the Federation of Insurers.
