Businesses (our Clients) of Third Coast Interactive Inc. (TCI) have implemented a service that provides the ability for customers of the Client to submit online reviews to third-party online customer review websites (Service).
You, as a customer, may be asked to consider leaving a customer review by one or more of our Clients utilizing the Service.

Should you elect to submit a review through a cellular mobile device, certain cellular plan rates and restrictions may apply. You are not required to submit a review. You should not be compensated or rewarded in any way as an inducement to submit a review. Submitted reviews may or may not be displayed on the website of the business for which you are submitting the review.
The Service and the products and services offered are not associated, affiliated, endorsed, sponsored, reviewed, tested or certified by any third-party online review service.
You may be presented with the opportunity to leave a customer review on a Better Business Bureau (BBB) business Profile page. At certain points where personal information is collected, there may be a box where you can choose to indicate you would like to receive information about other BBB programs and services and about ways to support the BBB. This election box only appears in places where personal information is maintained.
When submitting a customer review to the BBB as a customer, you certify that your customer review is your genuine opinion of the business you are reviewing and that you have no personal or business affiliation with this business, and have not been offered any incentive or payment originating from the business to write this review. By submitting this customer review, you are representing that it is a truthful account of your experience with the business. You understand that this customer review, along with your contact information, will also be sent to the business.

You understand that if you choose to file a complaint with BBB on this business that your customer review on this business will not be posted. You also understand that your review will only be posted for 1,095 days (3 years). You understand that the text of your customer review will be publicly posted on the BBB website (BBB reserves the right to not post in accordance with BBB policy).

The Service collects and stores information about you in order to facilitate its transactions and functions. This information allows the Service to better manage information and administer relationships. Some of the information is called "Non-public Personal Information," which generally means information that is provided by you or obtained by the Service, or that which results from TCI Services or transactions. It does not include information available to the general public. The type of information that the Service collects varies according to the Services and transactions requested our Clients and may include the following:

Note: the ability to opt out of this information gathering is provided as outlined above.
First and foremost, TCI NEVER sells lists or Nonpublic Personal Information to third parties; however, such information may be disclosed to others as permitted by law. Generally, this includes disclosures to third parties that are necessary to affect, administer or service a Service or transaction with TCI, or in connection with servicing a Client. These third parties may include, but are not limited to, researchers, programmers, copywriters and SEO professionals. TCI will not disclose information obtained from consumer reporting agencies without your consent.
TCI may also disclose information to people and companies that perform support services with which TCI may have joint agreements. The purpose of this is to inform you of other products or services jointly offered, endorsed, or sponsored by TCI, and that TCI believes you may find useful. TCI is highly selective in choosing these companies, and restricts the information provided to only what they need to offer and administer these services. TCI also requires them to comply with strict standards of security and confidentiality, and they are not permitted to release, use, or transfer any of your information to any other party for their own purposes. Notwithstanding the foregoing, TCI may disclose and/or transfer your information (i) in connection with any merger, sale, or liquidation of all or part of the company; (ii) if disclosure is required pursuant to a request for specific information to comply with a subpoena, court order, and/or other legal instrument, legal proceeding or relevant law, or (iii) if there is an immediate, imminent threat to the safety of any person, TCI or its Services.
TCI is committed to preventing unauthorized access to your personal information, and maintains procedures and technology designed for this purpose. TCI takes several steps to protect your personal information including the following:
TCI updates and tests its technology on a regular basis in order to improve the protection of your information.
TCI requires outside companies and independent contractors to whom TCI provides your personal information for marketing, servicing, or processing purposes to enter into a Confidentiality Agreement that restricts use of your information for those purposes and prohibits independent use of the information.
TCI also has internal procedures that limit access to your personal information, such as procedures that require an employee to have a business need to access such information. TCI may maintain policies and conduct employee training about the proper physical security of workplaces and records. TCI employees are required to comply with Information privacy principles, policies and procedures, or be subject to disciplinary action, including termination.
TCI makes use of hardware and/or software firewalls to protect your personal information from unauthorized access.
TCI also strives to protect the integrity of your personal information, and other related information, through use of the following:
Maintaining regular backups of Client data in case of data loss or corruption,
The use of uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) to prevent data loss during power spikes and power outages, and
Virus detection and elimination software to prevent corruption of Client data by viruses. Despite these measures, however, TCI cannot guarantee and will not be held responsible that Nonpublic Personal Information will be completely free from unauthorized access.
TCI does not track customers choosing to leave an online customer review over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, search engines may allow you to set the DNT signal on your browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.
Third parties may have content, such as a social feature, embedded on websites which may set cookies on your browser and/or obtain information about the fact that a web browser visited a specific website from a certain IP address. Third parties may not collect any other personally identifiable information from websites unless you provide it to them directly.
TCI offers interactive Services which allow you to post content to share publicly. You may be able to delete or remove content you have posted using available deletion or removal options on third party websites. TCI does not provide any capability to alter or remove submitted content. TCI services are provided for customers to submit online customer reviews to third party websites. The service is not provided for entertainment purposes or for those that have not had a valid business transaction relating to the specific customer review being submitted by you.
