Protecting your Privacy
Titan Tungsten is committed to protecting individual privacy and values the confidence of its employees, customers, consumers, business partners and others. This Policy describes the type of information Titan Tungsten may collect from you; how your information is collected, used, and safeguarded; and the choices you have regarding your information.
This Policy applies to all personal information received by Titan Tungsten in any format including electronic, paper or verbal. "Personal information" means any information or set of information that directly or indirectly identifies or is used by or on behalf of Titan Tungsten to identify an individual. Personal information does not include information that is encoded or anonymized, or publicly available information that has not been combined with non-public personal information. "Sensitive personal information" means personal information that reveals race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, or that concerns an individual's health. In addition, the Companies will treat as sensitive personal information any information received from a third party where that third party treats and identifies the information as sensitive.
Prior to collecting your personal information, Titan Tungsten will provide you notice about the type of personal information collected, the purposes for which it is collected and used, and the types of non-Agent third parties to which Titan Tungsten discloses or may discloses that information. Titan Tungsten will also inform you about the choices and means Titan Tungsten makes available for limiting the use and disclosure of your personal information. Titan Tungsten will obtain assurances from its Agents that they will safeguard personal information consistently with this Policy. "Agent" means any third party that collects or uses personal information under the instructions of, and solely for, Titan Tungsten or to which Titan Tungsten discloses personal information for use on its behalf. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when individuals are first asked to provide personal information to Titan Tungsten, or as soon as practicable thereafter, and in any event before Titan Tungsten uses or discloses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected. Where Titan Tungsten receives personal information from its subsidiaries, affiliates or other entities in the European Union or elsewhere, Titan Tungsten will use and disclose such information in accordance with the notices provided by such entities and the choices made by the individuals to whom such personal information relates.
Titan Tungsten will use personal information only in ways that are compatible with the purpose for which it was collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. Titan Tungsten will take reasonable steps to ensure that personal information is relevant to its intended use, accurate, and complete.
If you have any questions about this Policy, or the manner in which Titan Tungsten uses personal information, we encourage you to contact us at DataPrivacy@titan-tungsten.com.

We may use your personal information to provide the products and services that you have ordered or requested, to process and ship orders, to provide customer service, to provide other services to you, and to personalize our websites, our communications with you, and your shopping experience.

Except as described in this Policy, we will not disclose your personal information outside of Titan Tungsten without your consent. Titan Tungsten shares certain personal and/or financial information with its merchant account and banking vendors to process orders and payments and with common carriers to ship products to you. We may hire other companies to provide services on our behalf, such as marketing, analytics, credit card processing, shipping, stocking orders, providing customer service, and fraud protection. These service providers have access only to such personal information needed to perform their functions, pursuant to contractual agreements with Titan Tungsten, and are contractually obligated to maintain the confidentiality and security of your information. They are restricted from using, selling, distributing or altering this data in any way other than to provide the requested services.
Titan Tungsten may share customer and consumer information within our family of companies for a variety of purposes, including to provide you with the latest information about our products and services and offer you our latest promotions. Depending on the country in which you are located, your personal information may be transferred to another country for data storage and processing. When we transfer personal information, we use commercially reasonable efforts to transfer the information in compliance with all applicable data protection laws.
We may access or disclose information about you, including the content of your communications, in order to: (a) comply with the law or respond to lawful requests or legal process or (b) to the extent permitted by applicable law, rule, or regulation.

You may also request access to or that we correct, amend, or delete certain personal information in our customer databases by contacting Titan Tungsten. No fee will be charged for such requests. Titan Tungsten will make reasonable efforts to comply with your request to delete your information unless we have a legitimate business or legal purpose to retain such information. We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical.
We are committed to preventing others from unauthorized access to the personal information you provide to us, and have put in place reasonable technical and organizational security measures to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control. Nevertheless, such security measures cannot prevent all loss, misuse or alteration of personal information and we are not responsible for any damages or liabilities relating to any such incidents to the fullest extent permitted by law. In the case of a data breach, we will notify you without delay of any loss, misuse or alteration of personal information that may affect you. We will notify relevant regulatory bodies within the timeframe required by the applicable data protection laws.

Titan Tungsten does not send emails to customers requesting billing, login or password information. If you receive an email purporting to be from Titan Tungsten that asks you to provide personal or account information, or login and passwords, do not provide such information unless you have first verified that the website or email is from Titan Tungsten.
