At TNG, we believe in being clear and open about how we use your information. In the spirit of transparency, this policy provides detailed information about how and when we use cookies.

A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to TNG Global’s site, and even know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device.

As a user of our Website, you have certain obligations. Some are imposed by laws, and others have become commonplace in user friendly communities of like-minded members such as TNG Global:

You must, at all times, abide by the terms and conditions of our current Privacy Policy and Membership User Agreement. This includes respecting all intellectual property rights that may belong to third parties (such as trademarks or photographs).

Security
We have security measures on our systems and work hard to secure your personal information from unauthorised access, alteration, disclosure or destruction. We periodically review our processing practices to guard against unauthorized access to our system. However, despite our efforts, we cannot ensure or completely guarantee a 100% secure environment. We restrict access to personal information to employees, contractors, and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
