Posted Information:
There are several places on The Tailhook Association’s websites and applications that allow you to post comments, upload pictures, or submit content for others to see. Sometimes you might be able to limit who can see what you share, but there are some places where what you share can be seen by the general public or other members of the website or application. Please be careful when you share your personal information. Do not share anything you wouldn’t want publicly known unless you are sure you are posting it within a website or application that allows you to control who sees what you post. If you choose to share personal information or a document, the terms of this privacy policy will not apply to any information shared. Please note that when you post messages on certain user forums on our websites and applications, your email address or name may be included and displayed with your message.
Security:
We understand that the security of your personal information is important. We provide reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security controls to protect your personal information. However, despite our efforts, no security controls are 100% effective and The Tailhook Association cannot ensure or warrant the security of your personal information.
Your personal information and data files are stored on The Tailhook Association’s servers and the servers of companies we hire to provide services to us.
Changes:
Occasionally, we may change or update this privacy policy to allow The Tailhook Association to use or share your previously collected personal information in a materially different way. If we do, the links to the policy on our websites and online services will indicate that the policy has been changed or updated. For new users, the change or update will become effective upon posting. For existing users, the change or update will become effective 30 days after posting. We encourage you to periodically review The Tailhook Association privacy policy for the latest information on our privacy practices.
