This site is owned and operated by Tom Gross. Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At Tom Gross, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe.

Information Tom Gross gathers and Tracks
Tom Gross gathers two types of information about users:
Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive further information about our products or services. Under no circumstances does Tom Gross divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
Information Tom Gross gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers’ needs. Under no circumstances does Tom Gross divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
Tom Gross Gathers User Information In The Following Processes:
Our users can choose to enter their details to receive further information relating to our products or services. The information gathered from this form is used for identifying users needs and to provide contact information for further communication about our products and services as specifically requested.
Consistent with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.
Tom Gross tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. Tom Gross does break down overall usage statistics according to a user’s domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user’s browser).
We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
Use of information
Tom Gross uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our network of sites, make contact via phone or email to provide information requested by users, provide interactive or personalised elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.
As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out personalised quotes or make contact with users who have questions or need further advice or information. Tom Gross never shares personal information with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners.
Because we don’t track the usage patterns of individual users, an advertiser or sponsor will never know that a specific user clicked their ad. We will not disclose any information about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
Sharing of the information
Tom Gross uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs and provide information that has been requested by users. We will not share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
We give users options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include:
Opting not to participate in certain interactive areas, which completely alleviates the need to gather any personally identifiable information from our users.
Contact vie email or phone to request the deletion of any correspondance or personal information.
