If you do not agree to (or cannot comply with) the Terms and Conditions as amended, you should immediately stop using the Website and Services. TFC shall not be obliged to make any other remedy available to you. You should regularly review these Terms and Conditions so that you are aware of any changes. Your continued use of the Website or Services after any such changes constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms and Conditions. Any Content which you have accessed previously will be subject to the provisions of the Terms and Conditions as they were at the date you accessed that Content.
2 THE SERVICES
2.1 Services. The Website provides digital media download and streaming services (the "Services") designed to enable you to access and purchase or redeem legal digital content (the "Content"). The Content may be transferred to you from third party websites, by third party content suppliers acting on TFC's instructions. The Services are for your own personal and non-commercial use and you are not authorized to make any copies of any downloads or streams other than for personal use.
2.2 You may access the Services by redeeming points or vouchers issued to you by TFC or by another customer loyalty programme operator on whose behalf we operate the Website you wish to access. Points or vouchers issued by TFC (which may be called "ClubCoins") are subject to an expiry date (which will have been made known to you at the time they were issued). You cannot use any TFC points or vouchers after their expiry date, and we will be under no obligation to honour them or to provide any cash equivalent if they are not redeemed before their expiry date. Points or vouchers issued by any third party for whom we operate a Website will be subject to the terms and conditions governing the loyalty programme under which they were issued and may also be valid for a limited period of time only. You should check with the operator of that scheme for when you must use any such vouchers or points by.
2.3 Vouchers or points accepted on our Websites may be used for accessing the Services and redeemed for purchasing the Content only. We will not provide any cash equivalent or any other services or products in exchange for vouchers or points.
3 OBJECTIONABLE MATERIAL
3.1 Objectionable Material. You understand that by using the Services, you may encounter Content that may be deemed offensive, indecent, or objectionable, which content may or may not be identified as having explicit language. TFC will endeavour to label any such Content with age ratings, but you agree to use the Service at your sole risk and TFC will not be liable to you for Content that may be found to be offensive, indecent, or objectionable. TFC does not guarantee the accuracy of any descriptions provided on our Website.
4 CHILD SUPERVISIONS
4.1 Accessing the Website. We are concerned about the safety and privacy of our users, particularly children.

6.2 Information we collect
We collect limited information to provide a better user experience - from figuring out basic stuff such as which language you speak, to more complex things such as which country you are in, so we only give you access to the rewards available in your Country. The information TFC International Ltd. collects is strictly for the performance of the service now and in the future.
When you are not signed in to a TFC International Ltd. Account, we store the information that we collect with unique identifiers tied to the browser, application or device that you're using. This helps us do things such as maintain your language preferences across browsing sessions.
(a) Information we collect as you use our services:
We collect information about the apps, browsers and devices that you use to access our services, which helps us provide features such as recommendations on new rewards.
The information that we collect includes unique identifiers, browser type and settings, device type and settings, operating system, mobile network information and application version number. We also collect information about the interaction of your apps, browsers and devices with our services, including IP address and the date, time of your request.
We collect this information when your apps, browsers and devices contact our servers, but they are not connected to your personal information.
(b) Your activity
We collect information about your activity on our services, which we use to do things like recommend a reward that you might like or provide customer service for the items you've redeemed. The activity information that we collect may include:
(i) Your first and last name
(ii) Your address
(iii) What you search for
(iv) Pages you visited
(v) Reward pages

6.3 Why we collect data?
We use the information that we collect from all our services for the following purposes:
(a) Provide our services
We use your information to deliver our services.
(b) Maintain & improve our services
We use the information we collect to make improvements to our services - for example, understanding how your redemption experience was so we can make it smother.
(c) Provide personalised services
We use the information we collect to customise our services for you, including providing recommendations and personalisation.
(d) Measure performance
We use data for analytics and measurement to understand how our service is used. For example, we analyse data about your visits to our sites to do things like optimise service design. We use a variety of tools to do this, including Google Analytics.
(e) Interact with you
We use information that we collect, such as your email address, to communicate with you directly. For example, we may send you a notification to let you know about upcoming changes or improvements to our services, confirmation of content redeemed and answer customer service questions.
(f) Protect our users
We use information to help improve the safety and reliability of our services. This includes detecting, preventing, and responding to fraud and abuse, security risks and technical issues that could harm TFC International Ltd, our clients and our users. For some transactions you perform on our service, we use an external service provided by Threatmetrix to evaluate the risk around this transaction and make sure you are the person performing the transaction on your account. Risk evaluation data are deleted after six months.
6.4 SHARING your data?
Our services let you share information with other services or people, with your consent. Each time this will happen you will be prompted with information about the service before asking you to agree to it. For example, when you redeem an eMagazine we will ask you the email you use or will use for registering to the account with our partner Zinio. Storing that information will only allow us to ease the redemption process moving forward and not ask the same question twice. Your data stored by Zinio and our other content partners are regulated by their data policy. All the partners we work with comply with GDPR, so you can expect the same level of protection we offer you directly.
Should you post messages on our community, the information contained in your posting will be stored on our servers and will be openly available by other users on the platform.
We may share personal information outside TFC International Ltd. if we believe the disclosure of the information is necessary to:
(a) Meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request
(b) Enforce applicable Terms of Service
(c) Detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues
(d) Protect against harm to the rights of the right holder we work with as required or permitted by law
We may share non-personally identifiable information with our clients and partners to - for example - show trends about the general use of our service.
6.5 Keeping your data secure:
Our service is built with strong security features that continuously protect your information. It's our commitment that all of your personal data is encrypted before being stored. We partner with Salesforce.com for this storage so you benefit from their security features as well.
6.6 Access to your data:
You can access your data directly from your account on our service to:
(a) View your data: no need to wait, the information is always available through the My Downloads section of your Account
You can make the following requests regarding your data directly from your account on our service to:
(b) Request to download your data: you may request a copy of your data in Excel format
(c) Request to delete your data: implies closing your account with us. This will delete all your private data such as your name and email address but will not delete your transactions as our supplier partner need to be able to audit us at any time. Some or your rewards can be redownloaded, please make sure you do that before requesting to delete your account as you will not be able to do so after deleting your personal account information.
6.7 Data transfer:
We currently store all your personal data with Salesforce.com on servers located in the United States. We also backup your data from Salesforce.com into two other online storage services also located in the US. Data protection laws vary among countries, with some providing more protection than others. Currently as the European data protection laws provide the best protection to the user, we have decided to provide all our users on a worldwide basis all rights specified in the GDPR laws, such as the right for you to request access to, update, remove, and restrict the processing of your information. TFC International Ltd, fully complies with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).
The European Commission has determined that certain countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) like the United States, adequately protect personal data. To transfer data from the EEA to other countries, such as the United States, Salesforce.com and our two other online storage services must comply with legal frameworks that establish an equivalent level of protection with EU law.
