General information & legal governance
TWR is committed to protecting your online privacy while providing you with the most useful and enjoyable Web experience possible. While you can use many features of our site anonymously, you are required to provide personal information to make donations or to request that we send you information or materials. For international users, please note that it may be necessary to transfer your information internationally and, in particular, your information may be transferred to and processed in the United States.
Your privacy is extremely important to us, and we will do everything possible to protect it. To that end, TWR maintains an opt-in policy for its email communications. That means we only send email to individuals who have requested to receive our emails or to people with whom we have an ongoing relationship.
Please note that all email that we send you has the provision to unsubscribe built-in so that you can change your mind at any time. And you can be assured that we will not share your email address with others, nor will we ever sell or rent your email address to anyone.
How we collect and use personal information
If you respond to an offer, we must ask for your postal address so we can deliver the requested materials. We will not share your information obtained on this website with any third-party organizations.
When making an online donation or purchasing resources, the personal data you enter on TWR's site is encrypted with secure server software (Secure Sockets Layer SSL padlock in browser window) that encodes the information before your Web browser software sends it to us. Your information remains encrypted while it is sent to us and is decoded only after it reaches our server, meaning hackers cannot obtain any of your personal information while it is in transit.
Once the data reaches our site, the same state-of-the-art security software we use to guard all of our company's essential business data protects your personal data as well. After your purchase or donation has entered our system, your credit-card information is purged. TWR does not keep a copy of your credit-card number on file.
In addition to using the most secure technology available, we work tirelessly to make sure that we use any information you provide us only in ways you have approved.
What we provide to third parties
TWR does not distribute or provide any third-party access to your personal information except upon your request or to facilitate your own attempts to request materials from third-party sources.
If you are not satisfied with an item received from us, you may return it within 30 days of receipt. We will be happy to send you a replacement item or issue a refund, whichever you prefer. Return shipping fees are not refundable unless the item(s) was incorrectly shipped, received damaged or defective.
