If you are resident in the EEA or Switzerland, Texas American , Inc. is the responsible party with respect to Personal Data (defined below) collected through the Services. Texas American LLC’s representative for European data protection law, US privacy Policies and California Privacy Policies is Texas American .
When you use or interact with us through the Services, we may collect Personal Data. Sometimes this will be on our own behalf and other times this will be on behalf of a client using our Services.
This is an important distinction for purposes of certain data protection laws and is explained in more detail below. 3.1 Information Collected From All Users.
Information you provide to us:
For all Users we collect Personal Data when you voluntarily provide such information to the Services, such as when you register for access to the Services, contact us with inquiries, respond to one of our surveys or browse or use certain parts of the Services.
The Personal Data we may collect includes without limitation your name, address, email address and any other information that you choose to provide and/or that enables Users to be personally identified. Information we automatically collect: We also automatically collect certain technical data that is sent to us from the computer, mobile device and/or browser through which you access the Services (“Automatic Data”).
When you register for the Services or otherwise submit Personal Data to us, we may associate other Non-Personal Data (including Non-Personal Data we collect from third parties) with your Personal Data. At such instance, we will treat any such combined data as your Personal Data until such time as it can no longer be associated with you or used to identify you.
Information Collected From Consumers. If you are a Consumer we will collect additional Personal Data from you, sometimes for our own purposes and other times on behalf of an Organizer (see Section 16 below for more information).
Information you provide via Texas American Properties or Applications: If you register for a paid service, you will provide financial information (e.g., your credit card number and expiration date, billing address, etc.) some of which may constitute Personal Data. In addition, Organizers can set up event registration pages to collect virtually any information from Consumers in connection with registration for an Organizer’s event listed on the Services. Texas American does not control an Organizer’s registration process nor the Personal Data that they collect.
When you register for, or otherwise provide information to Texas American in conjunction with an Organizer event or activity, whether that information is yours or a third party’s, in connection with a purchase, registration, or transfer, that Organizer will receive and may use the information you provide. Information we obtain from other sources: We may also collect or receive Personal Data from third party sources, such as Organizers, other Consumers, social media or other third party integrations, your credit card issuing bank, our payment processing partners or other third parties.
For instance, if you supply Personal Data relating to your identity or qualifications to use certain portions of the Services, we will use that information to make a decision as to granting you access to use such Services and to assess your ongoing qualification to use such Services. Internal Business Purposes. We may use your Personal Data for internal business purposes, including without limitation, to help us improve the content and functionality of the Services, to better understand our Users, to improve the Services, to protect against, identify or address wrongdoing, to enforce our Terms of Service, to manage your account and provide you with customer service, and to generally manage the Services and our business. Texas American Marketing. We may use your Personal Data for our marketing and advertising purposes, including (without limitation) by email, SMS marketing, display media, and targeting other devices (such as tablets, mobile devices and televisions).
We do this in order to inform you about services or events we believe might be of interest to you, develop promotional or marketing materials and display Texas American or related content and advertising on or off the Services that we believe might be of interest to you. We may also do this on behalf of a Customer, for example where your prior interactions with a customer suggest you may be interested in a particular type of service. See “Opt Out from Electronic Communications” below on how to opt out of various Texas American marketing communications. You may see advertisements for our Services on third party websites, including on social media platforms.
Where you see an advertisement on a third party website or social media platform, this may be because we engaged the third party or social media platform to show this advertisement to our Users, or to others who have similar attributes to our Users. In some cases, this involves sharing your email address or other contact details with the third party or social media platform so that they can identify you as one of our Users, or identify other individuals with similar attributes to you in order to show them advertisements for our Services. If you no longer want your Personal Data to be used for these purposes please contact us at sales@Texas American.com.
Customer Emails. We allow customers to use our email tools to contact records, so you may receive emails from our system that originate with such customers and that we send on their behalf. If you registered for an event on the Services, your email address is available to that customer. However, customers may also import the email addresses they have from external sources and send communications through the Services to those email addresses, and we will deliver those communications to those email addresses on the customer’s behalf. The customer and not Texas American is responsible for sending these emails. See “Opt Out from Electronic Communications” below on how to opt out of Organizerinitiated communications. Use of Interest-Based Data We sometimes make inferences about the type of services you may be interested in. We may use these inferences to help target advertising or customize recommendations to you, including on behalf of customers. Other Purposes.
Agents, Consultants and Service Providers. We may share your Personal Data with our contractors and service providers who process Personal Data on behalf of Texas American to perform certain business-related functions.
These companies include our marketing agencies, online advertising providers, data enhancement and data services providers, database service providers, backup and disaster recovery service providers, email service providers, payment processing partners, customer support, tech support, hosting companies and others.
When we engage another company to perform such functions, we may provide them with information, including Personal Data, in connection with their performance of such functions. Organizers. In addition, when you input your Personal Data (such as through a web form) to communicate with a customer, that customer will receive that information.
Other third parties that are involved in or on whose behalf an event or activity is promoted, may receive that Personal Data as well. For example, as to fundraising pages, we may provide your Personal Data both to the Organizer charity of the fundraising page and the Organizer of the event to which the fundraising page is linked. In some instances, an Organizer may appoint a third party, which may or may not be affiliated with the Organizer, to create an event or fundraising page on its behalf (we call these third parties (“Third Party Organizers”).
For example, and without limitation, a concert venue (the Organizer, in this case) may allow third party promoters or production companies (the Third Party Organizers) to create events that will be hosted at the Organizer’s venue using its Texas American account. In that case, we may provide your Personal Data to the Third Party Organizers on behalf of the Organizers.
The same is true for contests and sweepstakes: we may provide your Personal Data to both the Organizer promoting the contest or sweepstakes, and any legal sponsor of the contest or sweepstakes (such as a brand sponsor). We are not responsible for the actions of these Organizers, or their Third Party Organizers (or other downstream recipients of your Personal Data), with respect to your Personal Data. It is important that you review the applicable policies of the Organizers, and if applicable and available, their appointed Third Party Organizers, of an event (and the related fundraising page, if applicable) before providing Personal Data or other information in connection with that event or related fundraising page.
We likewise may collect your information if you sign up for one of our promotions or submit information to us through social media sites. c. Facebook Plug-Ins and Links on Our Pages. Texas American LLC’s own website may contain links to Facebook as well, such as through the Facebook “Like” or “Share” button or other social plug-ins. When you interact with these features and links, your browser will establish a direct link with the Facebook servers, and Facebook will receive information about your browser and activity, and may link it to your Facebook user account. For more information about how Facebook uses data, please see Facebook’s own policies. d. Additional Facebook Marketing and Connectivity. In addition, if you are a member of Facebook (or another social media platform), and you provide Personal Data to a customer, the customer may use that Personal Data to send you advertising and offers through Facebook (or another social media) platform, including when you are on Facebook or another social media platform. The customer may work with us and with third parties to enable this data integration and advertising. Facebook and other social media platforms may provide a way to opt out of this type of advertising. Please review their user settings and support pages to learn more about how they help you to manage privacy and marketing choices. e. Third party services and integrations.
Texas American may provide you with opportunities to contract directly with third parties, and/or to integrate with third party services or applications, through our platform. In such instances, we will disclose your Personal Data to other entities in order to fulfill a request by you, or to provide services you have requested. 5.7 Legal Requirements. We may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law in order to (for example) respond to a subpoena or request from law enforcement, a court or a government agency (including in response to public authorities to meet national security or law enforcement requirements), or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) comply with a legal obligation, (b) protect or defend our rights, interests or property or that of third parties, (c) prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with the Services, (d) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Users of the Services or the public, or (e) protect against legal liability.

Both registered and unregistered Users may also exercise these rights by contacting us directly by email or at the address specified below. If a customer initiates a data deletion request, Texas American is authorized to delete or anonymize Personal Data of the requesting Consumer from the Services even if that means removing its availability to the customer through the Services. However, if you are a Consumer, you understand that even if Texas American deletes or anonymizes your Personal Data upon your request or pursuant to this Policy, your Personal Data may still be available in the customer’s own databases if transmitted to the customer prior to Texas American receiving or taking action on any deletion or anonymization activity.
If you choose not to provide any Personal Data or limit the Personal Data you provide, you may not be able to use certain functionality of the Services. Opt Out from Electronic Communications. (a) Texas American Marketing Communications. Where it is in accordance with your marketing preferences, Texas American may send you electronic communications marketing or advertising the Services themselves or events on the Services, to the extent you have registered for the Services. You can also “opt out” of receiving these electronic communications by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any such electronic communication. In addition, you may also manage your email preferences at any time by logging in (or signing up and then logging in), clicking on “Account” and then “Email Preferences.” (b) Customer-initiated Communications. Customers may use our email tools to send electronic communications to those on their email subscription lists, including Consumers who have registered for their communications in the past. Although these electronic communications are sent through our system, Texas American does not determine the content or the recipients of these electronic communications. Customers are required to use our email tools only in accordance with all applicable laws. Texas American provides an “Unsubscribe” link on each of these emails, which allows recipients to “opt out” of electronic communications from the particular customer. (c) Social Notifications. If you connect your Facebook account or sign up for other social media integrations whose product features include social notifications (i.e., updates on what your friends are doing on the Services), you will receive these social notifications.
You can manage these social notifications by toggling your social settings to private or disconnecting such integration. (d) Transactional or Responsive Communications. Certain electronic communications from Texas American are responsive to your requests. As an example, if you email our customer support department, we will return your email. Notwithstanding any unsubscribe election that you have made, you will still receive these transactional or responsive emails. You can stop receiving these types of emails only by contacting us. By electing to stop receiving all electronic communications from us or through our system, you will no longer receive any updates.
The legal grounds for us processing your Personal Data for the purposes set out in Section 4 above will typically be because:
• you provided your consent;
• it is necessary for our contractual relationship;
• the processing is necessary for us to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations; and/or
• the processing is in our legitimate interest as a technology solutions company Transfers of Personal Data As Texas American is a global company, we may need to transfer your Personal Data outside of the country from which it was originally provided.

Whenever we transfer Personal Data outside of the EEA, Switzerland or the UK, we take legally required steps to make sure that appropriate safeguards are in place to protect your Personal Data. For Personal Data we receive from the EEA, Switzerland and the UK, Texas American , Inc has certified its compliance to the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal data transferred from those countries.

Your rights.

You can exercise these rights by contacting us at sales@Texas American.com. Please note that requests to exercise data protection rights will be assessed by us on a case-by-case basis.
There may be circumstances where we are not legally required to comply with your request because of the laws in your jurisdiction or because of exemptions provided for in data protection legislation. If you have a complaint about how we handle your Personal Data, please get in touch with us. If you are not happy with how we have attempted to resolve your complaint, you may contact the relevant data protection authority.
Texas American as a data controller and a data processor EU data protection law makes a distinction between organizations that process Personal Data for their own purposes (known as “data controllers”) and organizations that process personal data on behalf of other organizations (known as “data processors”). If you have a question or complaint about how your Personal Data is handled, these should always be directed to the relevant data controller since they are the ones with primary responsibility for your Personal Data. Texas American may act as either a data controller or a data processor in respect of your Personal Data, depending on the circumstances. For example, if you create an account with us, Texas American will be a data controller in respect of the Personal Data that you provide as part of your account.
We will also be a data controller of the Personal Data that we have obtained about the use of the Applications or Texas American Properties, which could relate to customers or Consumers.
We use this to conduct research and analysis to help better understand and serve Users of the Services as well as to improve our platform and provide you with more targeted recommendations about events we think may be of interest to you. Texas American does not decide what Personal Data to request on registration forms, nor is it responsible for the continued accuracy any Personal Data provided.
Any questions that you may have relating to your Personal Data and your rights under data protection law should therefore be directed to the customer as the data controller, not to Texas American .
