Social Media and Third Party Websites
Tactical Electronics uses some social media tools and websites to interact with its customers and resource partners. Social media websites are used to Tactical Electronics party websites to solicit and collect personal information from individuals. Any personal information collected by a third party website will not be transmitted to Tactical Electronics unless required for law enforcement purposes or as otherwise permitted by law.

The official Tactical Electronics “social media” sites are listed below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to tacticalelectronics.com choose to interact with Tactical Electronics in ways that require Tactical Electronics to gather personally-identifying information.
The amount and type of information that Tactical Electronics gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at tacticalelectronics.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Tactical Electronics – by requesting access to Tactical Electronics Training Aids, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including the necessary personal and work history information to confirm that only military and law enforcement personnel have access to the information for security purposes.
In each case, Tactical Electronics collects such information on tacticalelectronics.com only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Tactical Electronics. Tactical Electronics does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Tactical Electronics may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites by utilizing sites, such as Google Analytics, for the sole purposes of gaining information about tacticalelectronics.com customer and user base. For instance, Tactical Electronics may monitor the most popular webpages on tacticalelectronics.com. Tactical Electronics may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Tactical Electronics does not disclose personally-identifying information, but rather overview analytics of site activity.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Tactical Electronics discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Tactical Electronics behalf or to provide services available at Tactical Electronics’ website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Tactical Electronics’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Tactical Electronics will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Tactical Electronics discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Tactical Electronics believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Tactical Electronics, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of tacticalelectronics.com and have supplied your email address, Tactical Electronics may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Tactical Electronics and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Tactical Electronics takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Tactical Electronics, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Tactical Electronics goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Tactical Electronics may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
