7. Transferring Personal Information from the EU to the US


TGE is headquartered in the United States. Information you provide to us or we collect from you will be processed in the United States. The United States is not currently considered by the EU to provide an adequate level of data protection. TGE therefore relies on exceptions listed in the GDPR. In particular, we collect and transfer your personal information to the United States only: with your consent; to perform services under the contracts we have in place with you; or to fulfill compelling legitimate interest of TGE that does not outweigh your rights or freedoms. TGE strives to apply suitable safeguards to protect the privacy and security of your personal information and to use it only as described in this Policy. We also enter into data processing agreements and standing contractual clauses with our vendors, whenever feasible and appropriate. For more information regarding the GDPR and data transfers, click here.


8. Do Not Track Requests


TGE may use a number of third party analytics and service providers to help us evaluate your use of the Products; compile statistical reports on activity and improve the content on the Products, as well as the Products’ performance. We only use these third-party analytics providers on certain areas of the Products. We currently do not respond to your browser’s Do Not Track signal, and we do not permit third parties other than our analytics and service providers to track TGE users’ activities over time on the Products. We do not track your online browsing activity on other online services over time.

  • To contractors, service providers, and other third parties we use to support our business.
  • To a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of TGE’s assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by TGE about our Website users is among the assets transferred.
  • To third parties to market their products or services to you if you have not opted out of these disclosures. For more information, see Section 6.

10. Your Rights With Respect to Your Personal Information


Depending on the location from where you access the Products, you may have the right to access, be in formed, rectify/correct, object, delete, or restrict use of certain personal information covered by this Policy and exercise all other rights set forth in Articles 15-22 of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). You may also have the right to request that we refrain from processing your personal information. You may also have the right to revoke TGE’s access to Google data via the Google security settings page. Please bear in mind that if you exercise such rights this may affect TGE’s ability to provide our services. For inquiries about your personal information, please contact us. Although we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request, we reserve the right to impose certain restrictions and requirements on such requests, if allowed or required by applicable laws. Please note that it may take some time to process your request.


We may access, preserve and share your information in response to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order, or subpoena) if we have good faith belief that applicable law requires us to do so. This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States where we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law in that applicable jurisdiction, affects users in that applicable jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards. We may also access, preserve and share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud and other illegal activity; to protect ourselves, you and others, including as part of investigations; or to prevent death or imminent bodily harm. For example, we may provide information to third-party partners about the reliability of your account to prevent fraud and abuse on and off of our Products. Information we receive about you, including financial transaction data related to purchases made through our Products, may be accessed, processed and retained for an extended period of time when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations concerning possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent harm. We also may retain information from accounts disabled for violations of our terms for at least a year to prevent repeat abuse or other violations of our terms.


In general, federal law does not allow private parties to obtain the content of communications and certain information (e.g., messages, posts, videos, pictures, streams) using subpoenas. See the Stored Communications Act, 18 U.S.C. § 2701 et seq. Stored messages, emails, and other content of communications are generally prohibited from disclosure, subject to certain exceptions under 18 U.S.C. § 2702. However, TGE may provide any available basic subscriber information (not content) where the requested information is indispensable to the case, and not within a party’s possession upon personal service of a valid subpoena or court order and after notice to affected account holders. Basic subscriber information does not include content (e.g. messages, posts, videos, pictures, streams) but may include, and is not limited to, a user’s name, address, telephone number, email address, date of birth, account information, and any other information identifying a subscriber of TGE or its Products.


Unless an exception is applicable in which TGE is obligated to disclose user information and content of communications, requesting parties must also demonstrate that they have exhausted all other avenues of obtaining the information it seeks, such as requesting a voluntary release from the individual user or obtaining a valid court order authorizing the release of records. Upon TGE’s receipt of a subpoena or court order arising from a legal proceeding, TGE will provide notice to the individual user of the request, and give the individual user an opportunity to challenge the subpoena or court order themselves. Any such subpoena or court order should be limited in scope to seek basic subscriber information only, and set our specific accounts of TGE or its Products at issue by identifying them by their URL or TGE user ID. Names, birthdays, locations and other information are insufficient.


11. Accessing and Correcting Your Information


You can review and change your personal information by contacting us or updating through our Website if an account has been created. You may also send us an email at to request access to, correct or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. We cannot delete your personal information except by also deleting your user account if one exists. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.


If you delete your User Contributions from the Website, copies of your User Contributions may remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or might have been copied or stored by other Products users. Proper access and use of information provided on the Products, including User Contributions, is governed by our Terms of Use. California residents may have additional personal information rights and choices. Please see Section 12 more information.


12. Your California Privacy Rights


We do not offer services in California currently. However, if you are a California resident, California law may provide you with additional rights regarding our use of your personal information. Among other additional rights, California residents have a right to opt out of the sale or sharing of their personal information by a business. To request a “Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information”, please send an email request to To learn more about your California privacy rights, visit CCPA Privacy Notice to California Residents.


California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of our Products that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. As a California resident, and subject to certain exceptions, you have the right to know about personal information we collect and how it is shared; the right to delete personal information collected by us; the right to opt-out of the sale or sharing of your personal information; the right to non-discrimination in exercising your CCPA rights; the right to correct inaccurate personal information collected; and the right to limit the use and disclosure of sensitive personal information collected.

13. Data Security


We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers behind firewalls. TGE user’s personally identifiable information will be encrypted. We use a third-party payment provider to process all payments. We do not directly store any payment information.


The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Products, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Products like message boards. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Products.


Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Products. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website.


14. Changes to This Privacy Policy


It is our policy to post any changes we make to our privacy policy on this page. If we make material changes to how we treat our users’ personal information, we will notify you through a notice on the Products home page.
