Toy Industry Association, Inc. (TIA™) is committed to providing a safe Cyber environment for parents, children and people who are interested in the U. S. toy industry. We respect your privacy, and would like you to know what is done with any information that we collect through our web site:
(e.g. ToyAssociation.org, ToyAwards.org, ToyInfo.org, andToyFairNY.org/ToyFairNY.com)
Our sites log certain activity of visitors (i.e., how many total visitors we have, what the most popular pages are, etc). However, that tracking is NOT done in such a way that it identifies the individual visitor … with one exception: in order to conduct the nomination and voting for the Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards, we use personal "cookies" to identify and monitor individuals and their voting activities on the ToyAwards.org site.
All personal information collected by TIA™ is securely stored, and will be used solely for identification and/or purposes stated when the information is requested. TIA™ will not sell, distribute or otherwise make available to third parties any information we collect on this site. Children, as always, are encouraged to check with their parents before providing any information on any web site they visit.
TIA™ aggregates information from all of its visitors into log files in order to measure the total number of visitors to the website and how many visit each area within it. This helps TIA™ to learn about which areas are most popular and should be expanded and which are least popular and should be reduced or eliminated. TIA™ does not belong to banner ad networks and does not access or allow access by other organizations. Currently TIA™ uses WebTrends software to collect information about visits to our website. Here is specific information about WebTrends:
Because your privacy is important to us, WebTrends conducts its business under the following principles:
Your payment and personal information is always safe. The applications used by TIA and our third party vendors that process credit card payments are PCI compliant and use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software that is the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure commerce transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read over the internet.
It is our policy that payments made for dues and exhibitor fees for Toy Fair and Fall Toy Preview are non-refundable. All registration fees for our trade shows are refundable up to six weeks prior to the event. Any cancellations made after that time are non-refundable.
