Who we are
The TLCA Community is a rich and vibrant one that brings people together for the love of their Toyotas. The Toyota Land Cruiser Association (TLCA) http://www.tlca.org/ takes privacy and the security of collected data seriously.
Anonymous Information Collected
An IP address is an anonymous string of numbers that identifies each computer using the internet (both human and bots). It is tracked on our website by the following entities for better security, products offered, and marketing purposes.
Your browser may also send response headers with generic/anonymized information about the type of browser, computer/device, and ISP you are using, and your location by country only.
Google Analytics – so we can determine the type of products and content you are most interested in and create more of this.
InMotion Hosting – kept in the server logs so the host can identify and stop bad bot attacks.
YouTube – if you view a YouTube embedded video on the site, the IP info is sent to YouTube to record that the video has been viewed, just as it would if you had watched it directly on YouTube.
Membership Data Collected
We collect your name, address, email, phone number, and Toyota vehicles owned. This information may be shared with TLCA chapter officers for the express purpose of contacting TLCA members in their local area. This information may be provided to Business Members for use in membership verification for TLCA discounts. This information will not be sold to any outside companies.
When visitors leave comments or reviews on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
