At TIL the privacy and security of our customers, third parties and visitors are of paramount importance. This privacy policy explains how TIL processes information that can be used to directly or indirectly identify the data subject through the use of its website and platform.

For the purposes of this policy, TIL wants to introduce new GDPR key definitions:

Controller: the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of processing are determined by EU or Member State laws, the controller (or the criteria for nominating the controller) may be designated by those laws.
