What personal data do we collect?
Personal data is information that identifies you as an individual. TeleTech collects certain types of personal data at http://www.teletech.com (our "website") and offline in connection with the services we provide.
We collect personal data from you, such as your name, postal address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number or other payment account number, only when you voluntarily provide it to us. In order for you to take advantage of particular opportunities provided by us (for example, to subscribe to our newsletter, request information from us), we may require that you furnish personal data.

What About "Cookies"?
The term "cookie" refers to files that are transferred from a website to your computer's hard drive. The purpose of cookies is to enable us to track your activities on our website. Cookies help us remember who you are. They work in the same fashion as the clerk in a store you visit on a regular basis. The store clerk may not necessarily know your name, but he or she recognizes that you have been in the store before and may remember what you usually purchase while you are in the store. Cookies permit us to gain the same kind of information about you and enable us to provide you with more efficient and personalized service. For example, for sites that require registration, a cookie file can be stored on your computer enabling you to skip the registration process on subsequent visits. Cookies are also frequently used to track the progression of a customer engaged in an online purchase to make sure that the transactional information remains intact.
Some (usually newer) versions of Web browsers allow you to decide whether or not to accept cookie files and some programs notify you when a website is about to deposit a cookie file on your hard drive. If you decide not to accept cookies, you may not be able to successfully navigate some portions of a website.
Will we share your personal data with outside parties?
TeleTech may store, use, and disclose personal information as authorized or required by applicable law, including making disclosures that are necessary or advisable to: (1) protect the rights, health, safety, or property of TeleTech or others; (2) to perform analysis that we may use to improve our website or services; (3) allow for lawful security related investigations or law enforcement investigations; and (4) comply with applicable laws, regulations, or other lawful requirements.
