We collect and have access only to information that you voluntarily give us via email, webforms, or other direct contact from you. This may include your name, address, email address, and/or phone number. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number on our website. You may also contact us to see what data we have about you or to change, correct or delete any data we have about you.
When you access or interact with Tamarisk through social media such as Facebook or Instagram, we may have visibility to your profile name and other information made public in connection with that social media platform.
Social media companies may also collect and share anonymous aggregate metrics with us regarding audience behavior, platform use, engagement (clicks, shares, etc), and demographics (age range, gender, approximate location). These social media companies are not operated by Tamarisk; use of their services is governed by their own privacy policies.
Cookies are small text files that track how computers interact with websites in order to make the user’s experience more efficient, enable basic functions like page navigation, and to analyze traffic on our site. They are used to track usage patterns, traffic trends and customer behavior, as well as to record other information from the Website. Many content adjustments and customer service improvements are made based on the data derived from cookies.
Tamarisk uses Google Analytics, a third-party vendor, to place cookies and analyze the information collected to make our website more useful to our visitors. No personally identifiable information is collected. Information is only collected in aggregate form.
Web Beacons and Pixels
Tamarisk also collects non-personally identifiable information through the use of tracking pixels that appear on our website. A tracking pixel is a transparent graphic image (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that is placed on a web page and, in combination with a cookie, allows us to collect information regarding the use of the web page that contains the tracking pixel.
We use tracking pixels to trigger ads on participating websites and social media based on activity tracked from the browser on a device used to visit the Tamarisk website. We also use them to tell when an advertisement we run on another website has been clicked on by Tamarisk website visitors, and use that information to judge which advertisements are more appealing to users.
To opt out of these tracking pixels and services, please follow this link to opt out of the Google Analytics-based tools (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/) and the Facebook Pixel (https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads).
Tamarisk will take reasonable steps to protect the information provided through this site from loss, disclosure, or unauthorized access. Wherever we collect information, it is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page. You should understand, however, that no transmission over the Internet is ever fully secure.
While we use encryption to protect information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information such as email addresses. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
