TSRA realizes how important privacy is to our membership. Therefore, we have adopted the following policy to advise you of your choices regarding the use of your personal information online. This policy describes what types of information we gather about you, how we use it, under what circumstances we disclose it to third parties, and how you can update it.
We gather certain broad information about website use including the number of unique visitors, the frequency with which they visit, and the programs and services preferred. We look at the data in summary form, rather than on an individual basis. We gather this information so we can learn how many people visit TSRA sites, which pages are the most and least viewed, and which websites are referring visitors to our sites. We use this information to help us in restructuring sites to meet our members’ needs. TSRA sites do not respond to “Do Not Track” signals.
TSRA sites and services are intended for general audiences and do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under 13 years of age. We are committed to complying fully with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998. Of course, the TSRA also encourages parents to discuss privacy issues with their children.
We compile lists for communications and marketing purposes. We will provide that information to TSRA affinity partners who we believe provide goods and/or services that might be useful to TSRA members. Contracts with these companies require them to keep the member information strictly confidential and prohibit them from using it for any other purpose. You may ask us to remove you from the lists by: (1) emailing from our Contact Us page; (2) calling us at 1-512-615-4200; or (3) writing to us at Texas State Rifle Association, PO Box 1090, Del Valle, Texas 78617. We do not provide member information to telemarketers, mailing list brokers, or other companies that are not offering TSRA-endorsed services or benefits. Third parties do not collect personally identifiable information about the online activities of individuals who visit TSRA sites.
The TSRA online network utilizes a standard technology called a “cookie” to collect information about how our sites are used. Cookies are small strings of text stored on your computer’s hard drive by a Web server. For example, session cookies identify your computer during a particular session to track the items you have placed in your “shopping cart” during a visit to our online stores.
We collect and analyze traffic on our websites by keeping track of the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of our visitors.
You may be asked to provide different types of personal information, including your name, date of birth, email address, mailing address or telephone number. Particular services may request storage of additional information such as your billing address, credit card number and expiration date. Credit card information is stored in an encrypted state on our credit card processor’s site, and not on tsra.com. For example, we may ask for information to process your membership application, facilitate an online store purchase, or register for one of our events. There are also optional opportunities for you to share your preferences and interests.
Control of Personal Information
We also use your information to send you notices in the mail or by email about special member benefits, discounts and offers. If you do not wish to receive mailings, you can: (1) opt out of email lists immediately by following the instructions at the bottom of each email; (2) email us using our Contact Us page, (3) call us at 1-512-615-4200; or (4) write to us at Texas State Rifle Association, PO Box 1090, Del Valle, Texas 78617.
Editing Your Personal Information
Ways you can edit or update your personal information: (1) visiting www.tsra.com/My Account Enter your member number or email address and password (if you have logged in since February 1, 2019). If you have not yet logged in or forgotten your password, click on Lost your password? and an email will be sent to your email address to reset your password. (2) calling us at 1-512-615-4200; or (3) writing to us at Texas State Rifle Association, PO Box 1090, Del Valle, Texas 78617.
