					TM Media Group, LLC., Privacy Policy

If you have questions or concerns regarding this statement, you should first contact TM Media Group, LLC by
emailing info@ and writing "Privacy Policy" in the subject line.

The first thing to remember about privacy is that there is only so much information that any website can collect
without your answering of specific questions. TM Media Group, LLC web sites log IP addresses (in other words, the
location of your computer on the Internet) for system administration, troubleshooting, and to examine overall traffic
trends. (For example, IP addresses help us determine the percentage of people coming from various online
gateways, such as Yahoo! or America Online.) This information, in aggregate form, is recorded for administrative
purposes only. IP addresses are not linked to any personal information.

TM Media Group web sites use a cookie, a small data file stored on your computer, to customize portions of our site
to your preferences. For example, Sumner County uses a cookie to identify you as a member and to
make sure that only you have access to, for example, your own personal settings. This way, you answer certain
questions only once and not every time you participate in an activity or event. The cookie by itself doesn't tell us, or
anyone else, who you are, what your email address is, or anything else personal. You provide that information when
you register with Sumner County, and only TM Media Group has access to that information. If you choose
set up your browser to reject all cookies, please understand that you may be limited to some the areas or functionality
within our site.

You can browse all TM Media Group websites and read our editorial content without registering or providing any
personal information. However, in order to take advantage of our personalized services, you are required to provide
us with information such as your name, email address, real-world address, etc. We collect similar information from
users who choose to participate in our contests and promotional events. We always let you know before we collect
any personal information from you.

Information we collect from your membership helps us to improve our content, customize certain pages for you, and
update you about our websites. From time to time, TM Media Group does share names, postal addresses, and
demographic information with other pre-screened organizations that have specific direct mail product and service
offers we think may be of interest to you. You may choose at any time to remove your name and address from these
mailing lists by editing your privacy preferences (see paragraph below) or by letting us know via email
to (please include your name, address, and email).

You can access or update your personal information, including subscriptions to our email newsletters, at any time. To
unsubscribe, you can email us at (please include your name, address, email and the
product that you would like to be removed from). If you would like to deactivate you membership with any TM Media
Group site, you should contact us by emailing and writing "Deactivate Membership" in
the subject line (please include your name, address, email).

All TM Media Group Websites contain links to other websites. We cannot be responsible for their content or for
private information that you may choose to share with them. Please note: Information you release directly to parties
who provide services to our websites, such as any vendors in “The Sumner County Resource Center” or
other sites you encounter on the Internet (even sites that are co-branded with TM Media Group companies) may be
subject to different rules of use or disclosure. We encourage you to investigate and ask questions before disclosing
personal information to third parties.

Your privacy is very important to us, but due to the existing legal regulatory and security environment, we cannot fully
ensure that your private communications and other personally identifiable information will not be disclosed to third
parties. Under certain circumstances, the government or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access
transmissions or private communications. Additionally, in the unlikely event we need to investigate or resolve possible
problems or inquiries, we can disclose any information about you to private entities, law enforcement, or other
government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate.

Finally, we use industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information, such
as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers (SSL) where appropriate. We also do everything in our power to protect user-
information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in
our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a Content Editor) are
granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our
security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified
and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers'
information is protected.

We hope this policy clarifies our procedures regarding your personal information. If you have any questions about the
security at our website, you can send an email to

Though we make every effort to preserve your privacy we may need to disclose personal information when required
by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding,
a court order or legal process served on our Web site.
