This policy specifically covers data that is collected by us. We are not responsible for, nor do we have control over, the use of data that is collected by customers and users of Tilma.

We use this information for creating and administering your account. We also may use this information to contact you and send you newsletters, or other information that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by clicking on the unsubscribe link in the emails, by contacting the Tilma customer you are associated with (e.g. your parish), or by contacting our support team at [email protected].
We also automatically collect information on how Tilma is accessed and used ("Usage Data"). This Usage Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol address (e.g. IP address), browser type, browser version, the pages that you use/visit, the time and date of your visit or use, the time spent on those pages or features of Tilma, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data. We use this data to analyze Tilma’s performance in order to make our services more effective.
Cookies are files with a small amount of data which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and stored on your device. Other tracking technologies are also used such as beacons, tags and scripts to collect and track information and to improve and analyze Tilma.
You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of Tilma. Examples of Cookies we use:
These cookies are essential to provide you with Tilma. For example, they allow you to log in.
These cookies allow us to remember choices you make, or to provide certain features, such as enabling videos from third parties.
These cookies are used to collect information about traffic to our Services and how users use our Services. For example, these cookies are used to determine if you viewed a page or opened an email. This helps to provide you with information that you find interesting.

There are a number ways to limit the cookies that your browser accepts or limit the way in which they’re used.
One way to limit cookies is by opting out of third party cookies/advertising networks, Google Analytics and the Digital Advertising Alliance.
