During registration for Your Account, You will be required to provide basic information such as Your first and last name, organization, valid email address for Your organization, user role, and establish a password (“Account Information”). TGX will retain Account Information and associate it with Your Account.
For course participants, our servers automatically record information about Your use of the System, such as when You log in and submit answers to questions or provide feedback to the organization’s administrator.

Credit card information, including the card number, expiration date and security code, is securely collected by us and passed directly to our payment processor over a secure socket layer (see the section entitled “Payment Processor” below). Credit card data is not retained by TGX in any form.
