Cookies are small pieces of information which are issued to your computer when you visit a website and which store and sometimes track information about your use of the Service. TB uses cookies to help recognize you as a repeated visitor, to improve the quality of our Service, and to try and make your browsing experience meaningful. When you enter our Site, our web server sends a cookie to your computer which allows us to recognize your computer but not specifically who is using it. By associating the identification numbers in the cookies with other customer information when, for example, you log-in to the Service, then we know that the cookie information relates to you. Some of the cookies used by our Service are served by us, and some are served by third parties who are delivering services on our behalf. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but, if you prefer, you can change your browser to prevent that or to notify you each time a cookie is set.

TB wants to communicate with you only if you want to hear from us. TB tries to keep emails to a minimum and gives you the ability to opt out when we can. TB will send you email relating to your personal transactions. You will also receive certain email notifications, for which you may opt-out. The TB may send you service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so.
