  1. Cookies

Cookies” are small text files containing pieces of data that are placed in your computer's Web browser to store your preferences.

A Cookie will typically contain the name of the domain (Internet location) from which the Cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the Cookie (its expiration period), and a value (such as a randomly generated unique number).

How We Use Cookies

Threshold 360 and its agents use Cookies so that we can improve your online experience – for example, by remembering you when you come back to visit or access the Services, and making the content you see more relevant to you. Cookies also enable us to track online purchases made through the Services.

Your Options for Cookies

Web browsers allow some control of most Cookies. Please consult your particular Web browser’s settings. You can learn more about Cookies, see what Cookies have been set on your computing device and learn how to manage and delete them at http://allaboutcookies.org.

Online Advertising

Threshold 360 also uses Cookies and other technologies such as pixel tags, web beacons and clear GIF files, to help manage our online advertising program. These technologies are provided by our advertising management partners (“Ad Partners”) and enable them to recognize a unique Cookie that has been placed on your Web browser, which in turn enables us and these Ad Partners to learn which advertisements bring users to the Services.

Threshold 360 and Ad Partners also may use these technologies to track the actions of users of the Services, to measure statistics of our marketing efforts, and to deliver advertisements via the Services that may be more relevant to individual consumers and to otherwise improve the consumer experience using the Services. For example, if you have given Threshold 360 your zip code, Threshold 360 may deliver to you advertisements that are specific to promotions in your area.

*Please note: You must opt in (i.e., expressly consent) to receive text messages from Threshold 360. Any such opt-in will be subject to this Privacy Policy and Threshold 360 will only send you such text messages if you opt in to receive them from us.

  1. How We May Disclose Personal Information We Collect

Your privacy is very important to us. We generally won't disclose your Personal Information to anyone outside of Threshold 360, except in the following circumstances:

Consent

We may share your Personal Information with outside companies, organizations or individuals when we have your consent to do so. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive Personal Information.

Service Providers

We may disclose your Personal Information to third-party service providers to provide us with services such as website or mobile application hosting, professional services, including information technology services and related infrastructure, customer service, e-mail delivery, auditing and other similar services.

Affiliates

We may disclose Personal Information to those companies that are under our control (collectively, “Affiliates”) as well as to our marketing partners and vendors for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, including for marketing purposes, and to be consistent with our goal of providing our users, visitors, and business or location owners with a superior product and service experience.

To Perform Services You Request or Communications You Initiate

We may disclose your Personal Information to third parties to perform services you request or functions you initiate, such as when you post information and materials on message boards and social media forums, including our Facebook Page and any other social media platforms or channels. Please note, that when you post information in a public forum it becomes public information.

In addition, we may disclose your Personal Information to identify you to anyone to whom you send communications through the Services.

Corporate Changes

We may disclose your information to a third party in connection with a corporate reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of our business, assets or stock, including in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings.

Other Legal Reasons

In addition, Threshold 360 may use or disclose your Personal Information if Threshold 360 believes in good faith that it is necessary or appropriate:

  1. How We May Use and Disclose Other Information We Collect

Similarly, Threshold 360 generally may use Other Information for any purpose not prohibited by law. In particular, Threshold 360 may collect, compile, store, publish, promote, report, sell, or otherwise disclose or use any Other Information, as long such information does not personally identify you. Other Information that we collect generally will not personally identify you or be correlated to you individually for external purposes. Threshold 360 may share such Other Information publicly and with our partners – like publishers, advertisers or connected sites, to demonstrate trends in the use of our Services and for other purposes.

Where Threshold 360 combines Other Information with Personal Information in a way that can identify you or be used to identify you personally, we will treat that information as Personal Information, subject to the provisions of this Privacy Policy.

  1. Your Options

You may review your Account information via our Services by requesting an electronic copy of your personal information via email, by emailing privacy@threshold360.com. You may then request the update of certain information and adjust certain privacy preferences, which may include exercising control over how you share certain Personal Information, opting out of certain Threshold 360-offered features, adjusting how your profile and related information appears to others, and selectin from certain other options.

In addition, you may set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with the Services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, please keep in mind that many of our features (such as remembering your preferences) may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.

When you use the Services, Threshold 360 strives to provide you with access to your Personal Information to the extent feasible. If you notify us that your information is wrong, Threshold 360 will attempt to offer you options for quickly updating or deleting it – unless Threshold 360 needs to keep that information for legitimate business, legal or other purposes. For your protection, when you seek to update your Personal Information, Threshold 360 may require you to verify your identity before Threshold 360 can act on such request.

Of course, Threshold 360 may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), threaten the privacy of others, or are extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems).

Where Threshold 360 can provide information access and modification or deletion, Threshold 360 will endeavor to do so without charge, unless fulfilling the request would require a disproportionate effort by Threshold 360. Threshold 360 constantly strive to maintain our Services in a secure manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, if you delete information from the Services, Threshold 360 may not immediately delete residual copies from its active servers and may not remove information from its backup systems.

In addition, to the extent that the Services facilitate the sharing of information with other people, remember that information you share publicly may indexable by search engines.

  1. How We Protect Your Personal Information

Threshold 360 has implemented reasonable safeguards designed to prevent loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure or modification of Personal Information provided or collected through the Services. With respect to billing information (if any) and other Personal Information collected through the Services, we use Secure Socket Layer Technology or SSL to encrypt or scramble that information during transmission. In addition, Threshold 360 reviews our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems, and we restrict access to Personal Information to Threshold 360 employees, contractors, vendors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for Threshold 360, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and appropriate consequences if they fail to meet these obligations.

Unfortunately, no system or online transmission of data can be guaranteed to be 100% secure and you should always take appropriate security measures to protect your Personal Information, including ensuring that you have up-to-date antivirus software. If you believe that your Account or any information you provided to us is no longer secure, please notify us immediately through the Contact Us information provided below.

  1. Social Networking and Third Party Sites

When you link to the Services through any social networking or third party websites, applications or services (“Third Party Sites”), please remember that you are also bound by the privacy policies of such Third Party Sites, and Threshold 360 does not control and therefore is not responsible for the privacy practices of such Third Party Sites, whether including Third Party Sites that link to, or are linked from, the Services, or that may advertise the Services, including Third Party Sites that use cookies, pixel tags and other technologies to serve and offer relevant ads. You should consult the privacy policy of such Third Party Sites to understand their information practices.

  1. Your California Privacy Rights
