1.1. On various Threshold web pages Customer can order services, make requests, and register to receive materials or support. The types of personal information collected at these pages are name, username, contact and billing information, transaction, and credit card information. Data collected online may also be combined with information provided during ownership registration of Threshold products and services. In order to tailor subsequent communications and continuously improve products and services, Threshold may ask Customer to voluntarily provide information regarding Customer’s personal or professional interests, demographics, product experience, and contact information.
1.3. Threshold uses Customer’s information to better understand customer needs and continuously improve the level of service provided. Specifically, Customer’s information is used to help complete a transaction, to communicate back to Customer, to update Customer on service and benefits, and to personalize Threshold’s web site. Credit card numbers are used only for payment processing and are not utilized for other purposes.
1.4. From time to time, Threshold may use Customer’s information to contact Customer for market research or to provide Customer with information thought to be of particular interest. At a minimum, Customer will have the opportunity to opt out of receiving such direct marketing or market research contact. Where applicable, Threshold will also follow local requirements such as allowing Customer to opt out from receiving an unsolicited contact.
1.5. Threshold strives to keep Customer’s personally identifiable information accurate. Every effort is made to provide Customer with online access to Customer’s registration data so that Customer may update or correct Customer’s information at any time. Threshold is committed to ensuring the security of Customer’s information. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, appropriate procedures are in place to safeguard and secure the information collected online. Threshold uses encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information.
1.6. Threshold may also collect certain non-personally identifiable information when Customer visits Threshold’s website. Threshold accomplishes this through the use of “cookies” or tracking mechanisms that collect this type of information. If Customer does not want this to happen or wants to know when it does happen, Customer’s browser should be set to warn Customer or to block cookies (although blocking cookies may affect Customer’s use of certain sites). In addition, Threshold or others may use small bits of code called “one-pixel gifs” or “clear gifs” embedded in some web pages to make cookies more effective.
1.7. Threshold has put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information Threshold collects online. However, no transmission of data over the Internet is guaranteed to be completely secure. While Threshold strives to protect Customer’s information, Threshold cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information Customer transmits to Threshold. Any such transmission is done at Customer’s own risk. Neither people nor security systems are foolproof, and people can commit intentional crimes, make mistakes or fail to follow policies. Although Threshold takes certain precautions, Threshold does not guarantee security. Additionally, it may be possible for third parties to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully. Customer assumes the risk of any failure of security and agrees to do what Customer reasonably can to promote security.
