Data Usage Policy: Non-Personal Browsing and Site Usage Information
Our Data Usage Policy covers how we maintain and use information about you that is collected by our Website and server logs, including when you log into this website using your Thresher Marketing account.
Non-Personal Browsing Information We Collect. When you use this Website, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) may collect information indirectly and automatically (through, for example, the use of your “IP address”) about your activities while visiting this Website and information about the browser you are using. In addition, whenever you use your Thresher Marketing account to log into this website, our servers (which, again, may be hosted by a third party service provider) keep a log of the websites you visit and when you visit them.

We use this information for internal purposes only, such as to help understand how this Website is being used, to improve our Website and the features we provide, and for systems administration purposes. Thresher Marketing may use a third party analytics provider to help us collect and analyze non-personal browsing information through operation of our Website for those same purposes.
Notice. If Thresher Marketing is required to provide a third party with your non-personal browsing information (whether by subpoena or otherwise), then Thresher Marketing will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that event, unless Thresher Marketing is prohibited by law from doing so or is otherwise advised not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.
