Software

Any software or application that is made available to download from or via these Websites is the property of Threshold 360 and/or its suppliers (or is used under license from its owner) and is protected under United States and international copyright laws. Your use of the software is governed by the terms of the End User License Agreement (“EULA”), if any, that accompanies or is included with the software.

Any such software is provided to you subject to the warranty and liability exclusions set forth in these Terms.

Trademarks

THRESHOLD 360, and any trademarks, logos and/or other marks used in the Websites are trademarks or service marks of Threshold 360 or its licensors, and are protected by state and federal trademark laws. All related product and service names, design marks and slogans are the trademarks or service marks of Threshold 360, as are the “look” and “feel” of the Websites (including color combinations, layout, design and all other graphical elements). Other trademarks appear on the Websites with permission from their respective owners. Your unauthorized use of trademarks appearing on the Websites may constitute trademark infringement, which could subject you to substantial civil penalties. Nothing within the Websites shall be construed as permission or a license to use any of the logos, marks, or other without the express written consent of their respective copyright holders.

IV. NO RELIANCE ON WEBSITE CONTENT

Third Party Links

The Websites may contain hyperlinks to websites (“Third Party Websites”) owned and operated by parties other than Threshold 360. Such hyperlinks are provided for your reference and convenience only and do not in any way directly or indirectly imply any endorsement of the material on such Third Party Websites or any association with their owners or operators. Threshold 360 does not control and is not responsible for such Third Party Websites. You agree that Threshold 360 shall not be liable (directly or indirectly) for any Third Party Websites, including, but not limited to, their availability, their content or any viruses they may contain, or their privacy policies, or their data collection, use and/or security practices, or the technology they implement. Unless otherwise specifically stated by Threshold 360 on these Websites, Threshold 360 does not endorse any product or service or make any representation regarding the reliability, quality or accuracy of any products or services, or business practices of other parties featured in, or linked to, any advertisement appearing on these Websites. Because some websites employ automated search results or otherwise link users to websites that contain information that may be deemed inappropriate or offensive, Threshold 360 cannot be held responsible for the accuracy, legality or decency of material contained on any Third Party Websites. You should review the privacy policy and terms of use for each such Third Party Website and confirm that they are acceptable to you before you register on or use that Third Party Website. All use by you of such Third Party Websites is at your own risk. You understand and agree that you must evaluate and bear all risks associated with the use of any content or in response to any advertisement, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of the content or any advertisement. Threshold 360 reserves the right to terminate such links at any time without notice.

Accuracy of Material

You understand and acknowledge that material and software published on the Websites, including hyperlinks, may include inaccuracies, typographical errors and/or out-of-date material. You understand, acknowledge, and agree that Threshold 360 is not responsible for, nor shall it be liable (directly or indirectly) for any inaccuracies, typographical errors and/or out-of-date material. Further, you also understand and acknowledge that material and software on the Websites may be changed or revised from time to time without notice.

User Provided Content

Threshold 360 does not assume an editorial role with respect any User Content (as defined below). Threshold 360 does not assume any obligation to monitor or edit User Content nor does Threshold 360 take any responsibility for User Content. Similarly, Threshold 360 does not endorse any opinions expressed via the Websites by other users, business or advertisers, nor does Threshold 360 represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any User Content. Instead, Threshold 360 simply provides access to User Content that other users have contributed and edited. Consequently, you agree that Threshold 360 has no responsibility for any User Content posted or transmitted via the Websites by others. ANY RELIANCE ON USER CONTENT IS AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Informational Purposes Only

Although the Websites may host a great deal of information that pertains to businesses in numerous industries and a variety of related topics, including professional topics such as medical, legal, or financial issues, such information is presented for general informational purposes only.

V.   USER RESPONSIBILITIES & PROHIBITED CONDUCT

All information posted on the Websites must comply with all applicable international, national, state, and local laws, regulations, rules, and ordinances. It is your responsibility to ensure that your use of the Websites complies with the Terms and to request prior written permission from Threshold 360 for any uses not permitted or expressly specified in the Terms.

Certain features and areas of the Websites are available only with registration and login. If you are required to register and select a unique login and password (“Personal Credentials”), you must keep your Personal Credentials confidential, including by taking appropriate measures to maintain their confidentiality, such as logging off and closing the Internet browser, especially when you are connected to the Internet through an unsecured network or when using a public computer. Your Personal Credentials are personal to you and you must not allow any third party to use them under any circumstances. Threshold 360 is not liable for any harm caused by or related to the theft, misappropriation, disclosure, or unauthorized use of your Personal Credentials. You must contact Threshold 360 immediately if you become aware of or believe there is or may have been any unauthorized use of your Personal Credentials, or otherwise wish to deactivate your Personal Credentials due to security concerns.

  • Attempting to probe, scan or test the vulnerability of a system or network or to breach security or authentication measures without proper authorization;

Violations of Website or network security may result in civil or criminal liability.

Intellectual Property Rights of Others

As noted above, you may not use our Websites to transmit content belonging to any person or party other than yourself, without the prior written consent of such owner.

Our Rights Regarding User Content

Threshold 360 does not assume any responsibility for the consequences of any User Content on the Websites. However, Threshold 360 shall have the right, but not the obligation, to monitor any User Content areas of the Websites to determine compliance with these Terms (including the Rules Governing User Content above) and any other operating rules that may be established by Threshold 360 from time to time.

Moreover, Threshold 360 reserves the right, but not the obligation, to investigate and act upon allegations of violations of the Rules Governing User Content, including as stated below in Suspension or Cancellation of Privileges, and to delete any User Content for any reason, regardless of whether User Content violates these Terms. Threshold 360 further reserves the right to disclose any User Content, other content, records, user identification and other information, or electronic communication of any kind if we are required to do so by any law, regulation, court order, or subpoena, or if such disclosure is necessary or appropriate to operate the Websites or to protect Threshold 360’s rights or property, or the rights of the other Website users, or our partners, affiliates, sponsors, providers, licensors, or merchants. You agree that Threshold 360 shall comply with and/or otherwise cooperate with international, national, state or local law enforcement officials regarding your use of the Websites or User Content provided by you using the Websites. (For more information about our data use and disclosure policies, refer to our Privacy Policy and our Subpoena Policy).

Threshold 360 reserves the right to record, re-purpose or re-publish User Content on its Websites, blogs, social media platforms, newspapers, newsletters, broadcast media and/or other publishing forums. By posting User Content, you are granting to Threshold 360 and its licensees a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, non-exclusive and irrevocable right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform and display any posting by you (in whole or in part) and/or to incorporate it in other works in any form, media or technology now known or hereafter developed. For this reason, you should not transmit, post or send any User Content that contains any confidential, sensitive or nonpublic information. Threshold 360 does not guarantee that any personal information posted or transmitted will not be viewed, distributed, republished or otherwise used by any other person(s).

Your Responsibility for User Content

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Threshold 360 and its officers, directors, affiliated companies, employees, agents, licensors and suppliers, from and against any and all claims, actions or demands, liabilities and settlements, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, resulting from, or alleged to result from, your use of any User Content or use by others of any User Content posted or uploaded by you, including, without limitation, any claim of libel, defamation, harassment, violation of rights of privacy or publicity, loss of service or infringement of intellectual property or other rights, or violation of these Terms.

VII. WARRANTIES, DISCLAIMERS & INDEMNITY

No Warranties by Threshold 360

YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITES IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE WEBSITES ARE PROVIDED TO YOU “AS IS,” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. Threshold 360 MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT ANY CONTENT CONTAINED ON THESE WEBSITES SATISFIES ANY APPLICABLE GOVERNMENT LAW, REGULATION OR REQUIREMENT. NEITHER Threshold 360 NOR ANY OF ITS PARENT COMPANIES OR CORPORATIONS, AFFILIATES, SUBSIDIARIES, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, THIRD-PARTY INFORMATION PROVIDERS, MERCHANTS, LICENSORS OR THE LIKE WARRANT THAT THE WEBSITES OR THEIR OPERATION WILL BE ACCURATE, RELIABLE, UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE. NO AGENT OR REPRESENTATIVE HAS THE AUTHORITY TO CREATE ANY WARRANTY REGARDING THE WEBSITES ON BEHALF OF Threshold 360. Threshold 360 RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CHANGE OR DISCONTINUE AT ANY TIME ANY ASPECT OR FEATURE OF THE WEBSITES.

Exclusion of Liability

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, SHALL Threshold 360 OR ANYONE ELSE INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING, STORING OR DISTRIBUTING THE WEBSITES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES AND EXPENSES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOST PROFITS, AND DAMAGES ARISING FROM LOST DATA OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION) ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH USE OF THE WEBSITES, DELAY OR INABILITY TO USE THE WEBSITES, OR FOR ANY INFORMATION, SOFTWARE, PRODUCTS OR WEBSITES OBTAINED THROUGH THE WEBSITES, WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES ARE BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. YOU SPECIFICALLY AGREE THAT NO LICENSOR, SUPPLIER OR INFORMATION PROVIDER TO Threshold 360 OR ITS PARENT CORPORATION (IF ANY), AFFILIATED COMPANIES, SUBSIDIARIES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES OR AGENTS, LICENSORS AND SUPPLIERS OR ANY OF THEIR SUCCESSORS OR ASSIGNS (COLLECTIVELY THE “RELEASED PARTIES”), SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY REASON OR UNDER ANY THEORY WHATSOEVER, BASED UPON THE INFORMATION PROVIDED ON OR THROUGH THE WEBSITES.

Because some states do not permit the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, some or all the above limitations may not apply to you.

Indemnification

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold the Released Parties harmless from and against all claims, actions or demands, liabilities and settlements, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, resulting from, or alleged to result from, your use of the Websites, or any content, product or service offered through the Websites, in a manner that violates or is alleged to violate these Terms. Threshold 360 or other relevant Released Party shall provide notice to you of any such claim, suit or proceeding and shall reasonably cooperate with you, at your expense, in your defense of any such claim, suit or proceeding.

VIII. TERMINATION

In certain (hopefully unlikely) circumstances it may be necessary for Threshold 360 to terminate all or any part of our Websites or their services, terminate these Terms, or suspend or terminate your account or privileges (see below).

Discontinuation of Websites

Threshold 360 reserves the right to suspend or end any or all Websites or any of their services at any time, with or without cause, and with or without notice.

Suspension or Cancellation of Privileges

Threshold 360 reserves the right to terminate your privilege to use any or all the Websites if it determines, in its discretion, that you have breached any of these Terms or any applicable law or that it is potentially harmful to our interests or the interests (including intellectual property or other rights) of another user or third party. Without limiting any available remedies or the procedures set forth in the Copyright Policy below, if Threshold 360 receives notice or has reason to believe, in its sole discretion, that you have posted User Content that infringes the rights of any other person under copyright, trademark, privacy, or publicity, or otherwise, Threshold 360 may terminate your access to the Websites, including all privileges or user accounts that you may have established in connection with the Websites.

IX. COPYRIGHT POLICY

Threshold 360 respects the intellectual property of others, and, particularly as to user generated content in comments, discussion boards or in other user contributed content, as applicable, we ask our users to do the same. Threshold 360 does not permit copyright infringing activities on the Websites. Threshold 360 does not, however, monitor user-submitted materials for copyright infringement. Threshold 360 abides by the federal Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) by responding to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the DMCA and other applicable laws. As part of our response, we will remove materials if properly notified that such materials infringe on another’s intellectual property rights. If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe that any content on our Websites infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the DMCA as set forth below.

Takedown Notices

If you believe that any material on the Websites infringes your copyright, please provide our designated agent below (“Designated Agent”) with the following information (collectively “Takedown Notice”):

  • Your full name, address and telephone number;
  • Your e-mail address;
  • Identification of each of the copyrighted work(s) that you believe is being infringed;
  • Identification of each such infringing material and information sufficient for Threshold 360 to locate the material;
  • Your statement, made under penalty of perjury, that the information provided in your Takedown Notice is accurate and that you are copyright owner or authorized to act for the copyright owner; and
  • Your physical or electronic signature.

Threshold 360’s Designated Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement can be reached as follows:

Threshold 360, LLC
Attn: {DMCA AGENT}

500 East Kennedy Blvd., Suite 100-E {OR OTHER DMCA AGENT ADDRESS}
Tampa, FL 33602 {OR OTHER DMCA AGENT CITY STATE ZIP}

Phone: {DMCA AGENT PHONE}
Fax: {INSERT FAX NUMBER FOR DMCA AGENT}
E-mail: {INSERT E-MAIL ADDRESS FOR DMCA AGENT}

Upon receipt of a Takedown Notice complying with the above requirements, Threshold 360 will act to remove infringing materials and, if applicable, send notice to the user that posted such materials on the Websites.

Counter Takedown Notices

If Threshold 360 removes materials posted by you as a user due to a Takedown Notice, you may pursue reinstatement of the materials by sending a written notice (“Counter Takedown Notice”) to the Designated Agent including the following information:

  • Your full name, address and telephone number;
  • Your e-mail address;
  • Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled, including its location before it was removed or disabled;
  • Your statement, under penalty of perjury, that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material;
  • Your statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the district in which your address is located, or, if you reside outside of the United States, of the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida (where Threshold 360 may be found), and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notice of copyright infringement or from such person’s agent; and
  • Your physical or electronic signature.

Please note that parties who misrepresent that materials are infringing or were removed by mistake or misidentification are subject to substantial civil liability to Threshold 360 and/or the copyright owner or Website user.

X.   DISPUTES

We hope that no serious disagreements arise involving you, but, in the event there is a dispute, our goal is to provide you a neutral and cost effective means to resolve it quickly. Accordingly, you agree that, if a dispute arises between you and Threshold 360, you will first contact Threshold 360 customer service to describe the problem and seek a resolution. You may contact customer service using any of the following means:

  • Online – {INSERT URL FOR GENERAL CONTACT US PAGE}
  • By Telephone – {INSERT PHONE NUMBER FOR GENERAL CUSTOMER INQUIRIES}
  • By U.S. Mail – Threshold 360, LLC, 500 East Kennedy Blvd., Suite 100-E, Tampa, FL 33602

If that does not resolve the issue, then you and Threshold 360 agree to the following methods to resolve any dispute or claim between us.

First, as set forth below, you agree that the Terms are governed by the law of the State of Florida, without regard to its principles on conflicts of laws, and the federal law of the United States of America. Second, you agree that you will seek arbitration in accordance with the Arbitration Procedure below.

ARBITRATION

ANY DISPUTE RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITES SHALL BE SUBMITTED TO CONFIDENTIAL BINDING ARBITRATION IN Hillsborough County, Florida, EXCEPT FOR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY CLAIMS BROUGHT BY THRESHOLD 360 (WHICH FOR PURPOSES OF THIS SECTION DO NOT INCLUDE PRIVACY AND PUBLICITY CLAIMS) AND CLAIMS THAT MAY BE BROUGHT IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT. IF YOU CAN DEMONSTRATE TO US THAT ARBITRATION IN Hillsborough County, Florida WOULD CREATE AN UNDUE BURDEN ON YOU, WE WILL ALLOW YOU TO INITIATE THE ARBITRATION IN YOUR HOME STATE. ANY DISAGREEMENTS REGARDING THE FORUM FOR ARBITRATION WILL BE SETTLED BY THE ARBITRATOR.

If arbitration cannot resolve the issue, you agree, as also set forth below, to unconditionally and irrevocably submit to the mandatory and exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of the state or federal courts located within Hillsborough County, Florida to litigate such claims or disputes. You agree that you will not object to such jurisdiction and venue on the grounds of lack of personal jurisdiction, inconvenient forum or otherwise. EACH PARTY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ALL RIGHTS TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS. Threshold 360 reserves all rights and remedies available to it, in law or equity, with respect to any matter relating to these Terms.

Arbitration Procedure

Any arbitration will be governed by the consumer arbitration rules then prevailing of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA’s Consumer Rules”), excluding any rules and procedures governing or permitting class or representative actions. the rules are available at the American Arbitration Association’s website, http://www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. YOU AND Threshold 360 AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Threshold 360 agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. Any claim or controversy as to the enforceability of this arbitration provision’s restriction on your right to participate in or pursue a class action or classwide arbitration shall be brought only in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida or any State court located in Hillsborough County, Florida. THE ARBITRATOR SHALL APPLY Florida LAW, AND THE ARBITRATOR’S AWARD SHALL BE BINDING AND MAY BE ENTERED AS A JUDGMENT IN ANY COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION. THERE SHALL BE NO APPEAL FROM ANY AWARD OF THE ARBITRATOR. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NO ARBITRATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE JOINED TO AN ARBITRATION INVOLVING ANY OTHER PARTY SUBJECT TO THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER THROUGH CLASS ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS OR OTHERWISE. IF ANY PART OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION IS FOUND TO BE INVALID, UNENFORCEABLE OR ILLEGAL, THE REST OF THIS PROVISION SHALL REMAIN IN EFFECT. IF THE ENTIRE ARBITRATION PROVISION IS FOUND TO BE INVALID OR UNENFORCEABLE, THEN THE PARTIES CONSENT TO PERSONAL JURISDICTION AND EXCLUSIVE VENUE IN THE STATE AND FEDERAL COURTS IN Hillsborough County, Florida.

If you initiate the arbitration, your arbitration fees will be limited to the filing fee set forth in the AAA’s Consumer Rules. Regardless of who initiates the arbitration, Threshold 360 will pay any other arbitration fees, including your share of arbitrator compensation. If the arbitrator rules against Threshold 360, in addition to accepting whatever responsibility is ordered by the arbitrator, Threshold 360 will reimburse your reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, regardless of who initiated the arbitration. In addition, if the arbitrator rules in our favor, we will not seek reimbursement of our attorneys’ fees and costs, regardless of who initiated the arbitration.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, this arbitration provision does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms.

Intellectual Property Claims by Threshold 360

In the event of intellectual property claims by Threshold 360 against you, Threshold 360 shall have the right to litigate such claims in any state or federal court in Hillsborough County, Florida, and you consent to the exclusive and mandatory venue in such courts.

Governing Law

As noted above, these Terms and all matters regarding your use of the Websites shall be governed by, construed in accordance with, and enforced under the laws of Florida applicable to contracts made and executed and wholly performed in Florida, without regard to choice of law principles. Neither the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act nor the United Nations Convention on Contracts for International Sale of Goods shall apply and their applicability is expressly excluded.

Venue

If you seek to file a legal claim against us, you agree to file and resolve it exclusively in a state or federal court located in Hillsborough County, Florida. You also agree that the laws of Florida and, to the extent applicable, the laws of the United States of America will govern these Terms, as well as any legal claim that might arise between you and us (without reference to conflict of laws principles). You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of, and agree that venue is proper in, the courts located in Hillsborough County, Florida, in any legal action or proceeding relating to us, the Websites, or these Terms.

Deadline to Pursue Claim

To ensure that disputes are dealt with soon after they arise, you agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action you might have arising out of or related to use of the Websites or these Terms must be filed within the applicable statute of limitations or, if earlier, one (1) year after the pertinent facts underlying such claim or cause of action could have been discovered with reasonable diligence (or be forever barred).

Jurisdiction

The Websites are controlled and operated by Threshold 360 from its principal office in Florida, United States of America. Threshold 360 makes no representation that materials on the Websites are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who choose to access the Websites from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable. The Websites are not intended to subject Threshold 360 to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country or territory other than the Florida and the United States of America.

XI. MISCELLANEOUS

Entire Agreement

These Terms, including the Privacy Policy, constitute the entire agreement and understanding between you and Threshold 360 with respect to use of the Websites, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications and/or proposals.

Admissibility

A printed version of these Terms and any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to use of the Websites to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.

Waiver

The failure of to exercise or enforce any right or provision in these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

Severability

If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, such provision shall be enforced to the fullest extent of the law, and all other provisions will remain in full force and effect.

Survival

Though we hope you will continue to use our Websites, you can stop using them at any time. Please note that even after you stop using the Websites (or any part thereof) is terminated, or after your account or privileges are suspended or terminated for any reason (including as set forth in Suspension or Cancellation of Privileges), these Terms will remain in effect with respect to relevant provisions, including the following Sections: Click-Through Agreements, Privacy Policy, Ownership (including the following subsections: Copyrights, Software and Trademarks), No Reliance on Website Content (including the following subsections: Third Party Links, Accuracy of Material, and Informational Purposes Only), User Content (including the following subsections: Our Rights Regarding User Content and Your Responsibility for User Content), Warranties, Disclaimers and Indemnity (including the following subsections: No Warranties by Threshold 360, Exclusion of Liability, and Indemnification), Copyright Policy, Disputes (including the following subsections: ARBITRATION, Arbitration Procedure, Intellectual Property Claims by Threshold 360, Governing Law, Venue, Deadline to Pursue Claim, and Jurisdiction), and Miscellaneous (including the following subsections: Entire Agreement, Admissibility, Waiver, Severability and Survival), as well as any provisions herein or Additional Terms that by their nature survive the termination of these Terms.

XII. SUBPOENA POLICY

Threshold 360 reserves the right to refuse to release account information relating to users of its Websites (“Website Users”) except upon the proper service of valid and enforceable legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order. If you are seeking such identity or account information in connection with a civil legal matter you must serve Threshold 360 with a valid and enforceable subpoena. This information can only be obtained by a properly issued subpoena served upon our Registered Agent:

Threshold 360, LLC

c/o TriFidelity Group, LLC

500 East Kennedy Blvd., Suite 100-E

Tampa, FL 33602

In addition to serving our Registered Agent, sending an electronic version of the subpoena and related documents by e-mail to {INSERT E-MAIL ADDRESS FOR SUBPOENAS OR LEGAL} will often result in a timelier response. However, it should be in addition to and will not take place of formal legal process required by applicable law.

Regulatory and Law Enforcement Agencies

Subject to the subsection entitled Other Objections below, in most instances, Threshold 360 will comply with lawfully and properly issued federal and state government subpoenas (judicial or administrative) to the extent that they are not unduly burdensome or unreasonably invasive of our Website Users’ privacy. The subpoena should be narrow in scope and identify the specific account information requested, the Website User’s alias or user name and sufficient information to identify the Website User Content or other information subject to the subpoena.

If the issuing officer does not wish the named Website User account(s) to be notified prior to production, the subpoena should specify that it is issued pursuant to a confidential or criminal investigation.

Subpoenas Issued in Other Matters

Subpoenas for Website User account information must be issued by or domesticated through a court having personal jurisdiction over Threshold 360. Threshold 360’s Registered Agent is located in Tampa, Florida (see above) and we accept service from the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida.

Generally, Threshold 360 reserves the right to decline to release account information concerning a Website User (including information necessary to identify such Website User) unless the party seeking the information demonstrates that it has filed a bona fide legal action against the Website User arising out of tortious or actionable conduct using the Websites and that the information requested is relevant and material to such action. In other words, Threshold 360 reserves the right not to produce Website User account information based on subpoenas merely designed as part of a “fishing expedition.”

In addition, Threshold 360 reserves the right not to produce identifying information in the absence of demonstration by the party seeking such information of satisfaction with the applicable standards for identifying anonymous speakers in like cases and Threshold 360 reserves the right to request a copy of the relevant pleading and such other supporting documentation as it may deem appropriate in evaluating the sufficiency of such showing.

Other Objections

We reserve the right to object to subpoenas that include overly broad demands such as “all information” (as doing so typically would be a violation of federal and state law), as well as to subpoenas that we deem objectionable on any other grounds, including those set forth in the relevant procedural rules or issuing regulations.

Timing

Upon receipt of a subpoena and initial review of its legal sufficiency, Threshold 360 will attempt to notify the Website User(s) whose account information is being sought. Any subpoena should allow a minimum of twenty (20) days to allow the subject Website User the opportunity to move to quash the subpoena.

Cost & Expense Reimbursement

To defer the cost to Threshold 360 of compliance, payment of the following minimum fees is required for all subpoena, court order and search warrant requests, except for child pornography or endangerment investigations. An estimate of fees will be provided prior to commencement of production. Threshold 360 reserves the right to require payment in advance of preparation of production materials.

  • Basic account information ($50 per account)
  • Basic account information – expedited handling ($75 per account)
  • Development or programming required to comply with extraordinary production requests ($125/hour)
  • Threshold 360 legal counsel, if required ($200/hour)
  • Courier charges (actual cost incurred)

Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 2706, Threshold 360 reserves the right to require payment by a “governmental entity obtaining the contents of communications, records, or other information… a fee for reimbursement for such costs as are reasonably necessary and which have been directly incurred in searching for, assembling, reproducing, or otherwise providing such information. Such reimbursable costs shall include any costs due to necessary disruption of normal operations of any electronic communication service or remote computing service in which such information may be stored.”

No Third Party Rights

Threshold 360 will apply this Subpoena Policy to any subpoena in its sole discretion. This Subpoena Policy does not create any enforceable legal rights, either for Website Users or for requesting parties and there are no intended or incidental third party beneficiaries to this policy.
