CHILDREN UNDER 13

ThroughPut does not knowingly allow anyone under 13 to provide us with any personal identifying information. Children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as, their names, e-mail addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet to us or to anyone else. In the event we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at info@throughput.ai

INFORMATION COLLECTION:

Personal Identifying Information

We collect personal identifying information (“PII”) from you when you visit our Site or use the Services and through e-mail or transactions. PII includes your name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone and cell phone numbers, wireless service provider, and all other information that identifies you.

Non-Personal Identifying Information

We also collect other information you provide as part of registration and administration and personalization of your user experience (e.g., without limitation, zip code or location (in either case on their own) and individual preferences) (“Non-Personal Identifying Information”).

User Account Information

To use the Services or download materials from the Site, you may need to register and create a user account (“User Account”). You may be asked to choose a user (“User Name”) and password (“User Password”). Select a unique User Name and Password.  You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your User Password, whether you choose it for yourself or it is assigned to you.  You may also be asked to provide certain PII, such as your full name, address, telephone number, and email address. As part of your User Account, you may receive email newsletters and promotional material.  You may request to opt out of these emails at any time by selecting the “opt-out” option within the body of the email.  You are responsible for maintaining and updating your Account information with current and correct information.

Device IDs

We may collect and store a unique device ID associated with your particular device (“Device ID”). We use your Device ID to track the number of unique users using our Service and to enable you to interact with and use our Services and to make it possible to authenticate and understand the use of our Services. We link your Device ID with the technical information accessed through your use of the Services which enables us to administer resets to your account or to delete information when you request that we do so or for other administrative purposes.

Log Data

We may collect information about your interaction with the Site or the Services. When you use our Services, including the Site, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends, including through Web site analytics tools on our Site, whenever you visit a website or service connected to the Internet (“Log Data”).  This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s or mobile device’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Site, pages of our Site that you visit, the time spent on those pages, search engine(s) and keywords you used to find our Site, your browser add-ons, and your browser’s width and height, information you search for on our Site, access times and dates, and other statistics. We use this information to provide you with a better experience, to improve the Services, to analyze and understand how our Site and Services are used, and for advertising and other marketing purposes.  We may also use technologies, such as cookies and web beacons (described below), to collect information about the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take on the Site.

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

The information we collect allows us to customize the content and/or layout of our Site for you and others. Plus, it enables us to notify you about updates to our Services and the Site, contact you about promotions and other special offers of interest, and customize your experience. We use your PII mainly to provide the Services and administer your inquiries.

We sometimes use your PII in conjunction with your Non-Personal Identifying Information. Certain Non-Personal Identifying Information would be considered a part of your PII if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. We may combine your PII with Non-Personal Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other ThroughPut users to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the Services and to analyze and understand how our Site and Services are used.

We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically, for instance, to deliver a product to you according to your preferences or restrictions, for advertising or advertising targeting purposes. We also use your PII to contact you with ThroughPut newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications.

INFORMATION SHARING

We may make certain PII and other information available to trusted third parties that work with us to provide products and services to our customers, or that intend to market products and services to you directly. These companies are obligated to protect the information they receive.

We may share aggregated information that includes non-personal identifying information and Log Data with third parties for industry analysis, including analysis of how our Site and Services are used. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your PII.

We employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Services (e.g., without limitation, maintenance services, database management, web analytics and improvement of our Services’ features), to provide the Services on our behalf, or to assist us in analyzing how Services are used. These third parties have access to your PII only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.

TRANSFERS OF INFORMATION FOR LEGAL PURPOSES

ThroughPut may need to disclose certain information to comply with a legal requirement, such as a law, regulation, court order, subpoena, or search warrant, in the course of a legal proceeding or in response to a law enforcement agency request. If there is a change of control in ThroughPut’s business (whether by merger, sale, or otherwise) or a sale or transfer of its assets, your information could be sold or transferred as part of that transaction and your PII and other information potentially used by the purchaser or other recipient of said information.

You acknowledge that ThroughPut is located in the United States of America (“U.S.”) and will process and store your information in the U.S., and that as a result, U.S. governments, courts or law enforcement or regulatory agencies may be able to obtain disclosure of your information through the laws of the U.S.

YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

As described above, from time to time, we make your PII available to third parties. If you do not want us to share your PII with other companies or organizations, you may opt-out of this information sharing by emailing ThroughPutat info@throughput.ai or writing to us at 2100 Geng Road Suite 210 Palo Alto California 94303.
