PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR USE OF AND ACCESS TO OUR SERVICES (DEFINED BELOW) ARE SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING TERMS; IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THE FOLLOWING, YOU MAY NOT USE OR ACCESS THREADS IN ANY MANNER.

Welcome to Threads. Please read on to learn the rules and restrictions that govern your use of Threads and the related website(s), products, services and applications (collectively, "Threads"). If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding these terms or Threads, please contact us at admin@threads.com, 510-761-9604, or 143 2nd St. Floor 4, San Francisco CA 94105.

These Terms of Use (the "Terms") are a binding contract between you and Threads Group, Inc. ("Company," "we" and "us"). You must agree to and accept all of the Terms, or you don't have the right to use Threads. Your using Threads in any way means that you agree to all of these Terms, and these Terms will remain in effect while you use Threads. These Terms include the provisions in this document, as well as those in the Privacy Policy and Copyright Dispute Policy.

Will these Terms ever change?

We are constantly trying to improve Threads, so these Terms may need to change along with Threads. We reserve the right to change the Terms at any time, but if we do, we will bring it to your attention by placing a notice on the threads.com website, by sending you an email, and/or by some other means.

If you don't agree with the new Terms, you are free to reject them; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be able to use Threads. If you use Threads in any way after a change to the Terms is effective, that means you agree to all of the changes.

Except for changes made by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms will be effective unless in writing and signed by both you and us.

What about my privacy?

We take the privacy of our users very seriously. You can view our current Privacy Policy here.

The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") requires that online service providers obtain parental consent before they knowingly collect personally identifiable information online from children who are under 13. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personally identifiable information from children under 13; if you are a child under 13, please do not attempt to register for Threads or send any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn we have collected personal information from a child under 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 13 may have provided us personal information, please contact us at admin@threads.com.

What are the basics of using Threads?

You may be required to sign up for an account, and to provide your email address, first name and last name, company and role. You promise to provide us with accurate, complete, and updated information about yourself. By providing us with your email address, you consent to receiving email communications about Threads from us. You may not use a name that you don't have the right to use, or another person's name with the intent to impersonate that person. You may not transfer your account to anyone else without our prior written permission.

You represent and warrant that you are an individual of legal age to form a binding contract (or if not, you've received your parent's or guardian's permission to use Threads and have had your parent or guardian to agree to these Terms on your behalf). If you're agreeing to these Terms on behalf of an organization or entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to agree to these Terms on that organization or entity's behalf and bind them to these Terms (in which case, the references to "you" and "your" in these Terms, except for in this sentence, refer to that organization or entity).

You will only use Threads for your own internal use, and not on behalf of or for the benefit of any third party, and only in a manner that complies with all laws that apply to you. If your use of Threads is prohibited by applicable laws, then you aren't authorized to use Threads. We can't and won't be responsible for your using Threads in a way that breaks the law.

You will not share your account access with anyone, and you must protect the security of your account. You're responsible for any activity associated with your account.
