What is Barrier Holdings Corporation position regarding online advertising and third party ad servers?

* geographically target advertising,
* deliver product and pricing advertising/information applicable to the customers’ state, and gauge the effectiveness of our online advertising.

Personally identifiable information such as name, address, phone number or email address is not collected.

In addition, some Barrier Holdings Corporation websites may accept advertisements from third party advertisers. These advertisers are carefully selected to provide information about products and services that we think may benefit Barrier Holdings Corporation customers.
