How we use the collected information:

Information we collect from you is used on an aggregate basis and for reporting purposes only. For example, we measure the total number of Extension installations per month in order to pay our partners, the total number of Extension searches conducted per month to measure growth patterns, the number of Extensions used by browser per month to study browser trends, and so on. All information is collected in aggregate and never measured on an individual basis.


We take privacy seriously and will only use the information you are providing for the sole purpose of following up on your email to us. We will not share your information with third parties unless legally required without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

a) Search term that was entered into the search box

b) Originating IP address and the user’s country or OS language setting

c) Sponsored listings or other advertisements that were clicked on

d) That the search request came from the [company name] Extension and its associated revenue tag


Use of Cookies:

When you conduct a search using the Extension, our content providers who supply search results (i.e. Yahoo, Bing, DuckDuckGo, etc) may set or access cookies on your computer. The cookies are used for the purpose of measuring referrals from our Extension on an aggregate basis and are not tied to your personal information.
