you came to Springo.com; the date and time for each page you view in the Springo
website; the name of and information about any advertisement that brought you to
the Springo website; searches you perform in the Springo website, links you click

order in which you view them.
If you use the “Contact us” feature, we collect your message, the recipient e-mail
address(es), and your e-mail address for the purpose of sending the e-mail. If you

about any advertisement that brought you to the Springo download
When you download the software, and at times during your use of the Springo website
and Toolbar Service, we transmit Springo cookies to the hard drive of your computer.
These cookies assign your browser a unique series of numbers, letters, or characters
that enable Springo's servers to recognize and identify your browser when you are
using the Toolbar Service. They also enable Springo to track and store information
about your web usage pattern and while using the Toolbar Service.
When you use the Toolbar Service or surf Springo’s website, we collect information
about the websites you visit, the searches you perform when you use the "search"
function, and the pages you view. This information allows us to build our database
of information about web usage patterns and grade the websites in the categories.
Thus, for every web page you view while using the Toolbar Service, the Springo software
transmits and stores the following information from your computer to Springo:
Does Springo Collect Personally Identifiable Information?
Springo does not collect personal information about you. However, the URLs we collect through the Toolbar Service sometimes contain personal information about you. For example, when you enter information on a web page (e.g., when you complete an online registration form or sign up for a contest), the operator of the website may insert that information into its URL for that or the next page. This means that your name, your address, your e-mail address, or similar information you might consider private or personally identifiable which you enter into a Web page sometimes becomes part of a URL that is then transmitted to Springo and automatically stored in Springo's databases. This can also occur with words, topics, products, or phrases you enter into search engines - whether those engines are provided by the Springo Toolbar Service itself or found elsewhere on the web - while using the Springo Toolbar Service. Springo has no control over what information third party websites put into their URLs or where they put it, but any information in each URL is collected and stored by Springo when you are using the Toolbar Service.
If you e-mail Springo, we may store copies of such e-mail or similar communications between you and Springo. This can result in the collection of your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information you may have in your e-mail text, addresses, or other fields, the Internet or other routing of your communication, and the date and time of your communication. We do not attempt to correlate this information to your Springo cookie number or your usage patterns unless responding to your inquiry requires us to do so.
Although these information may contain personally identifiable information, Springo does not attempt to correlate cookie numbers, usage patterns, or demographic information to your e-mail address and does not attempt to determine the identity of any Springo user by analyzing this information, except as required by subpoenas, court orders or legal requirements.
All transmissions between you and Springo, including e-mails, URLs, cookie identification numbers and any personally identifiable information they might contain, pass through many third party machines, operating systems, programs, browsers, web servers, networks, routers, Ethernet switches, ISPs, proxy servers, intranets, the public telephone systems, or other devices, any of which may create activity logs containing such transmissions.
What Does Springo Do With the Information it Collects?
If you gave us your e-mail address when you registered, we may use it to send you Springo newsletters, updates, service-related information, and other offers and information from Springo or its business partners. Springo also may contact you by e-mail to respond to reviews, ratings, and customer service inquiries you submit. We do not disclose your e-mail address to business partners or to anyone other than employees and agents working for or on behalf of Springo, except as required by subpoenas, court orders, or legal requirements. We do not use your e-mail address to correlate your identity to your web usage patterns. If you have given us your e-mail address but wish to unsubscribe at any time, please see our section regarding changing your information for instructions on how to do so.
How Does Springo May Share the Information it Collects?
User privacy has always been a core value of Springo. That is why Springo does not attempt to determine the identity of its users or correlate their e-mail addresses with their web usage patterns. Except as described below, Springo does not intentionally disclose personally identifying information collected from any user to any third party without the user's consent.
We may provide usage patterns information and other information to researchers, and other third parties. They use it to prepare analyses of aggregate web patterns. Such analyses are used in research and commercial reports. We require other third parties to abide by our practice of not attempting to use such information to determine users' identities.
We disclose any information we possess in response to subpoenas, court orders, or legal requirements, and such information might be used by the receiving party to determine your identity, your web usage or other things about you. We generally do not inform users of such requests for information, although we might try to do so in some cases.
We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, such as technical support services. To perform those functions, it may be necessary for them to obtain access to Springo's databases and servers, which may contain personally identifying information about users. They may not use such access or information for any purpose other than that for which they are retained.
How is Your Information Protected?
Springo uses commercially reasonable computer security safeguards to protect its databases and servers against risks of loss, unauthorized access, destruction, misuse, modification, or inadvertent or improper disclosure of data. These risks, however, cannot be completely eliminated and Springo therefore cannot guarantee complete security.
