Internet Aspects:

Although information collected, used or disclosed on the Internet as described below often does not constitute Personal Information (and to the extent that such is the case, then the obligations under the Website On-Demand Privacy Policy do not extend to such information), Website On-Demand provides the details below about Internet aspects of Website On-Demand Companies Services for the purposes of disclosure about Website On-Demand Companies Services.

Internet Protocol Address (IP Address)

When the user’s web browser requests a web page from another computer on the Internet, it automatically gives that computer the address where it should send the information. This address is
called the computer’s “IP address.” For most users accessing the Internet from a dial-up Internet service provider (ISP), the IP address will be different every time the user logs on. Website On-Demand Companies may use the user’s IP Address to:

  • facilitate the diagnosis and remedy of a technical problem reported by the user’s or Website On-Demand Company’s technical team.
  • display (or allow the display by Third Party advertising providers of) more appropriate and relevant content and advertising, such as content and advertising based on the user’s geographic
    area.
  • estimate user traffic from specific countries or organizations. Many IP addresses are commonly associated with Internet service providers, universities, or major corporations in specific regions or localities. Aggregate information derived from IP addresses may also be reported to advertisers.

Cookies

A cookie is a small text file, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, that is sent to the user’s web browser from a website’s computers and is stored on the user’s computer’s hard drive. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to a user’s computer. Website On-Demand Companies may use cookies to:

• improve the operation and performance of the Website On-Demand Companies Services and to make Website On-Demand Companies Services easier and more convenient to use. For example, cookies help Website On-Demand Companies provide more personalized services by recalling user preferences on subsequent visits (e.g. language preference). Cookies also allow Website On-Demand Companies to save passwords and preferences for a user so that the user will not have to re-enter them on the next visit to a Website On-Demand Companies Site;

• measure aggregate user traffic and demographic statistics related to Website On-Demand Companies Services and advertisements (e.g. number of users, average time spent, average age and similar statistics). This information helps Website On-Demand Companies to better understand when to update, change or offer new services and provides Website On-Demand Companies with details as to the performance of Third Party advertisements and content. This information may be reported, in aggregate form only, to Website On-Demand Companies’ current and prospective sponsors, advertisers and business partners. No Personal Information will be disclosed in such reports;

• display advertisements. Website On-Demand Companies and Third Party advertising providers may use cookies when serving advertisements on Website On-Demand Companies Sites. In some cases, advertisements from Third Party advertisers are delivered to users (in conjunction with Website On-Demand Companies Services) by such Third Party advertisers, or by separately contracted advertising providers on their behalf, and not by Website On-Demand Companies; as such, the Third-party advertisers’ use of cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not the Website On-Demand Privacy Policy, and users should consult the privacy policies of such Third Party advertisers.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. If a user prefers, the user can reset his/her browser either to notify the user when the user has received a cookie, or to refuse to accept cookies. The user should understand that while Website On-Demand Companies do not require a user to use cookies, certain Website On-Demand Companies Services will not function properly if a user sets his/her browser to not accept cookies.

Web Beacons

Certain Website On-Demand Companies Services may contain electronic images known as Web beacons – sometimes called single-pixel gifs – that allow Website On-Demand Companies to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. Web beacons are not used to access Personal Information; they are a technique used to compile aggregated statistics about Website On-Demand Companies service usage. Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Web beacon resides. Certain Website On-Demand Companies Services web pages may also contain Web beacons placed there by Website On-Demand Companies’ advertising partners to help Website On-Demand Companies determine the effectiveness of Website On-Demand Companies’ Internet advertising campaigns.

Links To Other Sites And Advertisements

A Website On-Demand Companies Service may contain links to other websites and services. While Website On-Demand Companies try to link only to sites and services that share Website On-Demand Companies’ high standards and
respect for privacy, a user should understand that Website On-Demand Companies are not responsible for the content of, or the privacy practices employed by, other companies or websites. This Website On-Demand Privacy Policy applies only to the Website On-Demand Companies Services related to this Website On-Demand Privacy Policy.

The majority of the advertisements which are displayed in connection with Website On-Demand Companies Services are served through one or more reputable Third Party advertisement-serving companies which deliver the advertisements to users in conjunction with Website On-Demand Companies Services.

Additional Information

Website On-Demand Companies automatically collect certain information about the user’s computer hardware and software. This information may include: browser type, operating system type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by Website On-Demand Companies to operate the service, to maintain the quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Website On-Demand Companies Sites.
