Information Collection

Peer Software deems privacy a central issue of Internet use. Peer Software attempts to have reasonable measures in place to assure the anonymity of visitors to our web site. Peer Software feels, as part of responsible disclosure, that our web site users are made aware of what information is being logged. To maintain and improve site quality and integrity, IP addresses are logged (the Internet Protocol addresses of computers). This log is a standard method of reporting to statistically find out which parts of our web site are visited and how long visitors spend there. We also log the type of browser and operating system you are using. We do not link IP addresses to personally identifiable information. Like many other commercial web sites, the Peer Software web site may use a standard technology called a “cookie” to collect information about how you use the site. Cookies were originally designed to help a web site distinguish a user as a previous visitor and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set while the user was browsing the site. A cookie is a small string of text that a web site can send to your browser. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, pass on computer viruses, or capture your email address. Currently, web sites use cookies to enhance the user’s visit; in general, cookies can securely store a user’s ID and password, personalize home pages, identify which parts of a site have been visited, or keep track of selections in a “shopping cart.” It is possible to set your browser to inform you when a cookie is being placed – this way, you have the opportunity to decide whether to accept or not accept the cookie. At times we may request that you voluntarily supply us with personal information, such as your email address, for purposes such as corresponding with us, registering at a site, making a purchase, entering a sweepstakes, registering a new product, or participating in an online survey.


Information Use

When you supply Peer Software with your personal information, we may use the information to learn more about you, so that we can develop better products and services or use the information, sharing it with our business partners, to inform you about new products, services, and offers that may be of interest to you.


Declining E-mail Offers

Although most customers tell us they appreciate receiving notice of these opportunities, we recognize the importance of providing you with choices. At any time after receiving an email offer from Peer Software, you may request to discontinue receiving these offers. All email offers that you receive from Peer Software will tell you how to decline further email offers. Our partners may have different policies.



While Peer Software’s product ad campaigns and marketing materials may be viewed by children, we do not wish to receive data from children. Peer Software encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate in the interactive activities offered on the sites their children visit. No information should be submitted to or posted at Peer Software’s web site by visitors under 18 years of age without the consent of their parent or guardian. Peer Software Inc.’s privacy statement is subject to change at any time and without notice.
