As is true of many websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about WATCHOOGLE user base as a whole. We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.
Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)
We employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personally identifiable information.
Third Party Advertisers

WATCHOOGLE may share aggregated demographic information about our user base with our partners and advertisers.

This aggregated information does not identify individual users.
Nonpublic Personally Identifiable Information
We do not share nonpublic personally identifiable information with third parties.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law; when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights; or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us. You acknowledge and consent to such disclosure.
