Opera Software has permanently removed the ad banner and licensing fee from its browser. The ad-free, full-featured Opera browser is available for download - completely free of charge @ http://www.opera.com
|(a) AUTOMATIC FEEDBACK. The Browser is configured to periodically check
your computer system for,
and report back without additional notice to you, anonymous information relating to your use of the Browser, such as the
frequency of your use of the Browser and certain of its features, your Browser configuration settings, and information on
computer errors occurring during your use of the Browser. Unless you opt out of this feedback program during installation,
this anonymous usage data will be sent to the Netscape Browser team who will use the information for such purposes as
diagnosing performance issues with the Browser, improving the reliability of the download and install process, and
improving its products and services to users generally. This feedback information from the Browser will not be tied to
any information that would identify you personally. Information regarding websites you have visited or added to your
Bookmarks list is stored by the Browser locally on your hard drive for your convenience. The Browser does not provide
Netscape with information about your Internet navigation history.
(b) BROWSER ID. The Browser contains a specific identification number for the purpose of tracking the number of unique instances of the Browser in use. This number is not associated with any information about you, or that would personally identify you.
(c) PERSONALIZATION. During the installation process, or at some time thereafter, you may be asked to provide certain information that Netscape will use to personalize content presented to you through the Browser. For example, you may be asked for your zip code, which could be used by the Browser to provide you with relevant local weather and/or news reports. The information gathered by the Browser will not be tied to any information that would identify you personally. The websites you visit, including those of advertisers, have their own privacy policies. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of websites before providing them with any of your personal information.
