We take your privacy very seriously. We've gone through great efforts to limit the amount of data we collect to get Boounce to function properly and secure the service.
In a nutshell:
- Registration is not required to use Boounce, but if you do, we will never sell or share your personal information.
- We will never send you spam.
- We do not monitor your browsing (even though it looks like we do). Read more...
- If you use Boounce to search, we have a log of your search term, the target site, when you searched, and your IP. By default, your IP is automatically deleted in 30 days unless you uncheck this option in the options menu of the add-on. Read more...
- We do not log the searches you perform directly on websites including Google.com.
- When you add or move sites around on the browser add-on, we anonymously log the changes so that we can help determine the organic order and placement of sites and groups for all users.
- If you uninstall Boounce, it will be completely removed. That means no files will remain and no changes are ever made to your computer's registry.
What information do we collect?
We collect information from you when you register on our site or use the Boounce add-on to perform a search. When registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your: name or e-mail address. You may, however, visit our site or use the Boounce add-on anonymously.
Boounce logs searches you make using the toolbar or if you click on an alternative site suggested in your Google and Bing results. Specifically, we have a log of your search term, the target search engine, the time, and your IP. This is because, when you boounce you transparently go through our servers to be redirected to the final destination search engine. This allows us to direct you to the most current search URL without having to continually update the site data on your hard drive. By default, your IP is deleted from our server logs after 30 days. The non-personally identifiable information (search term and target search engine) are used in aggregate to help suggest alternative sites to search to other users in the future.
When you add or move sites around on the browser add-on, we anonymously log the changes so that we can help determine the organic order and placement of sites and groups for all users.
