IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ THIS END-USER LICENSE AGREEMENT ("EULA") CAREFULLY. BY DOWNLOADING, ACCESSING, INSTALLING OR USING THE SOCIALPRIVACY.ORG SOFTWARE, YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS EULA. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS EULA, DO NOT DOWNLOAD, INSTALL, ACCESS OR USE THE SHOPPING APPLICATION AND ITS ASSOCIATED SOFTWARE. THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTIES AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY (See Sections 3 and 8) AND AN EXCLUSIVE REMEDY (See Section 8b). THESE PROVISIONS FORM AN ESSENTIAL BASIS OF OUR AGREEMENT.
Download of Browser Application and Software
When you install the Browser Application, you are adding a whole new set of functions to your Web browser. The Social Privacy Application offers users features such as malicious IP monitoring, harmful website alerts, and other security related alerts whenever sites that you choose to visit have a known threat or security and privacy vulnerability. Once you install the Browser Application, for ease of use it will be visible in your Web browser window whenever you are connected to the Internet. While the Software uses information from your browser activity to alert you that there are threats, no personally-identifiable information is associated by Social Privacy. The Application functionality is dependent on our Software which is designed to help ensure that you never get harmed while browsing the web. When you enter the URL of a web site into your browser, the Software is designed to recognize the website to determine whether there is a known threat. If there is, you will see an alert on the Browser Application. Our Browser Application and Software are automatically updated regularly based on new sources of threats. These change on a regular basis.
You may receive periodic updates to the Software that may include updates to our security database; and/or additions, changes or modifications to the Browser Application and Software; as well as the addition of other features that may enhance your browsing experience. We reserve the right to change, add to or discontinue any portion of our Browser Application and Software database in any way, solely as a matter of our discretion. Please let us know of any questions, concerns or problems you have relating to the Software by contacting us at www.socialprivacy.org
Social Privacy will also display search results from some of your favorite sites on the web directly in the window you are viewing without detracting from your interaction on sites. For example, Social Privacy passes the search words you type on search engines through valued partners like eBay, PriceGrabber and Yahoo to help bring search results from their sites which improves the relevancy of results, offers, and ads presented to you. This does not alter the search results provided by your search provider, but will give you other options. In order to keep our apps free of any service charges, we will show relevant and minimal ads when displaying results from search. You can easily uninstall or disable our product from the Add/Remove control panel (if you installed via a downloaded executable) or from within your browser.
The Social Privacy App is free to download and use. As such, Social Privacy is advertiser/ad-supported, which means you will see additional offers & display ads when using this service. These ads are not associated with any underlying website, and further information about these ads is available by clicking the "About This Ad" link in the ad display frame or as expressed in this EULA hereunder.
Social Privacy DNS is included with the Social Privacy software. This privacy protection enhancement aids in removing third-party tracking cookies from sites you visit. The Social Privacy DNS service, once installed, will: (i) Update your DNS settings; (ii) Redirect you from Non-Existent Domains (where no domain exists) and from “typo squatting” domains (domains that take advantage of a typographical error to lead you away from your intended website destination) to the web pages where you aimed to navigate, to category relevant web pages where Social Privacy may have a partnership, or to a search results page giving you additional navigation or search choices; (iii) Block you from navigating to malicious domains based on third-party database listings of known offenders; (iv) Improve your DNS performance speed in many cases (v) Redirect you from known takeover domains (where page may have been hijacked without your knowledge) to category relevant web pages where Social Privacy may have a partnership, or to a search results page giving you additional navigation or search choices.
Social Privacy DNS may be uninstalled by removing the related applications from Add/Remove Programs or Uninstall a Program section of the Control Panel on machines running the Windows operating system. A further step may be necessary in modifying the DNS settings on your computer under your Network Adapter Settings. In this case, you should choose "Obtain DNS Server Address Automatically". More information on this can be found here.
