Important Information Regarding Weather Warnings Software Functionality
Weather Warnings Software incorporates search functionality software (the “Software”), described as follows: The Software recognizes keywords from your Internet browser to display relevant contextual advertisements. These advertisements may be displayed on your computer screen at any time while you are searching and shopping online (and not necessarily while you are using any product or service related to or downloaded with the Software). The Software neither stores any personally identifiable information nor records your browsing behavior. Please refer to Section 11 (below) for further information about our privacy policies.
Display of Advertising.
The Software starts automatically when you start your computer, runs in the background on your computer, and may periodically direct you to our sponsors’ websites and/or show you other forms of advertisements (including the Slider or pop up format). By installing Storm Alerts and/or using the Software you grant Weather Warnings permission to periodically show you advertisements. The frequency of these advertisements will be limited. Depending on Internet activity, active users may see about five (5) advertisements per day; some may see more, some may see fewer. On occasion, you may search for a website and receive an error from your browser software indicating that the site cannot be found. When this occurs, the Software includes a function that may redirect your web browser to our sponsor’s websites based on the content of the website address, or URL, which you entered. You hereby consent to these actions. Please note that you may receive ads for Adult-oriented websites if you utilize keywords connected to, search for or view Adult websites. An Adult website is one that contains or references (whether via audio, video, audiovisual, images, sounds or text) any of the following: profanity, violence, blood and gore, weapons, use of alcohol, drugs, tobacco, online gambling, pornography, erotica, erotic images, nudity, sex, sexually explicit images, and sexual references. Weather Warnings does not permit ads that are themselves pornographic, nor does it permit advertisements for online “pay-for-play” gambling, either directly or indirectly, in the United States or other jurisdictions where such advertisements are disallowed. More generally, Weather Warnings does not permit ads promoting illegal products or illegal practices. If you believe you have received an ad that violates these prohibitions, please contact us at the web or street address listed in the last section of this Agreement. We request that you enclose a screenshot of the advertisement (including its ad label) in your communication to us.
Identification of Advertisements.
The advertisements that the Software presents are not endorsed by or affiliated with the websites that trigger their appearance. Advertisements that the Software presents are branded with a Weather Warnings brand name in, for example, the browser window. This branding will let you know that the advertisements are brought to you by Storm Alerts and not by the website you may be viewing when the advertisements are displayed.
