All the legal information you’d expect to see is below, but before you get to that, there’s some other information that we thought you should know. We build these browser themes to make money. Please, don’t hate us.
We’ll never do anything inappropriate. We think too highly of you, our other users, our clients and the brands we represent to ever jeopardize any of those relationships. If we’re doing our jobs well, you’ll love your Internet even more with a Brand Thunder theme and how we help you with shopping assistants, savings tools, advertising or some other means to find you better offers and make a few dollars here and there.
For those who think a free product means free and that living on ramen and public wi-fi is a perfectly good way to run a business – we give those people options and control to adjust how and if we get a chance to earn any revenue. (We really wish they’d also talk to all the brands that want to be paid for using their images. Surprising how much you have to pay to build and giveaway a free product.)
We hope you give us a fair chance to earn something for what we believe is an exceptional product.
No Spyware, No Adware
The Theme does not collect any personal information about you (such as your name, email address, etc.). Further, it does not: (a) collect or report back to us (or anyone else) any information about your activities on sites you visit on the Internet; (b) serve pop-ups when you are browsing the Internet or any other time; or (c) collect or report back to us (or anyone else) any data regarding your computer keystrokes or other data unrelated to the services the Theme provides. To improve your user experience, the Theme or its search partners may analyze search terms or your IP address in order to offer suggested web destinations and targeted advertising for products or services you are interested in. If you enter personal information as a search term, that information may be analyzed in the previously described way.
Anonymous Theme Usage Statistics. In order to continue to provide the high-quality Themes to you and to other Users, we do need certain statistics about how our Themes are used. To facilitate this, the Theme includes one or more unique application numbers that are not associated with you or your Brand Thunder account (if you have chosen to register with us). These numbers are sent to us when you install or uninstall the Theme and when the Theme periodically contacts our servers, for example, to request automatic updates or to provide us with usage statistics about that Theme, such as whether it is active, default settings and total usage of other features of the Theme, including links to third-party applications or sites (“Usage Statistics”). All Usage Statistics are recorded on a non-personally identifiable basis and is kept strictly anonymous.
We may use Usage Statistics to improve the Themes and other products and services we offer, to detect and protect us against error, fraud and other criminal activity, and may disclose anonymous Usage Statistics to third-parties with whom we do businesses.
Children. We do not use the Service to knowingly solicit data from or market to children under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with personally identifiable information without their consent, he or she should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will delete such information from our files.
