Information BRAVO gathers
BRAVO gathers two types of information about users:
1) Data that users provide through optional, voluntary registration on several
of our sites, and
2) aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views
throughout our sites. Such information enables us to better tailor our content
to readers' needs and help our advertisers better understand the demographics
of our audience.
This information is used solely and exclusively for the purpose of tracking
customer software registrations and providing technical support, as is the
standard practice in the industry.
BRAVO does not provide this information to any other third parties under any
BRAVO offers free electronic newsletters to users. BRAVO gathers the e-mail
addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe. Customers may remove themselves
from any mailing list by e-mailing us. They can also subscribe to the
newsletters at the time of registration.
BRAVO occasionally conducts customer surveys to better target our content and
products to our audience. We never share any information about specific
individuals with any third party, except as noted previously.
BRAVO offers contests and sweepstakes in which we request certain personal
information. The full rules and all information about such contests are
clearly posted during such events. Information gathered is used only to verify
user identity and to contact winners and/or prize recipients, except when
specifically noted otherwise. Again, we do not share information about
specific individuals with any third party, except as noted previously.
BRAVO tracks user traffic patterns throughout their sites and this information
is correlated with data about individual users. Overall usage statistics,
according to a user's domain name, browser type and MIME type gotten by
reading this information from the browser string (information contained in
every user's browser), are also broken down. BRAVO also tracks and catalogs
the search terms that customers enter into our search tools, but this tracking
is never associated with individual users.
A cookie is a small data file that certain Web sites write to your hard drive
when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such including a
user ID that the site uses to track the pages you've visited. But the only
personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself.

Use of the information
BRAVO uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their
experience in our network of sites, whether to provide interactive or
personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based
on the interests of our users.
As stated above, BRAVO uses information that users voluntarily provide in
order to send out electronic newsletters and enable users to participate in
polls and message boards. We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular
schedule (daily or weekly, depending on the newsletter) and occasionally send
out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly
interested in something we are doing. BRAVO never shares newsletter mailing
lists with any third parties, including advertisers or partners.
We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users
like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. BRAVO does not track what
individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This
helps us continue to build a better service for you.
We track search terms entered in our search function as one of many
measures of what interests our users. But we don't track which terms a
particular user enters.
BRAVO creates aggregrate reports on userdemographics and traffic patterns
for advertisers and partners. BRAVO never shares individual personal
information with anyone.
BRAVO gives users options wherever necessary and practical, such choices
- Opting not to receive our electronic newsletters when registering for a
- Opting not to provide certain personal information when registering for
a site or service
- Opting not to participate in certain interactive areas, which completely
alleviates the need for any information from our users
Users may unsubscribe to any of our electronic newsletters at any time by
e-mailing us directly, or replying to any newsletter.
