ICONIX, Inc. is committed to protecting the privacy of each user who navigates the Site or uses the Iconix Truemark service. In general, you can browse the Site or use the Truemark service without providing any "Personally Identifiable Information". Personally Identifiable Information means any identifier that permits the physical or online contacting or identification of a specific individual.
This Policy describes how we collect and use Personally Identifiable Information.
Our Website. We collect generally available computer system information, including, but not limited to the domain name, IP address, referral link, operating system, and browser type and version being used to access the Site. We collect the email addresses or other contact data of those who communicate with us via email or otherwise, user-specific information on what pages you access or visit, and information volunteered by you, such as survey information.
The Iconix Truemark Service. Once installed on your computer, the Iconix Truemark software uses icons to visually identify email sent to you by others. In order to provide you with this identification, the software collects information about: i) the sender that is embedded in the email and ii) the system environment (operating system version, browser type and email type) in which the plug-in runs and then transmits that information to ICONIX, Inc. ICONIX, Inc. then sends instructions to your computer to display the icons, if any, associated with the sender. ICONIX, Inc. maintains a logfile on your computer related to the system environment and the senders that are identified at http://www.iconix.com/protectsites.php. This logfile improves the performance of the software and enables the display of icons when you are off-line. This log file is transmitted to ICONIX, Inc. from time to time and is used by ICONIX, Inc. to improve its services and to provide statistical information to senders of email. Senders may include Personally Identifiable Information in email headers which ICONIX, Inc. delivers to respective Senders; for example, if Sender A includes a customer identification number in its email header, ICONIX, Inc. may deliver that email header ONLY to Sender A. ICONIX, Inc. does not retain any individual, non-aggregated Personally Identifiable Information gathered on behalf of senders and ICONIX, Inc. does not use for its own purposes any individual, non-aggregated Personally Identifiable Information gathered on behalf of senders.

This data will be used by ICONIX, Inc. to maintain its list of senders whose email is marked by ICONIX, Inc.
