Privacy and Your Personal Information
Description of the Service
As part of our service we connect you with actions you can take that are related to a website you are viewing. To work, Brutus needs to collect information from the website you are viewing.
The data we collect so Brutus can function is…
Information on which IP address opened which URL. Brutus stores the URLs opened for the last 3,000 uses across all users. This allows for quicker return of results on recently opened (the last 3,000 URLs) for all users so that website which are popular return results faster. (We don’t know how long the average URL is stored, because we are just launching. Once we have data on this we will be sure to provide an estimated time and we will continue to update the number).
We collect information on how users are using Brutus. Specifically we collect information on “how many times a user opens Brutus” and “how many times a user then choose to click on a link to an external website presented by Brutus”.
The Service is provided by Brutus for free. Right now we don’t make any money. We hope to remedy this soon and promise to be upfront and clear about how we end up making money when it happens (wish us luck).
