During your use of the InstallCore delivery and installation platform for the purpose of installing third party software and third party mobile Applications (“Additional Offers”), InstallCore gathers information from your computer.
What Information Does InstallCore Collect and for What Purpose?
We collect two types of data and information from you:

The Non-Personal Information also includes user ID, session ID which is your User ID and timestamp, File ID which is the program the user wants to download, and the URL of the web page which you arrive from. The Platform retains a unique identifier that is created by using some of your system's variables, such as hard driver serial number and other hardware information. Please note that the generated User ID cannot be associated or reverse inferred to indicate a particular person and cannot to de-anonymize or divulge user identity. This information is retained so that InstallCore can audit and track installations, statistically analyze usage, audit its affiliates and calculate payments to 3rd parties based on such installations.
In addition we collect information regarding the installation process, including with regard to the Software and Additional Offers presented to you via InstallCore and installed on your computer or mobile device and technical information regarding the installation process, such as success/failure, duration, malfunctions, errors, etc. The installation information is used to provide, maintain and improve InstallCore's operation and services.
This technical Non-Personal Information is used by our servers to provide, maintain and improve the InstallCore operation and services, such as (without limitation) by verifying that any installed Software and Additional Offers are compatible with your computer or mobile device; by determining which Additional Offers and of what version should be offered to you and installed on your computer or mobile device; by correlating errors with certain technical information for debugging purposes; and by creating and managing statistics to guide future improvements and developments.
(b) The second type of information we collect is Personal Information - “Personal Information” is information that identifies or may identify you, or may be of a private or sensitive nature. When you send us your name and e-mail address through the “contact us for” field, we retain this information. In addition, the Personal Information we collect include your IP address and information gathered by searching pre-defined limited key words and terms in your search quires, cookies and browsing history. It is being collected and retained so that InstallCore can audit, track installations, and perform fraud detection checks, as well as security and compatibility verifications during the installation.
We also treat any Non-personal Information which is specifically connected or linked to any Personal Information as Personal Information, as long as such connection or linkage exists.
How is the Information Processed?
The Personal Information and Non-Personal Information we process are stored on your computer, which is then being analyzed to create statistical and profiling information that we process in order to allow better service and monitor use of InstallCore.
