identifies you, such as your name, email address or billing information, or
other data which can be reasonably linked to such information by BONZI.

BONZI Account and providing us with
some personal information (typically your name, email address and a password).

3. What is a cookie?
A "cookie" is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to
your computer when you visit a website. When you visit the website again, the
cookie allows that site to recognize your browser. Cookies may store user
preferences and other information. You can reset your browser to refuse all
cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some website
features or services may not function properly without cookies.
4. What are server logs?
Like most Web sites, our servers automatically record the page requests made
when users visit our sites. These "server logs" typically include your web
request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and
time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your
Here is an example of a typical log entry where the user is loading the home
page from the Table of Contents, followed by a breakdown of its parts:
2005-10-25 05:33:14 GET /main.cfm 126.96.36.199 HTTP/1.1 Mozilla/4.0+
- 188.8.131.52 is the Internet Protocol address assigned to the user by the
user's ISP; depending on the user's service, a different address may be assigned
to the user by their service provider each time they connect to the Internet;
- 2005-10-25 05:33:14 is the date and time of the request;
- /main.cfm is the requested URL (including any optional parameters);
is the browser and operating system being used; and
- http://rireferees.gameofficials.net/toc.cfm is the page that contained the
link to the page being logged..
5. What information does BONZI receive if I click on a link
displayed on BONZI?
When you click on a link displayed on BONZI, the fact that you clicked on
the link may be sent to BONZI. In this way, BONZI is able to record
information about how you use our site and services.
We use this information to improve the quality of our services and for other
business purposes. For example, BONZI can use this information to determine how
often users are satisfied with the first result of a query and how often they
proceed to later results. Similarly, BONZI can use this information to
determine how many times an advertisement is clicked in order to calculate how
much the advertiser should be charged.
6. What is sensitive information?
"Sensitive personal information" includes information we know to be related
to age, finances, confidential medical information, racial or ethnic origins, political or
religious beliefs or sexuality and tied to personal information.
7. What is aggregated non-personal information?
"Aggregate non-personal information" is information that is recorded about
users and collected into groups so that it no longer reflects or references an
individually identifiable user.
8. URLs and embedded information
Some of our services, send the uniform resource locators ("URLs")
of web pages that you request to
BONZI. When you use these services, BONZI will receive and store the URL sent
by the web sites you visit, including any personal information inserted into
those URLs by the web site operator. Some BONZI services enable you to opt-in or
opt-out of sending URLs to BONZI, while for others the sending of URLs to BONZI is
intrinsic to the service. When you sign up for any such service, you will be
informed clearly that the service sends URLs to BONZI, and whether and how you
can opt-in or opt-out.
For example, when you submit information to a web page (such as a user login
ID or registration information), the operator of that web site may "embed" that
information - including personal information - into its URL (typically, after a
question mark ("?") in the URL). When the URL is transmitted to BONZI, our
servers automatically store the URL, including any personal information that has
been embedded after the question mark. BONZI does not exercise any control over
these web sites or whether they embed personal information into URLs.
9. What protections do I have against intrusions by the
government into my use of BONZI services?
BONZI does comply with valid legal process, such as search warrants, court
orders, or subpoenas seeking personal information. These same processes apply to
all law-abiding companies. As has always been the case, the primary protections
you have against intrusions by the government are the laws that apply to where
