The Toolbar collects the following information:
* A unique identification reference is generated for each Toolbar installation. This is sent back to us when the Toolbar attempts to download updated versions of its software and is used for planning and licensing purposes. This is not sent as part of the Toolbar's normal operation when browsing the web.
* Web sites (not URLs) visited when browsing the web. These are used to provide contextual reports and popularity ranking information for the site being browsed.
* Secure hashes of URLs visited when browsing the web. These are used to defend against phishing sites by comparing the hash against a list of hashes of previously reported phishing URLs and blocking the page if a match is found. There is no other case in which we can determine the URL of the page you have visited from the hash which we receive.
* The Toolbar does not collect any personal information except that described above. In particular, we do not collect personal information which can identify the browsing habits of individual users.
