""" For us, "personal information" means information which identifies you, like your name or email address.""""
Any information that falls outside of this is "non-personal information." """
THATS IT?! The means everything else is NON-personal. IP address is like looking somebody up in phonebook.
***** How do we learn information about you?****
you give it to us directly (e.g., when you choose to send us crash reports from Firefox); we collect it automatically through our products and services (e.g., when we check whether your version of Firefox is up to date);
we collect it automatically through our products and services (e.g., when we check whether your version of Firefox is up to date);
someone else tells us information about you (e.g., Thunderbird works with your email providers to set up your account); or
when we try and understand more about you based on information you've given to us (e.g.,WHEN WE USE YOUR IP ADDRESS to customize language for some of our services).**
*** What do we do with your information once we have it?
When you give us personal information, we will use it in the ways for which you've given us permission. GENERALLY, we use your information to help us provide and improve our products and services for you.*****
So what else is it used for? I would suggest everybody to read and come to their own conclusions. I personally have some concerns here because we all know what is out there. Gathering info from a FREE addon is not in the least bit difficult. I hope I am totally wrong but the wording in About Lightbeam leaves me with zero trust and I have removed it.

I am not quite sure why so many have been unable to get Lightbeam going. I find it very useful. Kind of like a family tree it can go off in all different directions and at times will seem surreal at just how many third party sites you connect with even with tons of security software. I just open Lightbeam in a window all by itself and gather the info so I can weed out the unwanted.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52-signed).
