EmailTheWeb has the option to optionally link to your Google Contacts. In no uncertain terms will EmailTheWeb ever permentally store or copy any of your contacts' information or send them anything other than your specific emails. However, EmailTheWeb may temporarily cache your contacts' information to improve perfomance of the site.

How does EmailTheWeb use the information collected?
We use aggregate user information to enhance the user experience in our network of sites. We use tracking information to determine how well each page performs overall based on aggregate user demographics and traffic patterns to those pages. This helps us continue to build a better service for you. We also use the information to fulfil your requests for certain services, such as managing your third party relationships, sending out information on topics you agree to receive, taking actions on your suggestions and complaints or requests etc.

Does EmailTheWeb use cookies?
EmailTheWeb uses persistent cookies to help us determine who you are when you move through the EmailTheWeb system. This saves you time so that you don't have to sign in every time you want to use EmailTheWeb again.

Use of Cookies
A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

EmailTheWeb may include web beacons in email messages in order to count how many messages have been opened and acted upon. Web beacons are not used to access your personal information on the EmailTheWeb sites and services; they are a technique we use to compile aggregated statistics about EmailTheWeb web site usage. Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Web beacon resides.
