Types of Information

“Personal Information” is information that you provide to us that personally identifies you, such as your name, phone number or email address. Except as described below, iLegendSoft does not collect or require users of the Mercury Browser to provide Personal Information.

“Non-Personal Information” is information that cannot be directly associated with a specific person or entity. Non-Personal Information includes but is not limited to your device’s configuration and the version of Mercury Browser that you use.

“Potentially Personal Information” is information that its Non-Personal Information in and of itself, but that could be used in conjunction with other information to personally identify you. For example, Uniform Resource Locators (“URLs”) (the addresses of web pages) or Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses (the addresses of computers on the Internet), which are Non-Personal Information in and of themselves, could be Personal Information when combined with Interest service provider (“ISP”) records.

“Aggregate Data” is information that is recorded about users and collected into groups so that it no longer reflects or references an individually identifiable user.

Information Mercury Browser Sends to Websites and ISPs

Mercury Browser, like other web browsers, sends Non-Personal Information and Potentially Personal Information to the websites you visit when requested by the website. This may include the type of browser you are using, the type of device you are using (desktop or mobile), your language preference, the referring site, and your IP address. This information may be logged by the websites you visit and the Internet Service Provider you use. What information is logged and how that information is used varies based on the policies of each individual website you visit and the ISPs you use.

Each website determines its own privacy practices for the distribution and use of this Non- Personal Information and Potentially Personal Information. If you care about how a website will use this information, you should check the privacy policy for that website.

Information iLegendSoft collect when you use Mercury Browser

You do not need to provide any Personal Information in order to download and use Mercury Browser. When you download Mercury Browser, Mercury Browser receives only standard Non-Personal Information that web browsers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. iLegendSoft’s purpose for collecting Non-Personal Information is to better understand how Mercury’s users use the Mercury Browser. From time to time, iLegendSoft may release Non-Personally Information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

In addition, some Mercury Browser features may send limited additional information to iLegendSoft including:

ŸSearch UR. This is Non-Personal Information. When you type URLs or queries in the address bar, the letters you type are sent to your default search engine, so that the search engine’s autocomplete / prediction feature can automatically recommend terms or URLs you may be looking for. If you choose Google as your search engine, Mercury Browser will contact Google when it starts so as to determine the best local address to send search queries.

ŸCrash-Reporting Feature.

This is Non-Personal Information. Mercury has a crash-reporting feature that sends a log report to Mercury Support when Mercury crashes. iLegendSoft uses the information in the crash reports to diagnose and correct the problems in Mercury Browser that caused the crash. This feature sends a variety of Non-Personal Information to iLegendSoft, including the stack trace (a detailed description of which parts of the Mercury Browser code were active at the time of the crash) and the type of mobile device you are using, your Mercury crash frequency data .

ŸEnable Location Feature.

This is Non-Personal Information. This feature remains inoperative until you visit a website that requests your location and you choose to opt in to the feature. If you elect not to, nothing happens. Each time you visit such a website, Mercury Browser asks you if you want it to provide the site with your current location. Additionally, you may elect to have Mercury Browser remember your choice to allow or not allow the feature for each site. You are able to opt out at any time of having Mercury Browser remember your choice, just like any other preference setting. Our policy is to require third-party providers to enter into licensing agreements with us which prohibit them from releasing Personal or Potentially Personal Information to the public. We only permit our third party providers to use this information in connection with the service(s) they are providing to us. They are required to ensure that any information collected on our behalf is anonymized and aggregated before they are permitted to use such information to develop new features or products and services, or to improve the overall quality of their products and services. This means that they are required to ensure that your IP address and unique identifier of your client will be stripped out before being used by any of our third party provider’s other products or features. For more information on how our geolocation services providers use information sent by Mercury Browser, please see the privacy policy links in our list of third party service providers. Please carefully consider any website or service provider’s privacy practices before agreeing to share your location.

ŸUpdate Service.

This is Potentially Personal Information. This feature periodically checks if a newer version of Mercury Browser is released. Specifically, this feature checks the package ID and the version of Mercury Browser on your device. Using this information, iLegendSoft provides you a newer version of Mercury Browser and recommends novel features.

ŸUsage Statistics.

This is Non-Personal Information. Mercury Browser includes functionality to send iLegendSoft non-personal usage, performance, and responsiveness statistics about user interface features and hardware configuration. Usage statistics are transmitted using SSL (a method of protecting data in transit) and help us improve future versions of Mercury Browser.
