This document is a part of Docracy's Terms of Service Tracker project, which tracks changes to terms of service and privacy policy documents of many of the world's top websites.

Search.mindspark.com ("Mindspark Search" or the "Site") is a property of Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. ("Mindspark," "we," or "us,"). Mindspark is a part of the IAC family of businesses, which includes several dozen brands such as Ask.com, Vimeo, Zwinky, Smiley Central, Girlsense, Chemistry.com, Citysearch, CollegeHumor, Dictionary.com, Evite, Match.com, Pronto, ServiceMagic, and Shoebuy. For a list of all of IAC's businesses, please visit www.iac.com.

At Mindspark, we respect the privacy of our users and the importance of the information they entrust to us. We provide this Privacy Policy so that our users ("you") will know what information is being collected about you and your activities on Mindspark Search, how that information is being used, and with whom it is being shared. This Privacy Policy describes the online privacy practices applicable to Mindspark Search and the various services we provide on or through the Site (collectively, the "Services").

By using the Site and Services, you are agreeing to the collection and use of certain information about you in the manner described in this Privacy Policy. If you install a Mindspark-offered downloadable toolbar application, including a MyWebSearch Toolbar, you will be subject to the applicable End User License Agreement associated with such toolbar that describes what information Mindspark (or Mindspark Search) collects when you use the relevant toolbar and how that information may be used.

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make any material changes in the ways we may collect, use, or share information, we will notify you by posting notice of the changes on the Site. We encourage you to periodically review our Privacy Policy to become and remain familiar with it. The Policy includes at the top of the first page the date of the most recent material change.

The Site and Services generally do not require registration or submission of an account name or email address in order to use them. However, we may offer certain Services for which registration, including the provision of an account name and email address, is required in order to be fully utilized. You would also need to provide us your email address if you submit a help request or other communication via email. The amount of information that you choose to disclose to us is completely up to you, although access to or use of some Services may be affected if information is not provided.

We use cookies and other technology such as pixel tags to track traffic flow and patterns of travel within the Site as well as websites of other Mindspark and/or IAC businesses. Cookies are a standard Internet technology that allows us to store and retrieve information on a user's system. Our web server automatically asks a new user's browser whether it will accept our cookie file. If the user's browser accepts our cookie, our web server will record the cookie's unique ID for our use in internal reporting and for customized advertising. All of your search queries and interactions with search results on the Sites are associated with your unique cookie ID. When you use the Site, or a website of another Mindspark or IAC business, we may use your cookie data to customize the Services and advertisements delivered to you.

If you would like to remove our cookies from your computer, you can delete them using your browser (consult your browser's "help" menu to learn how to delete cookies). If you choose to decline or remove cookies, please note that you may not be able to use some of the interactive features offered on the Site.

We do not use cookies to track your use of the Internet in any other way, or associate your name, email address, or personal account information with your cookie data unless you specifically ask us to do so. We do not disclose cookie information to third parties, except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy.

Use of cookies on our Site by third parties. We use third-party companies to serve advertisements when you visit the Site. These companies may use information about your visits to the Site in order to present advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you. In the course of serving advertisements on the Site, these companies may place or recognize a unique cookie on your computer or use other technologies such as pixel tags in connection with the Site. In addition, we may allow third-parties, including our authorized service providers, IAC companies, advertising companies, and ad networks, to display advertisements or place ad tags or beacons on the Site. Our Privacy Policy does not cover any use of information that a third-party ad-serving company might collect from you. These companies have their own recordkeeping and data-retention policies. If you would like to consider your options for limiting use of such information by advertising companies, or would like to learn more about this practice, please click here: http://www.networkadvertising.org.

Corporate restructuring. We also may transfer your information to a third party if we or any of our affiliates are involved in a corporate restructuring (e.g., a sale, merger, or other transfer of assets).
