The Gator Corporation
Privacy Statement and End User License Agreement
("Terms and Conditions")
The Gator Corporation ("TGC") provides personal computer users with a winning proposition: the ability to obtain popular software applications (often valued at up to $30) free-of-charge or at a reduced cost in exchange for users' agreement to accept advertising and other promotional messages delivered by TGC to users' personal computers. Downloading or installing these ad-supported software applications requires acceptance of these Terms and Conditions which allows TGC to download and install the "GAINsm AdServer" software, which delivers "GAIN" branded advertising, software, and various informational or promotional messages to computer screens while users view Internet Web pages ("GAIN Ads"). When available, users may obtain ad-free versions of TGC's software applications by purchasing a license to such versions in which case the user will not receive advertising, but TGC will collect and use the information described in these Terms and Conditions for all the other purposes described herein. Direct a brows
er to http://www.gatorcorporation.com/ourproducts/
to purchase licenses to ad-free versions of TGC's software applications.
The GAIN AdServer is patent-pending technology that identifies the interests of anonymous computer users based on their computer usage and web surfing behavior, including the URLs of Web pages viewed by users and other criteria but which does not collect ANY personally identifying information. The GAIN AdServer displays GAIN Ads on computer screens on behalf of TGC's advertising clients and not on behalf of the Web site the user may be viewing when the ad appears. TGC's advertising clients may be competitors of the publishers whose Web pages users may be viewing, or may have recently viewed. GAIN Ads are distinguishable from other ads or messages because all GAIN Ads contain the trademark "GAIN" in the title bar and/or the GAIN logo in the ad.
"GAIN-Supported Software" includes both software applications published by TGC ("TGC GAIN-Supported Software"), as well as software applications developed by other companies ("Third Party GAIN-Supported Software"). For a list of GAIN-Supported Software published by TGC, view the Web page at: http://www.gatorcorporation.com/ourproducts/.
At any time, you can see a list of all GAIN-Supported Software residing on a computer by directing that computer's Internet browser to http://webpdp.gator.com/gain/32/about-gain-01.html.
Unless otherwise specified, these Terms and Conditions apply to TGC GAIN-Supported Software but do not apply to Third Party GAIN-Supported Software. Third-party GAIN-Supported Software is governed by that third-party's legal agreements.
These Terms and Conditions shall control in the event of any inconsistency between these Terms and Conditions and any prior Gator Corporation terms and conditions agreed to.
