IMPORTANT NOTICE TO USERS WHO DOWNLOADED THE TROVI SOFTWARE AND ITS RELATED SERVICES AND FEATURES (TOGETHER, THE “SOFTWARE”) BEFORE JANUARY 1, 2014.
Due to the restructuring of Conduit Ltd. (“Conduit”), as of January 1, 2014, the Software will be operated and provided by ClientConnect Ltd. (“ClientConnect”) d.b.a “Trovi”, instead of Conduit. For all intents and purposes, ClientConnect will be taking Conduit’s place as the party to the Agreements.
As of January 1, 2014, the Agreements, in their entirety, including all of Conduit’s rights, performance, duties, liabilities and obligations contained therein, will be assigned and delegated to ClientConnect. You agree and acknowledge that with this assignment and delegation, Conduit is released from all its duties, liabilities, and obligations under the Agreements.

The Trovi Software may include various features and content that are offered and delivered to you by the Publisher or other third parties, such as news, messages, and games, as well as features and content that you may choose to add (“Content”).
The following are the privacy practices of Trovi. Third parties must comply with these policies when providing you with Content that is included, directly or indirectly, in the Trovi Software:
Information Trovi Collects and Receives. There are several types of data being collected from you as detailed herein. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY DETAILED HEREIN, IT IS NOT NECESSARY FOR YOU TO PROVIDE TROVI WITH ANY PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION TO USE THE TROVI SOFTWARE. “Personally Identifiable Information” is information that identifies an individual, including their login credentials to a third-party website, name, postal address, and email address.
As part of the functionality provided by the Trovi Software (through the Toolbar and/or the Search Protect software products), we may collect and store information about your search activity when you use our web search services (such as search queries). This information may be shared with third-party applications that use Search Data to function, or to offer you more customized information and services. The information is collected and stored by Cookies (as explained below) and may include Personally Identifiable Information, depending on your search query. For instance, if you search your own name, Personally Identifiable Information would be included in the search query. BY USING THE SEARCH FEATURES PROVIDED BY US, YOU ARE CONSENTING TO GRANT TROVI PERMISSION TO COLLECT YOUR SEARCH QUERIES, SHARE THEM WITH THIRD PARTIES, AND USE SEARCH-RELATED COOKIES.
The Trovi Software further collects anonymous, aggregated information and non-personal data, such as Trovi Software-generated User IDs, User language, Internet Protocol (IP) address, the geographic location of the device from which you access the web, and other Trovi Software Usage Data, all of which do not include Personally Identifiable Information. We may use such information, including making it available to our service providers, partners, and other third parties. You may choose not to send Trovi Software Usage Data at any time when you disable or uninstall the Trovi Software.
The Trovi Software (including the Toolbar, the Search Protect, and the Value Apps software) may also collect and store information about your web browsing locally on your device, like the web pages that you have visited and the content you have accessed. This locally saved information may interact with the Trovi Software and send us information about your web browsing so we can suggest services or provide you with ads that may be more relevant to you, including via our Partners when using the Value Apps software. Only generalized inferences are passed from the Trovi Software to our servers.
Please note that when using Value Apps, your Browsing Data may also include information from secured web pages that you have visited. For example, it may include product codes, purchase prices, and coupons used during online purchases. This information may be collected by us and/or by our Partners within Value Apps. Note that we will neither store nor use any of your sensitive information that may appear on secured pages.
We may combine the web Search Data with other non-Personally Identifiable Information (as further detailed above, e.g. Browsing Data or Usage Data) and if we do, some of the otherwise non-Personally Identifiable Information may become Personally Identifiable Information (for example, see the following section about the Search Protect software). In addition, the Trovi Software also takes the form of apps, buttons, or gadgets that we created for your enjoyment. If this Trovi Software requires any access, collection, use, or sharing of your information – both your Personally Identifiable Information and non-Personally Identifiable Information, then we will ask for your permission prior to accessing your information.
Search Protect is a separate piece of software installed on your hard drive in connection with your installation of a Toolbar or third-party software. It is designed to change and protect your preferred Browser home page and default search settings from unintentional takeover by third-party software during redirection of service attacks. Search Protect may alert you if a third party attempts to change your Browser’s default search or home page settings. Further explanation about the Search Protect software is available in the Trovi EULA. Search Protect captures some non-Personally Identifiable Information about your Internet Browser, including your Browser search settings, your computer, and companies’ attempts to redirect your search settings, and stores this information with your Search Data (search queries and/or IP address). Trovi does not sell or rent the information you provide through Search Protect to any Third Parties. It may share the information with its wholly owned subsidiaries or partners.
Value Apps is an aggregation, categorization, and optimization platform offering Apps based on your browsing information. Value Apps is installed on your Browser or computer in connection with your installation of a Toolbar or third-party Extension. Value Apps may require use of your Personally Identifiable Information, including your IP address, the web pages you visit, and their content. When Using any of the Apps offered to you within Value Apps, the following information may be collected from you by Trovi or by our Partners: User’s Browser and version, search engine used, content viewed (images, videos, etc.), Browsing Data, Search Data, operating system, Extension name and version, and Usage Data.
Your Browsing Data and Search Data are collected and analyzed by the Value Apps platform in real time to trigger the relevant Apps you enabled, and we share such information with our Partners so our Partners or we, as applicable (depending on the App provider), can suggest services or provide you with offers that may be relevant to you according to the data collected and processed in real time. We do not store your Browsing Data nor your Search Data while you Use Value Apps.
Sharing Information with Others. We may share Personally Identifiable Information collected through your use of the Trovi Software with others in any of the following cases:
* If we reasonably believe that you have breached the Trovi Software’s EULA, misused the Trovi Software, or performed any action that we reasonably believe to be violating the applicable law or rules, or in any case of dispute of any kind involving you in connection with the Trovi Software;
* If we believe that we are required by law to disclose your information, we may share your information with law enforcement or other competent authorities and any third party, as may be required (e.g. to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues; to respond to claims or satisfy any legal process, subpoena, or governmental request; or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Trovi, its Users, its partners, or the general public);
* In the event Trovi goes through a business transition such as a merger, acquisition by another company, consolidation, change of control, reorganization, bankruptcy, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your information will be among the assets transferred;
* We may also share Personally Identifiable Information with our subsidiaries, sister companies, and parent companies, but their use of such information must comply with this Policy.
In any case other than the above, we will share your Personally Identifiable Information with others only if we receive your prior consent.
Aggregated or Anonymized Information. Trovi Software collects anonymized as well as aggregated information, which does not identify you personally. Such anonymized or aggregated information may include technical information related to Users’ computers, applications installed thereon, etc. Such information may be used in any way, including posting, disseminating, transmitting or otherwise communicating or making it available to our partners or affiliates, as well as any other third party.
The Publisher or you may choose to add Content to the Trovi Software (i.e. the Toolbar). The Content may be in the form of apps, buttons, gadgets, and other means that are provided to you by third parties. The use of these third parties’ Content is subject to their privacy policies. In addition, Trovi, as a platform provider, provides the Publisher and other third parties with a large number of tools to enable them to create interesting and unique apps, buttons, and gadgets using the Trovi platform. Some of these tools may give these third parties the ability to access, collect, store, and/or share your information – both your Personally Identifiable Information and non-Personally Identifiable Information. We or these third parties will ask for your consent to access, collect, store, or share your information prior to accessing it. If you have any questions about the Third-Party Content, please contact these third parties before approving and/or using and/or activating their apps.
You may also choose to activate additional features that provide you with the ability to update and use your favorite social networks directly from the Toolbar. During such activation, you will be asked to grant Trovi permission to compile certain information from such social network systems. This information may include friends or contact lists, notes, updates, and photos, and may be used by Trovi to customize the Content of your Toolbar, suggest new features and Content that may be relevant to you, or provide Trovi with data for statistical purposes. The information you allow Trovi to access is that which is presented to you when you choose to activate these features. If you elect to permit Trovi to access this information, Trovi may be able to see and use this information and such action may change your preexisting privacy settings, however Trovi does not have control over privacy settings in your social network account. Please see your social network provider policies for any questions or concerns. It is important to note that Trovi does not sell or rent Personally Identifiable Information it compiles from such social networks to any third parties. Trovi may provide non-identifiable, general statistical, and demographic information to its Publishers from time to time. You may opt not to grant Trovi access to your social network account(s) at any time by changing your social network settings or by not authorizing Trovi access.
Third-Party Websites and Offers.
Each Toolbar includes a new search box for your use and enjoyment. In addition, while installing the Toolbar, you may voluntarily opt to change your home page, other search-related preferences, add components, receive notifications and offers, or enable other features provided to you by the Publisher or other third parties (such as the Value Apps which may be provided to you by Trovi and its Partners). You can agree or disagree to receive these options. If you disagree, those options will not be activated.
