Information Collection
Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, a home, postal or other physical address, other contact information, title, birth date, gender, occupation, industry, personal interests, other information when needed to provide a service you request.

We don't automatically collect personal information, including your email address. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our Web site you visit and how long you spend there. This is used to determine which pages receive the most traffic. We do not link your IP address to any personal information. Like many other commercial Web sites, the Hypersweep Web site may use a standard technology called a "Cookie" to store information about how you use the site.

Cookies and Tracking Technology
A cookie is a small data file that certain Web sites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to follow your progress across pages within this site, and give you customized information on each page you've visited, but the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Cookies can only be saved to your computer as raw text, and cannot convey viruses, or otherwise harmful, or privacy invading agents. Hypersweep does not correlate this information with data about individual users, nor does it share this information or sell it to any third party. If you prefer not to receive cookies from Hypersweep, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use any area of the Web site, however the Web site will work more reliably, and securely if cookie use is accessible.
