When installed, the Bugnosis software monitors the Web pages and e-mail viewed on that computer and makes its analysis available to the user of that computer. Bugnosis does not transmit this information over the network or otherwise automatically store the information, for example, on disk files. However, the user may choose to manually save the information by selecting 'Save,' 'Send to,' 'Print,' etc. "Bugnosis partially relies upon an internal, evolving database regarding certain businesses and their privacy practices. In order to keep this information up to date, Bugnosis will periodically ask users if they wish to download new settings from the Bugnosis Web site. This reminder can be disabled through the Bugnosis options pages. When a user downloads new settings, the Bugnosis site will receive a record of the user's computer contacting the Bugnosis site, indicating the requesting computer's IP address and the time of the request (as is typical with most Web transactions). We may use this information to investigate a software, security, or legal problem, but under ordinary circumstances the information will not be used. "Bugnosis attempts to reveal the presence of Web bugs, but makes no claim about their purpose. For example, Bugnosis may identify a Web site hit counter as a Web bug.
