Ghostery® is a free downloadable browser extension that helps you to see what companies are tracking you (“Trackers”) on any given website for interest based advertising purposes. With this information you can learn more about these Trackers and therefore exercise personal control over this activity. Ghostery does not collect any information about you like your name, address, email address or the like. We don’t want that information. We will tell you more about what we DO collect later in this Privacy Statement. But know this: We don’t track you, that isn’t what we do. We don’t collect information about you and we don’t know who you are when you download Ghostery. And now for lawyer stuff.
