CopySense Appliance Privacy Statement
We're here to help make sure your Audible Magic products or services work as they were intended. Several of the questions or concerns you may encounter are answered below. If you cannot find your answer here, please contact support.
Collection of Information
In the course of using the Audible Magic CopySense Appliance, information about the use of Peer-to-Peer technology on your network is gathered by the appliance. This information includes but is not limited to Protocols, Bytes, IP Addresses, Ports, Dates and Times of Transfers.
In addition, in order to intelligently block copyrighted material; the CopySense technology on the Appliance may access a remote database of registered copyrighted content. This access provides the Appliance the ability to intelligently block copyrighted file transfers. The CopySense Appliance never transfers actual data from the file transfers — it only calculates and transmits measurements used to match against the remote database. These measurements are not capable of being used to recreate the original file.
Based upon this information, the Appliance acts autonomously and without user intervention to execute the rules designated for the appliance.
Transmission and Internal Use of Information
From time to time, as Audible Magic deems necessary, certain data will be collected from each Appliance. The information collected is for statistical purposes and collected in order to help Audible Magic determine trends in Peer-to-Peer technology; improve the efficiency and/or accuracy of the Appliance and to help Audible Magic conduct tests on the quality of its operation.

This information, whether aggregated or otherwise, will not include personal information related to an identified person such as name, e-mail or postal address or other contact information and in no case will the information contain data that will identify the specific CopySense Appliance customer or their users. Audible Magic will only disclose the name of the CopySense Appliance customer or their identifying information with that customer's express written consent.
