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

and to help Audible Magic conduct tests on the quality of its operation.
