n-CASE generates a log of your surfing activity, including the web pages you visit and in which order you visit them. The log is uploaded to the n-Case server and is used for marketing purpose and to open advertisements that fit you preferences.

From the vendor: The follow section describes what information n-CASE collects and how it operates:

Personal Information When you register with one of 180Solutions' distribution partners, you may be asked to provide certain personal information about yourself and your interests. In some cases, non-personally identifiable information about you may be passed to us by the partner. This may include, but is not limited to: your age, sex, geographic region and interests. Occasionally, 180Solutions may also display questions to you, inviting you to answer. Any answers you supply are covered by this privacy policy. 180Solutions does not collect or store your name, address, email address, or any other data defined as "personally identifiable information". 180Solutions uses this information to learn more about its audience. 180Solutions also uses this information to provide you with content and information most likely to be relevant to you. 180Solutions' n-CASE product also puts a "cookie" on your machine so that our technology can recognize you and display appropriate advertisements.

Tracking When n-CASE is actively running on your computer, the software generates logs of your surfing activity, including web pages you have visited and the order in which you visited these pages. These logs are then uploaded to 180Solutions' secure servers. We use these logs for market research purposes and to provide you with offers and content specifically targeted to your interests and habits. 180Solutions stores these logs on our servers, for our use. While complete URLs are collected by the software and uploaded to our servers, any personally identifiable information in those URLs is stripped away before storage in our database. We may aggregate information from these surfing logs and share the data with third parties. However, this aggregate data will never identify you individually.

nCase has been promoted by activeX pop-up windows and bundled with a large number of products, such as Kazaa, Grokster, Kazaa Download Accelerator, 2 Find MP3, Grand Canyon Screensaver, etc.

n-CASE includes an alert component, that will notify you with a pop-up window if parts of the n-CASE software has been uninstalled or disabled. The alert component runs at startup and uses random file names and registry keys which makes it harder to detect for anti-spyware software. The alert executable is located in %WinDir%. The alert pop-up will display the following:

The system has detected that a third-party application has removed n-CASE, possibly without your consent. This may cause some programs not to run as expected. Please choose an option below

-Re-install n-CASE so that your programs will run as expected. Requires internet connectivity.
-Leave n-CASE un-installed, and clean up any n-CASE files or settings that remain.
-Remind me later.

Note: %WinDir% is a variable (?). By default, this is C:\Windows (Windows 95/98/Me/XP) or C:\WINNT (Windows NT/2000).
