For example, Mindspark records you clicks, the websites you view, search terms, browser type, default language settings, and some other anonymous information. This type of data is collected by various browser add-ons, and the purposes of data collected are more or less the same. The developers of the toolbar want to understand your preferences, improve the quality of the service, be able to solve your issues concerning the use their product, etc. If you do not want to be monitored by the BetterBabyGuide toolbar and the search engine Ask.com, remove the browser extension and shield the system against malware and spyware programs.
