10.E-mail This To A Friend.
Users of the Web portal may choose to electronically forward a link, page, or documents
to another by clicking "e-mail this to a friend". Users must provide their email
address, as well as the e-mail address of the recipient. This information is used
by Commanding View in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the
recipient know who sent the email.
Commanding View may offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their
opinions with other users and see what our audience thinks about important issues.
Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to
any particular user. Commanding View may use a system to "tag" users after they
have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not
correlated with information about individual users.
Commanding View may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target its content
to its audience. Commanding View sometimes shares the aggregated demographic information
in these surveys with its sponsors, advertisers, and partners.
