certain information as part of the registration process. (We may
ask, for example, for your name, email address, sex, age, and PIN
code, and we might request information on your occupation, interests,

we invoke a standard feature of browser software, called a "cookie",
to assign each visitor a unique, random number (a sort of user ID)
that resides on your computer. The cookie does not personally identify
the visitor as an individual; rather, cookies merely identify the
computer that a visitor uses to access our sites. Unless you voluntarily
identify yourself (through registration, for example), we will have
no way of knowing who you are, even if we assign a cookie to your
computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is
information you supply (an example of this is when you ask for our
Personalised Horoscope). A cookie cannot read data off your hard
drive. Our advertisers may also assign their own cookies to your

web servers automatically collect limited information about your
computer's connection to the Internet, including your IP address,
when you visit our websites. (Your IP address is a number that lets
computers attached to the Internet know where to send you data --
such as the web pages you view.) Your IP address does not identify
you personally. We use this information to deliver our web pages
to you upon request, to tailor our websites to the interests of our
users, to measure traffic within our websites and let advertisers know
the geographic locations from where our visitors come.
Today Group Online includes links to other websites whose privacy
policies we do not control. Once you leave our servers (you can
tell where you are by checking the URL in the location bar on your
browser), use of any information you provide is governed by the
of any of these sites via a link from the site's homepage, you should
contact the site directly for more information.

content and features that we believe may be of interest to you.
