If your home page has been changed to home.sweetim.com, it is likely that you have installed Sweetpacks onto your personal computer. The application allows you to apply various emoticons and smileys within IM and webmail accounts. The application is available at the official website sweetim.sweetpacks.com, and here you can find the company’s Privacy Policy. It is recommended that you read this document before installing the browser add-on. If the application is already activated, certain Privacy Policy statements (see below) could make you want to delete Sweetpacks without further delay.

The Company uses the services of a third party company to help it measure the effectiveness of its advertising and how visitors use Software. To do this, the Company uses Web beacons and cookies

We may use an outside advertising company to display advertisements on the Site and Software. These ads may contain cookies. The advertisement company may collect cookies received with outside ad banners.

Is it dangerous to have your personal data collected by web cookies? If the program is legitimate and the collected information is guarded appropriately, there should be no security issues with data recording. Despite this, the story is different with third party cookies. It is impossible to say who Sweetpacks are affiliated to and if the third-party members do not have malignant intensions. Needless to say, it is not secure to have your data collected by unfamiliar companies and members. This is why it is important that you browse the wen with care, ignore appearing pop-ups or, better yet, remove Sweetpacks altogether.
