The Cognifirm Plugin
The plugin includes the following roles, features, and attributes:
- Plugin: The Plugin is a script that is installed on your computer’s browser. Sometimes this way of deploying a script into a browser is also known as an Extention or a Browser Extention. We treat the terms as equal and will refer to them collectively as a Plugin.
- User: A User is a person who has installed the Plugin in a browser and is registered as a User of Cognifirm. New users will actively have to sign up for the service on either Cognifirm.com/sign-up or in the Plug in.The User will be able to benefit from Cognifirms services that include the ability to copy data from one website and paste it to another site on their behalf.
- Logged in and out: A user must actively log in with a user name and a password to enable the Plugin to function— Cognifirm stop all services and data collection when a user logged out of the Plugin.
- Process: A process is a flow that has been created by a user in the Cognifirm admin module. A process enables data to be copied and pasted automatically from one site to another. The data that are moved are selected by the User when a process is created. A user can create processes on behalf of other Users.
- Webpage: A web page is any page on a website
- Web form: A web form is a form that enables a user to key in data into the system that exposes the web form.
- Admin module: One or more users can access a module where they can create and manage processes, users and access other features that enables the Plugin to function on their behalf.
In order for the Cognifirm plugin to perform its services to the User, it will have to:
- Read content that a user pastes into any web form that a user has selected to be a part of a process.
- Paste the data from one form into another site’s form on behalf of the User on the webforms that a user has selected to be a part of a process.
- The Cognifirm plugin will also monitor users’ web browsing behavior when a User is logged into the Plugin. The Plugin will do so because it will activate itself on pages that a user has selected to be part of an active process for the User.
The service only read data on web forms that a User has selected to be a part of a process, meaning:
- Cognifirm does not collect data from web forms that are not a part of a process.
All data that is a part of a process is handled in the User’s browser and is not saved or stored by Cognifirm.
Users can terminate their use of the Cognifirm service in the admin module. This action will delete their user name and password and will remove the user from any active process.
Termination of service: Users with access to the admin module can terminate the Cognifirm service in the module. This will stop Cognifirm to function on their behalf and will delete all users and processes that they have created.
