What does Covenant Eyes monitor?
Covenant Eyes records and provides ratings for URLs.
What is a URL?
Most websites are made up of stories, links, photos, images, ads and art, and typically each of these elements are assigned an individual Web address called a URL.
Covenant Eyes captures URLs generated by your computer and then provides a rating for each one. It also captures the time and date when the URL (stories, images, etc.) appeared on your computer screen.
You are likely familiar with the term Internet history. This is typically a list of website addresses, or URLs, that have appeared in the address bar of your Internet browser (such as Internet Explorer and Firefox). Covenant Eyes captures these URLs, plus all of the URLs (photos, stories, ads, etc.) that make up each Web page viewed.
Covenant Eyes also captures URLs that are activated by spyware, which is often the source of pop-up ads.
Finally, Covenant Eyes captures URLs generated by computer programs, which access the Internet for updates, advertising, etc. Most of these program URLs go unnoticed and only appear in the Detailed Browsing Log.
What Covenant Eyes does not monitor
Covenant Eyes is not a “keylogger,” meaning it does not capture the keystrokes you enter. This means our Service does not record sensitive or private information, such as e-mail messages, instant messages, chat conversations, or any information you enter into text fields, whether as innocuous as a Facebook status or as sensitive as your credit card information.
