Image Number 4 for United States Patent #7216120.

An information collection apparatus working as an agent of a plurality of client terminals for collecting information from an information providing server. A plurality of requested-item lists are stored in the requested-item list table, one for each client terminal. Each requested-item list is composed of a plurality of requested-items identifying a plurality of information items to be obtained by each client terminal. An information manager, which has the function of a combining processor, combines the contents of a plurality of requested-item lists to create a collection list. The collection list is composed of a plurality of collection items identifying a plurality of information to be collected by the information collection apparatus.
