Is your Toolbar "spyware"?
NO! We are completely "spyware" and "adware"-free. Period! Our Toolbar was specifically designed to provide a great user experience free of spyware, adware, data collection or other similar activities. In order to achieve that goal:
* The toolbar software DOES NOT monitor the websites visited by the end user, collect or in any manner report any information about what sites an end users visits (or any click stream activity), nor does it monitor or scrape information when you are on other sites.
* The toolbar software DOES NOT serve or facilitate contextual advertising or pop-up ads. Many applications are identified as spyware because they monitor end-user Internet usage and serve contextual pop-ups. Our Toolbar does not engage in any such practices.
* We do NOT require you to provide any personal information. No email address, registration or other information is required to use the product. Unlike many other products, we do not attempt to collect data upon startup as a requirement of use.
In short, the Toolbar provides a superior search experience on an ANONYMOUS basis and without any additional monitoring, contextual ads or other nuisances.
So can you explain why you think the Ask Toolbar is spyware? And why not simply uninstall it and disable it in your browser? That seems much easier to me than starting a war against Nero.
It does try to install an Ask Toolbar and that is spyware.
I have sent a large package to Master Card, contesting this. On all the pages there is nothing that states that you won't get reimbursed since both NERO-10.0.13100.exe and the registration number was sent in an email. I definitely will not buy NERO in the future. They stated that after the fact, not before, and that is really shoddy information from NERO. They Even had an opportunity to make things right with NERO 7 Utra or NERO 8 Ultra - They cannot even do that! Darrell
