Category Description: Program that delivers advertisements on your PC.

Note that many websites have their own advertising, unrelated to adware.

Adware is any software application in which advertising is displayed while the program is running. The authors of these applications include additional code that delivers the ads, which can be viewed through pop-up windows or through a bar that appears on a computer screen and sometimes through text links or in integrated search results. Adware may or may not track personal information. It may also gather information anonymously or in aggregate only. Users should check the EULA and Privacy policy to ensure if the adware on their machines conforms to their standards.
Comment: From the Website:
PriceBandit's mission is to save Internet shoppers time, money and aggravation. WhenU.com, Inc. ("WhenU.com") respects the privacy of PriceBandit users, and at the same time tries to provide highly valuable and useful services. In order to achieve this:

WhenU.com's policy is not to share any user's personal information or usage behavior with third parties, unless permission to do so is given by the user.
Users may periodically receive an email alerting them to various offers or information (from WhenU.com or from others).
WhenU.com may collect user information such as gender, age and zip code to compile anonymous trend information about Internet and WhenU.com usage patterns. WhenU.com compiles statistics by aggregating information across large numbers of users. These statistics may be provided to third parties.

When you elect to download there toolbar you also get Savenow.

Note: WhenU has made changes in distribution practices and to our knowledge no longer uses third parties or bundling to distribute their application. Distribution appears to be in-house only and bundles only contain WhenU products. Research shows that WhenU now makes it clear that advertising will be shown in the End-User License Agreement (EULA)

Users who desire this shopping application should not remove.
