Type: Adware
Also Known As: Screen Scenes
Created By: Claria
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 their website:
"ScreenScenes screensavers are provided free, because they are supported by advertising from the GAIN Network, which helps keep many popular software applications free in exchange for delivering advertising. As you surf the Web, you will occasionally see GAIN branded ads (pop-ups and others) selected based on your online activities. These ads are displayed by GAIN AdServer Software - not by any Web site."
These screen savers can be bought or downloaded for "free". The free downloads are ad-supported.
