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.

From EULA :

1.ContextPlus (CP) will periodically deliver advertisements and promotional messages to your computer based, in part, on your interests as shown by the websites you view.

2.ContextPlus AdServer software, described in detail below, delivers ContextPlus advertising and various informational or promotional messages to computer screens while users view Internet Web pages ("ContextPlus Ads"). The "ContextPlus Network" is an advertising network that delivers advertisements from the ContextPlus Network's advertising clients to users of ContextPlus Supported Software ("Subscribers"). The ContextPlus AdServer technology identifies the interests of anonymous Subscribers based on their computer usage and web surfing behaviour, including the URLs of Web pages viewed by Subscribers and other criteria but does not intentionally collect ANY personally identifying information.

3.The ContextPlus AdServer displays ContextPlus Ads on computer screens on behalf of the ContextPlus Network's advertising clients and not necessarily on behalf of the Web site the Subscriber may be viewing when the ad appears.

4.In fact, the ContextPlus Network's advertising clients may be competitors of the publishers whose Web pages Subscribers may be viewing, or may have recently viewed.

5.ContextPlus Ads may be displayed on behalf of advertisers who may be competitors of the publishers of the Web pages Subscribers are viewing or have recently viewed.
