From the developer:
In downloading and/or installing the Web Savings From Ebates Software, you are legally and with
full authority requesting that Ebates do the following on your behalf: 1)pop up brief alerts when
you can save money by shopping through Ebates or by using the Web Savings From Ebates Software.
2)direct your traffic to the merchant you wish to purchase from. This may be done a)by presenting
a choice in a pop up alert asking whether you wish to save by shopping through Ebates, thereby
directing your browser through Ebates in order to ensure you earn a reward, or b)by automatically
routing you through Ebates and automatically earning you a cash-back discount with no further
action on your part being necessary. 3) disable or uninstall any other product or software tool
that might interfere with the operability of Web Savings From Ebates Software or otherwise preempt
or render inoperative Web Savings From Ebates Software in a manner that might jeopardize the ability
of Ebates to earn you cash back discounts or coupon savings offered by Ebates. In installing Web
Savings From Ebates Software, you authorize Ebates to disable, uninstall, or delete any application
or software that might, in Ebates' opinion nullify its function and put you at risk of loosing the
cash-back savings that Web Savings From Ebates Software is designed to earn you. 4)If you would like
to utilize another savings tool, you can simply uninstall Web Savings From Ebates Software before
installing a competitive application. Web Savings From Ebates Software can be easily uninstalled
through the standard 'add or remove programs' control panel, or through Web Savings From Ebates
preference settings. If you have any trouble uninstalling the Web Savings From Ebates, please
