GetCouponsFast Toolbar Description
GetCouponsFast may arrive on the computer in freeware bundles and may be installed as an optional component to software that is supported by Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. When users install the version for Internet Explorer, the installer would look for other browsers as well and apply changes to the user's configuration. What this means is that the GetCouponsFast Toolbar would make sure your browser behaves the same way and load Hp.myway.com/getcouponsfast/ttab02/ as your homepage, new tab page, and default search provider. The version of GetCouponsFast for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox does not transfer settings to other browsers. However, GetCouponsFast is deemed as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) that provides users with a customized search on Hp.myway.com/getcouponsfast/ttab02/ and search suggestions based on your Internet history, bookmarks collection and downloads log.
The information collected by GetCouponsFast may include your IP address, approximate geographical location, Windows version, a list of installed programs and recent downloads. The data may be used by Mindspark and its partners to feed you personalized commercial offers on Hp.myway.com/getcouponsfast/ttab02/. The GetCouponsFast Toolbar is not a standalone service and may provide links to pages like Getitfree.us, Freebieshark.com and Smartsource.com only. Consequently, GetCouponsFast delegates its tasks to other services and Mindspark makes money from your traffic on Hp.myway.com/getcouponsfast/ttab02/. PC users that are not comfortable with GetCouponsFast and require advanced tools to find coupons may be willing to remove the program using a trusted anti-spyware scanner that can delete the tracking cookies imported by GetCouponsFast.
