Claria To Stop Spying

Yeah right... and I'll be 21 next week!!!!

Ok so I shouldn't be too sarcastic, Claria are actually telling people to uninstall their software.

Claria will stop displaying GAIN pop-up and other ads on July 1, 2006 and will stop supporting all GAIN Supported Software on October 1, 2006. After October 1, 2006, GAIN software may not function properly.

Our software will continue to collect data about your web usage from your computer for research and other purposes as described in our Privacy Statement until September 30, 2006, unless you uninstall the software before this date.

It is recommended that you uninstall all of GAIN Supported Software presently on your computer. To view a list of GAIN Supported Software installed on the computer you are currently using click here

So they are still going to be collecting information on you for research purposes... like they kill whales for research purposes... unless you uninstall of course.

Well I suppose there is a first time for everything. If you are a fan of Claria software and have it installed on your computer then there is more information at Claria's site
