    It's not really spyware, they're telling you pretty bluntly up front what they're going to do.

    True, in the true meaning...spy is something/someone that goes by undetetected...where as kermi said....it does what spyware does but with our permission. so in fact, it's not spyware.

    Another good indication that it's not spyware is it probably has an uninstaller that actually works.
    The crows maintain that a single crow could destroy the heavens. Doubtless this is so. But it proves nothing against the heavens, for the heavens signify simply: the impossibility of crows.
