Adware.DownloadTerms

Adware.DownloadTerms, better known as DownloadTerms 1.0 is an adware program in a form of a toolbar. At first glance, it looks like a legitimate program. However, if you were seeking its download yourself you must have noticed how low it is ranked in the websites providing it.

That is because this extension is not the least bit helpful and can actually introduce your system to some dangerous infections. If you have this toolbar installed on your computer, the best that you can do to ensure your safety is remove DownloadTerms immediately.

It is entirely possible that this program has entered your system without your actual consent. That could have happened if it was bundled with freeware or shareware downloads, attached to a spam e-mail or brought in by another infection.

When Adware.DownloadTerms has already gains access to a computer, it proceeds to pursue its purpose, which is making money out of advertising. The excessive ads that slow down your browser, unsafe links and shady privacy claims are the reasons to make researchers classify this plug-in as an adware.

In their EULA, they clearly state that they do monitor your browsing activities, keep the data and that they do not accept any responsibility for the links that you will see. See this excerpt from their EULA:

1. DISPLAYING CONTENT, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION BY INSERTING INTO WEB PAGES OR DISPLAYING OVER PARTS OF SUCH WEB PAGES ADVERTISEMENTS, BANNERS OR COUPONS THAT WOULD NOT OTHERWISE APPEAR

2. COMMUNICATING WITH OUR SERVERS TO CHECK FOR NEW OFFERS, THE PLACEMENT OF OFFERS, THE DATE AND TIME YOU INSTALL AND UNINSTALL THE TOOLBAR, AND WHETHER AN UPDATED VERSION OF THE TOOLBAR IS AVAILABLE

3. MONITORING AND RECORDING THE DOMAIN NAME OF EACH PAGE YOU VIEW, THE ADVERTISEMENTS THAT APPEAR ON THESE PAGES, AND THE ADVERTISEMENTS THAT YOU CLICK

Another thing that is very alarming about the privacy is that their Privacy Policy cannot be located by the address provided in their EULA. All it shows are the two words in plain text “Privacy Policy”. Clearly, that does not make for trustworthy developers.

They state that the information they collect on you is “subject to” the aforementioned Privacy Policy, however, their reluctance to actually display it suggests that third parties may be involved and that the data may be shared. To ensure that does not happen, you should delete Adware.DownloadTerms.

The facts on the DownloadTerms toolbar prove that this is a program you absolutely cannot afford to trust. Such programs have been known to introduce dangerous infections to computers and otherwise damage the systems.

While it should be fairly uncomplicated to remove DownloadTerms, you should note that if you are facing unexpected problems while attempting to do that, your system could already be infected with dangerous threats. Do not hesitate to install SpyHunter to make sure this malicious adware does not cause any harm.
