All browsers must close to install the Software, and the Software will be automatically enabled upon restart.

All rights not expressly granted to you under this Agreement are reserved by BetterAds.
2. HOW WE MAY MODIFY THIS AGREEMENT.
We are constantly innovating in order to provide the best possible experience for our users. You acknowledge and agree that the form, features or nature of the Software which BetterAds provides may change from time to time without prior notice to you. We may also cease or discontinue providing the Software or upgrades for the Software at any time.
3. DESCRIPTION OF SOFTWARE
The BetterAds Software allows you to modify the advertisements you see on web sites. You agree to permit the Software to find and replace advertisements on the web sites you visit. The ads shown by BetterAds are not associated with or endorsed by the underlying web sites.
Our goal is to help you see better ads across the web so we will do our best to block and prevent low quality advertisements ("Nuisance Creative") such as, but not limited to, ads that blink, ads that shake, ads that automatically play audio or video, ads that resemble error dialogs, ads that cover the whole page, ads for a mature audience, ads that pop up, surveys that pop up, suggestive ads, and ads that promote malware. Unfortunately, we can't examine every advertiser on the Internet so our ability to block Nuisance Creative is not complete or full-proof as a solution to the Nuisance Creative problem. BetterAds neither guarantees nor warrants that the Software will identify and prevent all Nuisance Creative for you.
