What is estaciodesa Toolbar?

estaciodesa Toolbar is a Conduit web browser plugin for Intenet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox that collects and stores information about a user's web browsing habits and sends this information to Conduit in order to provide advertising. It will change the user's home page and search provider during installation (optional but enabled by default) and provides a search box and various social features. If the home page and search settings were modified by this toolbar, they need to be manually reverted back by the user if the user decides to uninstall the toolbar. According to the License Agreement, "The Application may also collect and store information about your web browsing locally on your device. This locally saved information may interact with the Application and send us information about your web browsing so we can suggest services or provide you ads that may be more relevant to you. Only generalized inferences are passed from the Application to our servers."
